Safety Notice
The SmartSlot Measure-UPS II UPS accessory is intended solely for
use in supplementary surveillance of equipment. APC does not recommend this product for life or property protection. APC will not knowingly sell Measure-UPS II for use in such applications. APC disclaims
all liability arising out of improper use of Measure-UPS II as
described herein.
Hardware and Software Compatibility
SmartSlot Measure-UPS II requires an APC device with a SmartSlot
as a host. This can be a UPS equipped with a SmartSlot, or a SmartSlot Expansion Chassis in combination with a UPS that supports the
Expansion Chassis.
Measure-UPS II also requires some means of reporting its data. This
can be any one or a combination of the following:
• Call-UPS II™ Remote UPS Management Device
• PowerChute® Plus UPS power management and diagnostic
software
• PowerNet SNMP adapter
• PowerNet SNMP agent.
Note: Any SNMP management system can read and use MeasureUPS II information when it is installed in conjunction with an APC
PowerNet SNMP adapter or PowerNet SNMP agent. PowerNet
SNMP Manager provides a high level graphical user interface for use
within popular network management systems. Contact APC at the
number on the back cover of this manual for more information.
2. Installation
Use the following procedure to install SmartSlot Measure-UPS II:
1. Install and configure any software or hardware that will be used
with Measure-UPS II for data reporting (see software and hardware compatibility above).
2.
Using figure 2 as a guide, install Measure-UPS II in the host
SmartSlot. Use a #2 Phillips head screwdriver to remove the host
device SmartSlot cover plate. Install Measure-UPS II. Replace the
cover plate screws. Note: Measure-UPS II is sensitive to static
electricity. Handle Measure-UPS II by the end plate only. Do not
touch the exposed printed circuit board. While it is not possible to
install Measure-UPS II upside down, it is possible to damage it in
the attempt. Note that the edges of the printed circuit board align
with the locating slots in the sides of the SmartSlot. The SmartSlot may be oriented horizontally or vertically in the host device.
The host device may be on or off during installation.
3.
Connect the supplied probe to probe connector 1 on MeasureUPS II. Note: probe connector 2 is not used in Measure-UPS II.
Place the probe where desired using the supplied hook and loop
fasteners, if needed. Note: The Measure-UPS II probe is designed
for use in a controlled environment. Place it in an area that is
within the environment limits set in the specifications (see section
9.) The location must be free from direct sunlight, excessive
moisture, and dust.
4.
Figure 2, SmartSlot installation
Do not:
• Cover any of the ventilation holes on the probe
• Immerse the probe or place it where dew can be expected to
form
• Use the probe in an environment with chlorine gas or insecticides.
5.
The contact monitoring connection is a two piece design. Connect
contact closure-type sensors to the removable screw terminal
block using the information in section 4 as a guide. The connector
accepts wire sizes from 14 AWG (1.6 mm2) to 26 AWG (.4
mm2). Strip the wire insulation 0.25" (6 mm). Connect the screw
terminal block to the Sensor Zones connector of Measure-UPS II.
See figure 3 below for a completed installation.
Figure 3, completed installation
3. Operation Check
1.
Confirm the basic operation of Measure-UPS II. Use the data
reporting system (see hardware and software compatibility in section 1) to confirm that Measure-UPS II is working. With the probe
(temperature or temperature and humidity) connected to probe
connector 1, Measure-UPS II should transmit temperature or temperature and humidity values to the reporting system. Note:
Reported humidity values will be less than 2% RH when using the
temperature only probe. If the probe is not properly connected
both temperature and humidity readings will be very low.
2.
Confirm contact sensing by activating each sensor in turn according to the sensor manufacturers recommendation. Use the data
reporting system to verify that each sensor operates as planned.

Connection Information
Measure-UPS II supports normally open and normally closed loop
systems, and allows mixing of normally open and normally closed
sensors on any zone. See the figures below for more information on
using multiple sensors in one zone and for system hookup.
