Failure to provide adequate cooling space around the generator
may cause damage to the generator. This will reduce service life and
invalidate warranty.

Electrical Connection
Connect the generator to an appropriate 120 or 230 volt single-phase supply, refer to
the generator serial plate for input specification and ensure your supply matches the
requirements.
If the appropriate power cord is not supplied; a new plug, rated to at least 12 amps, can
be fitted by a qualified electrician.
If a substitute mains supply cord is used, ensure that it has adequate rating. Failure to
do so could cause damage to the generator

WARNING

This unit is classified as SAFETY CLASS 1. THIS UNIT MUST BE
EARTHED. Before connecting the unit to the mains supply, please
check the information on the serial plate. The mains supply must be of
the stated AC voltage and frequency.

Electrical requirements are 120 or 230VAC nominal +/- 10% depending on chosen
model. Extended periods at extremes can have a detrimental effect on the operation
and life of the generator.
If the equipment is used in a manner not specified by the manufacturer,
the protection provided by the equipment maybe impaired.
WARNING

The supply voltage will be displayed on the touch screen when the generator is
switched on. If the reading is 219V or less, then we would highly recommend fitting
