2. General Information
2.1 Technology
Protect D. is an uninterruptible power supply (UPS) for rack mounted loads such as
PCs, workstations, servers, network components and similar devices, consisting of:
• Network filter with surge protection (device protection / Class D) and mains
back-feed protection
• Rectifier with PFC-logic (power factor correction unit)
• Separate input possibilities for rectifier and bypass (DUAL or SINGLE input)
• Separate intelligent battery charger with switch mode power supply technology
• Sealed system battery with maintenance-free design for energy storage in rack
technology with downstream DC / DC converter unit
• 3-level IGBT inverter for continuous supply to the connected loads with
sinusoidal AC voltage
• Automatic, electronic bypass(SBS) as an additional passive redundancy
SBS = Static Bypass Switch
• Removable terminal unit with outlets to IE60320, fitted with an automatic
locking mechanism
• Manual bypass for maintenance and service purposes (with automatic static
bypass activation, when operated)
• Parallel operation for the purpose of preparation of active redundancy or
to increase power
• Control unit based on digital signal processor technology
• Multi-lingual LCD display designed to display remaining time and logs in
real time

Fig. 1: Component diagram
2.2 System description
The UPS is connected between the public network and the power load segment
to be protected.
The rectifier is powered from the mains and converts the AC voltage into a
stabilized DC voltage to feed the inverter. The circuitry technology used (PFC),
enables sinusoidal current consumption, thus allowing a low circuit feedback
operation. A separate, second rectifier (charger) based on switching power supply
technology, recharges or maintains the charge of the battery in the intermediate
circuit. Due to the special circuitry technology used in this charger / rectifier, the
harmonics of the charging current are reduced significantly. Additionally, a sleep
mode considerably increases the service life of the battery. The inverter converts
the DC voltage into a sinusoidal AC voltage. In combination with digital signal
processor technology and extremely high pulse rate IGBT-power semiconductors
in the inverter, a microprocessor-controlled regulator on the basis of pulse-width
modulation (PWM) guarantees a voltage system of the highest quality and
availability on the secured busbar.
10
In the event of mains problems (e.g. power outages), power is supplied to the
load segment without an interruption from the inverter, which now uses the
battery. Since no switching is required, the load segment experiences no power
supply interruption at all.
The automatic bypass provides increased power supply security for single
installations in particular by switching the public network, e.g. in the event of
an inverter malfunction, through to the load segment directly and without
interruption. In other words, the automatic bypass provides the load segment
with an additional passive redundancy.
An integrated, manual bypass unit for maintenance and / or servicing provides an
uninterrupted supply of power to the consumers. The connection unit is designed
so that it can be separated from the UPS circuitry with minimal effort and can thus
remain in the rack. Through this simplified line-side activation, servicing of the unit
is possible at all times.
In order to ensure maximum security to the supply of the connected loads,
the equipment was also prepared for parallel operation: a second UPS system
provides maximum availability when used as an active redundancy. If, however,
the demand for power is in the foreground, then the second UPS can be used
for performance enhancing parallel operation.
The graphical LCD display used provides for versatile use and easy operation.
Convenient features such as switchable outputs, a freely programmable,
potential-free change-over contact, as well as an emergency power-off contact,
round out the standard interface selection (USB, RS232 and communication slot).

its external battery modules (special accessories) for the first time; pay careful
attention to the safety precautions!
Use this device for its intended purpose only and in accordance with the safety
instructions and danger warnings in this instruction manual! The device is to be
used only when it is in perfect working condition; correct any problems that may
affect the safety of the device immediately.
The following pictograms appear in this manual:
Note: Danger!
In the case of danger to life and limb of the operator.
Note: Attention!
Risk of injury and / or risk of damage to equipment and equipment parts.
Note: Information!
Useful and important for the operation of the UPS and the external battery
modules (optional).
3.2 Safety instructions for the Protect D.
This chapter contains important safety instructions for the UPS Protect D. and
its external battery modules (optional accessories) that must be followed for the
mounting, operation and maintenance of the uninterruptible power supply and
the battery system (internal and external batteries, if applicable).
