Introduction
This Uninterruptible Power Supply (UPS) is designed to prevent blackouts, brownouts, sags and surges from reaching
your computer and other valuable electronic equipment. This UPS also filters out small utility line fluctuations and isolates
your equipment from large disturbances by internally disconnecting from the utility line, while supplying power from its
internal batteries until the utility line returns to safe levels.
While running on battery, an internal alarm will sound (periodic beeps). The on/test button may be pressed to silence the
UPS alarm.
If the utility power does not return, the UPS will continue supplying power to the connected equipment until exhausted. A
continuous beeping will sound two minutes before the UPS’s final low battery shutdown. If using a computer, you must
manually save your files and power down before the UPS turns itself off, unless you are using PowerChute interface
software that provides automatic, unattended shutdown.
Unpacking
Inspection
Inspect the UPS upon receipt. Notify the carrier and dealer if there is damage. The packaging is recyclable; save it for
reuse or dispose of it properly.
Contents
The shipping package contains the UPS, its batteries, and, for some rack mount units, rails to hold the UPS in a rack. The
5000 VA unit ships with the batteries separate from the UPS case.
How to Unpack the SU 5000 UPS

990-7031D, Revision 5 5/01
Installing your UPS requires five steps:
1.
1.
Position the UPS in the desired location. For rack mount units this may include installing the rails into the rack.
2.
Connect the batteries. All UPSs ship with the batteries disconnected. In 5000 VA units you must also install the
batteries in the UPS.
3.
Connect equipment to the UPS.
4.
Power up the UPS.
5.
Install PowerChute® UPS monitoring software and accessories.
Position the UPS
Placement
Install the UPS in a protected area that is free of excessive
dust and has adequate air flow. Do not operate the UPS
where the temperature and humidity are outside the
specified limits.
Warning!
Changes or modifications to this unit not expressly approved by the party responsible for compliance could void the
warranty.
Installing Rack Mount Units
The rack mount UPS comes with standard 19” (46.5 cm) rack mount brackets (ears) installed. The 3000 and 5000 VA models
of the UPS are supplied with rails to support them in the rack. These supports may be used to ease installation for 19” or
23” racks. The supports are available as an accessory for the 1400 VA model. Contact your dealer or APC at the number
listed under APC Contact Information, page 21, for more information. See Appendix B: Types of Racks and Mounting
Hardware, page 26, for more information and installation instructions.
Caution:
Two or more people are required to install the 3000 and 5000 VA models due to their weight. The 5000 VA models must
be put into position before the batteries are installed.
Installing the UPS in a rack involves a four-step process:
1.
Determine the location of the UPS in the rack.
2.
Install the mounting rails in the rack.
3.
Load the UPS into the rack.
4.
Attach the mounting brackets to the rack.
This section describes each step in detail.
Determine the Location of the UPS in the Rack
UPSs are heavy. Select a rack location sturdy enough to handle the weight. Mount the UPS at or near the bottom of the
rack.
Select a rack location with adequate air flow that is free from excessive dust. Ensure that any air vents on the sides of the
UPS are not blocked. Do not operate the UPS where temperature or humidity are outside the limits listed under
Specifications, page 19.
Two additional sets of bracket holes, shown below at asterisks (*), are located on the sides of all rack mount UPS models
except the 5000 VA. These holes allow mounting the brackets with a three inch or six inch setback. Move the mounting
brackets back if desired to optimize the esthetic or physical requirements of the rack. The 5000 VA unit cannot be mounted
in a setback position since it requires the full depth of the rack.

Secure the connector’s screws to complete the connection.
Caution:
DO NOT use a standard serial interface cable to connect to the Computer Interface Port on the UPS. Standard serial
interface cables are incompatible with the UPS connector. Use the cable provided with your UPS.
Connect Ground Leads to TVSS Connector (Optional)
The UPS features a TVSS connector for connecting the ground lead on transient voltage surge-suppression (TVSS)
devices such as telephone and network line protectors. The TVSS connector provides grounding through the UPS’s
power cord ground conductor. To make a connection to the TVSS connector, loosen the screw and connect the surge
suppression device’s ground lead. Tighten the screw to secure the lead.
Battery Pack Connector (Optional)
Use the battery pack connector (on units that have one) to connect the optional external battery pack. See
Appendix A: XL Information, page 23, for instructions.
Voltage Sensitivity
The UPS detects line voltage distortions such as spikes, notches, dips, and swells, as well as distortions caused by
operation with inexpensive fuel-powered generators. By default, the UPS reacts to distortions by transferring to on-battery
operation to protect the loads. Where power quality is poor, the UPS may frequently transfer to on-battery operation. If
the loads can operate normally under such conditions, battery capacity and service life may be conserved by reducing the
sensitivity of the UPS.
To reduce UPS sensitivity, press the configuration button on the rear panel. Use a pointed object such as a pen to
press the button. Press it once to set the UPS’s sensitivity to reduced. Press it again to set the sensitivity to low. Press
the button a third time to reset normal sensitivity.

