System Description
The UPS is connected between the public utility's mains and
the loads to be Protected.
The power section of the rectifier converts the mains voltage
to DC voltage for supplying the inverter. The circuit
technology used (PFC) enables sinusoidal current
consumption and therefore operation with little system
disturbance. A separate, second rectifier (charging REC set
up using switch mode power supply technology) is
responsible for charging or trickle-charging the battery
connected in the intermediate circuit. The configuration of this
charging REC means the harmonic content of the charging
current for the battery is almost zero, so the service life of the
battery is increased even more. The inverter is responsible for
converting the DC voltage into a sinusoidal output voltage. A
microprocessor-controlled control system based on pulsewidth modulation (PWM) in conjunction with digital signal
processor technology and extremely quickly pulsating IGBT
power semiconductors of the inverter guarantee that the
9
voltage system on the Protected busbar is of the highest
quality and availability.
In the event of mains faults (e.g. current failures), the voltage
continues to be supplied from the inverter to the load without
any interruption. From this point onwards, the inverter draws
its power from the battery instead of the inverter. No switching
operations are necessary; this means there is no interruption
in the supply to the load.
The automatic electronic bypass serves to increase the
security of supply further. It switches the public mains directly
through to the load if there is an inverter malfunction. As a
result, the automatic bypass represents an extra passive
redundancy for the load.
The integrated manual bypass ensures in case of service
and/or maintenances a complete power supply of all
connected loads. The internal electronic circuit (with
exception of the Protected manual bypass) can be enabled by
the input fuse.
The maximum security of supply for connected loads is
achieved by switching up to three Protect C UPS appliances
parallel. The n+x technology provides the highest possible
availability by a single or double redundancy. On the other
hand the power can be raised by using the single
redundancy. In case of no redundancy the highest power is
reached with the UPS. The relation between available power
and active redundancy is explained in the following table:

Safety Instructions for Protect C
The UPS carries high voltage. The unit may
only be opened by trained and qualified
personnel. Repairs may only be carried out by
qualified customer service staff!
The output may be live, even if the UPS is not
connected to the mains, since the UPS has its
own internal power supply (battery)!
For health and safety reasons, the unit must be
earthed correctly!
17
EN
Protect C. may only be operated with or connected to a 220 V
/ 230 V / 240 V mains with Protective grounding using a CE
marked mains connection cable with PE conductor that has
been tested in accordance with national standards.
Danger! Risk of burning!
The battery has powerful short circuit
currents. Incorrect connection or isolation faults
can lead to melting of the plug connections,
sparking potential and severe burns!
The unit has a warning signal that sounds when
the battery voltage of Protect C is exhausted or
when the UPS is not working in its normal mode
(chapter 8, page 45).
Observe the following safety instructions to
ensure permanent operational safety of and safe
work with the UPS and the battery modules
(special accessories):
♦
Do not dismantle the UPS!
The UPS does not contain any parts that require regular
maintenance. Bear in mind that the warranty will be
invalidated if the unit is opened!
♦
Do not install the unit in direct sunshine or in close
proximity of heaters!
♦
The unit is designed to be installed inside in heated
rooms. Never install the housing in the vicinity of water or
in an excessively damp environment!
♦
Condensation may occur if the UPS is brought from a
cold environment into the room where it is to be installed.
The UPS must be absolutely dry prior to start-up. As a
result, leave it to acclimatise for at least two hours.
♦
Never connect the mains input to the UPS output, and
vice versa!
Ensure that no fluids or foreign bodies can penetrate the
housing!
♦
18
♦
Do not block the air vents of the unit! Keep children away
from the unit and ensure that objects are never inserted
through the air vents!
♦
Do not connect household appliances such as hairdryers to
the UPS! Also take care when working with motor loads. It is
essential to avoid back-feeding the inverter, e.g. if the load is
intermittently operated in regenerative mode.
Danger! Electric shocks!
Even after the mains voltage has been
disconnected, the components within the UPS
remain connected to the battery and can thus
cause electric shocks. It is therefore imperative
to disconnect the battery circuit before carrying
out any maintenance or repair work!
If it is necessary to replace the battery or carry
out maintenance work, this must be done by or
under the supervision of a specialist familiar with
batteries and the necessary safety precautions!
Only authorised persons are allowed in the
vicinity of the batteries!
When replacing the batteries, the following must be observed:
Only ever use identical maintenance-free sealed lead
batteries with the same data as the original batteries.
Danger! Explosive!
Never throw batteries into open fire.
Never open or damage batteries. (Electrolyte
may leak out and damage skin and eyes. It may
be toxic!)
Batteries can cause electric shocks and high
short-circuit currents.
Take the following safety precautions when working with the
batteries:
♦ Take off watches, rings and other metallic objects!
♦
Always use tools with insulated handles!

