Reply to post: UPS plugged into itself

The silence of the racks is deafening, production gear has gone dark – so which wire do we cut?

UPS plugged into itself

We received two RTC UPS'es (3kVa) which we need to set up with new equipment that was going to be shipped out to a remote site.

One UPS beeped to indicate that it was unplugged from the power, then a click and then silence as equipment stopped working.

Some doofus plugged the UPS back into itself, causing it to trip.

A quick Gibbs slap to the back of the head of the offender, a >clickety<>click< and an unplugging later everything was fine.
