Battery Equalization Technology

A chain is only as strong as its weakest link. This proverb holds true for a multi-battery string; the weakest battery reduces the performance and life of the entire battery string. Battery Equalization Technology is an advanced charging process that improves the performance and extends the life of a multi-battery string by charging each battery to a similar voltage.

By charging each battery to a similar voltage, the multi-battery string will charge and discharge at the same level. This improves runtime and extends the time between each battery replacement resulting in lower overall battery costs.

Battery Equalization Technology is a component of a Battery Management System and has been used at the datacenter level for many years. However, this technology has not been available at the individual UPS level until now.


Lithium Ion Batteries and Quality Performance

Lithium-ion provides quick, efficient performance for rechargeable batteries. Common in notebooks, mobile phones, and other devices, rechargeable lithium-ion batteries have a high power density. Lightweight and convenient, these batteries function well upon frequent, shallow discharges before having to be recharged.

Although lithium-ion batteries can be recharged many times, they may eventually require replacement. Spent batteries should always be recycled or disposed separately from household waste.


GreenPower UPS Technology: Bypass Design

GreenPower UPS™ Technology from CyberPower improves operating efficiency, reduce heat generation, and consume less power than conventional UPS models.

Our patented Bypass Design allows current to bypass the transformer and automatic voltage regulation (AVR) when utility power is normal, thus reducing energy consumption and associated costs. Because utility power functions normally most of the time, the bypass design allows for substantial energy savings. This technology also reduces heat generation, an important factor in decreasing operating costs.


Sine Wave Power

In the U.S., utility companies provide power to households and offices by distributing single phase alternating current (AC) power at a frequency of 60 Hz. Electrical power can be graphically depicted as a sine wave whereby the electrical signal alternates from +120 volts to -120 volts at a rate of 60 times per second (60 Hz). To enable more efficient operation of large, heavy equipment, utility companies provide commercial and industrial locations with three phase AC power which consists of three overlapping sine waves offset by 120 degrees.

Although utility companies strive to distribute 100% sine wave power, many factors can introduce electrical noise into the AC power signal in the form of sine wave distortions and as voltage sags, surges, spikes, or other irregularities. Sine wave power is important for the optimal functioning of sensitive desktop computers and related peripheral equipment. Without sine wave power output, microprocessor-based equipment can become inoperative or sustain damage from power signal distortions.


Automatic Voltage Regulation

Automatic Voltage Regulation (AVR) in line interactive UPS systems stabilizes the incoming AC signal to maintain output power at a nominal 120 volts by controlling high and low voltages without resorting to battery power. This significantly increases battery life and lessens the likelihood of data loss, memory freezes, and system crashes.

How AVR Works in a Line Interactive UPS

A line interactive UPS includes an AVR autotransformer a special type of transformer designed to switch between powered coils of wire in response to variances in utility power input, thereby increasing or decreasing the magnetic field and the resulting output voltage to connected equipment.

This type of UPS tolerates undervoltage brownouts and overvoltage surges without consuming backup battery power by automatically selecting different power taps on the AVR autotransformer. During normal operation, incoming AC power bypasses the autotransformer (where voltage highs and lows are controlled) while also charging the battery. When the incoming voltage falls below the AVR range, the UPS switches to battery backup, and the DC-AC inverter circuitry is engaged. Power will continue to be supplied by the battery-inverter circuit until incoming voltage returns to the range manageable by the AVR.


Efficient Remote Management

The Smart App Sinewave and Online Series offers full-featured network UPS management capabilities with the PowerPanel® Business Edition software and an optional SNMP network management card. These remote management tools enable centralized power management, monitoring, control, and configuration. They also provide for safe shutdown of connected servers, workstations, and other devices via a standard Web browser or network management system (NMS).

Safe Shutdown

The PowerPanel® Business Edition software, included with every Smart App Sinewave and Online UPS, enables an administrator to remotely manage each aspect of the UPS and facilitate the orderly automatic shutdown of connected equipment in the event of an extended power outage. This software also provides comprehensive network power management for corporate servers and critical workstations supported by the UPS, such as application/operating system shutdown, event logging, reporting, alerts and notifications.

Programmable Outlet Control

Smart App Sinewave and Online UPS systems allow programming of critical outlets and non-critical outlets, giving administrators the ability to prioritize outlets and increase battery backup runtimes for the most critical equipment during extended power outages. Programmable outlet control also gives an administrator the option to delay-start non-critical outlets, permitting the internal batteries to fully recharge more quickly. This feature is vital to data centers where seamless, uninterrupted equipment bootup is a necessity.


Active Power Factor Correction Supplies for IT Equipment

During the past thirty years, people have become more aware of the amount of energy used by IT equipment and devices. For many years, desktop computers and workstations inefficiently consumed power, partly due to the design of the power supplies which transformed AC power (from the wall outlet) to DC power (used by computers). This voltage transformation was relatively inefficient as reflected in low power factor ratings.

In 1992, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), in collaboration with advocates in the IT industry, developed the ENERGY STAR® program to prompt the development of energy-efficient products. Today this program is recognized as an international standard.

To comply with ENERGY STAR standards, manufacturers of desktop and workstation computers incorporate Active Power Factor Correction (Active PFC) as part of the engineering designs, enabling energy efficiencies of 95% or higher. Computers with Active PFC power supplies require sine wave AC power, as supplied by utility companies, for trouble-free operation. For this reason, sine wave UPS systems have become the best choice for backup power.

Simulated or stepped sine wave power, provided by entry-level UPS systems, may be problematic or incompatible with Active PFC devices. Sine wave power varies continuously from positive to negative. Simulated sine wave power mimics a sine wave by using a squared-off approximation. Due to this approximation, simulated sine wave power momentarily creates a zero power gap. When power is interrupted, a computer with an Active PFC power supply may not recognize incoming simulated sine wave power due to the zero output present in the approximated wave. This could cause the system to unexpectedly shut down or sustain system component stress.

Do I have to have the UPS turned on in order for it to charge?

The UPS will charge the battery whether the unit is turned on or turned off.

What types of equipment are NOT allowed to be plugged into the UPS?

Any device which exceeds the unit’s VA/Watt rating should not be plugged into the outlets. High drain devices, medical equipment, and aquatic equipment also void the unit’s warranty. Below is a list of other devices that also void the warranty.

  • Laser printers
  • Space heaters
  • Copiers
  • Paper shredders
  • Vacuums
  • Curling irons

Do I need to install PowerPanel software for my UPS to work properly?

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.

Where is the serial number located on the UPS?

Your CyberPower product serial number (S/N) is located on a small white rectangle label located on the bottom or back panel of your UPS system. The serial number will appear in various places depending on the product you are referencing.

SX650U Serial Number

The label will have a barcode with a 12-character code right below it–this is your serial number. It may include your product’s model number and the words Made in China.

Serial Close Up


What is the difference between the Battery/Surge outlets and the Surge outlets?

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.

Items such as printers, speakers, scanners, and faxes should be plugged into the outlets labeled “Surge.” These outlets are intended for low priority electronics that are not essential to the PC’s main operation.

Are the rackmount ears strong enough to hold up my rackmounted UPS? Does it also need to have rear supports?

The front-mount rackmount ears are specifically designed and tested to hold up their own weight in both a two-post and four-post rack enclosure. Rear supports are not needed, but users can install them if they wish.

How do I dispose of my UPS?

CyberPower Systems encourages environmentally sound methods for disposal and recycling of its UPS products. Please dispose of and/or recycle your UPS and batteries in accordance to the local regulations of your state.
