Electrical Characteristics

Digital Signal Processor

  • Reduced number of components in the UPS also reduces the potential for defects or malfunctions
  • Digital Signal Processor, (DSP), combines many components into a single processor, increasing the reliability of the UPS and reducing any downtime potential
  • Helps ensure stable, quality power and long life span

High Output Power Factor

  • All models feature an output power factor of 0.9 which increases the Watt capacity of the units
  • Larger capacities in a smaller UPS VA rating can reduce the overall cost of the UPS solution for a specific load requirement

Output T.H.D.

  • Endeavor units maintain an output AC signal within 2% of a true sine wave pattern (Total Harmonic Distortion)
  • Prevents equipment damage from internal heat build up on sensitive connected equipment

Overload Capacity

  • Sudden spikes can occur when supporting IT infrastructure, industrial equipment, security installations or any electrically-driven load
  • Endeavor UPSs are designed to support such situations with the ability to absorb up to 150% of its rated load for up to 30 seconds
  • Allows the UPS to be sized for maximum capacity without worry of overload and shutdown, providing cost-savings

Independent Battery Bypass

  • An independent battery circuit allows the Endeavor UPS to operate in Normal Mode, even with weak, dead, or defective batteries
  • Endeavor UPSs monitor internal battery status at regular intervals; If the UPS detects weak or bad batteries, it will engage an audio alarm and also any preconfigured electronic notifications
  • Normal AC output will be maintained as long as utility power is supplied within the UPS’ nominal input range
  • The UPS will still a constant 120/208/240V signal and protection from any dangerous spikes or surges while allowing time to replace batteries without having to shut down connected equipment

Optional 240V Output

  • Endeavor units can be configured from the factory for use with 240V input and output applications for an additional charge
  • Include ED-240VAC with Endeavor 5-10 order for 240V configuration
  • For more information about this option, please contact your Minuteman representative

Communications

Bundled with SentryHD software

  • Minuteman SentryHD auto-shutdown and monitoring software included - see the Software tab for more details

SNMP-compatible (with SNMP-NET and SNMP-NV6 cards)

  • All models include a standard internal communication slot which is compatible with all current Minuteman SNMP card options
  • Adding an SNMP-NET or SNMP-NV6 card allows remote management and control over any IP-based network
  • The Option card slot and serial communications port can be operated simultaneously, allowing SNMP to be used in conjunction with Minuteman SentryHD software
  • SNMP enables SmartECO mode for increased energy savings

Battery Characteristics

Extended Runtime Capability

  • All models come bundled with a battery pack module
  • For protection through extended blackouts, the Endeavor Series can also utilize connections built into each battery pack to connect multiple units, providing virtually unlimited runtime capabilities
  • See the accessories tab for more information

External Battery Pack Chargers

  • An optional external battery pack charger is available for applications that requiring extended or extremely long runtimes (4 or more external battery packs)
  • These chargers can shorten the recharge time of all the connected battery packs exponentially
  • Critical for installation environments that experience frequent outages or long periodic outages

Battery Technology

  • All Endeavor 5-10kVA units and battery packs use valve-regulated lead-acid batteries (VRLA); safe for all freight transport
  • For added protection, all models ship with batteries disconnected.
  • A Quick Installation Guide is included with each unit to detail how to connect the batteries before startup

Hot-Swappable Batteries

  • Batteries in the Endeavor Series UPS can be replaced without the need to shut down the unit (requires removal from rack)
  • Connected loads are protected from voltage anomalies and spikes and surges while the batteries are being replaced.
