Warnings
The components in the InfraStruXure Power Generation System and UPS power distribution system
can pose life-threatening danger when improperly installed, operated, or maintained. To prevent
accidents, be aware of the dangers and act safely. Read and follow all of the safety instructions and
warnings in this manual and in all of your component manuals.
The InfraStruXure Power Generation System is an Optional Standby System
The generator and Automatic Transfer Switch (ATS) that you purchased from APC is classified as an
Optional Standby System—it provides backup or standby power to data centers in the event of a
sustained power failure.
The InfraStruXure Power Generation System is not to be classified as an Emergency System that is
essential for safety to human life (e.g., fire pumps, operating room, and life-support equipment in
hospitals) as legally required by a municipal state, federal, or other governmental codes.
The InfraStruXure Power Generation System is not to be classified as a Legally-Required Standby
System as it is not supplying power to aid in fire fighting, rescue operations, control of health hazards
(e.g., sewage) and similar operations as required by a municipal, state, federal, or other governmental
codes.
Emergency and Legally-Required Systems are not allowed to rely on municipal fuel for operation and
municipal water for cooling. Emergency and Legally-Required Systems require dual fuel systems,
with one of them being a two-hour, on-site fuel supply.
Your InfraStruXure Power Generation System is not to be classified as an Integrated Electrical

Overview
InfraStruXure Power Generation System
The InfraStruXure Power Generation System consists of a diesel-powered generator and an
Automatic Transfer Switch with Power Distribution. The ATS is connected to utility mains (Source
1) and the generator (Source 2), with utility mains as the preferred source. The ATS is designed for
the data center floor, which places the ATS and the power distribution closer to your data center
equipment. Labels on the ATS provide quick visual indication of which ATS sub-feed breaker is
supplying power to each piece of equipment. The diagram below provides examples of data center
equipment that can be connected to the ATS.

Operation of the ATS during a utility mains failure when automatic operation is
enabled
Typically, your data center
equipment is powered by
utility mains [Source 1] (),
and the generator is off.
When the Source 1 line
quality is bad (), the ATS 
signals the generator to start
().When the generator
starts, the ATS will perform
an open transfer to generator

Automatic Transfer Switch with Power Distribution
Overview: How the InfraStruXure Power Generation System Operates
Generator start sequence
The generator start sequence is followed only if the Crank setting in the Operating Settings menu
on the Generator Settings screen on the ATS display interface menu is set to Yes. If it is enabled, the
following sequence will occur:
After a start signal is initiated, either by the ATS or manually, and the generator battery is good, the
generator engine will crank and the generator should start. If the generator does not start, it will crank
for the length of the Crank Time, and then rest for the length of the Rest Time. The generator will
repeat this pattern for the number of times set in the Crank Cycles before stopping the attempt to
start. Check the messages on the display interface for reasons why the generator did not start.
On the generator controller interface, the LEDs track conditions during the start sequence:

Generator cool-down
After the load is powered by the generator, and the utility mains returns and is powering the load, the
generator may enter a cool-down period. If the coolant temperature is above the Coolant
Temperature Limit, the generator will enter a cool-down period. During generator cool-down, the
generator disconnects the alternator from the output and then runs at idle speed for 10 minutes. After
the idle speed time expires, the generator will shut down. If the coolant temperature is not above the
Coolant Temperature Limit, the generator will not enter a cool-down period but will shut down
after the utility mains returns and is powering the load.

Open and closed transfers
When a transfer is not occurring, one switch is ON and the second switch is OFF.
During a closed transfer, the second switch will turn ON before the first switch turns OFF, creating a
brief period of time when both switches are ON.

During an open transfer, the first switch will turn OFF before the second switch turns ON, creating a
period of time when neither source is connected. This period is commonly referred to as the neutral
time.

