Is it ok to place the ES-750 on its side

This question was originally posted by Tom on APC forums on 10/15/2010


I have changed desks only to realize that the ES-750 I have wont fit while its laying flat in its normal orientation. Can I prop it up on its side (outlets facing forward instead of up) without damaging the unit or running the risk of leaks?

Should be fine. I don't know what APC's official recommendation is but I've had lots of customers that had to lay these things sideways and they work fine. As long as there is no undue pressure on the cables like having the UPS lean against the inside of a desk or wall and having the AC cables getting jammed up or something. As long as it doesn't cause physical strain on the outlets is basically the rule to follow.

Also make sure the UPS isn't balanced against something where it could slip and fall over or teetering sideways where it might "hang" by one of the cables if it were to slip and fall over.

None of this will likely affect the battery operation but it's just good practice to ensure the cables are "relaxed".
