Sounds like battery failed, check the connections and clean them, then try it again. see if the battery is ok, check voltage, and shake the battery, if you hear little objects rattle inside, it is bad. i hope this is helpful,good luck,glen also consider the unit could be shot.

We had a power outage for about 45 minutes a few days ago. Ever since then the Powerware 3110 has been beeping. I turned it off and left it plugged in overnight and when I turned it back on the beeping...


This could be several things, fortunately the device should actually be helping you to diagnose the issue. There are different beeps for different issues. They are as follows:

1 Beep Every 5 Seconds = Power Outage\Loose Plug Connection\Tripped Circuit Breaker\Power Cord Damage or Failure

2 Beeps Every 5 Seconds = Low Battery Alarm

3 Beeps Every 5 Seconds = Battery Needs Charging\Service\Replacement

3 Beeps Every 5 Minutes = The Battery is discharged and battery power is unavailable (If this continues battery replacement may be necessary)

1 Beep Ever 1/2 Second = Power Requirements exceed the UPS Capacity (remove some equipment to lighten the load on the unit)

Continuous Beep = Short Circuit / Input Voltage out of Range / UPS Fault (Likely replacement of entire unit)

That should help diagnose the actual issue. If it turns out the battery needs to be replaced they can be found online for around $20. A simple google search for Powerware 3110 Battery should return what you're after. Good luck!

I have a ups system that i am feeding with 240 vac phase to phase and both phase to ground readings are 120 vac but when i go to battery power i get 240 vac phase to phase and 1 phase to ground i get 220...


No, I don't think there is anything wrong. Your UPS seems to have a single phase 240V output, which seems to be "floating" (no or only a weak ground reference).
Just be aware that you can only power 240V equipment from it. If you need 120V for some devices _and_ if the UPS provides sine wave output, you could use a step down transformer for this purpose.

Strange noise comes out from the ups after a power cut


The Back-UPS Office unit has five different tones or alarms:

1. Four beeps every 30 seconds (On Battery LED will be illuminated)
This alarm indicates that the Battery Power Supplied outlets are now supplying battery power as opposed to power from the utility. If the UPS determines that the input utility power is unsafe for your computer equipment, the UPS will switch to battery power.
Note: If the power disturbance is brief, you may only hear one or two beeps.

2. Continuous Beeping (On Battery LED will be illuminated)
This alarm indicates that a Low Battery condition has been reached and that the UPS will soon shutdown. Once the UPS transfers to On Battery operation, it can only stay on battery for a limited amount of time. The UPS will sound this alarm about two minutes before the batteries are totally exhausted. Once exhausted, the UPS will shutdown and turn off its output power to your equipment. If you hear this tone you should immediately shutdown your computer to prevent data loss or corruption.

3. Continuous Beeps for 30 seconds (Back UPS OFFICE 250 and 280 ONLY)
This alarm indicates the unit has detected an Overload condition after it has performed a self-test during start-up.

4. Continuous Two-Tone Beep
This alarm indicates a severe Overload was detected while the unit was on-battery operation. This tone will continue to sound until the unit shuts down.

5. Continuous Tone (On Battery LED will be flashing)
This alarm indicates that the battery-powered outlets are overloaded.

6. Continuous Tone (On Line and On Battery LEDs flashing) Back UPS OFFICE 350, 400, and 500 ONLY
This alarm indicates that an internal UPS fault has occurred.

Unwaranted UT3K UPS check battery warning


Hi!
1) By the way, batteries are really new (or "China new")? ;)
If they really new then maybe not start-formed. In this case after little time they will get steady (end of problem). If they are "China new" - it worse, their real capacity usually less then 75% from declared.
2) Try to check batteries connectors, wires and their eyelets. If there is weak contact - charging will be wrong (low current)...
3) Check small orange (voltage sence) connector...
4) Look, what happened with P-62, P-63, P-74 ang P-75 settings? maybe there something is wrong...

Maybe, it will be helpfull?
P.S. Please, excuse my weak english.

Beeping and clicks off


When it beeps, that is the internal alarm indicating that incoming AC is not there. It probably clicks off due to the batterys not being charged.