With the UPS plugged in, press and release the large upper on/test button to supply power to the loads. The loads are
immediately powered while the UPS beeps and performs a self-test.
Press and release the small, lower off button to turn off power to the loads. It may be convenient to use the UPS as a
master on/off switch for the protected equipment.
Note:
Whenever the UPS is plugged in and utility voltage is present, the charger maintains battery charge.
The on-line LED illuminates when the UPS is supplying utility power to the loads.
On Battery
During on-battery operation, the on-battery LED illuminates and the UPS sounds an audible alarm consisting of four beeps
every 30 seconds. The alarm stops when the UPS returns to on-line operation.
Battery Charge Bar Graph
100%
80%
60%
40%
20%
The 5-LED display on the right of the front panel shows the present charge of the UPS’s battery as a percentage of
the battery’s capacity. When all five LEDs light, the battery is fully charged. The top LED goes out whenever the
battery is not 100% charged. When the lowest LED is flashing, the battery can supply less than two minutes of
run time for the load. The battery capacity threshold is shown in the figure to the left (values are not listed on the
UPS).
Shutdown Mode
In shutdown mode the UPS stops supplying power to the load, waiting for the return of utility power. If there is no
utility power present, external devices (e.g., servers) connected to the computer interface or the accessory slot can
command the UPS to shut down. This is normally done to preserve battery capacity after the graceful shutdown of
protected servers. The UPS will scroll the front panel indicators sequentially in shutdown mo de.
Self-test
The UPS performs a self-test automatically when turned on, and every two weeks thereafter (by default). Automatic selftest eases maintenance requirements by eliminating the need for periodic manual self-tests.
During the self-test, the UPS briefly operates the loads on-battery. If the UPS passes the self-test, it returns to on-line
operation.
If the UPS fails the self-test it immediately returns to on-line operation and lights the replace battery LED.
The loads are not affected by a failed test. Recharge the battery overnight and perform the self-test again. If the replace
battery LED is still on, replace the battery using the procedure in Replacing the Battery, page 11.
Replace Battery
If the battery fails a self-test, the UPS emits short beeps for one minute and the replace battery LED illuminates. The UPS
repeats the alarm every five hours. Perform the self-test procedure to confirm replace battery conditions. The alarm stops
when the battery passes the self-test.
Load Bar Graph
85%
67%
50%

The 5-LED display on the left of the front panel represents the power drawn from the UPS as a percentage of total
capacity. For example, if three LEDs are lit, the load is drawing between 50% and 67% of the UPS’s capacity. If all
five LEDs light, thoroughly test your complete system to make sure that the UPS will not become overloaded. In
the graph to the left the load capacity threshold is listed next to the LED (values are not listed on the UPS).
Overload
When the UPS is overloaded (the connected loads exceed the maximum specified in the “maximum load” section under
Specifications, page 19), the overload LED comes on and the UPS emits a sustained tone. The alarm remains on until the
overload is removed. Disconnect nonessential load equipment from the UPS to eliminate the overload.

Utility Voltage Bar Graph
This UPS has a diagnostic feature that displays the utility voltage. With the UPS plugged into the normal utility
power, press and hold the on/test button to see the utility voltage bar graph display. After approximately four
seconds the 5-LED display on the right of the front panel shows the utility input voltage. Refer to the figure to the
left for the voltage reading (values are not listed on the UPS).
The display indicates that the voltage is between the displayed value from the list and the next higher value. For example,
with three LEDs lit, the input voltage is between 208 and 223 VAC.
If no LEDs come on and the UPS is plugged into a working AC power outlet, the line voltage is extremely low.
If all five LEDs come on, the line voltage is extremely high and should be checked by an electrician.
Note:
The UPS starts a self-test as a part of this procedure. The self-test does not affect the voltage display. The utility voltage
bar graph has a margin of error of ± 4 % .

