Smart-UPS Battery Pack Supplement
990-7990A Revision 2 1 98
When used with external battery packs, the extended run (XL) Smart-UPS offers longer run times than a standard Smart-UPS and extra load protection during
battery replacement. When replacing the batteries either in the UPS or battery pack(s), the UPS can still respond to a power disturbance using the remaining
connected batteries. Please refer to the User’s Manual for basic information about the Smart-UPS and the Smart-UPS XL Supplement for additional information
on extended run versions of the UPS. This supplement provides information on the battery packs.

Installation
Inspection
Inspect the battery pack upon receipt. Notify the carrier and dealer if there is damage. The packaging is recyclable; save it for reuse or dispose of it properly.
Placement
Warning: Changes or modifications to this unit not expressly approved by the party responsible for compliance could void the warranty.
This figure shows the location of the battery pack connector on the SU3000 tower unit (right), the 5U
SU3000RM (bottom), and the SU1000XL tower unit (left). Some UPS models have the battery pack
connector in different positions, but the size and shape of the connector is always the same.
Battery pack connectors are color coded as shown in the table below. Battery pack connectors are also
keyed to prevent improper connection. Do not try to install battery packs with connectors that are a
different color from the battery pack connector in the UPS.

Install up to 10 battery packs per XL model UPS following the instructions below. Note: The 3000 VA Smart-UPS accepts only one SU48BP battery pack.
1. Prepare the UPS to connect the battery pack(s).
Note the holes used to attach the battery pack
connector clamp (near the center of the
connector opening). Use a #2 Phillips head
screwdriver to remove the battery pack
connector clamp from the back of the UPS.
3. Holding the clamp aside, insert the battery pack connector into
the UPS.
2. Turn the clamp over and loosely attach one end
at the edge of the connector opening in the
UPS.
4. Secure the connector clamp.
Correctly completed rack mount XL installation with one battery
pack
Correctly completed tower XL installation with two battery packs.
For additional battery packs, repeat this procedure using the battery pack connectors on the battery packs.
Note: Do not stack battery packs. Stacking results in a tipping hazard.
Storage
Storage Conditions
Store the battery pack covered and upright in a cool, dry location, with its
batteries fully charged. Before storing, charge the battery pack for at least
4 hours.
Extended Storage
At -15 to +30 °C (+5 to +86 °F), charge the battery pack every 6 months
At +30 to +45 °C (+86 to +113 °F), charge the battery pack every 3 months.
Battery Charge and Run Times
A floppy disk is shipped with each battery pack to configure your Smart-UPS for use with each new battery pack added. Your Smart-UPS needs to be configured
appropriately so that it can better calculate the discharge time. Connect the UPS’ port to a serial port on a PC or workstation running DOS or Windows, by using
the black colored communications cable included. Next, while at the DOS prompt, insert the floppy disk into a drive and change to that drive’s letter (e.g.. A:)
Then type: battpack com[X] [Y], where [X] = 1 or 2 depending on the serial port used, and [Y] = number of battery packs attached to the UPS.
The Smart-UPS XL Supplement contains tables showing both the time required for charging UPS and battery pack batteries for rated protection and typical run
times.
Note: When configuring a Smart-UPS for use with an SU48RMXLBP, remember that one SU48RMXLBP is equivalent to two battery packs of any
other model.
Replacing the Battery
This battery pack has easy to replace hot-swappable batteries. Battery replacement is a safe procedure, isolated from electrical hazards. You may leave the UPS
and loads on for the following procedure. See your dealer or call the number in this manual for information on replacement battery kits.
Note: Please read the cautions in the APC Safety Guide. Save your data before beginning this procedure. Once the battery is disconnected, the loads
are not protected from power outages.
