Battery BACKUP (Slow Alarm)
When in the UPS is in battery backup mode, the On
Battery (Yellow LED) illuminates and the UPS sounds
an audible alarm every 10 seconds. The alarm stops
when the UPS returns to normal ONLINE operation.
Low Battery (Rapid Alarm)
When the UPS is in battery backup mode and the
battery energy begins to run low, the UPS will beep
every 1 second until it shuts down from a depleted
battery or returns to ONLINE normal operation.
BELKIN SUPERIOR SERIES UPS
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 from the UPS to eliminate the overload.
The Internet/phone/fax/DSL/network lines are surge-
protected and provide complete safety for line connection.

The UPS provides both a USB and RS232
port for you use with your computer.

and external drive should be plugged into these outlets.

AC INPUT BREAKER (CIRCUIT BREAKER)
The 10-amp resettable circuit breaker button will be triggered
if an overload condition forces the UPS to disconnect
itself from utility power. If the black button sticks out,
disconnect nonessential equipment and depress breaker.
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.
To fully utilize the UPS and its software, your computer
must be able to operate the following operating systems:
95, 98, 98SE, ME, NT
and higher and have a serial or USB port.
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.
Charging the Battery
For best results, charge the battery for 6 hours prior to initial
use. The UPS charges its battery whenever it is connected
to the utility power. Should you see the yellow check battery
light come on, the battery may need immediate replacement.
4, 2000, XP, or
Plug-In Power Devices
Plug your devices into the AC outlets on the top 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 the 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
The UPS will perform a self-test each time the
UPS is switched on that determines whether the
battery can support the connected loads.
Note! The UPS maintains the battery charge when
in the off position and will respond to commands
received through the computer interface port.
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, recycle the power switch On/Off. During the
self-test, the UPS operates in backup mode.
Note! During the self-test, the UPS brieﬂy operates
on-battery backup power (the green Power LED
comes on and the unit emits a beep every 10 seconds).
If the UPS passes the self-test, it returns to online
operation. If the UPS fails the self-test, it immediately
returns to online operation. See details regarding the
Check Battery Indicator below in the next section.
Check Battery Indicator
This indicator is lighted when the unit has detected
a weak or worn-out battery during the self-
test. Please follow the procedure below to bring
the battery up to normal operating levels:
1. Allow unit to charge for at least 12 hours
2. Re-test the battery by recycling the power switch
off/on. The unit will run a 2-second self-test again
to determine the strength of the battery.
3. If the Check Battery Indicated is lighted again,
contact Belkin to replace the battery.
To Silence Audible Alarm
While in battery backup mode, push On/Off/Test
button less than 2 seconds to silence the audible
alarm. (This does not work if the UPS is under
LOW BATTERY or OVERLOAD condition.)
All equipment must be turned off prior
to hardware installation.
Connect a single Internet, phone or fax line into the surge-
protected ports on the back of the UPS. This comes with a
built-in line splitter to provide you with 2 output lines. The
RJ11 modular sockets accept standard, single-line telephone
connections. The connection will require another length of
telephone cable, which is included FREE with your purchase.
Phone-Line Connection with Built-In Splitter:
Note! This connection is optional but highly suggested
as Internet, phone, fax lines often carry dangerous surges
and spikes and need to be protected. The UPS will still
work properly without a phone/fax/modem connection.
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".
Serial or USB Communication Port (Installation Optional)
To fully utilize the Shutdown Software; you will
need to connect the UPS to your computer so
they can communicate to each other.
The communication port will provide the following features:
1. Monitoring charger status
2. Monitoring UPS status
3. Monitoring battery status and condition
4. Monitoring the utility status
5. Use the ON/OFF/TEST UPS power switch
function to schedule UPS for power saving
You may connect the UPS to your computer by choosing
either the serial or USB ports with the selector.
Note: Choose one port only. Do not connect
your computer through both ports.
