help on correctly jumpering batteries for rbc59

This was originally posted on APC forums on 7/27/2011


Hi there,

I know it is not recommended, but this is what I've got to deal with.

I am replacing the batteries in an RBC59 for a smartups sc 1500.

The RBC got disassembled... I have the divider plate and some jumper wires...
now they want me to put it back with new batteries that they got.

The batteries are the correct type to replace the 12v 8ah generics in the RBC59.

But how do the jumpers connect? Thanks.

Please see attached photo.

Well, I saved that drawing, and repositioned the batteries like I saw in your picture.

Because of the drawing tool I used, the lines that represent wires stayed connected to their anchor points on the objects that represented the battery terminals... so the connections should still be correct in their new positions.

No guarantees here though... maybe someone more knowledgeable than either of us could comment? Good luck!
