Back ground Setup:
2 UPSes (Model SURT5000XLI) used as a Source A and B, 03 ATSes(model AP7723) is used to feed power to further racks.
Firmwares for UPS and ATS is already been updated with the latest ver 2.0.3.
Settings(frequency etc) have been set to maximum tolerance value for all 5 equipments.
ATS shows following events logs whether it is having input from the source A and B which is itself a UPS, and UPS generates 230V and 50Hz.

My question is Why ATS shows faults as voltages and frequency is coming from UPSes.It is observed that at the time of generator or supply outages these messeges are generated but still UPS is there in between main supply and ATS.
