Overview
Extended Runtime Modules
The UPS supports up to two ERMs (extended runtime modules). Each ERM consists of two
battery packs in a 4U chassis. When operating at the recommended 80 percent load, one ERM
will extend the available UPS runtime by up to 15 minutes.
For more information, refer to the HP website at www.hp.com.
Power Distribution Units
The UPS supports up to two PDUs. A PDU offers power surge protection and allows you to
distribute power among units.
Remote Emergency Power Off Port
The UPS includes an isolated REPO port. When properly wired, the REPO feature allows the
power at the UPS output receptacles to be switched off from a remote location. To use this
feature, the REPO port must be connected to a remote, normally open switch (not supplied).
When this switch is closed, the UPS immediately disconnects power to its loads. The REPO
switch is used in conjunction with a main disconnect device that removes the AC source from
the input of the UPS. To power down the entire network in the event of an emergency, the
REPO ports of multiple UPS units can be connected to a single switch.
IMPORTANT:
1-6
•
The REPO port meets the requirements of NFPA Articles 645-10 and 645-11 for a Disconnecting
Means.
•
If the remote switch is closed, the REPO feature immediately powers down protected devices and
does not utilize the orderly shutdown procedure initiated by power management software.
•
The REPO feature shuts down UPS units operating under either utility or battery power.
•
If the UPS was operating on battery power when the remote switch was closed, no power will be
available to the devices until utility power is restored and the UPS has been manually powered up.
•
To restore power to the load after the REPO feature is activated, press the On button after the AC
source is reconnected to the UPS.
•
Pressing and holding the On button without utility present would normally initiate a battery start and
the UPS would assume the load. However, if the On button is pressed and a REPO is detected,
battery start is inhibited and the UPS will not be able to assume the load. The electronic module
fans will spin and the Alarm LED and an audible alarm will be active as long as the On button is
held.

Operation
Turning on the Main Circuit Breaker
After a qualified electrician has properly wired the UPS to utility power and has installed all
electronics modules, turn on the AC mains at the service panel. All LEDs come on for three
seconds as part of the system initialization. Each electronics module turns on in sequence
(with approximately 10 seconds between modules), synching up with the utility power. The
Utility LED rapidly flashes green during Startup mode.
After all electronics modules have synchronized, the UPS enters Standby mode, indicated by
the Utility LED slowly flashing green. The system will begin charging the batteries, but will
not assume the load. The system will remain in Standby mode until the UPS On command is
received.
NOTE: The time required to transition from Startup mode to Standby mode can range from 45 seconds
to several minutes, depending on the state of charge of the batteries.
Charging the Batteries
When the UPS is in Standby mode, allow the batteries to charge before putting the UPS into
service. The battery status can be monitored using the LCD display. Refer to the section,
“Displaying the Battery Charge Data,” in Chapter 3 for information on how to view current
battery charge on the LCD display.
IMPORTANT: The battery modules will charge to:
•
80 percent of their capacity within 3 hours.
•
100 percent of their capacity within 48 hours.
Charge the batteries for at least 24 hours before supplying backup power to your devices.

Operation
Because a portion of the self-test requires battery power, the self-test will not be initiated if
the batteries are less than 90 percent charged. If the UPS detects a problem, the
Alarm LED (4) will be solid red (see Figure 2-3), and the UPS sounds an audible alarm.
NOTE: Refer to Chapter 5, “Troubleshooting,” for information on what to do if the self-test detects a
problem.
Audible Alarms
The UPS sounds an audible alarm to warn of a problem.
To identify the problem, select the Status option from the LCD Main Menu. The LCD will
display X Alarms on the top line, where X is equal to the number of alarms. The bottom row

Operation
IMPORTANT: Although the Test/Alarm Reset button silences the audible alarm, the condition that
caused the alarm still exists. Refer to Chapter 5, “Troubleshooting,” for information on what to do if the
UPS detects an alarm condition.
The silencing of the alarm is based on the current set of alarms that is present when the button is
pressed. If the alarm set changes and at least one alarm condition still exists, the audible alarm
reactivates.
If the condition that caused the alarm is a utility power failure, the alarm is silenced shortly after utility
power is restored.
Placing the UPS in Bypass Mode
This mode can be enabled by any of the following events:
•
Using the Bypass switch on the rear panel
•
Overload conditions
•
Manual removal of an electronics module when in Operate mode
NOTE: HP does not recommend enabling Manual Bypass mode when the Bypass LED is flashing
(Bypass mode not available).
Shutting Down the System
To shut down the system:
1. Place the UPS in Standby mode by pressing the Standby button for four seconds. The
load relays open and the Utility LED begins to flash slowly.
NOTE: Pressing the Standby button for seven seconds reboots the system. The system recovers
to Standby mode.
2. Disconnect the AC mains by opening the switch or circuit breaker at the utility panel.

