Important Safety Instructions
!
WARNING
Risk of electrical shock. Can cause personal injury and death.
Check for voltage with both AC and DC voltmeters before working within the UPS. Check for voltage with
both AC and DC voltmeters before making contact.
Only properly trained and qualified personnel wearing appropriate safety headgear, gloves, shoes and
glasses should be involved in installing the UPS or preparing the UPS for installation. When performing
maintenance with any part of the equipment under power, service personnel and test equipment should
be standing on rubber mats.
Lead-acid batteries contain hazardous materials. Batteries must be handled, transported and recycled or
discarded in accordance with federal, state and local regulations. Because lead is a toxic substance, leadacid batteries must be recycled rather than discarded.
Do not dispose of battery or batteries in a fire. The battery may explode.
Do not open or mutilate the battery or batteries. Released electrolyte is harmful to the skin and eyes. It is
toxic.
The following precautions must be observed when working on batteries:
• Remove watches, rings and other metal objects.
• Use tools with insulated handles.
• Wear rubber gloves and boots.
• Do not lay tools or metal parts on top of batteries.
• Disconnect charging source prior to connecting or disconnecting battery terminals.
• Determine whether the battery is grounded. If it is grounded, remove source of ground.
Contact with any part of a grounded battery can result in electrical shock. The likelihood of such shock
will be reduced if such grounds are removed during installation and maintenance.
!
AVERTISSEMENT
Risque de décharge électrique pouvant causer des blessures graves, voire mortelles.
Vérifiez les tensions au moyen de voltmètres c.a. et c.c. avant d’utiliser le système ASC. Vérifiez les
tensions avec des voltmètres c.a. et c.c. avant d'établir tout contact.
Seuls des employés qualifiés et dûment formés portant un casque, des gants, des chaussures et des
lunettes de écurité adéquats doivent se charger d’installer le système ASC ou de le préparer pour
l’installation. Les responsables de l'entretien et l’équipement d’essai doivent reposer sur des tapis de
caoutchouc lors de toute intervention sur une pièce d’équipement sous tension.
Les batteries au plomb-acide renferment des matières dangereuses. Les batteries doivent être
manipulées, transportées, recyclées ou jetées conformément aux règlements fédéraux, provinciaux et
municipaux. Étant donné que le plomb est une substance toxique, les batteries au plomb-acide doivent
être recyclées plutôt que mises au rebut.
Ne jetez jamais de batteries au feu car elles risquent d’exploser.
Vous ne devez ni ouvrir ni percer les batteries, car l’électrolyte qui s'en écoulerait est nocif pour la peau et
les yeux. Cet électrolyte est toxique.
Lorsque vous travaillez avec des batteries, prenez les précautions suivantes :
• Retirez montre, bagues et tout autre objet métallique.
• Utilisez des outils dont le manche est isolé.
• Portez des gants et des bottes de caoutchouc.
• Ne posez aucun outil ni pièce métallique sur le dessus d’une batterie.
• Déconnectez la source de chargement avant de brancher ou de débrancher les bornes d’une
batterie.
• Vérifiez si la batterie est mise à la terre. Le cas échéant, éliminez la cause de la mise à la terre.
Le contact avec toute partie d'une batterie mise à la terre peut provoquer une décharge électrique. Pour
réduire de tels risques d'accident, débranchez les prises de terre avant de procéder à l’installation ou à
l'entretien.

for use in fighting electrical fires.
!
AVERTISSEMENT
Risque de décharge électrique pouvant causer des blessures graves, voire mortelles.
En cas d’incendie associé à du matériel électrique, n'utilisez que des extincteurs à dioxyde de carbone ou
homologués pour la lutte contre les incendies d’origine électrique.
!
WARNING
Risk of heavy unit falling over. Improper handling can cause equipment damage, injury or death.
Exercise extreme care when handling battery cabinets to avoid equipment damage or injury to personnel.
The battery system cabinets weigh from 881 to 3341 lb. (400 to 1515kg).
Locate center of gravity symbols
and determine unit weight before handling each cabinet. Test lift
and balance the cabinets before transporting. Maintain minimum tilt from vertical at all times.
Slots at the base of the module cabinets are intended for forklift use. Base slots will support the unit only
if the forks are completely beneath the unit.
Read all of the following instructions before attempting to move, lift, or remove packaging from unit, or
prepare unit for installation.
!
AVERTISSEMENT
Le centre de gravité élevé de l’appareil présente un risque de renversement. Une mauvaise manutention
peut entraîner des dommages matériels, des blessures et même la mort.
Faites preuve d'une extrême prudence lors de la manutention des armoires ASC afin d’éviter de les
endommager ou de blesser le personnel. Le poids du module ASC varie entre 400 et 1 515 kg (881 et
3341 lb).

