Eaton 9130 UPS feedback

Yeah, that's about right. When I had one fail that was not set in power
saver mode, it just shut off intermittently before letting out the genie.
When I had one go out while it was in energy saver mode, it continued to
operate but put out a weak ~80Vrms with heavy distortion that caused
equipment damage.


Also in regards to OutBack - the Radian GS8048 is beautiful. I'd highly
recommend it. It is basically two inverter/charger  modules paralleled in
one chassis, each being 4Kw. I was playing with one and yoinked the control
cable to one module -- the power stayed on without incident and the MATE3
control unit (which is fun and Ethernet equipped) reported the error. If
you use the 8048 in half capacity it's redundant.

It gives 120/240 (l1, neutral, l2) out of the box and is pure sine. I
recommend getting the matching GS load center with it because it makes the
install super easy and includes the requisite breakers.
