    Do they just beep randomly? One of the 2 I have beeps randomly...sometimes it will do it like 3 times a day and then it won't do it for like a week. Is it going bad or something? :noes:

    I have one at work. I hate it. With mine, the red overload light comes on, as well. I have to power-cycle it a few times to get it to reset.

    Mine only beeps if the input voltage goes out of spec. Do you have the monitoring software installed and the cable connected? It should show you when and why its beeping.

    I haven't had mine connected since one of the batteries died. I'd almost forgotten how much it beeped at me.

    Mine only beeps when the power is out or battery is dying.
