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.

Charge the battery
The UPS charges its battery whenever it is connected to utility power. The battery will charge fully during the first four
hours of normal operation. Do not expect full runtime during this initial charge period.
Connect Computer Interface Port (Optional)
Power management software and interface kits can be used with this UPS. Use only kits supplied or approved by the
manufacturer. If used, connect the interface cable to the 9-pin computer interface port on the back panel of the UPS.
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.
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.

Operating Instructions
Switch On — Switch Off
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 mode.
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 10.
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.
8
Load Bar Graph
85%
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).
67%
50%
33%
17%
Overload
When the UPS is overloaded (the connected loads exceed the maximum specified in the “maximum load” section under
Specifications, page 13), 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.
SmartTrim
The SmartTrim LED comes on to indicate that the UPS is compensating for a high voltage.
SmartBoost
The SmartBoost LED comes on to indicate that the UPS is compensating for a low voltage.
Low Battery
When the UPS is operating on-battery and the energy reserve of the battery runs low, the UPS beeps continuously until the
UPS shuts down from battery exhaustion or returns to on-line operation.
Cold Start
When the UPS is off and there is no utility power, use the cold start feature to apply power to the loads from the UPS’s
battery.
Note:
Cold start is not a normal condition.
Press and hold the on/test button until the UPS beeps.
Release the on/test button during the beep and the loads are powered within four seconds.

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 15, 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.
• Very high, low, or distorted line voltage.
Inexpensive fuel powered generators can distort
the voltage.
Reduce the load on the UPS by unplugging equipment and reset the
circuit breaker (on back of UPS) by pressing the plunger back in.
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 7, 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.
• 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 14, to eliminate common problems.
2.
Verify that no circuit breakers are tripped. A tripped circuit breaker is the most 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.
•
Refer to Appendix B: Transporting Your Smart-UPS, page 17, for important shipping information.
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.
