BATTERY REPLACEMENT PROCEDURE
Replacement requires removing the battery cover plate on
the front of the UPS. No tools are needed. To replace the
Press fastener to remove the battery cover plate on
the front of the UPS (Fig. 1 & 2).

BATTERY BACK UP (Slow Alarm)
When in the UPS is in battery BACK-UP mode, the On Battery
(Yellow LED) illuminates and the UPS sounds an audible alarm.
The alarm stops when the UPS returns to normal ON LINE
LOW BATTERY (Rapid Alarm)
When the UPS is in battery BACK-UP mode and the battery energy
begins to run low, the UPS will beep rapidly until it shuts down from
a depleted battery or returns to ON LINE normal operation.
OVERLOAD (Continuous alarm)
When the UPS is overloaded (the connected loads exceed the
maximum rated capacity), the UPS emits a continuous alarm to
warn of an overload condition. Disconnect nonessential equipment.
ON/ OFF/ TEST
from the UPS to eliminate the overload.
FAULT (10 Seconds Continuously)
* REPLACE BATTERY
When the UPS occur fault, the UPS emits a 10 seconds continuous
alarm to warn of a fault condition. Disconnect the equipment from
the UPS prior to checking the equipment.
To Silence Audible Alarm
While in battery BACK-UP mode, push on/off/test button less than
1.5 seconds to silence the audible alarm. (This does not work if the
UPS is under LOW BATTERY or OVERLOAD condition.
AC Power is on
AVR is active
A_ BATTERY BACK UP SURGE PROTECTION OUTLETS
Only data sensitive equipment such as a computer, monitor
and external drive should be plugged into these outlets.
Battery power is automatically provided in case of a power
outage. Power (AC or battery) is not supplied to these outlets
when the UPS is switched off. (Do not plug surge protectors or
power strips into the battery back up outlets).
Note! During the AVR Mode, the total load that you will be
placing on the battery back up outlets should not exceed
80% of the unit's capacity.
B_ PHONE/FAX/ MODEM PROTECTION
The phone/fax/modem lines are surge protected and provide
complete safety for line connection.
C_ INTERFACE PORTS (USB & RS232)
The UPS provides both a USB and RS232 port for use with
your computer. NOTE: Choose one port only.
D_ AC INPUT BREAKER (CIRCUIT BREAKER)
The circuit breaker button will be triggered if an overload
condition forces the UPS to disconnect itself from utility power.
If the button sticks out, disconnect nonessential equipment and
E_ AC INPUT POWER CORD
F_ SITE WIRING FAULT INDICATOR
The Site Wiring Fault LED will illuminate when one of the
following conditions exist:
Open or high-resistance ground
Hot and neutral polarity reversal
Overloaded neutral circuit
G_ NETWORK PROTECTION
This connector is used for protecting the transmission line of
Ethernet card from surge, noise and spike.
H_ ACCESSORY SLOT
Optional SNMP Slot
You should have received the following:
1 – UPS unit
1 – Bulldog Plus Shutdown Software
1 – USB Cable
1 – Serial Cable
1 – Phone Line Cable
Before installation, please inspect the UPS Upon
receipt. Make sure that the UPS is not damaged.
Connect to AC Utility Power
Connect the AC inlet to utility power via the power
cord. Check whether the Site Wiring Fault indicator
is lit or not. If so, please check the utility wiring.
Charging the Battery
For best results, charge the battery for 8 hours prior to initial
use. The UPS charges its battery whenever it is connected to
the utility power.
Plug in Power Devices
Plug your devices into the AC outlets on the rear of the UPS.
To use the UPS as a master on/off switch, make sure all of
the loads are switched on.
Caution: Never connect a laser printer or
scanner to the backup outlets of UPS with
other computer equipment. A laser printer
or scanner draws significantly more power
when in use than when idle. This may
overload the UPS.
Turning on the UPS
Turn on your UPS by pressing and holding the On/Off/Test
button for approximately 2 seconds until the "ON LINE" Green
Turning off the UPS
Turn off the UPS by pressing and holding the On/Off/Test
button for more than 2 seconds until the "ON LINE" or "ON
BATTERY" LED goes off.
To Conduct a Self Test
Use the self-test to verify both the operation of the UPS and
the condition of the battery. In normal utility power, push the
On/Off/Test button less than 1.5 seconds and the UPS
performs a self-test function. During the self-test, the UPS
operates in back-up mode.
Note! During the self-test, the UPS briefly operates on-
battery backup power (the on-battery LED comes on). If
the UPS passes the self -test, it returns to on-line
operation. If the UPS fails the self-test, it immediately
returns to on-line operation and lights the replace battery
LED. The loads are not affected. Recharge the battery
overnight and perform the self- test again. If the replace
battery LED is still on, the battery will need to be
Connect the phone/ fax/ modem/ lines
Connect a single phone/ fax/ modem line into the surge-
protected sockets on the back of the UPS. The RJ-11
modular sockets accepts standard single line telephone
connections. The connection will require another length of
telephone cable, which is supplied.
Note! This connection is optional but highly suggested as
phone/ fax/modem lines often carry dangerous surges and
spikes. The UPS works properly without a phone/ fax/ modem
Caution! The phone/ fax/modem protection feature could be
rendered inoperable if improperly installed. Make sure that
the telephone line from the wall is plugged into the connector
marked "IN", and the device to be protected is plugged into
the connector marked " OUT".
Connect the Network Protection Lines
Connect the network line from the wall to the connector
marked "IN", then connect the device (Ethernet card) to be
protected to the connector marked "OUT".
* All equipment must be turned off prior to hardware
The UPS can be used without the software and can be used
with any computer using a monitor or a flat panel screen.
Also, you do not have to have the software installed to utilize
the battery backup outlets.
