9 Connect the Ground (earth) terminal to a ground source... In order to prevent electrical shock, the generator must be grounded when using an elec- trical device with a ground plug...

Page 10

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...
