Installation / Operating Manual
The MEP 002A/003A Autostarter has the following features which can be set with the DIP Switch on the Board:
DIP Switch 1: Regular Fuel / Aux Fuel
DIP Switch 2: Warm Up Time 1 min or 5 min (This is the time delay before the Relay "Power On" is activated. This Relay switches the Control Voltage to the 3 Phase Contactor "On" and connect the LOAD to the Generator)
DIP Switch 3: Cool Down 2 min, 6 min or 10 min (This is the time delay after the Relay "Power On" is disengaged, shutting off the Control Voltage to the 3 Phase Contactor removing the LOAD from the Generator and therefor allowing the unit to cool down)
DIP Switch 4: Pre Heat Time determined by ambient air temperature or fixed time (See table below)
DIP Switch 5: Pre Heat Time 15 sec or 45 sec [if DIP Switch 4 is set to fixed time] ( This setting is for the case that the Generator is operated in a controlled environment i.e. Building, Garage etc)
The Autostarter will automatically shut down and display a light indicator in the event of a Oil Pressure or Overheat situation, preventing the Generator Set from automatically restarting. The Autostarter can easily be reset, once the issues of leading to Low Oil Pressure or Overheat situation have been fixed.
The installation is not very difficult for the do it your self-er.
