1.0 INTRODUCTION
Manual Overview
This user manual has been written to provide basic information about Falcon FN Series -2TXI rackmount
models. The FN Series is a rugged, double conversion, "on-line" UPS. It has galvanic output isolation configured for single or dual voltage output(s). The FN Series provides continuous power conditioning and accepts
a wide range input voltage, while providing tight voltage regulation and a true sinewave output. The FN Series
UPS is specifically designed to protect sensitive computers, laboratory and industrial equipment against the
widest range of power problems. These problems include power failures, voltage sags, voltage surges,
brownouts, utility line noise, high voltage spikes, frequency variations, common mode noise, switching
transients, and harmonic distortion.
This manual also details unpacking, unit installation and the major features of the FN Series UPS, in addition
to detailed UPS operation, configuration and troubleshooting information.
The specifications section at the end of this manual provides detailed operating parameters and general
information on approvals and certifications.
FN Rackmount Overview
The Falcon FN Series UPS system consists of (1) 2U Rackmount UPS module, (1) 3U rackmount battery
module and (1) 2U rackmount output isolation transformer module. An optional input isolation transformer
module is also available. The modules are designed to be easily installed in a standard 19” equipment rack.
The equipment rack must be equipped with hard mounted shelves to properly support the weight of the modules. The modules do not support the mounting of equipment slide rails.
The FN Series front panel features a graphical LCD display, providing detailed operational information at a
glance. The display enables the user or field service engineer to easily monitor and troubleshoot localized
power problems, in addition to UPS operation. UPS control and programming are easily accessed using
pushbuttons located adjacent to the LCD display.
FN rackmount UPS, Battery and Transformer module rear panels have the following features and functions:
a. Circuit Breakers.
b. Hardwire input/output terminal blocks.
c. Maintenance Bypass Switch
The maintenance bypass switch is located behind a protective cover plate on the transformer box rear panel.
The UPS must be placed into manual static bypass mode prior to switching the maintenance bypass switch.
d. RS-232 Port - This port may be used to provide communications between the UPS and a network server
or other computer system. When used in conjunction with the supplied UPSilon software, remote UPS
monitoring and control are facilitated. The software will automatically save all open computer files and initiate
an unattended, orderly operating system shutdown in the event of a utility power outage. UPSilon supports
most MS Windows and Linux operating systems. An optional UNIX version is available through Falcon at an
additional cost.
e. Two Communications Option Board Expansion Slots - The slots support the installation of an
optional SNMP/HTTP Agent or contact closure interface boards. The SNMP/HTTP Agent board is a TCP-IP
addressable solution to remote UPS monitoring and management via LAN, WAN or the Internet. The agent
board is supplied with client software that will remotely shut down multiple servers or computers through the
Ethernet LAN. A CD containing software clients and a SNMP MIB II compliant MIB is provided that supports
most popular operations systems.
f. Two RJ45 connectors for connection of UPS parallel operation or remote maintenance
bypass interface cables. Used when UPS and transformer modules, or multiple UPS systems are
connected in parallel.
WARNING: Only FN rackmount models of identical power ratings may be connected in parallel. For example, a
FN3KRM-2TXI may only be connected in parallel with another FN3KRM-2TXI unit. The FN5KRM-2TXI may only be
connected in parallel with another FN5KRM-2TXI. The same is true for the FN6KRM-2TXI model.
5
g. One Local Maintenance Bypass Switch. The switch is located on the transformer module rear panel
and provides a manual means of placing the UPS into bypass mode to allow for servicing to be performed on
the UPS and battery modules.
2.0 FN RACKMOUNT UPS CIRCUIT DESCRIPTIONS
Galvanically Isolated Output
The FN -2TXI output isolation transformer module provides a galvanically isolated, 120/240Vac, hardwire output. To meet UL and code requirements, a dedicated electrical panel should be provided by your electrical
contractor or electrician. The FN -2TXI output configuration can be configured for a 120Vac, 208, 220, 230, or
240Vac output. It may also be configured for a dual voltage or 120/240Vac split-phase hardwire output. This
configuration allows for the use of a standard electrical panel and readily available branch rated circuit breakers It also simplifies the distribution to 240Vac and 120Vac loads. The outputs of up to four FN -2TXI units
may be connected in parallel. Please refer to pages 12-13 of this manual for wiring details.
