Quick Installation Guide
NOTE: If battery is placed in
storage, charge the battery every
six months if kept at -15°C to +29°C
(5°F to 85°F)—or every three
months if kept at 30°C (86°F) or
higher.
4. Starting the UPS
After the battery is fully
charged:
• Turn on the UPS by pressing
the On/Off button (see
Figure 1 below). LED 1 should
be illuminated (green),
indicating the UPS is
operating in Normal Mode.
• Plug the loads into the
battery backup sockets on
the rear of the UPS.
CAUTION: Do not connect a
laser printer to the UPS.
7. Setting up Liebert
MultiLink software
To start using the Liebert
MultiLink software:
• Install the software.
6. Connecting the network
surge protection
5. Connecting the loads
The UPS has three battery
backup sockets that provide
power when the UPS operates
on battery.
There is also one surge-only
socket (see Figure 2 below).
The UPS has two network cable
jacks for network line (see
Figure 2 below).
• Connect a single-line
network cable into the
network surge protection IN
jack on the rear of the UPS.
• Connect a network cable
from the OUT jack on the
rear of the UPS to a port on a
PC or network device such
as a router.
UPS CONTROLS AND CONNECTIONS
See the Liebert MultiLink
quick-start guide or user
manual for installation
instructions.
• Connect one end of the USB
cable (supplied) to the USB
port on the rear of the UPS.
Connect the other end to a
USB port on the computer.
See the Liebert MultiLink
user manual for operating
instructions.
NOTE: Vertiv recommends
connecting the USB cable directly
to the computer WITHOUT using a
USB hub.
