continues to sound after the test, the UPS’s outlets are overloaded. To
clear the overload, unplug some of your equipment and run the self-test
repeatedly until the “OUTPUT LOAD LEVEL” LED is no longer lit red
and the alarm is no longer sounding.
CAUTION! Any overload that is not corrected by the user immedi-

supplying output power in the event of a blackout or brownout.
• If the “BATTERY WARNING” LED remains lit and the alarm continues
to sound after the test, the UPS batteries need to be recharged or
replaced. Allow the UPS to recharge continuously for 12 hours, and
repeat the self-test. If the LED remains lit, contact Tripp Lite for service.
