Important Safety Messages
Read the instructions carefully to become familiar with the equipment before attempting to install, operate, service or
maintain the UPS. The following special messages may appear throughout this manual or on the equipment to warn of
potential hazards or to call attention to information that clarifies or simplifies a procedure.
The addition of this symbol to a Danger or Warning product safety label indicates that an electrical hazard
exists which will result in personal injury if the instructions are not followed.
The addition of this symbol to a Warning or Caution product safety label indicates that a hazard exists that
can result in injury and product damage if the instructions are not followed.
Informatio n
DANGER
DANGER indicates a hazardous situation which, if not avoided, will result in death or serious
injury.
WARNING
WARNING indicates a hazardous situation which, if not avoided, could result in death or serious
injury.
CAUTION
CAUTION indicates a hazardous situation which, if not avoided, could result in minor or moderate
injury.
NOTICE
NOTICE is used to address practices not related to physical injury.
Safety and General Information
• Adhere to all national and local electrical codes.
• All wiring must be performed by a qualified electrician.
• Changes and modifications to this unit not expressly approved by APC could void the warranty.
• This UPS is intended for indoor use only.
• Do not operate this UPS in direct sunlight, in contact with fluids, or where there is excessive dust or
humidity.
• Be sure the air vents on the UPS are not blocked. Allow adequate space for proper ventilation.
• For a UPS with a factory installed power cord, connect the UPS power cable directly to a wall outlet. Do not
use surge protectors or extension cords.
• The equipment is heavy. Always practice safe lifting techniques adequate for the weight of the equipment.
• The batteries are heavy. Remove the batteries before installing the UPS and external battery packs (XLBPs),
in a rack.
• Always install XLBPs at the bottom in rack-mount configurations. The UPS must be installed above the
XLBPs.
• Always install peripheral equipment above the UPS in rack-mount configurations.
• Additional safety information can be found in the Safety Guide supplied with this unit.
Deenergizing safety
The UPS contains internal batteries and may present a shock hazard even when disconnected from the branch
circuit (mains). Before installing or servicing the equipment check that the:
• input circuit breaker is in the OFF position.
• internal UPS batteries are removed.
• XLBP battery modules are disconnected.
Electrical safety
• For models with a hardwired input, the connection to the branch circuit (mains) must be performed by a
qualified electrician.
• The protective earth conductor for the UPS carries the leakage current from the load devices (computer
equipment). An insulated ground conductor is to be installed as part of the branch circuit that supplies the
UPS. The conductor must have the same size and insulation material as the grounded and ungrounded
branch circuit supply conductors. The conductor will typically be green and with or without a yellow stripe.
• The UPS input ground conductor must be properly bonded to protective earth at the service panel.
• If the UPS input power is supplied by a separately derived system, the ground conductor must be properly
bonded at the supply transformer or motor generator set.

Battery safety
• When replacing batteries, replace with the same number and type of batteries as originally installed in the
equipment.
• Batteries typically last for two to five years. Environmental factors impact battery life. Elevated ambient
temperatures, poor quality utility power, and frequent short duration discharges will shorten battery life.
Batteries should be replaced before end of life.
• Replace batteries immediately when the unit indicates battery replacement is necessary.
• Schneider Electric uses Maintenance-Free sealed Lead Acid batteries. Under normal use and handling, there
is no contact with the internal components of the battery. Over charging, over heating or other misuse of
batteries can result in a discharge of battery electrolyte. Released electrolyte is toxic and may be harmful to
the skin and eyes.
• CAUTION: Before installing or replacing the batteries, remove jewelry such as wristwatches and rings.
High short circuit current through conductive materials could cause severe burns.
• CAUTION: Do not dispose of batteries in a fire. The batteries may explode.
• CAUTION: Do not open or mutilate batteries. Released material is harmful to the skin and eyes and may be
toxic.
General information
• The UPS will recognize as many as 10 external battery packs connected to the UPS.
Note: For each XLBP added, increased recharge time will be required.
• The model and serial numbers are located on a small, rear panel label. For some models, an additional label
is located on the chassis under the front bezel.
• Always recycle used batteries.
• Recycle the package materials or save them for reuse.
FCC Class A radio frequency warning
This equipment has been tested and found to comply with the limits for a Class A digital device, pursuant to part 15
of the FCC Rules. These limits are intended to provide reasonable protection against harmful interference when the
equipment is operated in a commercial environment. This equipment generates, uses, and can radiate radio
frequency energy and, if not installed and used in accordance with the instruction manual, may cause harmful
interference to radio communications. Operation of this equipment in a residential area is likely to cause harmful
interference in which case the user will be required to correct the interference at his own expense.
