      Answer

      Thank you for your inquiry. The size of the load attached to the UPS impacts the amount of runtime it can provide. With a 65 watt load attached, the BN1080G could run for 108 minutes. However, with a 325 watt load, the runtime decreases to 13 minutes.

  • Question
    What it the battery's voltage? Is there a way to hook an external battery to it to allow longer run-time?   (10 Answers)

    I'd like to use it in a motorhome and have the 12 volt batteries as the back-up power source. That would allow me to run the motorhome off AC when parked and off the UPS when driving.

      Thank you for your inquiry.The BN1080G contains 2 12 volt 7-7.2 amp hour batteries. It is not designed for use with an external battery bank and this not a configuration we would recommend or support.

      Answer

      This unit has 4 outputs that are on the battery backup and 4 outlets that are only on surge protection from the power in your house. The outlets that are backed up are also on surge protection when operating on house power.

        Answer

        Thank you for your inquiry. Yes, the BN1080G will work with an active PFC power supply. However, we just need to be sure the solution is sized correctly. If the power supply is rated for 500 watts or higher, we would recommend using one of our Smart-UPS instead.

        which product can I use to power my sump pump   (10 Answers)

          Answer

          This would be controlled by the amount of times your pump kicks on during that period. That would vary based upon the water table in your area and rainfall. There are DC sump pumps available that will run on a wet cell (car 12volt) battery. That would be a more efficient way to handle your requirement. The pump would always run off the battery and you would use a car battery charger to keep the battery "topped off" and to recharge it fairly quickly if you do run from the battery for a long period of time. If you are subject to frequent, extended outages you might want to consider a deep cycle, marine battery.

          Is the unit completely silent during normal operation, no running fans? And will only beep during a power outage? Thank you   (5 Answers)

            Answer

            Thank you for your inquiry. The BN1080G does have a fan, which you may here turn on when the unit is charging the battery or if it needs to adjust to any change in the environment. You will hear a soft hum when the fan is charging, so we could not say the unit is completely silent at all time.

            Answer

            This UPS has a feature called 'AVR' (Automatic Voltage Regulation). AVR is a feature of Line Interactive Topology. With AVR Technology, instead of going to battery during high or low input voltages, the unit will increase (BOOST) or reduce (TRIM) the voltage to a safe operating range. This is achieved by re-routing the input voltage through the internal Automatic Voltage Regulating transformer, all without running off of the internal battery. The main advantage of this is that it helps to prolong the life of the battery and extends the operating range in which the UPS can operate online.