17
The UPS is an electrical device that can be dangerous. The device should only
be opened by qualified personnel. Repairs should only be carried out by
qualified service personnel!
The output can also be electrically charged, even if the UPS is not connected to
the mains power supply. The UPS has its own internal power supply (battery)!
To ensure operator safety, the device must be properly grounded!
The Protect D. must only be connected and operated with a VDE-approved
power cord with a grounding conductor to 200 V / 208 V / 220 V / 230 V / 240 V AC
voltage networks with a protective ground.
Caution – Risk of burns!
The battery has a high short-circuit current. Connection or disconnection errors
can lead to the melting of plug connections, to arcing and to severe burns!
The device is equipped with a warning signal that sounds when the Protect D.
battery is discharged or when the UPS is not working in the normal mode (see
also chapter 9.1.1 “Alarm- / error messages”, from page 61).
To ensure the safe operation and reliability of the UPS and battery modules
(optional), observe the following safety instructions:
• Do not attempt to open the UPS! (The UPS does not contain any parts that
require regular maintenance. Please note that if the UPS has been opened,
any warranty claims with be voided)
• Do not expose the device to direct sunlight or a direct heat source!
• The unit is designed for installation in temperature controlled indoor rooms.
Do not install the device close to water or in very humid areas!
• If the UPS is brought from a cold environment into the installation area,
condensation may occur. Before using the UPS, it must be absolutely dry;
therefore a waiting time of a minimum of two hours before use is required.
• Never connect the mains power input with the UPS output!
18
• Ensure that no liquids or foreign objects enter the housing!
• Do not block the ventilation openings of the device! Make sure, for example,
that children do not insert anything into the ventilation openings!
• Never connect any household appliances, e.g. a hair dryer, to the UPS!
Also be careful when operating the device with power loads. Any feedback to
the inverter, e.g. due to a short-term generator operation of the load, must be
avoided at all costs.
• The power outlet should be located near the unit and with easy access in order
to make it easier to deactivate the AC input or pull out the plug!!
• While the device is in operation, do not pull the plug from the UPS or from
the network power supply outlet (grounded power outlet). This will cancel the
ground for the UPS and all of the load segments connected.
Danger of electric shock!
Even when the mains power supply has been disconnected, parts inside the
UPS are still connected to the battery and can give you an electric shock. Before
attempting any maintenance or service work, always disconnect the battery circuit!
Battery replacement and servicing must be done or at least supervised by a
qualified technician, who is familiar with the batteries and the safety precautions
that have to be taken!
Do not allow unauthorized access to the batteries!
When replacing the batteries, please note: Use only identical, maintenance-free,
valve regulated lead acid batteries with exactly the same specification as the
original batteries. Ask your AEG dealer for the appropriate battery tray.
Danger of explosion!
Do not dispose of batteries in an open fire.
Do not attempt to open or interfere with the batteries (the electrolytes released
will harm skin and eyes and can also be toxic!)
Batteries can cause electrical shock and high short circuit current.
19
Whenever you work with batteries, please take the following precautions:
• Remove all watches, rings and any other metallic jewelry!
• Use only tools with insulated handles!
Do not use connecting blocks with central on / off switches to prevent switch-on
current peaks.
Switch the UPS to “OFF” if you don’t want to use it for a longer period of time.
If your company switches off the power, then the Protect D. has to be switched
off as well. Otherwise, the battery will run down. To prolong battery life, avoid
running the battery down frequently!
For your own protection, never switch on the UPS when the plug has been pulled
from the Protect D.!

4.2 Installation
The Protect D. is designed to be installed in a protected environment. When
choosing the location, make sure that there is adequate ventilation and any other
environmental requirements deemed appropriate.
The Protect D. is air-cooled. Do not block vents or openings!
The UPS and its battery modules in particular, should preferably be operated at
room temperature (between 15°C and 25°C).
Install the devices in a room that is dry, relatively dust-free and free of chemical
vapors.
Make sure that no magnetic storage media are stored and / or operated in the
vicinity of the Protect D.
Check the type rating plate to make sure that the voltage and frequency
specifications match those of your load segments.