Note: Do not cross connect sensors used with Measure-UPS II with
those of any other system.
In order to avoid receiving alarm indications on unused zones, install a
jumper wire between the COM and NC connectors for each unused
zone.
To use more than one sensor on a zone, follow the diagram below.
Connect normally open sensors in parallel and normally open sensors
in series.
See below for a typical hookup. Note that in this example system zone
1 is a normally closed motion zone with power for the passive infrared
detector supplied by Measure-UPS II. Zone 2 is a normally open zone.
Zone 3 is a combination normally open and normally closed zone.
Zone 4 is not used.
5. Sensor Selection
Measure-UPS II may be used with any dry contact closure type sensors. The Measure-UPS II sensor inputs are designed to monitor circuits that have no voltage potential of their own. Connection of
Measure-UPS II sensor inputs to any circuit other than a dry closure
type will void the warranty and may result in damage to Measure-UPS
II.
In general, any normally open (NO) or normally closed (NC) dry contact sensor may be used with Measure-UPS II. Such sensors include:
• Magnetic contact switches
• Window foil
• Tamper switches
• Heat detectors
• Water sensors
• Pressure sensors
Additionally, Measure-UPS II provides a source of power for those
detectors that need power. These types include:
• Passive infrared (body heat) detectors
• Smoke sensors
• Photo relay detectors
Measure-UPS II provides 12 Vdc at up to 60 mA at pins 1
and 2 of the Sensor Zones connector for sensors that require power.
For more information in what sensors may or may not be used with
Measure-UPS II, please call the APC PowerFax Interactive Fax System at the number on the back cover of this manual. Request document number 1310. Or call technical support. See the back cover for
more information.
6. Maintenance
Measure-UPS II requires periodic maintenance. Confirm contact sensing using the sensor manufacturers recommended intervals and methods. Use the data reporting system to verify that each sensor operates
as planned.
Clean the temperature (or temperature and humidity) probe whenever
there is a visible buildup of dust. Gently brush or vacuum off the dust.
Do not blow any type of compressed gas into the probe.
7. Troubleshooting
Problem
Possible Cause
Solution
Constant Alarm on
one or more unused
zones.
Unused zones not
jumpered.
Connect a wire
between the COM
and NC terminals of
all unused zones (see
section 4).
Constant low temperature and humidity readings.
12 Vdc supply (pin
1) shorted to ground
or overloaded.
Correct short
circuit—examine all
sensors that use the
12 Vdc power
supply.
No communication
with UPS or accessories.
Measure-UPS II has
failed.
If removing Measure-UPS II from the
host cures the communication problem
for other accessories,
call technical support at the number
on the back cover of
this manual.
Incorrect sensor
readings.
Improper sensor
wiring.
Correct sensor
wiring—see
section 4.
Always reports very
low temperature
and/or humidity.
Probe not connected
properly.
Connect probe
properly—see
section 2.
8. Service
If the SmartSlot Measure-UPS II requires service:
1. Check Measure-UPS II using the troubleshooting chart in section
7 before calling for service.
2.
Note the model number of the Measure-UPS II, the serial number,
and the date purchased. See the back cover of this manual for the
correct telephone number and call customer service. A technician
will ask you to describe the problem and help solve it over the
phone, if possible, or will give you an RMA#. If customer service
is not available in your area, call the dealer that sold the SmartSlot
Measure-UPS II. If Measure-UPS II is under warranty, repairs are
free. If not, there will be a charge for repair.
3.
It is important to pack the SmartSlot Measure-UPS II properly to
avoid damage in transit. Damage sustained in transit is not covered under warranty.
4.
Include a letter with your name, RMA#, address, copy of the sales
receipt, description of the trouble, your daytime phone number,
and a check (if necessary).
5.
Mark the RMA# on the outside of the package. The factory cannot accept any package without this marking.
6.
Return Measure-UPS II and its probe by insured, prepaid carrier
to the address given by the technician.
