UPS Monitoring : UPS Events : UPS Initiated Bypass
UPS Initiated Bypass
Severity: Critical
The UPS is reporting an internal hardware issue that has caused the UPS to switch to bypass operation.
The action required depends on the type of hardware issue that causes the bypass. The event causing the bypass condition is also logged to the event log, e.g. UPS Fault (Error Code). Refer to the Operation Manual of your UPS for more information on possible causes or contact APC Customer Support for further assistance, referencing the UPS Error Code or UPS event that occurred at the time the UPS initiated the bypass condition.
NOTE: While in bypass, the battery is not supporting the load. If a power outage occurs, the devices connected to the UPS are not protected by the UPS battery.
