4. PRODUCT OVERVIEW AND TECHNICAL DESCRIPTION
4.1 Description
The APC Models MX28B-1200/2400 represents a family of stand-alone -48V dc power plants.
Through the use of modular power and distribution box frames, a system is configurable in such
a manner that it will support most typical applications within the specified current range of up to
3600 amps without special application engineering or assistance.
The system is designed to start as a base unit capable of supplying 1200 amps of –48V dc power
in a single box frame with integrated power distribution breakers and an advanced control and
monitoring module. Standard distribution for a power bay includes up to 48 plug-in circuit
breakers (1 to 100 amps), or large panel-mounted circuit breakers (250 to 700 amps).
Expansion of the base unit is accomplished by adding power frames and distribution frames on
either side of the base unit The distribution box frames come with a variety of circuit breaker
and fuse options. Power expansion of the 1200 amp plant to a 2400 amp plant only requires the
addition of splice plates to the existing bus structure.
An optional low voltage disconnect (LVD) can be provided on either the battery or the load side
in each power bay. Systems incorporating power distribution frames need an external LVD unit
A 1200 amp MX28B is shown in. Figure 4-1. A block diagram is shown in Figure 4–2.

inch or 1 ¾ inch centers for connecting two-hole
battery cable lugs. Refer to Figure 4-3.
A battery disconnect breaker is required external
to this equipment. The power plant can monitor
auxiliary contacts from this breaker. Battery
temperature compensation is available. APC’s
master control unit, in conjunction with the
optional temperature monitor sensor cable, is used
to implement this function.
4.7 DC Distribution
A standard power distribution module within the power
box frame contains two 24-position plug-in circuit
breaker columns, providing -48V power for customer
loads. Each breaker column is connected at its center to
the -48V dc bus, with each side having an ampacity of
300A. Connections for the -48V dc loads are located
directly to the side of the corresponding breaker. A
typical load connection would utilize a #6 AWG wire
with a two-hole lug on 5/8-inch centers, attached with
standard #10-32 mounting screws.
The load return cables for each circuit breaker section
connect to a return bus directly opposite the circuit
breakers. These return buses contain patterns for 28
two-hole #10-32 lugs on 5/8-inch centers, and 14 twohole ¼”-20 lugs on a double-pattern of either 5/8-inch
or 1-inch centers. Figure 4-4 shows the power plant’s dc

5.2 AC Service and Ground Connections
***** WARNING *****
Ensure that all of the dc and external ac circuit breakers are in the OFF position prior to
connecting service to the power plant. Confirm that all voltages have been removed
including any battery sources before proceeding.
The MX28B dc power plant requires the
supply of 208/220/240V ac, singlephase, 50/60 Hz power through
individual external 20-amp two-pole
circuit breakers to the ac input terminal
block connections for each rectifier in
the system. The ac wiring, from the ac
input terminal block connections to the
hot-pluggable ac input connector for
each rectifier, is factory installed.
The ac input enclosure, located at the top
rear of the MX28B housing, is provided
with nine ¼ -inch conduit pilot holes in
the top plate (Figure 5-2). Remove the
ac input enclosure from the box frame in
order to punch or drill the appropriate
number of conduit openings for the
conduit size(s) desired. Do not leave the
ac input enclosure in place when punching
or drilling holes in order to prevent metal
pieces from falling into the power system.

5.3 Battery Connections
5.3.1 Battery Disconnect
An external circuit breaker (not supplied) is required in the negative line (located at the battery
end) to protect the cables from the battery to the MX28B dc power plant. The power plant can
monitor auxiliary contacts from this breaker. Selection of a circuit breaker for a battery string
should take into account maximum battery short circuit current and cable sizing.
5.3.2 Cable Sizing Considerations
The battery cable(s) should be sized
sufficiently large to limit the voltage drop from
the MX28B dc power plant to the battery
during charging per system design
requirements. The cable(s) must also carry the
full load current during battery operation. If
assistance is required to determine the
necessary cables for the application, contact
your sales representative or APC.
5.3.3 Connecting the Cables
The battery cable connections are located at the
top rear of the unit as shown in Figure 5-4.
The battery positive (return bus) and battery
negative (-48V bus) buses each provide four
sets of 3/8”-16 holes on a double pattern oneinch and 1 ¾-inch centers for connecting twohole battery cable lugs. Connect the battery
cables as applicable using 3/8”-16 bolts (not

