  • Page 7: Component Identification

    Component identification 3 Phase UPS overview The HP 3 Phase UPS protects your sensitive electronic equipment from the most common power problems including power failures, power sags, power surges, brownouts, and line noise. Power outages can occur when you least expect it and power quality can be erratic. These power problems have the potential to corrupt critical data, destroy unsaved work sessions, and damage hardware - causing hours of lost productivity and expensive repairs.

HP recommends using non-polar (relay) control input. The pins must be shorted with maximum resistance of 10 ohm in order to activate the specific input.

  • Page 78: Mode Transfers

    Mode transfers • If one UPS in a parallel system transfers from High Efficiency mode (on page 65) to Normal mode (on page 65), the other UPSs transfer also. • If one UPS transfers to Battery mode (on page 66), the remaining UPSs in the parallel system stay online. The transferred UPS might transfer back to online at any time, and the parallel system resynchronizes.

  • Page 79: Metering

    Metering The Output and Load Receptacle meter readings differ between a parallel system and a standalone UPS. In a parallel system, one UPS reads the Load Receptacle value for the total system (the others read zero), but each UPS displays its own Output value. For example, in a two-unit parallel system with one Anderson load connection for 12 kVA, the Load Receptacle current would read 12 kVA on one UPS and zero on the other UPS, but the Output measurement would be 6 kVA on each UPS (half the total).
