Safely add or hot-swap the power module of an UPS

To minimise the time wasted by external call-outs, the end user must be able to add or hot-swap the power module themselves.

To avoid any risk of compromising the protected application, the firmware must be fully compatible.

Any firmware incompatibility must be detected immediately, before the new module is integrated in parallel with the other power modules feeding the charge.

To avoid any risk of errors, the firmware's incompatibility must be resolved without humans having to intervene. To do this, it should be solved through an automatic alignment and self-configuration.

Adding or hot swapping a power module must be done with the load fully protected by the UPS in use.

The firmware update operation is ensured without any interruption to the power.

On what basis to choose a firmware update?

Operator manipulating a module from a MODULYS GP modular UPSChoosing the firmware update process is critical to simplifying the process as much as possible, minimising any time-wasting and ensuring continuity of operation.

It is recommended to select an update process that does not require downloading, compatibility verification or specific tools. It must include an automatic procedure without human intervention and one that protects the application during the update.
