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 sup- ply has failed or has been turned off for line repair... Backfeeding can electrocute or injure line mainte- nance personnel... Also, generator and building electrical system damage can occur when normal operating power returns if unit is used without an isolation switch...

DC protector The DC protector turns off 2 automatically when elec- tric device being connected to the generator is operat- ing and current above the rated flows... To use this equip- ment again, turn on the DC protector by pressing its button to ON 1...

Page 14

Reduce the load of the connected electric device below the specified rated output of the generator if the DC protector turns off... If the DC protector turns off again, stop using the device immediately and consult a Yamaha dealer...

Page 15

Overload indicator light (Red) The overload indicator light 1 comes on when an over- load of a connected electrical device is detected, the inverter control unit overheats, or the AC output voltage rises... Then, the AC protector will trip, stopping power generation in order to protect the generator and any connected electric devices... The AC pilot light (Green) will go off and the overload indicator light (Red) will stay on, but the engine will not stop running...
