CAUTION! Read and follow the IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS before servicing the battery. Service the battery under the supervision of
personnel knowledgeable of batteries and their precautions.
CAUTION! Use only the specified type of battery. See your dealer for replacement batteries.
CAUTION! The battery may present a risk of electrical shock. Do not dispose of battery in a fire as it may explode. Follow all local ordinances
regarding proper disposal of batteries. Almost any retailer that sells lead-acid batteries collects used batteries for recycling, as required by most
state laws.
CAUTION! Do not open or mutilate the batteries. Released electrolyte is harmful to skin and eyes and may be toxic.
CAUTION! A battery can present a high risk of short circuit current and electrical shock. Take the following precautions before replacing the

The CST1400G provides complete power protection from utility power that is not always consistent.
The CST1400G features 1500 Joules of surge prot ection. Both units provide long lasting battery backup
during power outages with maintenance free batteries. The CST1400G ensures consistent power to your
electronic equipment and includes software that will automatically save your open files and shutdown your
electronic equipment during a utility power loss.
The CST1400G stabilizes inconsistent utility power voltage to nominal levels that are safe for equipment. Inconsistent incoming utility

power may be damaging to important data files and hardware, but with Automatic Voltage Regulation (AVR), damaging voltage levels are
corrected to safe levels.
AVR automatically increases low utility power and decreases high utility power to a consistent and safe 110/120 volts.
1. Ensure that the equipment plugged into the UPS does not exceed the UPS unit’s rated capacity (1400VA/840W for CST1400G).
If the rated capacities of the unit are exceeded, an overload condition may occur and cause the UPS unit to shut down or the
circuit breaker to trip.
2. There are many factors that can affect the amount of power that your electronic equipment will require.
It is suggested that the load placed
on the battery outlets not exceed 80% of the unit’s capacity.
Batteries are considered HAZARDOUS WASTE and must be disposed of properly.
Most retailers that sell lead-acid batteries
collect used batteries for recycling, as required by local regulations.
1. Your new UPS may be used immediately upon receipt. However, after receiving a new UPS, to ensure the battery’s maximum charge capacity,
it is recommended that you charge the battery for at least 8 hours. Your UPS is equipped with an auto-charge feature. When the UPS is
plugged into an AC outlet, the battery will automatically charge whether the UPS is turned on or off.
2. With the UPS unit turned off and unplugged, connect your computer, monitor, and any other peripherals requiring battery backup into the
battery power supplied outlets. DO NOT plug a laser printer, paper shredder, copier, space heater, vacuum cleaner, sump pump or
other large electrical devices into the “Battery and Surge Protected Outlets”. The power demands of these devices may overload
and damage the unit.

INPUT voltage meter:
This meter measures the AC voltage that the UPS system is receiving from the utility wall outlet. The UPS is designed to continuously
supply connected equipment with stable output voltage In the event of a complete power loss, severe brownout, or over-voltage, the UPS
relies on its internal battery to supply consistent 110/120 output voltage. The INPUT voltage meter can be used as a diagnostic tool to
identify poor-quality input power.
Power Switch
Used as the master ON/OFF switch for equipment connected to the battery power supplied outlets.
This meter measures, in real time, the AC voltage that the UPS system is providing to the computer, such as normal line mode, AVR mode,

NORMAL icon:
This displays the run time estimate of the UPS with current battery capacity and load.
This icon appears when the UPS is working under normal conditions.
During a severe brownout or blackout, this icon appears and an alarm sounds (two short beeps followed by a pause) to indicate the UPS is
operating from its internal batteries. The alarm will continue to sound during a prolonged brownout or blackout.
Limited Warranty and Connected Equipment Guarantee
The BATT.CAPACITY meter will show one 20% capacity segment remaining to indicate the UPS's batteries are nearly out of power. You
should save files and turn off your equipment immediately.
AVR (Automatic Voltage Regulation) icon:
This icon appears whenever your UPS is automatically correcting low AC line voltage without using battery power. This is a normal,
automatic operation of your UPS, and no action is required on your part.
This icon appears whenever the UPS is in silent mode. The buzzer does not beep during silent mode until the battery reaches low
This icon appears and an alarm sounds to indicate the battery-supplied outlets are overloaded. To clear the overload, unplug some of your
equipment from the battery-supplied outlets until the icon turns off and the alarm stops.
