Important Safety Instructions
IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
SAVE THESE INSTRUCTIONS
This manual contains important instructions that should be followed during installation and
maintenance of your Liebert NXL UPS and DC source.
! WARNING
Risk of electric shock. Can cause equipment damage, injury or death.
Exercise extreme care when handling UPS cabinets to avoid equipment damage or injury to
personnel. Refer to separate installation manual for equipment handling information and
installation procedures.
Follow all DC source safety precautions in 4.0 - Maintenance when installing, charging or
servicing DC sources. In addition to the hazard of electric shock, gas produced by batteries
can be explosive and sulfuric acid can cause severe burns.
In case of fire involving electrical equipment, use only carbon dioxide fire extinguishers or
others approved for use in electrical fire fighting.
Extreme caution is required when performing maintenance. Service and maintenance work
must be performed only by properly trained and qualified personnel and in accordance with
applicable regulations as well as with manufacturers’ specifications.
Be constantly aware that the UPS system contains high DC as well as AC voltages. With
input power off and the DC source disconnected, high voltage at filter capacitors and power
circuits should be discharged within 5 minutes. However, if a power circuit failure has
occurred, assume that high voltage still exists after shutdown. Check with a voltmeter before
making contact.
AC voltage will remain on the system bypass, the UPS output terminals and the static bypass
switch, unless associated external circuit breakers are opened.
Check for voltage with both AC and DC voltmeters prior to making contact.
When the UPS system is under power, both the operator and any test equipment must be
isolated from direct contact with earth ground and the UPS chassis frame by using rubber
mats.
Some components within the cabinets are not connected to the chassis ground. Any contact
between floating circuits and the chassis is a lethal shock hazard. Exercise caution that the
test instrument exterior does not make contact, either physically or electrically, with earth
ground.
This equipment contains circuitry that is energized with high voltage. Only test equipment
designated for troubleshooting should be used. This is particularly true for oscilloscopes. Always
check with an AC and DC voltmeter to ensure safety before making contact or using tools. Even when
the power is turned Off, dangerously high voltage may exist at the capacitor banks.
Observe all DC source precautions when near the DC source for any reason.
ONLY properly trained and qualified service personnel should perform maintenance on
the UPS system. When performing maintenance on any part of the equipment under power, service
personnel and test equipment should be standing on rubber mats. The service personnel should wear
insulating shoes for isolation from direct contact with the floor (earth ground).
One person should never work alone. A second person should be standing by to assist and summon
help in case an accident should occur. This is particularly true when work is performed on the DC
source.

INTRODUCTION
1.1
General Description
The Liebert NXL UPS provides continuous, high-quality AC power to your business-critical
equipment, such as telecommunications and data processing equipment. The Liebert NXL UPS
supplies power that is free of the disturbances and variations in voltage and frequency common to
utility power, which is subject to brownouts, blackouts, surges and sags.
The Liebert NXL utilizes the latest in high-frequency, double-conversion pulse-width modulation
technology and fully digital controls to enhance its reliability and increase the ease of use.
As shown in Figure 1, the AC utility source is input at CB1 and the rectifier converts the AC utility
into DC power. The inverter converts that DC power from the utility—or DC power from the DC
source— into AC power for the load. The DC source will power the load through the inverter in the
event of a power failure. The utility source can also power the load through the static bypass.
If maintenance or repair of the UPS is necessary, the load can be switched without interruption in
service to the optional maintenance bypass.

Introduction
1.2
Modes of Operation
1.2.1
Normal Mode
Operating in normal mode, the Liebert NXL’s rectifier derives power from a utility AC source and
supplies regulated DC power to the inverter, which regenerates precise AC power to supply the
connected equipment. The rectifier also uses the utility source power to charge the DC sources.
1.2.2
Bypass Mode
When the Liebert NXL is in bypass mode, the load is directly supported by utility power and is
without DC source backup protection.
The Liebert NXL’s inverter and bypass static switch will shift the load from the inverter to bypass
mode without an interruption in AC power if the inverter is synchronous with the bypass and any of
the following occurs:
• Inverter fails
• Inverter overload capacity is exceeded
• Inverter is manually turned off by the user
NOTE
If the inverter is asynchronous with the bypass, the static switch will transfer the load from the
inverter to the bypass WITH interruption in AC power to the critical load. This interruption
will be less than 10ms. This interruption time may be altered by modifying the Output transfer
interrupt time setting.
1.2.3
Battery Mode
When utility AC power fails, the Liebert NXL protects the critical load by instantaneously channeling
DC source power to the inverter, which continues supporting the critical load without interruption.
When utility power returns and is within acceptable limits, the Liebert NXL automatically shifts back
to Normal mode, with the rectifier powering the critical load.
1.2.4
Maintenance Bypass
The installation of a Maintenance Bypass Cabinet or Assembly is recommended to allow you to totally
isolate the UPS from all power sources. Use of the Maintenance Bypass is described in 2.0 Operation.
1.2.5
ECO Mode
The ECO Mode feature improves the overall efficiency by powering the critical bus from the bypass
static switch instead of the inverter.
The user has the ability to start/stop ECO Mode manually via HMI or automatically based on time
and day of week schedule entries.
When the critical bus goes out of tolerance (voltage, frequency or slew rate), the BPSS is turned off
and the inverter powers the critical bus.
The inverter is always ready to take the load in the event that the bypass source fails.
1.2.6
Intelligent Paralleling
Intelligent Paralleling is intended to increase system efficiency and to reduce the operating hours on
the modules. Intelligent Paralleling will put one or more paralleled modules into standby operation
when the number of redundant modules is above the user-specified threshold, plus some hysteresis.

