Specifications

Connect the Battery

The Back-UPS is shipped with one battery cable disconnected. Remove the “Stop! 
Connect the Battery”
 label that covers the outlets. Prior to connecting any equipment 
to the unit, connect the battery cable to the unused battery terminal. It is normal for 
small sparks to be seen when the battery cable is connected to the battery terminal.    

Wall Mount Installation

Horizontal installation, use 2 screws 7.3" (186.3 mm) apart. 

Vertical installation, use 2 screws 5.4" (137.2 mm) apart. 

Allow 5/16" (8 mm), of the screw to protrude from the wall.

Replace Battery

Use only approved APC replacement battery cartridges.

Deliver used batteries to a battery replacement facility in the packaging provided by 
APC with the replacement battery cartridge. To order replacement battery cartridges 
contact APC.

Connect Equipment

Battery Backup + Surge Protection Outlets

Battery backup outlets provide protection to connected equipment when the 
Back-UPS is turned on and connected to utility power.

Battery backup outlets receive power from the Back-UPS for a limited period of time 
when a power outage, or brownout condition occurs.

Battery backup outlets provide protection from power surges or spikes.

Connect a computer, monitor and other peripheral devices to the outlets.

Surge Protection Outlets

Surge protection outlets provide protection to connected equipment when the 
Back-UPS is connected to utility power, and is switched on or off.

Surge protection outlets provide protection from power surges or spikes.

Connect a printer, scanner or other peripheral devices that do not need to remain on 
during power outages, or utility problems to the surge protection outlets.

Connect Network

The Back-UPS protects equipment connected to a 10/100 Base-T ethernet, from 
power surges when connected through the Back-UPS coaxial connectors.

PowerChute® Personal Edition Software

Overview

Use PowerChute Personal Edition software to configure the UPS settings.

Protect your computer and other equipment during a power outage. During a power 
outage, PowerChute will save any open files on your computer and safely shut it 
down. When power is restored, it will restart the computer.

Configure the UPS to use features such as power-saving outlets, shutdown 
configuration, and alarms.

Monitor the UPS for power usage and power events.

Note: PowerChute is only compatible with a Windows operating system. If you are 
using a Mac OSX, use the native shutdown feature to protect your system. See the 
documentation provided with your computer.

Installation

Use a USB cable to connect the Data port on the rear panel of the UPS to the USB port 
on your computer.

If the Back-UPS came with a PowerChute CD, insert the CD into your computer and 
follow the on-screen instructions

If the Back-UPS did not come with a PowerChute CD, go to www.apc.com and 
download the software free of charge.

Turn On the Back-UPS

Press the POWER ON button located on the top of the Back-UPS. The Power On/
Replace Battery
 LED will illuminate and a single short beep will be audible to 
indicate that the Back-UPS is providing protection for connected equipment.

The Back-UPS battery charges fully during the first 16 hours while connected to 
utility power. The Back-UPS battery will charge while the Back-UPS is switched on 
or off and is connected to utility power. Do not expect full battery run capability 
during the initial charge time. 

If the red Building Wiring Fault LED located on the side of the Back-UPS 
illuminates, do not operate the Back-UPS. Have a qualified electrician correct the 
building wiring fault.
