Here's some further information:  I can see the external sensor when doing a 
snmpwalk on the UPS' own external NIC (on the AP9619 card).

The command I use is:

snmpwalk -M /root/MIBs:/usr/share/snmp/mibs -m ALL -v1 -c public <UPS IP 
address> iso.org.dod.internet.private.enterprises.apc

where /root/MIBs contains the powernet MIB (v3.8.5) available from:

I've copied part of the snmp tree below:

PowerNet-MIB::iemStatusProbesNumProbes.0 = INTEGER: 1
PowerNet-MIB::iemStatusProbeNumber.1 = INTEGER: 1
PowerNet-MIB::iemStatusProbeName.1 = STRING: "Integrated"
PowerNet-MIB::iemStatusProbeStatus.1 = INTEGER: connected(2)
PowerNet-MIB::iemStatusProbeCurrentTemp.1 = INTEGER: 28
PowerNet-MIB::iemStatusProbeTempUnits.1 = INTEGER: celsius(1)
PowerNet-MIB::iemStatusProbeCurrentHumid.1 = INTEGER: -1
PowerNet-MIB::iemStatusProbeHighTempViolation.1 = INTEGER: disabled(3)
PowerNet-MIB::iemStatusProbeLowTempViolation.1 = INTEGER: disabled(3)
PowerNet-MIB::iemStatusProbeHighHumidViolation.1 = INTEGER: disabled(3)
PowerNet-MIB::iemStatusProbeLowHumidViolation.1 = INTEGER: disabled(3)

If it helps any, the exact UPS model string is "Smart-UPS RT 8000 XL" and it 
has a firmware revision "477.15.W".
