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.

I say yes he manual shows ,setting sensitivity here.
the sound like charger fail. Inside.
inverter works, did you let it charge overnight first.
and disable the beeper if annoying.

I guess you lost the AC power cord?
just buy it like this DOA or?
i see page 2
showing how to connect it.
but the cable is not the same on all countries
things that matter are would wide and your secret not told
is power voltage there
and what connectors or connection type needed, direct wired
or plug-in and what plugs you use in your country.
manual words pg1
Configurable for 220 : 230 or 240 nominal output voltage?????
Output Frequency (sync to mains)50/60 Hz +/- 3 Hz user adjustable +/- 0.1??????
Nominal Input Voltage230V?????
XLI (the I means international version as in not for USA)
is that you 12,000- miles from USA< not told
no clues at all locations not even a country.
the manual said this day 1 new
so you did lose the the cable.
3000 VA XLI models: two output power cords,
two input power cords
Wiring must be performed by a qualified electrician.
are you, ? the first page shows connecting 1 of 2 cables supplied
the other and is done by the electrician.
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.
Fault Light On
top brand UPS like this and for sure commercial grade
my UPS has 2 ways to see logs.
one is with the APP called, (free) Powerchute at Apc.com
or i use my serial console port
i login there using PUTTY at 9600,N,8,1,No flow ctrl
and type status. or type help first
this is DOS like CLI , effect with PUTTY
I type eventlog (at CLI)_
and see all logs, Esc = end, space = next page.
there is 3rd way using APC cloud but I do not have that.(overkill for home)
I have 2 connections to my UPS ,ethernet and serial console cables.
2 ways in, and is covered in the manual.
Bypass relay fault problem
bad relay ( called welded or stuck) or bad other ways,
or logic the drives said relay bad.
bypass the bypass error, LOL
no such, ana-mule.(sic)
My power supply APC UPS-ES 700 won't power on ,at all .
APC.com have many here.
there are fuses inside that blow too.
not just the rear breaker.
fails with NO Loads cables connected at all?
1: batteries shorted or dead. short overload it .
there is a battery fuse, easy or hard to find ,easy on my loved
the true model of you UPS is not front stamps
but the rear label tells the truth.
2: turn it on with not batteries yet, some turn on with error light or on mine LCD hard text errors,. no bats.
3: that is about it besides bad PCB.
ES-700 those pan-cake UPS. sure.
batteries do fail for sure out of the blue. (plates inside can short)
out of the blue. or one cell goes dry and open and dead.
the battery fresh pulled will read 13.0vdc. (good UPS)
not 1, not 0
or 12.8v min. rested 5 hours post charged.
the brain inside (firmware) is not very smart.
it see's any errors it does not like and turns off fast.
blink of eye fast . it can.
shorts , or battery seen shorted.
or blows fuse, deep inside on PCB
up to 400volts inside do not touch that with hands, lethal
are you on 240vac? we are 120v here.
Why won't the new battery allow the xs go on line
let it charge overnight, (new real or new from ebay not new)
never assume it is charged new.
make sure rear AC circuit breaker on it is not tripped
makes sure battery fuse not blown
make sure battery lugs not rusty.
learn how to bench charge any AGM battery like this at 3amps max,
? (AND ATV CHARGERS IS WOW HERE)
2004 UPS, many were recalled for not having fuse. on the battery feed. and cause smoke. why use 15-04 -11 year old UPS>?
MOST THAT OLD HAVE BIG PROBLEMS.
OWNERS MANUAL FOR BR1500LCD
apc.com (step 1 tell them your country first, seems you did not.)
most easy question on earth . and answered.
in usa most APC were banned in jan 2022, a horror here,
most discontinued are still supported with manual and software.
not deleted. for even 10 or more years.(found it)
i can not decode your model (i guess BR is the code)
on the rear or side off UPS is a white sticker or service tag
for sure and you did that I see.
and on such tag is the real model number even encoded for country .
and your unstated countries voltage line input.

OKAY CALL YOU , "me"
POST A PROBLEM
we are not apc.com
not by a mile.
nor do we call folks, and no house calls.
we type words in this text box.
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.
Model 420 Pro. Why is output only 84 VAC?
no real model told , off rear sticker, (tell sticker model first)
no country told
no line voltage told in your country
Did you buy the ups from wrong country(oops) and it has
higher input voltage spec and yours is lower input? (real)
nobody can guess what's up there.
history and all that and location,
voltages are not the same word wide at all
nor frequency 50/60Hz
did you buy a used UPS.
if yes from where ebay, and from wrong country
or it ran for years and fails now.
or outputs overloaded on it.