4.2
Transportation to the site
The Protect C provides for easy transportation to the site of
installation transport rolls. It is recommended to position the
USP such that
♦ the connection tasks can be performed easily;
♦ there is enough space for perfect operation and if
necessary for periodical and exceptional maintenance;
In this context the cables should be long enough, to be
able to move the UPS (for opening the UPS) without
switching it off;
♦ the UPS is Protected against atmospheric influences;
♦ the humidity and the temperature remain in the specific
range;
♦ the fire Protection norm are complied.
The battery life time depends strongly of the environmental
temperature. The temperature should lie between +15° and
25° C.
Attention!
Only transport the Protect C in upright position.
Don’t tilt or put on the edges! Prevent
dislocation of centre of gravity!
Be sure not to store or use any magnetic storage media near
the Protect C.
22
4.3
Point of Installation
Note the following points when setting up the UPS system
and its external battery units (special accessories):
♦
The contact surface must be smooth and in level. It must
also be sufficiently strong and sturdy to avoid vibration
and shock loads.
♦
Make sure the mounting is able to support the weight:
This is particularly important in conjunction with external
battery units (special accessories).
♦
Set up the units so that adequate air circulation is
assured. There must be at least 100 mm clearance at the
back for ventilation purposes. Do not block the intake
openings on the front and, if present, on the side of the
unit. There must be a gap of at least 50 mm here.
♦
Set up external battery units (special accessories) on the
side of the UPS system. To ensure the greatest possible
mechanical stability, you should not set up the external
battery unit(s) above or below the UPS system.
♦
Avoid extreme temperatures! We recommend an ambient
temperature of 15 °C to 25 °C in order to maximise the
service life of the batteries. Do not expose the units to
direct sunlight or operate them close to other heat
sources such as radiators.
♦
Protect the units against external effects (in particular
moisture and dust). In this regard, please also refer to the
instructions in chapter 4.2, page 22 in these operating
instructions.
If you transport the unit from a cold room into a warm one, or
if the room temperature suddenly drops then condensation
may form inside the unit. To avoid any damage due to
condensation, leave the unit to acclimatise for 2 hours before
you switch it on.

Commissioning
Attention
Before any work is started, ensure that the cables
are free of tension and no power can be switched
on.
i
To prevent a deformation of the bus-bar and to
keep the foot of the terminal free of torsion, it is
recommended to hold the cable when removing
the terminal screw.
The grounding Protection prevents inappropriately high
contact tension with reachable metal pieces. The grounding of
the Protect C is realised via the grounding screw
/ PE). Before starting ensure that the Protect C is
(
grounded according the regulations, e.g. VDE 0100.
Before starting the connection tasks check that:
♦ the values of the mains voltage (input voltage) and
frequency complies with the values on the label on the
UPS,
♦ the grounding connection complies with the IEC norms

