Can I change the input power plug on my 120Vac Smart-UPS?

Issue:
Changing input plugs on Smart-UPS 2000VA or larger

Product Line:
Smart-UPS 

Environment:
Smart-UPS 2000VA or larger

Cause:
All Smart-UPS 2000VA or larger have an input plug that is not a standard 5-15 household style plug.

Resolution:
The higher capacity of these UPS models require an input plug that is either 20amp or 30 amp (depending on model) rather than the traditional 15 amp household plug you may be more familiar with. The UL listing of the UPS assumes that the UPS is using the input plug for which it was designed. Modifying the input plug may affect the UL or other regulatory compliance. Schneider Electric does not recommend modifying the input plug of your Smart-UPS UPS or attached Smart-UPS Accesories (IE: Stepdown Transformers, PDU strips, ETC) 

Note: If you decide to go against this recommendation and change the input plug of your UPS, please be aware that the functional capacity of the UPS will be limited by the input circuit.
(I E: An SMT3000 being supplied 15 amps is effectively a 1500VA UPS rather than the 3000VA that it is rated for.)

Smart-UPS Stacking Height Limitations

This document describes the acceptable stacking configurations of Smart-UPS products.  To achieve the minimum possible footprint, these products can be stacked following the guidelines below. It is important to consider the effect of extra weight on any raised floor environments.

SU Products:

 The UPS and batteries can be stacked 25.5"" high. Possible configurations include:

3 SU48XLBPs stacked together
1 SU2200XL on bottom, 1 SU48XLBP on top
 

SURT Products:

1KVA to 10KVA SURT units are not designed to be stacked, but rather should be connected in a tower configuration as indicated in the users manual.
15KVA and 20KVA units may be stacked to a total height of not more than 18U, which would be a main UPS enclosure and 2 battery enclosures.

How do I hardwire 10kva and 20kva transformers in a 208/120 or 240/120 environment

Issue:
Implementing a hardwire stepdown transformer in a 208v or 240v environment


Product Line:

Smart-UPS / Symmetra

Environment:

APTF10KT01, APTF10KW01, and APTF20KW01, All Serial Numbers

Cause:

Unbalanced UPS outputs require a stepdown transformer to power 120v loads


Resolution:

This document refers to installing  the APTF10KT01, APTF10KW01, and APTF20KW01 transformers in a North American 120/240 or 120/208 environment. For installations in other regions please consult the users manual.

The wiring block outputs are as follows:


For domestic use, make sure that the Terminal Block Jumper is installed between the Ground Terminal and Terminal 8 on the output wiring block, as illustrated on page 8 of the user manual. Please also make sure that the input voltage switch is in the correct position.

The step-down transformer provides 240/120 output as 2 120v hots, a neutral, and a ground. It provides 208v output as a 120v hot, an 88v hot, and a ground. The 120v hot (terminal  7) and the 88v hot (terminal 9) are 180 degrees out of phase. You will measure 208v from terminals 7 to 9. The step-down transformer is not able to provide 2 120v hots that are 120 degrees out of phase as you would see with utility power.



 Note: If your installation requires both 208v and 120v output power you will need 2 separate subpanels: a 240v/120v panel and a dedicated 208v subpanel.

How do I know which battery to replace in my SURT15K or SURT20K UPS?


Issue:

How do I know which battery to replace in my SURT15K or SURT20K UPS?

Product Line:

Smart-UPS Online

Environment:

All 15Kva and 20Kva models, All Serial Numbers

Cause:

Batteries in a Smart-UPS need to be replaced every 3-5 years based on useage and environment.

Resolution:

When the UPS alerts you that it has a bad battery, the red LED on the affected battery frame will illuminate. The UPS does not monitor the individual battery modules and is unable to tell you exactly which pair(s) of modules is bad. You should walways replace all of the modules in a frame at the same time. Each frame uses (Qty 4) APCRBC140 Replacement Battery Cartridges. Each APCRBC140 contains 2 modules, for a total of 8 modules in each battery frame. If you have other attached frames of a similar vintage, it is likely that they will need to be replaced as well. We do not reccomend mixing old and new batteries in the same UPS. On average your batteries should last 3-5 years. Environment and application can have a dramatic affect on the life cycle of your batteries.

Note: The replacement battery for these models used to be RBC44. This model battery was replaced with part number APCRBC140. Runtime and battery life is exactly the same for both model batteries.

Hardwiring to 120v, 208v, and 240v loads from a 208v/240v SmartUPS RT UPS


Issue:

Hardwiring to 120v, 208v, and 240v loads from a 208v/240v SmartUPS RT  UPS

Product Line: 

Smart-UPS RT

Environment:

All models with "T" in the suffix of the part number. (IE: SURT3000XLT, SURT8000RMXLT6U)
Note: This does *NOT* include SURTD5000RMXLP3U or SURTD6000RMXLP3U. These two models are split phase 4 wire (Hot/Hot/Neutral/Ground) units and do not require a stepdown transformer to support 120v loads.

Cause:

Smart-UPS RT units designed for 208v/240v environments have unbalanced 3 wire outputs and require a transformer to supply 120v loads.

Resolution:
  • The 208V/240V Smart-UPS RT is a single phase UPS with a 3 wire unbalanced output.
  • They require 2 hots and a ground on the input, and 2 hots and a ground on the output.
  • They do not use a neutral.
  • They require a stepdown transformer to power 120v loads and provide a Neutral

The output of the UPS is unbalanced, meaning that from hot to hot you will see 208 volts (or 240v if so configured), however it is not two balanced 120 volt legs as you would traditionally see from 208v/240v utility power. The two output legs are 180 degrees out of phase and from hot to hot they will measure 208v or 240v. All of these units default to 208v out and can be configured to 240v via the network management card or LCD interface.

