Connecting the host computer Connecting the battery leads WARNING: To prevent personal injury from electric shock or damage to the equipment, remove the battery lead labels, and verify that the ERM circuit breakers are in the Off position. CAUTION: Only one communications port can be connected to the host computer. Connecting more than one will result in unexpected UPS behavior. If an option card is installed, the serial and USB communications ports are automatically disabled. Connect the UPS to a host computer using either the USB cable or the DB9 serial cable included with the UPS. Install HP Power Protector on the host computer. See the HP website (http://www.hp.com/go/rackandpower) to download the latest version of HP Power Protector. NOTE: To install and configure the software, see the software user guide. The software user guide is available for download from the HP website (http://www.hp.com/go/rackandpower). Connecting the serial communications port CAUTION: Use only the computer interface cable supplied with the UPS to connect the communications port to the host computer. IMPORTANT: Power protector software requires the communications port to be appropriately cabled to the host computer. Connecting the USB communications port NOTE: Wire the connector block using stranded, nonshielded wire (AWG #22 - #18, or equivalent). Separate wire pairs are attached to a single, normally-open contact in a parallel connection. HP recommends using different colors for the positive and negative wires. If a connector becomes disconnected and is reconnected with reversed polarity, a REPO is initiated. To avoid REPO port disconnect: • Minimize wire strain while connecting the REPO port. • Avoid allowing the wires to hang in the rear of the UPS. • Use tie wraps and tie wrap blocks to secure the wires tightly to the rack and the rear of the UPS. Connecting the REPO port WARNING: The pins on the REPO port are polarity sensitive. Be sure to verify polarity while connecting the REPO port. For more information about the REPO port, see "REPO port" in the user guide. For information about verifying the REPO connection, see "Verifying the REPO port connection" in the user guide.
