1. SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
1.1.
ELECTRICAL SAFETY
 WARNING! It is the responsibility of the owner and the operator to read, understand and comply with the following:
You must check all electrical products, before use, to ensure that they are safe. You must inspect power cables, plugs, sockets and any other
connectors for wear or damage. You must ensure that the risk of electric shock is minimised by the installation of appropriate safety devices.
A Residual Current Circuit Breaker (RCCB) should be incorporated in the main distribution board. We also recommend that a Residual Current
Device (RCD) is used. It is particularly important to use an RCD with portable products that are plugged into a supply which is not protected
by an RCCB. If in any doubt consult a qualified electrician. You may obtain a Residual Current Device by contacting your Sealey dealer.
You must also read and understand the following instructions concerning electrical safety.
1.1.1. The Electricity at Work Act 1989 requires that all portable electrical appliances, if used on business premises, are tested by a
qualified electrician, using a Portable Appliance Tester (PAT), at least once a year.
1.1.2. The Health & Safety at Work Act 1974 makes owners of electrical appliances responsible for the safe
condition of those appliances and the safety of the appliance operators.
If in any doubt about electrical safety, contact a qualified electrician.
1.1.3. Ensure that the insulation on all cables and on the appliance is safe before connecting it to the
power supply. See 1.1.1. and 1.1.2. and use a Portable Appliance Tester.
1.1.4. Ensure that cables are always protected against short circuit and overload.
1.1.5. Regularly inspect power supply leads and plugs for wear and damage and power connections to
ensure that none is loose or damaged.
1.1.6. Important: Ensure that the voltage marked on the appliance matches the power supply
to be used and that the plug is fitted with the correct fuse - see fuse rating at right.
1.1.7. DO NOT pull or carry the appliance by the power cable.
1.1.8. DO NOT pull the plug from the socket by the cable.
1.1.9. DO NOT use worn or damaged cables, plugs or connectors. Immediately have any faulty
item repaired or replaced by a qualified electrician.
1.1.10. This product requires an electrical supply in excess of 13 amps, and NO plug is fitted. You must
therefore contact a qualified electrician to ensure that a 30 amp supply is available. We recommend
that you discuss the installation of a industrial round pin plug and socket with your electrician.
Ensure that the unit is correctly earthed via a three-pin plug, as shown.
a) Connect the green/yellow earth wire to the earth terminal
b) Connect the brown live wire to live terminal 'l'.
c) Connect the blue neutral wire to the neutral terminal, 'n' or unmarked.
d) After wiring, check that there are no bare wires, that all wires have been correctly connected,
that the external insulation extends beyond the cable restraint and that the restraint is tight.
1.1.11. If an extension reel is used it should be fully unwound before connection. A reel with an RCD
fitted is preferred since any appliance plugged into it will be protected. The cable core section
is important and should be at least 1.5mm², but to be absolutely sure that the capacity of the reel
is suitable for this product and for others which may be used in the other output sockets, we
recommend the use of 2.5mm² section cable.
NOTE: If the unit is to be consistently used to start larger car engines and commercial vehicles it
is recommended that the unit should be connected to a 3-phase supply - contact a qualified
electrician for further advice.

instructions and those published by the battery manufacturer and the maker of any equipment you intend to use in the vicinity of
the battery. Remember to review warning marks on all products and on engines.
1.2.
PERSONAL PRECAUTIONS
When working with or near a lead-acid battery ensure there is another person within hearing range
and close enough to come to your aid, should a problem arise.
Wear safety eye protection and protective clothing. Avoid touching eyes while working near battery.
Have fresh water and soap nearby in case battery acid contacts skin, clothing, or eyes.
Wash immediately with soap and water if battery acid contacts skin or clothing. If acid enters eye, flush eye immediately with cool,
clean running water for at least 15 minutes and seek immediate medical attention.
Remove personal metallic items such as rings, bracelets, necklaces and watches. A lead-acid battery can produce a short-circuit
current high enough to weld a ring or the like to metal, which may cause severe burns.
Ensure hands and clothing, including belts, are clear of fan blades and other moving or hot parts of the engine. Remove ties and contain long hair.
DO NOT smoke or allow a spark or flame in the vicinity of the battery or the engine.
1.3.
GENERAL SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
Familiarise yourself with the applications, limitations and potential hazards relating to the starter/charger. Also refer to the vehicle
manufacturer's handbook. IF IN ANY DOUBT CONSULT A QUALIFIED ELECTRICIAN.
Ensure the starter/charger is in good order and condition before use. If in any doubt, do not use the unit and contact an electrician.
Only use genuine parts. To use unapproved parts may be dangerous and will invalidate your warranty.
Use the starter/charger in the horizontal position only and ensure it stands on a stable surface which will adequately support the weight.
