TOSHIBA
Standard Module Connections (cont’d)
If two modules are to be stacked on top of each other, they should
be interlocked to reduce the chances of the top module being
knocked over. Modules do not have to be stacked for the system to
operate. The following steps will guide the user through the process
of assembling and connecting the modules.
Step 1: Place the electronics module on top of
the battery module so that the six round feet on
the bottom of the electronics module fit into the
matching keyhole slots on the top of the battery
module.
Step 2: Slide the
upper unit forward.
This will cause the
two units to lock
together. In order to unlock the units, lift
up on the top module, and slide it back.
This will release the interlock (figure 3).
Step 3: Connect the input power cord
(figure 4) to the AC power source. If no
AC power source is available go to step 5.
Figure 3
Module Interlock
Step 4: Switch the input
breaker to the on position
(figure 1, page 9). Please note
that a battery fault will occur.
Step 5: Plug the battery cord
coming from the battery pack
into the blue battery plug
located on the back of the
electronics module (figure 4).
This will clear the fault from
step 4. Attention: If the
battery cord is not plugged into
the battery plug the UPS will
not be able to provide backup
power in the event of a loss of AC input power.

Starting the UPS System
Once the modules have been connected as shown in the preceding
section (UPS Connections, page 10) the UPS system is ready to be
started. There are two ways to start the system: from AC input
power (if present) or from batteries. If not already done, switch the
input breaker on (figure 1, page 9). If the “AC Input” LED is lit,
proceed on to “Starting when AC power is available”. If the LED is
not lit, there is no AC power available. If the unit is to be started
when AC power is not available proceed to “Starting on DC power.”
Starting When AC Power is Available
If the system is being started with AC input power the system is
started by switching the RUN/STOP switch to the RUN position
(RUN = I, STOP = 0). When the RUN/STOP switch is in the RUN
position both the “AC Input” and the “On Line” LEDs should be lit.
When the unit is started with AC input power it is advisable to allow
time for the batteries to fully charge before any load is connected
(see “Battery Recharge Time”, page 16).
12
TOSHIBA
Starting on DC Power
If no AC power source is available, or if the AC input power is
outside of the allowable range for voltage or frequency, the UPS can
be started from battery power. The length of UPS operation time on
battery power depends on the number of attached battery modules
and the amount of load the UPS is supporting. To start the UPS
from battery power follow these steps:
Step 1: Make sure the RUN/STOP switch is in the STOP position. If
the UPS is being started on DC power because the AC power is out
of range, the input breaker must be in the OFF position (figure 1,
page 9).
Step 2: Press the “Startup on Battery” button. The UPS will beep
indicating that AC power is not available and the Startup on Battery
mode has been activated.
Step 3: Switch the RUN/STOP switch to the RUN position. This
must be done within 5 seconds of the Startup on Battery mode
activation for the unit to startup using batteries.
Once the unit has started, the “On Line” LED will light, indicating that
the inverter is running and power is available at the output
receptacles. If the RUN/STOP switch is not switched to the RUN
position within those 5 seconds, the unit will return to shutdown
mode.
Stopping the UPS
There are two ways of turning the UPS off: switching from on line to
bypass mode, or completely shutting down.
Option 1: The first option is to place the UPS into bypass mode.
Bypass mode means that if there is AC power available, the UPS will
route power directly from the input source to the connected loads
without any conditioning. The UPS inverter is off during this state,
but the attached loads do not lose power during the transition. To
place the UPS into bypass mode, switch the RUN/STOP switch to
the STOP position. This mode is most often used manually during
maintenance and programming operations or automatically upon the
occurrence of an internal UPS fault. (For more information
concerning bypass mode see appendix E.)
Option 2: The other option is to turn the UPS off completely. This
means that in addition to the UPS’s inverter shutting down, all power
will be stopped to any equipment attached to the UPS. To shut
the UPS down completely switch the RUN/STOP switch to the STOP
position. Then switch the input breaker off (figure 1, page 9). Once
the input breaker has been switched off, all the LEDs should turn off.
(If the RUN/STOP switch is in the RUN position when the input
breaker is switched off, the unit will switch to battery backup mode.
The unit will continue to run for as long as the available battery
reserves can support the connected loads.)

