2-1. G E N E R AL
a. This chapter contains instructions for opera-
tion, power and control connections. Location and
function of controls and indicators and safety precau-
tions are also provided.
b. Refer to table 3-2 and perform Before Opera-
tion Preventive Maintenance Checks and Services
before operating the Generator Set.
c. Before operating set, check for proper installa-
tion. See Chapter 4, Section I.
d. Table 2-1 describes the Generator Set controls
and instruments (see figure 2-3).
All personnel involved in the operation or
maintenance of the Generator Set should
become thoroughly familiar with the safe-
ty precautions prior to performing opera-
tion or maintenance procedures.
Prior to connection of load cables, make
sure all switches are in OFF or OPEN posi-
tion, the Generator Set is not operating.
Inspect the Generator Set ground connec-
tion prior to starting the unit. Electrical
defects in load lines or load equipment can
cause death by electrocution when contact
is made with an ungrounded system.
Do not smoke or carry an open flame when
servicing the batteries or fuel tank. Exer-
cise extreme care to prevent electrical arc-
ing in the area of the batteries.
Battery electrolyte contains sulfuric acid
and can cause severe burns. Handle it with
care. If the electrolyte comes in contact
with the body, eyes, or clothing, rinse im-
mediately with clean water. Avoid spilling
electrolyte on painted surfaces. Do not
work alone or smoke when servicing
Do not operate Generator Set in an enclos-
ed area unless the exhaust gases are piped
to the outside. Continued breathing of ex-
haust fumes is dangerous.
Stay clear of all exposed electrical ter-
minals when Generator Set is operating.
R e m o v e a l l r i n g s , w a t c h e s a n d o t h er
jewelry when performing maintenance on
this equipment. Loose fitting clothing
should be secured to prevent it from
catching in moving parts.
2-2. POWER CONNECTIONS.

OPERATING, ALL SWITCHES ARE IN
THE OFF OR OPEN POSITION AND
THE SET IS GROUNDED.
To connect load cables to Generator Set, attach load
leads to terminals located in output control box as re-
quired. See figure 2-1.
2-3. EQUIPMENT RECONNECTION.
When selecting position 120V, 1 PH unit is
in 2 wire configuration. A situation
can/may exist in allowing a double fault to
occur. To eliminate this possibility the
reconnection switch will be rewired by
using a AWG #4 wire jumper between ter-
minals #LO and #6 of section 9.
Before operating unit, be certain voltage and frequen-
cy rating of the load matches that of the Generator
Set. If the output voltage of the Generator Set must
be changed to match a particular load, rotate recon-
nection switch located on Reconnection Panel to
desired output connections. See figure 2-2.
2-4. STARTING GENERATOR SET (SEE
Do not operate in excess of 200 hours con.
tinuous with JP-4. MILJ-5624 bulk fuel.
Do not use either to aid in starting unit.
Hearing protection is required.
