Installation Considerations. Incorporate the UPS module and
efficiency, and required clearances in the design. Special attention should
be given to floor loading for the battery room, entrance door dimensions for
installation of UPS modules, and ceiling height for clearance of necessary
NEC, OSHA, and ANSI Requirements. Design the battery room in
accordance with Article 480 of the "National Electrical Code", OSHA, and ANSI
requirements. Provide emergency eyewash and shower facilities which, at
minimum, comply with OSHA and ANSI Z35.1-81 Emergency Eyewash and Shower
Equipment. Such facilities for emergency quick drenching of the eyes and
body shall be provided within 25 ft (7.5 m) of the work area.
Emergency Lighting Requirements. Provide emergency lighting units,
which meet the requirements of Federal Specification W-L-305, Light Set,
Provide a telephone in or adjacent to the
UPS module room.
Environmental Control. Both the UPS module and battery room shall
be provided with an environmental control system to maintain the prescribed
inside room conditions. Each environmental control system shall consist of a
primary system with backup capability to support the uninterruptible
requirements of the electric power system. Upon failure of the primary
system, automatic transfer to the backup system shall occur and shall sound
an alarm indicating the need for maintenance. Design of these environmental
control systems shall be in accordance with DM-3 and DM-12.1.