Only test equipment designed for troubleshooting should be used. This is particularly true for
oscilloscopes. Always check with an AC and DC voltmeter to ensure safety before making contact or
using tools. Even when the power is turned Off, dangerously high potential electric charges may exist at
the capacitor banks and at the DC connections.
All wiring must be installed by a properly trained and qualified electrician. All power and control wiring
must comply with all applicable national, state and local codes.
One person should never work alone, even if all power is disconnected from the equipment. A second
person should be standing by to assist and to summon help in case of an accident.

1.1
INTRODUCTION
This following section describes the requirements that must be taken into account when planning the
positioning and cabling of the Liebert EXM battery equipment.
This chapter is a guide to general procedures and practices that should be observed by the installing engineer.
The particular conditions of each site will determine the applicability of such procedures.
NOTICE
Risk of improper startup. Can cause equipment damage.
Do not apply electrical power to the UPS equipment before the arrival of the commissioning engineer.
1.2
SYSTEM COMPOSITION
A battery system can consist of a number of equipment cabinets, depending on the individual system design
requirements, e.g., Battery Cabinet. Refer to 3.0 - Installation Drawings for positioning the cabinets.
1.3
PRELIMINARY CHECKS
Before installing the battery equipment, carry out the following preliminary checks:
• Remove all panels and visually inspect the cabinet, batteries, bus connections and cabinet for any shipping damage.
Exercise caution; voltage is present within the battery cabinet even before installation. If there are signs of damage, do not
proceed. Call Liebert Services at 1-800-542-2378.
• Report any damage to the shipper immediately.
• Verify that the correct equipment is being installed. The equipment supplied has an identification tag inside the main door.
• Verify that the battery room satisfies the environmental conditions stipulated in the equipment specification, paying
particular attention to the ambient temperature and air exchange system.
1.4
ENVIRONMENTAL CONSIDERATIONS
1.4.1 Battery Room
Batteries should be installed in an environment where the temperature is consistent and even over the whole
battery. Temperature is a major factor in determining the battery life and capacity. Typical battery manufacturer
performance data are quoted for an operating temperature between 68°F and 77°F (20 and 25°C). Operating
above this range will reduce the battery life while operation below this range will reduce the battery capacity.
Battery Temperature—In a normal installation, the battery temperature should be kept between 59 and 77°F
(15°C and 25°C).
NOTE
Keep batteries away from main heat sources, main air inlets, etc.
Vertiv

