As part of a technical working group of our company, I was tasked and assigned to conduct research for the best modular type of ups - so far I got an eye on the apc symmetra px 250/500 ups modular system..
I need some inputs to finalized our terms of reference prior sending it to our contractors..
I just want to know if this kind of ups are capable to have a cold start operation (start on battery mode during power failure) ? Kindly send some technical reference.

Yes APC Symmetra PX 250/500 is fully capable to have a cold start operation. You dont need to provide input power for a start up. you can do it through battery bank. Battery bank breaker need to be manually operated. Any specific technical thing required plz let me know