Source 2
You can set whether or not to Allow Closed transfers under the Transfer Setup item on the ATS
Setup menu on the display interface. (See page 35 for details on these settings.) If the Allow Closed
setting is Yes, the ATS will always seek to perform closed transfers. In order for a closed transfer to
occur, the voltage and frequency for both sources has to be good; in addition, a closed transfer cannot
occur if the two sources are not synchronized. The ATS monitors for both sources to be synchronized
before transferring. If the time it takes for the sources to be synchronized exceeds the configured
Max Sync Time, the ATS will perform an open transfer instead. During a closed transfer, the ATS
also takes into account the time it takes for the switch to actuate, which creates a seamless transfer—
non-UPS-protected equipment will not be interrupted and the UPS time on battery will be reduced,
and in some cases, eliminated.
If the Allow Closed setting is No, the ATS will never perform closed transfers—it will always
perform open transfers. (See page 35 for details on these settings.) During an open transfer, the first
switch will turn OFF before the second switch turns ON, creating a period of time when neither
source is connected. This period is commonly referred to as the neutral time. The neutral time is
defined by the configurable Open Xfer Time.

Overview: How the InfraStruXure Power Generation System Operates
Fuel monitoring/runtime calculation
Fuel monitoring is a unique feature of the InfraStruXure Power Generation System. Fuel level is
monitored at the generator (if purchased through APC) and load is measured at the ATS. These
measurements are used to calculate runtime, as explained in the following paragraph:
Fuel is monitored by a level sensor in the generator fuel tank (calibrated to the bottom of the fuel
tank) that changes readings every -inch of fuel level change. From these fixed level points, the ATS
counts the number of gallons or liters of fuel used (based on load over time) and subtracts this from
the fixed level fuel amount to give an accurate estimate of fuel level. The remaining runtime is then
calculated based on the fuel usage rate at the current load and the remaining fuel in the tank. Once a
new fuel level point is reached, the value of the calculated fuel used is reset and the computation
begins again.
The Fuel Level and Runtime Estimate is displayed on the Generator Status screen on the ATS
display interface, and you can set the following Fuel Alarm Limits in the Alarms menu of the
display interface:
Percent Fill: If the amount of fuel as a percentage falls below this value, an alarm condition
exists.
Runtime: If the estimated runtime falls below this value, an alarm condition exists.

Overview: ATS Component Details
ATS label kit
ATS Label—Place this label on the outside of the ATS enclosure to
identify the ATS, and to associate it with the appropriate source 1 and
source 2.
Source Label—Use a Source 1 label at the primary utility mains
breaker to identify the ATS that it is connected to. Use a Source 2 label
if you are connecting to a secondary utility mains breaker instead of a
generator.
Generator Label—Use three of these labels at the generator to identify
which ATS it is connected to. Place one label on each long side of the
generator near the generator brand name labels, and place one label on
the door where the generator controller is located.
Single-Pole Label—Use one of these labels with a single-pole breaker
on the ATS distribution panel to identify to what the breaker is feeding
power. Use the marker (included) to write on the label.
Three-Pole Breaker Label—Use one of these labels with a three-pole
breaker on the ATS distribution panel to identify to what the breaker is
feeding power. Use the marker (included) to write notes on the lower
portion of the label. The labels are customized for typical components
in an InfraStruXure system. Blank labels are also included for
components that are not pre-marked on the included labels.
Front Bezel Label—If you are not using a generator for source 2, use
one of these labels to replace the Generator Power System label on the
left-hand side of the bezel. You can use either the Automatic Transfer
Switch or the Standby Power System label to describe your system.
ATS Deadfront Source Label—Use these alternate labels for source 1
and source 2 if you do not want Utility Mains and Generator to describe
your sources. Using these labels, you can use Primary and Secondary or
Normal and Alternate to describe source 1 and source 2.

How to reset automatic operation on the ATS and on the generator
Resetting automatic operation on the ATS. If the Not in Automatic Operation LED is lit and
the Automatic Operation switch is in the Enable position, you need to reset automatic operation
after the event that caused this condition has been corrected. (See page 21 for a detailed description
the events that might lead to this condition.) You can also clear certain alarms by resetting automatic
operation on the ATS. See “Clearing latched alarms” on page 44 for more information.
To reset automatic operation on the ATS, set the Automatic Operation switch to Disable () and
then back to Enable ().


