Question about IBM Tripp Lite Internet Office 300VA (31P9552) UPS System

Open Question

Increase run time on APC NS 600 (part # BN600)??

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?

APC Back-UPS ES500. Battery is new replacement UB1280, and battery has charge and runs fine if unit not plugged in. However, if unit is plugged in to power back-up side outlets in unit don't work.


there are 2 parts of a UPS .
the charge side
and (battery is obvious)
the inverter side.
if the charger fails, all is lost. (are the batteries in backwards?)
if the charger works (volt meter tells you that)
then the inverter is bad. (this unit is not full time UPS , but part time, this means it switches over to inverter at power fail.
(on full time sys. inverter runs full time, like the name states)
the unit, you mean the load right.?
the UPS side plugged into a load. and the load is now dead.

the Backup plugs should work if the mains are hot.
if you kill mains, the inverter will fire off, (hear the squeal?)
and give you 500 watts for some minutes, sucking the batteries dry. (see load run time curves)
I used to do service on HUGE UPS systems, some with 100s of batteries. 3 to 5kw too.
on ours there is a port on the rear , we connect and can
check everything "BEST brand" even charge voltage.
did you look on APC site for special software and connections?

the manual does cover trouble shooting, ever read that?
RTM? start there, its online, for sure.

I get an alarm with continuos beep sound everytime I plug in the unit, even without load


Time to change the batteries. Open the UPS and get the battery type numbers and spec written on the batteries. Locate a local battery distributor and you can order batteries. APC uses industry batteries.

The batteries last an average of 2 to 3 years. They wear out inside. You can also order APC original batteries if you feel insecure about purchasing them from a battery dealer. APC will charge more for the batteries, but they will be original to the UPS type.

We have a new 60 inch LED Sharp TV. Will an APC #BN600R battery backup, 600 VA 360 watts, handle a power outage or surge for this TV and a Dish network DVR??


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.

New batteries in Smart UPS 700 only lasts 2 minutes at 30% load


If you blistered your older batteries a good chance your inverter is going or will go bad. The heat alone can do damage to your components. Time to replace the unit and remember next time not to wait so long to replace your batteries. Replacement of batteries every three to approaching four years is a good idea.

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.
