Battery Backup Power, Inc. online (double conversion) uninterruptible power supply (UPS) systems come with “Generator Mode”. This mode allows the uninterruptible power supply to use direct generator power as the input.
Enabling “Generator Mode” allows the Battery Backup Power, Inc. online uninterruptible power supply (UPS) to accept a wider voltage range and wider frequency variation than it would normally accept when plugged into a wall socket on grid power. This allows the UPS to use more of the generator’s somewhat dirtier power. When turning on “Generator Mode”, the “Bypass Disable” option pops up. This option allows you to essentially pass the generator power though the UPS unfiltered. In most cases, you will just press enter to leave the bypass option disabled.
When pressing the up/down option button, these are the options you will see before arriving at “Generator”.
