    I have a Symmetra LX UPS currently with 8kva (expandable to 16Kva) installed. Can i just add more modules to the unit without putting it into bypass? I'm NOT replacing any modules, just adding more to the UPS. My boss tells me i have to put the unit into bypass, but from what i've research i should be able to slide the new power modules into the unit and it will then recognize them and do what it needs to do. If i was replacing a power module i know i have to be careful of the load when i pull a power module out of the unit.

    Thanks Michael.

    Hi Michael,


    The Symmetra LX power module has a switch to disengage the module so it should never be active when withdrawn or installed.

    This will allow the Symmetra LX power module to be classed as “Hot Swappable”.


    There are some FAQs that are available to assist in guiding you through the process.
