INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS
1.1
Unpacking and Installation
NOTE
Read the entire manual before installing and operating the system. Upon receipt of a Liebert®
FPC™, the installer should perform the following steps to ensure a quality installation.
1.1.1
Unpacking and Preliminary Inspection
A quality installation begins on the receiving dock.
1. Inspect the shipment for damage or signs of mishandling before unpacking the unit(s). Check the
Shock-Watch™ indicator.
2. If the Liebert FPC was shipped in an export crate, open the shipping crate carefully.
Use care to avoid puncturing the container with sharp objects that would damage the contents.
3. Remove the packing and vapor barriers and inspect the equipment for any obvious shipping
damages.
NOTE
The units should not be loosened from the shipping pallet until all handling by forklift or
pallet jack is completed. Complete internal inspection should be accomplished only after
equipment positioning and prior to electrical hookup.
4. If any damage is observed, immediately file a damage claim with the shipping agency and forward
a copy to:
Liebert Corp.
1050 Dearborn Drive
P.O. Box 29186
Columbus, Ohio 43229 USA
1.1.2
Handling Considerations
The Liebert FPC is bolted to a wooden pallet to allow handling by forklift equipment.
The Liebert FPC is furnished with casters to allow the unit to be rolled into place after it has been
unbolted from the pallet. The unit should be kept on the shipping pallet until it has been moved by
forklift as close as practical to its installation location.
Refer to the cabinet drawings furnished with the Liebert FPC for the unit’s size and weight. Typical
cabinet dimensions and weights are shown in Figures 1 and 2.
The route to the Liebert FPC’s installation area should be planned to ensure that all passages,
including doorways, elevators, ramps and hallways, are large enough to accommodate the unit and
that the floors are strong enough to support the weight. Determine whether any corners or offsets
would cause problems in maneuvering the unit.
Emerson recommends removing the exterior side panels, if supplied, before the unit is moved. This
will prevent scratches, dents and other damage to the panels.

Unit Preparation
The Liebert® FPC™ may be easily removed from the shipping pallet and installed by customer
personnel. A typical procedure is as follows:
1. Set the palletized assembly in a level area where there is enough room to roll the Liebert FPC off
the pallet onto the floor.
2. Cut the shipping bands.
! WARNING
Risk of cutting metal bands under tension. Can cause injury and death.
The shipping bands may be under tension. Use appropriate eye, face and hand protection to
safeguard against injury from band backlash.
3. Remove the factory-provided ramp from its shipping position.
One ramp is provided for every five units.
4. Place the ramp adjacent to the pallet to provide a smooth path from pallet to floor.
5. Remove side panels from the Liebert FPC, if supplied. An Allen wrench for the side panels is
furnished in the installation packet.
6. Remove the bolts and two mounting brackets holding the unit to the shipping pallet.
Mounting brackets are located on either side of the unit.
7. Roll the unit off the pallet onto the floor.
8. Roll the Liebert FPC to the installation area. For units to be placed on a raised floor, use care
when positioning unit over the floor cutout to prevent the casters from falling through the cutout.
NOTE
Before maneuvering the unit into its final position, read and follow all advisories in 1.1.4 Location Considerations
1.1.4
Location Considerations
The Liebert FPC should be placed near the load(s) it will supply, preferably within the data center.
Equipment location should employ the shortest output distribution cable runs consistent with logical
equipment arrangement and allowance for expansion.
The Liebert FPC is intended for indoor installation in an area with ambient temperatures of 32°F to
104°F (0°C to 40°C) with a relative humidity of 0% to 95% (non-condensing).
Bottom clearance is required for units with bottom entry/exit of cables. This clearance may be
provided by a raised floor at least 6" (150mm) high. Figures 1 and 2 show the typical raised-floor
cutout dimensions for cables and cooling airflow.
When units are not installed on a raised floor, or if the raised floor will not support the unit, optional
floor pedestals may be used. (CSA regulations require Liebert FPC arrangements employing a raised
floor. Non-raised floor applications are not CSA approved.) Units with top cable exit provisions do not
require bottom clearance.
Recommended minimum service clearances are shown in Figure 3. The National Electrical Code
(NEC) requires the indicated front and rear clearances for service access. Clearance above the unit is
required for cooling airflow (exhaust).
As do all electrical devices, the Liebert FPC produces heat under normal operation. (See Table 3.)
This heat must be accounted for when calculating the environmental conditions of the room.

