Section 2: Description of Your SuperCap UPS System
The UPS module is a true online double-conversion UPS.
This means that the module is designed with a rectifier directly driving an inverter, even when
powered from normal AC current.
It will provide near-instantaneous protection from input power interruptions by means of one or
more attached batteries or an associated ‘energy storage unit’.
A multifunction LCD control panel indicates the status of the system and allows the user to make
parameter adjustments.
Communication options include power-monitoring & system management software and SNMP
capability.
The SuperCap UPS System consists of two parts:
1. UPS Module
2. Energy Storage Module
The Supercapacitor-based Energy Storage Module is an alternative to expensive and hazardous
external batteries. The Energy Storage Module is designed specifically for applications requiring
short-term backup to sensitive loads that either need to ride-through voltage sags and momentary
power outages or simply bridge the startup of a generator.
The Energy Storage Module can be charged independently of the UPS module. Unlike the
charging times required by standard UPS batteries, the Energy Storage Unit can charge to nearfull capacity in less than 5 minutes.
Key Features
1. Green, maintenance-free energy storage.
2. User-friendly, modular component system.
3. Lighter than other technologies.
4. Superior power density over batteries.
5. Virtually unlimited cycle life.
6. Multiple microprocessor and double-conversion design base.
7. High input power factor and DC-start function.
8. Protection against voltage sags and surges plus input frequency fluctuations.
9. Remote monitoring with an RS-232 interface and an optional network interface card.

STORAGE
MODULE
2. Normal Operation:
There are two main loops when AC utility is normal: the AC loop and the capacitor charging loop.
The AC output power comes from AC utility input and passes through AC/DC rectifier, DC/AC
inverter and static switch to support power to load. The capacitor charging voltage comes from
AC utility input and converted by AC/DC charger to support capacitor-charging.

Application Backup Time Considerations:
The backup time that a SuperCap system can supply a load depends on the useable energy
stored in the Energy Module capacitors as well as the characteristics of the load being
supported.
In order to determine if the available power produced by the SuperCap system will be adequate
for a specific application, several characteristics of the load must be known or determined.
These characteristics include:




the RMS input voltage
the load current in amps
the power factor of the load (a number between 0 and 1 )
the backup time required in seconds
The input voltage, the load current and the power factor can all be measured fairly accurately by
using an instrument such as the Fluke 43B Single Phase Power Quality Analyzer or equivalent.
As an example, a 3000VA, 2100 Watt model at either 120V or 230V provides an approximate
backup time of 15 seconds at full load, and 45 seconds at half load.
The graph below illustrates the approximate capacities and times expected for these loads:
12
Section 3: Installation
DANGER!
The UPS module is available in both 120V and 230v models. Be sure to connect the UPS
to the proper AC power source. Connecting the UPS to the wrong power source can cause
damage to the UPS and potential injury to the operator.
The UPS module also requires an Energy Storage Module. Use caution when connecting
the Energy Storage Module cable to the UPS Module. Do not allow the conductors on the
DC connector to make contact with any metal object or with each other.
The SuperCap UPS System contains dangerous voltage levels!
Dangerous and potentially lethal charges can remain on the capacitors of the Energy
Storage Unit even after it has been turned off and disconnected from the AC input line.
Before moving, storing, carrying out capacitor bank replacement or shipping the system.
Ensure that the Energy Storage Module capacitors are completely discharged by putting
the UPS module in backup mode.
1. With the UPS Module ON (Normal Mode) and a load connected.
2. Remove AC Input.
3. Let it run in backup mode until it shuts off all cables are disconnected.
CAUTION!
Prior to Start Up make sure the load is disconnected or in the “OFF” position, and verify
that the input voltage meets the rating required by the UPS!
Transporting
1. Disconnect all power cables if necessary.
2. Be careful not to damage the UPS while transporting.
3. Don‘t move the UPS upside down.
4. Please transport the UPS system only in the original packaging (to protect against shock and
impact).
Positioning
1. Do not put the UPS on rugged or declined surface.
2. Do not install the UPS system near water or in damp environments.
3. Do not install the UPS system where it would be exposed to direct sunlight or near heat.
4. Do not block off ventilation openings in the UPS system’s housing and don’t leave objects on
the top of the UPS.
5. Allow a minimum distance of 10cm (3.9 inches) in the rear and two sides of the UPS for
ventilation.
4. Keep the UPS far away from heat emitting sources.
6. Do not expose it to corrosive gas.
7. Ambient temperature: 0℃ - 40℃ (32°F – 104°F).



Connect the UPS Module and Energy Storage Module only to a grounded AV Input
Source.
Place cables in such a way that no one can step on or trip over them.
Do not disconnect the mains cable on the UPS system or the building wiring socket outlet
during operations since this would cancel the protective grounding of the UPS system
and of all connected loads.
The UPS has its own internal power source (Supercapacitor). The output terminals may
be live even when the UPS is not connected to the AC supply.
Ensure that no fluids or other foreign objects can enter the UPS system.
CABLE CONNECTION
 The system should be installed and connected only by qualified electricians in accordance
with applicable safety regulations.
 When installing the electrical wiring, please be aware of the nominal amperage of your
incoming feeder.
 Please ensure that the incoming feeder is isolated and secured to prevent it from being
switched back on again.
NOTE:
When installing the UPS Module and/or the Energy Storage Module in a rack. Please
remove the rubber feet on the bottom of the respective pieces.
DANGER!
The SuperCap UPS System contains dangerous voltage levels!
Dangerous and potentially lethal charges can remain on the capacitors of the Energy
Storage Unit even after it has been turned off and disconnected from the AC input line.
Before moving, storing, carrying out capacitor bank replacement or shipping the system.
Ensure that the Energy Storage Module capacitors are completely discharged by putting
the UPS module in backup mode.
1.
With the UPS Module ON (Normal Mode) and a load connected.
2.

16
Step 1 - Connecting UPS Module to AC:
Option 1 – Connect the included power cord to an AC receptacle.
Option 2 – Connect the included power cord to the AC convenience port on the back of
the Energy Storage Module.
NOTE:
IF the Electronics Module is plugged into the AC convenience outlet located on the back
of the Supercapacitor Energy Storage Module make sure that the AC source to which the
Storage Module connects can support the combined currents that will be drawn by both
the Electronics Module and the Energy Storage Module. For example, at start-up the
Energy Storage Module can draw up to 15A RMS. The AC source must be rated to supply
this current in addition to the current required by the Electronics Module/UPS.
Step 2 - Connecting the SuperCap UPS to the Energy Storage Module:
The Energy Storage Module comes with a high-current DC output cord with a polarized connector
on each end. Check the orientation of the connectors and the DC sockets on the rear panel of
the UPS Module and the Energy Storage Module. Plug one end of the DC cord into the DC socket
on the back of the Energy Storage Module and the other end into the DC socket on the back of
the UPS Module.
17
Step 3 - Connecting the Energy Storage Module to AC:

Damage caused by failure to provide a suitable installation environment for the product (including, but not limited to,
lack of a good ground) will not be covered by this warranty. This warranty does not apply to damage caused by direct
lightning strikes, or damage caused by electrical disturbances that exceed published product specifications. These
products are intended to limit the maximum amplitude of transient voltage surges on power lines to specified values.
They are not intended to function as surge arrestors. The UPS is intended to be installed on the load side of the service
entrance and has been tested to verify that transient voltage surges are limited when subject to non-repetitive transient
voltage surge events. This warranty excludes any incidental, indirect, special or consequential damages, including
without limitation, labor for removal or reinstallation of the Marathon Power UPS or any connected electronic equipment,
data loss or alteration loss of equipment use, lost sales or profits and any such damages for delay or failure to perform

detailed information about the event, any damage, the UPS model number, purchase date and location. You will then
be provided with a Return Authorization Number (RAN), and be instructed to forward your proof of purchase (receipt),
an explanation of the event and your UPS. If Marathon Power determines that the damage was due to a “surge”, we
may request that all connected equipment be submitted for evaluation. Marathon Power is not responsible for shipping
costs. In the event that the equipment has been damaged by a “surge” Marathon Power will reimburse you for repair
or replacement at fair market value (on a pro rata basis) as indicated by the respective amounts above. The warranty
coverage is above and beyond, only to the extent needed, of that provided by any other source, including but not limited
to any connected equipment coverage, any manufacturer’s warranty or insurance policy. To receive payment for repair
to damage due to a “surge,” the original purchaser should (upon prior approval from Marathon Power) have such
equipment repaired by an authorized service center of such equipment’s manufacturer. The original purchaser will