Options
A number of options are available from Emerson® for your UPS system. (Some options are not
available for all ratings.) Described below are the most frequently provided options. Other options are
available. Contact your Emerson sales representative for more information.
• Battery and Racks—The batteries provide power in the event of a power outage. The Liebert
NXL UPS can use a variety of battery types, provided the battery plant is designed for the
UPS DC voltage range and the load requirements of your application.
• Battery Cabinets—Valve-regulated, lead-acid (VRLA) sealed batteries are available in
matching cabinets for convenient installation and maintenance in otherwise unprotected space.
Depending on the UPS module rating, two or more cabinets may be connected in parallel to
provide the additional run time. This option is required to complete the UPS system.
• Module Battery Disconnect—The UPS system utilizes a separate Module Battery Disconnect
for remotely located batteries. A sensing circuit in the UPS module, set at the battery low voltage
limit, trips the Module Battery Disconnect to safeguard the battery from excessive discharge. The
Module Battery Disconnect has an undervoltage release mechanism designed to ensure that
during any shutdown or failure mode all battery potential is removed from the UPS system.
• Two Breaker Maintenance Bypass—This switchboard provides make-before-break
maintenance bypass. It includes: Maintenance Bypass Breaker (MBB) and Maintenance Isolation
Breaker (MIB).
• Load Bus Synchronization—The Load Bus Sync (LBS) option keeps two or more independent
UPS systems (and therefore their critical load buses) in sync, even when the modules are
operating on DC source or asynchronous AC sources. This means that critical loads connected to
both load buses can switch seamlessly between the two.
• Customer Alarm Interface—This optional interface board allows the input and display of eight
alarms from customer-supplied contacts, each with a customer-selected name.
• Temperature-Compensated Charging—When the battery temperature exceeds a preset limit
(typically 77°F [25°C]), this optional circuit proportionally reduces float charging voltage to
prevent overcharging the battery.
• Battery Load Testing—When activated, this option forces the battery string to assume the load
for a short period of time.

2.14.2 OK to Transfer
The OK to Transfer status message will be displayed when the bypass line and UPS output power are
both available, their voltage, frequency and phase synchronization are matched within specifications,
and the Static Switch Disconnects are closed (ON). An alarm message may be displayed to indicate
Load On Bypass (Figure 30). If no alarm is displayed, the operating status is Load On UPS
(Figure 31).
When the OK to Transfer message is displayed, the load can be manually transferred from the UPS to
bypass or the load can be manually retransferred from the bypass to the UPS.
To perform a manual transfer, Use the Load Transfer Procedures screen. Refer to 2.15.4 - Load
Transfer and Retransfer—Single Module System.
The UPS control logic will initiate an automatic transfer to bypass if an overload condition exceeds
the system current versus time window or if a UPS fault is detected. The control logic may initiate an
automatic retransfer to the UPS system when the system is recovering from overloads lasting less
than five minutes. Refer to 2.16 - Automatic Operations.

2.14.3 Input Power Failure—Load on DC Source
If the utility AC power source fails or is outside the acceptable range, the DC source becomes the
power source for the UPS module inverters. The UPS continues to supply power to the critical load
and also to the UPS controls.
Use the Battery Time screen at the UPS modules to monitor the present DC source voltage compared
to the shutdown value. The time the DC source can sustain the load depends on the size of the load
and the size and condition of the DC source.
Alarm messages that indicate DC source status are Battery Discharge, Low Battery and Battery
Shutdown. The voltage limits for these alarms are displayed on the UPS module Alarm Limit
Settings screen. These limits were selected for your installation by Liebert Services during initial
startup. The battery block in the UPS module Monitor/Mimic Display indicates Charge or Discharge
and the current in amperes.

This section lists typical step-by-step instructions. The touchscreen will list all steps required for the
process, based on the unit’s condition and other factors.
! WARNING
Risk of electrical shock. Can cause equipment damage, personal injury and death.
The following procedure provides power to the critical load distribution system. Verify that
the critical load distribution is ready to accept power. Make sure that personnel and
equipment are ready for the critical load distribution system to be energized.
If the installation includes a Maintenance Bypass, power may already be supplied to the critical load
equipment through the Maintenance Bypass. If there is no power to the critical load, apply power
through the UPS bypass line per the following procedure.
During startup, power is supplied to the critical load through the UPS (internal) bypass line while the
UPS system is being energized. Depending on the reason for the UPS system shutdown, power may
be present in the bypass line. To determine this, check the Monitor/Mimic Display screen after control
power is available.
NOTE
If the system was shut down in response to an “Emergency Off”, there may be alarm messages
on the touchscreen that describe system conditions before (or at the time of) the shutdown.
Some or all of the alarm conditions may have been resolved. To clear these alarm messages,
turn Off control power (see Figures 2, 6 and 7). Wait at least 10 minutes for the control power
circuitry to completely de-energize. After 10 minutes, turn control power back On.
! WARNING
Risk of electrical shock and high short circuit current. Can cause equipment damage, personal
injury and death.
If the UPS has been shut down for maintenance, verify that all of the UPS system doors are

control logic monitors the performance of the UPS, the availability of power sources and the current
required by the critical load.
The system control logic:
• Determines what overload conditions can be sustained without a transfer to bypass.
• Initiates an automatic transfer to bypass to sustain an overload or when selected UPS faults
occur.
• Can initiate an automatic retransfer to the UPS after an overload has been cleared.
• Initiates an automatic transfer to bypass and emergency module shutdown when specified UPS
faults occur.

