Notes:

1      Connect only one Windows-, Linux-, or VMware vSphere-based ftServer system directly to each qualified UPS as described in the site planning guide or hardware installation guide for your system. Connecting multiple ftServer systems or any peripheral components (for example, monitors, tape drives, storage systems, or Fibre Channel switches) to a Stratus-qualified UPS is not supported because these UPS models are sized only for the ftServer system.

2      If you need to provide battery backup for peripheral components, plan for additional UPS capacity to handle the load of these components, and test your configuration to ensure that it works properly when power is removed. If you need assistance in planning and testing your UPS configuration, contact the Stratus Customer Assistance Center (CAC) or your authorized Stratus service representative.

3      Site planning information for the UPS on the Stratus Web site and in the ftServer system documentation are of a general nature only. Do not rely exclusively on this information. Contact APC at http://www.apc.com/ for detailed UPS specifications, documentation, sizing, and ordering information.

Supported PCNS Versions

For ftServer 2800, 2810, 4800, 4810, 6800, or 6810 systems, download PowerChute Network Shutdown Software (PCNS) version 4.2 from http://www.apc.com/. During installation, when SNMP support is required, an alternate port needs to be chosen because the Stratus SNMP support is already using port 161.

UPS Topology

The Smart UPS On-Line provides high-density, true-double conversion on-line power protection. Based on this topology, it does not provide complete input-to-output isolation. The International models pass the input “neutral” to the output, unless there is a loss of input AC power and the UPS is on battery; that is the only time the input is isolated from the output. Site disturbances on the neutral conductor measured to earth ground are allowed to reach the load under normal operating conditions. ftServer V-Series systems require an isolation transformer on the UPS output to protect against site disturbances. When you use an isolation transformer, all input lines are isolated from the output and a local neutral/earth bond is derived on the load side. This ensures the cleanest power for the system.

UPS Battery Capacity

When planning for UPS battery capacity, it is important to understand the load requirements. For example, in the ftServer V Series UPS configurations listed in Table 5, the battery runtime has been sized for 20 minutes. This value is based on a shutdown period of 4 minutes times 3 (3 consecutive AC failures without time to recharge the batteries) and battery aging. If your specific applications take longer than 4 minutes to shut down, measure the time required for shutdown, and use your results to adjust the required battery capacity. UPS models are listed to meet multiple configurations, loading requirements, and regional locations. Use the AC Power and HVAC worksheets in your system's site planning guide to determine the power loading for your configuration.

Circuit Breakers

Be careful when specifying amperage and delay parameters for the branch circuit. When selecting circuit breakers in an electrical power system, configure the breakers appropriately to ensure that when an abnormal condition exists, the breaker closest to the abnormality in the distribution path trips before the larger upstream circuit breaker. This isolates and limits service interruption to the branch experiencing the problem. The coordination of protective devices, especially in a continuous availability server environment, should be designed by an appropriately experienced engineering service.
