FXM UPS Operator's Manual
Switching the FXM from Line mode to Inverter mode
You can also force the FXM to operate in the inverter mode by manually turning off the input circuit breaker. Doing so will effectively disconnect any line power to the FXM, simulating a power outage which
triggers the FXM to swtich to the inverter mode of operation.
Procedure
1. Turn off the input circuit breaker. The LCD shows INVERTER,
the status LED starts flashing to show the FXM is running on
backup battery power. Confirm that the load is receiving power.
Switching the FXM from Inverter mode to Line mode
The FXM remains in inverter mode for as long as the input circuit
breaker is turned off. Backup power is provided to the load until
the batteries are drained to a preset level which triggers the FXM
to shutdown automatically. If it is not necessary to operate the FXM
in inverter mode, you should switch the FXM back to Line mode as
soon as possible.
Procedure
1. Turn on the input circuit breaker. The FXM qualifies the line
power. The LCD displays RETRAN, then shows LINE, BUCK or
BOOST. The status LED turns on.
Note
If the FXM constantly switches between Inverter and Line modes due
to a noisy line, the FXM’s input parameters should be broadened
from normal to generator (See “Operating the Novus FXM, Sense
Type.” on page 40. Also See Specifications, “Boost/Buck/Line
Transfer Thresholds” on page 89).
In generator mode, the range of acceptable input frequency and voltage is expanded to accept the fluctuations created by a generator.

At the main menu (Figure 7.8) type 3 and press Enter.
Maintenance Submenu
30 Self Test This starts the self test and sets for how long it will run. The
Options default setting for the test duration is 2 minutes, but this can
be adjusted in 1 minute intervals. Also See “Operating the
Novus FXM, SELF TEST.” on page 40.
31 Inverter This switches the inverter on or off to allow you to prevent
On/Off a damaging deep battery discharge or to provide backup
battery power to the load. Also See “Operating the Novus FXM,
INVERTER.” on page 40.
You can set a delay before the inverter turns off to allow time for
turning off critical loads. The Set Inverter ON/OFF delay is only
available when the FXM is in Battery or Standby modes.
The delay can be adjusted in 1 second steps with a default
setting of 0 seconds to a maximum of 600 seconds (10
minutes). The delay is only available in Standby or Battery
modes. Once the FXM returns to Line mode, the delay resets
itself to 0 seconds.
32 Change This changes the FXM’s password. The factory set password is
Password 1111. It can only be changed when the when the FXM is in Line
mode. The password is limited to 4 alpha-numeric characters in
length.
34 Line This lets you set the delay when the FXM goes from Battery
Qualify Time mode to Line mode after the line becomes requalified. The
purpose of this delay is to make sure the line is stable before the
FXM switches back to it. Also See “Operating the Novus FXM,
QUAL TIME.” on page 40.
The default setting is 3 seconds, but you can set this to 3, 10,
20, 30, 40 or 50 seconds.
35 Low

Operation
Programming the Dry Contacts and the Clock
The FXM’s front panel contacts (See "Contacts C1 to C6” on page
16) can be programmed to meet your specifications with RS–232
communications. You can also adjust the FXM’s date and time.
Programming the Dry Contacts
The functions of dry contacts C1 to C5 (and if factory configured, dry
contact C6) can be changed with RS-232 communications.
For example, to change contact C1:
1. To see how it is currently programmed, type c1 (all lower case)
and press Enter.
2. The FXM responds with *c1=1 where the * shows the unit responded to your command.
For example: a "1" shows it is programmed to be the On Battery
indicator as shown in the Dry Contact Configuration table below.
Dry Contact Configuration
1= On Battery
4= Alarm
7= Timer 2
2= Low Battery
5= Fault
8= Timer 3
3= Timer 1
6= Disabled
9= 48VDC
(Only available for
contact C6)
Figure 7.14 – Dry Contact Configuration
3. To change the contact, type c1=X where X is 1 to 9 and press
Enter.
The FXM responds with *c1=(1 to 9). The programming is done
for that contact. Repeat as necessary for the other contacts.
Note
Each contact can only be programmed for one function at a time; it
cannot show multiple conditions.
4. To reset the contacts to the factory default, type default and
press Enter. The FXM responds with *default, showing it is
reset. This command also resets the timer setting to the 2 hours
factory default (See “Setting the Timer Contact” on page 52).

