For OSHPD Preapproval (OSP) of Smart-UPS and NetShelter VX or 2-Post Rack: is it required to install all of the Smart-UPS models shown in the test documents in order to meet OSHPD compliance?

Published date: 22 November 2019

Issue:
Need to know if the UPS models on the list can be installed as needed, or if the exact test setups need to be duplicated. 

Environment:
NetShelter VX Seismic and 2-Post Racks, all versions and serial ranges.

Cause:

The OSHPD Preapproval (OSP) document shows specific combinations of Smart-UPS installed into the cabinet/rack for testing. 

Resolution:

No, it is not required to duplicate all of the Smart-UPS that were installed into the cabinet for testing. It will still be compliant with just one UPS from the list. 
Various Smart-UPS are installed for testing just to add loads at various heights in the cabinet. 
It is best practices to install all heavy equipment, like the Smart-UPS and batteries, at the bottom of the cabinet.
