The primary reason for having this function is always to allow the UPS system to be 'made safe' in case of an emergency.

EPO (Emergency Power Off), this feature on UPS systems could cause several problems to the smooth running of the power protection installation. The major reason for having this feature is always to permit the UPS process to be 'made safe' in the event of an emergency. Procedure of the Emergency Power Off will, with most uninterruptible power supplies, stop the rectifier and inverter (charger) and disconnect the battery. Due to the economics of charge and size, in several cases the inverter may be just stopped by operation of the EPO circuit. If people choose to identify more about, we know of many databases people might investigate. An average example of a situation when there's a need to remove capacity to equipment in a crisis situation is in the case of fire. An un-interruptible power by its very name ensures that when the building is isolated it'll continue to offer an result before the batteries are exhausted. As cables are destroyed by the first cause the continuing way to obtain power in these circumstances can result in additional fires. The EPO in this example is usually linked to the fire alarm panel and will are powered by the next and subsequent detection of fire within a defined area. One of many major difficulties with Emergency Power Off circuits is that whenever they're originally installed everybody understands the style and requirements to reset the circuit and restore the UPS system to normalcy function. Nevertheless as the years pass this knowledge is ignored and when the UPS technique suddenly stops for number reason normally it takes considerable time to identify the routine that's creating the problem. In effect, your un-interruptible energy supplies suddenly are no more uninterruptible when the EPO has been activated. You must be cautious where the EPO lies, to prevent accidental or malicious use. Undoubtedly each EPO must be administered and included b CCTV at minimum. When the service engineer is known as to site, they're looking for a failure within the UPS system, not generally the external circuits and re-establishing power to the load usually takes longer than expected. Further problems with EPO circuits can be caused during the initial installation of the UPS system where the artist, trying to make the operation of the EPO more secure may also join the under-voltage visits of circuit breakers supplying the UPS system. This can make the service engineer's process much more overwhelming as there are generally few circuit diagrams offered by the time of the event and considerable time can be lost in tracing the circuits to restore present to the load. Generally, regardless of any perceived problems with the UPS system at this time, the circuit to the maintenance bypass isn't available either because it has tripped due to the function of the EPO circuit so energy can still not be restored to the strain. To assist with quick restoration of supply to the load at the time of installation a laminated circuit diagram mounted on the UPS system demonstrating the circuit breakers providing the UPS system, the load and their locations. Furthermore the function of the EPO world should also be shown.
