Safety
Warnings, continued
•
Avoid any contact with gelled or liquid emissions from a valve-regulated lead-acid
(VRLA) battery. Emissions contain dilute sulfuric acid which is harmful to the skin and
eyes. Emissions are electrolytic, which are electrically conductive and are corrosive.
Follow the Chemical Hazards notes if contact occurs.
•
•
Do not smoke or introduce sparks in the vicinity of a battery.
Under certain overcharging conditions, lead-acid batteries can vent a mixture of
hydrogen gas which is explosive. Proper venting of the enclosure is required.
•
Follow the battery manufacturer’s approved transportation and storage instructions.
Cautions
NOTE: Equipment or parts may be damaged or cause damage if used or
installed improperly.
To avoid damage:

•
•
•
•
•
•
Prior to installation, verify that the AC input voltage to the enclosure and its equipment
match with respect to voltage and frequency.
Prior to installation, verify that the output voltage from the enclosure or its equipment
match the voltage requirements of the connected equipment (load).
Prior to installation, verify that the enclosure’s utility service panel is equipped with a
properly rated circuit breaker for use with the equipment inside. Refer to manufacturer’s
recommendations.
Review and upgrade utility service panel circuit breaker requirements whenever the
equipment within the enclosure is changed.
Prior to installation, contact local utilities, local building maintenance departments, and
cable/piping locator services to ensure that installation does not interfere with existing
utility or building cables/piping.
Do not exceed the output rating of equipment. Verify load requirements prior and during

3.1
Important Troubleshooting Notes
Always troubleshoot communication problems before working on battery-related and/or generatorrelated problems. The embedded transponder runs off of the power supply’s USM2.5 logic voltages,
and does not require the sensing cables (from the batteries or the generator) to communicate.
1. USM2.5 Switch Set-up: The 8 position “DIP” switch on the USM2.5 board must be set correctly.
See the complete chart in the USM2.5 Status Monitor Operator’s and Technical Manual P/N
704-683-B0-xxx. Note that SW1-4 (the fourth switch from the front) must be turned ON when
using an internal Acterna transponder.

2. Transponder Address: The transponder address is the five (5) digit number printed on the sticker
on the FRONT of the Embedded Transponder Assembly, above the “F” connector. The address
is not the printed circuit board serial number (typically in the format of 1B followed by six
numbers) from the sticker on the PCB itself. The address can be verified from the SOC (Systems Operation Center).
3. Transponder Driver: The correct Acterna device driver must be downloaded from the HEC to the
transponder. The following is Acterna’s list of device drivers for embedded (internal) transponders
in Alpha Technologies XM2 power supplies, as of 17 October 2002.

3. Troubleshooting
3.1
Important Troubleshooting Notes, continued
If there are two power supplies in the same enclosure, make sure that the interface cable from
the generator ECM is connected to the correct embedded transponder.
4. Battery Voltage Jumper: Verify that the battery voltage jumper block is in the correct position:
• The jumper will be installed in the bottom position for 36VDC battery systems (shorting the
bottom two rows of pins, and with the top row of pins exposed)
• The jumper will be installed in the top position for 48VDC battery systems (shorting the top
two rows of pins, and with the bottom row of pins exposed).
Use extreme care when removing the jumper – lift the jumper only, don’t pry the pin assembly
off the PC board.
5. Battery Voltage Sensing: Verify the battery sensing cables are connected correctly – battery
polarity is critical. The battery numbering / labeling conforms to the requirements of the SCTE
HMS standard. (Refer to section 1.3, Battery Monitor Connections.) The battery numbering
shown in Acterna’s CheetahNet display will be as listed in the manual.
• Each string is labeled A, B, C, or D, shown as “x” below. Not all battery sensing wires will
be present in all harnesses. For example, in a 2 string system, there may only be one
NEG wire - connect to either string’s battery # 1 negative post.