Troubleshooting
Use the chart below to solve minor UPS installation problems. Contact APC Technical Support Staff for assistance with complex UPS
problems. See APC Contact Information, page 21, for a location near you.
Problem and Possible Cause
Solution
UPS will not turn on.
• ON button not pushed.
Press the ON button once to power the UPS and the load.
• UPS not connected to AC power supply.
Check that the power cable from the UPS to the power supply is
securely connected at both ends.
• UPS input circuit breaker tripped.
Reduce the load on the UPS by unplugging equipment and reset
the circuit breaker (on back of UPS) by pressing the plunger back
in.
• Very low or no utility voltage.
Check the AC power supply to the UPS with a table lamp. If very
dim, have the utility voltage checked.
• Battery not connected properly.
Confirm the battery connections.
UPS will not turn off.
• Internal UPS fault.
Do not attempt to use the UPS. Unplug the UPS and have it
serviced immediately.
UPS operates on-battery although normal line voltage exists.
• UPS’s input circuit breaker tripped.
Reduce the load on the UPS by unplugging equipment and reset
the circuit breaker (on back of UPS) by pressing the plunger back
in.
• Very high, low, or distorted line voltage.
Inexpensive fuel powered generators can distort
the voltage.
Move the UPS to a different outlet on a different circuit.
Test the input voltage with the utility voltage display. If acceptable
to the load, reduce the UPS’s sensitivity. Refer to Voltage
Sensitivity, page 8, for instructions.
UPS beeps occasionally.
• Normal UPS operation.
None. The UPS is protecting the load.
UPS does not provide expected backup time.
• The UPS’s battery is weak due to recent outage
or is near the end of its service life.
Charge the battery. Batteries require recharging after extended
outages. Also, they wear faster when put into service often or
when operated at elevated temperatures. If the battery is near the
end of its service life, consider replacing the battery even if the
replace battery indicator is not yet lit.
• The UPS is overloaded.
Check the UPS’s load display. Unplug less needed equipment, such
as printers.
Front panel indicators flash sequentially.
• The UPS has been shut down by remote control.
None. The UPS will restart automatically when utility power
returns.
All indicators are lit and UPS emits a constant beeping.
• Internal UPS fault.
Do not attempt to use the UPS. Turn the UPS off and have it
serviced immediately.
All indicators are off and UPS is plugged into wall outlet.
• The UPS is shut down and the battery is
discharged from an extended outage.
None. The UPS will return to normal operation when the power is
restored and the battery has a sufficient charge.
The replace battery light is lit.
990-7031D, Revision 5 5/01
20
• Weak batteries.
Do another self test to see if it clears.
• Replacement batteries not connected properly.
Confirm the battery connections.
Service
If the UPS requires service do not return it to the dealer!
Follow these steps:
1.
Review the problems discussed in Troubleshooting, page 20, to eliminate common problems.
2.
Verify that no circuit breakers are tripped. A tripped circuit breaker is the mo st common UPS problem!
3.
If the problem persists, call customer service or visit the APC Internet Website (www.apcc.com).
4.
•
Note the model number of the UPS, the serial number, and the date purchased. A technician will ask you to
describe the problem and try to solve it over the phone, if possible. If this is not possible the technician will issue
a Return Merchandise Authorization Number (RMA#).
•
If the UPS is under warranty, repairs are free. If not, there is a repair charge.
Pack the UPS in its original packaging. If the original packing is not available, ask customer service about obtaining a
new set.
Note:
Pack the UPS properly to avoid damage in transit. Never use Styrofoam beads for packaging. Damage sustained in
transit is not covered under warranty.
5.
Mark the RMA# on the outside of the package.
6.
Return the UPS by insured, prepaid carrier to the address given to you by Customer Service.

Appendix A: XL Information
When used with external battery packs, the extended run (XL) UPS offers longer run times than a standard UPS and extra
load protection during battery replacement. When replacing the batteries either in the UPS or battery pack(s), the UPS can
still respond to a power disturbance using the remaining connected batteries. Please refer to the main sections of this
User’s Manual for basic information about the UPS. This appendix provides additional information needed to use
extended run versions of the UPS.
XL Installation
This figure shows the location of the battery pack connector on the 5U SU1400RMXL (top), the
SU3000 tower unit (right), the 5U SU3000RM (bottom), and the SU1000XL tower unit (left). Some
UPS models have the battery pack connector in different positions, but the size and shape of the
connector is always the same.
Battery pack connectors are color coded as shown in the table below. Battery pack connectors
are also keyed to prevent improper connection. Do not try to install battery packs with
connectors that are a different color from the battery pack connector in the UPS.

