Hello Ruud,
thank you for your KB-Post.

Update: We have now published a device template for Advanced metrics on APC equipment that implements the POWERNET-MIB. This includes temperature readings from the uioSensorStatusTable and iemStatusProbesTable (if available). You can get it here:

APC's devices usually support SNMP. You'll have to check APC's documentation for the OID's and or MIB Files. For instance:

I've reviewed two "similar" cases recently, the information should be available in one of the following tables:

NameBase OID

The Table sensor will be deploy-able on either of the OID's, the values can be formatted/adjusted (division) in the channel settings after the sensor's deployment. I advise following this guide:

Once you've obtained this information, you can use one of the Custom Sensor variants:

Alternatively, if you obtain/locate a MIB file, please check this guide:
