1.3 Safety Notes

WARNING: Read the following information carefully! Disregard of these safety notes may endanger your life and health as well as the functioning of your equipment and the safety of your data.

WARNING: This equipment services power from more than one source. The output receptacles may have voltage even when the unit is unplugged.

UPSs present a different safety issue than most electrical equipment because unplugging the UPS puts it into backup mode. Unplugging the UPS does not remove the electrical charge. To ensure that the UPS is off, push BYPASS (for a minimum of 1 second) before unplugging the UPS from the mains.

CAUTION: Operating this equipment without proper grounding may present a risk of electrical shock.

Do not use AC adaptors with only two conductors to connect the input line cord to the wall socket as this will not connect the earth ground to the equipment.

WARNING: Dangerous voltages are present within this unit! There are nouser-serviceableparts inside. Any repairs or modifications by the user may result inout-of-warrantyrepair charges, unsafe electrical conditions, or violation of electrical code.

This device complies with the relevant safety regulations for uninterruptible power supplies for use in a controlled office environment. If you have any questions, please contact Chloride Technical Service at 1- 800-879-5011.

Transport the unit only in suitable packaging (protect against jolts and shocks).

If the equipment is moved indoors from a cold environment, condensation may occur. Before you place the equipment in service it must be absolutely dry. An acclimatization period of at least two hours is required.

This equipment must be installed in an indoor, temperature controlled environment that is free of conductive contaminants. See chapter 10, “Active Tower and Rackmount Specifications” on page 22 for specific environmental limits.

The Active equipment has a safety-testedpower cable and may only be connected to a properly grounded receptacle.

The switch (see chapter 2, “Display and Operation Elements (Active)” on page 3) does not isolate the device (UPS) from the mains. To isolate completely from the mains, the main switch must be switched off and the power plug disconnected.

CAUTION: Removing mains power may not remove power from the device (UPS) output. See instructions above to properly remove power from output.

In case of interruption of the mains voltage, the integrated battery maintains the power supply to the connected equipment.

Lay all cables so that nobody can stand on them or trip over them. When connecting the device to the power supply, follow the instructions in the chapter on “Active Installation and Commissioning” on page 11.

No data transmission lines should be connected or disconnected during a thunderstorm.

Make sure that no objects (e.g. pins, necklaces, paper clips, etc.) get inside the device.

In emergencies (e.g. damaged case, controls or power cables, penetration of liquids or foreign matter) put the device into BYPASS, disconnect the power plug and contact Chloride Technical Services at 1-800-879-5011.

Do not connect equipment that will overload the UPS (e.g. laser printers or vacuum cleaners) or demand DC-current(e.g.half-waverectifiers or hair dryers).

When cleaning the unit, follow the instructions in chapter 7, “Maintenance (Active)” on page 19.

The sum of the leakage currents (protective conductor current) of the UPS and the connected devices must not exceed 3.5 mA for the types Active 700, 1000, 2000 and 3000.

Chloride Active UPS is UL listed under UL1778 for North American units.

Chloride Active and E-SeriesUPS User Manual

Chapter 2 Display and Operation Elements (Active)

The Uninterruptible Power System (UPS) is connected between AC power and the load. It protects the load against mains disturbances, especially power failures.

Its operation is based on the on-lineprinciple. The connected load is supplied power through the UPS’s inverter. Power disturbances from the mains are suppressed which increases the loads’ operational security (PC, network server,multi-usersystems etc.)

In the event of a mains failure, maintenance-freebatteries provide an uninterrupted supply of energy. In practice, mains failures are of relatively short duration, dependent on the mains quality. Therefore, the UPS’ energy is in most cases sufficient to ensure continuous operation of the connected systems, until the mains is reestablished. In the event of a longer lasting mains failure it allows for controlled shutdown of connected systems.

The UPS indicates by acoustical (buzzer) and optical (LED) alarms that a mains failure has occurred and is still persistent. Battery runtimes vary depending upon load, number of batteries and environmental conditions.

The following chart shows the approximate values of the emergency runtime (assuming fully charged battery at the onset of the mains failure.)

The most reliable method for determining actual battery runtime is the application of Chloride MopUPS® software. With this software, the prospective remaining battery capacity is indicated before and during an AC power failure. Furthermore, shutdown procedures can be automated. Depending on the application program, operating system and computer hardware, it can be ensured that in the event of a power failure the application programs are automatically closed, the subscribers logged in at the server are logged out, the data is stored and the operating systems are shut down. For further information please refer to our publication about the Chloride ManageUPS™NET SNMP Adapter.

After return of the mains voltage, the UPS automatically initiates a restart. The connected systems are restarted according to their specifications.

In the event of overload or internal failure, the load is supplied from the mains via an automatic bypass. As soon as the normal status is reestablished, automatic switchover to inverter operation is performed.

This operation manual contains all relevant information to install and operate the UPS.

Chapter 5 Operational Characteristics (Active)

5.1 Ready for Operation Check

To check the emergency supply feature of the UPS, it must be disconnected from the mains.

When correctly functioning with charged batteries, an acoustical signal in intervals of 4 seconds will be heard. The LED “LINE” (line voltage) indicator disappears. When the interval between the acoustical signals is reduced to 1 second, the UPS will supply energy for a maximum of 3 more minutes before it is automatically switched off.

The load will be supplied from the batteries during the specified emergency supply period. If this is not so, then please check in chapter 8 “Troubleshooting (Active)” on page 20.

Reconnect the UPS with the mains.

The UPS is now again ready for normal operation. Please note, that the batteries have to be recharged before the complete emergency supply period is again available.

5.2 Self Test

The self test is a LED test.

With the UPS connected to the AC power, switch | has to be operated for at least 1 second.

Acknowledgment of the input is given by a single acoustical signal.

The elements of the LED “BATTERY” chain are illuminated according to the battery’s load status. The “LINE” and “BYPASS” indicators are illuminated.

Initially all elements of the LED “LOAD” chain are illuminated. Beginning with the top indicator, all elements of this chain will extinguish one after the other. Thereafter the elements are on according to the UPS load status.

The “BYPASS” indicator turns off after approximately 5 seconds and the “Inverter” indicator illuminates. The load is supplied through the inverter, the energy is taken from the mains.

5.3 Modes of Operation

There are three modes of operation, when the UPS is switched on.

5.3.1 Normal Operation, Inverter On (Mains Available)

Lights Illuminated

Fig. 14: Front Display Panel During Normal Operations (Mains Available)

The loads are supplied through the inverter, the energy is taken from the mains.

5.3.2 Battery Operation, Inverter On (Mains Failure)

Lights Illuminated

During Power Failure

Fig. 15: Front Display Panel During Battery Operation (Mains Failure)

In the event of a mains failure, the inverter continues to supply the loads without interruption, the energy is taken from the battery.

In this operation mode, an acoustical signal is given in intervals of approximately 4 seconds. When reaching the battery’s energy minimum, this signal is given at one second intervals.

5.3.3 Bypass Operation, Inverter OFF (Overload > 140%)

Lights Illuminated in

BYPASS Operation

Fig. 16: Front Display Panel During Bypass Operation (Overload > 140%)

In the event of large overload (> 140%) switch-overto bypass is initiated and the inverter is blocked. The energy is taken from the mains.

This is not a normal operating status. In the event of mains failure the loads will no longer be supplied (no UPS operation).

Chapter 6 Description of the Interface (Active)

The Active UPS has a standard interface COM A and an optional interface COM B. Protocol data transfer signal exchange is through COM A RS232 interface or the optional interface (COM B).

These interfaces can be used for:

Direct communication between UPS and a computer.

Integration of the UPS as client into a network with centralized monitoring.

Transfer of operational states to external alarm systems.

The necessary communication software packages and interface cables are available as accessories.

6.1 Standard Interface COM A

The 9-pinSUB-Dconnector (pin contacts) contains the RS 232 signals, 5 output signals and 1 input signal. The RS232 signal RXD can also be used as input signal, when the sequential interface is not used.

The 5 alarm outputs are open-collectoroutputs.

Fig. 17: COM A signal Definition and Connection

The interface COM A is galvanically separated from all other circuits.
