PowerChute Business Edition -
Product Center


The following features are new to PowerChute Business Edition v10.0.1:
  • Support added for Simplified Chinese and Japanese operating systems.
  • Support dropped for 32-bit operating systems. PowerChute v10.0.1 is a 64-bit only application and cannot be installed on a 32-bit operating system.
  • Support for UPS devices with lithium-ion batteries.
  • An embedded Java Update tool in the PowerChute UI, removing the requirement to use the JRE Configuration Tool.
  • The UPSSleep REST interface allows you to shut down and reboot your UPS locally or remotely on Windows and Linux operating systems.
  • PowerChute now saves some settings to a configuration file which can be used to apply the same configuration to another copy of PowerChute on a different machine, simplifying the installation process.
  • A ZIP archive tool that exports the necessary PowerChute configuration files required for troubleshooting, which can be sent to Technical Support to help resolve customer issues.
  • Java 11 is bundled with PowerChute v10.0.1.

The Operating System, Processor, JRE and Browser Compatibility Chart document has information on supported systems.
