Uninterruptible Power Supply SURT 8000/10000 VA 200-240 VAC UPS Installation & Operation Manual

By | June 17, 2018

Introduction: The APC® by Schneider Electric Smart-UPS® RT is a high-performance, uninterruptible power supply (UPS) that provides protection for electronic equipment from utility power blackouts, brownouts, sags and surges. The UPS filters small utility line fluctuations and isolates electronic equipment from large disturbances by internally disconnecting from utility line power. The UPS provides continuous power from the internal battery until utility power returns to safe levels or the battery is fully discharged.

Installation: Read the safety information sheet before installation.

Unpacking:  Inspect the UPS upon receipt. Notify the carrier and dealer if there is damage. The packaging is recyclable; save it for reuse or dispose of it properly. Check the package contents:
