The Answer in Power Protection
SOLA 610 UPS Installation
2.1 Introduction and Product Description
An Uninterruptible Power System is designed to connect between
your utility supply wall outlet or distribution board
and your critical load. Its function is to continually
monitor the availability and quality of the electrical
supply and to recreate the mains voltage to remain
within the UPS specifications, as detailed for each
model.
Your SOLA 610 is an advanced true on-line sine
wave UPS with bypass line, utilising double
conversion technology.
The utility power enters the UPS where it is
rectified to a DC voltage which will float charge the
battery as well as run the DC to AC inverter. The
inverter generates the true sine wave output,
recreating the utility supply voltage. A bypass path
is provided through a transfer switch, should the
UPS become overloaded or an inverter fault occur.
Because the UPS is an on-line design, conditioned power is provided
continuously to your load. During an electrical power failure, the unit
employs its internal maintenance free battery to supply continuous
power for as long as the battery is capable. The UPS autonomy after
a power failure will depend on (a) the size of the UPS and the load of
your equipment (b) the size of the battery used (either the standard
internal battery or external battery pack options), and (c) the state of
the battery and battery charge when the power failure occurs.
Batteries have a finite life that can be affected by excessive use and/
or high ambient temperatures. Under normal operation, you should
expect a 3-5 year life from your UPS battery.
2.2 Sizing your Load
Electrical equipment is often rated in VA (volt-amps). This
represents the rated voltage times the rated current, i.e. 230
Volts x 2 Amp = 460VA.
Check your equipment for the manufacturer’s label. This label
should state the equipment’s desired operating voltage (V) and
current (A) drawn by the equipment. The manufacturer’s label is
usually found on the external rear or underside of the equipment,
or in the handbook or operator’s manual.
M ostcom puters and theirrelated com ponents are rated at
"worstcase",with allofthe expansion slots orbays fully loaded
atlow line voltage,so youractualload is probably lessthan the
load indicated by the m anufacturer.

2.3 Types of Loads
The SOLA 610 UPS is designed to power all modern computer
equipment “loads”. The UPS output is specifically designed to
work with switching power supplies found in today's
microprocessor-based equipment.
2.4 Laser Printers and your UPS
SOLA does not recommend protecting laser printers
with this UPS. Laser printers have a heating cycle
which provides adhesion of the toner to the paper.
This heating cycle draws large amounts of electrical
current and will overload your UPS.
Most laser printers are not mission critical and can
therefore be protected with a power conditioner rather
than a UPS. Just be sure that the power conditioner
you purchase can accommodate the high inrush
currents of a laser printer. If your printer is missioncritical and you want to protect it with a UPS, the UPS
must be sized to accommodate the high peak current
surge of the printer.
2.5 Unpacking your UPS
Although the packaging for your SOLA 610 was designed
specifically for this unit and serves it well in protecting the unit
from damage, you should unpack the unit immediately
and check for signs of concealed damage that may
have occurred in transit. Concealed damage is damage
that may not be apparent by the outside appearance of
the packaging.
In case of damage, please notify the delivering carrier
at once to examine the goods, regardless of the
external condition of the boxes. Under U.S. Shipping
Regulations, damage claims must be collected by the
consignee. Once your claim is established, damaged
merchandise may be returned for repair (see Page 33
for Return Policy). Do not return shipping-damaged
merchandise until after your claim has been
established with the carrier.
Do not destroy packing material or boxes until the
carrier's agent has examined them. Save all
packaging materials in case reshipment of the UPS
is required. Any damage sustained in transit when
shipped from the user, especially in an incorrect
container, will not be covered under warranty.

2.6 UPS Locations
Your UPS should be in a controlled environment. A controlled
environment is one that is indoor, temperature-controlled and free of
conductive or semi-conductive contaminants. The SOLA 610 is
intended for indoor use only. There should be adequate ventilation and
the location should be free of dust and fumes. Do not install the unit next
to open windows where uncontrolled environmental conditions could
affect the unit. Do not install the unit in any type of enclosure without first
calling SOLA Technical Support. The unit must have unrestricted air flow.
CAUTION
The environmental specifications shown in Table 1
(below) show the temperature and humidity limits of
the UPS. Do not exceed these limits.

