If you want to have 1 Hour back up time with your symmetra 16KVA UPS what you need is to get one additional Symmetra XR Battery frame and a battery pack same as the battery pack installed on your existing Symmetra frame. for the runtime issue you need to compute if how many percent the load that you have right now. From there you will know how many battery packs you need to obtain the 1 hour back up time.

Apc beeping twice every 2 seconds

The battery inside the APC is "weak", and the "beep" is telling you to replace the battery inside the APC, or, maybe cheaper, to buy a new APC.

I have an Symmetra RM APC and there is an amber light showing and a beeping about every 30 seconds.

Hi Ewiesemann,

The amber light on the UPS usually means that the unit is 'on battery' -- meaning that input power is affected. Check to make sure that unit is plugged in and check to make sure that a breaker on a panel feeding the UPS power hasn't tripped.

Hope this helps.

Matrix 3000 "bottom fan fail" need a replacement fan. APC said they don't have in stock and is discontinued.

The APC Matrix-UPS 3000 Isolation Unit IU bottom fan APC part number appears to be 490-0006-A. There are three OEM parts that APC appears to have used:
NMB Technologies 4715KL-05W-B30-P00
Japan Servo CNDC24B7-34
Sunon KDE2412PMB1-6A
But any fan that has the following specs should work:
119mm x 119mm x 38mm, plastic (black) 94V-0, ball bearing, 2-wire, 24 VDC (9.0V min, 10V to 27.6V), 2800 RPM, 80 CFM min, 41 dbA max

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.

Back up problem

The time will lower the longer u keep using it. Every (Chemical) battery needs to be replaced periodically and maybe its time to change your UPS batteries too. Since you were using double battery, it is supposed to be replaced every 4 yrs or so if it is used regularly.....sodeep