Floor Pedestal Installation
Floor pedestals are optional equipment that provide clearance for bottom cable entry or exit for
Liebert® FPC™ units not installed on raised flooring. The pedestals are adjustable over a limited
range (approximately 3-1/2" [89mm]) to allow leveling the Liebert FPC and minor adjustments in the
unit’s installed height.
NOTE
Floor pedestals may be reverse-assembled for shipping. Before installation, the pedestals
should be reassembled as shown in Figure 4. When the pedestal is properly assembled, the
washer on top of the welded nut provides a bearing surface for the unit’s weight.
1. Insert the pedestal threaded shaft into the pedestal holes in the cabinet base as shown in
Figures 1 and 2.
2. Adjust the pedestal height by turning the welded nut/shaft assembly into or out of the pedestal
base as required.
3. Lock the height by tightening the jam nut against the pedestal base.
The pedestal may be anchored to the floor by means of the four holes in the base. Locations of
floor pedestals are shown in Figures 1 and 2.

Additional Distribution Mounting and Wiring
For Liebert® FPC™s with more than four panelboards, the additional panelboards are furnished in
Liebert FDC™ enclosures, which are shipped separately from the Liebert FPC.
1.2.1
Liebert FDC Distribution Mounting
The Liebert FDC distribution cabinet has the same base dimensions as a 23" (584mm) Liebert
FPC cabinet (23-1/2" wide x 38" deep [597 x 965mm]) and may be mounted on either the left or right
side of the Liebert FPC.
1. Provide a floor cutout for exit of output cables, as shown in Figure 1.
2. Remove the side panel, internal panel and the lower panel bracket from the Liebert FPC.
3. Remove the Liebert FDC side panel and internal panel, if supplied, and align the Liebert FDC
with the Liebert FPC and bolt the units’ frames together (hardware provided by others).
If floor pedestals are used for the Liebert FPC, two additional floor pedestals are required for the
outside corners of the Liebert FDC. See Figure 1.
4. Install the lower panel bracket on the opposite side of the Liebert FDC cabinet.
5. Make electrical connections. For details, see “Electrical Field Connections” drawings supplied
with the unit.
6. Install the Liebert FPC side panel on the Liebert FDC cabinet.
1.2.2
Distribution Cabinet Electrical Connections
Five field-supplied conductors (3-phase conductors, neutral and ground) are needed to connect the
Liebert FDC cabinet to the Liebert FPC cabinet in the field.
For Liebert FPCs with transformers, the distribution cabinet phase conductors are connected directly
to the transformer terminals:
Phase A to X1
Phase B to X2
Phase C to X3
The Liebert FDC’s neutral and ground conductors are connected to the Liebert FPC’s neutral busbar
and main ground busbar (see unit wiring diagram for location).
For Liebert FPCs without transformers, the distribution cabinet phase and neutral conductors are
connected to the corresponding output power distribution terminal blocks inside the Liebert FPC. The
distribution cabinet ground conductor is connected to the main ground busbar.
For Liebert FPCs with VPMP monitoring, route each distribution cabinet conductor through the
appropriate current transformer (CT) in the Liebert FPC.
NOTE
Distribution cabinet conductors must pass through the current transformers in the same
direction as the Liebert FPC panelboard conductors. Use the existing Liebert FPC panelboard
wiring for reference.