Once you have connected the UPS to a suitable mains
connection, you can start operation using the UPS main
switch. Normally, the UPS operates continuously. The UPS
now supplies the output with voltage, this being signalled by
the symbols mains (LED Line) and inverter (LED Inverter)
symbols which light up permanently.
This is often referred to as “online” mode. It offers the greatest
Protection, in particular when there are mains fluctuations and
mains failures, because the loads are supplied continuously
with voltage with no interruptions in this operating mode.
The LED bargraph (LED chain on the left hand side of the ON
/ OFF button) show during operation the actual utilization of

The mains is not within the required tolerance range or has
failed. In this case power is supplied to the inverter from the
charged battery without interruption. The power supply to the
loads is therefore also ensured in the event of a mains failure.
This drains the capacity of the battery and it is discharged. This
status is signalled by the battery symbol (LED Battery) lighting
up, as well as an intermittent acoustic signal every 4 seconds
and every second before switching off. This can be suppressed
by pressing the “Alarm off” button. With decreasing battery
capacity the alarm is activated automatically. Depending on the
expansion level, age and condition of the battery and in
particular on the load to be supplied, the standby time can vary
from a few minutes to several hours.
The inverter is switched off if the battery voltage drops below
a factory-set minimum voltage value.
Never store the unit in this condition! The discharged battery
system should be recharged within a week at the latest.
When the voltage and frequency are within the tolerance
range once more, the inverter and the battery charger switch
back on automatically. The inverter then continues supplying

If the inverter is overloaded or if overtemperature is detected,
e.g. also if an inverter defect is detected, voltage is supplied
to the load via the bypass that switches on automatically. This
is signalled by the bypass symbol.
This function is also referred to as passive redundancy. It
Protects against total failure of the voltage supply on the
Protected busbar, however in the operating status that is now
attained, mains faults would have a direct effect on the load.
As a result, the electronics continuously attempt to switch
back to "online" / normal operating status (e.g. when the
overload or overtemperature no longer applies).
The bypass is a mechanical link that switches extremely
rapidly. It is located between the load and the mains. The

The manual bypass allows maintenance and service
personnel to work on the Protect C without switching of the
appliance.
If the mains supply fails if the manual bypass is
activated, the loads supply fails completely. For
this reason, it is important to switch as fast as
possible to normal operation mode.
6.1.5
Unit Overload
The load on the UPS should never exceed the specified rated
load of the unit. If a unit overload occurs nevertheless (from
105% of the specified unit rated load) the fault LED is turned
on accompanied with a signal tone (twice per second). The
connected loads continue to be supplied for a certain time
depending on the level of the overload. However, the
connected load must be reduced without delay.
Non-observance of the "Unit overload" condition may cause
the total loss of all UPS functions!
Also avoid short-term unit overloads, which may, for example,
occur when connecting a laser printer or laser fax machine.
39
EN
Do not connect any household appliances or machine tools to
the UPS.
Never connect or switch on any additional loads
to the UPS if there is a mains failure, i.e. if the
UPS is working in emergency power operation!
As a rule, if there has never been an overload during normal
operation, there will not be one during battery operation
either.
The signalling of the fault LED in combination
with a continuous alarm points out a switching of
fault. Follow the instructions in chapter 8.2.