LCD Configuration and Status
Matching the Utility Voltage
Use configuration parameters to select the UPS voltage range (see Table 3-1).
•
If the utility voltage is within this range, the UPS supplies utility power to the output
receptacles.
•
If the utility voltage is outside this range, the UPS supplies battery power to the output
receptacles.
•
If the utility voltage frequently varies outside the operating range, update the UPS
configuration to match.
NOTE: When you set the voltage through the LCD panel (as described in the “Setting the Voltage”
section of this chapter), you are setting the UPS output voltage

Battery Maintenance
Charging Batteries
When connected to utility power, the UPS automatically charges the batteries. No user
intervention is required while the UPS is in use. Refer to the section, “Care and Storage of
Batteries,” in this chapter for information on keeping the batteries charged while the UPS is
in extended storage.
Determining When to Replace Batteries
When the Alarm LED (1) is solid red, and the LCD displays either a Battery Needs Service or
Battery Test Failed alarm, you may need to replace the battery module. Depending on usage
and environmental conditions, the batteries should last three to six years.
1
Figure 4-1: Alarm LED
To verify the above alarms, initiate a UPS battery self-test to verify that battery replacement
is required. If the Alarm LED (1) is solid red and the alert displays on the LCD status menu,
replace the bad battery module as soon as possible.
Refer to the section, “Initiating a Self-Test,” in Chapter 2 for more information on initiating a
self-test.

Battery Maintenance
Obtaining New Batteries
New batteries may be required within 30 to 60 days when the Alarm LED is solid red and the
LCD displays either a Battery Needs Service or Battery Test Failed alarm. Obtain spare
batteries for the UPS when this occurs.
HP supplies spare battery modules for UPS R12000 XR models. The UPS spare battery kit
part number is 228288-001.
CAUTION: Because of the short shelf life of the battery, avoid storing a battery spare as a
backup. It is recommended that an inventory of spare batteries not be maintained onsite
unless a procedure to keep these batteries charged while in storage is implemented.
Replacing the Batteries
The batteries in the UPS are hot-swappable. Batteries may be replaced (hot-swapped) without
powering off the UPS if the UPS is not supplying battery power to devices. The Utility LED
will be solid green if the UPS is supplying utility power.
The UPS is provided with an internal lithium battery and a sealed lead-acid battery module.
There is a danger of explosion and risk of personal injury if the batteries are incorrectly
replaced or mistreated. Replacement is to be done by an HP authorized service provider using
the spare designated for the product. For more information about battery replacement or
proper disposal, contact your HP authorized reseller or HP authorized service provider.

Battery Maintenance
Testing the New Battery Module
After installing the new battery module, press the Test/Alarm Reset button. Refer to the
section, “Initiating a Self-Test,” in Chapter 2 for more information on initiating a self-test.
IMPORTANT: The UPS schedules the battery test, but will not execute the test until the batteries are at
least 90 percent charged.
If the installation has been successful, the Alarm LED will not be illuminated.
If the installation has not been successful, the Alarm LED turns red and the LCD menu
indicates an alarm. If this occurs, repeat the procedures in the “Replacing the Batteries”
section of this chapter, and check the battery terminal connections. If the Alarm LED is still
red, refer to Chapter 5, “Troubleshooting,” for more information on the cause of the alarm.
IMPORTANT: The batteries will charge to 80 percent of their capacity within approximately
three hours. Charge the batteries for 24 hours before using the UPS to supply backup power to devices.
The load may not be fully protected for 48 hours.
Conducting a Battery Commissioning Test
When replacing battery modules, it is recommended running a battery commissioning test.
This test will set a base line so that the UPS accurately displays battery run-time. Refer to the
section, “Setting the Hardware Configuration,” in Chapter 3 for instructions on enabling the
battery commissioning test.
NOTE: The battery commissioning test runs in the background. Once enabled, the test can take up to
three days to run.
Disposing of Used Batteries
The spare battery kit includes the instructions and packaging required to return used batteries
to the appropriate location for disposal.
Batteries, battery modules, and accumulators should not be disposed of
together with the general household waste. In order to forward them to
recycling or proper disposal, use the public collection system or return them
to HP, your authorized HP Partners, or their agents.