Note 2: The level meter described in note 1 above also displays the remaining battery time when the unit is in backup mode. If the batteries are
fully charged when the unit switches to backup mode the 20% through 100% LEDs will light. As the batteries begin to discharge, the LEDs
starting from the top will blink rapidly then slowly and will then turn off as the battery time runs down. For example if the unit has been running on
battery power and there is 90% battery capacity remaining the 20% through 80% LEDs will be lit and the 100% LED will be blinking.
Note 1: The level meter, which consists of the LEDs labeled 20% through 150%, will light according to the current amount of load connected.
As the load exceeds one level, the next level will begin to blink, increasing the blink rate as the load increases until that full percentage is
reached. For example, if the unit is loaded to 40% of maximum output power the 20% and 40% LEDs will be lit. If another small load is added
increasing the load to 45% the 60% LED will begin to blink. If a little bit more load is added so that the total load becomes 50% the 60% LED will
blink faster. This will continue until enough load is added to equal 60% of the maximum output power at which time the 60% LED will stop
blinking and light continuously.
All other display conditions constitute either a warning or a fault condition. These conditions are explained in the section titled “Troubleshooting”
(page 22) in the charts on Warnings and Faults.

Load Shed Function
The 1700 Series includes a load shed function. During battery
backup operation, this function allows the load connected to two of
the receptacles (figure 1, page 9) to be turned off in an effort to
conserve power for more critical loads. The battery level at which
these two receptacles will be turned off, or “shed”, can be set by the
user (see “The Function Control Button”, page 17). By default, this
feature is configured so that these two receptacles will remain on for
the full battery backup time available (no “shedding”)
Battery Recharge Time
The following table gives estimates on time required to recharge the
UPS’s batteries. The recharge time may vary depending on the