Controlling the external fan by temperature triggered dry contact
The Novus FXM has up to 6 dry contacts (C1 to C6) on the front
panel which can be configured by the user to open (or close) based
on the specific trigger conditions. Dry contact functions currently
available include: Alarm, Fault, Timer, Low Battery, On Battery, etc.
The Temperature trigger has been added as a new function, with a
user configurable range of +20°C to +55°C. When the battery temperature (monitored by the Battery Temperature Probe) reaches the
threshold, the assigned relay closes and turns on the external fan.
Note
Dry contact C6 is by default factory hard wired to External VDC. If
you need to configure C6 as a programmable dry contact, the unit
must be sent back to the factory.
The Temperature trigger can be programmed via one of the following
3 interfaces:
1. LCD panel – from the Logo screen, navigate to Control Menu
> RELAY TEMP. Press the SELECT button and the current
temperature display will start flashing. Use the Scroll button to
change the temperature in 5°C increments. Press SELECT to accept the changes or CANCEL to abort.

Programmable Dry Contact Time of Day Action
You can assign a dedicated timer to a dry contact. Upon entering the
inverter mode of operation, the timer is activated and begins to count
down from a user defined value. When the timer reaches zero, the
programmed dry contact relay will be activated (Status = ON). See
Figure 7.31.

Figure 7.31 – Programmable Timer Operation
A typical application of this timer controlled dry contact function
would be in controlling a traffic light. When the grid power fails, the
FXM goes into inverter mode and continue supplying backup power
to the traffic light. Since the batteries supplying the backup power
have limited capacities, a timer controlled dry contact is usually configured to switch the traffic light into the flashing amber mode after a
user-defined period of time in an attempt to conserve battery power.
This setup works fine during non peak hour traffic, but during peak
hour, it is necessary to keep the traffic light running normally for as
long as backup power is available. To address this issue, a new fea68

You can define up to 2 peak time periods of the day:
1. Go to the UPS Maintenance > Relay & Load Shed screen (Figure 7.33).
2. In the Time of Day Action Configuration dialogue box, setup
the start and end time of the first rush hour under Time Period
1 and the second rush hour under Time Period 2. In this example, during the first time period (7 AM to 9 AM), all 3 timers are
disabled (they do not count down at all). Similarly, all timers are
disabled during the second time period (3 PM to 6 PM).
3. Select ON under each time period. Click the Update button under each time period to store the settings. Confirm your settings
in the UPS Monitoring > Relay & Load Shed > Time of Day

Types of Trigger
There are 3 types of trigger:
• Edge trigger – when the user input changes from one state to
the other, the FXM is triggered to perform Action #1 (see Figure
7.43). If Level is set to High, the action will be triggered by a Low
to High edge (leading edge). If Level is set to Low, the action will
be triggered by the High to Low edge (falling edge).

• Level Toggle – when Level is set to High, the FXM is triggered to
perform the other action when the user input changes from Low
to High (see Figure 7.44a). If the input then changes from High to
Low, Action #2 will be triggered. In other words, a level change in
the user input will trigger an action toggle between Action #1 and
#2.

to perform the next action when the user input changes from Low
to High (Figure 7.45a). If the input then changes from High to
Low, no action will be triggered because Level is set to High. In
other words, only a Low to High user input level triggers an action when Level is set to High Similarly, when Level is set to Low,
the FXM will trigger an action only with a High to Low user input
(Figure 7.45b).

Com. In the Open Event File window, select the default event file
"event-1111.txt" (where 1111 is the serial number of the FXM) from the
default directory (Novus User Software V2.00.03). This will load the
previously saved events for viewing. Once the event file is loaded,
the software automatically begins to download the stored events from
the FXM to the computer. This process may taken a few minutes, and
"event-1111.txt" will be overwritten.
Note
To build a complete history of events for a FXM, it is a good practice
to save all the downloaded events from the unit to the same event
file. Alpha recommends keeping the default filename (event-1111.txt)
in the default directory (Novus User Software V2.00.03). A maximum
of 999 events can be stored on the FXM. The oldest events are
replaced by the newest ones.

Testing and Replacing the Batteries
Battery life
Batteries lose their ability to store power throughout their life. The batteries should be regularly tested to ensure they can continue to provide reliable service. Battery life is reduced by three major factors:
a. Temperature – higher ambient temperatures, especially above
25°C, will reduce battery life. For example, an average operating temperature of 27°C will likely reduce the life of the battery
by 25%. Ensure that the FXM and batteries are situated in a well
ventilated area with adequate temperature control. A cooler environment is preferable.
b. Number of discharge cycles – the more frequent the batteries are
discharged, the shorter the battery life. Frequent power outages
imply the need for more frequent battery replacement.
c. Depth of discharge – the longer the batteries are required to
provide back up power, the shorter the battery life. Frequent full
discharging (and the associated recharging) of the batteries reduces their life. Shut down the electrical load or return to primary
power as soon as possible in order to extend battery life.
Battery Run Time
Figure 8.1 shows a chart of typical run times (time to full discharge)
for the standard batteries supplied with this unit. Note that these runtimes are for batteries in new and good conditions and that run time
performance will deteriorate over time in a progressively decreasing
curve.

