CSA/NRTL — MARKS — BACKGROUND
What are the CSA and NRTL?
CSA (Canadian Standards Association also known as CSA International) was established in 1919 as
an independent testing laboratory in Canada. CSA received its recognition as an NRTL (Nationally
Recognized Testing Laboratory) in 1992 from OSHA (Occupational Safety and Health Administration) in
the United States of America (Docket No. NRTL-2-92). This was expanded and renewed in 1997, 1999,
and 2001. The specific notifications were posted on OSHA’s official website as follows:

Federal Register #: 59:40602 - 40609 [08/09/1994]


The product on which either of these marks appear
Federal Register #: 64:60240 - 60241 [11/04/1999] has been certified by CSA as meeting applicable
Federal Register #: 66:35271 - 35278 [07/03/2001] Canada/US standards.

When these marks appear with the indicator “C and US” or “NRTL/C” it means that the product is
certified for both the US and Canadian markets, to the applicable US and Canadian standards. (1)

Argus rectifier and power system products, bearing the aforementioned CSA marks, are
certified to CSA C22.2 No. 950 and UL 1950, or CSA/UL 60950.

As part of the reciprocal, US/Canada agreement regarding testing laboratories, the Standards Council
of Canada (Canada’s national accreditation body) granted Underwriters Laboratories (UL) authority to
certify products for sale in Canada. (2)
The product on which this mark
appears has been certified by UL
Only Underwriters Laboratories may grant a licence for the use of this mark, which indicates compliance as meeting applicable Canada/US
with both Canadian and US requirements. (3) standards.

What are NRTLs and what do they do?


NRTLs are third party organizations recognized by OSHA, US Department of Labor, under the NRTL
program.

The testing and certifications are based on product safety standards developed by US based standards
developing organizations and are often issued by the American National Standards Institute (ANSI). (4)

The NRTL determines that a product meets the requirements of an appropriate consensus-based
product safety standard either by successfully testing the product itself, or by verifying that a contract
laboratory has done so, and the NRTL certifies that the product meets the requirements of the product
safety standard. (4)

When was the NRTL started and who governs it?


In 1983, in a suit brought on by an independent testing laboratory, OSHA was court ordered to remove
specific references to UL (Underwriters Laboratories) and FMRC (Factory Mutual Research Corporation)
from its regulations.

In 1988, OSHA revised its regulations to remove those references and the NRTL program was
established.

The NRTL Program is both national and international in scope with foreign labs permitted.

4 Enclosure Installation

4.1 Site Considerations


The information in this section is intended as a guideline only; there may be site-specific
requirements and other factors that will require individual attention, such as jurisdictional codes
and construction covenants.

4.1.1 Site Selection


The supporting structure must be designed to support a fully configured enclosure. This will require a concrete
slab and any existing structures to be properly reinforced to support the floor loading. In addition, the mounting
site must be designed and installed in accordance with local building practices and codes.
Site consideration should include the following:
• Areas that may receive hot air exhaust from neighboring buildings or structures should be avoided.
• Any areas with architectural controls or environmental restrictions should be known.
• Areas prone to flooding should be avoided.
• A proper grounding system. See next section.

4.1.2 Enclosure Support


A supporting structure (slab, roof top, etc. with a minimum loading capacity of up to 600 lb./sq.ft.) is required to
support a fully loaded enclosure (batteries, air conditioning, etc.).

4.2 Enclosure Preparation


Remove the protective covering from the enclosure.
NOTE: Inspect the packing slip to verify that all equipment is there.
If batteries are on a separate pallet, they should not be installed until after the enclosure has been secured. If the
batteries are going to be placed within the enclosure, the inter-unit connectors must be installed.
Inspect moving parts, hardware, connectors, and installed equipment.
NOTE: In case of damage, report it according to procedure.
Remove and properly dispose of all packaging.

4.3 Lifting Preparation


CAUTION
All local safety practices and guidelines must be followed while lifting the enclosure.
Do not lift enclosure with batteries installed.

