Page 11

w Before the generator can be connected to a build- ings electrical system, a licensed electrician must install an isolation (transfer) switch in the build- ings main fuse box... The switch is the connection point for generator power and allows selection of generator or main line power to the building... This will prevent the generator from charging the main power line (backfeeding) when the main power supply has failed or has been turned off for line repair... Backfeeding can electrocute or injure line maintenance personnel... Also, generator and build- ing electrical system damage can occur when nor- mal operating power returns if unit is used without an isolation switch...

NOTE: Some precision equipment is voltage sensitive and may require a more uniform voltage supply than portable generators provide...