4.3 Assembly
For rack installation of the UPS system and its external battery units (Optional
accessories), please note the following:
• To prevent damage from vibration and shocks, the installation location has
to have adequate stability.
• Make sure that racks are able to support the installation.
• Place any external battery units directly underneath the UPS system.
To ensure maximum mechanical stability, place each tray in its own rack mount.
• Due to their heavy weight, install the units in the lower part of the cabinet.
• Install the units allowing for adequate air circulation.
• External battery packs are to be placed directly below the UPS system.
To maintain maximum mechanical stability, mount each tray on a pair of
separate rack rails.
• Avoid extremes of temperature! In order to maximize battery life, an
environmental temperature of 15°C to 25°C is recommended. Do not expose
the units to direct sunlight or operate them close to any other heat sources,
e.g. radiators.
24
• Protect the units from external environmental influences (particularly moisture
and dust). Please pay special attention to the information in chapter 3, starting
on page 16 of this manual.
• If the device is taken from a cold room and brought into a warm room or if the
room temperature suddenly drops, condensation may occur within the device.
To prevent any condensation buildup, let the device acclimatize for 2 hours
before you switch it on.
Installation in a 19" rack
Mount the trays in the lower third of the rack, taking into account the center
of gravity of the rack and making sure that there is adequate fresh air supply.
Universal mounting rail systems are included. The amount of space required for
the 6 kVA UPS is 3U and 5U for the 10 kVA. External battery extension units each
require, directly under the UPS, a further 3U.
1.Firstly install the depth variable enclosed rack rails. Tighten the mounting screws
on the left and right rails, leaving the rail loosely fastened. Roughly adjust the
depth of the rail in the installation location in the rack.
2.Locate the rack mounting positions appropriately and use each two cage nuts
on each spar corresponding to the position of the rack rails. Each rack rail
requires 4 cage nuts. Ensure that there is sufficient space below each UPS for
further addition of battery extension units allowing for a height of 3U. Now

6. Electrical connection
Warning
Before beginning work, please ensure that cables are disconnected and that
power is turned off.
In order to simplify assembly and to avoid deformation of the connector unit,
secure in and output cables only with separate connection units. Use only highly
flexible fine-stranded cables. Connect the connector firstly to the UPS.
High touch voltages can occur with freely accessible metal parts. Protective
measures against earthing can be made through the grounding of the Protect D.
via the designated (n) grounding screw(s) (
/ PE). Prior to commissioning, please
ensure that Protect D. and it optional battery tray contents are compliant with
regulations, e.g. VDE0100 is earthed. To do this, connect the terminals “
/ PE”
(Earth) to the grounding point of the cabinet frame.
Before beginning connection work, ensure that:
• The values of the mains voltage (supply) and frequency match those on the label
of the UPS,
• The ground connection prescribed by IEC standards or regulations is consistent
with local standards and regulations,
• The UPS is connected to the mains supply via a separate connection with the
cable secured for low voltage distribution,
• Fuses or circuit breakers are used to match the values specified in chapter 6.2
• The connecting line from the fuse to the UPS with a minimum cross section
according to chapter 6.2 “Connection cross section and fuses”
32
6.1 Safety of personnel
When fitting the connecting cables, please not the following:
• Switch off power
• Secure against being switched on again
• Verify that equipment is isolated
• Earth and short circuit
• Cover or fence off nearby live parts
The UPS may retain residual voltage, which can be dangerous. The device may
only be installed by qualified personnel and, if opened, repairs may on be carried
out by qualified service personnel!
6.2 Connection cross-section and fuses
Refer to the required dimensions of the table below (based on DIN EN 60439-1

6.3 Mains and consumer connection
The in- and output cables are installed as follows:
• Connect the unit directly from the packaging for easier assembly, unscrew the
rear strain relief screw. Depending on the desired cable entry (from the top or
rear, e.g. dependent on the cabinet depth) break open the appropriate blanking
plates. If the UPS will be operated with two separate power cords, then break
open all three blanking plates; otherwise leave them untouched apart from the
outside left (bypass) blanking plate.