Resetting automatic operation on the generator. If the ATS display interface reports a
generator shutdown alarm and the Alarm LED is red, you must reset automatic operation on the
generator to clear the alarm (the Shutdown LED on the generator control panel will also be red).
Events that lead to this condition include engaging the data center EPO switch and engaging the
E-Stop button on the generator. If any EPO was engaged, the switch must be disengaged before
automatic operation can be reset. If shutdown was not caused by EPO, contact APC service (see
“Service” on page 82). To reset automatic operation on the generator:
 Set the /Manual/Auto switch on the generator control panel to .  Press the Fault
Acknowledge/Reset button on the generator control panel.  Set the /Manual/Auto switch on the
generator control panel back to Auto.



Automatic Transfer Switch with Power Distribution
Operation: Automatic Operation
Problem—loss of automatic operation
Typically, the Not In Automatic Operation LED tracks the state of the Automatic Operation
switch (i.e., the LED is lit when the Automatic Operation switch is in the Disable position). If the
Not In Automatic Operation LED is lit while the Automatic Operation switch is in the Enable
position, check messages on the display interface to determine the cause—one of the following
conditions exist:
1. The ATS attempted to actuate either the Source 1 or Source 2 switch, and could not.
When a switch cannot actuate, one of the four following actions cannot take place:
– The Source 1 switch cannot turn ON (Close)
– The Source 1 switch cannot turn OFF (Open)
– The Source 2 switch cannot turn ON (Close)
– The Source 2 switch cannot turn OFF (Open)
When the ATS cannot actuate a switch, it will attempt several more times before stopping.
There are two cases of this condition:
– The load is receiving supply from utility mains, and the Source 1 switch trips.
When the Source 1 switch trips, the ATS will try to re-close the switch. If the switch cannot
be closed the ATS will start the generator and then close the Source 2 switch. The load will
be powered by the generator and the ATS will be in Not in Automatic Operation mode until it
is reset (see page 20).
– The load is receiving supply from the generator, and the Source 2 switch trips.
When the Source 2 switch trips, the ATS will try to re-close the switch, and after several
attempts one of two things will happen, depending upon whether utility mains is available.
• If utility mains is not available, the generator will continue to run until utility mains is
available. Once utility mains is available, the ATS will switch to utility mains and then turn
off the generator. Utility mains will supply power to the ATS, and the ATS will be in Not in
Automatic Operation mode until automatic operation is reset (see page 20).
• If utility mains is available, the ATS will switch to utility mains and then turn off the
generator. Utility mains will supply power to the ATS, and the ATS will be in Not in
Automatic Operation mode until automatic operation is reset (see page 20).
2. The data center EPO switch that is connected to the ATS EPO interface was engaged.
When the EPO switch is engaged, the ATS Source 1 and Source 2 switches are tripped open,
and the generator’s emergency stop signal is engaged—the ATS is no longer supplying output
power. The ATS immediately goes into Not in Automatic Operation mode. The ATS stays in
Not in Automatic Operation mode until the system is reset. To reset the system, disengage the
data center EPO switch and reset automatic operation on the generator and on the ATS (see
page 20).

Emergency Manual Operation
Warning—before you operate the ATS manually
The procedures in this section only apply to situations where automatic operation through the ATS is
impossible. One example of such a situation is if the ATS monitoring unit were not functioning. If
automatic operation through the ATS is impossible, and you must power your load from the
generator, follow the instructions in “How to power the load from the generator” on page 23.
22
Caution
Only operate the ATS switches manually when automatic operation is disabled. If
automatic operation is enabled, the ATS will attempt to actuate the switches to return to
the preferred source.
DANGER
All transfers performed when automatic operation is disabled must be open
transfers—both switches must be OFF before turning ON the desired source’s
switch. Attempting a closed transfer will damage equipment.

