I think my UPS just died! My system suddenly suffered a hard shut down and the UPS began emitting a steady whistle while flashing the power light on the unit. It's off to the APC site to see if that is indeed the case.<br><br><br>
Not to brag but I have a new 50,000 KVA UPS installed at work. It took them 4 days to remove the battery part from the wooden pallet. It was the warning sign on the side that said something about fatalities incurred if the thing tipped over. Comes in three parts and the lightest I think is around 2,200 pounds. It think it is a tad overkill but that purchase wasn't my call.<br><br><br><br><br><br><br><br>

I mistyped. I should have left the K out if I wrote out the thousands. It is 50KVA or 50,000 VA. But you probably knew that. The thing would have to be as big as a house at 50,000 KVA.<br><br>It's a Liebert, size of three large upright freezers strapped together. There is a big AC unit installed right in the same small room so doesn't get too warm. <br><br>Fun Fact: they blew it on design and install. They moved the AC unit directly above it because the original spot would be hard to hang it. Two days before the UPS was turned on the AC malfunctioned and tried to cool to 45F. Everything froze up then broke. So several gallons of water came off the chiller and poured right into the electronics. It is likely that if 50,000 volts, 480 Amp input into all that stored juice and the thing would not have been able to keep from exploding. My office is 40 feet away with two cinderblock walls in between. <br><br>Except for the timing I would likely still be on extended vacation right now as they rebuilt my lab.<br><br><br><br><br><br><br>
