3. Use a Phillips screwdriver to remove the two mount screws located at the top corners of the battery pack. Set the screws aside in a safe place as you will need to replace them later.

4. Pull the battery module by the handle toward you to slide the battery module out of the UPS. Be careful, it is heavy. Have a second hand ready to suppot it as it slides out. DO NOT pull on the battery cables or the white cord.

8. Re-attach front bezel. Align the tabs on the side of the bezel with the slots on the front of the UPS and gently snap it into place.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can the battery be swapped live or do I need to shut down the UPS when replacing the battery?
The RBC27 can be installed live (hot swap). The unit does not need to be shut down when replacing the battery pack

How many RBC27's do I need for the SU48RMXLBP3U?
The SU48RMXLBP3U battery pack has two RBC27's installed. You will need two RBC27's. Both battery modules need to be replaced at once to ensure optimum performance. The SU48R3XLBP3U also requires two RBC27's.

I have changed the battery pack in my UPS but PowerChute does not show the run time has increased. Do I have a problem with my UPS?
The microprocessor in the UPS might need time to adjust to the new battery pack or a UPS calibration may be required. Leave the UPS charging for 8 hours then check the run time. If the run time has not increased, perform a run time calibration. 

How do I clear the Replace Battery LED?
To clear Replace Battery LED, a valid self test needs to be performed. For a Self Test to be valid, these conditions need to be met: Minimum of 4 bars on the battery graph and/or the unit must have been charging for 8 hours from the last low battery condition.

How to initiate a Self Test once the above conditions have been met:

1. Hold the TEST button on the front of the UPS for a minute
2. Use PowerChute to initiate a Self Test
3. Use the interface of a SmartSlot Management card (ie AP9606, AP9617, AP9619, AP9630, AP9631)
4. Restart the UPS

I replaced my old RBC27 with a new RBC27, followed the above procedures, but the Replace Battery LED is still on, what do I do?
Wait for the UPS to show more than 4 bars on the battery graph (leave it for up to 8 hours), then turn off the UPS, restart it. This should clear the error. If it does not, get in touch with us and we will help you troubleshoot and clear the error
