2. Hot and neutral polarities
Replacement requires removing the battery cover plate on the back or bottom of the UPS. No tools are needed. To replace the batteries:
Remove the battery cover plate on the back of the UPS (Fig.1).
Disconnect the insulated connectors from the battery terminals (Fig.2) then put the battery wire into indentations.
Remove the battery then insert a new battery pack, and push the connectors onto the battery terminals (Fig. 3)
NOTE: There may be a small spark at the battery terminals when reconnecting the connectors. This is normal and will not harm you or the UPS.
Close the battery cover (Fig. 4).
SURGE Protected outlets (See #1 on Diagram 1)
These outlets do not provide power during a power outage.
Do not plug any surge protectors or power strips into the battery
back-up outlets (i.e. daisy chaining).
Equipment such as computer peripherals, printers, fax machine's,
or a desk lamp may be plugged into these outlets. The On/Off
button does not control these outlets.
UPS Outlets (See #2 on Diagram 1)
These outlets are your battery back up outlets. We strongly
recommend that only sensitive equipment such as your computer
and monitor should be plugged into these outlets.
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 sitting idle. This may overload the UPS.
Should a power outage occur, your battery backup would
automatically turn on Power (utility or battery) is not supplied to
these outlets when the UPS is switched off.
The On/Off button has 4 functions: (See #3 on Diagram 1)
1. Turns on the UPS. Depress button at least 2 seconds. The
green light will come on.
2. Cold start function. Assuming the battery is charged the UPS
will work without it being plugged into an outlet. Depress and
hold the key for at least 2 seconds to turn on the UPS.
3. Silence function. During "On Battery Mode", the audible sound
can be turned "ON" or "OFF" by depressing the switch less than
4. Battery test function. During "ON Line Mode", depressing the
switch less than 1.5 seconds and the UPS performs a battery
test in back up mode.
AC Input Power Cord (See #1 on Diagram 2)
Provides power to your UPS.
Audio/ Video surge protection port (see #2 on Diagram 2)
(Only F6B550-USB model)
The Audio/ Video cable is surge protected. There is one input port
and one output port.
Phone/ Fax/ Modem Surge Protection (See #3 on Diagram 2)
The Phone/ Fax/Modem lines are surge protected. There is one
input jack and two output jacks. This allows you to split one
telephone connection to two separate devices.
AC Breaker (Circuit Breaker; See #4 on Diagram 2)
Should a power overload occur, the circuit breaker would trigger
the UPS to turn off AC power. In order to restore the power,
depress the circuit breaker button to reset, then depress the
USB communication port (see #5 on Diagram 2)
Your UPS features a USB communication port. Installation of the
cable and software is optional. This allows the UPS to connect to
your computer. The Bulldog Software will not work if the UPS is
not connected to you computer. This does not mean the battery
backup feature will not work without the software and cable
installed. The UPS will still provide backup power but you will be
unable to utilize the data management capabilities of the software.