Maintenance
Battery Maintenance
The batteries supplied with this unit are sealed and maintenance
free. Regularly ensure that all connectors are tight and free of corrosion. The presence of corrosion, swelling of the battery case or
distortion in the shape of the case suggests that the batteries need
to be replaced (see “Replacing the Batteries” below).
Battery Conductance Test (Optional)
1. Place the conductance meter probes across battery #1.
2. Record the voltage and Siemens values in your log book.
3. Repeat for batteries #2, #3 and #4.
A new AlphaCell 180GXL battery has a conductance reference value
of 1100 Siemens at 25°C. When this value drops to 550 Siemens or
50% of the new battery reference value, the battery can be considered suspect of being below 80% capacity and should be evaluated
further. When the temperature of the batteries is not between 20°C.
and 30° C, use the following temperature compensation values.

Replacing the Batteries
Replace batteries as indicated by the results of self testing or the
presence of terminal corrosion, swelling of the battery case or distortion in the shape of the case. New batteries will normally provide
longer run times than older ones. Larger capacity batteries may be
available. Please call Alpha Technical Support (1-800-667-8743) to
order replacement batteries or to obtain assistance. On-site service
may be available in your area.
Tools and Materials Required
■■ AC/DC voltmeter or multimeter
■■ Labels or masking tape and marker
■■ Torque wrench
■■ Slot head screwdriver to fit the terminal blocks
■■ High strength, flame-proof tape (such as duct tape)

WARNING
Make sure you have read and understood the battery safety instructions in “Product Safety Information” on page 5.
Caution
Make sure all the replacement batteries are of the same type
and rating. Failure to do so could result in improper charging and
damage the batteries.
Note
While the batteries are being replaced, the FXM cannot provide
backup battery power. If the line becomes unqualified while the
batteries are being replaced, the FXM shuts down and no power is
provided to the load.
Procedure
1. The FXM must be in Line State (See Figure 7.2). If it isn’t, wait
until the line is qualified before proceeding.
2. Switch the FXM into Bypass State by doing one of the following:
a. From the FXM control panel, navigate to the UPS Control
Menu > INV BYPASS (See Figure 7.2); press the SELECT
button once, OFF is flashing; press the SCROLL button
once, ON is flashing; press SELECT button once, ON is now
displayed continuosly, indicating that the the FXM has been
switched into the bypass state.
b. From the Novus User Software main screen (page 59), go to
the UPS Maintenance > Unit Configuration screen. Turn
Bypass Mode on by clicking the ON button and then the
Update Configuration button. The FXM responses by displaying a “Bypass State” alarm. This is normal and does not
indicate a problem. It will clear itself when the Bypass State
is subsequently disabled.
3. Turn off the battery circuit breaker.
4. Replace the batteries (Also see “Wiring the external batteries” on
page 28).
5. Turn on the battery circuit breaker
6. Switch the FXM out of Bypass State by turning Bypass Mode
OFF.

Maintenance
Preventative Maintenance
Preventative maintenance should be performed on the FXM module every 6 to 12 months. For mission critical applications such as
backup traffic intersections, more frequent maintenance should be
planned. Proper implementation of the following procedure will insure
that your system continues to provide reliable backup power in the
event of a utility power failure.
Tools and Materials Required
• Wrench set
• Labels and marker to number batteries
• Conductance meter (for optional conductance test)
Procedure
1. Inspect the FXM and wiring for any physical damage. Repair or
replace as required.
2. Verify that all connections are securely fastened. Tighten if necessary.
3. Inspect the batteries for cracks or swelling. Replace all 4 batteries if any of the batteries are cracked or swollen. Replace only
faulty battery if an Alphaguard battery balancer is installed.
4. Inspect the battery terminals for corrosions. Clean and apply
a corrosion prevention compound such as NOCO Company
NCP-2 or Sanchem Inc. NO-OX-ID if required.
5. Re-tighten the battery terminal bolts on Insert Terminal batteries or re-torque to the manufacturers specifications the battery
terminal bolts on Flag Terminal batteries if required.
6. Label the batteries #1, #2, #3 and #4. The battery negative
cable from the FXM is connected to battery number one and
the battery positive cable from the FXM is connected to battery
number four.
7. Verify that the battery temperature probe is securely taped to the
side of either battery #2 or #3.

Operational Test
1. Activate the FXM self-test function.
2. After passing the self-test, disconnect the AC input to the FXM to
trigger the FXM into the backup (inverter) mode.
3. Let the FXM operate in the backup mode for approximately 10
minutes.
4. Measure the individual battery voltages while the FXM is operating in the backup mode. There should be no more than 0.6 volts
difference between the highest battery voltage and the lowest
battery voltage.
Caution
One battery measuring 2 volts lower than the other 3 batteries in the
string indicates a shorted cell in that battery. Replace all 4 batteries.
Three batteries in the string measuring the same voltage and one
battery measuring several volts higher indicates an open cell in the