Attempting to hardwire out to a 120V load without the use of a transformer will result in load drops and possible load damage!

In addition to a selection of smaller 5kva plug in step-down transformers, APC manufactures 3 larger hardwire step-downs in 10kva and 20kva capacities - APTF10KT01APTF10KW01, and the APTF20KW01
All three of these units create their output in a similar fashion. A neutral is created via a center tap on the transformer.

To supply a 120 v load, the transformer provides:

  • 2 120 volt legs that are 180 degrees out of phase
  • Ground
  • Neutral

This creates a traditional 240 v/120 v panel where there are 2 legs of 120 v and from hot to hot you would measure 240 volts.

To supply a 208 v load, the transformer provides:

  • 120 v Hot Leg
  • 88 v Hot Leg (180 degrees out of phase from the 120 v leg)
  • Ground

In this configuration you would measure 208 volts from Hot to Hot.

For detailed wiring directions, diagrams, and specifications, please consult the users manual for your step-down transformer.

Using both of these configurations you can support both 208v and 120v loads, however you are not able to output to a traditional 208v / 120v panel where there are 2 120v legs that are 120 degrees out of phase. If a 208v / 120v output panel is required you must use one of our split phase solutions. We offer 2 split phase RT units (SURTD5000RMXLP3U and SURTD6000RMXLP3U) as well as the entire Symmetra LX line. A split phase UPS will require a 4 wire input and will output 2 balanced 120 v legs, a ground, and a neutral. The split phase RT units will require the SURT018 hardwire kit to be used in a hardwired application.

Battery Discharge During Storage


Issue:

The shelf life of a UPS battery under storage conditions depends on battery ratings and ambient temperature.

Product Line:

All UPS products

Environment:

All models, All Serial Numbers

Cause:

Normal behavior.

Resolution:

The shelf life of a UPS battery under storage conditions depends on battery ratings and ambient temperature. For each APC UPS family the expected battery discharge rate is presented for various storage conditions.

Temperature Effects:

The type of battery used in all UPS products has a "self-discharge" characteristic. This is the amount of charge the battery will naturally lose even if it is disconnected. At 20° Celsius, a battery will lose 3% of its capacity per month. However, at 40° Celsius, a battery will lose 10% of its capacity per month.


For Back-UPS, Back-UPS Office, Back-UPS AVR, Back-UPS Pro, Smart-UPS v/s:

When any of these APC UPS models has been powered "off", the battery discharge is equal to the self-discharge rate.


With Smart-UPS:
There are two ways to turn off a Smart-UPS. When applicable, if the UPS is switched off by using the rear switch, then the battery discharge is equal to the self-discharge rate. However, if the UPS is switched off with the front panel button, then the self discharge rate at 20° Celsius will increase from the natural 3% to 5% per month. The lost power goes into a small micropower circuit which is needed in order for the UPS to "remember" if it is supposed to restart automatically when the AC power is restored.


With SmartUPS RT (1kva to 10kva):

Any time a SmartUPS RT (1kva to 10kva) will be turned off without input power present, or allowed to operate in bypass for over 24 hours, the battery modules should be disconnected to prevent unnecessary discharge. Depending on the health of the batteries, they can discharge below start-up voltage (approximately 85vDC) within 72 hours if the UPS is not operating normally.


With SmartUPS RT (15kva to 20kva):

Any time a SmartUPS RT (15kva to 20kva) will be turned off without input power present, the battery modules should be disconnected to prevent unnecessary discharge. However, unlike the smaller RT units, the 15kva and 20kva SmartUPS RT's are able to charge batteries while in bypass mode.


With Matrix-UPS:

There are two ways to turn off a Matrix-UPS. If the UPS is switched off using the rear switch, then the battery discharge rate is slightly higher than the natural self-discharge rate, which is 5% at 20° Celsius. The extra power goes into "bleeder" circuits which are required to discharge the large capacitors inside the unit in order to protect service personnel.

However, if the UPS is switched off with the front touch switch, then the self discharge rate at 20° Celsius will increase from the natural 5% to 7% per month. The additional lost power goes into a small micropower circuit which is needed for the UPS to "remember" if it is supposed to restart automatically when the AC power is restored.

If a Matrix-UPS is to be stored in this condition (i.e. off) for a long period of time, it is recommended that the batteries be detached from the Matrix-UPS Electronics Unit, as this will reduce the self-discharge rate to 3% per month.


With Symmetra, Symmetra RM and Symmetra LX:

Any time a Symmetra will be turned off or allowed to operate in bypass for over 24 hours, the battery modules should be disconnected/disabled to prevent unnecessary discharge. Depending on the Symmetra model in use, batteries can discharge below start-up voltage (approximately 90vDC) within 72 hours if the UPS is not operating normally.


Bottom Line:

APC Batteries should be charged to 100% within 6 months of purchase by the end user. If the batteries are to be stored for an extended period of time after that, the following procedures are strongly recommended in order to keep the batteries from discharging beyond the safe limit:
 

  • If the ambient temperature during storage is - 15°C to + 30°C (+ 5°F to + 86°F), perform a full recharge cycle at least every six months.
  • In environments where the ambient temperature is + 30°C to + 45°C (+ 86°F to + 113°F), perform a full recharge cycle at least every three months.