4.4 Enclosure Mounting
There are two sets of mounting holes in the base of the Te20b. The following figure shows the mounting hole
layout with all the battery trays removed:

Inside holes (4PL)

Outside holes (4PL)

Figure 4–Mounting hole layout

4.4.1 Concrete Pad


The “outside” holes are visible and accessible without removing battery trays.
Cast-in-place or pre-cast concrete slabs can be used. Install isolation pad to prevent moisture ingress.
Place the enclosure on the concrete slab and secure with Hilti HSL heavy-duty expansion anchor bolts or
approved equivalent. Secure the enclosure using the specific recommendations from the chosen fastener
manufacturer, taking into account the embedment depth and clear edge distances in order for the securing device
to achieve its full structural capacity. All alternates other than what is provided directly with the enclosure will need
to be reviewed by a registered professional engineer qualified to practice within the area where the enclosure is
being installed.
Alternate installation could be to use a chemical anchoring system such as Hilti HY150 for concrete or HY20 for
masonry along with suitable threaded rods and inserts from the same manufacturer. Spacing and placement
utilizing this method shall be performed as per the manufacturer’s recommendations.

4.4.2 Steel Platform


To access the “inside” holes it will be necessary to remove the bottom battery tray. See enclosed drawing for
dimensions.
Install isolation pad to prevent dissimilar metal corrosion.
It is recommended that the mounting bolts be 1.27cm (1/2”) diameter A325 structural bolts in conjunction with a
backing plate/clasp to grip the underside of the grating. Once the enclosure is in place, secure on the inside using
appropriate washers and bolts.

4.5 Enclosure to Enclosure Interface


The battery enclosure to power enclosure (cable bridge) interface installation kit can be mounted on either the left
or right side. This kit must be installed prior to installing the adjacent enclosure.

5.2 Grounding

DANGER
An enclosure that is not properly grounded can present an electrical hazard.
A proper grounding system that meets or exceeds the specifications of the equipment must be designed and
installed prior to or in conjunction with the construction of the mounting scenario. The ground system must be
bonded to the enclosure to ensure a “Common” or “Single-Point” Ground; some examples are:
New builds – Buried ground ring with bare solid conductor to ground rods.
Rooftop – Connection to building steel, water pipes, etc.
Refer to local codes and practices from the local power company. Size to suit.
Only a licensed electrician should connect any AC power and grounding to the enclosure. A dedicated ground rod
is required for the grounding the AC panel.
CAUTION
Do not route AC and DC wiring in the same conduit.

5.2.1 Site Ground Wire Entry


Located at the bottom corners (front and rear) of the enclosure, there are entry/exit points (center punch marks)
for making the external site ground wire connection.

6 Battery Installation
WARNING
Follow battery manufacturer’s safety recommendations when working around battery systems
and review the safety instructions provided in this manual.

6.1 Preparation/Mounting
The enclosure must be mounted (Section 4) before installation of the bottom tray of batteries may be completed.
Batteries should be located in a temperature-controlled environment; i.e., Tempest. The temperature should be
regulated at approx. 25°C (77°F). Significantly lower temperatures reduce performance and higher temperatures
decrease life expectancy.
Before assembly, clean cells (where applicable) as per the battery manufacturer's recommendations. First
neutralize any acid with a baking soda and water solution. Then wipe the cells with clean water.

6.2 Installation of Batteries in Argus Tempest Power Systems


Use a corrosion-inhibiting agent such as NO-OX or NCP-2 on all battery terminal connections.
1. Check the battery block voltage (typically >12.6V).
2. Disconnect Anderson connectors.
3. Slide the battery blocks onto the battery trays starting at the bottom (four per tray).
NOTE: The enclosure must be mounted before installation of the bottom tray of batteries may be completed.
4. Ensure that the battery output cabling will reach the [+] and [–] terminals of the series battery string and that
the batteries are oriented correctly for easy installation of the inter-unit “series” connectors.
5. Remove any no-oxide “A” grease from battery terminals.
6. Burnish terminal posts with a non-metallic brush, polishing pad or 3M-type scotch pad.
7. Apply a light coating of no-oxide “A” grease to the terminal posts.
8. If lead plated inter-unit connectors are used, they should also be burnished and no-oxide “A” grease applied
as above. Install the inter-unit connectors.
9. Connect the batteries to the pre-installed cables.
10. Install in-line battery fuse on one battery terminal inter-unit connector.
11. Repeat the above installation procedure for each shelf and battery string.
12. After all battery connections are completed, torque per battery specifications; for example:

Description Recommended Torque Value


GNB battery bolts 100 in-lbs
East Penn Deka battery bolts 45 in-lbs
Battery in-line fuse 75 in-lbs.

