HOW TO DETERMINE THE POWER REQUIREMENTS OF
YOUR EQUIPMENT
1. M a k e s u r e t h a t t h e t o t a l V o l t - A m p ( V A ) r e q u i r e m e n t s o f y o u r computer,
monitor and peri pheral e q u i p m e n t does not exceed the m a x i m u m V A r a t i n g
for the XVT-600, XVT-800, XVT-1200 a n d XVT-1500. T h e maximum VA values
would be 600VA, 800VA, 1200VA and 1500VA, respectively.
2. Ensure that the equipment plugged into the battery-powered outlets does not
exceed the UPS's rated capacity. If UPS's rated capacities are exceeded, an
overload condition may occur and cause the UPS to shut down and trip the circuit
breaker.
3. If the power requirements of your equipment are listed in values other than VoltAmps (VA), convert Watts (W) or Amps (A) into VA by doing the calculations
below. Note: The equation below only calculates the maximum amount of VA that
the equipment can use, not what is typically used by the equipment at any given
time. Users should expect usage requirements to be approximately 60% of below
value to estimate power requirements:
Watts (W) x 1.83 =
VA or
Amps (A) x 120 =
VA
Add the totals for all of the equipment and multiply this total by 0.65 to calculate
actual requirements.
Note: Many factors can affect the amount of power that your computer system
will require. The total load that you will be placing on the battery-powered
outlets should not exceed 85% of the UPS's capacity.

Servicing of batteries should be performed or supervised by personnel
knowledgeable about batteries and the required precautions.
When replacing batteries, replace with the same type and number of batteries or
battery packs.
CAUTION: Do not dispose of batteries in a fire. The batteries may explode.
CAUTION: Do not open or mutilate batteries. Released electrolyte is harmful to the
skin and eyes. It may be toxic.
CAUTION: A battery can present a risk of electrical shock and high short-circuit
current. The following precautions should be observed when working on batteries:
a) Remove watches, rings, or other metal objects.
b) Use tools with insulated handles.
c) Wear rubber gloves and boots.
d) Do not lay tools or metal parts on top of batteries.
e) Disconnect charging source prior to connecting or disconnecting battery terminals.
f) Determine if battery is inadvertently grounded. If inadvertently grounded, remove
source from ground. Contact with any part of a grounded battery can result in
electrical shock. The likelihood of such shock can be reduced if such grounds are
removed during installation and maintenance.

Wear protective eye gear (goggles), rubber gloves and boots.
Disconnect the charging source before connecting or disconnecting the battery
terminals.
6. Determine if the battery is inadvertently grounded. If inadvertently grounded,
remove the source of ground. Contact with a grounded battery can result in
electrical shock! The likelihood of such shock will be reduced if; such grounds
are removed during installation and maintenance (applicable to a UPS and a
remote battery supply not having a grounded circuit).

Servicing of batteries should be performed or supervised by personnel
knowledgeable about batteries and the required precautions.
When replacing batteries, replace with the same type and number of batteries or
battery packs.
CAUTION: Do not dispose of batteries in a fire. The batteries may explode.
CAUTION: Do not open or mutilate batteries. Released electrolyte is harmful to the
skin and eyes. It may be toxic.
CAUTION: A battery can present a risk of electrical shock and high short-circuit
current. The following precautions should be observed when working on batteries:
a) Remove watches, rings, or other metal objects.
b) Use tools with insulated handles.
c) Wear rubber gloves and boots.
d) Do not lay tools or metal parts on top of batteries.
e) Disconnect charging source prior to connecting or disconnecting battery terminals.
f) Determine if battery is inadvertently grounded. If inadvertently grounded, remove
source from ground. Contact with any part of a grounded battery can result in
electrical shock. The likelihood of such shock can be reduced if such grounds are

HOW TO DETERMINE THE POWER REQUIREMENTS OF
YOUR EQUIPMENT
1. M a k e s u r e t h a t t h e t o t a l V o l t - A m p ( V A ) r e q u i r e m e n t s o f y o u r computer,
monitor and peri pheral e q u i p m e n t does not exceed the m a x i m u m V A r a t i n g
for the XVT-600, XVT-800, XVT-1200 a n d XVT-1500. T h e maximum VA values
would be 600VA, 800VA, 1200VA and 1500VA, respectively.
2. Ensure that the equipment plugged into the battery-powered outlets does not
exceed the UPS's rated capacity. If UPS's rated capacities are exceeded, an
overload condition may occur and cause the UPS to shut down and trip the circuit
breaker.
3. If the power requirements of your equipment are listed in values other than VoltAmps (VA), convert Watts (W) or Amps (A) into VA by doing the calculations
below. Note: The equation below only calculates the maximum amount of VA that
the equipment can use, not what is typically used by the equipment at any given
time. Users should expect usage requirements to be approximately 60% of below
value to estimate power requirements:
Watts (W) x 1.83 =
VA or
Amps (A) x 120 =
VA
Add the totals for all of the equipment and multiply this total by 0.65 to calculate
actual requirements.
Note: Many factors can affect the amount of power that your computer system
will require. The total load that you will be placing on the battery-powered
outlets should not exceed 85% of the UPS's capacity.
