There are four status indicators (lights) on the front
panel of the Back-UPS (On Line, On Battery, Overload,
and Replace Battery).
On Line (green) - is lit whenever utility power is
powering the Battery Backup outlets.
On Battery (yellow) - is lit whenever the battery of
the Back-UPS is powering equipment connected to the
Battery Backup Outlets.
Four Beeps Every 30 Seconds - this alarm is
sounded whenever the Back-UPS is running On
Battery. Consider saving work in progress.
Overload (red) - is lit whenever power demand has
exceeded the capacity of the Back-UPS.
Continuous Tone - this alarm is sounded
whenever the Battery Backup outlets are
Circuit Breaker - the circuit breaker button
located on the rear panel of the Back-UPS will
stick out if an overload condition forces the Back-
UPS to disconnect itself from utility power. If the
button sticks out, disconnect non-essential
equipment. Reset the circuit breaker by pushing
the button inward.
Replace Battery (red) - is lit whenever the battery is
near the end of its useful life, or if the battery is not con-
nected (see above). A battery that is near the end of its use-
ful life has insufficient run-time and should be replaced.
Chirps for 1 Minute Every 5 Hours - this
alarm is sounded whenever the battery has failed
the automatic diagnostic test.
Note: Allow the Back-UPS to charge for a full eight (8)
hours prior to use.
Press the front panel Power ON/OFF switch and observe
that the following events occur after pressing and
releasing the switch:
• The green On Line indicator flashes.
• The yellow On Battery indicator lights while
a Self-Test is being performed.
• When Self-Test has successfully completed,
only the green On Line indicator will be lit.
• If the internal battery cartridge is not
connected (see Step 1 above), the green On
Line indicator and red Replace Battery
indicators will light. The Back-UPS will also
emit a chirping sound.
Continuous Beeping - this alarm is sounded
whenever a low battery condition is reached.
Battery run-time is very low. Promptly save any
work in progress and exit all open applications.
Shutdown the operating system, computer and

If the rear panel Building Wiring Fault (red)
indicator is lit, a potential shock hazard exists
due to one of the following conditions:
• Open or high resistance ground
• Hot or neutral polarity reversed
• Overloaded neutral circuit
Improper building wiring should be
corrected by a qualified electrician. Do not
use the Back-UPS until the condition that
caused the fault is corrected.
Note: Improper building wiring will not
prevent the Back-UPS from operating, but it
will limit its protection capability.