5.5 Rectifier Installation
The APC Model MRF28H54BV rectifiers are shipped in separate containers. Follow the
procedure below to install a rectifier.
1) Remove the rectifier from its shipping container.
2) Remove the rectifier retaining screw from the shelf position where the rectifier is to be
installed.
3) Slide the rectifier into the shelf between the guides until it is fully seated.
4) Fasten the rectifier in place with the rectifier retaining screw.
Since all adjustments are made from the system control unit, no rectifier adjustments are
necessary.
NOTE: All “FLOAT” – “BOOST/EQUALISE” switches (one is located on the front of
each rectifier in the system) must be set to “FLOAT” to allow the MX28B to
control the output voltage properly.
5.6 Multiple Frame Assembly
5.6.1 Power Bus Connections
Installations with multiple box frames requires splicing of the power buses. The MX28B-1200 /
2400 family of power systems and distribution bays are designed so that the power buses can be
connected from bay to bay through the use of simple splice plates. Figure 5-5 shows the
connection between two box frames for the normal 2500 amp bus work.

5.6.2 Control Wiring
Cables for controlling and monitoring the rectifiers and circuit breakers/fuses must be run from
expansion frames to the control unit in the base frame. There are three basic cables used for
these functions:
•= The AWA-0970 ten-pin ribbon cable connector handles serial communications for rectifier
reporting and control. This cable connects to the J1 connector of the DC/DC converter
PCB’s (EAA-0111) in each power box frame.
•= Circuit breaker reporting in extension power and distribution bays is communicated back to
the control unit through the AWA-0972 cable. This cable is connected to J15 on the control
unit interface PCB in the base unit and runs to connector J2 on the Alarm Extension PCB
(EAA-0072) in the remote bay. Additional bays are connected via the same cable, which
connects up to four Alarm Extension PCB’s.
•= Fuse reporting is routed from the Fuse Sense PCB (ADV-1204) to the control unit via cable
AWA-0967.
Refer to Figure 5-6 for a pictorial representation of multi-bay cable connection. Figure 5-7
shows the information as a wiring diagram.

5.7 Alarm Connections
The alarm connections for all rectifiers, breakers, and fuses are factory pre-wired. The MX28B
dc power plant, however, permits the user to program the system alarms in various ways. A
Printed Circuit (PC) board designated “EAA-0075” is mounted in the space above the master
control unit and provides terminal block connection points for alarm outputs and alarm inputs
(Figure 5-8). These cage-clamp terminal blocks are operated by pushing back the lever,
inserting the wire and then releasing the lever to clinch the connection. Recommended wire size
is #28 AWG to #20 AWG.

5.7.2 Alarm Outputs
There are eight alarms available that provide outputs via Form “C” relay contacts. The last two
of these are pre-assigned as the Minor and Major alarm outputs. The Major relay is energized
(NO-C contacts closed) during normal (non-alarm) operating conditions; all the other relays
energize when an alarm condition occurs. The other six outputs are initially designated as
“Relay 1” through “Relay 6” (the user may assign more meaningful names if desired). The
various system alarm conditions can be assigned to any of the eight alarm outputs.
Table 5-3 shows the alarm output connection designations. Connectors J1 and J2 are located on
the alarm interface board mounted in the space above the control unit. The relay contacts should
only be used to switch resistive loads of 0.5 amperes or less at 60 volts or less.

