First, check to see that the phone cord is securely connected to the UPS and the computer. Next, check to see if you can get a dial tone when you bypass the unit. If you are able to get a dial tone when bypassing the unit, please contact technical support. If you are unable to get a dial tone when bypassing the communication protection ports, please contact your phone company.
CyberPower UPS systems will not work with other UPS manufacturers’ software, but many models do support OS supplied management (e.g. Vista, XP, OS X).
A long, solid tone indicates that you have overloaded your unit. First, move any low priority electronics (speakers, printers, scanners, etc.) to the Surge-Only outlets and see if that resolves the issue. If you are still overloading the unit, you will either need to remove some of the electronics from the Battery/Surge outlets, or purchase a new unit with a VA/Watt rating suitable for your current demands.
PowerPanel software is not required for the UPS to provide surge suppression and battery backup. However, installing the PowerPanel software provides additional features and control for the UPS, along with the ability to automatically shut down your computer in event of a power outage.
To run a self-test, open the Power Panel software and then click “Initiate Self Test”. Another way to perform a self-test is by turning off the circuit breaker for the circuit the UPS is plugged into or unplugging the unit from the wall.
The USB port can be used with Windows, 2000, XP, Server 2003, Vista, 7, and Server 2008.
The LCD will only light up when the Display button is pressed. This extends the life of the LCD screen and is part of the energy-saving features of CyberPower UPS systems.
This is normal operation of the UPS. All CyberPower units perform a self-test routine when they are turned on.
CyberPower Smart App Online Series UPS systems include a Generator Mode setting specifically designed to work with generators. With varying loads, the frequency output from generators can be erratic. This erratic output can make it difficult for a UPS without a Generator Mode setting to recognize the input power, causing the UPS to function on battery power only. With Generator Mode, the UPS can automatically adjust to frequency fluctuations and maintain a full charge of the batteries.
The serial number is located on a white label adhered to the unit. The serial number is shown directly underneath the barcode.
The internal cooling fan will only run when it is required. CyberPower UPS systems utilize an internal thermometer which activates the fan when the temperature exceeds a certain threshold. When the UPS is running idle (not using battery power), it is completely normal for the fan to not be running. The exception is with Online units, models that begin with “OL”. Their cooling fans will run ALL the time.
Many CyberPower UPS units have two sets of outlets. One set is labeled “Battery/Surge” and one set is labeled “Surge”. The outlets labeled “Battery/Surge” are the outlets that will receive battery power during a power failure. You should plug your computer and monitor into these outlets and any externally powered critical data storage device.
