Minuteman® Endeavor Series Uninterruptible Power Supply
The Endeavor Series is rich in standard features and optional
accessories allowing users to order “off the shelf” products
and yet retain the flexibility previously only available as a
special order product.
Standard features ONLY offered on the Endeavor Series:
of critical devices during an extended blackout is handled
through the Endeavor’s load shedding function. Each model
in the Endeavor Series comes with two independentlycircuited receptacle segments. Through the use of
Minuteman’s SentryPlus™ software by communicating with
the UPS through an Ethernet/SNMP connection, users can
either turn on, off, or reset each segment independently
of the other. By reducing the load amount on the UPS, the
runtime of critical devices connected to the UPS battery
can be extended.
• Three-year non-prorated warranty (including batteries)
• RoHS compliancy for all models
• Rack/Tower/Wallmount installation formats
• Free SentryPlus software included
Communication Features
• Independent battery pack chargers
Simultaneous RS-232, USB and Ethernet/SNMP
• Concurrent communications via RS-232, USB and Communications: The Endeavor Series provides users with
optional Ethernet/SNMP card
Electrical Characteristics
Output Power Factor: All Endeavor models up to 2000VA
come with a 0.8 output power factor that increases the watt
capacity of the units. Offering larger capacities in smaller
UPS VA sizes reduces the overall cost of the UPS solution for
a specific load requirement. The 3000VA model comes with
a 0.7 power factor that provides 2,100 watts capacity in a
3.5 inch (2U) rack space.
Output Voltage: All units in the Endeavor Series produce an
electrical signal that does not vary from nominal voltage
by more than 2%. Tightly regulating the output voltage
increases the quality of power to connected equipment
adding to its life expectancy, which lowers the total cost of
ownership to users.
Total Harmonic Distortion (THD): THD is the distortion of a
normal AC electrical signal when connected loads near
their capacity. This distortion can create internal heat buildup on sensitive equipment not designed to allow for these
altered AC signals. The Endeavor Series maintains an output
AC signal, at all times and with all loads, within 2% of a true
sine wave.
the ability to communicate with the UPS simultaneously
through three separate protocols: RS-232, USB and Ethernet/
SNMP. Users can now directly connect, and manage, the
UPS from multiple stand-alone or networked computers.
By including concurrent Ethernet communications (SNMP
or direct IP address), the Endeavor UPS Series provides
detailed monitoring and management for many various
Other Features
RoHS Compliancy: Recognizing the benefit of being
environmentally conscious, Para Systems developed
the Endeavor Series to be compliant with the European
Economic Unions directive on the reduction of hazardous
substances (RoHS) in electronic equipment.
Manual Self-Testing: The Endeavor Series is designed to
proactively notify users of any impending faults or failures with
the UPS. This allows for preemptive repair or replacement of
components or batteries preventing unexpected downtime
caused by the UPS.
Dedicated EPO Port: This direct access port allows users to
perform an immediate remote shutdown of the UPS in case
of emergency or when access to the UPS is restricted or

Battery Characteristics
Extended Runtime Capability: All models in the Endeavor
Series come standard with internal batteries. To protect
critical devices through extended blackouts, Endeavor UPS
uses external battery packs that can be daisy-chained in
unlimited quantities to provide a virtually unlimited amount
of runtime.
Fast Battery Recharge: With independent chargers in each
Endeavor battery pack offered, the maximum recharge
time for depleted batteries is 8 hours, no matter how many
battery packs are installed on a UPS. Without these chargers,
if more than one battery pack is used recharging batteries
could take more than an entire day.
Battery Pack Models: Because each UPS has different battery
requirements to support its maximum load capacity, the
Endeavor Series uses battery packs sized to match each
UPS model:
• ED1000RM2U and ED1000RMT2U – EDBP24XL
• ED1500RM2U and ED1500RMT2U – EDBP48XL
• ED2000RM2U and ED2000RMT2U – EDBP48XL
• ED3000RM2U and ED3000RMT2U – EDBP72XL
Battery Technology: All Endeavor units and battery packs use
valve-regulated lead-acid batteries (VRLA). All are safe for
any type of freight transport: air, sea or ground. For added
protection, all Endeavor UPS models ship with these batteries
disconnected. A “Quick Installation Guide” is included in
each Endeavor box to detail how to connect the batteries
before turning the units on.
Hot-Swappable Batteries: All models in the Endeavor line offer
battery replacement, through the front panel of the UPS,
without having to remove the UPS from service. Connected
loads are protected from voltage anomalies and spikes and
surges while the batteries are being replaced.
LED Front Panel Display
The LED indicators on the
Endeavor Series provide
many diagnostic details
about the condition of the
UPS as well as the utility input
power. These indicators can
provide visual confirmation of
anticipated battery failures or
UPS faults so that preventative
maintenance can be
performed on the UPS. The Endeavor UPS also comes with
a LED meter that measures both connected load capacity
and battery runtime capacity. The LED panel is designed so
that it can be oriented vertically or horizontally depending
on the installation format of the UPS.