Display Interface: Testing
How a test occurs
When a test is not in progress, the
ATS is waiting for a test to occur.
You initiate a test by scheduling a
test on the Test Schedule screen
on the display interface, or by
starting a test immediately
through the Run/View Test
screen on the display interface.
Once a test is initiated, the ATS
will start counting down until the
next test (Next Test item on the
Test Schedule menu). Once the
Next Test time expires, the ATS
will signal the generator to start.
The generator will crank in an
attempt to start. If the generator
does not start, the test fails and
the ATS will log that the test
failed. If the generator starts, and
the ATS determines that Source 2
is OK, the test will begin with the
configurable Warm Up time.
Once the Warm Up time expires,
the ATS will determine whether
or not you want to perform a
System Load Test, which is a test
that the generator will run with
the data center load applied to it.
If the test does not include a
System Load Test, the ATS will
proceed to the cooldown test
stage. If the test includes a System Load Test, the ATS will transfer to Source 2. The transfer can be open or
closed, depending on how the Allow Closed setting is configured on the ATS Setup menu. The load test will
occur for the length of the Loaded time, and once the loaded time expires, the ATS will retransfer to Source 1
and then proceed to the cooldown test stage.
During the cooldown test stage, the generator will run for the duration of the configurable Cooldown time.
Once the Cooldown time expires, the generator will stop and the ATS will log either that the test was successful
or that it failed. The ATS displays test results on the View Test Log menu on the Testing screen.

Display Interface: Alarms
Fuel Alarm Limits
Low Fuel Alarms:
• Percent Fill: If the amount of fuel as a percentage falls below this value, an alarm
condition exists. See “Fuel monitoring/runtime calculation” on page 9 for more
information.
• Runtime: If the estimated runtime falls below this value, an alarm condition
exists. See “Fuel monitoring/runtime calculation” on page 9 for more information.
Other Limits
Other Limits:
• Frequency: If the frequency is outside this range, an alarm condition exists.
• Alarm Delay: Before an output alarm condition exists, a limit must be exceeded
for this amount of time (in seconds). The advantage of the delay is that it filters
short alarm conditions, which are normal in ATS operation. For example, when
utility mains power is shut off, the ATS will have a low voltage condition;
however, once the generator begins operation, this alarm is meaningless. An
Alarm Delay of more than 15 seconds may prevent the display of the low voltage
alarm in this example. The Alarm Delay applies to all Voltage, Loading,
Frequency, and Runtime limits.
Alarm Beeper
When the alarm beeper is sounding, it will do so every 30 seconds, and touching any key on the ATS display
interface will de-activate it. Use this menu option to turn the beeper off so that it never sounds when an alarm
occurs, or turn the beeper on again. The default is On.
Clearing latched alarms
When an alarm is present, the ATS display interface Alarm LED is red. To clear latched alarms, you must
acknowledge them differently than all other alarms. The following are latched alarms:
• Test Complete-Failed: The system has failed a self-test.
• Gen Start Failure: The generator failed to start.
To clear a latched alarm, choose the Clr Latched Alarms option on the Alarm/Event Log menu of the
Alarms screen to turn the LED off. You can also clear latched alarms by resetting automatic operation on the
ATS. To reset automatic operation on the ATS, set the Automatic Operation switch to Disable () and then

Communication Configuration: Configuring the ATS Network Management Interface
Configuration Overview
You must configure the following TCP/IP settings before the ATS can operate on a network:
• IP address of the ATS (only needed for manual address assignment)
• Subnet mask
• Default gateway
Note
If a default gateway is unavailable, use the IP address of a computer that is located
on the same subnet as the ATS and that is usually running. The ATS uses the default
gateway to test the network when traffic is very light. See “Watchdog Features” in
the “Introduction” of the InfraStruXure Power Generation System’s On-line
Network Management User’s Guide for more information about the watchdog role
of the default gateway.
TCP/IP configuration methods
Use one of the following methods to define the TCP/IP settings needed by the ATS:

Communication Configuration: Configuring the ATS Network Management Interface
BOOTP & DHCP configuration
The Boot Mode Setting, a TCP/IP option in the ATS’s Network menu, identifies how the TCP/IP
settings will be defined. The possible settings are Manual, DHCP only, BOOTP only, and DHCP &
BOOTP (the default setting).
The DHCP & BOOTP setting assumes that a properly configured DHCP or BOOTP
server is available to provide TCP/IP settings to ATSs. If these servers are unavailable,
see “Device IP Configuration Wizard” on page 52, “Local access to the control console”
on page 55, or “Remote access to the control console” on page 55 to configure the
needed TCP/IP settings.
Note
With Boot Mode set to DHCP & BOOTP, the ATS attempts to discover a properly configured server.
It first searches for a BOOTP server, then a DHCP server, and repeats this pattern until it discovers a
BOOTP or DHCP server.
For more information, see “BOOTP” on page 53 or “DHCP” on page 54.
Note
BOOTP. You can use an RFC951-compliant BOOTP server to configure the TCP/IP settings for the
ATS.
Note
The BOOTP setting assumes that a properly configured BOOTP server is available to
provide TCP/IP settings to APC ATSs. If a BOOTP server is unavailable, see “Device IP
Configuration Wizard” on page 52, “Local access to the control console” on page 55, or
“Remote access to the control console” on page 55 to configure the TCP/IP settings.
1. Make sure that the BOOTP setting, a TCP/IP option in the ATS’s Network menu, is enabled.
2. Enter the ATS’s MAC and IP addresses, the subnet mask and default gateway settings, and an
optional Bootup file name in the BOOTPTAB file of the BOOTP server.
For the MAC address, look on the Quality Assurance slip included with the ATS.
See also
3. When the ATS reboots, the BOOTP server provides it with the TCP/IP settings.
– If you specified a bootup file name, the ATS attempts to transfer that file from the BOOTP
server using TFTP or FTP. The ATS assumes all settings specified in the bootup file.
– If you did not specify a bootup file name, the ATS can be configured remotely by using
Telnet or by using the Web interface: User Name and Password are both apc, by default.
To create the bootup file, see your BOOTP server documentation.

Communication Configuration: Configuring the ATS Network Management Interface
DHCP. You can use a RFC2131/RFC2132-compliant DHCP server to configure the TCP/IP settings
for the ATS.
See also
This section briefly summarizes the ATS communication with a DHCP server. For more
detail about how a DHCP server is used to configure the network settings for a ATS, see
“DHCP Configuration” in the InfraStruXure Power Generation System’s online
Network Management User’s Guide.
1. An ATS sends out a DHCP request that uses the following to identify itself:
– A Vendor Class Identifier (APC by default)
– A Client Identifier (by default, the ATS’s MAC address value)
– A User Class Identifier (by default, the identification of the ATS’s application firmware)
2. A properly configured DHCP server responds with a DHCP offer that includes all of the
settings that the ATS needs for network communication. The DHCP offer also includes the
Vendor Specific Information option (DHCP option 43). By default, the ATS will ignore
DHCP offers that do not encapsulate the APC cookie in the Vendor Specific Information option
using the following hexidecimal format:
Option 43 = 01 04 31 41 50 43
where
– the first byte (01) is the code
– the second byte (04) is the length
– the remaining bytes (31 41 50 43) are the APC cookies
See your DHCP server documentation to add code to the Vendor Specific Information
option. To disable the APC cookie requirement, see “Local access to the control
console” on page 55.
To change the control console’s DHCP Cookie Is setting, use the Advanced option in
the TCP/IP menu. See “Remote access to the control console” on page 55.

