Safety Instructions
Connection
Only connect the UPS to an earthed electric safety socket or be sure to
connect it to the protective conductor in the event of a connecting terminal. Under no circumstances may the device may be operated without a
protective conductor.
The socket for home installation must be easily accessible and in the
vicinity of the UPS. Be sure to have the shortest possible cable lengths
for fixed connections.
When operating with a generator, you must ensure the correct polarity of
the connection for the UPS.
To connect the UPS to the socket of the home installation, only use a
VDE tested and CE labelled mains cable. For a fixed connection, an appropriate cable is to be used.
To connect the loads to the UPS, only use a VDE-tested and CE-labelled
cable. For a permanent connection of the loads, an appropriate cable is to
be used.
The protection of the loads must always take place directly on a load,
never centrally at the UPS.
Do not operate any household or craftsman tools such as fan heaters,
vacuum cleaners, drills, hair dryers, toasters, etc. with the UPS.
Do not connect any loads to the UPS, which could overload the device
(e.g. laser printer).
The total earth leakage currents of all the loads connected to the UPS
may not exceed 3.5 mA.
Keep cables as short as possible and always lay them correctly. Dangers
such as stumbling, squeezing, clipping, etc. are to be avoided with the
cables.
To connect the loads to the UPS, only use a VDE-tested and CE-labelled
power cables with the appropriate cable diameter. The protection of the loads
must always take place directly on a load, never centrally at the UPS. Do not
connect any loads to the UPS, which could overload the device (regard the
high starting currents).

Safety Instructions
Operation
Before the loads are connected on the output, the basic configuration must be
set. The output voltage in relation to the loads is very important.
The UPS system includes energy storage (accumulators). As a result, the output can carry power even if the UPS is not connected on the mains input side.
To completely switch off the UPS, disconnect the mains connector and then
press the "OFF" key for more than 3 seconds, wait until the UPS is switched off
and then disconnect the mains connection (remove the mains power cable
from the device). Make sure that no liquids or foreign bodies enter the UPS. To
protect the UPS, you should avoid a constant load at the output of over 80 %.
The display of the output load is only to be viewed as a reference value. To determine the exact output load, separate measurements are required.
2.7
Handling Accumulators
Attention – Danger of electric shocks and burns.
Accumulators can cause electric shocks and produce high short circuit
currents that can in turn lead to burns.
Unauthorised staff are to stay away from accumulators.
Do not bring accumulators into contact with heat sources or throw them
in the fire. There is an explosion danger!
Do not open or destroy accumulators. The released electrolyte is very
dangerous for people and the environment (searing danger for skin and
eyes, poisonous).
MKD series
17
UPS MKD 1500 RT
Safety Instructions
Defective accumulators must be disposed in an environmentally
friendly way.
Do not throw accumulators in household trash under any circumstances.
Local disposal requirements are to be regarded.
2.8
Maintenance, Service and Malfunctions
Attention – Danger of electric shocks.
Even after switching off the device with the power switch or disconnecting the battery supply, parts of the UPS can produce high voltage.
Work on accumulators is only to be conducted and monitored by staff
with appropriate knowledge of the required safety rules.
Unauthorised staff are to be kept away from accumulators.
When working on the UPS and the accumulators, the following precautions are to be taken:

Device Description of UPS
Device Description of UPS
This manual is intended to provide basic information about single-phase offline
UPS systems, namely how they function, the application of different functions
and what you should do in the event of malfunctioning.
Furthermore, this manual contains instructions for the transport and storage as
well as the handling and installation of the UPS system.
The plan guidelines in this manual only relate to special requirements for the
UPS systems. During installation, make sure you follow the national and local
requirements for electrical installations.
The content of this device description may change due to technological progress. We have tried to present the content correctly and clearly. If, however,
we have made errors, we would be grateful for information about this.
We are not liable for errors in this description and the resulting consequences.
The UPS system (uninterrupted power supply system) is intended to protect
sensitive, electrical systems such as computers, work stations, electronic cash
registers, critical instruments for operation, telecommunication systems, process controls, etc. against interruptions that can occur due to poor power quality
or mains failures. Sensitive systems of this kind require complete protection
against electrical disturbances. These may involve external disturbances (such
as thunderstorms, operational disturbances) or disturbances from adjacent devices (such as engines, air conditioners, processing machines, welding equipment, etc.).
The mains disturbances can be summarised as follows:
– quick and slow mains voltage peaks, fluctuations;
– mains failure;
– quick and slow frequency peaks, fluctuations;
– mains interference or transients
The UPS system monitors the aforementioned mains parameters and protects
the connected loads by taking appropriate countermeasures (e.g. switching to
support operation in the event of temporary over- or under-voltage in the mains
in order to protect the end devices).
The device can be modified with ease. You have the option of installing the
UPS upright using the feet or alternatively it can be installed horizontally in a
19" rack.
Please note chapter ( 3.3 Device modification) which describes the modification process.