Fig. 13: Left, the detachable connection of the D. 6000 unit.
Right the Protect D. 10000, each shown with rear cable entry and dual-input.
• Strip the incoming and outgoing cables (after the onset of the cable glands) and
feed them into the terminal compartment of the Protect D. ensuring that the
proper strain relief glands are used.
• The cores of the cables hang at the appropriate terminal block. Ensure that
ferrules are applied to the cables ends before connection. Begin by installing
the ground (earth).
Check the bridges between “JP” and “L” (Feed-in bypass)
Remove the bridge unless you want to feed the bypass input of the UPS
separately or to operate the UPS in frequency converter operation (refer
chapter 6.2)
• Remove cable scrap, tools, screws etc.
• Install the previously removed strain relief gland back onto the Protect D. Make
sure that you do not crush the individual cables. Fix the rear right side (D.6000)
or rear left and right side (Protect D.10000) remaining mounting brackets for
later fixing of the terminal unit. Finally, with the aid of the guide pins, plug the
connector unit to the rear of the UPS and lock unit with the outer fixing screws.
35
Fig.14: Connection unit with mounting bracket(s) for final assembly at the rear of Protect D.
In the case of a joint distribution box. (circuits with both network as well as UPS
power), you must identify each respective circuit power supply (AC or UPS).
The load of the UPS should not exceed the specified maximum capacity of the
device at any time. If there is a device overload the red LED light will flag a fault
accompanied by an audible warning signal. Depending on the magnitude of the
overload, the supply to the connected consumers remains for an amount of time.
However, the connected load must be reduced immediately.
Failure to action the state “device overload” can lead to a total loss of all UPS
functions!
Do not connect household appliances or machine tools to the UPS.
Do not connect additional loads to the UPS or switch if there is a power failure.
i.e. the UPS is in standby mode!
As a rule, when in normal operation and no overload has occurred, then no
overload should occur in battery usage.
36
A flashing LED in conjunction with a fault signal indicates a disconnection fault.
Follow the instructions in chapter 9.1
Finally check the seating of the emergency shutdown connector and the cable
bridge. Check that the two outer screws of the plug are firmly seated (refer to
page 30 item 11)
If you would like to use the emergency function, refer to chapter 8.4 on page 58.
The built-in emergency shutdown of the UPS is only for power. This is carried out
electronically and does not constitute an EMERGENCY STOP device according to
DIN EN ISO 13850.
6.4 Contacting the battery modules
This chapter refers to the contact of the internal battery and then to a slide-on
connection of the optional external battery pack(s)
6.4.1 Connecting the internal battery
• Remove the four screws on the front panel with a suitable screwdriver (Phillips
PH1 recommended Item “E” of the illustration on page 26)
• Hold the Protect D. 6000 on the left and right sides behind the front panel and
carefully pull the UPS out about 70mm from the front of the rack frame (not
required with Protect D. 10000)
37
• Move the front panel a few millimeters to the left. The locking mechanism
should now be released
How to proceed D. 6000
• … you can flip up the entire font.
Do not disconnect the ribbon cable
to the LDC display! Please handle
carefully and with minimum force.
How to proceed D. 10000
• … you can move the entire front
panel forwards. Please handle
carefully and with minimum force.
• Now unscrew the left side located
on the battery compartment cover.
• Now unscrew the left and right side
screws located on the battery
compartment cover.
• Slide the battery tray carefully into
the slot on the left hand side of the
UPS. The connections for the UPS
front panel should be facing in the
direction of the front panel.
• Slide forward the two battery trays
connected to the terminals carefully
towards the back of the UPS.
38
• Connect the internal battery system
using the two battery connectors
(each consisting of a black and a red
plug) connect: black to black and
red to red.
• The battery modules automatically
contact the rear part of the UPS via
a special connector. To ensure
a proper connection, press the
appropriate slot towards the end
quickly and firmly into the connector.
When connecting, insert the plugs
quickly and firmly together. It is likely
that a small arc may occur. This is of no
significance.
• Fix the dismantled battery
compartment cover back in place.