Communication Configuration: Configuring the ATS Network Management Interface
Local access to the control console
You can use a local computer that connects to the ATS through the console port on the ATS
monitoring unit to access the control console. If you are accessing the ATS on the local control
console, you will not receive any information about the generator.
1. Select a serial port at the local computer, and disable any service that uses that port.
2. Use the configuration cable (940-0103) to connect the selected port to the console port on the
ATS monitoring unit.
3. Run a terminal program (such as HyperTerminal) on your computer and configure the selected
port for 9600 bps, 8 data bits, no parity, 1 stop bit, and no flow control, and save the changes.
4. Press ENTER to display the User Name prompt.
5. Use apc for the User Name and Password.
6. See “Control console” on page 56 to finish the configuration.
Remote access to the control console
From any computer on the same subnet as the ATS, you can use ARP and Ping to assign an IP address
to an ATS, and then use Telnet to access that ATS’s control console and configure the needed TCP/IP
settings.
After an ATS has its IP address configured, you can use Telnet, without first using ARP
and Ping, to access that ATS.
Note
1. Use ARP to define an IP address for the ATS, and use the ATS’s MAC address in the ARP
command. For example, to define an IP address of 156.205.14.141 for an ATS that has a MAC
address of 00 c0 b7 63 9f 67, use one of the following commands:
– Windows command format:
arp -s 156.205.14.141 00-c0-b7-63-9f-67
– LINUX command format:
arp -s 156.205.14.141 00:c0:b7:63:9f:67
For the MAC address, look on the Quality Assurance slip included with the
ATS.
See also
2. Use Ping with a size of 113 bytes to assign the IP address defined by the ARP command. For the
IP address defined in step 1, use one of the following Ping commands:
– Windows command format:
ping 156.205.14.141 -l 113
Automatic Transfer Switch with Power Distribution
55
Communication Configuration: Configuring the ATS Network Management Interface
– LINUX command format:
ping 156.205.14.141 -s 113
3. Use Telnet to access the ATS at its newly assigned IP address. For example:
telnet 156.205.14.141
4. Use apc for both User Name and Password.
5. See “Control console” on this page to finish the configuration.
Control console
After you log on at the control console, as described in “Local access to the control console” on
page 55 or “Remote access to the control console” on page 55:
1. Choose Network from the Control Console menu.
2. Choose TCP/IP from the Network menu.
3. If you are not using a BOOTP or DHCP server to configure the
TCP/IP settings, select the Boot Mode menu. Select Manual boot mode, and then press ESC to
return to the TCP/IP menu. (Changes will take effect when you log out.)
4. Set the System IP, Subnet Mask, and Default Gateway address values.
5. Press CTRL-C to exit to the Control Console menu.
6. Log out (option 4 in the Control Console menu).
If you disconnected a cable during the procedure described in “Local access to the
control console” on page 55, reconnect that cable and restart the associated service.

How to Access the ATS Network
Management Interface
Note
The procedures in this section apply if you want to access the ATS from the public
LAN, if you want to access the ATS through the APC LAN, see the InfraStruXure
Manager’s Installation and Quick-Start manual for information.
Web interface
As your browser, you can use Microsoft® Internet Explorer 5.0 (and higher) or Netscape® 4.0.8 (and
higher, except Netscape 6.x) to access the ATS through its Web interface. Other commonly available
browsers also may work but have not been fully tested by APC.
To use the Web browser to configure ATS options or to view the event log, you can use either of the
following:
• The HTTP protocol (enabled by default), which provides authentication by user name and
password but no encryption.
• The more secure HTTPS protocol, which provides extra security through Secure Socket Layer
(SSL) and encrypts user names, passwords, and data being transmitted. It also provides
authentication of Network Management Cards by means of digital certificates.
To access the Web interface and configure the security of your device on the network:
1. Address the ATS by its IP address or DNS name (if configured).
2. Enter the user name and password (by default, apc and apc for an Administrator, or device and
apc for a Device Manager).
3. Select and configure the type of security you want. (This option is available only for
Administrators.)
See the chapter entitled “Security” in the InfraStruXure Power Generation
System’s online Network Management User’s Guide for information on choosing
and setting up your network security. Use the Web/SSL option of the Network

