4 Installation

4.1Unpack and check

The device has been extensively tested and checked. Although packaging and shipping was done carefully, we cannot fully rule out any transport damage.


Any claims based on transport damages must be

made directly to the shipping company!


On receipt, check the contents of the transport containers for any damages. If necessary, ask the shipping company to check the goods and make a note of any damages while an employee with the shipping company is still present and report the damage within eight days of receipt to an AEG representative or retailer.

Check the contents for completeness:

PROTECT D. with 1000, 1500, 2000 or 3000 VA

2 mounting brackets incl. 2x4 screws M4x8

2 input power cords

(1x CEE 7/7 hybrid plug / 1x BS1363 plug)

3 output device cables IEC320 10A

as well as 1 device cable. IEC320 16A for the D.3000

2 communication cables (RS232 & USB)

2 rack rails incl. screws and cage nuts

Safety precautions & Operating instructions

External battery modules include the following:

External battery unit

PROTECT D.1000BP, D.1500BP or D.2030BP

2 mounting brackets incl. 2x4 screws M4x8

2 rack rails incl. screws and cage nuts

Please report any deviations to our hotline (see pg. 5).


The original carton provides effective protection against damage and should be kept in case the device has to be transported again at a later date.

Always keep plastic bags away from babies and children to prevent suffocation.

Handle the components with care. Think of their weight and have a second person to assist with lifting.

4.2Installation location

The PROTECT D. is designed to be installed in a protected environment. When choosing that location, make sure that there is adequate ventilation and other appropriate environmental conditions.

The PROTECT D. is air-cooled.Do not block the vents!

The UPS and its battery modules in particular should preferably be operated at room temperature (between 15°C and 25°C).


Install the devices in a room that is dry, relatively dust-freeand



free of chemical vapors.



Make sure that no magnetic storage media are stored and / or



operated in the vicinity of the PROTECT D.




Check the type plate to make sure that the voltage



and frequency specifications match those of your





load segments.






For the rack installation of the UPS system and its external



battery units (special accessory), please note the following:


• To prevent vibration and jarring, the installation location has to have adequate stability.

• Make sure the rack is able to support the installation, particularly when external battery units (special accessory) are used.

• Install the units so that there is adequate air circulation. Make sure there is at least 100 mm of free space behind the


rear vent for ventilation purposes. Do not block the vents on the front. Make sure that there is a free space of at least 50

mm in the front.

Place any external battery units directly underneath the UPS system. To ensure maximum mechanical stability, place each tray in its own rack mount.

Avoid extreme temperatures! An environmental temperature of 15°C to 25°C is recommended to maximize battery life. Do not expose the units to direct sunlight or operate them close to any other heat sources, e.g. radiators.

Protect the units from environmental influences (particularly moisture and dust). Please pay special attention to the information in Chapter 3, starting on pg. 17 of this manual.

Using an external manual bypass is recommended; this makes it possible to disconnect and remove the UPS for servicing, for example, at any time.

If the device is taken from a cold room and brought into a warm room or if the room temperature suddenly drops, condensation inside the device may occur. To prevent any condensation buildup, let the device acclimatize for 2 hours before you switch it on.

Installation in a 19" rack

Mount the trays preferably in the lower third of the rack, taking into account the center of gravity of the rack and making sure there is adequate fresh air. Universal mount systems are included. Each tray requires 2U (~88mm).

1.First install the enclosed rack rails, which can be varied in terms of depth, see Fig.1. Insert the screws in the left and right rail loosely.

Roughly adjust the depth of the rail in the installation location in the rack.

2.Now locate the corresponding installation positions in the rack and place two cage nuts at each post corresponding to the position of the rails. Use 8 cage nuts for each rail pair.

Front of rack

3.Now insert the rails. According to the illustration above, fasten the rails to the rear post with two screws each; in the front, first use the lower screw. Now tighten all the screws, including the 3 screws each on the rail itself.

4.Repeat these steps for each individual tray.


5.Now lift the UPS and the battery trays carefully out of the packaging with 2 people and set the device down on a stable flat surface.

6.Now fasten the two brackets that come with the device to the side of the UPS and, if using, an external battery unit according to Fig. 4. Make sure to put the bracket marked “L” on the left and the one marked “R” on the right hand side.

7.Now insert the trays into the side rack rails previously installed in the cabinet. If using, start first by inserting the external battery units. The UPS is inserted last. Make sure that the battery units are installed directly below the UPS.

Fig.5: Inserting the UPS (use same method for the battery units)

8. Now fasten the top cage nuts to the front post. If being used, screw the battery units to the rack. Insert the UPS loosely at first.

9. Check once again to make sure that the UPS and battery unit

belong together.


Never connect different voltage levels with one another!

Connect PROTECT D.1000 with PROTECTD.1000BP only!

Connect PROTECT D.1500 with PROTECTD.1500BP only!

Connect PROTECT D.2000 with PROTECTD.2030BP only!

Connect PROTECT D.3000 with PROTECTD.2030BP only!

10.Now follow the instructions provided in “Electrical Connection” in Chapter 6 on pg. 32 for the initial start-up.
