Question about Powerware PW 5125 5000 RM (103003611-5591) UPS System

1 Answer

We changed out the batteries on several of our Powerware pw5125 UPS' and the indicator light stays at 25%. Thus far we have changed out six and only one has read 100% charged after the replacement. We were wondering if there is something wrong with the electronics board within the unit making it unable to hold a charge. We bought several batteries (170), and were wondering if we should return them and buy new UPS' instead.

The LEDs are actually indicating the amount of load on the UPS and only indicate battery charge level when running on battery power. You can email singlephaseTS@eaton.com if you'd like to follow up.

Alarm #191 open cell voltage powerware 9130


Alarm error #191 comes from a battery test, where batteries are put under load for 25 seconds. (If the alarm is unexpected, you might have enabled the periodic 30-day battery test.)

#191 is test failure for battery internal resistance. So, need to locate and replace the bad battery, then run the battery test manually. If batteries are good, make sure no battery connector is corroded or loose.

I have a powerware 9120 (6kva) and about 1 week i replaced all 20 batteries after the UPS failed. but its displaying battery disconnected when i try to power it. i cant seem to figure the problem. i tried...


Did your UPS display "Battery disconnected" or did it display "Battery Failure"? If it was "Battery Failure", for some reason the Powerware 9120 will take almost 18 hours after plugging in to power after battery replacement to correct the Battery Failure indication. Charger has to charge up the batteries, followed by an automatic battery test by the UPS. If the indication was "Battery Disconnected", you will need to check the internal fuses to see if they are blown. If the UPS keeps blowing fuses, it will require a board repair.

Need to locate someone to install batteries into our UPS Powerware 2000. Location, Tempe, AZ (Phoenix, AZ)


Try contacting Eaton. They bought Powerware about 6 years ago and the personnel are trained on older Powerware systems. If you have the part number and serial number from the rating label on the UPS, that would be helpful.

Battery Packs for Powerware 9355 UPS


The Batts can be charged externally, then refitted, usually I extend the DC cables so I can work with the batt outside the unit. This is ONLY to be done if you understand the risk and what may happen if you get it wrong.

Batts are always live and can cause fire/explosion/severe burns if shorted!
IF YOU ARE NOT SURE THEN GET SOME EXPERIENCED HELP!

OK so the UPS will not normally recognise a very low batt pack, that is the reason you can not start the test, this test will back of the rectifier so the batt pack takes the load for a short period.

If the batt pack is out of range then this will make the load go off, so the UPS is designed not to allow the test,unless the batt is at the right level.

If you can get the batt pack up close to normal then the unit will recharge it to full.,Wait until it is fully charged before testing.
If this is sucessful the cyle the batt a few times allowing it to reach around low batt warning before recharging. This will assist the batt in recovery. During this process if possible monitor with a test intrument(fluke 123 or 43B will do) the batt pack discharge curve , once the batt pack has dropped to its charge level from float, it should be a smooth decay.
depending on the state of the batts you may be ok, if there are weak ones in the string then you may have to replace all of them depending on the age of the batt pack.

MAKE SURE YOU ARE VERY CAREFUL WITH BATTERIES, THEY ARE VERY DANGEROUS, AND ALWAYS LIVE!

Check you manual for safety procedures, BEFORE working on Batteries.


hope this helps

thanks for using Fixya

yes..and that happens after a period of time. When you get new ones, check the instructions on the initial charge/discharge requirements, and use those methods. tends to help with the battery life extension.
