Guidance on What to Do with an Older UPS

“When should an older UPS be replaced with a new one?” is a question that virtually all data center owners will have to answer. The answer is not always self evident.

This paper provides data center owners and managers a simple framework for answering the question in the context of their own circumstances and requirements. Three options are explained and compared: run to fail, upgrade, and buy new.

Extended Warranty

Why invest in an APC extended warranty?

With the purchase of an APC extended warranty, you will enjoy a seamless 1-3 year extension of the standard factory warranty, depending on the service pack purchased. The extended warranty provides repair or replacement of your APC UPS, as well as your battery.

If your UPS is less than 3 years old, an extended warranty offers considerable benefits, including:

- Free shipping on replacement parts
- Free RBC replacement of non-functioning batteries
- 24/7 support to answer your questions, and give you peace of mind
- 1 and 3 year UPS warranty options

Replacement Battery

If your UPS is 3-5 years old, an APC replacement battery cartridge (RBC) is likely the best option for you. An RBC would provide you with:

- Complete assembly for easy hot-swap installation
- Free RBC replacement of non-functioning batteries
- Prepaid postage to a nearby recycling partner for battery disposal

Five reasons why you should only use a genuine APC RBC in your APC UPS

1. Use of a non-APC battery may result in lower runtime, damage the UPS, create hazardous conditions, or void safety certifications on the UPS 

2. Use of a non-APC battery will void APC’s Equipment Protection Policy. 

3. APC recycles used batteries. With each purchase of a genuine APC replacement battery, you get free freight back to APC for proper disposal of your old batteries (USA only) 

4. APC provides a 1-year warranty on each RBC. 

5. APC supplies the appropriate instructions, wires and connectors.

Learn How to Manage and Maximize Your UPS

This white paper discusses the key factors that influence both battery and UPS life, and provides simple recommendations and guidelines to help you manage your single-phase UPS.

Once a UPS has been in service for 10 years, owners should consider the following options:

1 - Buy new – Should the UPS be replaced with a new one?

2 - Upgrade - Can it be refurbished to extend life and performance for several more years?

3 - Do nothing - Or is it better to perform basic maintenance and let the device continue until it ceases performing?

Single Phase UPS Management, Maintenance, and Lifecycle

“How long will my battery last?” and “What is the best practice for maintaining my UPS?” are very common questions posed from UPS owners. Few realise there is more to the UPS than just battery back-up; and that, like all electronics it has a life expectancy.

Many of the factors that affect battery life also affect UPS electronics. Some factors may be controlled by taking some preventative measures or simply adjusting some basic UPS settings. This whitepaper discusses the key factors that influence both battery and UPS life; and provides some simple recommendations and guidelines to help you manage your single phase UPS to maximise the life and overall availability.
