General Information Technology PROTECT C. Uninterruptible Power Supply (UPS) for essential loads such as PCs, workstations, servers, network components, telecommunication equipment similar devices. It consists of: ♦ Mains filter with overvoltage protection (appliance protection / class D) and mains energy backfeed protection ♦...
View of the PROTECT C. components System Description The UPS is connected between the public utility's mains and the loads to be protected. The power section of the rectifier converts the mains voltage to DC voltage for supplying the inverter. The circuit technology used (PFC)
voltage system on the protected busbar is of the highest quality and availability. In the event of mains faults (e.g. current failures), the voltage continues to be supplied from the inverter to the load without any interruption. From this point onwards, the inverter draws its power from the battery instead of the inverter.

Electrical Start-Up Verify that UPS voltage of your country corresponds to your equipment voltage. The default setting is set to 230 V. Output voltage on the UPS system can be adjusted with the software “CompuWatch” in steps of 220 Vac, 230 Vac and 240 Vac. Turn on the PROTECT C.
Please shut down the entire system if you cannot solve any problems which occur. Press the OFF button for about 2 seconds. Disconnect the UPS from the mains by pressing the mains input circuit breaker (Pos 3, page 26). Please contact our hotline (page 5).
Operating The following operation modes are possible: Operation with existing mains (6.1.1) Operation with faulty mains (6.1.2) Operation with faulty inverter (6.1.3) Manual bypass (6.1.4) 6.1.1 Normal Operation Once you have connected the UPS to a suitable mains connection, you can start operation using the UPS main switch.
6.1.2 Battery Operation / Autonomy Operation The mains is not within the required tolerance range or has failed. In this case power is supplied to the inverter from the charged battery without interruption. The power supply to the loads is therefore also ensured in the event of a mains failure. This drains the capacity of the battery and it is discharged.
The LED bargraph (LED chain on the left hand side of the ON / OFF button) show during operation the actual utilization of the UPS (chapter 8.1.1, page 45 ff). 6.1.3 Bypass Operation If the inverter is overloaded or if overtemperature is detected, e.g.
As a result, the electronics continuously attempt to switch back to "online" / normal operating status (e.g. when the overload or overtemperature no longer applies). The bypass is a mechanical link that switches extremely rapidly. It is located between the load and the mains. The associated synchronisation unit in the bypass ensures that the frequency and phase of the inverter voltage is synchronised with the mains.
depending on the level of the overload. However, the connected load must be reduced without delay. Non-observance of the "Unit overload" condition may cause the total loss of all UPS functions! Also avoid short-term unit overloads, which may, for example, occur when connecting a laser printer or laser fax machine.
The communication protocol is optimized for operation with the shutdown and UPS management software “CompuWatch” from AEG. To connect the UPS to your computer use the provided RS232 communication cable by attaching them to a free port of your pc.
In conjunction with the "intelligent" UPS, this ensures that the availability of IT components and data security is guaranteed. The "CompuWatch" shutdown software supports different operating systems: Windows 98SE/ME, Windows NT/2000/XP, Linux SUSE, Linux RedHat, Novell Netware, IBM AIX, HP-UX, SUN Solaris, Mac OS, and others. Refer to the manual on the CD for details about installing the software on the various operating systems.

Parallel operation Functionality PROTECT C. 6000 (S) and C. 10000 (S) was developed for the parallel operation in n+x technology (”n“ stands for the number of necessary appliances for load supply, “x“ stands for the redundancy level). Up to three appliances of the same type can be connected in parallel to raise the output power and/or to receive a higher availability.
HU as well as input and output control panel can also be ordered via AEG Power Supply System and their partners. Setup / connection of the parallel operation field The mains connection of each UPS is realised analogue to the description in chapter 5.
The activation process is not complicated and no knowledge is required. Just follow the instructions in chapter 6. Should you have ordered the parallel operation panel from AEG Power Supply Systems follow the instructions of the separate operation manual. The display of the UPS operates analogue to the description of a single unit in chapter 8.
position „bypass” i.e. that the mains supplies the loads bus-bar. Connect the separator of the output of each UPS, i.e. connect every output of a UPS with the parallel operation bus-bar. Put in the prefuse of the low voltage main distribution field (there, where the UPS systems are connected on the input side with the mains), resp.
Now switch on the inverters of each UPS. To do this, press and hold the UPS ON switch one by one for about 2 seconds. When being powered on, the UPS will perform self-diagnosis, the Load/Battery level LEDs will be turned on and then off one after another in ascending order.
bypass for the loads is done, i.e. activation of the manual bypass operation, suspension of the supply for the load by the UPS bus-bar. The clearance of the voltage of each UPS is realised in the low voltage distribution. Now the expansion resp. the reduction of the parallel compound can be executed now.
Maintenance The PROTECT C. consists of advanced and resistant components. To guarantee a continuous and high availability it is recommended to check the unit (especially the batteries and the fans) in regular intervals (at least every 6 months). CAUTION: Before going through the next step disconnect the PROTECT C.
♦ there is any mechanical damage or foreign bodies can be found in the system, ♦ any conductive dirt or dust has accumulated in the unit, ♦ accumulation of dust affects heat supply and dissipation. CAUTION: PROTECT C. must be disconnected from the power supply prior to carrying out the following work.
Storage, Dismantling and Disposal 11.1 Storage Long storage times without charging discharging the battery at regular intervals may lead to permanent damage of the battery. If the battery is stored at room temperature (20° C to 30° C) it will automatically discharge at a rate of 3 - 6% per month due to internal reactions.