Mechanical Installation
1.4.2 Storing Batteries for Delayed Installation
If the battery system will not be installed immediately, it must be stored indoors in a clean, dry and cool location.
Batteries should be unpacked, installed and charged as soon as possible after delivery.
NOTICE
Risk of failure to properly charge batteries. Can cause permanent damage to the batteries and void the warranty.
Batteries will self-discharge during storage. Batteries must be recharged as recommended by the battery manufacturer.
A notice of “Charge Before Date” is affixed to each unit that has batteries inside. The “Charge Before Date” is calculated
based on the batteries being stored at 77°F (25°C). Storage at a higher temperature will increase the rate of self-discharge,
requiring earlier recharge. Consult the battery manufacturer on how to determine when the batteries need to be
recharged.
1.4.3 Installation Considerations
Position—Refer to UPS manual (SL-25648 for 10-40kVA units, SL-25650 for 60-100kVA units or SL-26100 for
120-200kVA units) or submittals for complete system line-up details.
Liebert EXM Battery Cabinet(s) are designed to be located next to each UPS module on the left side only and
are also available in stand-alone configurations with painted side panels. The front access design eliminates side
and rear service clearance requirements. Refer to Tables 16 through 18 for battery cabinet dimensions and
weights.
Bolt-On Cabinets—Matching battery cabinets are designed to bolt only onto the left side of the UPS module
cabinet. Use bolts that ship with each unit to connect cabinet frames at posts, two places in the front and two
places in the rear.
Service Clearance—Allow front access to the battery cabinet at all times for maintenance and service. Electrical
codes require that the battery cabinet be installed with no less than 3 ft. (1m) of clearance at the front of the
cabinet when operating. No service clearance is required on either the side or rear. Clearance at the top of the
cabinet is 24" (610mm).
Cables (10-120kVA units)—Cables may be run between the cabinets through cutouts in the top of the cabinet,
eliminating the need for external conduit runs. Route cables before moving cabinets into final position for bolting
together. No top or bottom entry cables are required, except for remotely located cabinets which require
conduits.
Power terminals, auxiliary terminals blocks and circuit breakers are accessed from the front and top.
Removable panels on the top are secured to the chassis by screws. The door can be opened to give access to the power
connections bars, auxiliary terminal blocks and breakers. The front door can be opened 180° for easier service and more
flexibility in installation.
Software—To allow the UPS to accurately display the battery run time, the number of battery cabinets must be
noted when performing initial startup and setup using the configuration software. This is to be performed by the
Liebert Services engineer when commissioning the unit.
Casters and Adjustable Stops—The adjustable stops are not designed to bear the full weight of the cabinet.
Lower the stops until they are finger-tight in contact with the floor. Then tighten a small amount with a wrench
(less than two turns) to give a good friction fit. When mounting the battery cabinet on seismic stands, ensure
that the casters are bearing the weight of the cabinet.

1.5
MOVING THE BATTERY CABINETS
The battery cabinets should be moved with a forklift or similar equipment. The battery cabinet has casters for
movement over short distances. The bottoms of the battery cabinets are reinforced to permit lifting by forklift to
move them longer distances. The bottom structure will support the unit only if the forks are completely beneath
the unit.
The route between the point of arrival and the unit’s installation location must be planned to make sure that all
passages are wide enough for the unit and that floors will support its weight (for instance, check that doorways,
lifts, ramps, etc., are big enough and that there are no impassable corners or changes in the level of corridors).
Ensure that the cabinet weight is within the designated surface weight loading (kg/cm2) of any handling
equipment. See Tables 16 through 18 for weight details.
Ensure that any lifting equipment used to move the battery equipment has sufficient lifting capacity.
Because the weight distribution in the cabinet is not symmetrical, use extreme care during handling and
transporting.
When moving the unit by forklift, care must be taken to protect the panels.
Handling the unit with straps is not authorized.
!
WARNING
Risk of heavy unit falling over. Improper handling can cause equipment damage, injury or death.
Exercise extreme care when handling battery cabinets to avoid equipment damage or injury to personnel.
The battery system cabinets weigh from 881 to 3341 lb. (400 to 1515kg).
Locate center of gravity symbols
and determine the unit’s weight before handling a cabinet. Test lift
and balance the cabinets before moving them. Maintain minimum tilt from vertical at all times.
Read all of the following instructions before attempting to move, lift, or remove packaging from unit, or
prepare unit for installation.
!
AVERTISSEMENT
Le centre de gravité élevé de l’appareil présente un risque de renversement. Une mauvaise manutention
peut entraîner des dommages matériels, des blessures et même la mort.
Faites preuve d'une extrême prudence lors de la manutention des armoires ASC afin d’éviter de les
endommager ou de blesser le personnel. Le poids du module ASC varie entre 400 et 1 515 kg (881 et
3341 lb).
Identifiez les symboles de centre de gravité
et déterminez le poids de l'appareil avant de manipuler
chaque armoire. Testez le levage et l’équilibre des armoires avant de transporter l'appareil. Maintenez en