Installation Instructions
1.3
Power and Control Wiring
Power and control wiring should be installed by licensed electricians. All power and control wiring
must comply with the NEC and applicable local codes.
1.3.1
Input Power Connections
If the Liebert® FPC™ is furnished with a main input junction box, input power connections are made
as detailed in 1.3.2 - Junction Box Installation.
If a junction box is not furnished, the input power feeder is connected to the main input circuit
breaker located inside the Liebert FPC. (See Figures 5 through 7.)
! WARNING
Risk of electric shock and arc flash. Can cause injury and death.
Verify that all incoming line voltage (power) and low-voltage (control) circuits are
de-energized and locked out before installing cables or making connections, whether in the
junction box or in the Liebert FPC.
To minimize disturbances from other loads in the building, the 3-phase power input to the Liebert
FPC should be supplied directly from the service entrance or other power source (a dedicated power
feeder).
The input feeder circuit should be sized in accordance with the NEC and any local building codes to
ensure the feeder’s ability to safely carry the system’s full load current, including losses.
Input feeder conductors should be sized for no more than 2% voltage drop. If operation at
undervoltage conditions for extended periods of time is desired, the input feeders must be oversized.
Typical conductor size data is shown in Table 4. All connections must comply with the NEC and all
other applicable codes.
For units with a transformer, the main input feeder should consist of 3-phase conductors and one
(safety) ground conductor (3W + G).
For units without a transformer, the main input feeder must consist of 3-phase conductors, one
neutral and one (safety) ground conductor (4W + G).

Junction Box Installation
Main input (power) and low-voltage (control) junction boxes are available for the Liebert® FPC™ to
simplify customer connections.
The junction boxes, if used, can either be shipped with the system or can be advance-shipped for
installation during the roughing-in stage of new construction.
Liebert supplies flexible, 10-foot-long (3m) conduit with cables for connecting the junction boxes to the
unit. The junction boxes should be installed a maximum of 8 ft. (2.4m) from the feeder entrance of the
unit.
Liebert recommends centering the junction boxes under a floor tile that is easily removed.
Junction box connections must be installed in compliance with the NEC and all other applicable
codes.
! WARNING
Risk of electric shock and arc flash. Can cause injury and death.
Verify that incoming line voltage (power) and low-voltage (control) circuits are de-energized
and locked out before installing cables or making any connections in the junction box.
Typical junction box connections are shown in Figure 14 and described in 1.3 - Power and Control
Wiring.

System Grounding
The performance and safety of any power conditioning system depend on proper grounding.
Figure 10 shows the typical grounding arrangements for the Liebert® FPC™.

Installation Instructions
Equipment Grounding
Equipment grounding is primarily for safety. Correct implementation of grounding also enhances
equipment performance. All power feeders must include equipment grounding means as required by
the NEC and local codes.
An insulated ground conductor is recommended to be run in each feeder conduit. Ground conductors
must be at least the minimum size per NEC Table 250-66. Larger wire sizes may be used for
increased system performance.
If the input power feeder conduit is used as a grounding conductor, adequate electrical continuity
must be maintained at all conduit connections.
WARNING
Risk of electric shock. Can cause equipment damage, improper operation, injury and death.
Isolating bushings must not be used in a metal conduit run. These busings might prevent the
system from being properly grounded.
Signal Reference Grid
If the unit is used to supply power to a computer room or area that is equipped with a signal reference
grid or a grounded raised-floor stringer system, a grounding conductor should be connected from the
system ground bus to the grid or floor system. This conductor should be stranded or braided #8 AWG
or larger, and as short as practical. Less than 3 ft. (1m) is recommended.
1.3.4
Grounding Electrode Conductor for Liebert® FPCs With Transformer
Required by code - The Liebert FPC™ with transformer must be grounded according to the safety
practices of NEC 250-26. A local grounding electrode conductor is recommended in addition to the
equipment safety ground which is normally run with the input power conductors. (See Figures 5
through 7.)
As shown in Figure 10, the grounding electrode conductor is run from the unit to the nearest
effectively grounded location (listed in order of preference):
• Building steel
• Metal water pipe
• Other made grounding electrode
The grounding electrode conductor’s size is based on the secondary circuit conductors. Table 10
shows the minimum recommended grounding electrode conductor according to the NEC
(Table 250-66).