2.7 Recharging the UPS Battery
To optimise the performance of your UPS we
recommend you ensure the battery is fully charged
before you use the UPS to support your critical load.
To recharge the battery, place the UPS close to a wall
outlet and connect the matching line cord to the UPS
receptacle then plug it into the wall socket. For units
that have hardwired connections, have your electrical
contractor install the UPS wiring.
When power is supplied to the UPS (without operating
any front panel switches), the UPS will go through a
short test sequence, and the cooling fan will start.
On the front panel the line indicator
and the
bypass indicator
will illuminate. At this time there
is power available at the output sockets.

2.7 Recharging the UPS Battery (cont.)
Note
The battery backup feature of the UPS is
not available in this mode. See 3.1
“Switching on the UPS”to enable the
battery backup mode.
?
In this mode, (and normal UPS operating mode) recharging
occurs automatically and will take 10 hours if the batteries are
completely discharged. As UPS units are normally delivered with
charged batteries, providing the UPS has not been in storage for
a long time, it will not take long for the battery to reach full
capacity.
!
CAUTION
IN ALL CONDITIONS, if the UPS is connected
to a live supply, AC POWER IS PRESENT AT
THE UPS RECEPTACLES (or output terminals)
The front panel OFF/ON does NOT control the
delivery of power to the output receptacles.
2.8 External Battery Connection
All units, excluding the 700VA model, can be fitted
with an external battery option to increase the
autonomy when the UPS is operating during a mains
failure. Refer Section 4.1 for selection of external
battery options for your specific UPS.
On the rear of each of the UPS units 1-3kVA capacity
you will find an external battery receptacle. If you
have purchased an external battery option, it will be
supplied with an interconnecting cable to connect into
this receptacle. Use only the matching battery option
for your UPS rating. Using the incorrect battery option
may cause damage to your UPS system. Once
connected, your UPS will maintain the charge in the
external battery providing the utility mains is available.

2.9 Setting up the UPS Monitoring from your Computer
Your UPS is fitted with a DB9 communications
connector on the rear panel. From this connector,
you can access opto coupled outputs indicating
mains failure or low battery.
Alternatively, RS232 serial communications is
available. This RS232 provides a proprietary
command sequence for the computer to monitor the
utility and the UPS status and to control the UPS
output. The data format of the RS232 is 2400bps, 8
bit data, 1 stop bit and no parity.
The battery test mode is also available through the RS232
command sequence whilst the UPS is operating and the
power is normal. During the test, the 4 LED’s (line, bypass,
battery and inverter) will light alternatively until the test is
completed.
DB9
Each UPS is supplied with a package of CHECKUPS II®
Advanced UPS communications software. This package
includes the correct interconnection cable for your SOLA 610
UPS. If your computer does not have a DB9 connector on
the serial port, use a standard DB9-DB25 adaptor, available
at most computer accessory stores. The CD-ROM provided
with your UPS includes software for many standard operating
systems and detailed manuals in Adobe Acrobat format. All
utilities required to read and/or print the manuals are included
on the CD-ROM. Refer to section 4.2 & 4.3 for more details

Inverter
After completing the installation and battery
recharge, switch on the UPS by pressing the front
panel switch ‘I’. The unit will now commence a
system check sequence before establishing it’s
own inverter power.
Firstly, all the Load Level LEDs will illuminate
together then one by one. Within a few seconds the
Inverter indicator will illuminate, indicating the
inverter has now started and the bypass indicator
will extinguish indicating that the UPS is now in
normal mode.
120V Models only - If during the test sequence the
Line indicator flashes instead of remaining
constant, you have a wiring fault and the line and
neutral conductors are reversed.
If the Line indicator flashes and the battery
indicator illuminates at the same time, your
incoming utility AC source voltage and/or frequency
is out of the UPS specification. The UPS is drawing
energy from the batteries.
Battery
You may now start the critical equipment that you
connected to the UPS. If the load level indicator
exceeds 100% and the audible alarm sounds twice
per second, you have plugged too many items into
the UPS and overloaded it. Remove the non critical
items and check the load level indicators.