SAFETY
Special care should be taken when working with the batteries associated with the Liebert EXM Battery System
equipment. When all the cells are connected together, the battery terminal voltage will exceed 288VDC and is
potentially lethal. A primary safety consideration is to install the battery equipment in an isolated area, accessible
only to properly trained and qualified maintenance personnel.
!
WARNING
Risk of electrical shock and fire. Can cause equipment damage, personal injury or death.
Servicing of batteries should be performed or supervised by personnel knowledgeable of batteries and
the required precautions. Keep unauthorized personnel away from batteries.
!
AVERTISSEMENT
Risque de décharge électrique et d’incendie. Pouvant entraîner des dommages matériels, des blessures
et même la mort.
Le remplacement des batteries doit être effectué ou supervisé par des membres du personnel dotés des
compétences requises et connaissant les précautions à prendre. Le personnel non autorisé ne doit pas
avoir accès aux batteries.
Lead-acid batteries can present a risk of fire because they generate hydrogen gas. In addition, the electrical
connections must be protected against accidental short circuits which can cause sparks. The following
procedures should be followed:
•
•
•
•
DO NOT SMOKE when near batteries.
DO NOT cause flame or spark in battery area.
Discharge static electricity from body before touching batteries by first touching a grounded metal surface.
After replacing battery jars in a battery cabinet, replace the retaining straps that hold the jars in place on the shelves. This
will limit accidental movement of the jars and connectors should the cabinet ever need to be repositioned or relocated.
Regular maintenance of the battery module is an absolute necessity. Periodic inspections of battery and terminal
voltages, specific gravity and connection resistance should be made. Strictly follow the procedures outlined in
the battery manufacturer’s manual, available on the manufacturer’s Web site.
Valve-regulated lead-acid (sealed-cell) batteries do require periodic maintenance. Although maintenance of
electrolyte levels is not required, visual inspections and checks of battery voltage and connection resistance
should be made.
NOTICE
Risk of equipment damage. Batteries should be cleaned with a dry cloth or a cloth lightly moistened with water. Do not use
cleaners on the batteries. Solvents can make the battery cases brittle.
Because individual battery characteristics are not identical and may change over time, the UPS module is
equipped with circuitry to equalize battery cell voltages. This circuit increases charging voltage to maintain
flooded type battery cells at full capacity.
!
WARNING
Risk of electric shock, explosive reaction, hazardous chemicals and fire. Can cause equipment damage,
personal injury and death.
Do not use equalize charging with valve-regulated, lead-acid batteries, such as those in Liebert Battery
Cabinets. Refer to the battery manufacturer’s manual, available on the manufacturer’s Web site, for
specific information about equalize charging.

Battery Installation
Matching Battery Cabinets—Optional
Although the individual battery cells are sealed (valve-regulated) and require only minimal maintenance, the
Battery Cabinets should be given a periodic inspection and electrical check. Checks should be performed at
least annually to ensure years of trouble-free service.
Voltage Records: With the Battery Cabinet DC circuit breaker closed and the connected UPS operating,
measure and record battery float voltage. With the DC circuit breaker open, measure and record the nominal
(open circuit) voltage. Both these measurements should be made across the final positive and negative terminal
lugs. Compare these values with those shown below. The recorded nominal voltage should be no less than the
value shown; while the recorded float voltage should be within the range shown. If a discrepancy is found,
contact Liebert Services.

Power Connections: Check for corrosion and connection integrity. Inspect wiring for discolored or cracked
insulation. Clean and/or tighten as required. Refer to torque specifications in Table 21.
Battery Cell Terminals: Check for discoloration, corrosion and connection integrity. Clean and tighten if
necessary. Note that when installing a new battery, the initial torque value is 5 lb.-in. more than the retorque
value. Table 21 shows battery retorque values. All batteries are supplied with tab washers for easier connection
to the Alber BDSUi™ or other monitoring equipment.
If the system uses a different model battery, contact Liebert Services for the required torque value.
To access battery cell terminals, disconnect the inter-tier cable and two shelf retaining screws. Once
disconnected, insulate (with protective boot or electrical tape) the cables to prevent accidental shorts. The
battery shelf can now be pulled out. Tighten each terminal connection to the retorque value. When replacing a
battery, the terminal connections must be cleaned and tightened. Disconnect and insulate the cables connected
to the battery. Secure each battery shelf with retaining screws when maintenance is complete.
!
WARNING
Risk of heavy unit tipping over while being moved. Can cause property damage, injury and death.
The 320mm Liebert EXM Battery Cabinet must be moved into position with shipping brackets in place to
provide side-to-side stabilization. The brackets may be removed after the battery cabinet is bolted to the
Liebert EXM UPS.
The casters are strong enough for movement across even surfaces only. Casters may fail if they are
subjected to shock loading, such as being dropped or rolled over holes in the floor or obstructions. Such
failure may cause the unit to tip over, injuring personnel and damaging the equipment.
!
AVERTISSEMENT
Le centre de gravité élevé de l'appareil présente un risque de renversement lors des déplacements, peut
entraîner des dommages matériels, des blessures et même la mort.
Les roulettes sont suffisamment résistantes pour le déplacement sur des surfaces planes uniquement.
Les roulettes peuvent être endommagées si vous les soumettez à des impacts, notamment en cas de
chute ou de passage sur des obstacles ou trous dans le plancher. Une telle défaillance peut causer le
renversement de l'appareil, qui risque de blesser le personnel et d'endommager l'équipement.
When replacing batteries, use the same number and type of batteries.

