GENERAL SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS Warnings in this manual appear in two different ways: Danger warnings - The danger warning symbol is an exclamation mark enclosed in a triangle that precedes the large bold letters spelling the word "DANGER". The Danger warning symbol is used to indicate situations, locations, and conditions that exist and can cause serious injury or death: DANGER...
The maximum ambient temperature in which this UPS unit should be operated or stored is 104 °F (40 °C). The batteries for the Toshiba 1700 Series 1.5 and 2.4kVA UPS are housed in a self-contained battery module. This module should not be opened under any circumstances.

L’élimination des batteries est ATTENTION réglementée.
Inspection/Installation Inspection of the New UPS Equipment Upon receipt of the UPS, a careful inspection for shipping damage should be made. After Unpacking: 1) Check the unit for loose, broken, bent or otherwise damaged parts. If damage has occurred during shipment, keep all original packing materials for return to shipping agent.
Battery Module Figure 2 Battery Module Layout UPS Connections Standard Module Connections The illustration on the following page shows the proper assembly of the two modules that make up the standard unit. If additional battery modules are being installed with the standard unit see page 20. For all other option modules see page 21.
Standard Module Connections (cont’d) If two modules are to be stacked on top of each other, they should be interlocked to reduce the chances of the top module being knocked over. Modules do not have to be stacked for the system to operate.
Operating the UPS Display Panel Layout Function Control Button Starting the UPS System Once the modules have been connected as shown in the preceding section (UPS Connections, page 10) the UPS system is ready to be started. There are two ways to start the system: from AC input power (if present) or from batteries.
Starting on DC Power If no AC power source is available, or if the AC input power is outside of the allowable range for voltage or frequency, the UPS can be started from battery power. The length of UPS operation time on battery power depends on the number of attached battery modules and the amount of load the UPS is supporting.
Load Shed Function The 1700 Series includes a load shed function. During battery backup operation, this function allows the load connected to two of the receptacles (figure 1, page 9) to be turned off in an effort to conserve power for more critical loads.
Fan Speed The 1700 Series UPS has variable speed fans. The fan speed will vary depending on a number of factors. As the load placed on the UPS increases the fan speed will increase. The temperature of the environment the UPS is operating in can also cause the fan speed to increase.
unit is in programming mode. (If at anytime while the UPS is in the programming mode there is one minute of inactivity the UPS will automatically exit the programming mode and return to bypass operation.) What follows is a step by step guide to navigating in the programming mode, followed by a detailed description of each option.
Function Control button successive times will increase the load shed level in 20% increments. A.2 Once the option is set to the desired level, press and hold the Function Control button. This will save the new load shed level setting. The UPS will indicate that the value has been stored by blinking the LEDs.
Fixed Frequency Mode The 1700 Series UPS has the option of operating in a fixed frequency mode. Normally the UPS operates in the frequency auto- detect mode. If a specific output frequency is required (i.e. 50Hz or 60Hz) the UPS can be set at the factory to supply the desired frequency regardless of the input frequency (input frequency must be within allowable limits, see Specifications on page 31).
Other Option Modules There are a number of other optional modules that can be ordered for the 1700 Series UPS system. Table 3 shows some of the available option modules. For information about options not listed here contact Toshiba’s UPS Marketing Department at (800) 231- 1412 or by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Communication Interface Dry Contacts The remote contacts interface is a standard feature. It is provided through solid state relays with contacts through a DB9 male connector located on the back of the UPS (refer to the Communication Option User Manual for a more detailed description of this option).
• If an optional RemotEye™ SNMP interface card is installed in the UPS only one method (SNMP or RS-232C) will function at a time. • For a description of the cable required to connect to a Toshiba UPS system refer to the Communication Option User Manual or contact Toshiba’s UPS Marketing Department at (800) 231-1412 or...
In many cases, after the condition that caused the fault is corrected the unit will automatically transfer back to normal mode. For those cases where the unit does not transfer back automatically contact your Toshiba UPS service representative at 1- 877-867-8773 (outside the U.S. call 713-466-0277).
It is illegal to dump lead-acid batteries in landfills or dispose of improperly. Please help our Earth by contacting the environmental protection agencies in your area, the battery manufacturer, or call Toshiba toll-free at (800) 231-1412 for more information about recycling.
Preventive and Scheduled Maintenance/Parts Replacement Preventive Maintenance Toshiba's 1700 Series of UPS systems have been designed to provide years of trouble-free operation requiring a minimum of preventive maintenance. The best preventive measure is to keep the area around the unit, particularly the air inlet vents, clean and free of moisture and dust accumulations.

Appendix B: Fan Speed Control The fans in the 1700 Series will operate at any of four different speeds depending on the environment and system conditions. In the first stage the fans are off. As the load and or the temperature increase the fans will subsequently go to low, medium or high speed as required.
1 minute, and 150% for 30 seconds. If the overload continues the unit will switch to bypass mode. When in bypass mode the 1700 Series overload capacity is limited by the input breaker. The following graph shows the response of the breaker depending on the applied load.
Appendix D: Parallel Operation The 1700 Series UPS offers a standard feature that allows the unit to operate with very low input voltage without de-rating the output power. If the input voltage drops below a certain point the unit will switch to parallel mode.
Appendix E: Bypass Undervoltage / Overvoltage When the 1700 Series UPS is in bypass mode the undervoltage and overvoltage limits are restricted to +/-10% of the rated input voltage. If the input voltage is outside of this voltage window the UPS output will be turned off.
