    Safety General Safety Instructions Read these operating instructions carefully prior commissioning of the PROTECT A. UPS and observe the safety instructions! Only use the unit if it is in a technically perfect condition and always in accordance with its intended purpose, while being aware of safety and danger aspects, and in accordance with the operating instructions! Immediately eliminate any faults that could be detrimental to safety.
  • Page 11 The output may be live, even if the UPS is not connected to the mains supply, as the UPS has its own internal power supply (battery)! For health and safety reasons, the unit must be earthed correctly! PROTECT A. may only be operated with or connected to a 220 / 230 / 240 VAC mains with protective grounding using a mains connection cable with PE conductor (included in the delivery) that has been tested in accordance with German...
  • Page 12 ♦ Condensation may occur if the UPS is brought from a cold environment into the room where it is to be installed. The UPS must be absolutely dry prior to start- up. As a result, leave it to acclimatise for at least two hours.
  • Page 13 When replacing the batteries, the following must be observed: Only ever use identical, maintenance-free sealed lead batteries with the same data as the original batteries. Danger! Explosive! Never throw batteries into open fire. Never open or damage batteries. (Electrolyte may leak out and damage skin and eyes.

  • Page 21: Charging

    Charging The PROTECT A. is supplied with its battery fully charged. Nevertheless, energy may have been lost during transport, so the battery should be fully recharged before it is used for the first time. Connect the input of the UPS (no. 2 in the figure in chapter 4.3 on page 19) to the mains connection cable provided and plug the mains connector into a suitable shockproof socket.
