APC RS 1500 82v output


Many UPS Systems have a squared wave when working on batteries. Cheap multimeters do not give the correct measure on squared waves. Connect a 100 watts resistive lamp to the output of the UPS, if the light is almost the same when UPS is working on batteries, everythinf is fine.

Apc xs800 new batteries


I Bought two RBC32's and had to hook them up to the connector and did it wrong on the first try. Make sure you connect the yellow to the Red terminal on one battery and the Black on the other, then connet the remaining red to red on one and black to black to the other. Once I did that and plugged it back in everything worked fine.

Mge pulsar ex10 stop after 5 min with 60W charge,after I changed the pack of 3 bateries with one new.if I switch off and on works again 5 min. all 3 bateries are good,Vcharge=13,6v Vin use=12,3v thanks


Some economics UPS have a functin called "Green Function". A timer disconnect the load after 5 min to prevent damages on internal circuit.
You can confirm this:

- battery remain to good level charge
- UPS restart for other 5 min if you press On button

See manual if you can disable this features.

House power fluctuates, UPS and computer die.


Sounds like the internal battery of the UPS needs replacement. Contact APC and ask for a qoute for a replacement battery/service. It'll probably work out a cheaper to buy new.

Make sure you dispose of the old unit properly if you do replace

APC external Backup battery is not working plz


It may just need a new battery. The UPS will do a self test on the battery when you turn it on. It may have tried to read the battery and the result came back as "failed". The batteries last about 3-5 years, even less if you live in an area with bad power. The batteries are very easy to change. You can buy replacements at www.batteryinternational.com/apc-backups-es-be350es-ups-battery-ups-batteries-f1.html

Less back up time


I found the following on APC's web-site for the APC Back-UPS, this will hopefully fix the problem:
You can also perform a manual runtime calibration. This could be done if you have changed your equipment load or battery. Stop the PowerChute software from running; disconnect the serial cable between the computer and UPS. Next unplug the UPS from the wall and let it run on battery until it reaches low battery. Once it reaches low battery plug it back into the wall outlet and let it recharge. Recharge time can take up to 4 hours.

Common Failure mode of APC 500 UPS


I would recommend replacing APC UPSs with ONEAC ONEPlus Power Conditioned UPSs, which have a perfect ground reference, longer lasting and more reliable batteries, and a 5 Year Warranty (2 Yrs on Batteries).

APC back UPS 400 fails to give back up


I have the same problem with an apc smart-ups VS 650.

 

New batteries - charge in batteries is good (also tested under load).

 

When AC power fails, no power is supplied to PC connectors by the UPS.

 

UPS self test works fine. UPS does not report any problems via software - Power Management under Windows XP.