WARNING
Risk of electrical shock. Can cause personal injury and death.
Check for voltage with both AC and DC voltmeters before working within the UPS. Check for voltage with
both AC and DC voltmeters before making contact.
Only properly trained and qualified personnel wearing appropriate safety headgear, gloves, shoes and
glasses should be involved in installing the UPS or preparing the UPS for installation. When performing
maintenance with any part of the equipment under power, service personnel and test equipment should
be standing on rubber mats.
Lead-acid batteries contain hazardous materials. Batteries must be handled, transported and recycled or
discarded in accordance with federal, state and local regulations. Because lead is a toxic substance, leadacid batteries must be recycled rather than discarded.
Do not dispose of battery or batteries in a fire. The battery may explode.
Do not open or mutilate the battery or batteries. Released electrolyte is harmful to the skin and eyes. It is
toxic.
The following precautions must be observed when working on batteries:
• Remove watches, rings and other metal objects.
• Use tools with insulated handles.
• Wear rubber gloves and boots.
• Do not lay tools or metal parts on top of batteries.
• Disconnect charging source prior to connecting or disconnecting battery terminals.
• Determine whether the battery is grounded. If it is grounded, remove source of ground.
Contact with any part of a grounded battery can result in electrical shock. The likelihood of such shock
will be reduced if such grounds are removed during installation and maintenance.
!
AVERTISSEMENT
Risque de décharge électrique pouvant causer des blessures graves, voire mortelles.
Vérifiez les tensions au moyen de voltmètres c.a. et c.c. avant d'utiliser le système ASC. Vérifiez les
tensions avec des voltmètres c.a. et c.c. avant d'établir tout contact.
Seuls des employés qualifiés et dûment formés portant un casque, des gants, des chaussures et des
lunettes de écurité adéquats doivent se charger d’installer le système ASC ou de le préparer pour
l'installation. Les responsables de l'entretien et l’équipement d’essai doivent reposer sur des tapis de
caoutchouc lors de toute intervention sur une pièce d’équipement sous tension.
Les batteries au plomb-acide renferment des matières dangereuses. Les batteries doivent être
manipulées, transportées, recyclées ou jetées conformément aux règlements fédéraux, provinciaux et
municipaux. Étant donné que le plomb est une substance toxique, les batteries au plomb-acide doivent
être recyclées plutôt que mises au rebut.
Ne jetez jamais de batteries au feu car elles risquent d’exploser.
Vous ne devez ni ouvrir ni percer les batteries, car l'électrolyte qui s'en écoulerait est nocif pour la peau et
les yeux. Cet électrolyte est toxique.
Lorsque vous travaillez avec des batteries, prenez les précautions suivantes :
• Retirez montre, bagues et tout autre objet métallique.
• Utilisez des outils dont le manche est isolé.
• Portez des gants et des bottes de caoutchouc.
• Ne posez aucun outil ni pièce métallique sur le dessus d’une batterie.
• Déconnectez la source de chargement avant de brancher ou de débrancher les bornes d’une
batterie.
• Vérifiez si la batterie est mise à la terre. Le cas échéant, éliminez la cause de la mise à la terre.
Le contact avec toute partie d'une batterie mise à la terre peut provoquer une décharge électrique. Pour
réduire de tels risques d'accident, débranchez les prises de terre avant de procéder à l’installation ou à
l'entretien.