System Description
System Description
The UPS operates continuously following the double converter principle. It prepares the mains current and provides an uninterrupted and fault-free, singlephase voltage for the loads critical to operation.
In addition to supplying the loads, the device also keeps the internal accumulators charged. In the event of a mains failure or a mains disturbance, the UPS
continues to supply clean voltage at the UPS output without interruption. The
energy is obtained from the accumulators in support mode.

System Description
If the mains failure exceeds the bridging period of the UPS, this switches off to
prevent deep discharge of the accumulators. With the return of mains voltage,
the UPS starts up again automatically, supplies the loads and controls charging
of the accumulator bank.
Outstanding performance features of the MKD online UPS are:
– no interruptions whatsoever or signal changes should the primary mains
supply fail.
– perfect sine voltage at UPS output. The output voltage quality is considerably better than the in-house mains voltage.
– processor-controlled bypass operation.
– "power factor" correction at input end (> 0.95).
– LCD for displaying status and operating data.
– Outstanding power factor of 0.9.
– High-performing and extensive communication interfaces.
– RS232 as standard
– USB as standard
– Programmable switching contacts as standard
– "EPO" emergency stop contact as standard

Installation and Connection of the UPS
Installation and Connection of the
UPS
All the requirements stated in the technical data for the surrounding and operational conditions are to be observed to ensure the perfect operation of the UPS.
In setting up / installing the UPS, the following must be heeded:
Avoid extreme temperatures and air moisture.
Consider the required horizontal installation position.
Make sure that the ventilation of the device is ensured. An appropriate flow
channel is to be considered.
Pay attention to the arrangement of the system. When installing in superordinate systems (e.g. machines, control cabinets), make sure that the
UPS is operated in the indicated temperature range. When heat builds up
within the installation room, it must be removed with a sufficient ventilator.
It may only be attached on the flange (floor plate).
6.1
Connection of the UPS
The models of the MKD series are equipped with plug connections.
The UPS system includes components with high voltage and currents.
Improper handling can lead to electrical accidents with deadly consequences or property damage.
The protective conductor must be connected! If this is not done, the
loads are not earthed.
The connection of the UPS must have the poles correct for generator
operation.
If the UPS system is in an emergency power off (EPO) circuit, it is to be considered that the UPS output will not be powerless if the EPO is activated.
The loads continue to be supplied for the length of the support period.

UPS communication connection
To exchange data with the UPS, there is a convenient communication interface.
Only one communication port can be active at any one time. The USB port
takes priority over the RS232 port.
The software can exchange data with the UPS if a communication cable is
connected. The software gathers detailed information about the status of the
energy supply from the UPS. In the event of a supply emergency, the software
ensures that all data is saved and that the devices are powered down correctly.

Operating Manual for the UPS
The operator of this UPS system must always observe the instructions in
this manual. The operator may only undertake the following listed measures and only with particular care:
Using the operating elements: switch on, start and switch off the
UPS.
Reading the display elements and interpreting the acoustic warnings.
Starting the test operation.
Using the communication interface, whereby the connection to a

Maintenance and Service
Maintenance and Service
You can assume a long service life and uninterrupted operation with minimum
maintenance for your UPS system.
The reliability of the UPS will however be determined primarily by the surrounding conditions. Temperature and moisture in the surroundings of the system
must be kept within the limits. Furthermore, the area around the UPS should
be as clean and free of dust as possible.
With an ideal surrounding temperature of 22 °C, the typical service life of the
accumulators amounts to approximately 4 years. By using special accumulators, the service life can be significantly increased (approx. 8 - 10 years).
At regular intervals (6 - 12 months), you should check that the remaining bridging period is sufficient for the intended purposes. If this is not the case, the accumulators must be exchanged.
10.1
Measurement of the Bridging Period
(Support Period)
Before you begin with this procedure, you should be sure to make a
backup of all open data records. Also inform all involved employees.
To measure the support length, there are primarily two methods.
Method a)
is suited for measuring the actual support period, whereby the loads will
inevitably become powerless at the end of the bridging period.
Method b)
permits the determination of the remaining capacity after a defined support period. In the process, the loads usually do not become powerless.
To apply one of the named methods, force the UPS into support operation by simulating a mains failure (e.g. trigger building's security system).
Do not remove the power cables under any circumstances, since then the
protective conductor is separated. After completing the measurement,
switch on the circuit breaker again and start the UPS as usual with the
ON key.

Maintenance and Service
Remember that the accumulators of the system are discharged after the
measurement, which means that the UPS system must work for a few hours
(at least 5 hours) in the mains and charging operation before it is ready for use
again at approx. 80 %.
If the measurement of the support period is not carried out due to local conditions or directives, we recommend a prophylactic replacement of the accumulators every two years to avoid the risk of an insufficient support period on account of degenerated accumulators.
