Question about APC Back-UPS XS900 (BX900) UPS System

1 Answer

Hello, I have a APC Backup UPS 800 (5 year old) started beeping. Assumed it was a battery problem and ordered a new APC RBC32 battery. When the battery arrived, installed it to the unit only to see the constant beeping + Red overload led ON. When pressing the reset button heard a breaker sound and some smell of electrical burning. Here please note that there is no devices plugged into the APC. Please let me know what I can do at this point.

Because of the electrical burning it is likely that the battery was not the cause of the issue in the first place, it is also likely that the unit will not be able to be repaired by you personally. Often these batteries have very long warranties and coverage, so see if APC will take the unit back along with the battery, if the battery was used in a faulty machine it may have been damaged so i would return that too to make sure that the problem doesn't come back in the future.

Why does my APC Conext UPS beep after power is restored?


After about 2 to 3 years the batteries usually have to be replaced. I found with our UPS's we get about 3 years maximum from the batteries. Ordering the originals from APC is rather expensive.

Locate a professional battery distributor in your area. Get the part numbers written on the batteries in your UPS, and including the detailed descriptions. You can then order these from the distributor. APC uses industry standard batteries. We found the Panasonic and Portilac brands to be excellent.

APC manufactures the UPS's. They use various battery manufactures depending on bid costing.

Apc xs800 new batteries


I Bought two RBC32's and had to hook them up to the connector and did it wrong on the first try. Make sure you connect the yellow to the Red terminal on one battery and the Black on the other, then connet the remaining red to red on one and black to black to the other. Once I did that and plugged it back in everything worked fine.

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.

I have an APC XS1300. One year old. Very few


Mines, two or three years old and doing the exact same thing, you ever figure out what happen or how to fix it? I took the battery out and it reads 16 volts. I put a 2 amp load (fan) on it and it pulls fine, so I'm reluctant to buy a new battery pack for it now.

It's an older unit that i just tried. When i plug


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.

Less back up time


I found the following on APC's web-site for the APC Back-UPS, this will hopefully fix the problem:
You can also perform a manual runtime calibration. This could be done if you have changed your equipment load or battery. Stop the PowerChute software from running; disconnect the serial cable between the computer and UPS. Next unplug the UPS from the wall and let it run on battery until it reaches low battery. Once it reaches low battery plug it back into the wall outlet and let it recharge. Recharge time can take up to 4 hours.