The UPS system is capable of sustaining full output voltage (±2% of the nominal voltage) for overload
conditions that remain within (under) the current versus time curve of overload capacity (Figure 47).
Note that the time scale is not linear.
For high current demands of short duration (momentary overloads) the critical load is supplied
simultaneously by both the UPS system and the bypass line. Whenever an overload condition occurs,
you should determine the cause of the overload. If an overload condition exceeds the overload
capacity, the UPS system initiates an automatic load transfer to the bypass line.
For overloads above the Input Current Limit, a DC source, such as a battery system or a generation
source, must be available. The Input Current limit has a default setting of 125% rated output current.

Operation
2.16.2 Automatic Transfers to Bypass (Overload Condition)
The UPS system will initiate an automatic load transfer to the bypass line if an overload condition
exceeds the current-versus-time curve of overload capacity or if specified UPS system faults occur.
Load On Bypass is illustrated in Figure 30.
The Overload Transfer and Output Undervoltage alarm messages will initiate an automatic transfer
to bypass and the Load On Bypass message will be displayed. The active event window will display
the Automatic Transfer to Bypass message. Other UPS system faults will initiate an automatic
transfer to bypass followed immediately by the shutdown and isolation of the UPS system. Refer to
2.16.3 - Automatic Transfers to Bypass, UPS System Faults.
In an automatic transfer to bypass the output and bypass circuit breakers do not overlap as they do in
a manual transfer. The static bypass switch is fired (closed), the output circuit breaker is opened, and
the bypass circuit breaker is closed. Bypass power is supplied to the critical load through the static
bypass switch during the short time while both circuit breakers are open.
NOTE
A load transfer to the bypass line will be completed whenever an automatic transfer to bypass
is initiated. If the OK to Transfer condition is present, the load transfer will be uninterrupted.
If the Static Switch Unable alarm message is present for any reason, the automatic transfer
will be interrupted for 40 to 120 milliseconds. Because of the reliability of the UPS components,
an interrupted load transfer is a very unlikely occurrence.
2.16.3 Automatic Transfers to Bypass, UPS System Faults
For specified UPS system faults, the control logic will initiate an automatic transfer to bypass
followed immediately by a shutdown and isolation of the UPS system. The output, DC source (MBD)
and input circuit breakers are open. The bypass breaker will be closed if the bypass line is available.
Note that the bypass line is usually not available during Low Battery Shutdown. The circuit diagram
is the same as illustrated in Figure 34 for Emergency Module Off.
The following UPS system faults will initiate an automatic transfer to bypass:
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
DC Overvoltage Shutdown
Inverter Fault
Low-Battery Shutdown
Output Overvoltage and Undervoltage
Overload Shutdown
Equipment Overtemperature
Rectifier Fuse Blown
Refer to Table 10 for more information about these alarm messages.
NOTE
A load transfer to the bypass line will be completed whenever an automatic transfer to bypass
is initiated and the bypass line is available. If the OK to Transfer condition is present, the load
transfer will be uninterrupted. If the Static Switch Unable alarm message is present for any
reason, the automatic transfer will be interrupted for 40 to 120 milliseconds. Because of the
reliability of the UPS components, an interrupted load transfer is a very unlikely occurrence.
Some installations may include a Remote Emergency Power Off mode that can be initiated
automatically by a contact closure in the critical load equipment. Refer to 2.14.6 - Remote
Emergency Power Off.

Operation
2.16.4 Automatic Retransfers to UPS
In an automatic retransfer, the two circuit breakers (bypass and inverter output) are both closed
simultaneously for a short period of time (overlap).
The following critical bus conditions must be present to initiate an automatic retransfer of the critical
load from the bypass source to the UPS inverter:
1. Critical load was initially transferred to the bypass source due to a system overload only. A
manual retransfer from bypass is required if the transfer to bypass was caused by any condition
other than output overload.
2. Overload has since dropped below 100% of the rated load.
3. Both the Input and the DC source (MBD) circuit breakers have remained closed since the
overload transfer.
4. OK to Transfer signal received from the control logic for at least 10 seconds, within 5 minutes of
the system overload transfer. A manual retransfer from bypass is required for overloads lasting 5
minutes or more.
5. Cyclic-type overloads, which occur up to five (select range is 0 to 5) times in 60 minutes, are
automatically returned to the inverter for each event including the Nth overload.
NOTE
If you do not want the UPS system to initiate any automatic retransfers, this can be set during
the initial commissioning or by calling your local Liebert Services representative.

