Connecting to the UPS

------ WARNING! ------

When servicing or repairing electric power generation equipment:

Make sure the unit is off-line (disconnected from utility and/or other generators power service), and either locked out or tagged DO NOT OPERATE. Remove all fuses.



Wear a well grounded wrist strap and perform work in a static free environment. Electrostatic discharge can damage the monitor and components.

Note: The system must be at a dead stop. There should be no power that is available.

The system is designed for flush mounting or surface mounting in a panel box. The system uses 18 AWG or larger wire. The wire will consist of 3 conductors. The wire consists of a data conductor, a ground conductor, and a power conductor. There are 14 screw connections on the back of the status panel that are labelled. Refer to Table 2.