5.8.2.2 Circuit Breaker Load Connections
Connections for the -48V dc loads are located directly to the side of the corresponding breaker.
A typical load connection would utilize a #6 AWG wire with a two-hole lug on 5/8-inch centers,
attached with standard #10-32 mounting screws.
The load return cables for each circuit breaker section connect to a return bus directly opposite
the circuit breakers. These return buses contain patterns for 28 two-hole #10-32 lugs on 5/8inch centers, and 14 two-hole ¼”-20 lugs on a double-pattern of either 5/8-inch or 1-inch
centers.
5.8.2.3 Power Distribution Fuse Load Connections
Connection for the –48V dc loads are made to L-shaped
landing pads connected to the distribution side of the
fuse. All the fuses within a given box frame have a
common bus connection to –48V dc. Load side
connections utilize a double-hole lug on 1 ¾ -inch
centers and return connections are made to the common
return bus bar at the top of the cabinet using 1-inch or 1
¾ -inch lugs (Figure 5-10).

5.10.2 System Parameters Verification/Adjustment
The MX28B system control unit is delivered with pre-programmed parameter default settings.
A complete listing and description of all system configuration parameters as well as displayable
system status and information is provided in Section 6. Read Section 6 to gain an understanding
of and how to use the operational features provided by the MX28B dc power plant. As a
minimum, the following parameters should be verified and adjusted, if required, before
connecting batteries or loads to the power plant:
1) Battery Float Voltage - default = -54.00V dc (Check the manufacturer’s
recommendation for the batteries being used in the system.)
2) Battery Maximum Recharge Rate - default = 50A. (Bellcore specifications
recommend a maximum charging rate of battery capacity (in Ampere-hours) divided by
20 hours; check the manufacturer’s recommendation.)
3) System Voltage - measurement ≅ -54.00V dc (This is a measurement by the system of
the dc output bus voltage.)
4) LVD Option - default = “Enable” (If the MX28B does not have an LVD installed, this
should be changed to “Disable”.)
5) Rectifier Information - Check the rectifier information displays to verify that all
rectifiers installed can be viewed on the control unit display and that no rectifier alarms
are active.
Section 6 provides location information for these parameters and how to make changes if
required.
5.10.3 Full System Power Up
To complete a full system power up, perform the following steps
1) Turn OFF all the circuit breakers that supply ac power to the rectifiers in the MX28B dc
power plant.
2) Turn on the external circuit breaker from the battery to the power plant.
3) Turn on all the circuit breakers that supply ac power to the rectifiers in the MX28B dc
power plant.
4) Load circuit breakers and distribution fusses may now be turned on and inserted as
required.

6.1 User Interface
The MX28B control unit provides a user interface designed with a hierarchical menu that can be
viewed on the 32-character display by “navigating” with the “ ” (left), “ ” (right), “ ” (up),
and “ ” (down) arrow keys located on the front panel. The selected item on the display is
identified by the cursor cycling beneath its characters.
MX28B
+
STATUS ALARMS
SYSTEM MODULES BATT PIN OEM
Arrow Keys move Display Window across main
menu items and down into additional menu
selections
Figure 6-1 Navigating the Menu
The “M” (Modify) key and the arrow keys are used to set parameters and text to customize the
system operation for a specific application. Items that can be modified have "m+" in the upper
right corner of the display. If a security level higher than the one presently set is required to
modify the parameter, "s+" is displayed instead of “m+”. Status, alarms, and information
screens have "+" in the upper right corner of the display (or “#” in the case of rectifier
information screens) and cannot be modified. When ac power is initially applied, there is a 60second period during which no alarms are reported.
Pressing the "M" key on the front panel will change the "m+" to "M+", indicating that the
parameter can now be changed using the arrow keys. Some parameters can be changed to other
predefined selections by pressing the up or down arrow keys to display an alternative selection.
These parameters can be recognized after the “M” key is pressed by the cursor cycling beneath
the characters of the selection. For other parameters, such as text and most numeric values, after
the “M” key is pressed the cursor will be displayed under an individual character. The right or
left arrow key is used to position the cursor below the character to be changed and the up or
down arrow key is used to "spin" the digit or letter to the desired value. When the desired
changes have been made to an individual parameter screen, the “M” key is pressed again; the
“M+” changes back to “m+” and the new entry is stored in memory.
If the user plans to make any changes to system parameters, the first item that should be verified
or entered is the appropriate password for the security level required for the parameters to be
modified. Security level 2 enables modification of all variable system parameters, level 1
MX28B-1200/2400