ALBER BDSUI™ BATTERY MONITORING SYSTEM—OPTIONAL
UXBM/50
UXCM
The matching Liebert battery cabinets allow installing an optional Alber BDSUi battery monitoring system inside
the cabinet. The Alber BDSUi by Vertiv continuously checks all critical battery parameters, such as cell voltage,
overall string voltage, current and temperature. Automatic periodic tests of internal resistance of each battery
will verify the battery's operating integrity. Additional capabilities include automatic internal DC resistance tests
and trend analysis providing the ability to analyze performance and aid in troubleshooting.
The Alber BDSUi system is installed inside the battery cabinet as shown in Figures 14, 15 and 16. The monitoring
system power inlet is wired to the Alber BDSUi fuse block on the UPS (see Figures 10 and 12). The Alber BDSUi
fuse block supplies 120VAC and has an 8A fuse.
If required, power can be supplied from the output terminals of the UPS, a distribution panel or another
UPS-protected source.
For details about operating the Alber system, refer to the Alber unit’s documentation, available at
http://www.alber.com/

Battery Installation
2.9.1 Accessory Fuses and Back-Feed Breaker Wiring
Two fuse blocks provide power for the back-feed breakers (standard) and the Alber® BDSUi (optional). The fuse
blocks are at the lower right of the I/O panel on the front of the Liebert EXM UPS. See Figure 13 for fuse-holder
locations.
The back-feed breaker fuse block provides 120V nominal provided from the UPS output (L-N) and the fuse is
rated for 8 amps. The back-feed breaker wiring is on the bypass static switch assembly.
The Liebert EXM UPS does not include internal back-feed protection. A shunt trip coil of 120V must be installed
in the bypass input breaker if the system does not include a Liebert Bypass Cabinet. This is a safety feature and
will prevent the UPS inverter from back-feeding the bypass source.
The Alber BDSUi fuse block provides 208V nominal from the UPS output (L-N) and the fuse is rated at 8A. See
Figure 12 for the Alber BDSUi power wiring.

5.0 MAINTENANCE
Become thoroughly familiar with the equipment, but at no time go beyond the specific procedures in this manual
while performing maintenance or correcting a malfunction. If you have any doubt as to what must be done, call
Vertiv® Liebert Services at 1-800-LIEBERT for further instructions. The UPS is designed for unattended operation, but does require some common sense maintenance.
• Keep good records—Troubleshooting is easier if you maintain historical service records.
• Keep the UPS free of dust and any moisture.
• Keep the UPS cool:
• Battery systems must be kept in the range of 72-77°F (22-25°C) in order to meet design specifications for capacity and
longevity.
• The UPS will reliably meet all performance specifications at temperatures up to 104°F (40°C), and can be slightly derated
for operation at even higher temperatures. However, performance and longevity will be optimized when the UPS is
operated at the same temperature as the batteries.
• Keep connections tight.
• Tighten all connections at installation and at least annually thereafter. (See 5.4 - Torque Requirements).
5.1
RECORD LOG
Set up a maintenance log to record scheduled checks and any abnormal conditions.
The log should have space for all metered data including phase readings, alarm messages, UPS mode of
operation, air filter replacement date and observation notes. A second log should be maintained for the battery
module as directed by the battery manufacturer.
Vertiv recommends a periodic walk-through inspection of the UPS and battery rooms to check for visible and
audible indications of problems. Log the inspection, metered parameter indications and any discrepancies.