3.2 When the Power Fails
Inverter
Battery
When the utility AC source fails, the UPS will
continue to deliver output to the UPS receptacle
from the internal or external batteries and the UPS
inverter. When this occurs, an audible alarm will
sound every 4 seconds and the “line”indicator will
extinguish. The battery indicator will be illuminated
to show that the battery is now being discharged.
The audible alarm can be silenced by pressing the
“I”push button on the front panel. If the battery
continues to discharge until the low battery charge
point is reached, the audible alarm will sound
again. At any time, the audible alarm can be
reactivated by pressing the “on”switch on the front
panel.

5.1 Storage
The UPS must be kept at reasonable temperatures to obtain
maximum battery life (15o to 21o C is ideal).
Note
?
The unit MUST be recharged every 6 months
to recharge its internal batteries. The unit
must be recharged more frequently if it is
stored above 35oC (95oF) to obtain maximum
battery life. This is accomplished by simply
plugging the unit into AC power for 10 hours.
The warranty on this product will be affected if the unit is
improperly stored.
5.2 Maintenance and Cleaning
Your SOLA 610 UPS requires little or no maintenance.
Occasionally, the input and output connections should be
inspected for signs of damage and repaired if necessary.
If you would like to clean the unit, first remove all power to the
unit by turning OFF the unit at the System On/Off switch
and unplugging the unit from the wall outlet, or
disconnecting the supply at the distribution board for
hardwired models.
If the unit is operating in an unusually dusty or dirty area,
carefully vacuum any dust from the input vents, as well as the
chassis holes located on the sides of the UPS.
WARNING
Clean only the external surfaces of the unit.
Use a cloth dampened (not soaking) with
water only. Allow the unit to completely dry
before returning the unit to service.

5.5 Warranty
Australia ONLY
This Warranty is subject to Sola's standard Conditions of Sale which govern all sales of products by Sola
Australia Ltd.
1.
Sola products, in general, are warranted against failure due to faulty materials and/or workmanship for a
period of one year from despatch date (ex Sola store) as per invoice. The Ferroresonant and 95 Series
Power Conditioners have an extended warranty - 3 years from date of despatch. Sola Dry Type
Transformers also have an extended warranty - 5 years from date of despatch. The Sola 310, 510, 600,
610 and the Sola 700 UPS have an extended warranty - 2 years from date of despatch.
2.
If, within the applicable Warranty period, any Sola product does not meet the warranty specified above,
and the product was installed and operated in accordance with Australian standards and Sola standard
installation procedures, Sola shall thereupon correct any defects due to faulty materials and/or
workmanship.
3.
Any modification made to the product other than those made by Sola or its authorised representative may
cause the Warranty to be void.
4.
For units up to 3kVA that are installed as a portable device, the Warranty covers repair or replacement of
defective parts at the factory, or other service locations as nominated by Sola Australia, provided the unit
has been returned by the user packed adequately to prevent shipping damage, and covered by a formal
Return Authorisation (RA) Number issued by Sola Australia Service. All costs associated with the return of
the product to Sola Australia are at the customer's expense.
For hardwired products 3kVA and above, the Warranty covers on site repair (Metropolitan area, Capital
Cities only) by Sola technicians or appointed agents. For units installed in remote locations, Sola Australia
may, at its discretion, request the equipment to be recovered and returned to the factory or other
nominated service locations. In this case, it is the customer's responsibility to pack the equipment
adequately to prevent shipping damages and pay freight charges to the location nominated by Sola
Australia. A formal Return Authorisation (RA) Number is required from Sola Australia Service before the
goods are despatched.
5.
Units returned for in-warranty repairs, which are found not to be defective, will be subject to an inspection
and handling charge, plus transportation charges.
6.
High grade batteries, designed for Uninterruptible Power Supply (UPS) applications, are supplied by Sola
for use with Sola UPS equipment. These batteries have a finite life expectancy depending on a number of
variables, including rate of discharge, depth of discharge, operating temperature, etc.
7.
Providing that the batteries are used within the limits as set out in Sola Operating Manuals, they are
guaranteed for one year, from despatch date as per invoice. Batteries that are integral to a UPS are
covered by the same guarantee as the UPS.
8.
Sola reserves the right to charge for replacement batteries if within the guarantee period replacement
batteries are necessary as a result of misuse or misapplication by the purchaser or end user.
