Guidance for Organizing Battery Cables

NOTE: For 3rd party batteries, use only high rate batteries for UPS applications.
NOTE: When the battery bank is placed remotely, the organizing of the cables is important to reduce voltage drop and inductance. The distance between the battery bank and the UPS must not exceed 200 m (656 ft). Contact Schneider Electric for installations with a longer distance.
NOTE: To minimize the risk of electromagnetic radiation, it is highly recommended to follow the below guidance and to use grounded metallic tray supports.
