We've got a 9330 UPS that's giving us a no bypass error. We're using this UPS to step down power (to US voltage) and provide battery backup. It's working well, but it's giving us 60Hz on the output but our mains are 50Hz, it sees 50Hz and is wired for 50Hz at the back, but it's giving us 60Hz out. Do you know to change the output to 50Hz?

The problem is probably not input voltage. Most UPS's will step up or down voltage to give, in your case, 220v. Depends on which outlet you connect to. Irons are resistance heaters, and as such will draw a significant amount of power. e.g. most consumer USP's will warn NOT to connect a laser printer to the battery back up outlet, but rather non-backed up outlets. Better yet, IMHO, connect it directly to a primary connection (i.e. a wall outlet).
Consumer or end user UPS's are aimed at providing enough power to allow you to save work. I can't think of a reason to need a battery backup for an Iron. I'd use the UPS for your computer, monitor, phone system is you use VOIP, or low draw wall warts.
This unit will require you to Brain dead the whole UPS.
To see if it is actually a condition that exists with the hardware or if it was just a lock condition.
1)Power down unit completely
2)Unplug all batteries
3)Unplug from wall
4)Leave unplugged for about 5 minutes or so WITH NO POWER AT ALL.
5)Plug batteries back in
6)Plug back into wall
7) Turn unit back on
Log into console of UPS and see if the condition returns.
If it does not return your good to go.
If the error returns. You have to replace the WHOLE battery pack.
APC has told me their units are typically good for 4-6 years, after that their units cannot hold the same tolerances as they did when they were brand new.
It's unlikely that you will be able to get a new one. The 9330 was discontinued many years ago though Eaton continues to service these models and provide replacement parts/batteries. I suggest that you call 800-356-5794 to see if Eaton has a partner that has any complete systems still in stock or in service inventory. The new UPS units are the 9355 and the 9390: www.eaton.com/9355 and www.eaton.com/9390 These new units are more compact, are more energy efficient and incorporate more advanced technology for monitoring and communication.