Digital Load Bus Sync
3.4.1
System Description
Liebert’s Load Bus Sync™ (LBS) option keeps the output of two or more independent Uninterruptible
Power Systems in synchronization, even when the systems are operating from different power
sources. The Liebert LBS works by synchronizing the Designates Slave System (DSS) to the output of
the Designated Master System (DMS). There are no other connections between the logic or controls of
either UPS. This ensures maximum system independence and reliability.
59
Liebert® NXL™
Options
3.4.2
LBS Configurations
• Load Bus Sync – Enable or Disabled (default: Disable)
• LBS Master Select - Master or Slave (default: Slave)
NOTE
The LBS settings permit proper operation with only one UPS set as the Master unit.
• LBS Slave Priority – 0 to 7 (default: 0)
NOTE
Setting of ‘0’ will disable LBS Slave Priority
3.4.3
Normal Operations
The LBS will synchronize the Designated Slave Systems (DSS) to the Designated Master System
(DMS). The DSS will synchronize to the DMS output if the DMS is in Normal, Battery, Bypass or
Maintenance Bypass Mode
If the DSS transfers to Bypass Mode or Maintenance Bypass mode, the DMS will then synchronize to
the output bus of the DSS. This re-selection of master will be accomplished automatically.
3.4.4
Slave Priority
When Slave Priority is enabled, the LBS system will work the same as Normal operations (See 3.4.2 LBS Configurations except when the DMS disqualifies it bypass source. If the DMS’s bypass is
disqualified, the LBS system will synchronize to the output of the DSS with the lowest Slave Priority
number that has a qualified bypass. The LBS system will synchronize back to the DMS when the
DMS’s bypass is qualified or all DSS’s bypass are disqualified.
If a DSS LBS Slave Priority is set to “0”, it will not assume the synchronization of the system if the
DMS disqualifies its bypass.
Figure 52 LBS configuration
3.4.5
Master System
The unit designated at power-up/reset to be the Master will monitor the LBS Sync Pulse line.
If two units are designated as Master, the second designated Master Unit to come on-line will inhibit
the LBS and synch to its own bypass.
The LBS Master will monitor the LBS Sync Pulse continuously; if the LBS Master detects that
another unit has transferred to bypass, the LBS Master will follow the unit on bypass.
• Slave can no longer follow the Master; the Master must follow the Slave.
When the Master unit is following a Slave LBS Sync Signal, it will generate the LBS Active event.
If the Slave LBS Sync Pulse stops, the Master will resume generating the LBS Sync Pulse.

3.4.6
Slave System
Any unit designated as the Slave upon power-up / reset will monitor and lock to the Master LBS Sync
Pulse.
When the Slave unit is on bypass, the Slave will generate the LBS Sync Pulse.
• The Slave will slew to be locked to its own bypass source. The inverter in the LBS Slave system
will follow the local bypass.
• When the Slave unit is on UPS, the Slave will stop generating the LBS Sync Pulse.
When more than one Slave unit goes to bypass:
• All systems on UPS will follow the first Slave’s LBS Sync Pulse
• All other Slave systems on Bypass will follow their own local Bypass Source.

Be constantly aware that the UPS system contains high DC as well as AC voltages. With
input power off and the DC source disconnected, high voltage at filter capacitors and power
circuits should be discharged within 5 minutes. However, if a power circuit failure has
occurred, you should assume that high voltage may still exist after shutdown. Check with a
voltmeter before making contact.
AC voltage will remain on the bypass and output circuit breakers and the static bypass
switch, unless associated external circuit breakers are opened.
Check for voltage with both AC and DC voltmeters prior to making contact.
When the UPS system is under power, both the operator and any test equipment must be
isolated from direct contact with earth ground and the UPS chassis frame by using rubber
mats.
Some components within the cabinets are not connected to chassis ground.
Any contact between floating circuits and the chassis is a lethal shock hazard. Use differential
oscilloscopes when measuring a floating circuit.
Exercise caution that the test instrument exterior does not make contact, either physically or
electrically, with earth ground.
In case of fire involving electrical equipment, use only carbon dioxide fire extinguishers or
others approved for use in fighting electrical fires.
! WARNING
Risk of electrical shock and high short circuit current. Can cause equipment damage, personal
injury and death.
Always identify connecting wiring prior to disconnecting any wiring.
Do not substitute parts except as authorized by Emerson®.
Maintain the UPS cabinets free of foreign materials such as solder, wire cuttings, etc.
Contact Liebert Services if you are not sure of the procedures to follow or if you are not
familiar with the circuitry.

