  • Page 5: Overview

    1.1 Overview This equipment is a high-performance, line-interactive, uninterruptible power source (UPS) designed to provide clean, reliable, AC power to computer loads. The UPS’s line-interactive circuit topology (see figure below) offers excellent efficiency, on-line voltage regulation, and fast utility fault response. The UPS’s DC-to-AC inverter is always connected to the output and when operating on-line, part of the inverter circuitry is used “in reverse”...

    1.2 SmartBoost SmartBoost allows continuous, on-line operation during extended brown- outs or low line voltage conditions. The UPS compensates for reduced line voltage by boosting the load voltage to 12% above the input. This enhances UPS reliability because the battery is saved for complete utility failure. 1.3 Battery replacement indicators and test The UPS provides visual and audible Replace Battery indications, based on a load test of the battery.

  • Page 23: Extended Capabilities

    5.6 Extended capabilities Sections 5.6.1 through 5.6.4 briefly describe the UPS’s extended capabili- ties—advanced functions accessed using a computer running optional PowerDoctor or PowerChute plus UPS monitoring software. Refer to the monitoring software documentation for more information on these func- tions.

  • Page 24

    Output power The UPS continuously monitors the power consumed by the load. The value given is a percentage of the full load rating of the UPS. This informa- tion may be logged using UPS monitoring software, plotted using a spread- sheet application, and used to track load usage over extended periods.

    You may set the UPS’s shutdown or turn-off delay interval to 20, 180, 300, or 600 seconds. The default setting is 20 seconds. Extension of the delay is useful when the operating system shutdown routine is longer than 20 sec- onds.

  • Page 27: Ups Monitoring, Overview, Interface Kits, Powerchute Software

    6.1 Overview A UPS system alone provides excellent protection from brief power prob- lems. During an extended power outage, an unattended computer system will eventually shut down because of battery capacity exhaustion. To prevent data corruption when the UPS shuts down, the UPS must inform the computer of impending shut down so the computer can take appropriate file-saving measures.

  • Page 28: Computer Interface Port

    6.4 Computer interface port The computer interface port is diagramed below. Those with technical abilities wishing to use this port in a special application should be aware of the following limitations and capabilities of the interface. Outputs at Pins 3, 5, and 6 are open-collector outputs which must be pulled up to a common referenced supply no greater than +40 Vdc.

  • Page 35: Battery Replacement Check

    7.2 Battery replacement check The UPS automatically performs a battery test at startup and again every 14 days. This test briefly loads the batteries and can detect a weak battery before it is put into service during a power failure. If the battery is too weak to support the load during this test, the UPS instantly returns to on- line operation.
