Power Trust II MR

I have an old A6583A. All the battery indicator lights are amber. Is this normal? Or should they be green? I can't find any documentation that tells me about the color of the lights.

Jim,

I found a manual (hardcopy) for a A3589A Power Trust (5.5kVA Rack Mount UPS). It says that a yellow battery power light indicates that the unit is supplying power from its battery. It may also light momentarily when the UPS is adjusting to a change in input voltage.

Sounds like you're "on battery".

It's not on battery cause if it where the system would have shutdown by now.

Re: Power Trust II MR

It's the LEDs on the front panel. The manual you attached doesn't pertain to the unit I have. (A6538A)
There are 4 of them on the front panel. The front panel lables them as "% of battery life or load". They are all amber. I don't know if the normal state would be green for these lights. Amber usually means there is a problem. I just want to find out what is there normal state.

Re: Power Trust II MR

each light on should represent 25% battery capacity available. there may/should be other indicators for line power / on battery etc.

on the other hand, this unit went out of production in 2002. Unless the battery has been replaced, it is at least 7 years old. I have no clue what the life expectancy of the battery would be (~5yrs?).

If you can schedule some downtime, you might consider a service outage, shutdown and interrupt the line power to see what happens.