Liebert Services
Startup, UPS maintenance, DC source maintenance and training programs are available for the
Liebert NXL UPS through your Emerson® sales representative.
4.2.1
Professional Startup
UPS Startup—Emerson’s customer engineers perform a thorough non-powered inspection of the
units and will then conduct a complete electrical checkout. The DC source installation is also
inspected and placed on an initialization charge to ensure cell equalization. Customer Operation
training will be conducted during DC source charge time.
Load bank testing and full site acceptance testing are additional services that can be performed
during a UPS startup. One preventive maintenance service call can be added to the initial UPS
startup agreement.
Battery Installation/Startup—When purchased with a UPS Startup, this Agreement provides
consistent, professional service for your entire UPS system. This one-source approach avoids conflicts
that may occur during a multisource installation. Note that Emerson requires a mandatory
installation inspection for all batteries not installed by Emerson customer engineers.
Battery IEEE Certification Inspection—The Battery Specialist will perform a detailed inspection
of the entire battery system to ensure it meets current IEEE standards.
Maintenance Agreements: The Signature Program
UPS Service Agreements—Liebert Services has a variety of available maintenance agreements,
depending on specific site needs. Choose the level of support appropriate for each installation.
Mission-critical sites can have the standard parts-and-labor, around-the-clock coverage for their UPS,
with or without scheduled preventive maintenance visits. Other sites can benefit from a variety of
money-saving options.
Emerson recommends two preventive maintenance visits per year for the UPS. The first can be
conducted with the UPS operational and includes an infrared scan of key UPS components.
The annual visit will require taking the UPS off-line for a thorough non-powered inspection.
These visits are in addition to the general housekeeping tasks (changing air filters, etc.) that can be
performed by customer personnel.
Battery Service Agreements—The same flexible Signature Program can also be applied to
contracts for battery maintenance. Again, the coverage needed will depend on the type of battery
purchased and the degree of support required from Liebert Services.
Training
Customer training courses include the proper operation of the system, emergency procedures,
preventive maintenance and some corrective maintenance.
Warranties
Contact Liebert Services if you have any questions regarding the warranty on your Liebert NXL UPS
or the batteries.

4.3
Routine Maintenance
You should become thoroughly familiar with the equipment, but at no time should you go beyond the
specific procedures in this manual while performing maintenance or correcting a malfunction.
If you have any doubt as to what must be done, call Liebert Services at 1-800-LIEBERT for further
instructions.
NOTE
Service and maintenance work must be performed only by properly trained and qualified
personnel and in accordance with applicable regulations as well as with manufacturers’
specifications.
The UPS is designed for unattended operation, but does require some common-sense maintenance.
• Keep good records—Troubleshooting is easier if you have historical background.
• Keep it clean—Maintain the UPS free of dust and any moisture.
• Keep it cool—Battery systems must be kept in the range of 72-77°F (22-26°C) in order to meet
design specifications for capacity and longevity.
The UPS will reliably meet all performance specifications and design life at temperatures up to
104°F (40°C). However, performance and longevity will be optimized when the UPS is operated at
the same temperature as the batteries. Contact your local Emerson® sales representative or call
1-800-LIEBERT for further details.
• Keep connections tight—Tighten all connections at installation and at least annually
thereafter (see torque requirements, Table 7.)
• Keep it inspected—Periodically inspect external upstream and downstream circuit breakers to
assure that the trip current settings are correct.
Become familiar with typical ambient conditions surrounding equipment so that abnormal
conditions may be more quickly recognized. Know what typical meter readings are and where
adjustable settings should be.
4.3.1
Record Log
Set up a maintenance log to record scheduled checks and any abnormal conditions.
The log should have space for all metered parameter indications including phase readings, alarm
messages, UPS mode of operation, air filter replacement date and observation notes. A second log
should be maintained for the DC source as directed by the DC source manufacturer.
A periodic walk-through inspection of the UPS and DC source rooms is advised to check for visible
and audible indications of problems. Log the inspection, metered parameter indications and any
discrepancies.
4.3.2
Air Filters
The air filters must be inspected and serviced on a regular schedule. The period between inspections
will depend upon environmental conditions. Under normal conditions, the air filters will require
cleaning or replacement approximately every two months. Abnormal or dusty conditions will require
more-frequent cleaning and replacement of air filters. Inspect installations in new buildings more
often, then extend the inspection period as experience dictates.
All NXL models have a replaceable air filter located inside the front doors. These filters can be
changed while the UPS is in operation.

Maintenance
4.3.3
Limited Life Components
The Liebert NXL UPS has a design life well in excess of 10 years. Well-maintained units can continue
to provide economic benefits for 20 years or more. Long-life components are used in the UPS wherever
practical and cost-effective. However, due to the currently available component material,
manufacturing technology limitations and the general function and use of the component, a few
components in your Liebert UPS will have a shorter life cycle and require replacement in less than 10
years.
The following components utilized in your UPS system have a limited life cycle and are specifically
exempt from warranty. To prevent a wear-out failure of one of these components affecting your
critical load operations, Emerson® recommends these components be periodically inspected and
replaced before the expected expiration of their life cycle. The expected life of each component listed
below is simply an estimate and is not a guarantee. Individual users may have site-specific
requirements, maintenance and other environmental conditions that affect the length of the
component's useful life cycle.

