.

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 40ºC (+32 to +104ºF)), 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.

In order to maintain compliance with the EMC directive, output cords attached to the UPS should not exceed 10 meters in length.

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 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 UPS (without batteries installed) requires two people to install due to its weight.
