Equipment with casters is built to move on a smooth surface without any obstacles.

Do not use a ramp inclined at more than 10°.

This equipment is intended for installation in a temperature-controlledindoor area (0 to 40ΓC (+32 to +104ΓF)), free of conductive contaminants.

Electrical Safety

Do not work alone under hazardous conditions.

High short circuit current through conductive materials could cause severe burns.

A licensed electrician is required to install permanently wired equipment.

Check that the power cord(s), plug(s), and sockets are in good condition.

To reduce the risk of electric shock when grounding cannot be verified, disconnect the equipment from the AC power outlet before installing or connecting to other equipment. Reconnect the power cord only after all connections are made.

Do not handle any kind of metallic connector before the power has been removed.

Use one hand, whenever possible, to connect or disconnect signal cables to avoid a possible shock from touching two surfaces with different electrical grounds.

Connect the equipment to a three wire AC outlet (two poles plus ground). The receptacle must be connected to appropriate branch circuit/mains protection (fuse or circuit breaker). Connection to any other type of receptacle may result in a shock hazard.

CAUTION! Deenergizing Safety

If the equipment has an internal energy source (the battery), the output may be energized when the unit is not connected to an AC power outlet.

To deenergize pluggable equipment: first press the Off button for more than one second to switch the equipment off. Next disconnect the equipment from the AC power outlet. Finally, disconnect the battery.

To deenergize permanently wired equipment: set the power switch to standby. Next set the AC circuit breaker to standby. Then disconnect the batteries (including any expansion units). Finally, disconnect the AC power from the building power supply.

Pluggable equipment includes a protective earth conductor which carries the leakage current from the load devices (computer equipment). Total leakage current must not exceed 3.5 mA.

Use of this equipment in life support applications where failure of this equipment can reasonably be expected to cause the failure of the life support equipment or to significantly effect its safety or effectiveness is not recommended.

WARNING! Battery Safety

This equipment contains potentially hazardous voltages. Do not attempt to disassemble the unit. The only exceptionis for equipment containing batteries. Battery replacement using the procedures below is permissible. Except for the battery, the unit contains no user serviceable parts. Repairs are performed only by factory trained service personnel.

Batteries must be recycled. Deliver the battery to an appropriate recycling facility or ship it to the supplier in the new battery’s packing material. See the new battery instructions for more information.

Do not dispose of batteries in a fire. The batteries may explode.

Do not open or mutilate batteries. They contain an electrolyte which is toxic and harmful to the skin and eyes.

To avoid personal injury due to energy hazard, remove wrist watches and jewelry such as rings when replacing the batteries. Use tools with insulated handles.

Replace batteries with the same number and type of batteries as originally installed in the equipment.

Replacement and Recycling of Batteries

See your dealer or the Battery Replacement section of this User’s Manual for information on replacement battery kits and battery recycling.

Introduction

This Uninterruptible Power Supply (UPS) is designed to prevent blackouts, brownouts, sags and surges from reaching your computer and other valuable electronic equipment. This UPS also filters out small utility line fluctuations and isolates your equipment from large disturbances by internally disconnecting from the utility line, while supplying power from its internal batteries until the utility line returns to safe levels.

While running on battery, an internal alarm will sound (periodic beeps). The on/test button may be pressed to silence the UPS alarm.

If the utility power does not return, the UPS will continue supplying power to the connected equipment until exhausted. A continuous beeping will sound two minutes before the UPS’s final low battery shutdown. If using a computer, you must manually save your files and power down before the UPS turns itself off, unless you are using PowerChute interface software that provides automatic, unattended shutdown.

Unpacking

Inspection

Inspect the UPS upon receipt. Notify the carrier and dealer if there is damage. The packaging is recyclable; save it for reuse or dispose of it properly.

Contents

The shipping package contains the UPS, its batteries, and, for some rack mount units, rails to hold the UPS in a rack. The 5000 VA unit ships with the batteries separate from the UPS case.