Battery Maintenance
! WARNING
Risk of electrical shock and high short circuit current. Can cause equipment damage, personal
injury and death.
These maintenance procedures will expose hazardous live parts. Refer servicing to properly
trained and qualified personnel working in accordance with applicable regulations as well as
with manufacturers’ specifications.
DC fuses operate at the rated battery voltage at all times. A blown DC bus fuse indicates a
serious problem. Serious injury or damage to the equipment can result if the fuse is replaced
without knowing why it failed. Contact Liebert Services for assistance.
71
Liebert® NXL™
Maintenance
4.4.1
Battery Safety Precautions
Servicing of batteries should be performed or supervised by personnel knowledgeable of batteries and
the required precautions. Keep unauthorized personnel away from batteries.
When replacing batteries, use the same number and type of batteries.
! WARNING
Risk of electric shock, explosive reaction, hazardous chemicals and fire. Can cause equipment
damage, personal injury and death.
Lead-acid batteries contain hazardous materials. Batteries must be handled, transported and
recycled or discarded in accordance with federal, state and local regulations. Because lead is a
toxic substance, lead-acid batteries must be recycled rather than discarded.
Do not dispose of battery or batteries in a fire. The battery may explode.
Do not open or mutilate the battery or batteries. Released electrolyte is harmful to the skin
and eyes. It is toxic.
! WARNING
Risk of electrical shock and high short circuit current. Can cause equipment damage, personal
injury and death.
The following precautions must be observed when working on batteries:
• Remove watches, rings and other metal objects.
• Use tools with insulated handles.
• Wear rubber gloves and boots.
• Do not lay tools or metal parts on top of batteries.
• Disconnect charging source prior to connecting or disconnecting battery terminals.
• Determine whether the battery is grounded. If it is grounded, remove source of ground.
Contact with any part of a grounded battery can result in electrical shock. The likelihood of
such shock will be reduced if such grounds are removed during installation and
maintenance.
Lead-acid batteries can present a risk of fire because they generate hydrogen gas. In addition, the
electrical connections must be protected against accidental short circuits which can cause sparks. The
following procedures should be followed:
• DO NOT SMOKE when near batteries.
• DO NOT cause flame or spark in battery area.
• Discharge static electricity from body before touching batteries by first touching a grounded metal
surface.
• After replacing battery jars in a battery cabinet, replace the retaining straps that hold the jars in
place on the shelves. This will limit accidental movement of the jars and connectors should the
cabinet ever need to be repositioned or relocated.
Regular maintenance of the battery module is an absolute necessity. Periodic inspections of battery
and terminal voltages, specific gravity and connection resistance should be made. Strictly follow the
procedures outlined in the battery manufacturer’s manual, available on the manufacturer’s Web site.
Valve-regulated lead-acid (sealed-cell) batteries do require periodic maintenance. Although
maintenance of electrolyte levels is not required, visual inspections and checks of battery voltage and
connection resistance should be made.
NOTICE
Risk of equipment damage. Batteries should be cleaned with a dry cloth or a cloth lightly
moistened with water. Do not use cleaners on the batteries. Solvents can make the battery
cases brittle.
Because individual battery characteristics are not identical and may change over time, the UPS
module is equipped with circuitry to equalize battery cell voltages. This circuit increases charging
voltage to maintain flooded type battery cells at full capacity.
Liebert® NXL™

Maintenance
! WARNING
Risk of electric shock, explosive reaction, hazardous chemicals and fire. Can cause equipment
damage, personal injury and death.
Do not use equalize charging with valve-regulated, lead-acid batteries. Refer to the battery
manufacturer’s manual, available on the manufacturer’s Web site, for specific information
about equalize charging.
Matching Battery Cabinets—Optional
Although the individual battery cells are sealed (valve-regulated) and require only minimal
maintenance, the Battery Cabinets should be given a periodic inspection and electrical check. Checks
should be performed at least annually to ensure years of trouble-free service.
Voltage Records: With the Battery Cabinet DC circuit breaker closed and the connected UPS
operating, measure and record battery float voltage. With the DC circuit breaker open, measure and
record the nominal (open circuit) voltage. Both these measurements should be made across the final
positive and negative terminal lugs. Compare these values with those shown below. The recorded
nominal voltage should be no less than the value shown; while the recorded float voltage should be
within the range shown. If a discrepancy is found, contact Liebert Services.

Maintenance
Other DC Sources
If the UPS system uses a DC source other than a factory-supplied Matching Battery Cabinet, perform
maintenance on the DC source as recommended in the DC source manufacturer’s maintenance
manual, available on the manufacturer’s Web site.
4.5
Detecting Trouble
It is important that the operator check the instrument readings if abnormal equipment performance
is suspected. Any metered value that differs appreciably from normal could mean an impending
malfunction and should be investigated.
Items to check include:
• If the UPS has not operated on battery power during the last 10 hours, the batteries should
require little charging current. Battery mimic should indicate normal DC voltage with the battery
charge current no more than 1% of maximum discharge current.
• Input current on each phase should be within 10% of the average input current.
• Alarm messages indicate malfunction or impending malfunction. A daily check of the Display
Screen will help to provide an early detection of problems. Refer to Table 10 for information
about interpreting alarm messages.
• Tracing a problem to a particular section is facilitated by alarm messages and the metered
parameter indications.
NOTICE
If the UPS system has an open fuse, the cause should be determined before replacing the fuse.
Contact Liebert Services for assistance.
4.6
Reporting a Problem
If a problem occurs within the UPS, review all alarm messages along with other pertinent data.
Contact Liebert Services at 1-800-LIEBERT to report a problem or to request assistance.
4.7
Corrective Actions
The recommended corrective action for each alarm message on the Display Screen is in Table 10.
4.8
Upstream Feeder Circuit Breaker Setting Inspections
During normal UPS operations, short-term overload current demand from the bypass source may
reach 10 times the UPS output current rating. This overload current demand may be caused by the
magnetizing inrush current of one or more downstream transformers (i.e., power distribution units)
or faults on downstream branch circuits. The instantaneous trip point(s) of the upstream bypass
feeder breaker(s) must be set to support these temporary overloads. The magnitude of short-term
overload bypass current demand is typically six to eight times the UPS current rating, but must be
determined by analysis on a per-site basis. This analysis, generally known as an End-to-End Fault
Coordination Study, must be done by a registered professional engineer experienced in this activity
and familiar with local codes and related requirements.
Emerson® highly recommends periodic inspections of the bypass feeder breaker instantaneous trip
settings, as well as the module input (rectifier) feeder breaker trip settings, to ensure that they are
correct. For a variety of reasons, although typically during circuit breaker maintenance procedures by
others, trip settings have been known to be inadvertently left improperly set. Correct trip setting of
these circuit breakers is most important to achieving high-availability from your Liebert UPS system.
For further information regarding proper trip settings for your feeder breakers, call 1-800-LIEBERT.
NOTE
The instantaneous trip setting of the breaker feeding the UPS bypass input should be high
enough to accommodate short-duration overloads. The bypass static switch power path inside
the UPS can draw up to 10 times the system’s rated current for up to three cycles.
NOTE
While Emerson can provide typical guidelines, the responsibility for the proper breaker trip
settings outside the Liebert-manufactured UPS equipment resides with the owner. Contact
Liebert Services at 1-800-LIEBERT for further details.

