Its an intermittent issue where the ups,which is in use, suddenly gives a long continuous beep with the power led turned to red.
The beep doesn't stop until i turn the ups. First i thought it might be some overload and removed every appliance from the ups and tried operating it. But unfortunately that didn't solve anything. But he told me that its a site isssue and noted the following observations and told me that its a Site issue. It is very possible that an on-site electrical issue has caused damage to the unit.
Yes You are right on the part number. I am using Bx C-IN.
I replicated the issue multiple times by cutting off the power to the ups abruptly and then back on mains.
When the power to ups is restored ,the ups goes into fault mode. But the confusing thing is that if i do this 10 timesthe issue comes up like 5 times out of the 10 times. The Neutral to earth Voltage measured during this process was around 10V.
I would recommend contacting your local support for confirmation that the unit is operating abnormally and to obtain a replacement if you are eligible. I will advise however, unless the Overloaded Neutral is corrected you will likely continue to see failures.

Design Portal.An APC power supply helps to protect your sensitive electronic equipment from power surges and failures. Depending on the current condition of the battery, the unit may emit sounds to alert you about normal operating conditions or issues with the unit. Paying attention to these beeps can help you to diagnose and correct any issues with your device.
According to Schneider Electric, an APC battery system may emit an infrequent single tone to let you know when a system functions normally. Provided the tone only emits a single beep and doesn't display any insistent behavior, such as long tones, double beeps, or a beep that recurs on a regular basis, you shouldn't need to take any action on the device.
Check for damaged or loose connections to rule out issues with the cables. Try plugging in a tested and working lamp to the wall outlet to see if the lamp flickers. If it does flicker, contact an electrician to rule out wiring issues in your home. Your system may emit a series of beeps at a set interval. Four beeps every 30 seconds may indicate the unit has switched to battery power and no longer receives power from the wall outlet. The most likely scenario involves the battery getting unplugged from the wall or an outage interrupting the supply of power.
Brief power interruptions may result in only one or two beeps. The APC unit may determine that the input voltage received doesn't provide enough power for your computer, resulting in a disconnect from the power supply.
If the issue occurs repeatedly, try a different power outlet and consult an electrician. Attaching too many high-powered devices to your APC backup could result in a continuous tone. The continuous tone lets you know when the device detects an overload condition; the tone usually accompanies a red indicator light. If you have any equipment that doesn't need protection, remove it from the battery backup supply and plug it into a regular wall outlet with a surge protector.
Make sure you only connect devices using the provided outlets and avoid the temptation to add additional extension cords or plug outlets to the device.
Continuous beeping accompanied by an amber colored light indicates a nearly exhausted power supply. The power supply protects itself from a complete discharge that could harm the components by shutting down before the battery is completely drained. When this occurs, shut down all of your equipment until you can restore power to the device.
The warning beeping indicates that you only have about two minutes to shut down your computer to prevent data loss. Connecting your power supply to your computer with a USB cable and installing software for your APC device allows you to change the warning to five, seven or 10 minutes. You can also set your computer to shut down automatically when the warning goes off. The worst-case scenario involves a continuous beep for one minute that repeats every five hours.
How to Reset/Self-Test a SmartPro UPS System
This indicates the battery failed the self-test. You can manually check the battery by pressing and holding the power button until you hear the second beep. If the unit continues the behavior, you need to take it in for repair. You can order a replacement battery for out-of-warranty units. By : Avery Martin. Share Share on Facebook.

Has anyone ever had this? If this goes on long enough, the battery could be drained to the point where it can no longer support the load while on battery, and this may explain why the output form the UPS is going on and off.
Depending on your UPS model, and operating system, you may be able to use PowerChute software to lower the UPSs sensitivity to power distortion, and stop the constant switching. Also, if you are using PowerChute software, you may be able to view a log or record of power disturbances. That may help you figure out exactly what is happening. Many laser printers draws power in pulses causing notches in line voltage.
Put the laser printer on a separate circuit even if you have to run an extension cord. Lowering the sensitivity using the button on the back of it seemed to fix it.
It was being powered from a small village's naff power supply at the time They all seem to click onto battery at odd moments, some more than others, they do do "tests" on a daily basis. Is it your electricity supply that is the problem? We used to have a server room that had all the UPSs click onto battery when we turned the computer rooms on and off in the morning.

The UPS has its own dedicated feed from the consumer unit so unless there is problems further down the line I dont think it will be that. Thanks for all the responses. Originally Posted by ChrisH.