How to Unpack the SU 5000 UPS

Move the UPS, in its shipping package, as close to the desired location as possible. Then follow these instructions:

Use scissors or a knife to cut the plastic straps and open the package.

Unpack the box containing the mounting rails.

Lift off the cardboard box that covers the top and sides of the package. The bottom of the box is formed by a wooden pallet.

Lift the UPS up and out of the box.

Read this User’s Manual for safety information and installation instructions.

Remove the foam spacers.

Pull the plastic bag down to expose the UPS.

Remove the batteries from the pallet.

Caution:

The 5000 VA models (without batteries installed) require two people to lift due to their weight.

Installation

Installing your UPS requires five steps:

1.Position the UPS in the desired location. For rack mount units this may include installing the rails into the rack.

2.Connect the batteries. All UPSs ship with the batteries disconnected. In 5000 VA units you must also install the batteries in the UPS.

3.Connect equipment to the UPS.

4.Power up the UPS.

5.Install PowerChute® UPS monitoring software and accessories.

1.Position the UPS

Placement

Install the UPS in a protected area that is free of excessive dust and has adequate air flow. Do not operate the UPS where the temperature and humidity are outside the specified limits.

Warning!

Changes or modifications to this unit not expressly approved by the party responsible for compliance could void the warranty.

Installing Rack Mount Units

The rack mount UPS comes with standard 19” (46.5 cm) rack mount brackets (ears) installed. The 3000 and 5000 VA models of the UPS are supplied with rails to support them in the rack. These supports may be used to ease installation for 19” or 23” racks. The supports are available as an accessory for the 1400 VA model. Contact your dealer or APC at the number listed under APC Contact Information, page 19, for more information. SeeAppendix B: Types of Racks and Mounting Hardware, page 23, for more information and installation instructions.

Caution:

Two or more people are required to install the 3000 and 5000 VA models due to their weight. The 5000 VA models must be put into position before the batteries are installed.

Installing the UPS in a rack involves a four-stepprocess:

1.Determine the location of the UPS in the rack.

2.Install the mounting rails in the rack.

3.Load the UPS into the rack.

4.Attach the mounting brackets to the rack. This section describes each step in detail.

990-7031C,Revision 4 12/99

2

Determine the Location of the UPS in the Rack

UPSs are heavy. Select a rack location sturdy enough to handle the weight. Mount the UPS at or near the bottom of the rack.

Select a rack location with adequate air flow that is free from excessive dust. Ensure that any air vents on the sides of the UPS are not blocked. Do not operate the UPS where temperature or humidity are outside the limits listed under

Specifications, page 17.

Two additional sets of bracket holes, shown below at asterisks (*), are located on the sides of all rack mount UPS models except the 5000 VA. These holes allow mounting the brackets with a three inch or six inch setback. Move the mounting brackets back if desired to optimize the esthetic or physical requirements of the rack. The 5000 VA unit cannot be mounted in a setback position since it requires the full depth of the rack.

* *

Caution:

Check the rack to make sure it won’t tip after moving the mounting brackets.

1. Determine where in the rack you’ll mount the UPS. The SU5000 requires a space of 5U. Some racks have tick marks to indicate the U-spaces.

2.Using the mounting template provided (part number 990-0195),identify and mark the correct mounting holes for the UPS

 

mounting brackets.

 

3.

Locate and mark the bottom hole in the designated U-space .

 

The bottom screw on the mounting rail will attach to the bottom

 

hole in the U-space.

 

 

 

4.

Repeat steps 2 and 3 for the remaining three rack posts.

5.

Prepare the rack holes, if necessary. Racks with threaded holes

 

require no preparation.

 

 

If your rack has round holes, insert clip nuts

(provided) into

 

the holes marked in step 2.

 

 

If your rack has square holes, insert either clip

or cage

 

nuts into the holes marked in step 2.