Fan Speed
The 1700 Series UPS has variable speed fans. The fan speed will
vary depending on a number of factors. As the load placed on the
UPS increases the fan speed will increase. The temperature of the
environment the UPS is operating in can also cause the fan speed to
increase. (For a more detailed explanation of the variable speed fan
function refer to appendix B)
Battery Check Function
During startup the UPS will perform an automatic 'Battery Check' to
detect whether a problem exists in the battery circuit. If the batteries
pass the test, the unit will start normal operation. If a problem is
detected during the test the “Warning/Fault” LED will activate. Other
LED’s may also activate. If this occurs please refer to the
“Troubleshooting” section on page 22 for a description of the
problem and possible solutions. It is important to note that when
the UPS has detected bad batteries, the battery backup mode is
disabled. The unit will continue to operate and provide clean power;
however, since there is no battery power available, the unit cannot
provide backup power if input power is lost.
The Function Control Button
The function control button is located on the display panel (see
“Display Panel Layout”, page 12). This button is used to perform
several different UPS operations, including initiating self test,
providing programming options, and silencing the alarm. A brief
description of each function follows along with a step by step guide
to accessing each function.
1) Self-Test. In order to perform a self-test the UPS must be
operating in the normal mode (see “UPS Display Status and
Operating Condition”, page 14). To initiate the self-test simply
press and hold the Function Control button until all the LED’s
activate. The self-test also performs the same battery check
described above.
2) Alarm Silence. The alarm silence feature is used to stop the
audible alarm from sounding. Any time the audible alarm is
sounding pressing the Function Control button will silence the
alarm.
3) Programming Mode. There are three programming options:
load shed, output enable/disable after input overvoltage backup,
and reset battery installed date. In order to enter the
programming mode the UPS must first be operating in Bypass
mode without faults (see “Stopping the UPS: Option 1”, page
13). Then press and hold the Function Control button. (“Press
and hold” always means to hold until the unit gives audible
17
TOSHIBA
feedback). The unit will give an audible feedback indicating the
unit is in programming mode. (If at anytime while the UPS is in
the programming mode there is one minute of inactivity the UPS
will automatically exit the programming mode and return to
bypass operation.) What follows is a step by step guide to
navigating in the programming mode, followed by a detailed
description of each option.
A. Load Shed. The backup LED will light indicating the UPS is now
ready to make changes to the load-shed settings (see “The Load
Shed Function”, page 16 for an explanation of load shedding).
To accept this option press and hold the Function control button.
A.1 The UPS comes from the factory set so the load shed
receptacles function for the full battery backup time. The
LEDs on the right side of the display will light to indicate the
current setting for the load-shed level. For example, since
the default factory setting is for no load shed, the first time
the option is accessed no LEDs will be lit. Pressing the
button once will cause the 20% LED to light. This would
indicate that the load shed receptacles should be turned off
18
TOSHIBA
when there is 20% battery power remaining. Pressing the
Function Control button successive times will increase the
load shed level in 20% increments.
A.2 Once the option is set to the desired level, press and hold
the Function Control button. This will save the new load
shed level setting. The UPS will indicate that the value has
been stored by blinking the LEDs. After blinking the LED for
a short time the UPS will exit the programming mode and
return to bypass operation. To return the system to normal
operation switch the RUN/STOP switch back to the RUN
position.
B. Output Enable/Disable After Input Overvoltage Backup. Press
the function control button. The unit is now ready to change the
output enable/disable after input overvoltage backup option.
This is indicated by the 150% LED turning on. This setting
determines whether the UPS will go to bypass in the case of an
input overvoltage fault. To change this setting press and hold the
function control button.
B.1 This setting is set to disable output at the factory. Pressing
the function control button causes the 100% LED to light,
indicating output has been enabled. Pressing it again will
change it back to disabled and the 100% LED will go off.
B.2 Once the option is set as desired, press and hold the
function control button to save the setting. The UPS will
indicate the setting has been saved by blinking the LED(s).
The LED(s) will continue to blink for a short time after which
the UPS will exit programming mode and return to bypass
operation. To return the system to normal operation switch
the RUN/STOP switch back to the RUN position.
C. Reset Battery Installed Date. This should be done whenever a
new battery pack is installed. Press the function control button.
The unit is now ready to reset the battery installed date. This is
indicated by the Battery LED turning on. Once this mode has
been entered press and hold the function control button to reset
the battery install date to the current date. The UPS will indicate
that the date has been reset by blinking the Battery LED for a
short time after which the UPS will return to bypass operation.
To return the system to normal operation switch the RUN/STOP
switch back to the RUN position.
Note: It is not necessary that the unit’s internal clock be set to the
correct date. The UPS will track time relative to the battery installation
date. If it is desired to set the date, this can be done through remote
communication. For instructions on performing this operation refer to
either the "UPSmart" or "Remote Eye II" manual depending on the type
of remote communication being used.
19
TOSHIBA
Fixed Frequency Mode
The 1700 Series UPS has the option of operating in a fixed
frequency mode. Normally the UPS operates in the frequency autodetect mode. If a specific output frequency is required (i.e. 50Hz or
60Hz) the UPS can be set at the factory to supply the desired
frequency regardless of the input frequency (input frequency must be
within allowable limits, see Specifications on page 31). For a unit
already in use the output frequency can be set through software. For
instructions on setting the output frequency through software please
contact Toshiba at (800) 231-1412 or by e-mail at
toshibaups@tic.toshiba.com. It is important to note that when the
UPS is operating with a fixed output frequency, output is
disabled in bypass.
Adding an Additional Battery Module
Note: Only one additional battery module may be added to the
standard unit. For longer runtime options contact your Toshiba sales
representative or the Toshiba marketing department at (800) 2311412 or by e-mail at toshibaups@tic.toshiba.com. Figure 5 shows
the standard unit with one additional battery module added. To
install a second battery module follow these steps:
1) Unplug the standard battery module from the electronics module.
Unlock and remove the
electronics module from the

