Introduction
1.1
Scope of the Manual
This instruction manual explains the installation, interconnection, and operation of Argus Technologies’ INEX
Inverter System.
1.2
Product Overview
INEX inverter series is an integrated telecommunication AC power system, including inverter, static switch, LCD
controller, and interface modules. With versatile “building block” design and N+1 redundant configuration, INEX
inverter system facilitates complex telecommunication and industrial power demands.
INEX series DC to AC inverter module is available for 1000VA (800W) or 1500VA (1200W) to convert -48Vdc
input to 120Vac or 230Vac output at 50Hz or 60Hz. The inverter module is “hot swappable” meaning it can be
inserted or removed from the shelf without cutting power to or from the system.
A universal 19” shelf is designed to parallel connect and synchronize all INEX inverter models. With this shelf,
INEX series employs N+1 redundant configuration to output power maximum of 12kVA for 120Vac models and
18kVA for 230Vac models, and to operate in N+1 redundant mode for optimization. INEX “all master” dynamic
mechanisms automatically share and re-organize critical loads to further prevent interruption if one or more
inverter modules fail.
INEX selective static transfer switch (STS) provides automatic instantaneous load transfer, which further secures
uninterrupted operation of sensitive electronic equipment.
The INEX system controller, equipped with a DSP microprocessor, gives real-time system status through
comprehensive LCD/LED indication, and allows program settings through the display panel. A communication
interface module provides local or remote control and monitoring of the system.

screwdriver should be used to eliminate the possibility of
slippage and scratching of the unit’s exterior. Washers (such as
internal tooth) or special screws that are designed to cut
through the painted surface should be used to ensure a good
chassis ground.
2. Put the shelf into the equipment rack horizontally, and align
holes of mounting brackets and rack.
NOTE: Each INEX controller module or interface module allows maximum
control of 12 inverter units cascaded. It is recommended to have the
controller/interface/STS shelf installed on top of stacked inverter
shelves to ease inter-connections; however, it may be installed
below the inverter shelves if the MBSDU panel is not required.
All input and output connections are made through the knockouts, located in the top and the bottom of each of the
two rear covers, as well as both side panels. The cover on the right is for the controller/interface section, and the
cover on the left is for the STS section.
3. Remove the rear cover(s) to access the shelf backplane and
connectors.
4. Knockouts on top and bottom are for shelf inter-connections. To
remove knockout, snip tabs, move plate up and down until tabs

Wire Selection
The INEX inverter modules are designed to operate in parallel for higher output current. Two modules are
automatically connected in parallel in each shelf. Two or more inverter shelves can be further connected in
parallel for additional output power; this is done by connecting inputs (BAT-, BAT+) in parallel, and outputs (Line,
Neutral, Ground) in parallel. When paralleled, there is no master unit and each unit adjusts its own power level for
best power sharing. Please refer to the following wiring instructions for your needs.
When selecting wiring, consider the following factors:
•
•
•
Current carrying capacity of the wire
Maximum wire length needed

6. Replace rear cover(s) once all connections have been
completed.
7. Screw the system ground wire on the rear cover with the
supplied cross hex-washer type nickel screw.
CAUTION
STS is not hot swap without MBS.
When installing STS module with MBS it is not necessary to turn off the system. However, the
incorrect install/removal action will damage the STS module frame because of the safety lock of
the MBS.
Proceed as follows: put switch at MBP or IBP position (Determined by mains and inverter output
status) as shown:
MBP position:
4.8.1
IBP position:
Position Status of MBS
The operation mode of STS is closely associated with the position of MBS. The MBS has two main connectors
and three assistant connectors. The signals generated by three assistant connectors are passed to DSP for
position status detection. There are five valid positions:
1.
2.
3.
4.
5.
MBP – mains bypass
MSS – mains static switch (for mains maintenance)
NORM – normal operation
ISS – inverter static switch (for inverter maintenance)
IBP – inverter bypass

STS will continuously detect the position of MBS in order to decide the transferring action between different
modes.
When the STS is powered on, it will judge whether the present position of MBS is valid. If the status is invalid,
STS will consider MBS not well connected, and it will not enter any types of operation mode until the detection
signal becomes normal.
If MBS is changed when STS runs at one of the five valid positions, and this change happens between two
adjacent positions, the STS will transfer to different mode based on current status. Otherwise, the STS will not
take any action.
For example, if MBS is set at P3, STS will take action when MBS is turned to P2 or P4.

