A few questions re: the SURTD5000RMXLP3U

This was originally posted on APC forums on 5/24/2013


Hi, I'm building out a small server room for a new home and the SURTD5000RMXLP3U looks like a great fit for my server rack. I have a few questions about it:

- The specs say it supports 208V and 120V output; I assume it can do that simultaneously, is that correct? Most of my computers and networking gear can run at 208V, but I may have one or two devices that need 120V, and I want to make sure I can rack them in the same enclosure.

- With no load, what's the approximate power usage of the SURTD5000RMXLP3U?

- An EPO connection is optional, correct?

Thanks in advance; this forum looks like a fantastic resource and it's great to see a company like APC/Schneider offering this kind of support!

hello. i'll try to help answer.

  1. Yes, same time - if you look at the rear seen here -> SURTD5000RMXLP3U - More Images - it shows some 120V receptacles right on it along with some 208V ones which you may need to get a Rack PDU for to give you additional 208V outlets.
  2. Based on the online thermal dissipation value listed of 1589 and knowing 1 watt = 3.41BTU, that gives me about ~466 watts you could expect worst case.
  3. If you look at that same picture I posted above, there is actually a EPO terminal already on the UPS. It is on the bottom towards the right and lime green in color. More information in the user's guide on that.

Hi Angela,

Thanks for the very speedy response. Again, this is such a great resource.

Re: the EPO connection, I wasn't clear what I meant: I know there's a terminal on the UPS, but what I meant is, the UPS will operate even if the EPO terminal is not connected to an EPO switch, correct?

thanks!

You're very welcome. I am glad people like our community and can count on it as a resource.

And yes, EPO is optional - no requirement for you to have one unless required by your local code of course.
