UPS R5500 power requirements

You can easily find the output requirements for this UPS.

But, can anybody specify what this UPS is using by itself? We are currently calculating the Power requirements and part of the calculation are the UPS input requirements?

Also when charging batteries, I assume that the UPS is pulling more Watts then in idle monitoring mode?

Re: UPS R5500 power requirements

The HP QuickSpec for the R5500 has self-disipation numbers in it. It gives On-Line and On-Battery BTU ratings for the R5500. To get back to Watts divide the BTU values by 3.41.

I'm not quite sure what to do about estimating the added load during a battery recharge cycle.
