User’s Guide
Connect Battery
For safety, the Back-UPS ES is shipped with one battery wire disconnected. The Back-UPS ES will not operate until the wire is connected to the touch
safe battery terminal.
NOTE: Small sparks may occur during battery connection. This is normal.
TURN the Back-UPS ES over and
slide the battery compartment
cover off of the battery housing.
LIFT the battery out of the compartment
and connect the black wire to the
negative (-) battery terminal. Ensure the
batteries are installed as shown below.
Connect Equipment
Battery Backup
Slide the battery compartment cover
back onto the battery housing.
Place the Back-UPS ES to avoid:
- Direct sunlight
- Excessive heat
- Excessive humidity or contact with fluids
Plug the Back-UPS ES power cord directly into a wall outlet; not a
surge protector or power strip. The wall outlet should be located near
the equipment and be easily accessible.
Surge Protection
These outlets are powered whenever the Back-UPS ES is
switched ON. During a power outage or other utility
problems (brownouts, over-voltages), these outlets will be
powered for a limited time by the Back-UPS ES. Plug your
computer, monitor, and two other data-sensitive devices
(external disk or tape drive) into these outlets.
Connect Modem / Phone / DSL / Fax / 10/100 Base- T/HPNA to
Surge Protection.
The Back-UPS protects a single line (2-wire) phone (including Digital
Subscriber line - DSL), Home Phoneline Networking Association (HPNA)
type equipment, modem, 10/100. Base-T Ethernet, or fax machines from
surges when connected through the UPS as shown in the drawing below.
Note: Telephone Cable OR Network Cable should be connected to Surge
Protection ports. Do not connect the UPS surge protection ports to both
Telephone and Network System cables at the same time.
Connect Computer Cable (This is applicable for 550/700 only)
The supplied cable and software provide automatic file saving and
shutdown of the operating system in the case of a sustained power outage.
Connect the cable to the Data Port of the Back-UPS ES. Connect the other
end of the cable to the USB port on your computer. The software will
automatically find the USB Port of your computer.
(10/100 Base-T)
Surge Protection Only
These outlets provide full-time protection from surges even if
the Back-UPS ES is switched OFF. Plug your printer, fax
machine, scanner, or other peripherals that do not need
battery power into these outlets.
Power On and
Install Software
Press the ON/OFF switch to power the unit
A single short beep and the green “Power On”
indicator confirms that Back-UPS ES is on and
ready to provide protection.
The Back-UPS ES should charge for at least
16 hours to ensure sufficient runtime. The unit
is being charged whenever it is connected to
utility power, whether the unit is turned ON or
Install the PowerChute Personal™
Edition software (This is applicable for
550/700 only.)
Place the PowerChute Personal Edition CDROM into your computer and follow the
installation instructions on the screen.

Use the table below to solve minor Back-UPS ES installation or operation problems. Consult APC Online Technical Support or call APC
Technical Support for assistance with problems that cannot be resolved using the table below:
Probable Cause
Back-UPS ES will not turn on.
Battery is disconnected or utility power is not available at
the wall outlet.
Connect the battery (see Connect Battery) and ensure power is available at the wall
No power available at the Surge Protection
Only outlets.
Surge Protection Only outlets have been overloaded.
Reduce the amount of equipment plugged into Surge Protection Only outlets.
Utility power not available at the wall outlet.
Ensure the fuse or circuit breaker for the outlet is not tripped, and that the wall switch
controlling the outlet (if any) is in the ON position.
Equipment is connected to the Surge Protection Only
Ensure the equipment you want to stay powered during a power failure is plugged
into the Battery Backup/Surge Protection outlets and NOT the Surge Protection Only
The Back-UPS ES is overloaded.
Make sure the equipment plugged into the Battery Backup/Surge Protection outlets
of the unit are not overloading the capacity of the unit. Try removing some of the
equipment and see if the problem continues.
Connected equipment loses power.
PowerChute Personal Edition software has performed a
shutdown due to a power failure.

The Power On indicator is lit and the BackUPS ES is beeping four times every 30
The Power On indicator flashes once per
second and the Back-UPS ES beeps once per
second at the same time.
Inadequate runtime.
The output waveform is designed for computers and computer-related equipment. It
is not designed for use with motor-type equipment.
The Back-UPS ES may require service.
Contact APC Technical Support for further troubleshooting.
The Back-UPS ES is using battery.
The Back-UPS ES is operating normally and using battery power. Once On Battery,
you should save your current work, power down your equipment, and turn the unit
OFF. Once normal power is restored, you may turn the unit back ON and power your
Battery capacity is low (about 2 minutes of use remaining).
Allow the unit to charge by leaving it plugged into the wall for at least 16 hours.
Battery is near the end of useful life.
As a battery ages, the amount of runtime available will decrease. You can replace
the battery by ordering one at Batteries also age prematurely if the
Back-UPS ES is placed near excessive heat.

The UPS can be mounted vertically or horizontally to a wall surface. Use the template below to position the mounting
fasteners (not supplied). Wall mount the UPS as follows;
1. Hold this page against the wall in the desired mounting location.
2. Use thumbtacks or tape to hold this page in place against the wall. Use a sharp nail or pin to puncture the
center of each template circle to mark the wall.
3. Install the mounting fasteners at the marked locations. Leave the head of both fasteners 8 mm (5/16) out
from the face of the wall. The fasteners must be able to support 6.8 Kg.