Additionally, the FN galvanic output isolation in conjunction with a derived neutral greatly reduces common
mode noise and ground loops.
Input & Power Factor Correction
All FN rackmount models require a 2 wire plus ground type 208-240Vac power source, at 50 or 60Hz. Each
UPS module input must be connected to a dedicated circuit having a branch rated circuit breaker. If multiple
FN units are to be connected in parallel, care must be taken to verify the source electrical panel has enough
capacity. It must be rated to supply the total input power requirements of all FN Series units being connected,
including all optional extended battery chargers, in addition to any other circuits that may be connected to the
panel. Please have your electrical contractor review the FN datasheet located at the end of this manual and
perform a site survey several weeks in advance of the installation date.
While the FN Series UPS is operating from the utility power, it’s internal power factor correction circuit
converts utility AC power into regulated DC power for inverter use. The circuit also corrects the input current
to maintain the phase relationships between both current and voltage sine waveforms. this also minimize the
amount of current distortion that is reflected back to the utility line.
DC/DC Converter
The DC/DC converter utilizes energy from the batteries and boosts up the DC voltage to a level required by
the inverter. This allows the inverter to operate continuously at optimum efficiency and voltage. The converter
incorporates a patented circuit which reduces the amount of ripple current and EMI interference to the battery,
increasing the overall battery life.
DC/AC Inverter
In utility mode operation, the inverter utilizes the regulated DC output and converts it back into clean,
regulated sinewave AC power. When utility power fails, the inverter will receive its energy from the battery
through the DC/DC converter. In both modes of operation, the UPS inverter is online and continuously
generates clean, regulated AC output power to the load. The IGBT, PWM inverter is of a very robust design
and produces a pure sinewave output with a +/-2% voltage regulation. Having a very low output impedance, it
can supply the high current demands of high inrush and non-linear loads.
6
Battery Packs
FN rackmount battery modules utilize flame retardant batteries. They consist of (20) 12V, 7AH valve-regulated, sealed lead acid (VRLA) batteries in each module (Yuasa NP7-12). See replacement instructions on page
34.
To maintain the optimum battery life, the UPS should be installed in an environment with an ambient
temperature of 68ºF to 77ºF (20ºC to 25ºC). Due to the battery manufacturer specification, the FN Series UPS
batteries may be operated at 32ºF to 104ºF (0ºC - 40ºC) , but battery life will be substantially reduced if continuously operated at the higher temperature levels. Optional extended battery modules and external battery
charger modules are available through Falcon to extend the amount of battery runtime.
Internal Battery Charger
The internal battery charger located inside the UPS module utilizes energy from the utility power source to
continuously charge the UPS batteries. The charger operates in "constant power" mode. The UPS batteries
are being charged whenever the UPS is plugged in, turned on and operating from utility power. The internal
UPS battery charger output is rated at 1.9 amps.
Static Bypass Function
NOTE: Bypass power will only be available If the bypass input is connected at the time of UPS
installation.
A manual static bypass pushbutton is located on the FN front control panel. When the UPS is operating from
utility in the normal utility mode on-line state, depressing this button will cause the UPS to transfer to bypass.
Depressing the bypass button again will return the UPS to normal inverter operation.
Automatic Bypass Transfers
The FN Series UPS module will automatically switch to bypass mode under the following conditions: To
energize the connected load when the UPS is first turned on; encounters an overload; encounters an over
temperature condition; or upon a UPS failure condition. Should any of these events occur, the UPS will
automatically transfer to bypass mode, sound an audible alarm and provide a "bypass" indication on the UPS
module LCD display.
Output Filter
As with the input filter stage, the output filter maintains conducted (EMC) and RFI levels below FCC Class A
limits.

8.0 MAINTENANCE
The FN Series UPS requires very little maintenance. The batteries are located inside the battery module and
consist of (20) Yuasa 12V, 7AH or equivalent, sealed, VRLA, maintenance-free, lead-acid batteries.
Batteries must be kept recharged to prevent excessive self-discharging, which may result in their
premature failure. When connected to the battery module, the UPS will continuously recharge the batteries when plugged in and turned on. When not in use, batteries must be recharged every 6 months
to keep your warranty valid.
