Functions A. Provides 6 sets of programmable contacts at pin 1 thu pin 18 for intersection flash control, Remote Alarms, Pagers or other user interface.
1. “Low Batt”: batteries have reached approximately 40% capacity remaining
2. “On Batt”: unit is in inverter mode
3. “Timer”: unit has been in inverter mode for 2 hours (programmable)
4. “Alarm”: any of the following conditions occur:
a. Line Frequency error
b. Low Output voltage
c. No Temperature Probe
d. Overload
e. No battery connected
f. High temperature
g. Low temperature
5. “Fault”: any of the following conditions occur:
a. Short circuit
b. Batt low voltage
c. Batt high voltage
d. High temperature
e. Overload
B. Provides 48 VDC signal to PTS on pins 21 & 22
C. Triggers self-test by momentarily shorting pin 19 & 20 with less than 100 ohm
Contact Type Form C. Dry contacts rated 1 Amp at 240 V
Wiring Uses 14-26 AWG


Brownout Protection Unit boosts output voltage (or transfers to battery) during brownout or low input line conditions and returns to normal when input power stabilizes over user-selected time period.
Setpoints for Transfer / Retransfer, To / From Battery / Boost are users programmable.
Generator Compatibility Generator mode allows wider variation in input voltage and frequency for use with an AC generator
Battery Charger 10 A PFC switch-mode, two-stage charger, temperature compensated (-2.5 to -5 mV/°C/cell), auto shuttoff about 50°C
Inverter Mode Capable of running continuously in inverter mode
Inverter Mode Current Limit Continuous electronic current limit is provided
Remote Monitoring - Input and out put voltages
- Input line frequency
- Output power
- Battery voltage
- Battery temperature