If you are using the extensions in
conjunction with the UPS external
battery, then proceed to the next
chapter. Otherwise, close the front
panel carefully and be careful not
to pinch any of the wires.
• Now re-attach the demounted
battery compartment cover. Then
return the front panel back to its
original position.
39
• As a final step, remember to tighten the four centrally positioned cross-head
screws in the center to lock the panel into place.
• Finally, slide the UPS completely into the rack and attach the UPS on the side
with the supplied screws.
6.4.2 Connecting external battery extension(s)
The connection of the optional external battery unit(s) for the Protect D. 6000
takes place on the front, while on the D. 10000 it takes place at the rear. Due
to the different procedure for connecting the two variants, each is therefore
described separately in separate chapters.
Protect D. 6000
The front panel of the Protect D. 6000 should still be in the open folded up state.
Now remove the slot cover at the bottom of the UPS front cover.
Similarly to the UPS, also remove to the front panel(s) of the external battery
pack(s). Each front panel has a top and bottom slot cover. Now remove the top
slot cover on the front panel. If you are using more than one battery unit, remove
both slot covers in the remaining front panels so that you can wire the battery
units all the way through.
Now start to lay the battery wiring according to the following diagram. The
electrical connection takes place via the connection of the respective battery
connectors (each consisting of one green, one black and one red male): green
to green, black to black, red to red.
40
Make sure to press the connectors quickly and firmly into one another (green to
green, black to black, red to red). If you see a small electric arc while doing this,
this is no cause for concern.
Automatic detection takes place via a detection line, whose small transparent
RJ11 plugs are to be inserted in the sockets provided for this purpose.
As the last step, replace the front panels. The wires are to be threaded carefully
through the corresponding access slots and are protected behind the front panels.
Remember to tighten the four centrally positioned cross-head screws in the center
to lock the panel into place.
41
Protect D. 10000
As mentioned, the connection for the external battery pack(s) takes place at
the rear of the unit. Opening the front panel(s) is not required here.
Next, start with the contact for the first external unit. Remove the battery
connector cover from the back side of the UPS (see No.17 on page 28). Connect
the connecting cable affixed to the external battery pack from now on with the
UPS, according to the accompanying illustration. Insert the plug firmly and fully in
the reverse polarity protected battery connection jacks.
The next step pertains to the enclosed data cable with the small transparent RJ11
connectors. It is used for automatic detection of the battery unit(s). Connect the
UPS in turn with the first battery unit according to the illustration.
Repeat the above mentioned steps for adding additional external battery units.
In this case the connection of the next battery takes place on the previous one
and so on.
42

8. Interfaces and communication
8.1 RS232 and USB computer interfaces
There are several different interfaces available to control the UPS and conveniently
read out status messages and measurements. The interface log is designed to be
used with “CompuWatch”, the shutdown and UPS management software from
AEG. Use the RS232 or USB communication cable that comes with the device to
connect your UPS to a PC.
The USB and the RS232 communication interface rule each another out, i.e. either
USB or RS232. Pin allocation of the RS232 Sub-D9 jack:
2 = TxD; 3 = RxD; 5 = GND
8.2 Communications slot
There is a cover on the rear panel of the UPS (see no. 10 on page 29); remove it
to install additional, optionally available communication components, e.g.:
Relay card: Plug-in card with status messages, realized via potential-free relay
contacts (opener or closer)
Relay PRO card: As above, but with programmable pin allocation, connection via
terminal, additional option of remote On / Off
SNMP card: Plug-in card for the direct integration of the UPS into the Ethernet
network via RJ45 (TCP / IP)
SNMP PRO card: As above, but with the additional option of connecting and
managing an external sensor system
For details, please refer to the descriptions that come with each option. Additional
cards are in preparation.
The communication slot can be used in parallel to the RS232 or USB interface.
57
8.3 Shutdown and UPS management software
“CompuWatch”, the AEG software developed specially for these purposes,
continuously checks the mains power supply and the status of the UPS.
In combination with the “intelligent” UPS, this ensures that the data-processing
components and data backup are available.
