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 external battery pack connected, 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. Battery replacement using the procedures below is permissible. 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..

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 external batteries until the utility line returns to safe levels.

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, four IEC jumper cords, one C19 jumper cord, and a cable assembly to connect the battery.

Caution:

The 5000 VA model must be moved by a forklift due to its weight.

Installation

Installing your UPS requires six steps:

1.Position the UPS in the desired location..

2.Hardwire the electrical connections on the input and output sides (must be done by an authorized electrician).

3.Connect the external batteries (UXBP48M or equivalent fused battery packs are recommended).

4.Power up the UPS.

5.Install PowerChute UPS monitoring software and accessories.

6.Program the UPS with the number of external battery packs connected.

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.

UPS are heavy. Select a location sturdy enough to handle the weight.

Select a 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 is outside 0 to 40ΓC (+32 to +104ΓF) or humidity is outside.0 to 95%,

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 Ampere 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 and output wiring terminals are located on the rear panel of the UPS. Remove the hardwire cover by unscrewing the single screw that holds it in place.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

3.

Use a screwdriver to loosen the Strain clamp .

 

 

 

4.

Feed the input wire cable through the strain clamp on the left side and feed the output wire cable through the

 

strain clamp on the right side.

 

 

 

 

5.

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

6.

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. Make sure the terminal block is wired from

3. Connect the External Batteries

The SU5000UXI contains no internal batteries. The figure shows the location of the battery pack connector on the UPS. Battery pack connectors are color coded; the 48 Vdc UXBP48M connector is blue. 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.

The SU5000UXI can support a maximum of 10 battery packs.

If a DC bus is to be used for inverter operation, a voltage between 42 and 45 volts is recommended for continuous operation greater than two hours at room temperature.

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.

2.Turn the clamp over and loosely attach one end at the edge of the connector opening in the UPS.

3.Holding the clamp aside, insert the battery pack connector into the UPS.

4.Secure the connector clamp.

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.

Correctly completed UXI installation with two battery packs.

4. Connect Power to the UPS

The main SU5000UXI output is hardwired in Step 2. Hardwire the Electrical Connection, page 2. The auxiliary IEC and C19 connectors are not designed for equipment requiring more than 10A total.

Caution:

DO NOT use a standard serial interface cable to connect to the Computer Interface Port on the UPS. Standard serial interface cables are incompatible with the UPS connector. Use the cable provided with your UPS.

Turn on all connected equipment.
