Smart 2200 XL Maximum Battery Voltage Setting?

This was originally posted on APC forums on 9/18/2013


Does anyone know how high above the nominal 48 VDC battery Voltage the rack mountable Smart 2200 XL can be set and still operate?


My goal would be to operate it at 60 VDC instead of 48 VDC.


Forget charging, will it invert at 60 Volts battery input without hardware or software modification?


Is the goal achievable?

Can I ask why you'd want to modify this? I am not sure why you'd want to charge the batteries to a higher voltage in the UPS and what benefit that would provide. The UPS has a 48VDC battery system but the float voltage is about ~55.4vDC. None of this is modifiable by the user and above a certain voltage, you're going to get alarms about the battery voltage exceeding the nominal rating. With this float voltage, the UPS outputs the correct voltage via it's inverter.. (120V if you're in the US).