Table B–Sample torque specifications


13. Verify polarity and voltage at Anderson connectors.
NOTE: See system startup procedure before connecting batteries online.

7 System Startup
After completing the enclosure installation and power system wiring, perform the following startup and test
procedure to ensure proper operation:

7.1 Check Battery Polarity and Connect


• Energize DC feed to battery enclosure.
• Connect each battery string online as required.
• Install remaining power modules.
• In the adjustments menu of the system controller, set float and equalize voltage to the levels specified by the
battery manufacturer.
• Energize air conditioning unit.

7.2 Recommended Temperature Compensation Settings


If equipped, enable the temperature compensation (temp comp) feature (Batteries menu in Argus system
controller) and program the settings for slope and breakpoints (upper and lower) with respect to the specific
batteries used as shown in the following tables:

8 Test and Commissioning (Overview)

8.1 System
All Argus power system components undergo thorough factory testing. All levels/alarms are set to predetermined
values as detailed in their individual component manuals except where custom levels are specified. Good
installation practice is to check the operation of all features and alarms and to set the power system levels in
accordance with the specific requirements of your system.
NOTE: The individual system component manuals detail the methodology for testing and calibration of all components.

8.1.1 Environmental/Intrusion
Check operation of all enclosure features; such as air conditioning unit, high/low temperature alarms and intrusion
alarm.

8.2 Battery
After installation of batteries it is usually necessary to “initial charge” the batteries to ensure proper operation and
to eliminate plate sulfation. Follow guidelines supplied with the battery and record initial charge readings; i.e.
specific gravity, cell voltage, charge current and temperature.
NOTE: Battery warranty may be void if batteries are not initially charged following the manufacture's guidelines – with
proper records maintained.
Some VRLA batteries do not require initial charging if placed on charge within 3-6 months of manufacture, check
with the manufacturer.
After the equalization period battery voltage should be reduced to the recommended float level.
Once the batteries have been initial charged it is suggested to perform a short duration high rate discharge test on
the batteries to verify the connections on the batteries and also to verify that there are no open or failed cells. Cell
voltages should be monitored during this process:
• Discharge for 15 minutes at the C/8 rate.
• Record cell voltages every 5 minutes.
• Check for overheating connections.

8.3 Documentation
Complete all necessary documentation; i.e., battery reports (Table B), DC wiring lists, AC distribution tables, floor
plans, etc. Tag wires, fill out identification strips, and identify circuit breakers.

9 Maintenance
Although very little maintenance is required with Argus systems, routine checks and adjustments are
recommended to ensure optimum system performance. Qualified service personnel should do repairs.
The following table lists a few maintenance procedures for this system. These procedures should be performed at
least once a year.
WARNING: HIGH VOLTAGE AND SHOCK HAZARD.
Use extreme care when working inside the enclosure/shelf while the system is energized.
Do not make contact with live components or parts.
Circuit cards, including RAM chips, can be damaged by static electricity. Always wear a grounded
wrist strap when handling or installing circuit cards.

Procedure Date Completed


Clean ventilation openings
Inspect all system connections (re-torque as necessary)
Verify alarm/control settings
Verify alarm relay operation

Figure 8–Air conditioner

9.1.1 Air Conditioner Settings


The air conditioner is programmed with the factory default settings. Refer to the air conditioner manual (supplied
with the unit) for operation and maintenance details.
To access the controller for adjustments, remove the screws from the control panel cover plate (shown above).

9.1.2 Air Conditioner Filter
Air conditioners fail due to lack of maintenance, specifically dirty filters. Initially this filter should be checked
frequently until a proper maintenance schedule is developed.
IMPORTANT
It is recommended that filter maintenance be promptly scheduled, to eliminate failure possibilities.
To access the filter for cleaning (every 2 to 6 months), remove the screws from the filter holder on the side of the
air conditioner (shown above).

9.1.3 High Temperature Alarms and Air Conditioner Failures


The air conditioner is factory programmed however not every unit is checked for continual operation. If the air
conditioner is failing, refer to the air conditioner manual and check settings.
If the air conditioner is working and a "Hi-Temp" alarm is reported, check that the enclosure's Hi-Temp alarm
thermostat (in the battery compartment) is set to 35°C (95°F).

9.2 Batteries
It is recommended that checks be made every six months for battery voltage, conductance, temperature,
impedance, connections, etc.
See battery manual for general maintenance information.
