Voltage

This was originally posted on APC forums on 1/19/2008


Hi ! I am from Latvia . Output voltage in my country is 220W. By default output voltage for SUA1500I is set to 230VAC and is operating now on 230VAC. Should i set in PowerChute voltage to 220VAC or i am just misunderstanding something ?:) Thanks.

Ves,

I would suggest going with the 220VAC output. There's no way that you can have 220W at the wall, so I hope that was a typo and you meant Volts AC. The reason the output set is different is that some international countries have a nominal input voltage of 220, and some have 230. Since there is only one type of international SUA1500I that you have, it will accomodate both.

Ves,

You may want to look at this knowledge base:
http://nam-en.apc.com/cgi-bin/nam_en.cfg/php/enduser/std_adp.php?p_faqid=715&p_created=1010390400&p_...

That unit is a 230v unit, however, it won't actually intervene to change the output voltage unless it drops down to 208v (on high sensitivity, by default). While the unit is running online (no AVR functions boost or trim) the voltage you see on the input is what you will see on the output.

This shouldn't be an issue for any modern computer power supply, as they can accept a wide input voltage range.

Thanks for your answer Cap1 , but that was not what i asked about.

What i want to know is if i should set my UPS nominal output voltage to 220 or 230VAC if voltage from wall is 220 watts !
see pic - http://foto.inbox.lv/anarchy91/26-01-2008/Output-voltage.jpg
As u can understand i am not into all this watts vac thing so im confused :))