Parallel operation
9.1
Functionality
Protect C. 6000 (S) and C. 10000 (S) was developed for the
parallel operation in n+x technology (”n“ stands for the
number of necessary appliances for load supply, “x“ stands
for the redundancy level). Up to three appliances of the same
type can be connected in parallel to raise the output power
and/or to receive a higher availability.
EN
The following constellations are possible according to the n+x
technology:
1 + 0 Use of 1 unit
max. 6 or 10 kVA
No redundancy
1 + 1 Use of 2 units
max. 6 or 10 kVA
Single redundancy
1 + 2 Use of 3 units
max. 6 or 10 kVA
Double redundancy
(max. configuration level)
2 + 0 Use of 2 units
max. 12 or 20 kVA
No redundancy
2 + 1 Use of 3 units
max. 12 or 20 kVA
Single redundancy
(max. configuration level)
3 + 0 Use of 3 units
max. 18 or 30 kVA
No redundancy
(max. configuration level)
49
The active redundant parallel operation will switch
automatically to the increase power mode if more power is
required at the output of the UPS. This implements that the
redundancy level decreases or will diminish completely. On the
other hand the level of redundancy of the UPS will increase if
the power consumption on the output decreases.
The distribution generally is realised in the low voltage main
distribution (LVMD) where the external and the following sub
distribution for connected load circuits takes place. Such
parallel control panels in wall cabinets including an external HU
as well as input and output control panel can also be ordered
via AEG Power Supply System and their partners.
9.2
Setup / connection of the parallel operation field
The mains connection of each UPS is realised analogue to
the description in chapter 5.
For the single phase mains connection for each
UPS the same phase has to be used, i.e. all
UPS have to use either L1 or L2 or L3 (no mix!).
The supply of the multi pole central external
manual bypass has to be realised with this
phase.
The UPS outlets are connected via separator with the parallel
operation bus-bar. At this point the instructions of chapter 5
are to follow.
The following applies for output and input lines of the UPS:
The difference in length of the lines with a line length of up to
20 m may not vary more the 20% and with more than 20 m
not more than 10%.
The default bridge between “JP1” and “JP2” in the control
panel of every UPS has to be removed. The distribution of the
output has to be executed according the instructions of
chapter 5. Please take care of the exact labelling of the
elements to prevent any operation error. The communication
between the parallel connected units is realised with the 25
pole parallel operation line that comes with the UPS.
50
The first step is to remove the parallel port cover (Pos 5, page
26/27) and to connect the UPS with each other with the
parallel operation line. With two units use one, with three units
use two parallel operation lines (don’t set up a ring structure!)
(Communication) parallel operation interconnection
... with 2 units:
... with 3 units:
After connecting the units with the parallel operation line close
the parallel operation cover again. Turn the cover by 180°
such that the notches show to the bottom.
The hardware installation is completed now.
9.3
Operation in parallel compound
The activation process is not complicated and no knowledge
is required. Just follow the instructions in chapter 6. Should
you have ordered the parallel operation panel from AEG
Power Solutions follow the instructions of the separate
operation manual. The display of the UPS operates analogue
to the description of a single unit in chapter 8.

to be brought into the “UPS” position. Fix on each
UPS the cover with the four previously removed
screws.

The power supply of the parallel bus-bar now is
realised via the integrated electronic bypass
equipment of the UPS. Check the operation
state on the display of each UPS = bypass
(chapter 6.1.3.).
Activate the central external manual bypass now:
Change from position “bypass” to “UPS operation”
i.e. connects the load bus-bar with the UPS
parallel operation bus-bar.
This takes place without interruption, if you are
using a manual bypass switch with overlapping
contacts.

Now switch on the inverters of each UPS. To do
this, press and hold the UPS ON switch one by
one for about 2 seconds.
When being powered on, the UPS will perform
self-diagnosis, the Load/Battery level LEDs will
be turned on and then off one after another in
ascending order. After synchronising all
inverters successfully the LED “Inverter” will go
on after some seconds on each UPS, with the
UPS in parallel normal mode. The loads bus-bar
is supplied by the UPS.
Protect the central external manual bypass
switch against accidental activation. Never
activate the switch when the UPS is in inverter
mode.

