Check the UPS front cover for active alarms or messages. Rectify any active alarms before continuing. Refer
for that on table 23 «Troubleshooting» on page 36. If the indicator
is on, do not proceed until you have
removed all alarms. Check the UPS status on front cover to view the active alarms. Correct the alarms and
restart if necessary.
⑨
Verify that the
indicator is illuminated. It indicates that the UPS is operating normally and that any loads
are powered.
⑩
If optional EBPs are installed, then refer to page 24 «Battery number configuration» to adjust the installed
number of EBPs.
⑪
To change any other standard default factory settings, see on page 19 «Parameter Settings».
⑫
If you installed an optional EPO, then test the EPO function: activate the external EPO switch. Verify the
status change on the UPS display. Deactivate the external EPO switch and restart the UPS.
a) NOTE: At initial start-up, the UPS sets the system frequency according to input frequency of the line (the input
frequency auto-sensing is enabled by default).
b) NOTE: At initial start-up, please set the needed output voltage before you are starting up the UPS. After the
subsequent start-up, the UPS will output the setting voltage.
c) NOTE: The internal batteries charge up to 80% of capacity in less than 5 hours. However, we recommend after
installation or long-term storage that the batteries are charged during 48 hours. If optional EBPs are installed, refer
to recharge times listed in table 21 «Battery runtimes at 100% load» on page 34.

5.4. Emergency Power Off (EPO)
The EPO is used to shut down the UPS from a distance. This feature can be used for shutting down the load and the UPS by
thermal relay, such as in the event of a room overtemperature. When EPO is activated, the UPS shuts down the output and
all its power converters immediately. The UPS indicates a fault alarm.
There is also an EPO option for the User on the front panel, to trigger the EPO function by pressing all three front switches
simultaneously. When these three switches are pressed at the same time, the EPO function will be activated, the UPS will
shut down and the buzzer will long beep. The pressing of the start-up switches will not turn on the UPS unless the EPO function
is deactivated by pressing the three switches simultaneously and by pressing the OFF-switches to return to normal status.

WARNING:
The EPO circuit is an IEC 60960 safety extra lower voltage (SELV) circuit. This circuit must be separated from any
hazardous voltage circuits by reinforced insulation.
CAUTION:
 The EPO must not be connected to any utility connected circuits. A reinforced insulation to the utility is
required. The EPO switch must have a minimum rating of 24Vdc and 20mA and be a dedicated latching-type
switch not tied into another circuit. The EPO signal must remain active for at least 250ms for proper operation.
 To ensure that the UPS stops supplying power to the load during any mode of operation, the input power must
be disconnected from the UPS when the emergency power off (EPO) function is activated.

The load segments are sets of receptacles that can be controlled by management software or through the display; they
provide an orderly shutdown and start-up of your equipment. For example, during a power outage, you can keep critical
equipment running while you turn off other equipment. This feature allows you to save battery power.
Each UPS has two load segments:
 Load segment 1: can be turned off and be set concerning battery power voltage (chosen for the less important load)
by LCD display.
 Load segment 2: chosen for critical and therefore important load.
See section «Rear Covers» on page 35 for the load segments of each UPS model.
Fig. 24 – Load segments
5.6. UPSilon2000 Power Management Software
Each UPS is delivered with the UPSilon2000 Power Management Software. For installation of this software, refer to the
instructions accompanying the software CD.
NOTE: Install UPSilon2000 Power Management Software with the serial number noted on CD cover. When running
the monitor software, choose the appropriate communication port. If using RS232, choose COM1/2 and Megatec
protocol for network management. If using USB, choose the Megatec USB.
UPSilon2000 software provides up-to-date graphics of UPS power, system data and power flow. It also gives you a complete
record of critical power events, and it notifies you of important information about UPS or power. If there is a power outage
and the UPS battery becomes low, UPSilon2000 software can shut down your computer system automatically in order to
protect your data before the UPS shutdown occurs.

