SOURCE: Smart UPS 1500 - battery level green lights blink on and off

You need to run recalibration on the unit.  The supplied PowerChute software & cable will allow you to do this if you hook the UPS up to a PC (I know it works with the serial cable, not sure about USB).  If you only have a MAC then I cannot offer a solution other than to buy the standalone PowerView device from APC.  It will cost a bit more than a battery, but may save you from buying needless batteries in the future.  I finally broke down an bought one, but note that I was still having the problem after the 1st recalibration.  By trial and error (and maybe a vague memory) I put my MAC in sleep mode, that dropped the load to stop the lights from flashing.  Then I recalibrated with a 22% load and now it finally seems better (lights no longer flashing).  This was with a Smart-UPS 1000.
Let me know if that helps.

SOURCE: APC UPS 1500 w/full load forces immediate reboot at pwr failure

Hello,

With a 980watt load the run time is only 7 minutes on a brand new battery. If you have the system on full load your run time will be much less and it has likely damaged the battery. here is the APC web site page for your model. If you are running that much equipment I think you need either a bigger UPS or another 1500 and spread the load out.

it seems that the inverter circuit of your UPS is dying. the solution here is you have to open up the UPS and check the inverter circuit. to make easier, check the power mosfet if its leaking.

APC RS 1500 82v output


Many UPS Systems have a squared wave when working on batteries. Cheap multimeters do not give the correct measure on squared waves. Connect a 100 watts resistive lamp to the output of the UPS, if the light is almost the same when UPS is working on batteries, everythinf is fine.

Having UPS Model No. BR 1500 in time of opening UPS shows over lode without giving any lode. Battery is new . can you tell me the solution.


Try to reduce your load. in a overload condition the UPS can not tell you what the load is if it has more then the 1500VA your UPS can not put out more then 1000 watts. Battery has nothing to do with the load.

You need to replace the battery. Go to APC site and order the battery for your model. http://www.apc.com/resource/include/techspec_index.cfm?base_sku=br500i go to about the middle of the page, there are two models for replacement batteries. If you're not sure which one, call APCs customer support. 800-555-2725 I don't know what the shelf life is for your model but the battery usually last 3 yrs or so. Your battery is probably dead now.

UPS issues with bad power


First, most of the UPS sensitivity can be adjusted. Setting a higher sensitivity will make the UPS compensable much faster if the current goes to high to too low thus always providing a good power quality to the equipments. For example, on a BackUPS RS the low level can be configured from 94V to 104V and the high level from 126V to 136V. An entry-level UPS such as the APC BackUPS ES will switch to battery mode as soon as the power goes out of the sensitivity range. On the other hand, a high-end UPS for workstation like the APC BackUPS RS has a feature called Automatic Voltage Regulation (AVR) that compensate at some extent without requiring the battery; this makes the battery last longer before needing to be replaced.

Second, most of the UPS have "Battery Protected" and "Surge only" outlets. Make sure that the computers are connected to the "Battery Protected". The "Surge only" outlets will only protect from parasites or surges like a thunder storm. They should be used for less important stuff like a desk lamp or devices with high demand peek such as a laser printer.

Third, the use of a power bar connected to the "Battery Protected" side should not have any impact as long as it is not overloading the UPS. Personnaly, I have a power bar connected to both my UPS.
