We have provided a large number of the Eaton 9PX single-phase rack/tower-mount UPS since it’s introduction and figured it was time to post a short quick-start video on getting this little unit running. It’s fairly straight forward but it’s very important that you perform the initial startup in the correct order. This particular video is for the 700VA to 3000VA series of 9PX that is provided for the US Market with 120V in/out.
To reduce costly downtime for scheduled maintenance and to speed up replacement of a UPS System down-the-road, a remote-mount maintenance bypass panel can be a great choice. This is because having a completely separate bypass cabinet will let the end-user
or service provider completely and safely route utility / generator power around and away from the UPS cabinet in a make-before-break fashion = no loss of load.
To understand how the bypass works from a one-line perspective, here’s a quick sketch
that was put together during the preliminary design stage.