6. MAINTENANCE
This chapter contains information about the maintenance of UPS and batteries, the replacement of extended battery packs
(EBPs), the testing of new batteries and the recycling of used batteries or the UPS.
6.1. Maintenance of UPS and Batteries
For the best preventive maintenance, keep the area around the UPS clean and dust-free. If the ambient air is very dusty, clean
the outside of the system with a vacuum cleaner. To reach maximum battery life, keep the UPS at an ambient temperature
of 25°C.
NOTE: The batteries in the UPS are rated for a 3-5 year service life under normal operating conditions. The length of
service life varies depending on the frequency of usage and the ambient temperature. The usage of batteries beyond
their expected service life will often have severely reduced autonomy times as consequence. Replace the batteries
at least every 5 years to keep the units running at peak efficiency.
6.2. Storing the UPS and Batteries
If you store the UPS for a long period, recharge the battery every 6 months by connecting the UPS to utility power. The internal
batteries charge up to 80% of capacity in less than 5 hours. However, after a long-term storage, we recommend to recharge
the batteries during 48 hours. If optional EBPs are installed, refer to table 21 «Battery runtimes at 100% load» at page 34 for
recharge times. Check the date of battery recharge on the shipping carton label. If the date is expired and the batteries were
never recharged, do not use the UPS. Contact your service representative.
6.3. Replacing the Batteries
NOTE: DO NOT CONNECT the batteries while the UPS is in battery mode.
The EBP can be replaced during UPS operation. But be aware that, in case of a utility failure, the load will NOT be protected
at that time.
If you prefer to disconnect the current for replacing the batteries, then refer to section «Start up and Turn off the UPS» on
page 23.
WARNING:
 Service must be performed only by qualified personnel knowledgeable of batteries, as well as following the
required precautions. Keep unauthorized personnel away from batteries.
 The batteries present a risk of electrical shock or fire because of the high short circuit current. Observe the
following precautions: a) Remove metal jewellery as rings, watch, etc.; b) Use tools with insulated handles; c)
Do not lay tools or metal objects on top of batteries; d) Wear rubber gloves and boots.
 When replacing the batteries, then replace them by batteries or EBPs of same type and number. Contact your
service representative to order new batteries.
 When replacing the batteries, it is required to replace all batteries at the same time and not individually.
 Do not throw batteries in fire, because they may explode.
 Dispose the batteries properly (refer to local codes waste legislation)

6.4. Replacing the UPS (Rack/Tower) and Battery Packs (EBPs)
If the battery of modular unit fails, then perform the following steps to replace it by a new battery pack:
①
Remove the front cover of the battery housing.
②
Remove the connection cables between the battery housing and the UPS. Release the screw of the metal sheet of
the battery pack as shown on figure 25. The remove the metal sheet from the right or left.
Fig. 25 – Installation of the metal sheet of the battery pack
③
Grasp the handle in front of the battery pack, pull it out and hold it, then remove the battery pack as shown on figure
26.
Fig. 26 – Remove the battery pack
④
Hold the middle of the new battery pack and insert it. If installing a new battery pack, ensure that it is completely
inserted into the chassis/support (see figure 27).
Fig. 27 – Installation for battery pack
6.5. Testing New Batteries
To test new batteries, execute the following steps:
①
Connect the UPS to the mains during 48 hours to charge the batteries.
②
Start up the UPS by pressing the start-up key combination.
③
Press the key combination of battery test to activate the test of batteries. The UPS starts a battery test if the batteries
are fully charged, if the UPS is in normal mode with no active alarm and if the bypass voltage is acceptable.
During the battery test, the UPS transfers to battery mode and discharges the batteries during 10 seconds. The LED
indicators on front panel stop cycling when the test is completed.

6.6. Recycling the Used Batteries and the UPS
WARNING & CAUTION:
 Do not throw the batteries into normal waste or in a fire (risk of explosion).
 Do not throw the UPS, the sealed lead-acid batteries and the electrical or electronic material (WEEE) into normal
waste. According to local codes, everything must be disposed properly in a center for recycling or for hazardous
waste. Contact such a center for detailed information.
 Do not open the battery(-ies) and do not damage them wilful. Released electrolytes are harmful to skin and eyes.
It may be toxic.