Communication Interface
Dry Contacts
The remote contacts interface is a standard feature. It is provided
through solid state relays with contacts through a DB9 male
connector located on the back of the UPS (refer to the
Communication Option User Manual for a more detailed description
of this option).
RS-232C
RS-232C serial communication interface is a standard feature
provided through a DB9 female connector located on the backside of
the UPS (see “Electronics Module Layout “, page 9). This interface
allows communication between the UPS and a personal computer
(see the Communication Option User Manual for a list of the data
available from the UPS via the RS-232C communication link)
Option Card Slot
The option card slot is a standard feature. An optional network
adapter card slides into the slot which is located on the back of the
electronics module (figure 1, page 9). This optional interface allows
the UPS to be monitored across the network or from any point on the
Internet (refer to the Communication Option User Manual for a more
detailed explanation of this option).
Troubleshooting
Warnings and Faults are those abnormal conditions that can occur
and could cause the unit to stop normal operation. These conditions
are detected by the protective circuitry in the unit. The UPS
“Warning/Fault” lamp will light red when a warning or fault occurs.
"Troubleshooting" involves monitoring the LED’s on the front panel
and then interpreting the readout by using the warning and fault
mode display charts that follow. Only the state of the LED’s listed in
the chart should be considered. Other LED’s might be active;
nevertheless, only those listed under the column “LED state” should
be considered when diagnosing a warning, or fault.
Warning/Fault Modes
All warnings will cause the red “Warning/Fault” LED to flash. All
faults will cause the red “Warning/Fault” LED to light continuously.
Some warnings and most faults will cause the UPS to transfer to
bypass mode. In many cases, after the condition that caused the
fault is corrected the unit will automatically transfer back to normal
mode. For those cases where the unit does not transfer back
automatically contact your Toshiba UPS service representative at 1877-867-8773 (outside the U.S. call 713-466-0277).

The temperature of the UPS
operating environment is too
high. Causes of this condition
include allowing the room
temperature to exceed 104°F
(40°C), a blocked vent or direct
sunlight on the unit. The unit will
transfer to bypass until the
temperature is reduced.
An output current limit warning
is typically a sign of
misapplication. The load may
not be appropriate for UPS
support. For further explanation
contact your Toshiba UPS
service representative at 1-877867-8773 (outside the U.S.

Storage of UPS Equipment.
General Guidelines
If the UPS equipment is to be stored; the following guidelines should be
used.
Avoid:
1) Storage in sites subject to extreme changes in temperature or high
humidity.
2) Storage in sites subject to exposure of high levels of dust or metal
particles
3) Storage on inclined floor surfaces or in sites subject to excessive
vibration.
Before Storing:
1) Allow UPS to be operated for 4 hrs to ensure that the batteries are fully
charged.
2) Stop the unit (see "Stopping the UPS" on page 13).
3) Place the unit's Input Breaker switch in the "off" position (see “Electronics
Module Layout”, page 9).
Storing:
1) Store within a temperature range of -20° to 40° C (-4° to 104° F). If the
UPS is stored at a temperature outside of the allowable operating range,
allow time for the unit to reach equilibrium with the ambient temperature
before starting the UPS.
2) For best results, store the UPS in the original shipping container and
place on a wood or metal pallet.
3) The optimum storage temperature is 21° C (70° F). Higher ambient
temperatures cause UPS batteries to need recharging more frequently.
Recharging requirements during storage:
Recharging the batteries requires that the battery module be connected to
the UPS and the UPS must have AC input power available. The UPS can
be in either the on line or bypass mode. (See “Starting the UPS”, page 12,
and “Battery Recharge Time”, page 16).
1) If stored in an ambient temperature less than 20°C (68°F), recharge the
batteries every 9 months.
2) If stored in an ambient temperature of 20° to 30°C (68° to 86°F),
recharge the batteries every 6 months.
3) If stored in an ambient temperature of 30° to 40° C (86° to 104°F),
recharge the batteries every 3 months.
Disposal
Please contact your local environmental agency for details on disposal of
electrical components and packaging in your particular area. It is illegal to
dump lead-acid batteries in landfills or dispose of improperly. Please
help our Earth by contacting the environmental protection agencies in your
area, the battery manufacturer, or call Toshiba toll-free at (800) 231-1412 for
more information about recycling.

