UPS BackUp-Time 525BT

A couple years ago, I swapped the original (7A2) battery for a car battery and had to be careful, because I measured some 90V or so, between the housing and battery terminals.
It all went good until the day I accidentally misplaced the setting on my multimeter; instead of the voltage measuring setting, I had it on Amp setting. Result: It shorted the circuit, the house fuses went off and now my 525bt only works via battery supply, running only about 5 minutes after switching on the main switch of the unit. The 5 fuses of the unit are all O.K.; nothing looks burned.
I'm a fourty year experienced hobby electronics fan and would need a circuit schematic to find and repair the damage.
In the worst case I thought of powering the unit via two 13V/4Amp transformers in (parallel phase)via a bridge rectifier, a 60oooMF/16V electrolytic capacitor and an automotive relay, switching over to battery PS in case power failure.
The only problem I then would have is: how to get rid of that timed 5 minutes automatic turn off cycle??? It must be in that IC or is there a timing cap responsible for it? What to do? I would greatly appreciate some advice on that.

You are complicating your power problem. It looks like a surgeon that gets a cold, gets involved in his medical knowledge and decides to implant himself a heatr rate monitor. If you have a serious power problem in Chile, your best bet is to buy a UPS with enough capacity to handle the load for extensive periods of time. American Power Protection has a very good configuration tool on its website (www.apc.com).

Mge ups making noise after applying coolant


If I knew the specific UPS model, I might be able to provide some better input. At this point, I would contact Eaton product support. Eaton acquired the MGE single-phase UPS line a couple of years ago and assumed support/service for these products:

disconnect one terminal of the battery then measure charging voltage betwen +ve and -ve it should be 13.8vdc for one 12v battery if charging voltage is not present then battery is ok then connect ammeter to measure the current in Ampere .take care it should be in series if current if no current then battery must ok opern the ups there is a charger transformer measure i/p voltage to transformer if not present then check i/p path if present then check diodes at o/p of charger if faulty replace it also check capacitor and regulator ic if faulty replace it your problem must be solved

UPS power goes off instantly as soon the external supply stops.


In our office, I have had to replace UPS batteries AGAIN two years after I replaced the original batteries in the units. I had purchased the replacement batteries locally, so I don't know if the brand of replacement batteries was not as good as the original batteries or what. But your weak battery light is not flashing ... I would try a replacement battery (if it isn't too expensive) but I know that some of the older batteries are no longer used in the newer UPS units so if the problem wasn't the battery you are stuck with a new battery and nothing to use it for.