9.3.2
When all displays are lit as described, switch on
your loads one after the other. Note the maximum
permitted UPS load when doing this. Also keep in
mind the spare power, if an active redundancy is
required.
Modification in parallel compound
For adding another UPS to the parallel compound or for
removing a UPS from the parallel compound, the UPS system
has to be brought into the Bypass operation mode.
i
Load supplied through mains!
(No UPS Protection during these steps).
First switch the inverter of all the UPS system one by one off
(press the “OFF“ switch). All UPS systems are working in the
SBS / bypass mode. Check the state on all displays. Activate
the integrated bypass (Pos. 2, page 26/27) on the back of the
UPS. For this remove the four screws of the cover on the
rear.
Bring the mains input circuit breaker of each UPS into the
“OFF” position. With the central external manual bypass the
53
EN
bypass for the loads is done, i.e. activation of the manual
bypass operation, suspension of the supply for the load by the
UPS bus-bar.
The clearance of the voltage of each UPS is realised in the
low voltage distribution. Now the expansion resp. the
reduction of the parallel compound can be executed now.
Watch out for the bridge between “JP1” and JP2” and the
parallel operation line. The activation follows the steps in
chapter 9.3.1.
i
For deactivating the UPS in the parallel
compound just press the „OFF“ switch twice
behind each other. Like this the UPS-Systems
can be removed from the parallel operation
bus-bar.

Maintenance
The Protect C consists of advanced and resistant
components. To guarantee a continuous and high availability
it is recommended to check the unit (especially the batteries
and the fans) in regular intervals (at least every 6 months).
CAUTION:
Before going through the next step disconnect
the Protect C from the mains.
10.1
Charging the Battery
The battery is automatically charged when the mains is
present, irrespective of the operating mode. This is signalled
by the "charge" symbol lighting up (see also chapter 4.4.2,
page 25).
The complete charging time of the battery after a length
discharge period depends, above all, on the number of
additional external battery units.
Charging time up to 90% of rated capacity
10.2
Only with internal UPS battery
approx. 7 hours
One additional battery unit
approx. 11 hours
Two additional battery units
approx. 16 hours
Three additional battery units

Maintenance
The following maintenance work should be performed:
10.2.1
Task
Visual check
Interval
6 months
Described in
Chapter 10.2.1
Battery/fan check
6 months
Chapters 10.2.2 / 10.2.3
Visual Check
When visually checking the unit, check whether:
55
EN
♦
there is any mechanical damage or foreign bodies can be
found in the system,
♦
any conductive dirt or dust has accumulated in the unit,
♦
accumulation of dust affects heat supply and dissipation.
CAUTION:
Protect C must be disconnected from the
power supply prior to carrying out the
following work.
If large quantities of dust have accumulated, the unit should,
as a precaution, be cleaned with dry compressed air, in order
to ensure adequate heat dissipation.
The intervals at which visual checks should be performed are
largely determined by the site conditions.
10.2.2
Checking the Battery
Progressive ageing of the battery system can be detected by
regular capacity checks. Every 6 months, perform
measurements to compare the achievable standby times, e.g.
by simulating a mains failure. In this case, the load should
always have approximately the same capacity demand.
Please contact our hotline if the time drops drastically
compared to the previous measurement (see page 5).
10.2.3
Fan Checking
Regularly check the fans for dust build-up and noticeably
untypical noise development. Clean the intake openings if
they are blocked. Contact our hotline if a fan is running
unusually loud or irregularly (see page 5).

Storage, Dismantling and Disposal
11.1
Storage
Long storage times without charging or
discharging the battery at regular intervals may
lead to permanent damage of the battery.
If the battery is stored at room temperature (20° C to 30° C) it
will automatically discharge at a rate of 3 - 6% per month due
to internal reactions. Storing the battery at temperatures
above room temperature should be avoided. A high storage
temperature also means greater battery self-discharge.
Batteries that are stored at room temperature should be
recharged every six months to maintain their full capacity and
service life.
i
11.2
Connect Protect C to the mains before putting it
into storage, in order to make sure that the
battery is fully charged. The charging time
should at least match the time specified in
chapter 9.2. Charging the Battery on page 55.
Dismantling
The system is dismantled in reverse order of the installation
instructions.
11.3
Disposal
In the interest of environmental Protection and recycling,
please dispose of the individual system components in
accordance with the regulations and legal guidelines when
permanently taking the system out of operation. Please
consider that infringements to these regulations may result in
civil or criminal prosecution.
