Before testing the generating set, read the generating setInstallation Manual, and this Fault Finding Manual, and becomefamiliar with it and the equipment.
SAFE AND EFFICIENT OPERATION CAN ONLY BEACHIEVED IF THE EQUIPMENT IS CORRECTLYINSTALLED, OPERATED AND MAINTAINED.
Many accidents occur because of a failure to follow fundamentalrules and precautions.
ELECTRICAL SHOCK CAN CAUSE SEVEREPERSONAL INJURY OR DEATH.
Ensure installation meets all applicable safety and localelectrical codes. Have all installations performed by qualifiedInstallation technicians.
Do not operate the generator with protective covers, accesscovers or terminal box covers removed.
Disable engine starting circuits before carrying outmaintenance.
Disable closing circuits and/or place warning notices on anycircuit breakers normally used for connection to the mains or other generators, to avoid accidental closure.Observe all IMPORTANT, CAUTION, WARNING, and DANGERnotices, defined as:
Important ! Important refers to hazard or unsafe methodor practice, which can result in productdamage or related equipment damage.Caution ! Caution refers to hazard or unsafe method orpractice, which can result in product damageor personal injury.Warning refers to a hazard or unsafe methodor practice, which CAN result in severepersonal injury or possible death.Danger refers to immediate hazards, whichWILL result in severe personal injury ordeath.
Due to our policy of continuous improvement, details in this manual which werecorrect at time of printing, may now be due for amendment. Information includedmust therefore not be regarded as binding.
TESTING "LIVE" EQUIPMENT
It is essential that all test instruments areregularly checked for safety, and anyconnection leads, probes, or clips, arechecked to ensure that they are suitable forthe voltage levels being tested.Never attempt to test a "LIVE" generatorunless there is another competent personpresent who can switch off the power supplyor shut down the engine in an emergency.Never expose "LIVE" connections unless youhave created a safe working area around you.Make sure you have made all other persons inthe immediate area fully aware of what youare doing.
