Usually the alarm controller shuts off the alarm after a preset time.
Most alarm systems have an internal backup battery.
The UPS only supplies power to the controller panel if it is an external power source.

GE LP33 UPS inverter failed to start


Dear Yared,

Did you try to give the UPS some time to recharge the batteries?
Seems like the batteries have reached their cut-off voltage and are not supplying enough voltage to the inverter.

Normally the dc boos circuit of the UPS will supply voltage to the DC BUS so maybe the problem can be found in the dc boost circuit or BUS if recharging the batteries is not helping.

Let me know.

Best Regards,


Ron

Tone alarm goes off and flashes "overload" and on the back "building wireing fault" is lit up


The "Overload" light and alarm is to tell you that the devices connected to the UPS are drawing more current than the UPS can safely provide with battery backup. You should disconnect a few items, and the alarm and overload light will turn off. The "Building wiring fault" light on the back is to tell you that there's no proper ground wire inside the wall outlet that you're using. These two problems are not related to each other.

"On Battery" Alarm Sounds when Power Available.


if this comes sometimes and goes, this means that the power to ups is sometimes deviating from the specific ups input range, hence the ups is rejecting it. mesure the input voltagesand frequency with a multimeter and check whether they match the specified ones in the ups manual. aslo with some ups there are switches that you use to set the input voltages or number of phases in the ups input. check the manual to see whetther your ups has such.

This is Easy,

MGE software is exclusive to them, they do this so that in the event the UPS needs any work you have to use them for remedial work, the problem is because they hold the monopoly they charge through the roof for parts and labour. you will need a factory trained engineer to turn up with a laptop to switch off the "Maintenance Alarms" I have an engineer that has the Software and availabilty to parts and we are much cheaper than MGE direct.

Belkin UPS F6C800 Problem


Hello,

My name is Vikram Kumar Thumu, from India-Hyderabad. I have seen your message on the issue related to Shutdown of UPS whenever there is a Power Surge. I would like to provide my suggestions on the issue. I hope that this should work for you and will resolve the issue.


I see that you are using


Generally, the issue happens if you are not using the UPS as per Manufacturer specifications or if it is overloaded frequently then UPS  shutdowns


To isolate the issue, I recommend you to check and go through below information.

If you see ON BATTERY a Yellow LED OR Flashing Yellow
LED with Audible Alarm (Beeping) then it means this condition for the On-Battery LED can indicate 1of 2 problems: They are:

1. The UPS is on battery backup and an intermittent audible alarm is on. The UPS will begin shutdown procedure.

2. Battery is low. The UPS will sta rt shut down. The buzzer sounds an audible alarm .


if you see a Solid Red on your UPS , then it means that UPS is either fault or overload.  It happens if there is a issue with UPS. The LED will be lit continuously and the unit will sound an audiable alarm for 10 seconds. Other cause could be with Battery is weak or Bad, the Battery needs to be replaced under this condition.

If you use a Flashing Red LED, then it means that battery is trying to give more power than it should. It happens then UPS is overloaded.

Let me tell you,,,,

Only data sensitive equipment such as a computer, monitor and external drive should be plugged into these outlets. Battery power is automatically

provided in case of a power outage. Power (AC or battery) is not supplied to these outlets when the UPS is switched off. (Do not plug surge protectors or power strips into the battery back up outlets).

 Most Important factor that effects the issue is that,
 

Caution: Never connect a laser printer or scanner to the backup outlets of UPS with other computer equipment. A laser printer or scanner draws significantly more power when in use than when idle. This may overload the UPS.


And caused the UPS to shutdown whenever there is Power Surge

To isolate the issue further, let me tell you the way where you can test the UPS if it is fine or not.

1. Charge the UPS for around 4 hours, and try below steps.

  

To Conduct a Self Test

 

Use the self-test to verify both the operation of the UPS and the condition of the battery. In normal utility power, push the On/Off/Test

button less than 2 seconds and the UPS performs a self-test function. During the self-test, the UPS operates in back-up mode.

Note! During the self-test, the UPS briefly operates on- battery backup power (the on-battery LED comes on). If the UPS passes

the self -test, it returns to on-line operation. If the UPS fails the self-test, it immediately returns to on-line operation and lights the replace battery LED. The loads are not affected. Recharge the battery overnight and perform the self- test again. If the replace battery LED is still on, the battery will need to replaced.

 

This should resolve the issue for you.

 

 If you need any further assistance on the issue, you can mail me at thumuvikram@rediffmail.com . I'll be glad to help you.

 

Bye.
