|Preliminary Actions||Upon arrival, found UPS in Maintenance Bypass Mode. Restart attempts were unsuccessful.|
|Resolution||Replacement components had to be ordered to address possibly damaged components.|
|Root Cause||Customer had the local Fire Department on site performing testing. The Fire Panel is tied to the UPS via shunt trip, and upon testing, the UPS was deactivated.