Output Power Connections
Output circuit breaker(s) and/or panelboards with ground and neutral provisions are provided inside
the unit for connecting load(s) as required. (See Figures 5 through 7.)
Flexible output distribution cables for use in data processing areas under a raised floor are optional
and may be factory-supplied. Cable lengths and layout should be well-planned:
• Cable access—Cable routes should follow aisles between equipment. This will facilitate access to
cables for installation, routine inspection and alterations.
• Cable length—Measure the distance to the load equipment following right-angle paths, rather
than diagonally or directly. Always measure to the extreme far side of the equipment with respect
to the unit to ensure adequate cable length.
• Air circulation—Prevent restriction of airflow under the raised floor by running the flexible
conduits flat on the subfloor, in parallel paths.
For best performance, the Liebert® FPC™ should be installed as close as practical to the load.
Initial system output loading should be between 50% and 75% of rated capacity. This allows the
addition of loads without immediately investing in another power conditioner. The high partial-load
efficiency of the Liebert FPC permits such sizing without imposing an energy-use penalty during
initial operation.
Balancing of loads is good design practice on any 3-phase system. Accordingly, each distribution panel
is load-balanced at the factory, based on output branch circuit breaker sizes. All additions to the
system should be arranged so as to preserve this balance.
! WARNING
Risk of electric shock and arc flash. Can cause injury and death.
Verify that all incoming line voltage (power) and low-voltage (control) circuits are
de-energized and locked out before installing cables or output breakers or making
connections, whether in the junction box or in the unit.
Verify that incoming line voltage circuits are de-energized and locked out before installing
output breakers and cables.
Code Compliance—All output cables and connections must comply with the NEC and all other
applicable codes.
Padlock-Off Provisions—All output cables without receptacles that are hard-wired to the load
equipment must be equipped with a padlock-off accessory for the output circuit breaker. The
padlock-off accessory is to be used to lock-out and tag the circuit breaker when service is performed on
the hard-wired load equipment in accordance with OSHA safety rules.

Control Wiring Connections
Liebert® power conditioning systems have provisions for external shutdown control from Remote
Emergency Power Off (REPO) stations. Figure 12 is a simplified diagram of the shutdown circuitry
of the Liebert FPC™.
Low-Voltage Control Circuit
Control wiring connections must comply with the NEC and all other applicable codes.
! WARNING
Risk of electric shock and arc flash. Can cause injury and death.
Verify that all incoming high-voltage (power) and low-voltage (control) circuits are
de-energized and locked out before installing cables or making connections, whether in the
junction box or in the unit.
As shown in Figure 12, the control circuit operates on 24VDC. The shutdown device (represented by
the REPO switch) activates a low-current, 24VDC relay that in turn operates the shunt-trip
mechanism. The shunt-trip solenoid opens the Main Input Breaker, which de-energizes the power
center.
Multiple-Unit Shutdown
When more than one power center is installed by the user, a typical requirement is that actuation of a
single device (REPO for example) must shut down all power centers. The low-voltage control circuits
of all standard Liebert FPC systems are designed to meet this requirement.
External Control Wiring Connections
External control wiring connections for remote shutdown, alarm, and/or monitoring are made to the
low-voltage junction box (if used) or to the adapter board terminal strip located inside the unit.
Control wiring connections vary with the type of monitoring system furnished with the unit. Typical
control wiring configurations are shown in Figures 12 through 15.

Adapter Board
The Adapter Board (AB) provides customer interface to the Liebert® FPC™ monitoring systems for
units without Low-Voltage Junction Box. Connections are made to terminal strip TB1 for Remote
Emergency Power Off (REPO) switches, summary alarm contacts and customer alarms (VPMP
monitoring). The AB is mounted on top of the monitoring enclosure located inside the top right corner
of the unit.
A field-selectable switch (S1) on the AB allows the VPMP to be set up for either Manual or Auto
restart. The factory default setting is Manual.
• Manual Restart allows for an orderly supervised startup after power failure. The control circuit
automatically energizes the shunt trip mechanism of the main input breaker upon sensing output
voltage failure.
• Auto Restart deactivates the manual restart function. In Auto Restart mode, the main input
breaker does not trip due to power failure and the unit will restart when power is restored.
If two Liebert LDMF systems are provided, the summary alarm contacts from each Liebert LDMF are
tied to the Customer Summary Alarm on the adapter board.

