1.



Unpack the generator from the shipping crate and position on a flat surface, in
desired area.

2.

First remove the compressor transit brackets.
These can be accessed by removing the generator right side panel. Locate the eight
screws shown above.
Page 5

3.

00-5483

Using a 2.5mm Hex Key 00-5483 remove each screw by turning anti clockwise.
An earth lead is connected to the inside of the panel. This can be disconnected by
pulling it off the spade connector on the panel.

4.

The side panel can now be removed, an earth lead is connected to the inside of the
panel. This can be disconnected by pulling it off the spade connector on the panel.

Page 6

5.

Remove the four thumb-screws and shake-proof washers from the underside of the
compressor compartment. Then lift each transit bracket up until the locating pin an
threaded stud are clear of the mounting plate and the compartment floor.
Do not discard the transit brackets or washers as these will be needed again if the
unit is to be transported from its current location.

6.

02-4600

Select the ¼”- 6mm Push Fit Fitting 02-4600 and attach to the Drain port at the rear
of the generator.

Page 7

7.

00-1282

Connect the 6mm PE Tubing 00-1282 to the ¼”- 6mm Push Fit Fitting 02-4600.
Fit the other end of the tubing to a suitable drain connection or container. The
container MUST NOT have an airtight seal as water and air will be expelled
periodically under pressure.

8.

04-1024/04-1025/04-1026

Select the appropriate mains cable from the fittings kit and plug the IEC 60320/C19
cable into the mains input at the rear of the generator.

Plug the mains cable into the corresponding 230VAC 50/60Hz single phase power
supply.
CAUTION ensure the correct cable has been selected for your electrical supply

10.

Switch the generator ON using the switch on the front panel.

Page 9

11.

Check the Generators internal voltmeter. This will measure and display the mains
voltage that is being supplied to the generator. Note the displayed voltage. If the
voltage is 219V or less, we would highly reccomend fitting a transformer. This can be
ordered directly from Peak. 06-3200 Dual Tap Transformer 200-230V

12.

Switch the generator OFF using the switch on the front panel.

17.

30
minutes

Leave the generator switched on for a period of 30 minutes to purge the system.

18.

The pressure gauge on the front panel will gradually increase to the factory set pressure.

Page 13

19.

The purge is now complete, switch the generator OFF using the switch on the front
panel. Once the pressure gauge reads 0, the installation can continue.

20.

02-4421

Depending on the size of the inlet on the instrument, select either the ¼”
Compression Fitting 02-4421 or the remaining ¼”- 6mm Push Fit Fitting 02-4600
and attach this to the Nitrogen port.

CONGRATULATIONS

General Notes

Electrical requirements are 230VAC nominal +/- 10% depending on chosen
model. However, running continuously at voltages outwith this is not recommended.
Extended periods at extremes can have a detrimental effect on the operation and life
of the Generator.
1.


The Teflon tube supplied in the fittings kit is to allow the generator to be installed
adjacent to the instrument it is supplying. If the generator is to be installed further
away from the instrument then attention needs to be paid to pressure drops that could
occur. The maximum distance away from the instrument the generator can be placed
still using 6mm (4mm internal diameter) or ¼” (3/16” internal diameter) tubing is 10m.
For further information relating to tubing lengths please refer to the user manual.

2.


Images are representative of the installation process and may differ slightly from
your generator.
3.

Please familiarise yourself with the full User Manual available at www.peakscientific.
com/downloads. This includes all other technical specifications, operating
instructions, service requirements, contact details and trouble shooting.
