Safety
Electrical Warnings
Do not work alone under hazardous conditions.
High current through conductive materials could cause severe burns.
Do not work alone under hazardous conditions.
High current through conductive materials could cause severe burns.
Do not handle any metallic connector before the power hs been disconnected.
When grounding cannot be verified disconnect the equipment from the utility
power outlet before installing or connecting to other equipment. Reconnect the
power cord only after all connections are made.
Check that the power cord(s), plug(s), and socket(s) are in good condition.
Replacement of fuses or other parts must be with identical types and ratings.
Substitution of nonidentical parts may cause safety and fire hazards.
In order to maintain compliance with the EMC directive for products sold in
Europe, output cords attached to the UPS should not exceed 10 meters in length.

Installation
Mount the Automatic Disconnect Switch on the Wall
Do not operate the UPS where there is excessive dust or the temperature or humidity are outside the specified
limits.
The Automatic Disconnect Switch enclosure has side vents. To ensure adequate air flow in and around the unit
there must be 1” (2.5 cm) of space on the right and left sides of the enclosure.
Mount the Automatic Disconnect Switch enclosure on the wall using screws appropriate for the weight of the
unit and the mounting surface material.
Install the Mounting Brackets on the Automatic Disconnect Switch Enclosure
When securing the mounting brackets to the enclosure
two screws must be used in each bracket.
Utility Power Connections
Installation must be performed by a qualified electrician.
Adhere to all local, state, federal, and/or National Electric
Code (NEC) regulations regarding location, permits and
electrical wiring.
Install an approved 20 A high magnetic circuit breaker on the
input side of the Automatic Disconnect Switch.

Operation
Reset/Test: Functionality of this control is dependant upon Automatic Disconnect Switch status.
Primary Status
• The primary Automatic Disconnect Switch is supplying power to the cable system. The Local Power LED
will be illuminated. The Reset/Test button will do nothing.
• When the primary Automatic Disconnect Switch is not supplying power to the cable system the Remote
Power LED will be illuminated. The Automatic Disconnect Switch will perform a test to measure the
output voltage from the local FRP.
Secondary Status
• The secondary Automatic Disconnect Switch is supplying power to the cable system. The Local Power
LED will be illuminated. The secondary Automatic Disconnect Switch will momentarily disconnect the
local power from the cable system allowing the primary system to supply power. If the primary system
begins to supply power, the secondary system will remain disconnected. If the primary system fails to
supply power, the secondary system will immediately begin supplying power to the cable system.
• When the secondary Automatic Disconnect Switch is not supplying power to the cable system the Remote
Power LED will be illuminated. The Automatic Disconnect Switch will perform a test to measure the
output voltage from the local FRP.
Local 63 V Fault: Green LED indicates:
• The FRP/FLM output is outside the specified range during a test.
• The output failed while the Automatic Disconnect Switch was supplying power.
Primary/Secondary Select: This control is used to establish the Automatic Disconnect Switch as the primary
or secondary power source for the cable system.
Primary: Green LED indicates that the Automatic Disconnect Switch is the primary power source.
Secondary: Green LED indicates that the Automatic Disconnect Switch is the secondary power source.
220 V Normal: Green LED indicates that 220 V input is present and within specified limits.
Cable Modem
The cable modem functions only when power is supplied by the Automatic Disconnect Switch to an FRP. If the
FRP fails the cable modem will continue to function.
