    Electrical Characteristics

    Output Power Factor All Endeavor LCD models come with a 0.9 power factor of which increases the watt capacity of the units. Offering larger capacities in smaller UPS VA sizes reduces the overall cost of the UPS solution for a specific load requirement.

    Output Voltage

    All units in the Endeavor LCD Series produce an electrical signal that does not vary from nominal voltage by more than 2%. Tightly regulating the output voltage increases the quality of power to connected equipment adding to its life expectancy, which lowers the total cost of ownership to users.

    Total Harmonic Distortion (THD)

    THD is the distortion of a normal AC electrical signal commonly caused by non-linear loads. This distortion can cause internal heat to build up on sensitive equipment not designed to operate with these altered AC signals. The Endeavor LCD series provides power factor correction to reduce the THD and maintain a true sine wave output signal.

    Output Receptacle Control: The ability to extend the runtime of critical devices during an extended blackout is handled through the Endeavor LCD’s load shedding function. Each model in the Endeavor LCD UPS comes with three independently-circuited receptacle segments. Through the use of Minuteman’s SentryHD software or communication with the UPS through an Ethernet connection, users can either turn on, off, or reset each segment independently of the other. By reducing the load amount on the UPS, the runtime of critical devices on the UPS battery can be extended.


    Communication Features

    Simultaneous RS-232, USB and Ethernet communications: The Endeavor LCD UPS provides users with the ability to communicate with the UPS simultaneously through three separate protocols: RS-232, USB and Ethernet. Users can now directly connect and manage the UPS from multiple stand-alone, or networked computers. By including concurrent Ethernet communications (SNMP or direct IP address), the Endeavor LCD UPS can provide detailed monitoring and management to many various environments.


    Other Features

    RoHS 2 Compliance

    Recognizing the benefit of being environmentally conscious, Para Systems developed the Endeavor LCD UPS Series to be compliant with the European Economic Unions directive on the reduction of hazardous substances (RoHS 2), in electronic equipment.

    Energy Star Certified

    All models of the Endeavor LCD meet Energy Star's energy efficiency standards, ensuring efficient use of utility power and energy cost savings for users.

    Manual and Automatic Self-Testing

    The Endeavor LCD UPS is designed to proactively notify users of any impending faults or failures with the UPS. This allows for preemptive repair or replacement of components or batteries preventing unexpected downtime caused by the UPS.

    Dedicated EPO Port

    This direct access port allows users to perform an immediate remote shutdown of the UPS in cases of emergency or when access to the UPS is restricted or inconvenient.


    Battery Characteristics

    Extended Runtime Capability

    All models in the Endeavor LCD Series come standard with internal batteries. To protect critical devices through extended blackouts, the Endeavor LCD Series utilizes external battery packs that can be daisy-chained in unlimited quantities to provide a virtual unlimited amount of runtime.

    Fast Battery Recharge

    With independent chargers in each battery pack (XL models only) offered for the Endeavor LCD Series, the recharge time is 8-hours to 90% capacity after a full load discharge, no matter how many battery packs are installed on a UPS. Without these chargers, if more than one battery pack is used battery recharging could take more than an entire day.

    Battery Technology

    All Endeavor LCD units and battery packs use valve-regulated lead-acid batteries (VRLA). All are safe for any type of freight transport: air, sea or ground. For added protection, all Endeavor LCD UPS models ship with these batteries disconnected. A “Quick Installation Guide” is included in each Endeavor LCD box to detail how to connect the batteries before putting the units into service.

    Hot-Swappable Batteries

    All models in the Endeavor LCD line offer battery replacement, through the front panel of the UPS, without having to remove the UPS from service. Connected loads are protected from voltage anomalies and spikes and surges while the batteries are being replaced.