Battery Maintenance
Care and Storage of Batteries
To maximize the life of batteries:
•
Minimize the amount of time the UPS uses battery power by matching the UPS
configuration with utility voltage. Refer to the section, “Matching the Utility Voltage,” in
Chapter 3 for more information.
•
Keep the area around the UPS clean and dust-free. If the environment is very dusty, clean
the outside of the UPS regularly with a vacuum cleaner.
•
Maintain the ambient temperature at 25 C (77 F).
•
If storing a UPS for an extended period, recharge the batteries every six months:
o
o
— Connect the UPS to utility power.
— Allow the UPS to remain in Standby mode.
— Allow the UPS to charge the batteries for 24 hours.
— Update the Battery Recharge Date label.
CAUTION: Because of the short shelf life of the battery, avoid storing a battery spare as
a backup.
Pre-Failure Battery Warranty
The Pre-Failure Battery Warranty, standard on all UPS units, extends the advantage of a
three-year limited warranty by applying it to the battery before it actually fails. Specifically,
the Pre-Failure Battery Warranty ensures that when customers receive notification from
power management software that the battery may fail, the battery is replaced free of charge
under the warranty.
The highest standards in the industry are maintained, as evidenced by the Pre-Failure Battery
Warranty. This warranty is beneficial in at least two significant ways:
•
Reduced total cost of ownership
•
Reduced downtime
A Pre-Failure Battery warning is given 30 days prior to a battery failure. The warning is
indicated in one or both of the following ways:
•
An LED showing that the battery is low
•
Notification from power management software
This warning provides ample time to order a spare battery. To order a spare, go to
www.hp.com.

Troubleshooting
This chapter serves as a troubleshooting guide when problems occur with the UPS. Solutions
for main and electronics module alarms are provided, as well as general solutions for UPS
problems that occur both during and after startup.
LCD Alarm Troubleshooting
Table 5-1 lists the possible alarms of the main module or electronics modules. When these
alarms occur, the LCD displays the number and type of alarms. An audible alarm may also
sound. For each alarm listed in the table, an explanation of the cause is provided, as well as a
recommended action to take to resolve the problem.
As shown in Table 5-1, x Alarms on the first line of the LCD display means that one or more
alarms are present, with the variable x indicating the number of alarms. The type of alarm is
displayed on the second line of the LCD. In Example 5-1, three alarms are present. The

Part 15 of the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) Rules and Regulations has
established Radio Frequency (RF) emission limits to provide an interference-free radio
frequency spectrum. Many electronic devices, including computers, generate RF energy
incidental to their intended function and are, therefore, covered by these rules. These rules
place computers and related peripheral devices into two classes, A and B, depending upon
their intended installation. Class A devices are those that may reasonably be expected to be
installed in a business or commercial environment. Class B devices are those that may
reasonably be expected to be installed in a residential environment (for example, personal
computers). The FCC requires devices in both classes to bear a label indicating the
interference potential of the device as well as additional operating instructions for the user.
The FCC rating label on the device shows the classification (A or B) of the equipment.
Class B devices have an FCC logo or FCC ID on the label. Class A devices do not have an
FCC logo or FCC ID on the label. After the Class of the device is determined, refer to the
corresponding statement in the following sections.

Electrostatic Discharge
Preventing Electrostatic Damage
A discharge of static electricity from a finger or other conductor may damage system boards
or other static-sensitive devices. This type of damage may reduce the life expectancy of the
device.
•
To prevent electrostatic damage when setting up the system or handling parts, avoid hand
contact by transporting and storing products in static-safe containers.
•
Keep electrostatic-sensitive parts in their containers until they arrive at static-free
workstations.
•
Place parts on a grounded surface before removing them from their containers.
•
Avoid touching pins, leads, or circuitry.
•
Always be properly grounded when touching a static-sensitive component or assembly.
Grounding Methods To Prevent Electrostatic Damage
There are several methods for grounding. Use one or more of the following methods when
handling or installing electrostatic-sensitive parts:
•
Use a wrist strap connected by a ground cord to a grounded workstation or computer
chassis. Wrist straps are flexible straps with a minimum of 1 megohm ± 10 percent
resistance in the ground cords. To provide proper ground, wear the strap snug against the
skin.
•
Use heel straps, toe straps, or boot straps at standing workstations. Wear the straps on
both feet when standing on conductive floors or dissipating floor mats.
•
Use conductive field service tools.
•
Use a portable field service kit with a folding static-dissipating work mat.
If you do not have any of the suggested equipment for proper grounding, have a Compaq
authorized reseller install the part
For more information on static electricity, or assistance with product installation, contact your
authorized reseller.
