REPO port
The UPS includes an isolated REPO port. When properly wired, the REPO feature enables the power at
the UPS output receptacles to be switched off from a remote location. To use this feature, the REPO port
must be connected to a remote, normally open switch (not supplied). The REPO switch is used in
conjunction with a main disconnect device that removes the AC source from the input of the UPS. When
the switch is closed:
•
The REPO feature immediately powers down protected devices and does not utilize the orderly
shutdown procedure initiated by power management software.
Component identification 9
•
The REPO feature shuts down UPS units operating under either utility or battery power.
NOTE: If the UPS was operating on battery power when the remote switch was closed, no power is
available to the load devices until utility power is restored and the UPS has been manually powered up.
To restore power to the load devices after the REPO feature is activated, press the On button after the AC
source is reconnected to the UPS.
IMPORTANT: Pressing and holding the On button without utility present normally initiates a battery start
and the UPS assumes the load. However, if the On button is pressed and a REPO is detected, battery start is
inhibited and the UPS is not able to assume the load. The electronics module fan spins and the General
Alarm LED and an audible alarm are active as long as the On button is held.
To power down the entire network in the event of an emergency, the REPO ports of multiple UPS units can
be connected to a single switch.

Federal Communications Commission notice
Part 15 of the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) Rules and Regulations has established Radio
Frequency (RF) emission limits to provide an interference-free radio frequency spectrum. Many electronic
devices, including computers, generate RF energy incidental to their intended function and are, therefore,
covered by these rules. These rules place computers and related peripheral devices into two classes, A
and B, depending upon their intended installation. Class A devices are those that may reasonably be
expected to be installed in a business or commercial environment. Class B devices are those that may
reasonably be expected to be installed in a residential environment (for example, personal computers).
The FCC requires devices in both classes to bear a label indicating the interference potential of the device
as well as additional operating instructions for the user.
FCC rating label
The FCC rating label on the device shows the classification (A or B) of the equipment. Class B devices
have an FCC logo or ID on the label. Class A devices do not have an FCC logo or ID on the label. After
you determine the class of the device, refer to the corresponding statement.

Preventing electrostatic discharge............................................................................................................. 57
Grounding methods to prevent electrostatic discharge ................................................................................ 57
Preventing electrostatic discharge
To prevent damaging the system, be aware of the precautions you need to follow when setting up the
system or handling parts. A discharge of static electricity from a finger or other conductor may damage
system boards or other static-sensitive devices. This type of damage may reduce the life expectancy of the
device.
To prevent electrostatic damage:
•
Avoid hand contact by transporting and storing products in static-safe containers.
•
Keep electrostatic-sensitive parts in their containers until they arrive at static-free workstations.
•
Place parts on a grounded surface before removing them from their containers.
•
Avoid touching pins, leads, or circuitry.
•
Always be properly grounded when touching a static-sensitive component or assembly.
Grounding methods to prevent electrostatic discharge
Several methods are used for grounding. Use one or more of the following methods when handling or
installing electrostatic-sensitive parts:
•
Use a wrist strap connected by a ground cord to a grounded workstation or computer chassis. Wrist
straps are flexible straps with a minimum of 1 megohm ±10 percent resistance in the ground cords.
To provide proper ground, wear the strap snug against the skin.
•
Use heel straps, toe straps, or boot straps at standing workstations. Wear the straps on both feet
when standing on conductive floors or dissipating floor mats.
•
Use conductive field service tools.
•
Use a portable field service kit with a folding static-dissipating work mat.
If you do not have any of the suggested equipment for proper grounding, have an authorized reseller
install the part.
For more information on static electricity or assistance with product installation, contact an authorized
reseller.
