Safety Symbols used in this manual
WARNING!
Indicates a hazard which, if not avoided, could result in injury or death.
CAUTION!
Indicates a hazard which, if not avoided, could result in damage to
the product or other property.
NOTICE!
Read and pay attention to this important information.
WARNING!
This UPS unit contains hazardous AC and DC voltages. Only qualified electricians should install the
UPS, AC line and external batteries, and must be familiar with batteries and battery installation.
Before installing, maintaining or servicing the UPS, shut off the UPS and disconnect all sources of AC
and DC power.
As the UPS has no built-in disconnection devices to switch off external AC and DC input power, ensure
that disconnection devices are provided as separate parts in connection with the installation!
The installer must provide each external disconnecting device for this UPS system with labels with the
following text:
“Isolate the Uninterruptible Power Supply (UPS) as instructed in this guide before working on circuit”.
AC and/or DC voltage will always involve a potential risk of AC voltage at UPS output generated from
either batteries or utility. To avoid equipment damage or personal injury, always assume that there
may be voltage at UPS output.
This system is equipped with an auto-start function. If activated the system may start without warning.
Refer to “Programming” section for information on de-activation.
TEST BEFORE YOU TOUCH!
To reduce the risk of fire or electric shocks, install the UPS and external batteries in a temperature and
humidity controlled indoor area, free of conductive contaminants.
UPS batteries are high-current sources. Shorting battery terminals or DC terminals, DC busbars can
cause severe arcing, equipment damage and injury. A short circuit can cause a battery to explode.
Always wear protective clothing and eye protection and use insulated tools when working on batteries.
CAUTION!
This unit contains components sensitive to electrostatic discharge (ESD). If you do not follow the ESD
procedures, you may cause severe damage to electronic components.

of AC and DC power.
As the UPS has no built-in disconnection devices to switch off external AC and DC input power,
ensure that disconnection devices are provided as separate parts in connection with the
installation!
The installer must provide each external disconnecting device for this UPS system with labels
with wording as follows:
“Isolate the Uninterruptible Power Supply (UPS) as instructed in this guide
before working on circuit”
AC and/or DC voltage will always involve a potential risk of AC voltage at UPS output generated
from either batteries or utility. To avoid equipment damage or personal injury, always assume
that there may be voltage at UPS output.
This system is equipped with an auto-start function. If activated the system may start without
warning. Refer to “Programming Parameters” for information on de-activation.
TEST BEFORE YOU TOUCH!
To reduce the risk of fire or electric shocks, install the UPS and external batteries in a
temperature and humidity controlled indoor area, free of conductive contaminants.
UPS batteries are high-current sources. Shorting battery terminals or DC terminals or DC
busbars can cause severe arcing, equipment damage and injury. A short circuit can cause a
battery to explode. Always wear protective clothing and eye protection and use insulated tools
when working with working near batteries.
CAUTION!
This unit contains components sensitive to electrostatic discharge (ESD). If you do not follow the
ESD procedures, you may cause severe dammage to electronic components.

The built-in parallel board connects two or more UPS systems in parallel, either to obtain
increased system reliability or to obtain higher output power. The parallel board also ensures
correct load-sharing between parallel systems.
NOTICE!
For reliability reasons, APC recommends separate battery packs in redundant/parallel
configurations.
To prepare the UPS for parallel/redundant mode, disconnect all sources of AC and DC power
supply to the UPS and connect the ribbon cable from the parallel board to the main controller
board. (The ribbon cable is delivered with the UPS).
CAUTION!
Do not connect ribbon cable in single configurations. Ribbon cable is for parallel operation only.
Complete the parallel system set-up by connecting the external control cables (see below).
Follow instructions in section 5.3 Programming of this guide to execute necessary
reprogramming.

Power Cables
To optimize load-sharing in parallel operation, external power circuits must be “symmetrical”:
Power input and output cables must have same length and identical cross-sections.

SmartSlot for APC Silcon 240-320kW UPS
A UPS system alone provides excellent protection from brief power problems. However, during
an extended power outage an unattended computer system will eventually shut down due to
battery capacity exhaustion. To prevent data corruption when the UPS shuts down, the
computer must be informed by the UPS of impending shut down and take appropriate filesaving measures. This important function is called UPS monitoring. The UPS's computer
interface port is the means by which your UPS communicates with a computer system.