Communication Configuration: How to Access the ATS Network Management Interface
Telnet and SSH
You can access the control console through Telnet or Secure SHell (SSH), depending on which is
enabled. (An Administrator can enable these access methods through the Telnet/SSH option of the
Network menu.) By default, Telnet is enabled. Enabling SSH automatically disables Telnet.
Telnet for basic access. Telnet provides the basic security of authentication by user name and
password, but not the high-security benefits of encryption. To use Telnet to access an ATS’s control
console from any computer on the same subnet:
1. At a command prompt, use the following command line, and press ENTER:
telnet address
As address, use the ATS’s IP address or DNS name (if configured).
2. Enter the user name and password (by default, apc and apc for an Administrator, or device and
apc for a Device Manager).
SSH for high-security access. If you use the high security of SSL for the Web interface, use
Secure SHell (SSH) for access to the control console. SSH encrypts user names, passwords, and
transmitted data.
The interface, user accounts, and user access rights are the same whether you access the control
console through SSH or Telnet, but to use SSH, you must first configure SSH and have an SSH client
program installed on your computer.
See the InfraStruXure Power Generation System’s On-line Network Management
User’s Guide for more information on configuring and using SSH.
See also
SNMP
After you add the PowerNet MIB to a standard SNMP MIB browser, you can use that browser for
SNMP access to the ATS. The default read community name is public; the default read/write
community name is private.
Note
58
If you enable SSL and SSH for their high-security authentication and encryption,
disable SNMP. Allowing SNMP access to the ATS compromises the high security you
implement by choosing SSL and SSH. To disable SNMP, you must be an Administrator;
use the SNMP option of the Network menu.
Automatic Transfer Switch with Power Distribution
Communication Configuration: How to Access the ATS Network Management Interface
FTP and SCP
You can use FTP (enabled by default) or Secure CoPy (SCP) to transfer new firmware to the ATS, or
to access a copy of the ATS’s event logs. SCP provides the higher security of encrypted data
transmission and is enabled automatically when you enable SSH.
Note
If you enable SSL and SSH for their high-security authentication and encryption,
disable FTP. Allowing file transfer to the ATS through FTP compromises the high
security you implement by choosing SSL and SSH. To disable FTP, you must be an
Administrator; use the FTP Server option of the Network menu.
To access the ATS through FTP or SCP, the default user name and password are apc and apc for an
Administrator, or device and apc for a Device Manager. In the command line, use the IP address of
the unit.

Safety warnings
Hazardous voltage from the branch circuit must be isolated from the 24VAC, 24VDC, and contact
closure terminals. 24VAC and 24VDC are considered Class 2 circuits as defined in Article 725 of the
National Electrical Code (NFPA 70) and Section 16 of the Canadian Electrical Code (C22.1).
A Class 2 circuit is a source having limited voltage and energy capacity as follows:
a. If an Inherently Limited Power Source, voltage and energy are limited to less than 30VAC,
less than 30VDC, and 8A.
b. If not an Inherently Limited Power Source, voltage and energy are limited to less than
30VAC, less than 60VDC, 250VA, and the current is limited to 1000/Vmax. The fuse is
limited to 5A if less than 20VAC or 20VDC, or 100/Vmaximum if less than 30VAC or
60VDC.
If you choose to use a 24VAC, 24VDC, or contact closure connection to the EPO, use one of the
following UL-listed wire types:
• CL2 Class 2 cable for general purpose use
• CL2P Plenum cable for use in ducts, plenums, and other space used for environmental air
• CL2R Riser cable for use in a vertical run shaft from floor to floor
• CL2X Limited Use cable for use in dwellings and for use in a raceway
• For installation in Canada, the cable should be CSA Certified, type ELC (extra-low-voltage
control cable).
If you do not use a CL2 cable, route the EPO wiring in conduit that does not contain any branch
circuit wiring.

† Always follow the National Electric Code (NFPA 75) or the Canadian Electric Code (CSA C22.1-02) and local codes when installing
the InfraStruXure Power Generation System. The AC Power Input wire sizes provided in this document are recommendations only. The
ATS is provided with a panel board to supply power to multiple loads. Since loading could increase after the product’s initial
installation, the AC Power Input wires were selected for the maximum current that can be delivered by the panel board. If the ATS is
purchased to supply a calculated load rated less than the panel board, and the load will never increase, smaller wires can be used if the
requirements in the NEC, CEC, and local codes are followed.
†† Wire sizes to loads shall be in accordance with the ratings of the circuit breakers selected to power the loads.

