Introduction
Thank you for selecting an MGE UPS SYSTEMS product to protect your electrical equipment.
The Pulsar MX range has been designed with the utmost care.
We recommended that you take the time to read this manual to take full advantage of the many features of your UPS
(Uninterruptible Power System)
Warning: this is a class A UPS product. In a domestic environment, this product may cause radio interference, in wich case,
the user may be required to take additional measures.
Output cables should not be longer than 10 meters.
If the device must be installed in overvoltage category III or IV envoronments, additional upstream overvoltage protection must
be provided for.
Before installing Pulsar MX, please read the booklet on the required safety instructions. Then follow the indications in this
manual.

Battery Integration System
The Battery Integration System is intended
for extended backup time configurations to
conveniently stack and secure up to 8
modules on the same cart (swivel wheels with
brakes, leveling feet, seismic side panels,
plates to lock modules and screws included).
Battery extension cable (1,8 m / 6 ft)
This extended battery cable will be used instead of the standard battery cable when battery modules are distant from each
other (located in two different enclosures, for instance).

2.4 Communication ports
Pulsar MX RT provides 3 communication methods that can be used simultaneously:
◗ 2 COM ports provide RS232 or USB communications using MGE UPS SYSTEMS SHUT protocol. Compatible with most
power management software applications available into the enclosed Solution Pac CD-Rom. Please, note that both ports
cannot be used at the same time.
◗The output contact port is used for basic signaling or for protection of IT systems like IBM iSeries (formerly AS400) and more.
◗ The two slots are compatible with any MGE UPS SYSTEMS communication card (check www.mgeups.com web site for
the complete list of compatible cards).
Connection to the RS 232 communication port
1 - Connect the RS232 (1) communications
cable to the serial port on the computer
equipment.
2 - Connect the other end of the
communication cable (1) to the RS232 (2)
communications port on the UPS.
The UPS can now communicate with various
MGE UPS SYSTEMS power management
application software. Please note that the
configuration software is included with
Personal Solution Pac for Windows.

Installation of a Remote Power Off function must be carried out in compliance with applicable regulations.
In order to fully de-energize devices and Pulsar MX Frame with the RPO port, it is necessary:
◗to use a two-position switch (Normally Open or Closed contact should be held more than 1 second to be taken into account).
(1) and downstream(2) Pulsar MX
◗ to connect to this RPO switch a device that allows to trip all breaker(s) located upstream
RT. This can be achieved by means of a shunt trip.
(1) : If not, the output devices could be powered again through static switch when the two-position switch is released.
(2) : If not, the output devices will remain powered several seconds after the RPO activation.
Please, notice that the internal batteries will remain connected to the power sub-module after RPO activation.
The cable is not included.

2.9 Extended battery (EXB) connections
This type of connection must be carried out by qualified electrical personnel
It is not necessary to shutdown the UPS in order to install the extended battery (EXB) module.
Up to three batteries may be connected to each levels of the Pulsar MX Frame.
The sequence below shows connection for two battery cabinets per level on a Pulsar MX Frame 20000 RT model.
1 - Check that the battery circuit breaker (1) of
each EXB is OFF ("0" position).
Start the following operations from the
lowest level:
2 - Connect the battery cable (2) to the UPS
battery power connector (3) and the other
end of the battery cable to the EXB battery
power connector (4).
3 - Connect the battery detection cable (5) to
the UPS battery detection connector (6) and
the other end of the battery detection cable to
the EXB battery detection connector (7).
4 - Connect the inter-EXB battery cable (8) to
the second EXB battery power connector (9)
and the other end of the battery cable to the
second EXB battery power connector (10) of
the above EXB.

6 - Repeat operations 2 to 5 to other levels
7 - Close the battery circuit breaker (1) of
each EXB ("I" position).
Caution: a battery can cause electrocution and high short circuit currents.
Do not dispose of batteries in a fire. The battery may explode
Do no open or mutilate batteries. Released electrolyte is harmful to the skin and eyes. It may be toxic.

1 - Connect the equipments to the UPS using
the cables (1).
It is preferable to connect the priority
equipments to the two outlets (3) and the non
priority equipments to the two outlets (2) that
can be programmed in pairs.
Connect any high-power devices to the 16 A
outlet (4)
To program shutdown of outlets (2) during
operation on battery power and thus optimise
the available backup time, the MGE UPS
SYSTEMS communication software is
required.
2 - Fit the connection securing system (5) that
prevents the plugs from being pulled out
accidentally.

Backup time
Time that the connected equipments can operate on battery power.
Bypass AC source
Source supplying the bypass line. The equipments can be transferred to the bypass line if an
overload occurs on the UPS output, for maintenance or in the event of a malfunction.
Equipments
Devices or systems connected to the UPS output.
Frequency converter
Operating mode used to convert the AC-power frequency between the UPS input and output
(50 Hz -> 60 Hz or 60 Hz -> 50 Hz).
Low-battery warning
This is a battery-voltage level indicating that battery power is low and that the user must take
action in light of the imminent break in the supply of power to the load.
Manual bypass
Rotary switch controlled by the user, used to connect the equipments directly to the AC source.
Transfer of the equipments to the manual bypass enables UPS maintenance without interrupting
the supply of power to the connected equipments.
Normal AC source
Normal source of power for the UPS.
Normal (double
conversion) mode
The normal UPS operating mode in which the AC source supplies the UPS which in turn supplies
the connected equipments (after electronic double conversion).
Personalisation
It is possible to modify certain UPS parameters set in the factory. Certain UPS functions can also
be modified by the MGE UPS SYSTEMS power management products to better suit user needs.
Programmable
outlets
These outlets can be automatically shut down during operation on battery power (shutdown time
delays can be programmed with the MGE UPS SYSTEMS power management products). The
UPS has two sets of two programmable outlets.
Relay contacts
Contacts supplying information to the user in forme of signals.
UPS
Uninterruptible Power System.
