For example, during a power outage, you can keep key pieces of equipment running while you turn off other equipment. This feature allows you to save battery power. Each Dell Online Rack model has two configurable load segments. See “UPS Rear Panels” on page 15 for the load segment locations.
Configuring Automatic Start Delay You can configure a load segment to turn on automatically after the utility power returns, if it was shut down by: S The button S An external command with auto-restart option S Battery under voltage state S Automatic on battery shutdown command You can specify the restart delay time for each load segment: select zero seconds (0s is the default) to restart immediately, select 1–32767 seconds to delay for the specified time, or select Off.
Configuring Automatic on Battery Shutdown If set to Off (default), the load segment turns off only when commanded manually by the an external command, or through the display (Control > Load Segments). If set to zero seconds (0s), the load segment turns off automatically when the UPS on Battery state activates.
Configuring Battery Settings Configure the UPS settings for an installed EBM, including whether to run automatic battery tests and automatic restart configuration. Configuring the UPS for an EBM If the UPS is not configured for the EBM, the UPS reports less battery time remaining on the UPS front panel and to any remote software.
Running Automatic Battery Tests The automatic discharge test, enabled by default, runs during the transition from Float to Rest mode. After the test completes, the charge cycle restarts to completely charge the batteries and then continues to Rest mode normally. The automatic test runs approximately once every three months and does not run again until after three more Float to Rest mode transitions.
