Final Installation

Use optional seismic kit GVSOPT016 for this procedure.
DANGER
Hazard of electric shock, explosion, or arc flash
Batteries can present a risk of electric shock and high short-circuit current. The following precautions must be observed when working on batteries
  • Remove watches, rings, or other metal objects.
  • Use tools with insulated handles.
  • Wear protective glasses, gloves and boots.
  • Do not lay tools or metal parts on top of batteries.
  • Disconnect the charging source prior to connecting or disconnecting battery terminals.
  • Determine if the battery is inadvertently grounded. If inadvertently grounded, remove source from ground. Contact with any part of a grounded battery can result in electric shock. The likelihood of such shock can be reduced if such grounds are removed during installation and maintenance (applicable to equipment and remote battery supplies not having a grounded supply circuit).
Failure to follow these instructions will result in death or serious injury.
WARNING
risk of equipment damage
Wait until the system is ready to be powered up before installing batteries in the system. The time duration from battery installation until the UPS system is powered up must not exceed 72 hours or 3 days.
Failure to follow these instructions can result in death, serious injury, or equipment damage.
  1. If not done already, lower the front and rear leveling feet on the modular battery cabinet with a wrench until they connect with the floor. Use a bubble-leveler to check that the modular battery cabinet is level.
    NOTICE
    Risk of Equipment damage
    Do not move the cabinet after the leveling feet have been lowered.
    Failure to follow these instructions can result in equipment damage.
  2. Only for seismic anchoring:
    1. Remove the M8 bolts from the front of the modular battery cabinet.
    2. Install the front anchoring bracket on the modular battery cabinet with the provided M8 bolts.
    3. Mount the front anchoring bracket to the floor. Use appropriate hardware for the floor type – the hole diameter in the front anchoring bracket is ø13 mm. Minimum requirement is M12 grade 8.8 hardware.
  3. Reinstall the indicated plates and covers.
  4. Set the battery breaker BB to the open (OFF) position.
  5. Push the battery modules into the slot. Fill the shelves from the bottom and upwards. Always install a complete battery string (four battery modules) on each shelf.
  6. Turn down the battery module handle and fasten the handle to the shelf with the provided screw.
  7. Connect the battery terminals to the front of the battery modules.

  8. Only for seismic anchoring: Remove the narrow plate from the bottom of the lower battery cover and reinstall the lower battery cover.
    NOTE: When reinstalling the lower battery cover, note that the screws in the bottom must be installed in the two center holes now. Use the two M6 screws from the optional seismic kit GVSOPT016.
  9. Reinstall the battery covers.