MX28B-1200 PRODUCT MANUAL
Revision B
permits modification of some parameters; no security is required for viewing status items. The
security level password is entered through the “PIN” screen. If no front panel keys are pressed
for 60 minutes, the active password reverts to “0000” and “█APC█” begins to move about the
display. Pressing any key returns the display to normal; the password must be re-entered if
system parameters require changes. The default passwords for level 1 and level 2 are “1111”
and “2222”, respectively. There are no alternate passwords or “backdoors” for accessing the
system. A forgotten password may require a new master controller board, at customer expense.
System control parameters are stored in non-volatile memory and will not be erased when power
is removed for the master control unit. However, if a new program EPROM is installed or a
different device model selected, the system control parameters will be re-initialized to the
factory default settings.
Eleven LEDs are provided on the front panel of the control unit to indicate system status. Three
LEDs grouped together vertically provide overall system status; they are “MAJOR”, “MINOR”,
and “NORMAL”, indicating the presence of a major alarm, a minor alarm, or normal operation.
The other eight LEDs correspond to the active state of each of the alarm output relays and are
labeled “ALM1”∙∙∙“ALM6”, “MIN”, and “MAJ”.
6.2 External Alarm Inputs
The four external alarm inputs (also referred to as “Input Relay Alarms”) can be assigned a
priority and routed or “mapped” to alarm output relays. Available assignments are “Ignore”,
“Major”, “Minor”, and “Relay 1” ∙∙∙ “Relay 6”. Screens for making the assignments are
located at [SYSTEM/IN-RLY/RLY-MAP]. This special menu notation is explained with an
example in section 6.4
A user defined name or “alias” may also be assigned to each of these input alarms. Screens for
making these assignments are located at [SYSTEM/IN-RLY/ALIAS]. For information on
wiring connections to these inputs refer to Section 5.7.1.
6.3 Alarm Output Relays
There are eight alarm output relays designated Relay 1 through Relay 6, Minor, and Major,
respectively. Various system parameters may be programmed to activate any of these alarm
relays when set thresholds are exceeded or specific conditions occur. The first six relays can
also be assigned a priority and routed or “mapped” to other output alarm relays. Available
assignments are “Ignore”, “Major”, “Minor”, and “Relay 1” ∙∙∙ “Relay 6”. Screens for making
these assignments are located at [SYSTEM/OUT-RLY/RLY-MAP]. This feature makes it
possible for a single alarm condition to activate multiple alarm output relays including the Minor
or Major alarm relay. A user defined name or “alias” may also be assigned to each of the eight
output relay alarms. Screens for making these assignments are located at [SYSTEM/OUTRLY/ALIAS]. For information on making wiring connections to the alarm output relays refer
to Section 5.7.2.
6.4 Parameter Locations, Descriptions, and Default Values
The location, description, and factory programmed default value for each of the MX28B system
parameters is found in Table 6-1. The table also shows all of the status and information screens
with typical displays. The location of a parameter screen is shown in brackets, for example:
[SYSTEM/IN-RLY/RLY-MAP]. To find the parameters that can be accessed in this category,
starting from the main menu screen, do the following:

2) Press the down arrow key once.
3) Use the right arrow key to position the cycling cursor below “IN-RLY”.
4) Press the down arrow key once; the cursor will be cycling below “RLY-MAP”.
5) Press the down arrow key (repeatedly if necessary) until the desired parameter screen is
displayed (there are eight parameter screens in this category).
6) After making any desired changes (refer to Section 6.1 for the procedure), to return to the
main menu press the up arrow key repeatedly.
If a parameter requires a level 1 or level 2 security access to permit changes to it, the security
level will be found in braces, i.e. {2}, in the “PARAMETER” column of Table 6-1.
