Question about APC Expandable, Extended Run-Time Battery Backup (APCSU2200RMXLT) UPS System

Open Question

I have APC NS 600 (part# BN600) ups. Apparently this unit is programmed to shut off at 60 minutes, no matter what the load. I am trying to run low wattage lighting (alert lights) for extended periods during power outages. Is there a way to hack this?

ok how long you brought the ups and how long you had not start the the ups usaully ups is power dead change the battery and try to power up it should work be sure that all connection is connect properly before power up the ups.. if the ups doest work that will be the mainboard problem you hav to call for vedor to repair the unit.. yes these fuse for the ups but it unlikely to be blown so should worry of the fuse it self.. change of battery come with different spefc for the ups.. eg su3000rmi3u, sua3000rmi3u, su3000rmxl3u --- battery replacement is 8 pcs of 12v 7ah. sua3000rmi2u-- 6 pcs of 12v 7ah or 8 pcs 12v 5ah. su3000rminet-- 4 pcs 12v 17ah,

Your main control board is defective, you need a new unit.

SOURCE: APC Back-UPS ES 500: green light flashes&continuous warning tone

On this unit, the likely culprit is the battery and that it needs to be replaced.

With that, you may want to think about the pros and cons of replacement versus buying an entirely new unit.

This unit is a relatively low end ups and the surge supression uses MOVs that wear out with repeated absorption of energetic spikes. That's why the better (and higher cost) UPSs and surge suppressors don't use them. They're not really that good anyway due to their relatively high transient impedance. The better equipment uses a "transorb" -- basically a back-to-back high voltage zener diode optimized for low breakover impedance and high instantaneous power capability. Unless the transient exceeds the design parameters of the circuit, these do not wear out and do not degrade. That being said, I will assume that you would likely replace this unit with a similar one.
The flashing may not be the battery at all and may be the charging circuitry, thus your new battery may not live very long (half the life that you would expect.

Many batteries out there are refurbs and have issues as all used parts do.

If you contact APC, they will likely give you a 35% discount on purchasing a new product.

The difference in price in the battery replacement vs. ups replacement at this level may only be a few dollars more.

I promise that I am not a UPS salesman, I just deal with many on a daily basis; therefore I am giving my two cents to try to thelp you avoid problems a year from now.

Hello,
Yes this UPS will protect the TV and the DVR.
The TV is pretty energy efficient, and uses just under 100watts powered on. The DVR uses under 30 watts, so under heavy load you won't go over 150 watts if just these two devices are plugged into the battery backup side of the UPS. I'm not sure how long this UPS battery last's in a power outage, but since you are not using it to the full 360 watts, you should get double time out of it, though of course, its best to power off your devices as soon as you can. Regards, Chris

Dear sir, I am Mohan-chennai.I have APC 6kva/192vdc ups system.But last few days it not giving backup.so we called one ups technician.He told batteries problem.So we have changed hole set new...


The problems seems to be that your UPS has errors in the detection, charging or the inverter drive. I am not sure if the unit is old but if so the circuit could also consume more current.
I would request that the matter be handled professionally by the APC authorized center . The UPS must be calibrated . tested and checked for EFFICIENCY. If not you will get the required back up. Is suspect that the buttery must have been checked properly before it was replaced.
Alternatively you can have a UPS only for switch over but supported by a gen-set. Hence you will require only a back up time for about 15 minutes max. before the gen-set can be switched on which is better in the long run compared with the investment on batteries which keeps recurring.

APC UPS 500 and 600, both say (PowerChute) commercial power is off and running on battery when the commercial power is fine. They end up shutting down my systems. After a while they run normal.


This is usually caused by a popped circuit breaker on the UPS. From the UPS Manual:

Disconnect non-essential equipment from the
Back-UPS. Reset the circuit breaker (located
on the rear panel of the Back-UPS) by pushing
the circuit breaker button fully inward
until it catches.

APC UPS 1500 w/full load forces immediate reboot at pwr failure


Hello,

With a 980watt load the run time is only 7 minutes on a brand new battery. If you have the system on full load your run time will be much less and it has likely damaged the battery. here is the APC web site page for your model. If you are running that much equipment I think you need either a bigger UPS or another 1500 and spread the load out.

APC UPS no power


The unit might have a dead battery, blow fuse, or a bad board.
Your best bet is to talk to an APC rep. Worst case, APC has a trade in program, and can give you a discount on a new one.
Good luck.

Desk top APC UPS ES750 not communicating


Here is an answer I got from APC when one of my client got the same problem as you did:

The error message would pop up if the link between the computer and the UPS is weak. I cannot rule out a problem with the cable or the UPS. In order to confirm the same please try the following steps which might help :

1) Ensure that the USB cable is properly connected to the USB port of the computer.

2) If the PC was powered on before the UPS, communication will not be achieved until you disconnect and reconnect the USB cable to the host. In this case, you need to disconnect and reconnect the USB cable to establish communication.

3) Some other software is polling your USB port for another device, thus causing the UPS software to temporarily lose communication with your UPS. If this is the case, you would need to shut down that application.

4) If you have any other USB devices connected to the PC, disconnect them and then try plugging in the cable.

If the issue persists, please visit the following link which lists few troubleshooting steps :
