Overview

Do you need to protect medium- to large-size servers, networking equipment and telecom systems against data loss, downtime and equipment damage due to power outages, voltage fluctuations and transient surges? Tripp Lite’s SU3000XLCD SmartOnline® Tower UPS System is the solution! Featuring a 3000VA/2700W capacity and true on-line operation with pure sine wave output and zero transfer time to battery, it provides the highest level of power protection for mission-critical equipment. The SU3000XLCD’s large internal battery set supports connected equipment during blackouts, and runtime is expandable with optional external battery packs (Tripp Lite model BP72V15-2U or BP72V28RT-3U), sold separately. The SU3000XLCD has 9 AC outlets (8 5-15/20R, 1 L5-30R), including 2 load banks of 3 outlets each that are individually controllable to reboot select equipment on demand or maximize battery runtime for mission-critical equipment. USB and DB9 communication ports support messaging of detailed UPS operational parameters and line power status. PowerAlert UPS management software is available via free download. The SU3000XLCD also accepts an optional network management card option. It comes backed by $250,000 Ultimate Lifetime Insurance (U.S., Canada, and Puerto Rico only).

Features

Ideal for Protection of Mission-Critical Equipment
The SU3000XLCD provides true on-line operation, reliable battery backup and comprehensive power management capability in a compact tower form factor. Featuring a 3000VA/2700W capacity, 9 AC outlets (8 5-15/20R, 1 L5-30R), a 10-ft. cord with locking L5-30P plug, USB/DB9 ports and a slot for an optional network management card options, such as Tripp Lite's SNMPWEBCARD, the SU3000XLCD offers a complete power protection solution for medium- to large-size servers, storage devices, telecom systems and other mission-critical equipment.

True On-Line Operation with Pure Sine Wave Output and Zero Transfer Time
The SU3000XLCD provides the highest level of protection available for mission-critical equipment. It actively converts raw incoming AC power to DC, then re-converts it back to regulated, filtered AC output with a pure sine wave, completely isolating connected components from all power problems. Zero transfer time between AC and battery operation maintains continuous output and further protects connected equipment from the disruptive effects of blackouts and severe low-voltage conditions. Sine wave output guarantees compatibility with all equipment types.

Individually Controllable Outlets
The SU3000XLCD includes 2 load banks of 4 outlets each that are individually controllable via a software interface for remote reboot of locked-up equipment or load shedding to maximize battery backup time for mission-critical equipment.

Reliable, Expandable Battery Backup

UPS battery backup keeps connected equipment operational through short power failures, and provides time to save data and perform an orderly system shutdown in case of a prolonged blackout. The SU3000XLCD features a large internal battery set that provides 13.2 minutes of battery support for a half load (1350 watts) and 4.1 minutes for a full load (2700 watts). During normal operation, incoming utility power keeps the UPS battery fully charged so that backup power will always be available if needed. Intelligent battery management system extends battery life. For mission-critical applications demanding continuous uptime, the fully scalable SU3000XLCD can provide expandable runtime with optional external battery packs (Tripp Lite model BP72V15-2U or BP72V28RT-3U), sold separately.

High Power Factor and Highly Efficient Operation Reduces BTU Output

The SU3000XLCD features a high 0.9 power factor and an optional, highly efficient economy mode setting that can significantly reduce a facility’s energy costs. In economy mode, the UPS operates with 98% efficiency, minimizing heat output, reducing cooling requirements and consuming less electricity.

AC and Tel/Ethernet Line Surge Suppression

A sudden power surge or spike can damage or destroy electronic components and wipe out irreplaceable data. The SU3000XLCD features a 570-joule surge suppression rating to protect connected components and data from the harmful effects of power surges. One set of tel/Ethernet (RJ45) jacks provides surge protection for a standard phone or network connection (cable not included).

EMI/RFI Line Noise Filtering
Various electrical and radio sources can cause disruptive interference on the AC line. This line noise is a common cause of incremental hardware damage, data corruption and audio/video performance problems. The SU3000XLCD incorporates technology that filters out disruptive line noise, preventing it from affecting your equipment.

LCD Screen and Audible Alarm
The SU3000XLCD features a front-panel LCD screen that enables IT personnel to monitor line power, on-line mode, bypass mode, on-battery, overload, battery low, replace battery and fault status information. It is supplemented by an audible alarm that signals UPS startup, power failure, low battery, overload, UPS fault and remote shutdown conditions.

USB/DB9 Ports, Management Card Options and Included PowerAlert Software
SU3000XLCD includes HID-compliant USB interface that enables integration with built-in power management and auto shutdown features of Windows and Mac OS X. USB and DB9 ports enable data-saving unattended shutdown when used with Tripp Lite's PowerAlert software, available via FREE download from www.tripplite.com/poweralert. Compatible with Tripp Lite UPS management card options TLNETCARD, WEBCARDLX, SNMPWEBCARD, MODBUSCARD and RELAYIOCARD.

Emergency Power Off (EPO) Capability
The SU3000XLCD features an EPO interface port that supports emergency shutoff in large facilities (cable included).

Peace of Mind
The SU3000XLCD comes with $250,000 Ultimate Lifetime Insurance (U.S., Canada, and Puerto Rico only) for connected equipment.

Frequently Asked Questions

Follow the steps below to reset discharge for SU-series LCD tower UPS systems: Power off and disconnect any equipment plugged into the outlets of the UPS system. Press and hold the OFF button on the control panel and release the button during the solid tone alarm. (Do not wait until after the solid tone alarm has ended.) The unit will now be in either Standby Mode (indicated by the LCD showing OFF with the Input AC Indicator and OUT icons lit) or Bypass Mode (indicated by the LCD showing the input voltage provided to the UPS along with the Bypass Icon and Input AC Indicator lit). Disconnect the UPS from its AC input source. Verify the UPS is powered off; make sure the LCD screen is not lit and the fan has stopped operating. Remove the front faceplate of the UPS. Locate the battery connectors that connect to the charger output terminal of the UPS. Disconnect the battery from the charger. Locate the ON button on the left side of the LCD, directly next to the screen. Press and hold the button for 10 seconds and then release it. Reconnect the battery connectors to the charger output connector. Reinstall the front faceplate. Connect the UPS to a known working AC source. Upon connection, the fan will begin to operate and the control panel will show OFF. The Input AC Indicator and OUT icons will be lit. Press and hold the ON button and release it during the solid tone alarm emitted by the UPS. Do not wait until after the solid tone alarm has ended.
In Economy Mode, the UPS increases efficiency by implementing dynamic double conversion, which means it suspends or resumes double conversion automatically as the quality of input power changes. For a full explanation of Economy Mode, click here
