Uninterruptible Power Supply (UPS) PROTECT C.1000, PROTECT C.2000 or PROTECT C.3000 as well as the associated external battery units PROTECT C.1000 BP or PROTECT C.2030 BP – all referred to as PROTECT C in this document – safely and properly, and for its intended purpose.
2. GENERAL INFORMATION TECHNOLOGY PROTECT C is an Uninterruptible Power Supply (UPS) for essential loads such as PCs, workstations, servers, network components, telecommunication equipment and similar devices. It consists of: Mains filter with surge voltage protection (device protection/ class D) and mains energy backfeed protection ...
SYSTEM DESCRIPTION The UPS is connected to a shockproof socket between the public utility’s mains and the loads to be protected. The power section of the rectifier converts the mains voltage to DC voltage for supplying the inverter. The circuit technology used (PFC) enables sinusoidal current consumption and therefore operation with little system disturbance.
The automatic bypass serves to increase the reliability of the supply further. It switches the public mains directly through to the load if there is an inverter malfunction. As a result, the automatic bypass represents an extra passive redundancy for the load. The graphical LC display used provides for versatile use and easy operation.

3. SAFETY GENERAL SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS Read these operating instructions prior to start-up of the PROTECT C UPS and its external battery modules (special accessories), and observe the safety instructions. Only use the unit if it is in a technically perfect condition and always in accordance with its intended purpose, while being aware of safety and danger aspects, and in accordance with the operating instructions! Immediately eliminate any faults that could be detrimental to safety.
SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS FOR PROTECT C This chapter contains important instructions for the PROTECT C UPS and its external battery modules (special accessories). These must be followed during assembly, operation and maintenance of the uninterruptible power supply and the battery systems (internal and, if appropriate, external as well).
Observe the following safety instructions to ensure permanent operational safety of and safe work with the UPS and the battery modules (special accessories): Do not dismantle the UPS! (The UPS does not contain any parts that require regular maintenance. Bear in mind that the warranty will be invalidated if the unit is opened!) ...
Only authorised persons are allowed in the vicinity of the batteries! When replacing the batteries, the following must be observed: Only ever use identical maintenance-free sealed lead batteries with the same data as the original batteries. Only authorised persons are allowed in the vicinity of the batteries! When replacing the batteries, the following must be observed: Only ever use identical maintenance-free sealed lead batteries with the same data as the original batteries.
Please keep the plastic packaging bags away from babies and children in order to safeguard against suffocation accidents. Handle the components with care. Please take into account the weight. It may be necessary to engage the help of a second person, particularly in the case of the 2 and 3 kVA models and if there are external battery units.
Mains connection (UPS input) Mains input circuit breaker Monitored fan(s) with intelligent speed control (Attention: At least 100mm of free space is required behind the fan for free ventilation!) Communication interface RS232 (9-pin SUB-D socket) USB communication port Emergency Power Off, optionally to be configured as opener or closer Communication slot for optional expansion cards: relay card, remote ON/OFF, SNMP, …...
6. COMMISSIONING MECHANICAL SET-UP Note the following points when setting up the UPS system and its external battery units (special accessories): The contact surface must be smooth and level. It must also be sufficiently strong and sturdy to avoid vibration and shock loads. ...
Protect C.2000 with Protect C.2030 BP Protect C.3000 with Protect C.2030 BP Protect C with 1 battery extension Fig.: Protect C.1000 and Protect C.1000 BP Check the correct fit of the UPS and the battery unit (the casings e.g. have to have the same dimension).
Protect C with 2 battery extensions Fig.: Protect C.1000 und Protect C.1000 BP Check the correct fit of the UPS and the battery unit (the casings e.g. have to have the same dimension). Now connect the corresponding battery connectors using the supplied battery connection cables as shown in the figure above.
To ensure correct operation of the UPS and its ancillary equipment, it is necessary to equip the power cord with an appropriate fuse. For all models in the Protect C series connection is made via the supplied mains lead to a standard electrical outlet. Utilize a sufficient fuse rating in your sub-distribution.
Never connect additional loads to the UPS or switch on during a power failure, e.g. if the UPS is operating in emergency mode! As a rule, if there has never been an overload during normal operation, Battery mode operation will also not have suffered an overload. A flash of the LED fault in connection with a beep indicates a deactivating fault.
The UPS will be immediately supplied with power from the public power network. It will start up with an initialization phase, indicated by the AEG logo, which appears on the screen for 5 seconds. After that, you will see the following message: UPS On Now confirm the highlighted “UPS On”...

MAINTENANCE The PROTECT C consists of advanced and resistant components. To guarantee a continuous and high availability it is recommended to check the unit (especially the batteries and the fans) in regular intervals (at least every 6 months). Caution! Follow safety and security regulations unconditionally! 10.1 BATTERY CHARGING The battery is automatically charged when the mains is present, irrespective of the operating mode.
If large quantities of dust have accumulated, the unit should, as a precaution, be cleaned with dry compressed air, in order to ensure adequate heat dissipation. The intervals at which visual checks should be performed are largely determined by the site conditions. 10.2.2 CHECKING THE BATTERY Progressive ageing of the battery system can be detected by regular capacity checks.
Note If the UPS will be operated with additional external battery packs we recommend from technical point of view to replace all battery systems at the same time. Replace the EBM battery system same as the UPS replacement, ensure a proper connection..