1. The UPS and Battery Care
Keep the area around the UPS clean and dust free. If the area around the UPS becomes very dusty, clean it
with a vacuum cleaner. To assure the full 3-5 year battery life, keep the UPS battery module at an ambient
temperature of 77ºF (25ºC). Other than replacement at three to five years of service, no other battery
maintenance is required.
2. Storing the UPS and Batteries
When storing the UPS for any amount of time, it is recommended to connect the battery module and turn on
the UPS for at least 24 hours, every four to six months to ensure full recharging of the batteries. This will prevent excessive battery self-discharge.
3. When to Replace Batteries
We suggest the battery pack(s) be replaced every 3-5 years for FN units that are operated and maintained in
a 77ºF (25ºC) environment. Higher temperature operating environments will decrease the battery life.
Typically, if the UPS is installed in a 104ºF (40ºC) or above operating environment, the batteries will need to
be replaced once a year.
In order to assure the performance of the FN Series UPS, check the battery every two to three months by
performing a UPS self-test. If at any time the UPS LCD panel displays the weak or defective battery icon or
error code, the batteries need replacing. Contact the Falcon Electric Service Department to order replacement
batteries.
4. Battery Replacement
Battery replacement inside the battery module must be performed by a qualified service technician. Contact
Falcon service when battery replacement is required.
NOTE!
NEVER ATTEMPT TO REPLACE THE BATTERY PACKS WHILE THE UPS IS IN
BATTERY MODE.

9.0 PARALLEL MODE OPERATION
9.1 How to configure FN rackmount models for transformer module, parallel or N+1 mode
operation.
Up to (4) like kVA FN model UPS units may be connected to their respective transformer modules and/or in
parallel, in single UPS increments, to provide a single 3-24kVA UPS output a true N+1 redundant output. This
is accomplished by connecting each UPS to be paralleled, wired to a single utility source rated for the combined UPS load. The UPS outputs should be connected together. A licensed electrician can provide the hardwire output connections and circuit. Each individual UPS output must have a branch rated circuit breaker as
specified prior, installed between the UPS output and load.
FN models have two special bus connectors located on the UPS rear panel that supports
interconnection of the transformer module and/or paralleled UPS units. (1) parallel UPS interface kit must be
purchased from Falcon for each UPS to be paralleled. The cable kit is shipped with each transformer module
inside the shipping container. The interface kit contains (1) daisy chain bus cable (3076), (1) wrap around bus
cable (3077), detailed installation instructions and assorted hardware. The Falcon part number for the kit is
UA88385.
9.2 How to connect the Battery Module to the UPS module.
1. Open the battery connector cover plate from the UPS module rear panel and connect the supplied
red, black and green battery cable connectors to the respectively colored mating connectors on the
UPS module.
2. On the battery module rear panel verify the battery circuit breaker is in the off position. Next, open
the top battery connector cover plate. Connect the red, black and green connectors on the opposite
side of the battery cable to the respectively colored mating connectors on the battery module. Turn
on the battery module circuit breaker. The UPS may now be powered up.
3. To add a more battery modules, remove the lower cover plate on the first module and connect a the
supplied battery cables to this connector on the previous battery module.

10.0 ENVIRONMENTAL
10.1 Recycling the Used Battery Packs
NEVER discard the UPS module, the UPS battery module, the transformer module or batteries in the trash.
Contact your local recycling or hazardous waste center for information on proper disposal of the used battery
pack and batteries. The entire spent battery packs may be returned to the Falcon Service Center at the end
user’s expense for recycling. Prior to returning the spent battery pack(s), please call the Falcon Service
Center and obtain a Return Materials Authorization (RMA) number.
NEVER dispose of batteries in a fire, as batteries will explode.
NEVER dispose of used batteries or the UPS in the trash or a landfill as it is a violation of federal and state
laws. The UPS and batteries must be recycled. For UPS and battery recycling information, please contact
Falcon Service for the name and address of the nearest battery recycling facility.
NEVER open or mutilate the battery or batteries. Released electrolyte is harmful to the skin and eyes. It may
be toxic. A battery can present a risk of electrical shock and burns due to their high short circuit current
capability.
