Maintenance bypass panels
Note: The maintenance bypass panel of a parallel configuration (up to four units) is
customized and therefore different from the below illustration.
The maintenance bypass panel provides overcurrent protection to the entire UPS system. It is also used
to bypass the mains power around the UPS instead of through the system, e.g. when UPS maintenance is
carried out.

out (e.g. if you want to install a conduit box or if you want to connect an XR Battery Enclosure
at a later stage).

Seismic Anchoring Preparation
Note: If seismic protection is required in your area, read this section. If not, proceed to
“Operating Environment” on page 12. However, if you install a 352 mm (13.85 in) enclosure,
it must always be equipped with the enclosure stabilizing bracket for enhanced stability (not
necessary to bolt the enclosure stabilizing bracket to the floor in non-seismic areas).
Drill floor holes for seismic anchoring
Note: If your UPS installation requires seismic protection, the UPS installation must be
anchored to the floor, re-using the brackets that also secured the enclosure to the pallets when
shipped. For easy determination of where to drill the holes, refer to the applicable drawings
below indicating hole positions and size.
Hole positions for a stand-alone UPS enclosure - 353 mm (13.85 in) and 523 mm (20.59 in)
Note: Recommended minimum number of floor bolts per enclosure is four; one in each corner.
Recommended floor bolt size: M8 mm (0.31 in).

Note: AC input/output over-current protection and AC input/output disconnect must be
provided by the customer.
Note 1: If the available fault current of the installation is below 30 kA, a lower kAIC-rated breaker can
be used.
Note 2: For breaker settings, refer to below table listing of available overload currents.
Note 3: If the available fault current of the installation is less than 1200 A for the 10 kVA and 15 kVA
UPS, and below 2300 A for the 20 kVA and 30 kVA UPS, a breaker (of the same value as for the bypass

Note 4: Recommended maximum rating of a single-fuse configuration if the internal bypass is to be
protected during a load short-circuit.
