And you may ask yourself, what does this cable go to?
@climagic I'm guessing at a UPS, usually the large consumer/small business grade ones made by APC (I've seen similar ones myself, indeed there is a UPS in the cupboard under the stairwell that uses such a cable)
@climagic Looks like an APC UPS.
@nivex @climagic yep really looks like APC USB cable:
@climagic Maybe some more modern Cisco-device, which finally uses USB rather than Serial.
@climagic My guess is that there's an FTDI chip in the USB end and it's a console cable for some kind of network equipment, probably Cisco.
@climagic You plug one end in to a computer, right?
And then you plug the other in to a PoE jack, and fry the USB controller on the computer.
@climagic that’s how you charge your home phone.
@climagic that’s a cable that goes to a APC battery backup to monitor when you go on battery power!
@climagic USB cable for an APC UPS device? These use this kind of connector
Still waiting for the beautiful house, wife, etc.
@climagic ups monitoring cable?
@climagic is that an extremely low power etherkiller?
@climagic looks like the cable to connect a midi pedal to computer.
