 MONITORING FEATURES

  • The unit includes an RS232 communication option called UPSCOM. This is an RS232 connection to a PC that can monitor the output parameters and any abnormal conditions that have occurred in real time. Standard commercially available software is required. The RS232 Feature is included at no additional charge.

 FRONT PANEL LCD DISPLAY AND LED INDICATORS

  • This will report all Inverter parameters including input and output voltages, currents, frequency, battery voltage, battery current, and many other functions.

 LCD DISPLAY

  • Real time status, data, and historical events are displayed via the LCD display. The UPS parameters, real-time clock, inverter, and buzzer can also be set through this LCD, which is backlit by LEDs for visual clarity.

 STATUS LEDs

LEDs representing all important operational information provide feedback to the user. LED descriptions are as follows:

  • INVERTER ON – Inverter is running normally.
  • INVERTER SS – Inverter static switch is on while the reserve static switch is opened (off).
  • SHORT CIRCUIT – Inverter output is in short circuit state.
  • FUSE / OVERTEMP SD – Inverter has shut down due to either fuse open or over temperature.
  • INVERTER FAIL SHUTDOWN – Inverter has shut down due to low inverter AC output voltage.
  • BYPASS ON SHUTDOWN – Inverter shut down due to closed bypass breaker.Inverter shut down due closed bypass breaker (while inverter running).
  • HIGH DC SHUTDOWN – Inverter shut down due to high DC bus.
  • OVERLOAD SHUTDOWN – Inverter shutdown due to overload of the inverter for a period greater than the inverter can accept. The inverter will start after 7 seconds.
    70% LOAD – load connected to the output is over 70% of the Inverter rating.
    110% LOAD – load connected to the output is over 110% oh the Inverter rating.
    125% LOAD – load connected to the output is over 125% of the Inverter rating.
    150% LOAD – load connected to the output is over 150% of the Inverter rating.
  • RESERVE AC FAIL – reserve AC magnitude is out of range.
  • RESERVE FREQ FAIL – reserve frequency is out of range.
  • BATTERY LOW – DC bus (or battery) is lower than specified range, low battery shutdown will occur soon.
  • BATTERY LOW SHUTDOWN – inverter shutdown due to DC bus (or battery) lower than the acceptable DC voltage of the inverter.
  • HIGH DC – DC voltage over the acceptable DC voltage of the inverter.
  • EMERGENCY STOP – Inverter shut down activated by emergency stop switch.
  • DATA LINE – Blink when data is transmitted to or received from the communication port

 OTHER OPTIONS

  • CASTERS & LEVELERS
    For portability, the 22″ wide Jupiter cabinets may be optionally equipped with the base-mounted caster / leveler set as shown here.
  • DC INPUT BREAKER OPTION
    The optional DC Input breaker disconnect is offered to provide protection for the input.
  • SHOCK MOUNT OPTION
    The cabinet can be shock mounted, using optional rubber on coil type isolators. This will be enable the unit to withstand shock levels as specified in MIL-STD-901
  • RUGGEDIZING OPTION
    This option will add conformal coating and other additional internal structural members to allow the unit to meet many portions of MIL-STD-810.
  • TURN ON SERVICE OPTION
    We offer a turn on service that will ensure the Inverter has been properly installed and the full warranty is in effect (failures caused by incorrect installation are not covered by the warranty.) If this option is selected, the customer will also automatically receive an additional 3 months added to the warranty at no additional charge.
  • SPARE PARTS KIT OPTION
    We offer a spare parts package that includes one of each board, spare fuses, spare semiconductors, and spare fans. These spare part kits are priced lower when ordered with the initial order then if they are ordered later on.

 WARNING LEDs

When abnormal condition occurs, these LEDs will light to warn the user of the cause of the fault condition. Therefore all these LEDs are off under normal condition. These LEDs are:

  • RESERVE FAIL – Reserve AC input is abnormal either due to AC magnitude out of range or frequency out of range.
  • FUSE/TEMP – Either inverter fuse is open or over temperature has occurred.
  • OVERLOAD – Output is overloaded by over 110%, 125% or 150%
  • HIGH DC – This LED will light when DC input approaches high-line limit.
  • BAT LOW – This LED will light when the DC voltage is low.
  • BAT LOW STOP – This LED will light when the DC voltage is lower than specified range.
  • FAULT – The inverter is off due to abnormal conditions such as overload, short circuit, high DC, fuse over temperature, bypass breaker on emergency stop.

Since these LEDs are located behind the transparent window, the user can use them clearly without opening the door.

 AUDIBLE ALARM

The audible alarm will beep under either one of the following conditions:

  • INVERTER IS OVERLOADED
    > 110% beep once every 3 seconds
    > 125% beep once every second
    > 150% beep twice every second
  • INVERTER IS SHORT CIRCUITED – Beeps continuously
  • FUSE OPEN– Beeps continuously
  • HEAT SINK OVER TEMPERATURE – Beeps continuously
  • HIGH DC SHUTDOWN – Beeps continuously
  • BYPASS ON STOP – Beeps continuously
  • EMERGENCY ON STOP – Beeps continuously
    The buzzer will also beep once every time the inverter is switched on or off to acknowledge to the user that his key entry is valid and accepted.temperature, bypass breaker on emergency stop.

Since these LEDs are located behind the transparent window, the user can use them clearly without opening the door.

 COMMUNICATIONS OPTIONS

We offer options for communications with this Inverter series. Some popular options available at additional cost include the following:

  • UPSCAN: This is a hand held remote display and control module with LCD and LED display that can monitor via RS-485 UP to 99 UPS Units at a remote distance of up to 3,000 feet.
  • UPSCALL: This is a modem that will automatically dial out to a specified number when an abnormal situation occurs.
  • NETAGENT: This provides capability to monitor the Inverter over the internet. It includes the appropriate additional SNMP card and microprocessor. The software required is provided by MEGATEC at additional cost.