Event Message
Event Definition
Recommended Action
Auto Restart Fail
An Automatic Restart was enabled, but has
failed to complete.
With Automatic Restart enabled, the unit
automatically restarts after an End of Discharge
(EOD) event. This alarm means that one of the
auto restart requirements was true, but failed
before the restart sequence completed.
For example, one conditional requirement for
Automatic Restart to occur is that the Rectifier
Input Voltage must be within acceptable limits. If,
during the restart sequence, the input voltage

ECO Mode
Active
The ECO Mode feature improves the overall
efficiency of the UPS system by powering the
critical bus from the bypass static switch instead
of the inverter. If the critical bus goes out of
tolerance (voltage, frequency or slew rate), the
BPSS is turned Off and the inverter quickly
assumes powering the critical bus. The inverter
is always ready to take the load in the event that
the bypass source fails.
The user has the ability to start and stop ECO
Mode manually via the user interface or

module system, the load will be on the bypass
static switch. For multi-module systems the load
will be supported by the other modules.
The UPS will attempt to automatically recover
and reconnect the Inverter to the critical bus, if
the reason that caused it to disconnect has
cleared and the event is recoverable; for
example, a temporary overload.
The number of times the UPS attempts to
recover is limited. When the number of attempts
exceed the allowable number (default is 5
attempts per hour), the inverter will remain

When the ECO Mode feature is enabled and
active, the UPS system powers the critical bus
from the bypass static switch instead of the
inverter. But if the critical bus goes out of
tolerance (voltage, frequency or slew rate), ECO
mode is temporarily inhibited (or “suspended.”)
This event is generated when ECO mode is
repeatedly suspended and exceeds the user
setting for the maximum number of automatic
suspensions allowed.
Perform ECO Mode setup and operation by
pressing “CONFIG,” “User Settings,” “ECO Mode”
from the Menu Bar. ECO Mode can be configured
via the “Settings” submenu and manually
controlled under the “Operation” submenu.

Excess
Paralleling
When the controls detect a high amplitude, short
duration overload condition on the output, the
static switch is turned on momentarily in parallel
with the Inverter to attempt to clear the condition.
If the fault clears, the controls turn Off the static
switch and the load remains on Inverter. This
fault condition indicates the UPS pulse paralleled
too many times and is now locked on bypass
(auto re-transfers to Inverter are inhibited).
Press “SILENCE” to silence the audible alarm.
Check the Module Output Meter and verify the
output currents are normal, the kVA/kW
percentages are less than 100%, and the Rexfer
Time out is 00:00.

green.
Investigate any other active alarms or faults before
attempting to clear this fault.
Press “RESET” to clear the fault.
If the Event Window is clear, press “Transfer,”
“UPS” to transfer the load back to Inverter.
If the “UPS” button is grayed out, or pressing the
“UPS” button does not transfer the unit back to
Inverter, or if the UPS immediately transfers back
to bypass, contact your factory-authorized service
provider.
Fuse Fail
This is a summary event that indicates a fuse
has opened. There are several fuses that can
cause this fault.
The Fuse Failure event is caused by one or more
fuses reporting a failed status. The UPS may or
may not transfer to bypass as a result of the
failed fuse.
Press “SILENCE” to silence the audible alarm.
Check the One-Line Display and other indicators to

Low Battery
Warning
The battery is nearly depleted, and the unit shuts
down very soon.
The Low Battery Warning setpoint is adjustable

Check to see if bypass is available by observing
the One-Line Display. Acceptable bypass voltage
is indicated by a green power line feeding the
Static Bypass Switch (BPSS) box.
If bypass is available, press “Transfer,” “Bypass” to
transfer to bypass. If the bypass is qualified, the
UPS transfers to the bypass source.
If bypass is not available, prepare to shut down
critical loads, or remove non-essential loads in
order to extend battery run time so that critical
loads may be shut down in an orderly manner.
Low
Power
Factor
The output power factor is low.
The output power factor is less than 70% leading
or lagging. A simplified explanation of power
factor is the ratio of energy being supplied to
energy being used by the load. For a given load,
the current output of the UPS goes up as power
factor decreases.
This results in the UPS output being derated.
For example, study the following:
Load = 100 kw @ 480V
amps = kW X 1000 / volts X power factor X 1.73
(square root of 3)
100kW X 1000 = 100000
480V X 0.9PF X 1.73 = 747.36
100000/747.36 = 133.8A
Now, replace the 0.9 power factor (typical
computer load power factor) with 0.7 power
factor:
100kW X 1000 = 100000
480V X 0.7PF X 1.73 = 581.28
100000/581.28 = 172A
The load remains the same, but the current
required to supply it is roughly 30% higher. The
extra current is wasted energy that can result in
nuisance trips of breakers, overheating of
cables, and other unwanted conditions. The UPS
cannot control the output power factor.
This alarm is notification to the user that the load
should be evaluated.
Press “SILENCE” to silence the audible alarm.

