Belkin Pure AV (ap30800) questions

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
I picked up a Belkin AP 30800 UPS and surge suppressor for almost nothing. It sat in previous owners storage for 3 years, but I was willing to take a chance. Having been plugged in for a week it still will not power up. Bottom line up front: Will replacing the batteries will it power up and work?

I don't want to spend the $50 on batteries if that won't fix the problem.

I took some voltage measurements if that will help for those of you that might be in the know about these things.

Circuit breaker 118V (this is what I have coming out of wall)
2 outlets only on surge suppressor 118V
6 outlets under ups pwr 20V
batteries 7V (this was together, I didn't break them apart and measure each one)
Lines going to the batteries 30V (one comes from circuit board and other comes from what I assume is a transformer)

I've annotated in a picture if that is helpful.




Thanks,

Truck

Anyone have any ideas. I'm hoping for good news (ie. i can just get a couple of new batteries and everything will work great!) biggrin.gif

At the very least you will need to replace the batteries. After sitting 3 years, the current ones will have a serious sulfation problem.

FWIW I would expect 118V AC at all outlets when the device is plugged in and powered. The inverter shouldn't be running then.

From what I've read from other folks when their batteries go bad their equipment plugged in doesn't work. So maybe there is no bypass?

Your device is a standby UPS. There is a relay that switches the receptacles from line to inverter when power fails or goes out of limits.

I went ahead and ordered a couple of batteries. I found some 9AH ones for $40 w/3yr warranty. I figured it was worth giving it a try. Seems this unit may not be a standby UPS.

I'll report back what I find out once they arrive.

That is about all you can. What makes you think it is not a standby device? It is.

The only reason I am coming to that conclusion is everyone I've talked to that owns one that batteries have gone dead or low has lost all power to the UPS controlled outlets. I can't find a relay on the board that would switch power to battery. Happy to learn different if you can educate me and show me how to make it work otherwise.

To follow up. I received and replaced my batteries and machine seems to be running fine. For some reason, even if it is standby, it requires good batteries to power up and push power to the UPS outlets.
