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. Select your battery solution type:
    1. Select Standard if you have a standard Galaxy VS battery solution and choose the commercial reference for your specific battery configuration from the drop-down list.
    2. Select Modular if you have a modular Galaxy VS battery solution.
    3. Select 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. Only the first three settings are available for modular battery solutions.
    Number of battery cabinets connected to the battery breaker/Number of modular battery cabinets Set the number of battery cabinets connected to each battery breaker/Set the number of modular battery cabinets connected to the UPS.
    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.
    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 Select to enable charger autoboost mode. This function will automatically transfer the charger to boost charger mode after the system has been in battery operation.
    Cyclic charge mode Select to enable 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.

    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.
  4. Only for custom battery solution: Tap Specific 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.
    Battery type Select the battery type.
    Battery midpoint connected Select if a battery midpoint is connected.
    Disable temperature monitoring Select to disable battery temperature monitoring.
    Battery capacity per block (Ah) Set the battery capacity per battery block in ampere hours for the battery bank connected to each battery breaker.
    Number of parallel battery strings Set the number of battery strings connected in parallel for the battery bank connected to each battery breaker.
    Number of battery blocks per string Set the number of battery blocks per battery string.
    Number of battery cells per block Set the number of battery cells in a battery block.
    DC voltage per battery cell (V) Set the charging voltage per battery cell for Float charging.

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

    Set the charging voltage per battery cell for Boost charging.

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

    Set the charging voltage per battery cell for Equalization charging.

    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) Set the duration in seconds of the charge for Boost charging and Equalization charging.
    DC shutdown voltage per battery cell (V) Set the voltage level per battery cell for when the battery must be shut down.
    Nominal temperature (°C)/Nominal temperature (°F) Set the nominal temperature in Celsius or Fahrenheit.
    Charge current rate Set the charge current rate.
    Allow boost charge Select to allow boost charge of the batteries.

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

    Allow battery deep discharge Select to allow deep discharge of the batteries when the UPS is in battery operation. This function allows to discharge the batteries to an even lower voltage level than the normally recommended value. Note that this may damage the batteries.
    Enable battery automatic disconnect Select to enable automatic disconnection of the batteries. When the UPS system is left with output off and no ability to charge the batteries, 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.
