Remove all watches, rings or other metal objects. 2. Only use tools with insulated handles. 3. Do not lay tools or metal parts on top of battery or any terminals. 4. Wear rubber gloves and boots. 5. UNPACKING Determine if the battery is inadvertently grounded. If grounded, remove the source of ground. CONTACT WITH GROUNDED BATTERY CAN RESULT IN ELECTRICAL SHOCK! Inspect the UPS upon receipt. The box should contain the following: (a) UPS unit (b) User’s manual (c) USB A+B type cable *PowerPanel® Personal Edition software is available on our website. Please visit www.cpsww.com and go to the Software Section for free download. BATTERY REPLACEMENT PROCEDURE: 1. Turn off and unplug all connected equipment. 2. Turn the UPS off and unplug it from the AC power source. 3. Turn the UPS upside down. OVERVIEW 4. Remove the retaining screw. The LX1325G/LX1500G provides complete power protection from utility power that is not always consistent. 5. Slide the battery compartment cover (front panel) completely off of the unit. The LX1325G/LX1500G features 1500 Joules of surge protection. Both units provide long lasting battery backup 6. Remove the batteries from the compartment. during power outages with maintenance free batteries. The LX1325G/LX1500G ensures consistent power to your 7.

Install the replacement batteries by connecting the red wire (+) and black wire (-) to the same color connectors from the battery pack. electronic equipment during a utility power loss. 9. Put the batteries back into the compartment. 10. Slide back the battery compartment cover and tighten the retaining screws. 11. Recharge the UPS for 8-16 hours to fully charge the battery. AUTOMATIC VOLTAGE REGULATOR The LX1325G/LX1500G stabilizes inconsistent utility power voltage to nominal levels that are safe for equipment. Inconsistent incoming utility power may be damaging to important data files and hardware, but with Automatic Voltage Regulation (AVR), damaging voltage levels are corrected to safe levels. AVR automatically increases low utility power and decreases high utility power to a consistent and safe 110/120 volts. HOW TO DETERMINE THE POWER REQUIREMENTS OF YOUR EQUIPMENT 1. Ensure that the equipment plugged into the UPS does not exceed the UPS unit’s rated capacity (1325VA/810W for LX1325G; 1500VA/900W for LX1500G). If the rated capacities of the unit are exceeded, an overload condition may occur and cause the UPS unit to shut down or the circuit breaker to trip. Batteries are considered HAZARDOUS WASTE and must be disposed of properly. REMINDER: 2. There are many factors that can affect the amount of power that your electronic equipment will require. It is suggested that the load placed Most retailers that sell lead-acid batteries collect used batteries for recycling, as required by local regulations. on the battery outlets not exceed 80% of the unit’s capacity. DEFINITIONS FOR ILLUMINATED LED INDICATORS HARDWARE INSTALLATION GUIDE 1. Your new UPS may be used immediately upon receipt. However, after receiving a new UPS, to ensure the battery’s maximum charge capacity, it is recommended that you charge the battery for at least 8 hours. Your UPS is equipped with an auto-charge feature. When the UPS is CONDITION plugged into an AC outlet, the battery will automatically charge whether the UPS is turned on or off. Power ON Wiring Fault Alarm On Off Off On Off 2.
