Configure the Battery Solution

DANGER
hazard of electrical shock, explosion, or arc flash
Battery settings must only be entered by qualified personnel knowledgeable of batteries, battery configuration, and the required precautions.
Failure to follow these instructions will result in death or serious injury.
  1. Tap Configuration > Battery.
  2. Your battery solution type will be shown as:
    • Standard if you have a standard battery solution from Schneider Electric; The commercial reference for your specific battery configuration will be shown.
    • Custom if you have a custom battery solution.
  3. Tap General settings and set up the following parameters:
    NOTE: On each page, tap OK to save your settings and tap the arrow symbol to go to the next page.
    Number of battery cabinets connected to the battery breaker Showing number of battery cabinets connected to the battery breaker. Only configurable by Schneider Electric Service.
    Low runtime warning (sec) Set the threshold for remaining runtime in seconds that will activate the low runtime warning.
    Charge capacity (%) Set the maximum charge capacity in percentage of the UPS nominal power rating.
    Temperature monitoring Showing if temperature monitoring is enabled. Only configurable by Schneider Electric Service.
    Temperature sensor # 1/Temperature sensor # 2 Showing presence of temperature sensors. Only configurable by Schneider Electric Service.
    Minimum threshold (°C) Set the minimum acceptable battery temperature in Celsius or Fahrenheit. Temperatures below this threshold will activate an alarm.
    Maximum threshold (°C) Set the maximum acceptable battery temperature in Celsius or Fahrenheit. Temperatures above this threshold will activate an alarm.
    Charger autoboost mode Showing charger autoboost mode. This function will automatically transfer the charger to boost charger mode after the system has been in battery operation. Only configurable by Schneider Electric Service.
    Cyclic charge mode Showing cyclic charge mode.

    During a cyclic charge, the system cycles between periods of float charging and resting. This function will continuously maintain the battery charge status without stressing the batteries by conducting a permanent float charging.

    Only configurable by Schneider Electric Service.
    Test interval every Set how often the UPS should run a battery test.
    Test day of the week Set on which day of the week the battery test should run.
    Test start time (hh:mm) Set which time of day the battery test should run.
    Manual battery self-test mode Set which battery test type should run: By capacity or By voltage/time.
    Time limit (minutes)/Voltage limit (V) If you chose battery test type By voltage/time, set the time limit or set the voltage limit.
  4. Only for custom battery solution: Tap Specific settings to view the following settings:
    NOTE: These settings are only configurable by Schneider Electric Service.
    Battery type Showing the configured battery type.
    Battery midpoint connected Showing if battery midpoint is connected.
    Disable temperature monitoring Showing if temperature monitoring is disabled.
    Allow boost charge Showing if boost charge is allowed.

    Boost charging makes it possible to conduct a fast charging in order to quickly restore a discharged battery.

    Allow battery deep discharge Showing if battery deep discharge is allowed. The deep discharge function allows to discharge the batteries to an even lower voltage level than the normally recommended value when in battery operation. Note that this may damage the batteries.
    Enable battery automatic disconnect Showing if battery automatic disconnect is enabled. When the UPS output is off and no ability to charge the batteries is available, this function will trip the battery breakers to avoid battery deep discharge after a period of:
    • Two weeks.

    • 10 minutes with the battery cell voltage below the low battery shutdown level.

    Capacity per battery block (Ah) Showing the battery capacity per battery block in ampere hours for the battery bank connected to each battery breaker.
    Number of parallel battery strings Showing the number of battery strings connected in parallel for the battery bank connected to each battery breaker.
    Number of battery blocks per string Showing the number of battery blocks per battery string.
    Number of battery cells per block Showing the number of battery cells per battery block.
    DC voltage per battery cell (V) Showing the float voltage.

    Float charging is the basic charging function available on all types of batteries and automatically initiated by the charger.

    Showing the boost voltage.

    Boost charging makes it possible to conduct a fast charging in order to quickly restore a discharged battery.

    Showing the equalization voltage.

    Equalization charging is used when equalizing skewed open cell batteries. This is the charging method available using the highest possible charging voltage level. When equalization charging is conducted, water is evaporated from the open cell batteries which must be replaced when charging is completed.

    Charge duration (sec) Showing the duration in seconds of the charge for Boost charging and Equalization charging.
    DC shutdown voltage per battery cell (V) Showing the voltage level per battery cell for when the battery must be shut down.
    Nominal temperature (°C)/Nominal temperature (°F) Showing the nominal temperature.
    Charge current rate Showing the charge current rate.