NOTE: Be sure not to change MBS position immediately when STS is inserted into the rack, wait at least five seconds if
you want to change it. When you change its position you must confirm that you keep MBS at one position more
than one second in order for MCU of STS has enough time to detect MBS position via MBS auxiliary contacts
(CN1).

Fan Speed Control
Output current and NTC temperature decide the fan speed. The NTC temperature has the influential priority.
When the temperature is above 70ºC, the fan will work in full speed. However, when the temperature is less than
60ºC, the fan works according to the different load current. The fan has four levels of speed, the following tables
show the relation between fan speed and load current:

Troubleshooting
If the system fails to operate properly after having the installation and setup of the system thoroughly reexamined, use the following troubleshooting table to determine the probable cause(s) and solution(s) to resolve
error conditions. For unlisted error conditions, please contact your local dealer for technical assistance.
Error Condition
Possible Cause
Improper position of nylon guide pin.
Inverter module cannot
be properly inserted.
No AC output
and all LEDs off.
Insertion of non-inverter module.
Lack of input power.
Mismatch of inverter modules.
No AC output.
Both green and yellow
LEDs flicker.
No AC output.
Both yellow and red
LEDs are on.
Inverter self-diagnosis.
Load exceeds 125%.
1. Input wiring is connected in reverse (i.e.
reverse polarity).
2. Output voltage is out of operating range.
No AC output.
Red LED is on.
3. Inverter output is shorted.
4. Negative Power Protection.
1. Inverter fails to soft start.
Red LED blinks fast.
AC output exists with
yellow LED flickering.
AC output exists and
yellow LED is on.
Recommendation
Refer to Section 3.1 to insert the nylon guide pin
to correct position.
Check if the inserted module is not inverter
module. Inverter shelf holds only inverter
modules.
Ensure input cables are all firmly connected to
power source.
Check if power source is not yet switched on, or
is low in power.
Ensure inserted inverter modules have the same
specifications.
Inverter self-diagnosis takes a few seconds.
LED turns to a solid green light after the
completion of self-diagnosis.
Ensure the load is no higher than 100% of the
total power rating. Reduce as required.
Ensure input cables are connected to correct
polarity (positive to positive, negative to
negative).
Adjust voltage to ensure that the connected
device is within the inverter output voltage range.
Turn off the input power source to remove all
short circuits.
For multi-shelf system, any jumper insertion on
JP2 connector would obstruct parallel
connections. Remove jumper from JP2
connector.
For single-shelf system, jumper on JP2
connector pools two inverter modules. Ensure
there is a jumper on JP2 connector.
Reboot the inverter system by switching off and
on the input power source.
2. Inverter temperature rises beyond the
temperature limit.
Leave inverter idle to cool down for few minutes.
Input voltage is out of operating range.
Ensure input voltage is between 45 to 58Vdc.
Load is over 100% but below 125%.

slowly.
Ensure the load is no higher than 100% of the
total power rating. Reduce as required.
Reboot the inverter system by switching off and
on the input power source.
Check if the fans are locked or fail to work.
If fan is locked, remove the obstruction;
if fan fails to work, replace the fan.

Argus Conventions
10.1
Numbering System
Argus Technologies uses an eight-digit drawing number system, which is broken into three blocks. The first three
digits describe the category of the product; e.g., rectifier or fuse panel. The next three digits indicate the sequence
in which the product number was allocated in a particular category. The last two digits indicate the type of
drawing, for example:
“-05”
“-08”
“-20”
Schematic
Customer Connections
Main Assembly
Argus uses an eight-digit part numbering system for all components and sub assemblies. Each part is covered by
its own unique number. Due to the quantity, categories will not be listed within this manual.
