Testing (500 RT1U)

  1. To test your UPS, follow the owner's manual section titled "To Run a Self-Test" page 7.  The procedure will be similar to the following:
    1. With your UPS plugged in and turned on, press and hold the ON/OFF/STANDBY button for one second.
    2. The test will last approximately 10 seconds as the UPS switches to battery to test its load capacity and charge.
    3. All LEDs will be lit and the UPS alarm will sound.
    4. See LED descriptions to determine the results of the Self-Test.
    5. Note: you can leave connected equipment on during a self-test. Your UPS, however, will not perform a self-test if you have placed it in "Charge Only" mode.
