Introduction
1.0
INTRODUCTION
Congratulations on your choice of the Liebert GXT2-PP20KRT208 parallel POD. It allows parallel
connection of input and output up to three Liebert GXT2-10000RT208 UPSs.
The Liebert GXT2-PP20KRT208 parallel POD features an N+1 redundancy. While one Liebert
GXT2-10000RT208 UPS is available at 10kVA nominal power rating, connecting three UPSs in parallel provides 20kVA of output power, plus redundancy of one 10kVA UPS.
The Liebert GXT2-PP20KRT208 is a compact, parallel POD. A parallel POD continuously provides
conditioned power from connected Liebert GXT2-10000RT208 UPSs whether utility power is present
or not.
For ease and safety of installation, the Liebert GXT2-PP20KRT208 is designed with short-circuit protection and color-coded outlets for the UPS electrical connectors.
The Liebert GXT2-PP20KRT208 has three parallel ports to communicate with the UPSs.

SYSTEM DESCRIPTION
2.1
Compatibility
The Liebert GXT2-PP20KRT208 parallel POD is compatible only with the Liebert GXT2-10000RT208
UPS. No more than three Liebert GXT2-10000RT208 UPSs can be connected to the parallel POD.
2.2
Redundancy Design
During normal operation with parallel connection of three Liebert GXT2-10000RT208 UPSs, the parallel POD supplies 20kVA of output power plus redundancy of one 10kVA UPS. With the Liebert
GXT2-PP20KRT208 N+1 redundancy design, the failure of one UPS will not affect the functioning of
the overall system.
2.3
Maintenance Bypass
When the UPS system must be completely shut down, maintenance bypass allows the parallel POD to
work in the normal operation without interrupting power to the load. As shown in Figure 1, the Liebert GXT2-PP20KRT208 provides an alternate path for utility power to the connected load. In the
event that the UPS experiences a failure, the UPS battery runs out or any other condition occurs
requiring maintenance on the UPS, the user may manually transfer the connected load from the
inverter to bypass by switching the maintenance bypass breaker to the On position.

Liebert MultiLink™ Shutdown
The parallel POD supports the orderly shutdown of computer operating system through its compatibility with Liebert MultiLink 1.5 software. When properly configured to operate with Liebert MultiLink 1.5, the parallel POD will operate as a complete system; On Battery and Low Battery events
will not be sent from the UPS when it is operating in redundant mode and the remaining UPS is able
to support the total load.
For the paralleling system to work properly with Liebert MultiLink 1.5, each connected 10kVA UPS
must have an SNMP card properly installed and configured in the Liebert IntelliSlot ® bay. Liebert
MultiLink 1.5 will not work properly with the parallel system through the serial port connection.

The SNMP card must be properly configured with an IP ADDRESS, NETMASK and GATEWAY.
Refer to the SNMP card user manual for detailed instructions. The SNMP card must also be configured with a community string to be monitored by Liebert MultiLink. For details, refer to the Liebert
MultiLink 1.5 user manual, SL-53620, available at the Liebert Web site, www.liebert.com
Liebert MultiLink 1.5 also must be properly configured for the software shutdown to work properly
with the parallel system. Refer to the Liebert MultiLink 1.5 user manual for detailed configuration
instructions. Two important settings required for Liebert MultiLink shutdown to work properly are:
• The connection option “Liebert UPS (using SNMP port 162)” must be selected, either during
installation or later (see Figure 3; refer to the MultiLink 1.5 user manual, SL-53620, for details).
• The options “Enable shutdown after an on-battery event” and “Enable shutdown after a low-battery event” must be selected for Liebert MultiLink to initiate shutdown when either of these
events occur (see Figure 3; refer to the MultiLink 1.5 user manual, SL-53620, for details).

