Keep your replies on the topic of helping RolfJ, please. If you want to continue this argument, and that's what it is, take it to a more appropriate forum like Serious Discussion or Geek Talk. Your debate here is not helping the OP.

That's why we are waiting for RolfJ to return. For everyone's benefit, answers to the following would help put this back on track.

How old are these UPS devices? How old are the batteries?
Are these "smart UPS"? Are they connected to a host computer via a communications cable? If so, how is the associated software configured to shut down the computers?
Did these UPS ever work correctly, or as expected?
Can you give us a couple examples of specific UPS and the hardware connected to them?
With a decent load on the UPS (a 150W light bulb, for example), what happens when you pull the plug?
