UPS BE500R-PH microcontroller pic16f716

No, the PIC16F716 microcontroller does not need to be programmed before using it in a UPS. However, it is recommended that you program the microcontroller to optimize its performance for your specific UPS. There is an available schematic diagram for the APC UPS BE500R-PH. This diagram can be found in the "APC UPS BE500R-PH User Manual". Check it here: Back-UPS ES BE500R User guide ' Schneider Electric (apc.com) The most efficient way to use a UPS for a home computer is to connect the UPS to the computer's power supply unit (PSU). This will ensure that the UPS provides power to the computer in the event of a power outage.

EI is 230vac version, and will be wrong used in 240vac countries and worse. yellow led only blink is low line AC as the manual tells my guess you bought the wrong UPS?> v2 docs but not told version page 2. https://download.schneider-electric.com/files?p_Doc_Ref=SPD_AHUG_990-9237_EN&p_enDocType=Quick+start+guide&p_File_Name=BU+UM+990-9237B+MN01+EN.pdf

Lighting the LED internal fault

apc offer schematics or BOM'sthere secret service manuals covers card (PCB) changes and jack names . if not too old their official service centers can fix it;.even out of warranty if it has recalls as many do. (smoker it.)why be here at all and not talking to APC.com DIRECT? WHY be here.it is their design and they made it in a factory and they do support it why not call them.? first for even ideas...step 1 is remove batteries and test them on a bench, google how to load test UPS batteries,I can .now what they say on their real forum APC.com"first off they do NOT want you inside (aside from safe battery swaps)that is simple dead owners never buy new UPS or upgrade ever,"case in point.240vac is really 340volts peak and is fully lethal to humans, not Doctor Teflon man (lol)step one is read your error logs files, using powerchute app free from them.top fail are batteries bar none we bench test them load tested ask or google it.step2 is log files to read. never skip this step.yours is the older 5kw modela tower?and newer ones are better.I guess you are not in the USA, (suffix "I" code )we have EPA/DOE banning most 10 year old model here, so that is huge problem state side.230vac line in?https://www.apc.com/shop/my/en/products/APC-Easy-UPS-On-Line-SRV-6000VA-230V-/P-SRV6KI

Apc symmetra px stuck on self test

Place UPS into internal Bypass (Static Bypass) via the display. Then place unit back to Normal from Internal Bypass(Static Bypass). See if that helps. Or shut the unit down completely by placing UPS into Static Bypass first and then place UPS into external bypass mode, switch is located on the bottom front of the UPS. Please follow the UPS Manual to help you understand the procedures. Also recommend doing this after hours, not during business hours.

DISPLAY SCREEN SHOW NO ERROR. JUST SHOWS ####

the batteries are no good if, after charging them for 24 hours. 3 years of not plugged in wreaks lead/acid batteries just like your car done same way. 1step 1 is config, RTM read the many for connections to 400vac 3 phase do that. then apply power to it (breakers) and let it charger over night or 24 hrs. and luck can happen but those batteries are now toast.
