Back-UPS RS 900 (BR900)

This was originally posted on APC forums on 9/19/2007


I have changed my mind and bought BR900. I need help in setting up this unit. The Manual is bit confusing for me related to Steps 1, 5, 6 & 7.

Step 1 : What am I suppose to do here? Do I have to lift the tab and remove the batteries ( are they two?) and put them back by connecting the connectors or what? ( are they plus and minus signs?) and close the tab and connect the unit with power. Don't do anything for 8 hours until the battries are fully charged.

Steps 5, 6 & 7. If someone have time then please explain me how to go about these steps.

My current set up: I am on Rogers Internet Service.

Internet cable (from Wall) to Rogers modem, from Modem to Router (D-Link Blue cable) from Router to CPU. Currently, I am using APS BE350c which is now being replaced with this new unit BR900.

If you need more info then please let me know.

Thanks

Hello:

I have not yet set up the unit as was busy on some other work. However, I am now ready to installed the BR900 but I found there were two batteries inside and one connector. There were no instructions on batteries nor in the so called users manual describing in words how to installed the battiries.

I am now back to you. Please tell me what do I do with the two batteries? Do I separate them? Do you think one battery is a spare part to be used later on and store it outside the box? Or both these batteries to go inside the battery compartment and connect the connector (hook up the connector) which will charge both the batteries?

Do I have to charge the battery first before I connect other parts? I am sorry to bother you but this is the first time (in my life) I am getting involved with such a useless users manual.

Hello,

For Step 1: you will need to open the plastic cover on the UPS and remove the internal battery. There will be two batteries hooked together, but only one connection to the UPS. The connection should only fit one way. We recommend charging that battery for a solid amount of time before putting the UPS into operation.

Step 5: This is for connecting your DSL, modem, phone, fax connection through the UPS. The jack marked Wall Outlet will have the cable coming direct from the wall plugged in. The jack marked Modem, Phone, Fax will have a second cable connected to your Rogers Modem.

Step 6: This is for the data cable that comes with the UPS. It has an RJ45 to USB connection and is used to establish communication from the UPS to the computer. This will allow the PowerChute software to communicate with the UPS and provide graceful shutdown support.

Step 7: This is if you are using an Ethernet connection for your internet. It would be the same type of configuration for Step 5, but used for more powerful Ethernet. If you are using DSL internet, ignore Step 7.

Hope this helps. Thanks.

Hi,

How can I get a "User's Manual" (if available) a print copy giving information in every details as the one sheet of white paper included in the box is good for nothing for somebody like me.

Thank you

Hi,

I have the same Manual but...........

OK, let me start by asksing you few questions:

I have not yet installed BR900 - not yet. I don't want to rush and get into any trouble.

(1) The unit BR900 has half alround yellow ribbon (2.5" wide approx - like a sealing). With several different languages except two words in English "STOP HALT". Arrows pointing down with marker letters 1, 2, & 3. What do I understand here?

(a) Do I not break the seal and charge the battery without opening the tab? or Do I have to follow 123 when replacing the battery? or Do I break the seal and do what?

(2) However, I will appreciate your help if you please tell me how to go about my set up if I have the following hardware/items:

(a) Rogers modem for Cable Internet (b) Dell CPU (c) Dell Monitor (d) External Dell speakers and harman/kardon sub woofer (e) Router - DLink (f) HP PhotoSmart Printer (g) External Maxtor Hard Drive (h) Telephone - no fax machine at the moment (I) HP Photo Scanner 1000.

There are three types of cables came with the box. (1) Black with marker "FC 1 940-0127E (2) One more thin round type and (3) Grey type. How and where do I use them? Surprisingly, the box of BR 900 do not list the contents inside the box. Otherwise, I would not have ask this question.

Many thanks in advance and more questions (I hope not) to follow after going through your response.

Hello,

You have to break the seal to get to the internal battery. The internal battery ships disconnected. You need to break that seal and connect the battery. This should be clearly written on the seal and user manual.

As your setup, DO NOT plug the scanner and printer into the Battery Backup and Surge Protection outlets, plug them into the Surge Only outlets. Other than that, you can plug the other items into the Battery Backup and Surge Protection outlets to provide them with runtime. You may also want to consider plugging the speakers into the Surge Only outlets, because sub-woofers can use a large in-rush current to power up, and could potentially cause a slight overload.

The 940-0127 cable has an RJ45 to USB connection. This is the data cable. The RJ45 goes into the UPS at the Data Port. The USB will connect to a USB port on your computer. This allows the UPS to talk to the computer, and will provide support via PowerChute Personal Edition. The software allows automatic graceful shutdowns of your CPU during a power outage. As for the other two cables, one should be an RJ11 to RJ11, or phone connection cable. I am not sure what the other cable would be, what connections are on each end?

Thanks.
