Mounting the MBP APC by Schneider Electric recommends mounting the MBP to 3/4 inches plywood backing (36 in [914mm] high x 28 in [711mm] wide). 1. Attach the 3/4 inches plywood securely to the designated wall area. The wall should be strong enough to support the 120lb [54.5kg] MBP.
Internal cable connections For the convenience of the installer, ALL internal MBP cable connections were made prior to shipment. Check to make certain the following internal cable connections were completed: • Power Terminal Block [L1, L2, L3, N, top-to-bottom] to Input Bus [L1, L2, L3, N, top-to- bottom] •...
Making external cable connections Note: Utility cables can enter through the top or the bottom of the MBP. However, BOTTOM is recommended. External cables can enter the MBP through any of the available 1-inch [25.4mm] knockouts, or by making larger cutouts in the top or bottom plates of the enclosure. Each plate offers 22 knockouts and the ability to create up to four (4) 2-inch [50.8mm] cutouts.
UPS connections. Note: UPS cables can enter through the top or the bottom of the MBP. However, BOTTOM is recommended. Refer to the Smart-UPS VT 10-30kVA or MGE Galaxy 3500, 208V Installation Manual for MBP cable connections at the UPS. 1.
