Installing Remote Emergency Power-off
REPO is used to shut down the UPS from a distance. For example, this feature can be used for shutting
down the load and the UPS by thermal relay, in the event of room overtemperature. When REPO is
activated, the UPS shuts down the output and all its power converters immediately. The UPS logic
power remains on to issue an alarm.
The REPO feature shuts down the protected equipment immediately and does not follow the orderly
shutdown procedure initiated by any power management software. Any devices that are operating on
battery power are also shut down immediately.
When the REPO switch is reset, the equipment will not return to utility or battery power until the UPS
is manually restarted.
The REPO contacts are normally open.
The REPO circuit is an IEC 60950 safety extra low voltage (SELV) circuit. This circuit must be
separated from any hazardous voltage circuits by reinforced insulation.
CAUTION: The REPO must not be connected to any utility connected circuits. Reinforced insulation to the
utility is required. The REPO switch must have a minimum rating of 24 Vdc and 20 mA and be a dedicated
latching-type switch not tied into any other circuit. The REPO signal must remain active for at least 250 ms for
CAUTION: To ensure the UPS stops supplying power to the load during any mode of operation, the input
power must be disconnected from the UPS when the emergency power-off function is activated.
NOTE: For Europe, the emergency switch requirements are detailed in Harmonized document HD-384-48 S1,
“Electrical Installation of the Buildings, Part 4: Protection for Safety, Chapter 46: Isolation and Switching.”