The UPS started clicking a month ago.
It would click a lot sometimes like once in seconds and click little like once in 30 mins. I had replaced the batteries about 8 months ago.
The APC service guy dropped in and didn't really have a clue. He kept stressing that if the sensitivity is set to low it wouldn't click. I had a hard time convincing him that the UPS must not click with default factory setting.With the blustery winter weather comes the occasional power outage. Most of which are just a few seconds. Why do I need to know the power is off?long beep sound on ups, 100% solution in hindi.हिंदी में रिपेयरिंग करना सीखे
A power outage of less then a few minutes is certainly not an emergency around here, especially because I have all these UPSs. The biggest problem is the beeping! Some UPS models can be adjusted in software to not beep, but that is less then reliable, and sometimes it needs to be reset after a power outage. When I tell something to not beep, I expect it to always not beep until I tell it to beep!
Sufficiently annoyed, I set to remedy the situation by physically disconnecting the beepers in all 8 UPSs. Originally I was going to just clip the beeper wires to permanently disable them, but I thought that it would be even better if I could occasionally turn the beeper back on to hear what it had to say. Disabling the UPS beeper is fairly easy if you know what to look for. After opening the UPS, look for a round thingy with a hole in it, usually about a half inch diameter to 1 inch diameter.
That will be the beeper. Usually there is nothing else that could be mistaken for the beeper. Wrong priority! Really Lame!
That was the last straw. See diagram. Re-solder one leg back to the board, and run the wire from the other leg to the switch, and back to the board where that leg formerly connected to.
The white junk on the side of the beeper is glue. I had to use a razor blade to carefully disconnect before de-soldering the beeper.February - last edited February Any ideas as to what my UPS is trying to tell me?
Go to Solution. February You may want to just try plugging your Tower only into the backup. That is a fairly low end battery backup, that isn't really designed to have a whole bunch of power being pulled through it. As far as how it will do being plugged directly into the wall, well mine is that way now, I used to have UPS but the good ones are expensive and I don't have the spare cash to replace so yeah it will work.
But then again, the power grid in my area is fairly stable, and the outages and brownouts are few and far between. So it depends on the condition of your power grid for your home. If you have lots of outages and worse yet brownouts that half lit when power is sorta still on but not really then you really need to have an UPS to prevent all sorts of issues. If you are in a stable area, then most likely you can get by without it Just to let you know, that UPS is only good for about min backup View in thread.
You will have to consult your manual on it to be sure or check the website. I thought it usually meant it was overloaded My monitor and speaker system is also connected with it.

Seeing as it's mainly a battery backup, wouldn't it just push the current through? Also, until I look into a new one, would it be fine to plug the PC cable into the wall?

You will need to feed the positive and negative cables through the slot they feed through the lower case. I actually took the picture below when I was re-assembling it because I forgot to take a picture when I was disassembling it. The transformer will be loose, the power plug grommet will come out of the case, the reset button will come out, and the circuitboard will come loose too, and this is what it probably will look when you get yours apart note that the circuitboard came up and out of its slot and the transformer is sitting on the desk out of the case, and a couple wire connectors came off too :.
I considered putting a piece of tape over the hole in the top of the buzzer but when I placed my finger over the hole I still could hear the buzzer quite a bit so I felt like I needed to do something more extreme. I took some solder braid and removed the solder from the back of the board. I then grabbed the buzzer on one side and pulled gently on it while I heated each leg individually and popped out the buzzer.
With my light behind the board you can see the round silhouette of the buzzer through the board:. The first step for me was connecting the white and black wires under where the circuitboard sits. Note that the color of the wire is imprinted on the plastic behind the connectors:. Watch to make sure the power button goes in its hole. There is a slot on either side of the case, which holds the circuit board in place:.
I actually installed the battery at this point, before reinstalling the screws just to make sure it was working correctly. Be careful that the battery connections are tight. When I replaced the battery in my other post I took a pliers and squeezed the connecter closed a bit so that it made a good connection. The LED is green when it is on and working correctly. You will need to monitor the led light because it now will be your only physical indicator that the APC is running correctly aside from any software monitoring you may have installed :.
I have the series. Followed the instructions and removed the buzzer. I put it back together, plugged it in and turned it on. The power light comes on flashes I hear a click and it turns off.
Two of the eight outlets work. Any ideas? I would verify that every connector is fully seated. Did you perhaps reverse the black and white words when you reconnected them?An uninterruptible power supply, provides power to your computer for a short time if it loses power for any reason.
For laptops, this is less important, as they have their own internal battery. But for desktops, this is the difference between losing changes to every unsaved file you have open when the power fails, and having a precious few minutes to save all of that work and shut down your computer properly. A UPS also protects you from computer damage.
All plugs on a UPS function as a surge protector, preventing sudden bursts of power from damaging or destroying your computer hardware. Brownouts can still cause hardware damage in some cases, however, including the loss of data on hard drives.
Most UPSs are designed to keep computers operational only for a short period of time, not for prolonged use. A constant beep every second or two, and never stopping generally means the UPS is very low on battery power, and you should shut down immediately. Give your IT team a call or send them an email and let them know they need to come take a look at your UPS.
Like anything with a battery, they do need replacement periodically. To learn more about how WingSwept can help your business protect its data and increase your return on your technology investment, call us at Increased productivity. Reduced risk. What is a UPS, and what does it do?
