Battery Installation of APC Power Conditioners with Battery Back-Up

Issue:
How to install and connect the battery in a APC Power Conditioner with Battery Back-Up at first time start-up or following routine battery replacement.

Product Line:
APC AV Power Conditioners with Battery Back-UP
S20BLK
S15BLK
S10BLK
J15BLK
J10BLK

Environment:
All models and serial number ranges.

Cause:
Battery must be installed and connected for proper device protection during power outages and interruptions. This is most common upon initial set-up or following a routine replacement of an end-of-life battery.

Resolution:
In accordance with APC’s interpretation of U.S. Department of Transportation regulations, APC ships this device with the internal battery pack disconnected. The front bezel of the unit is also not attached to the unit when shipped. This procedure provides for connection of the battery when the front bezel has been prematurely installed onto the chassis. Connect the internal battery pack as follows:

1. Grasp the front panel at the sides (Figure 4), and pull the front bezel from the unit.



2. Push the Battery Wire Connector (Figure 5) into the hole located at the left of the Battery Pack. Ensure that the Battery Wire Connector is pushed into the hole and securely connected by gently pulling on the wire to see if it is attached to the connector.



3. Install the battery retaining bar.

4. Install the front Bezel (Figure 6), by aligning the four pins located on the back-side of the Bezel to the holes at the left and right sides of the unit. Gently push the front Bezel onto the unit.
