Question about Powerware 9120 UPS System
I turn on the UPS without anything connected to it. It stays a few seconds on "On Line" then it changes to Low O/P V
What can be the problem?
Fault: Low Ouput Voltage
Cause: Surge Taken by load / Short Circuit on load / Fault in inverter
Remedy: Remove load and restart UPS / Try a different load / Repair or swap out
If you need spares or price for repair contact Eaton Power Quality Ltd - the new name for Powerware - 01753 608700

Hi to All
I had the same issue where the UPS started (loaded or not) and immediately sounded an alarm with Low O/P V and it tripped the breaker at the mains. Tried starting the UPS with no power to the device as well (cold start) with no success.
I removed all batteries to reset the UPS and powered up again, same thing happened.
I then moved the UPS without any batteries to another power point in my home (different breaker on the mains) and device booted with "DC bus Fault"
Powered everything down, loaded all the batteries and it booted up 100%!!! So it turned out to be the breaker for that location... Worth a try and will save you allota tom!
