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

About Your New UPS

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 (four battery packs), six IEC jumper cords, and, for rack mount units, rails to support the unit in a rack.

How to Unpack the 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 model requires two or more people to lift due to its weight.

Installation

Installing your UPS requires six steps:

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

2.Hardwire the electrical connection on the input side (must be done by an authorized electrician).

3.Install the batteries. This 5000 VA UPS ships without the batteries installed.

4.Connect equipment to the UPS.

5.Power up the UPS.

6.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. It is supplied with L channel supports. These supports must be used with this model to ease installation for a 19” rack.

Caution:

Remove the UPS before moving the rack.

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.

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 12.

Determine the Location of the UPS in the Rack (continued)

 

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 3 and 4 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 in step 2.

 

 

If your rack has square holes, insert either clip

or cage

 

nuts into the holes marked in step 2 (cage nut shown).

Install the Mounting Rails in the Rack

2

 

1

 

Remove the two screws that hold the rails together so that the rails can slide outward . Do not detach the rails.

Front

Align the bottom hole on the mounting rail with the bottom hole in the U-space(marked in step 3 above). Use the flat, Phillips head screws(10-32)and conical washers to attach the front rail to the rack. Position the rails so that the lip of the rail is on the bottom.

3

4

Expand the rails so that it spans from the front rack post to the back rack post. Replace the two screws (removed in step 1) that hold the rail sections together.

Back

Attach the rail to the back rack post using the same hardware (10-32flat head screws and conical washers) used in step 2. Repeat the process for the other rails.

Caution:

3

990-7032A,Revision 3 7/01

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

Load the UPS into the Rack

Supporting the UPS from the front and back, carefully align the unit with the rails. Slide the UPS into position.

Attach the Mounting Brackets to the Rack

Use the ornamental screws supplied with the UPS to attach the mounting brackets to the rack post.

2. Hardwire the Electrical Connection

Caution:

The electrical connection must be made by an authorized electrician according to national and local regulations. Verify that the supply line contains a 25 Amp circuit breaker BEFORE hardwiring the UPS.

Ensure that the batteries are not installed in the UPS until the hardwiring is complete. Incorporate a readily accessible disconnect device in the fixed wiring design.

1.Select the appropriate wire size and connectors. For most applications, #10 AWG (5 sq. mm) wire should be sufficient.

2.The input wiring terminal is located on the rear panel of the UPS. Remove the access door by unscrewing the single screw which holds it in place.

3.Slide the wire input plate to the left on rack mount units and up on towers and remove it. This will expose the input wiring terminal.

4.Use a screwdriver or any hard object to detach the circular knockout. You may need to use pliers to fully detach the knockout.

5.Feed the wire cable through the hole in the wire input plate. Using a threaded lock nut, fasten the plate to the selected cable or conduit connector.

6.Use a knife or pliers to strip off the plastic on the end of the cable to expose the copper wire. Strip all three wires.

7.Use a flathead screwdriver to connect the wires to the terminal block inside the UPS. Loosen the screw, then feed the copper wire into the terminal block and tighten the screw. Connect the protective earth ground to the terminal block at the position marked with the ground symbol (). The UPS wiring color code is:

GREEN for GROUND WHITE for NEUTRAL BLACK for HOT

8.Once all the wires are connected to the terminal block, reconnect the wire input plate to the UPS. Align the plate, position it into the grooves, and slide it to the right.

9.Inspect the connections and location of the excess wires before installing the access door.

10.Replace the access door and fasten with the screw (removed in step 2).