5.3
BATTERY SAFETY PRECAUTIONS
Servicing of batteries should be performed or supervised by personnel experienced with batteries and the
required precautions. Keep unauthorized personnel away from batteries.
When replacing batteries, use the same number and type of batteries.
!
WARNING
Risk of electrical shock. Can cause personal injury and death.
Check for voltage with both AC and DC voltmeters before working within the UPS. Check for voltage with
both AC and DC voltmeters before making contact.
Only properly trained and qualified personnel wearing appropriate safety headgear, gloves, shoes and
glasses should be involved in installing the UPS or preparing the UPS for installation. When performing
maintenance with any part of the equipment under power, service personnel and test equipment should
be standing on rubber mats.
Lead-acid batteries contain hazardous materials. Batteries must be handled, transported and recycled or
discarded in accordance with federal, state and local regulations. Because lead is a toxic substance, leadacid batteries must be recycled rather than discarded.
Do not dispose of battery or batteries in a fire. The battery may explode.
Do not open or mutilate the battery or batteries. Released electrolyte is harmful to the skin and eyes. It is
toxic.
The following precautions must be observed when working on batteries:
• Remove watches, rings and other metal objects.
• Use tools with insulated handles.
• Wear rubber gloves and boots.
• Do not lay tools or metal parts on top of batteries.
• Disconnect charging source prior to connecting or disconnecting battery terminals.
• Determine whether the battery is grounded. If it is grounded, remove source of ground.
Contact with any part of a grounded battery can result in electrical shock. The likelihood of such shock
will be reduced if such grounds are removed during installation and maintenance.

AVERTISSEMENT
Risque de décharge électrique pouvant causer des blessures graves, voire mortelles.
Vérifiez les tensions au moyen de voltmètres c.a. et c.c. avant d'utiliser le système ASC. Vérifiez les
tensions avec des voltmètres c.a. et c.c. avant d'établir tout contact.
Seuls des employés qualifiés et dûment formés portant un casque, des gants, des chaussures et des
lunettes de écurité adéquats doivent se charger d’installer le système ASC ou de le préparer pour
l'installation. Les responsables de l'entretien et l’équipement d’essai doivent reposer sur des tapis de
caoutchouc lors de toute intervention sur une pièce d’équipement sous tension.
Les batteries au plomb-acide renferment des matières dangereuses. Les batteries doivent être
manipulées, transportées, recyclées ou jetées conformément aux règlements fédéraux, provinciaux et
municipaux. Étant donné que le plomb est une substance toxique, les batteries au plomb-acide doivent
être recyclées plutôt que mises au rebut.
Ne jetez jamais de batteries au feu car elles risquent d’exploser.
Vous ne devez ni ouvrir ni percer les batteries, car l'électrolyte qui s'en écoulerait est nocif pour la peau et
les yeux. Cet électrolyte est toxique.
Lorsque vous travaillez avec des batteries, prenez les précautions suivantes :
• Retirez montre, bagues et tout autre objet métallique.
• Utilisez des outils dont le manche est isolé.
• Portez des gants et des bottes de caoutchouc.
• Ne posez aucun outil ni pièce métallique sur le dessus d’une batterie.
• Déconnectez la source de chargement avant de brancher ou de débrancher les bornes d’une
batterie.
• Vérifiez si la batterie est mise à la terre. Le cas échéant, éliminez la cause de la mise à la terre.
Le contact avec toute partie d'une batterie mise à la terre peut provoquer une décharge électrique. Pour
réduire de tels risques d'accident, débranchez les prises de terre avant de procéder à l’installation ou à
l'entretien.
Regular maintenance of the battery module is an absolute necessity. Periodic inspections of battery and terminal
voltages, specific gravity, and connection resistance should be made. Strictly follow the procedures outlined in
the battery manufacturer's manual. (See battery manufacturer’s web site.)
Valve-regulated lead-acid batteries do require periodic maintenance. Although they do not require maintenance
of electrolyte levels, visual inspections and checks of battery voltage and connection resistance should be made.
NOTICE
Do not use cleaners on the batteries. Solvents can make the battery cases brittle. Use only a dry cloth or a cloth moistened
in water
Since individual battery characteristics are not identical and may change over time, the UPS module is equipped
with circuitry to equalize battery cell voltages. This circuit temporarily increases charging voltage to maintain
flooded type battery cells at full capacity.
!
WARNING
Risk of electric shock, explosive reaction, hazardous chemicals and fire. Can cause equipment damage,
personal injury and death.
Do not use equalize charging with valve-regulated, lead-acid batteries, such as those used in Liebert
battery cabinets. Refer to the battery manufacturer’s manual, available on the manufacturer’s Web site, for
specific information about equalize charging.