Parallel POD Main Electrical Connection—Must Be Installed
Electrical connections are made through a removable conduit box that attaches to the top of the parallel POD.
A branch breaker is required for short circuit or overcurrent protection. The installer must provide a
120A (@ 208V to 240V) branch circuit breaker. If the paralleling system detects any UPS with short
circuit or overcurrent, the input circuit breaker and the output circuit breaker on the rear fixed-panel
of the UPS will disconnect all power between the main cabinet and the distribution box.
The manual bypass breaker passes utility power directly to the bypass switch from the input terminal
block. The three UPS input circuit breakers on the POD do not disconnect power from the manual
bypass breaker.

COMMUNICATION
9.1
Communication Interface
The Liebert GXT2-PP20KRT208 parallel POD has three communication connectors for communication between the UPSs. These connectors must not be used for any other monitoring applications.
Each connected Liebert GXT2-10000RT208 UPS can be monitored as described in 2.4 - Liebert
MultiLink™ Shutdown. The recommended monitoring configuration is with the Liebert IntelliSlot
SNMP card option. Refer to the Liebert GXT2-10000RT208 user manual, SL-23444, for additional
information on UPS communication.
When more than one Liebert GXT2-10000RT208 UPS is connected in a parallel operation with the
parallel POD, each connected UPS will generate On Battery and Low Battery signals according to the
load and the capacity of the UPS. The serial communication is programmed to not send these commands when the total system is operating in a redundant status. This will provide the maximum
amount of up-time to the connected equipment.
NOTE
Use of the UPS DB-9 interface port or relay card option will not evaluate the redundancy
status of the parallel system before generating the On Battery and Low Battery signals. These
are generated with hardware logic circuits and cannot be disabled.
9.2
UPS Status Information
Liebert MultiLink permits monitoring the status of each UPS connected to the parallel POD. However, the status is reported separately to Liebert MultiLink—The parallel POD does not report system level information of the parallel configuration.
When all UPSs in a parallel configuration are monitored as described in 2.4 - Liebert MultiLink™
Shutdown, each UPS will report its own status to Liebert MultiLink. To determine the total load the
parallel POD is supporting, the individual UPS load levels must be added together.
When only one UPS is monitored by Liebert MultiLink, its load status will be the same as the status
of the other connected UPSs because each UPS supports an equal share of the load. If two UPSs are
connected, then the load level communicated by a single UPS must be doubled to determine the load
being supported by the parallel POD. If three UPSs are connected, then the load level communicated
by a single UPS must to be tripled to determine the load being supported by the parallel POD.
Battery statistics reported will be the condition of the batteries in a single UPS, not the condition of
all batteries in the parallel system. The battery run-time available is determined by the battery
charge and the load that the UPS is supporting.
When a UPS operating in a parallel redundant capacity shuts off due to its end of battery discharge,
its portion of the load will be shifted to the remaining UPSs. This is a step load increase onto the
remaining UPSs. The load increase will reduce the battery run-time available from the remaining
UPS or UPSs. This must to be taken into account when making the monitoring settings, such as the
low-battery warning time, in Liebert MultiLink.
Each Liebert GXT2-10000RT208 UPS reports its own operating conditions. When monitoring UPSs
connected in parallel with the parallel POD, the information reported by each UPS will equal its portion of the total load. Figure 15 shows how the total load is calculated from the load information of
each UPS.

UPS Configuration Settings
Refer to the Liebert GXT2-10000RT208 user manual, SL-23444, for additional information on using
the UPS Configuration Program.
When the configuration program is used with any of the connected Liebert GXT2-10000RT208 UPSs,
options selected are changed in all operational UPSs connected to the parallel POD with the parallel
communication cable.
If only one UPS is operational, or if any parallel communication cables are removed from the parallel
POD, then options selected with the configuration program will be made only it that operational UPS.
NOTICE
Risk of improper configuration. May cause equipment damage.
All UPSs operating in a parallel mode must have their output voltages configured for the
same value. Operating in parallel mode with UPSs configured for different output voltages
may damage the UPSs.
When optional settings are selected, such as the Auto-restart delay, the same configuration
choice must be made on all connected UPSs. This permits all UPSs connected to the parallel
POD to operate in the same manner.
