AE00091

CONNECTION

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 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.

AE00086

EXTENSION CORD NOTES 9 When using an extension cord, its total length

should not exceed 60 meters for cross section of 1.5 mm square and 100 meters for cross section of 2.5 mm square.

9 This extension cord should be protected by a tough flexible rubber sheath (IEC 245) or the equivalent to withstand mechanical stresses.

Overload indicator light 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. The electronic breaker will then activate, 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.

When the overload indicator light comes on and power generation stops, proceed as follows: 1. Turn off any connected electric devices and stop

the engine. 2. Reduce the total wattage of connected electric

devices within the application range. 3. Check for blockages in the cooling air inlet and

around the control unit. If any blockages are found, remove.

4. After checking, restart the engine.

NOTE: 9 The generator AC output automatically resets

when the engine is stopped and then restarted. 9 The overload indicator light may come on for a few

seconds at first when using electric devices that require a large starting current, such as a com- pressor or a submergible pump. However, this is not a malfunction.
