Be very careful when connecting high-voltage
wires labeled N1 and N2 and low-voltage wires
labeled 23 and 194 in both the generator wiring
panel and the transfer switch wiring panel. The
control board will be damaged if these wires are
not connected correctly.
In order for the generator battery charger function
to work, it is necessary to provide a 120VAC util-
ity source connection to the generator wiring panel
LINE, NEUTRAL and GND terminals (see Figure 4).
ENGINEERED TRANSFER SWITCH
(2-WIRE START GTS MODE)
When required, the generator can be installed with
an engineered W-type transfer switch which controls
utility voltage sensing, weekly exercising and load
When Position 2 of the eight-position DIP switch,
which is located on the generator circuit board (see
Figures 1 and 2), is in the ON position then utility
voltage sensing, weekly exercising and load transfer-
ring is under the control of the engineered W-type
transfer switch (GTS Mode).

For the W-type transfer switch to control utility volt-
age sensing, weekly exercising and load transferring,
suitable wiring must also be connected from the
transfer switch 178 and 183, 2-wire start terminals
to the corresponding generator 178 and 183 2-wire
start terminals. Recommended wire gauge sizes for
the 2-wire start wiring depend on the length of the
wire (see wiring length chart).
