How to Assemble and Mount a Standalone Battery Backup System

Who Can Install a Standalone Backup Power System?

Upon taking delivery, all Medi-Products standalone systems require some assembly. However, once assembled standalone systems are fully plug and play. As such, they do not require a licensed electrician or contractor to complete any of the work required.

Much like installing cabinets in an exam room, a Medi-Products' Standalone system requires no specialized:

  • Tools
  • Skills
  • Licenses
  • or Permits

However, it is recommended that someone with experience— like a handyman, facilities manager, or maintenance staff—handle the installation.

The entire assembly and installation of a Standalone system should only take one to two hours at most. For facilities with on-site or in-network staff, the only cost to install a system is would be the cost of their staff's time. This allows you the flexibility to complete the project on your own schedule.

For facilities looking to outsource to a third party, past clients have received quotes in the $100-$300 range . We recommend contacting a local vendor for more specific pricing options before installation.

What Tools Are Needed to Assemble and Install a Backup Power System?

Every Medi-Product's backup generator contains the necessary hardware to assemble and mount it, including:

  • Self-drilling Screws
  • Drywall Anchors
  • Battery Cables
  • and Other Miscellaneous Hardware

This is all that is needed to mount a system to either the studs of your wall or directly into the drywall.

While you will need to supply your own tools to fully assemble and mount a standalone system, the only tools needed to complete the installation process are:

  • A Phillips-Head Screwdriver (to attach the battery covers and cabinet(s))
  • a Stud Finder (should you choose to mount to the studs),
  • and a Drill set

Once mounted to the wall, the full weight of a battery backup system is supported by the floor and feet. The wall it is mounted to only stabilizes the generator, bearing little of its weight.

How to Install and Assemble a Standalone System

Before installing a battery backup system and deciding on a final placement, keep in mind that every standalone system :
  • Comes standard with a 10-foot power cord
  • Receives input power on its left side
  • Has output power outlets on both sides
  • and Can be mounted and oriented in any direction due to their leak-proof batteries
Upon request, any of these aspects of a system can be custom configured during the production process to meet a client’s specific needs.
Installation of a Standalone system requires only eight steps:
  • Unpacking the Shipment
  • Removing the battery covers
  • Attaching the feet/extra battery cabinet(s)
  • Mounting the system
  • Installing the Batteries
  • Installing the Battery Cables
  • Reattaching the Battery Covers
Besides a brief test to ensure it's working properly, your system will be fully installed and ready to provide critical backup power for your facility.
