Question about Powerware 9120 UPS System

Open Question

Hi, I have a ups powerware 9120, 3kva. It has an EBM(external battery module). This UPS 9120 was recently replaced to a newer model, Powerware 9130, 3kva. The problem is, the connection for the EBM is different from the new UPS. Can you please give me some advice how to modify the connections so I can still use my EBM.

How many years is your ups working? UPS is usually run by a battery, some of them are disposable and needs replacement. If it does not charge anymore it needs replacement of battery.

After you replaced the batteries did you perform a manual battery test?

If not do so.

Powerware ups 6kv indicates Bat disconnected

1st does this have external battery modules or is it only the Internal batteries on this unit? You can disconnect the EBM's and the unit doesn't alarm even removing the internals with EBM;s attached won't cause an alarm. But it you only have internal batteries, open the front cover by pressing in the sides on the bottom left and right and pull it out and up at the same time revealing a black cable with a small anderson connector, make sure it is connected. you can pull the batteries out to check them to be sure they are properly seated. By the way the UPS in the picture only went to 3000va so is the 6Kv a different model?

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.