The “CompuWatch” shutdown and management software supports a diverse
range of operating systems, including Windows 98 / ME, WindowsNT / 2000 / XP,
Windows Vista / 7, Linux SUSE, Linux RedHat, Novell Netware, IBM AIX, HP-UX,
SUN Solaris, Mac OS X, ...
Fig. 16: Example of a “CompuWatch“ screen
For details on the installation under the different operating systems, please refer
to the operating manuals on the CD.
Download updates are available from www.aegps.com.

8.4 EPO (Emergency Power Off)
All the devices in the Protect D. series are equipped with a connection that allows
the immediate shutdown of the UPS output to deactivate any connected devices
and does not follow the control software shutdown process.
Note:
Once the emergency power off has been activated, the UPS outputs are
voltage-free. The UPS will not return to normal operation until the emergency
power off has been confirmed / reset and a manual reboot is performed by
activating “UPS On” switch once again.
To install the Emergency Power Off, proceed as follows:
1.Check to see that the UPS is switched off and switch it off if necessary.
2.Remove the plug from the EPO insert on the rear panel of the UPS by
unscrewing the 2 outer screws (also see page 30 item 11).
3.Connect a potential-free opener contact (able to manage a load of at least
60 Vdc / 30 Vac 20 mA) with the pins of the plug.
4.To do so, use a flexible wire with a cross section of min. 0.5 mm2 or max.
2.5 mm2. Replace the plug and lock the insert into place in the base by
tightening the outer screws.
Note:
If you want to use an open contact rather than a closed contact, go to “Settings”
in the main menu and set “EPO operation” to (N.O.) “normally open”.
The Emergency Power Off installed only switches off the UPS voltage. This is done
electronically and is not the same as an EMERGENCY STOP system corresponding
to DIN EN ISO 13850.
59
8.5 Change-over contact
A potential-free change-over contact is located on the rear panel of the
Protect D. series to provide for external, potential-free signaling. For the exact
pin allocation, refer to the label next to the base. The contact load is 250V ac 3 A,
respectively 30 V dc 3 A.
Depending on the application, different messages can be allocated to the contact
using the operating panel (see chapter 7.3.6 from page 51 “Relay configuration”).
Use a flexible wire with a cross section of min. 0.5 mm2 up to max. 2.5 mm2.
Replace the plug and lock the insert into place in the base by tightening the outer
screws.

9. Troubleshooting
9.1 Malfunctions
The Protect D. issues detailed error messages to help you or the maintenance staff
to localize and interpret any malfunctions that may occur quickly and with high
precision. In the following, please find process / solution suggestions to eliminate
the problem that has occurred.
If you cannot solve the current problem, terminate the entire process, switch the
UPS off and disconnect it from the power supply. In this case, call our hotline (see

10. Parallel operation
10.1 Function
The concept of the Protect D. parallel operation requires the parallel operation of
max. 2 units of the same type. This yields the following feasible constellations:
1+0
Use of 1 device
max. 6 or 10 kVA
No redundancy
1+1
Use of 2 devices
max. 6 or 10 kVA
Redundancy active
2+0
Use of 2 devices
max. 12 or 20 kVA
Increased power
(no redundancy)
66
The active redundant parallel operation automatically goes into performanceenhancing operation, if the output power requirements exceed the UPS singleblock performance. Conversely, the active degree of redundancy will be activated
automatically when the power consumption is lower than the UPS single-block
capacity of two parallel-connected devices. As a rule they can be interconnected
on the low-voltage main distribution boards (LV), which include the external
manual bypass and the subsequent sub-distribution of connected load circuits.
Optionally, such a supply and paralleling field is available in the rack-mount (3U)
version including external manual bypass, from AEG Power Solutions through your
dealer (article-no. 6000012436).
10.2 Installation / connection of parallel field
operation
The power supply of each UPS is analogous to the description in chapter 6.
With regard to the bypass feed, the power supply secured per UPS has to
be made simultaneous, i.e. both UPSs are connected to the bypass input
terminals - (No mix!) and fed by the respective same phase.
The UPS outlets are each connected through a disconnector to the parallel
operation. Here again, the instructions are in chapter 6.
