Question about APC Back-UPS RS Battery Backup (apw br1500) UPS System
I got a used Back-UPS RS 800 battery backup unit.
It's an older unit and when i plug it in, it beeps 4 times every minute or so. I can't seem to make it stop beeping. Is this an indication that the battery is no good in it? What else could make it beep like this?
Try installing the software that is included with the unit. If you didn't get the software, I believe you can download it for free from APC's website. The software will typically give you the status of the batteries and let you know if you need to replace them. If you can't get the software, take the batteries out (keep note of the wiring configuration) and test each battery using a DC voltmeter. The batteries should read around 13.5 volts DC. If they are around or below 11.5v DC, it's time for new batteries. This model, if its the black 110v version, requires the RBC32 which can be found at: http://www.batteryinternational.com/apc-rbc32--f2.html
Good luck and I hope I could help.