Smart-UPS Battery Protocol
23
990-7031D, Revision 5 5/01
Smart-UPS XL models are not designed to know how many external battery packs are connected to them. You must
program the Smart-UPS XL with the appropriate number of external batteries in one of four ways.
Note:
It is important to follow these instructions. The number of batteries affects the run time calculations which
Smart-UPS performs when it is running on battery power.
Use the Smart-UPS Battery Pack Utility (BATTPACK)
This program can be used with DOS or at a Microsoft® Windows DOS prompt.
BATTPACK cannot be used with a DOS emulator or VDM (virtual DOS machine) like those in Windows 95, Windows 98,
or Windows NT.
The APC UPS Link cable must be used to communicate to the UPS. There are two black cables which can be used; part
numbers 940-0024C or 940-1524C.
Note:
For the purposes of this formula, 1 rack mount battery pack (SU48RMXLBP) = 2 stand-alone battery packs.
At the DOS prompt, type: battpack com[X] [Y] where:
[X] represents the available serial port that Battery Pack Utility uses to access the Smart-UPS.
[Y] represents the number of external battery packs.
For example: C:> battpack com1 4
The black cable is attached to communication port 1. There are four external battery packs. The program confirms that the
update is successful.
Use PowerChute® plus Version 5.x for Windows 95, Windows 98, Windows NT
PowerChute plus 5.x for Windows NT is compatible with NT 3.5.1 SP5, NT 4.0 Workstation (at least SP1), or NT 4.0 Server
(at least SP1).
Install the software per the instructions on the CD.
After rebooting the computer, access the PowerChute plus graphical user interface.
1.
Click on Configuration.
2.
Click on UPS Operating Parameters.
3.
Adjust the External Battery Pack field to the appropriate number of external batteries.
4.
Click OK.
Use the Terminal Program to Change the Number of External Battery Packs
Terminal is used in Windows 3.1x, Windows for Workgroups, and Windows NT 3.51.
1.
EXIT out of the PowerChute plus Server. In the case of Windows NT, the UPS Service must be stopped.
2.
Go to: Program Manager > Accessories > Terminal. Double-click on the Terminal icon.
3.
Select the COM port to which the black-colored interface cable is attached as the Connector.

Appendix B: Types of Racks and Mounting Hardware
This appendix describes the hardware required for the different types of racks and describes the type of racks that may be
used in your industry. All APC rack mount units are shipped ready for 19-inch wide EIA/IEC rack cabinets. Some rack
mount UPSs ship with rails included, otherwise, the rails are available as an option. Refer to the instructions included with
the rails when mounting the UPS.
Racks
There are different types of racks:
Equipment Rack - usually an open rack with threaded mounting holes or no threaded holes
APC Netshelter, IBM (Vero, others) - enclosed rack with square holes
Dell, Compaq (Rittal) - enclosed rack with square holes
HP Rack - enclosed rack with round holes
These racks differ in the methods required for mounting equipment. They may have threaded
holes (hardware not included), round holes (require clip nuts), or square holes (require cage nuts).
See page 3 for examples of clip and cage nuts.
Telecomm Rack - open rack with two poles / four poles and threaded round holes (hardware not
supplied by APC).
Notes:
Remove batteries to reduce UPS weight.
For larger, heavier units, installation requires two people.
Check the type of rack you have against the hardware required for mounting in the table below.

Appendix C: Transporting Your Smart-UPS
Follow these guidelines if you need to ship the UPS to another location. These guidelines apply whether you are
transporting the UPS alone, rack mounted in an equipment cabinet, or installed in a system.
Caution:
Always DISCONNECT THE BATTERIES before shipping the UPS to avoid damage during
transport. (U.S. Federal Regulation requires that batteries be disconnected during shipment.) The
batteries may remain in the UPS; they do not have to be removed.
This requirement applies whether the UPS is shipped alone or installed in an equipment rack or
system.
Note:
Graphics are not drawn to scale. They are shown for reference only.
The battery compartment is accessed from the front panel of the UPS. The SU5000 unit, shown as an example, has four
battery packs (each with four individual batteries).
1. Remove the front bezel by grasping the finger clips on the side
of the bezel and carefully loosening the four (4) snaps.
2.
Use a screwdriver or coin to remove the two battery door screws
and open the door.
3.
Disconnect the front battery pack. Grasp the white cord on the
first front set of batteries and pull firmly to disconnect the
connector from the battery compartment.
4.
Tuck the white cord (that serves as a handle for the connector)
neatly to the side.
5.
Disconnect the remaining battery packs by repeating steps 3 and
4.
6.
Once all the batteries have been disconnected, close the battery
door and replace the two (2) screws removed in step 2.
7.
Align the front bezel with the opening on the front of the UPS
and snap it into place.
Note:
Remember to connect the batteries once the UPS has arrived at its destination.
