Battery Mode Shutdown
Battery Mode Shutdown permits shutting down the UPS by turning Off the rectifier, inverter and
static switch so that there is no power to the load when the UPS is On Battery. The auxiliary power
for the UPS will still be active.
Battery Mode Shutdown can be performed locally or remotely:
• Local Battery Mode shutdown can be performed by shorting Pin3 and Pin4.
• Remote Battery Mode Shutdown can be performed using a switch connected to Pin3 and Pin4 and
mounted at remote location.
Remote Power Off will be performed by NO contact.
A current-limited source (+12VDC, 50mA) will be available from UPS.
The connection to the Liebert GXT4 for remote connection will be via terminal block connector.
Battery Mode Shutdown wiring must conform to all national, regional and local wiring codes
This signal must last for 1.5 seconds or longer.
A battery shutdown signal will not cause an immediate shutdown. It will start a 2-minute
shutdown timer. This timer cannot be stopped once triggered. If the mains power returns
during this countdown, the Liebert GXT4 will still shut down and must remain shut down for
10 seconds. Whether the UPS turns back On when the power is restored depends on the
On Battery signal is a Normally Open (NO) dry contact. When the UPS is supplying output power
from the battery this dry contact will be closed.
Low Battery signal is a Normally Open (NO) dry contact. When the UPS is supplying output power
from the battery and has reached the Low Battery Warning time selected in the configuration
program, this dry contact will be closed.
The rated values for the dry contacts for the On Battery and Low Battery signals are:
• Rated Voltage: 30V (AC or DC)
• Rated Current: 300mA
