Electrical Characteristics

Output Power Factor All EnterprisePlus LCD models up to 1500VA come with a 0.8 power factor of which increases the watt capacity of the units. The 2000VA model has a 0.88 power factor and the 3000VA has a 0.853 power factor. Offering larger capacities in smaller UPS VA sizes reduces the overall cost of the UPS solution for a specific load requirement.

Output Voltage

All units in the EnterprisePlus LCD Series produce an electrical signal that does not vary from nominal voltage by more than 5%. Tightly regulating the output voltage increases the quality of power to connected equipment adding to its life expectancy, which lowers the total cost of ownership to users.

Total Harmonic Distortion (THD)

THD is the distortion of a normal AC electrical signal commonly causes UPS when connected loads near the capacity of the units. This distortion can cause internal heat to build up on sensitive equipment not designed to allow for these altered AC signals. The EnterprisePlus LCD UPS maintains an output AC signal, at all times and with linear loads, within 2% of a true sine wave.

Output Receptacle Control: The ability to extend the runtime of critical devices during an extended blackout is handled through the EnterprisePlus LCD’s load shedding function. Each model in the EnterprisePlus LCD UPS comes with two independently-circuited receptacle segments. Through the use of Minuteman’s SentryPlus software or communication with the UPS through an Ethernet connection, users can either turn on, off, or reset each segment independently of the other. By reducing the load amount on the UPS, the runtime of critical devices on the UPS battery can be extended.

Communication Features

Simultaneous RS-232, USB and Ethernet communications: The EnterprisePlus LCD UPS provides users with the ability to communicate with the UPS simultaneously through three separate protocols: RS-232, USB and Ethernet. Users can now directly connect and manage the UPS from multiple stand-alone, or networked computers. By including concurrent Ethernet communications (SNMP or direct IP address), the EnterprisePlus LCD UPS can provide detailed monitoring and management to many various environments.

Other Features

RoHS 2 Compliance

Recognizing the benefit of being environmentally conscious, Para Systems developed the EnterprisePlus LCD UPS Series to be compliant with the European Economic Unions directive on the reduction of hazardous substances (RoHS 2), in electronic equipment.

Manual and Automatic Self-Testing

The EnterprisePlus LCD UPS is designed to proactively notify users of any impending faults or failures with the UPS. This allows for preemptive repair or replacement of components or batteries preventing unexpected downtime caused by the UPS.

Dedicated EPO Port

This direct access port allows users to perform an immediate remote shutdown of the UPS in cases of emergency or when access to the UPS is restricted or inconvenient.

Battery Characteristics

Extended Runtime Capability

All models in the EnterprisePlus LCD Series come standard with internal batteries. To protect critical devices through extended blackouts, the EnterprisePlus LCD Series utilizes external battery packs that can be daisy-chained in unlimited quantities to provide a virtual unlimited amount of runtime.

Fast Battery Recharge

With independent chargers in each battery pack offered for the EnterprisePlus LCD Series, the maximum recharge time for depleted batteries is 4-8 hours, no matter how many battery packs are installed on a UPS. Without these chargers, if more than one battery pack is used battery charging could take more than an entire day.

Battery Technology

All EnterprisePlus LCD units and battery packs use valve-regulated lead-acid batteries (VRLA). All are safe for any type of freight transport: air, sea or ground. For added protection, all EnterprisePlus LCD UPS models ship with these batteries disconnected. A “Quick Installation Guide” is included in each EnterprisePlus LCD box to detail how to connect the batteries before turning the units on.

Hot-Swappable Batteries

All models in the EnterprisePlus LCD line offer battery replacement, through the front panel of the UPS, without having to remove the UPS from service. Connected loads are protected from voltage anomalies and spikes and surges while the batteries are being replaced.

Battery Pack Models

Because each UPS has different battery requirements to support its maximum load capacity, the EnterprisePlus LCD Series uses battery packs sized to match each UPS model:

External battery packs
  • BP36RTXL external battery pack for E750RTXL2U, E1000RTXL2U, E1500RTXL2U and E1500RTXLT2U

Optional mounting brackets

Power management via SNMP Communications

Optional SNMP-NV6 and SNMP-NET cards allow easy management of UPS without the need of a connected PC or server

Extended Warranty Plans

5 Full Years of Trouble-free Service - Guaranteed

Minuteman UPSs already ship with the best warranty in the business at 3 years, including non-prorated battery coverage on most products.

Two levels of Extended Warranty Plans are also available on most UPS product lines to provide an additional 2 years of coverage. These plans ensure a full 5 years of trouble-free ownership.