Limit
The difference between the inlet air temperature
and the outlet air temperature is too great.
This alarm means excessive heat is being
generated internally resulting in a higher than
normal exhaust air temperature.
If the Bypass is within limits, the UPS reacts to
this alarm by transferring to Bypass and shutting
Off the Inverter.
This alarm is self-clearing. When the condition is
no longer present, the alarm and any control

Output
Fault
This summary event occurs when the detected
system output exceeds acceptable voltage limits.
If the UPS was on Inverter at the time of the
event, the UPS transfers to bypass provided the
bypass voltage is available.
If the UPS was on bypass at the time of the
event, the UPS shuts down rather than allowing
unacceptable voltage to reach the load.
Press “SILENCE” to silence the audible alarm.
Check the Active Event Window and investigate
other events to further analyze.
Press “RESET” to attempt to reset any latched
events.
Check the One-Line Display to determine the
system status (On UPS, Bypass, or Off).
Check the input and bypass (dual input only) and
observe the One-Line color. Green indicates good
power present, orange means power is present but
outside nominal range, and gray means power is
not present.
If the load is Off and the input voltage is ok,
attempt to restart the UPS by pressing “Startup,”
“Manual Start,” and follow the prompts.
If the Input Meter indicates input or bypass is not
available, investigate and resolve the power
problem.
If the load is on bypass and all alarms are reset,
press “Transfer,” “UPS,” to attempt to transfer back
to Inverter.
If the issue cannot be resolved, contact your
factory-authorized service provider.

The control has detected a communication
failure of a device on the multi-module
communication bus.
For example, the event will be annunciated if a
module is not communicating with the SCC.
The alarm is self-clearing. Once all modules are
communicating with the SCC, the alarm clears.
Press “SILENCE” to silence the audible alarm.
Use the System View on the touchscreen to see
what modules are not communicating. If one more
than one module is not communicating, then the
Parallel Communication cables have failed. If one
module is not communicating, then that module
might have developed a fault. Do not attempt to
transfer the load while this alarm is present.
Contact your factory-authorized service provider if
the condition continues.
The number of modules with Low Battery
Warning event active exceeds the number of
redundant modules online.
This alarm is self clearing. When the number of
modules with Low Battery Warning alarm active
is less than the number of redundant modules
online or when no modules has a Low battery
Warning event, the alarm and any control activity
tied to the alarm reverts to normal.
Press “SILENCE” to silence the audible alarm.
Check to see if bypass is available by observing
the System One-Line Display. Acceptable bypass
voltage is indicated by a green power line feeding
the Static Bypass Switch (BPSS) box.
The Control Software provides optimum load
protection by maintaining the load on UPS outputs
for as long as possible. If not enough modules
recover from a low battery condition to support the
load and if bypass is available, the load will be
transferred to bypass. Check the bypass line on
the one-line display. If the line feeding the Static
Bypass Switch (BPSS) is green, the system can be
transferred to bypass manually by pressing
“TRANSFER,” “BYPASS.” Note that transferring to
bypass could expose the load to an outage if the
bypass source fails.
If bypass is not available, prepare to shut down
critical loads, or remove non-essential loads in
order to extend battery run time so that critical
loads may be shut down in an orderly manner.
The number of modules on battery exceeds the
number of redundant modules online.
This alarm is self clearing. When the number of
modules on battery is less than the number of
redundant modules online or when no module is
on battery, the alarm and any control activity tied
to the alarm reverts to normal.
Press “SILENCE” to silence the audible alarm.
Observe the module one-line display. If the input
line is orange, black, or gray, the battery
discharging condition is normal.
If the input line on the one-line display is green,
check the Active Event Window for potential fault
conditions that could explain why the UPS is on
battery. An example of this could be “Rectifier
Fault.”
Monitor the UPS during the battery discharge. The
display shows the discharge curve of the battery.
When the battery voltage line touches the End of
Discharge line, the UPS shuts down.
The Control Software provides optimum load
protection by maintaining the load on UPS outputs
for as long as possible. If not enough modules
recover from a battery discharging condition to
support the load and if bypass is available, the load
will be transferred to bypass. Check the bypass
line on the one-line display. If the line feeding the
Static Bypass Switch (BPSS) is green, the system
can be transferred to bypass manually by pressing
“TRANSFER,” “BYPASS” to transfer the load to
the bypass source. Note that transferring to bypass
could expose the load to an outage if the bypass
source fails.
If the battery is discharging because of a fault such
as “Rectifier Fault” in the Active Event Window
rather than an actual power outage, transfer to
bypass if available, and contact your factoryauthorized service provider.