Warranty, Life-Support Policy, and Service
Warranty
APC warrants that all components of the InfraStruXure system will be free from defect in material
and workmanship for a period of two years from the date of start up when start up has been
performed by APC authorized service personnel*. If assembly services are included in the original
purchase and are also performed by APC authorized service personnel, APC offers an additional year
of parts warranty and the first year of on site coverage at no additional charge. In the event that the
system fails to meet the forgoing warranty, APC shall repair or replace, at its sole discretion, any such
defective parts. Under this warranty, APC will ship all parts to your site at no cost to be available for
you the next business day after APC is notified of this requirement. If you choose to upgrade the
system to include an on site contract, APC offers modular service packages to match your needs.
Each point product incorporated into the system has a separate factory warranty that is applied when
sold as a standalone unit. When incorporated into an InfraStruXure solution, the unit will be covered
by the InfraStruXure warranty. In cases where one warranty favors the customer over the other, the
stronger of the two warranties will take precedence. The InfraStruXure factory warranty covers only
those parts appearing on the bill of materials for that solution. Megawatt UPS systems are not
covered under the InfraStruXure factory warranty.
Battery functionality is typically impacted by age and environmental conditions, and therefore certain
requirements must be met by the end-user. Failure to adhere to these requirements may put the battery
warranty at risk. APC-supplied batteries must always be kept (whether stored or installed) in a
climate-controlled environment, and should be re-charged at a minimum of every three (3) months.
The battery environment must be free of excessive moisture, construction dirt, corrosive elements, or
other contaminants. The temperature range must be maintained at 41 to 95° F (5 to 35° C).
*All warranties are null and void unless startup is performed by authorized an APC Global Services
service center.
APC SHALL NOT BE LIABLE UNDER THIS WARRANTY IF ITS TESTING AND
EXAMINATION DISCLOSE THAT THE ALLEGED DEFECT IN THE PRODUCT DOES
NOT EXIST OR WAS CAUSED BY PURCHASER'S OR ANY THIRD PERSON'S MISUSE,
NEGLIGENCE, IMPROPER INSTALLATION OR TESTING, UNAUTHORIZED
ATTEMPTS TO REPAIR OR MODIFY, OR ANY OTHER CAUSE BEYOND THE RANGE
OF THE INTENDED USE, OR BY ACCIDENT, FIRE, LIGHTNING OR OTHER HAZARD.

Life-Support Policy
American Power Conversion Corporation (APC) and its affiliates and subsidiaries worldwide do not
recommend the use of any of their products in life-support applications where failure or malfunction
of the APC product can be reasonably expected to cause failure of the life-support device or to
significantly affect its safety or effectiveness. APC does not permit the use of any of its products in
direct patient care. APC will not knowingly sell its products for use in such applications unless the
life-support system or direct patient care device is part of a whole facility/building into which the
UPS is integrated, and unless APC receives, in writing, assurances satisfactory to APC that:
a. The UPS system will be configured in a manner that will provide N+1 power redundancy to
the critical load,
b. The end-user customer assumes all risks and signs the APC System Configuration and Use
Form, and
c. The customer and operators of the APC UPS system agree to indemnify and hold APC and
its affiliates and subsidiaries harmless for any and all claims arising out of the systems use in
such applications.
The term life-support device includes but is not limited to neonatal oxygen analyzers, nerve
stimulators (whether used for anesthesia, pain relief, or other purposes), autotransfusion devices,
blood pumps, defibrillators, arrhythmia detectors and alarms, pacemakers, hemodialysis systems,
peritoneal dialysis systems, neonatal ventilator incubators, ventilators (for adults and infants),
anesthesia ventilators, infusion pumps, and any other devices designated as “critical” by the U.S. FDA.
Hospital-grade wiring devices and leakage current protection may be ordered as options on many
APC UPS systems. APC does not claim that units with these modifications are certified or listed as
hospital-grade by APC or any other organization. Therefore these units do not meet the requirements
for use in direct patient care.