Emergency Shutdown—If Emergency Power Off switch is supplied
To perform an immediate system shutdown during emergency conditions, rotate the clear protective
cover and push the Emergency Power Off (EPO) switch on the Liebert® FPC™’s monitoring panel.
NOTE
Depending on the particular control circuit wiring, operation of the unit EPO switch may cause
other equipment to also shutdown.
If the site is equipped with a Remote Emergency Power Off (REPO) switch to perform an immediate
room shutdown, actuate one of the REPO switches.
4.1.2
Normal System Shutdown
To perform a normal system shutdown, perform an orderly load equipment shutdown according to the
load equipment manufacturer’s recommended shutdown sequence. The load equipment can be turned
Off at each piece of load equipment or at the Liebert FPC’s output distribution (circuit breaker)
panels located behind the Liebert FPC’s front door. Turn Off all unit output breakers, then turn Off
the unit’s main input circuit breaker. To remove all power from the Liebert FPC, turn Off the building
power to the Liebert FPC’s input breaker or junction box.
4.1.3
Normal System Turn On
Make certain all of the Liebert FPC’s circuit breakers are in the Off position. All unit circuit breakers
are located behind the front doors. Turn On building power to the Liebert FPC. Turn On the Liebert
FPC’s main input circuit breaker. If the circuit breaker has been tripped Off (instead of being turned
Off), the circuit breaker handle must be moved to the Off position before being turned On. If the
Liebert FPC has a voltage monitoring panel, verify proper output voltages before turning On output
circuit breakers. Turn On the panelboard main breakers. Turn On each output circuit breaker
following the load equipment manufacturer’s startup sequence.
4.1.4
Manual Restart
The Manual Restart feature is designed to cause the unit’s main input circuit breaker to trip upon
power failure, preventing repetitive application of unstable voltage and allowing for an orderly
system restart. If the main input circuit breaker is tripped upon a power failure, wait until power is
restored, then follow the instructions in 4.1.3 - Normal System Turn On.
4.1.5
Auto Restart
If the Auto Restart feature is selected the unit’s main input breaker will not trip upon power failure,
Auto Restart does not affect the Emergency Power Off circuit—both local and remote EPO switches
will trip the main input breaker when pressed.
Auto Restart can be field-selected by sliding the S1 switch on the adapter board to the Auto position.
The adapter board is located on top of the monitoring enclosure. See Figure 15) for details.

Basic Monitor Panel
Basic Monitoring provides transformer overtemperature alarm, transformer overtemperature
shutdown and Emergency Power Off controls only.
Display Controls and Indicators
• Power Indicator (Green LED) - illuminates when power has been applied to the Liebert Power
product.
• Alarm Status Indicator (Red LED) - illuminates when an alarm is present. The LED will
remain illuminated until the alarm condition is cleared.
• Audible Alarm speaker (represented by the speaker symbol) - a speaker behind the bezel will
sound when there is an alarm condition.
• Silence/Reset Push Button - pressing the Silence/Reset button will silence the audible alarm.
Press the button a second time to clear the alarm and turn off the red alarm indicator LED.
• LCD - Not used
• Emergency Power Off (EPO) Push Button - pressing the EPO button shunt trips the input
circuit breaker to turn the unit off.
• Navigation keys (soft function keys F1 through F4 and Help) - Not used.
If an overtemperature condition occurs—when the transformer temperature exceeds 356°F (180°C)—
it should be investigated and corrected. Possible causes include transformer overload, excessive nonlinear loading, inadequate ventilation, high or low input voltage and monitoring malfunction.
Failure to correct the overtemperature condition may result in an automatic system shutdown due to
the second stage of overtemperature sensing, when the transformer temperature exceeds 392°F
(200°C). After the alarm condition is corrected, the alarm will automatically reset.
See Figure 13 for remote summary alarm and Remote Emergency Power Off switch connections.
