UPStation GXT2 UPS Guide Specifications 6000VA Rack-Tower, Dual Inverter Uninterruptible Power Supply System 1.

0 GENERAL 1.1 SUMMARY This specification defines the electrical and mechanical characteristics and requirements for a continuousduty single-phase, solid-state, uninterruptible power system. The uninterruptible power system, hereafter referred to as the UPS, will provide high-quality AC power for sensitive electronic equipment loads. UPS is not designed to support large inductive or half-wave rectified loads, for example: motors, compressors, vacuum pumps, electric drills, laser printers, hair dryers. 1.2 STANDARDS The UPS is designed in accordance with the applicable sections of the current revision of the following documents. Where a conflict arises between these documents and statements made herein, the statements in this specification shall govern. 208Volt Nominal Units UL Standard 1778 c-UL NEMA Type 1 Enclosure FCC Part 15, Class A EN61000-4-2, Level 4, criteria A EN61000-4-3, Level 3, criteria A EN61000-4-4, Level 4, criteria A EN61000-4-6 ANSI C62.41, Category A & B EN61000-4-5, Level 3, criteria A EIA 310 19” Rack mounting ISTA Procedure 1A or 1B (depending on weight) 1.3. SYSTEM DESCRIPTION 1.3.1 Modes of Operation The UPS is designed to operate as a true on-line double conversion system in the following modes:

A. Normal - During normal operation, utility power provides energy to the UPS. The filters,
the power factor correction circuit and the inverter process this power to provide computergrade power to connected loads. The UPS maintains the batteries in a fully charged state.

B. Battery - The UPS will enter Battery mode if there is an extreme power surge, extreme
power drop, or utility failure. The battery system supplies power through the DC-to-DC converter to the inverter to generate computer-grade power for the connected load.

C. Recharge - Once utility power is restored, the UPS resumes normal operation and the
Battery Charger begins recharging the battery.

D. Bypass - Bypass mode provides an alternate path for utility power to the connected load in
the unlikely event of a UPS malfunction, such as overload, overtemperature, or an internal circuit failure.

E. Automatic Restart - Upon restoration of utility / mains AC power, after a utility mains AC
power outage and complete battery discharge, the UPS automatically restarts and resumes supplying power to the critical load and the battery charger automatically recharges the battery.