Generally applicable for UPS entry and exit wires: with wire lengths up to
10 meters per UPS the wire length differences may be max. 20 %, and for
lengths >10 m max. per UPS it may be 5 %.
The UPS outlet distribution must also be in accordance with the procedures
contained in chapter 6. Pay particular attention to the correct identification
of the individual switching elements, to prevent incorrect use later on. The
communication between the paralleled units occurs via an optional 15-pin
parallel operational line.
67
11. Maintenance
The Protect D. is constructed using modern, low-wear components. Nevertheless,
in order to maintain constant availability and operating reliability, it is advisable to
make visual checks (of the battery and the vents in particular) at regular intervals
(but at least every 6 months).
CAUTION!
Always make sure to secure the working area and carefully follow all safety
instructions!
11.1 Charging the battery
The battery is always charged automatically when connected to the mains power
supply, regardless of the operating mode
The total charging time for the battery after it has been discharged for a long
period of time can depend on the number of additional external battery packs
(see chapter 2.3 on page 13).
11.2 Maintenance checks
The following maintenance work should be performed:
Activity
Frequency
Described in
Visual check
6 months
chapter 11.2.1
Battery / ventilator check
6 months
chapter 11.2.2 / 11.2.3
11.2.1 Visual check
When doing visual checks, be sure to check whether …
• there are any mechanical damages or foreign bodies in the system,
• there is any conductive dirt or dust accumulation in the device and
• dust accumulation impedes the heat input or heat dissipation.
68
CAUTION!
Before performing the next step, make sure to switch off the voltage supply to the
Protect D.
If a large amount of dust has accumulated, the device should be carefully cleaned
with dry compressed air to allow for better heat exchange.
The time intervals of the visual checks to be performed largely depend on where
the devices are installed and the environmental conditions at these locations.
11.2.2 Battery check
You can tell whether the batteries are getting older by making regular capacity
tests. Every six months, make comparative checks with respect to the bridging
time possible by, for example, simulating a power outage. The load should always
show close to the same power requirements. If the battery time sinks drastically
compared to the previous check, please contact our hotline (see page 7).
11.2.3 Ventilator check
Check the ventilators regularly for dust accumulation and any noticeably irregular
noises. If the vents are clogged, they must be cleaned; if the ventilator appears
to be unusually loud or is not operating smoothly, please contact our hotline (see
page 7).
11.3 Battery replacement
CAUTION:
A battery can present a risk of electrical shock and can be very dangerous if
handled improperly.
The following precautions should be observed before replacing the batteries:
• Remove rings, watches and other metal objects.
• If the battery replacement kit is damaged in any way or shows signs of leakage,
contact your dealer immediately.
• Recycle or dispose used batteries properly. Do not dispose of batteries in a fire.
The batteries may explode.
69
Note:
The UPS internal batteries are heavy. Use caution when handling the heavy
batteries.
The internal batteries are located behind the UPS front cover (behind the LCD
control panel). The internal batteries are packaged together as one unit for easier
handling.
Note:
Should you also use external battery systems, for technical reasons we strongly
recommend replacing all battery systems.
External battery packs will be replaced through conventional battery-swapping.
Please talk to your local UPS representative.

12. Storage, Dismantling and Disposal
12.1 Storage
Long storage times without occasionally recharging or discharging can lead to
permanent damage to the battery.
If the battery is stored at room temperature (20°C to 30°C), there will be
a spontaneous self-discharge due to inner reactions of 3 to 6 % a month.
Please avoid storage at temperatures above room temperature. High storage
temperature will lead to the increased self-discharge of the battery.
To maintain full capacity and service life, batteries stored at room temperature
should be recharged every six months.
Before being put into storage, the Protect D. should be connected to the power
supply to ensure that the battery is completely charged. For the minimum charging time, please refer to the information in chapter 2.3.
12.2 Dismantling
To de-install the UPS, perform the same steps as for the installation in reversed
order.
12.3 Disposal
In the interests of environmental protection and recycling, please dispose of the
individual parts of the device as specified and according to the legal regulations
when its service life has ended. Please remember that any violation of these
regulations can be interpreted as a breach of the law.