Preventive and Scheduled Maintenance/Parts
Replacement
Preventive Maintenance
Toshiba's 1700 Series of UPS systems have been designed to
provide years of trouble-free operation requiring a minimum of
preventive maintenance.
The best preventive measure is to keep the area around the unit,
particularly the air inlet vents, clean and free of moisture and dust
accumulations. If the atmosphere of the installation site is very
dusty, use a vacuum cleaner to periodically remove dust
accumulations from the exterior of the unit, especially around
ventilation openings. Schedule authorized Toshiba service centers
to perform internal parts inspections annually, or call a Toshiba UPS
service representative at 1-877-867-8773 (outside the U.S. call 713466-0277).
CAUTION
Proper maintenance of the battery system
of this unit is essential to the safety and
reliability of the UPS system.
Parts Replacement
The following list shows intervals for periodic maintenance and
replacement of certain UPS parts.
1) Battery Module: Replacement should be done once every 3 to 5
years at a minimum.
2) Output Fuses: Replace once every 7 years (always replace
fuses with same fuse type and rating).
3) Cooling fan: Replace once every 3 years. (Fan replacement
must be done by Toshiba authorized service personnel.)

explanation of Bypass Undervoltage / Overvoltage see appendix E.)
31
TOSHIBA
Appendix B: Fan Speed Control
The fans in the 1700 Series will operate at any of four different speeds
depending on the environment and system conditions. In the first stage
the fans are off. As the load and or the temperature increase the fans
will subsequently go to low, medium or high speed as required.
The temperature reference given on the graph above refers to the
temperature inside the UPS. There will typically be a 5°C difference
between the internal and external temperature. The 10% hysteresis
shown is to ensure that the unit will not oscillate between fan speeds.
When the output power reaches a level that requires the fan speed to
increase the load will have to be reduced 10% below that level before the
fan speed will return to the lower speed.
32
TOSHIBA
Appendix C: System Overload Rating
The 1700 Series UPS is capable of supporting short duration overloads.
When operating in the On Line mode output overloading of 125% of the
rated output current can be supported for 1 minute, and 150% for 30
seconds. If the overload continues the unit will switch to bypass mode.
When in bypass mode the 1700 Series overload capacity is limited by
the input breaker. The following graph shows the response of the
breaker depending on the applied load. The two lines shown on the
graph represent the upper and lower limits of the breaker response. The
response of a particular breaker could fall anywhere between these two
lines.
If the load capacity of the breaker is exceeded the breaker will trip,
shutting down both the UPS and the attached loads. If the breaker’s
capacity is not exceeded the unit will continue to operate in the bypass
mode until the applied load is reduced. When the load on the UPS is
reduced to within the specified limits the UPS will automatically return to
On Line mode.
33
TOSHIBA
Appendix D: Parallel Operation
The 1700 Series UPS offers a standard feature that allows the unit to
operate with very low input voltage without de-rating the output power. If
the input voltage drops below a certain point the unit will switch to
parallel mode. Parallel mode means that the unit is using the available
input voltage and supplementing with battery power. Because battery
power is being used, the time the unit can operate in parallel mode is
limited. However, the time will be longer than that available when the
unit is operating on battery power alone. The point when the UPS will
enter parallel mode will vary depending on the output load. The following
graph shows the various stages based on full output load and 75%
output load.
As shown by the graph the lower the output load the lower the input
voltage can go before parallel mode is activated. However, the minimum
input voltage will always remain at 50% (60VAC for a 120VAC system).
34
TOSHIBA
Appendix E: Bypass Undervoltage / Overvoltage
When the 1700 Series UPS is in bypass mode the undervoltage and
overvoltage limits are restricted to +/-10% of the rated input voltage. If
the input voltage is outside of this voltage window the UPS output will be
turned off. There is a 5% hysteresis associated with both the upper and
lower limits. This means that once output has been turned off the input
voltage will have to be within ±5% of the rated input voltage before the
startup sequence will reinitialize. (To start the UPS when the input
power is outside of the allowable range see the section entitled “Starting
on DC Power”, page 13.)
When the UPS is started, if the RUN/STOP switch is in the STOP
(bypass) position the unit will start in the on-line mode for 1 second
before switching to bypass mode. If the input voltage is out of range the
UPS will turn off the output after 1 second rather than switching to
bypass.
