Electrical Characteristics

Output Power Factor

All Endeavor models up to 2000VA come with a 0.8 output power factor that increases the watt capacity of the units. Offering larger capacities in smaller UPS VA sizes reduces the overall cost of the UPS solution for a specific load requirement. The 3000VA model comes with a 0.7 power factor that provides 2,100 watts capacity in a 3.5” (2U) rack space.

Output Voltage

All units in the Endeavor Series produce an electrical signal that does not vary from nominal voltage by more than 2%. Tightly regulating the output voltage increases the quality of power to connected equipment adding to its life expectancy, which lowers the total cost of ownership to users.

Total Harmonic Distortion (THD)

THD is the distortion of a normal AC electrical signal commonly caused on UPS products when connected loads near the capacity of the units. This distortion can create internal heat build-up on sensitive equipment not designed to allow for these altered AC signals. The Endeavor Series maintains an output AC signal, at all times and with all loads, within 2% of a true sinewave.

Output Receptacle Control

The ability to extend the runtime of critical devices during an extended blackout is handled through the Endeavor’s load shedding function. Each model in the Endeavor Series comes with two independently-circuited receptacle segments. Through the use of Minuteman’s SentryPlus software or communication with the UPS through an Ethernet/SNMP connection, users can either turn on, off, or reset each segment independently of the other. By reducing the load amount on the UPS, the runtime of critical devices on the UPS battery can be extended.


Communication Features

Simultaneous RS232, USB and Ethernet/SNMP Communications

The Endeavor Series provides users with the ability to communicate with the UPS simultaneously through three separate protocols: RS232, USB and SNMP Users can now directly connect, and manage, the UPS from multiple stand-alone, or networked, computers. By including concurrent Ethernet communications, (SNMP or direct IP address), the Endeavor Series can provide detailed monitoring and management to many various environments.


Other Features

RoHS Compliancy: Recognizing the benefit of being environmentally conscious, Para Systems developed the Endeavor Series to be compliant with the European Economic Unions directive on the reduction of hazardous substances (RoHS), in electronic equipment.

Manual and Automatic Self-Testing: The Endeavor Series is designed to proactively notify users of any impending faults or failures with the UPS. This allows for preemptive repair or replacement of components or batteries preventing unexpected downtime caused by the UPS.

Dedicated EPO Port: This direct access port allows users to perform an immediate remote shutdown of the UPS in cases of emergency or when access to the UPS is restricted or inconvenient.


Battery Characteristics

Extended Runtime Capability

All models in the Endeavor Series come standard with internal batteries. To protect critical devices through extended blackouts, the Endeavor Series utilizes external battery packs that can be daisy-chained in unlimited quantities to provide a virtual unlimited amount of runtime.

Fast Battery Recharge

With independent chargers in each battery pack offered for the Endeavor Series, the maximum recharge time for depleted batteries is 4-8 hours, no matter how many battery packs are installed on a UPS. Without these chargers, if more than one battery pack is used battery charging could take more than an entire day.

Battery Technology

All Endeavor units and battery packs use valve-regulated lead-acid batteries (VRLA). All are safe for any type of freight transport: air, sea or ground. For added protection, all Endeavor UPS models ship with these batteries disconnected. A “Quick Installation Guide” is included in each Endeavor box to detail how to connect the batteries before turning the units on.

Hot-Swappable Batteries

All models in the Endeavor line offer battery replacement, through the front panel of the UPS, without having to remove the UPS from service. Connected loads are protected from voltage anomalies and spikes and surges while the batteries are being replaced.

Battery Pack Models

Because each UPS has different battery requirements to support its maximum load capacity, the Endeavor Series uses battery packs sized to match each UPS model:

External battery packs
  • EDBP24XL external battery pack for ED1000RM(T)2U
  • EDBP48XL external battery pack for ED1500RM(T)2U and ED2000RM(T)2U
  • BP72RTXL external battery pack for ED3000RM(T)2U
  • BP24RTEXL high-capacity external battery pack for ED1000RM(T)2U
  • BP48RTEXL high-capacity external battery pack for ED1500RM(T)2U and ED2000RM(T)2U
  • BP72RTEXL high-capacity external battery pack for ED3000RM(T)2U

Optional mounting brackets


Power management via SNMP Communications

Optional SNMP-NV6 and SNMP-NET cards allow easy management of UPS without the need of a connected PC or server


Extended Warranty Plans

5 Full Years of Trouble-free Service - Guaranteed

Minuteman UPSs already ship with the best warranty in the business at 3 years, including non-prorated battery coverage on most products.

Two levels of Extended Warranty Plans are also available on most UPS product lines to provide an additional 2 years of coverage. These plans ensure a full 5 years of trouble-free ownership.
