CONNECTION INFORMATION
Your new Pow'R Gard Generator has all interconnecting wiring terminated at a junction box. All
wiring will be clearly labeled as being load, remote start contacts and AC input terminals and are
to be connected as described below.
LOAD - These connections are rated and sized according to the KW of the generator.
Proper lead wire from these points to the automatic transfer switch (or load switching
device) is mandatory. See enclosed transfer switch information for corresponding
generator input terminals.
REMOTE START CONTACTS - This two wire connection, once connected to an
appropriate switch, will start the generator and perform as described in the remote
start/stop literature. These contacts are connected to the "Engine Start Contacts" of the
automatic transfer switch.
A Two Pole connection switch - normally open, closed to operate switch may also
be used to start the generator.
AC INPUT - These connections are for units with float type battery chargers or engine
block heater combinations. A constant supply of 120 volts AC (or as specified) is needed at
these terminals to power these devices.
Power is not required when the unit is in operation. Internal
Battery charging and radiant heat during operation eliminate the
need for these devices.
It is recommended that units utilizing an automatic transfer switch
with adjustable time delays have the initial adjustments made
prior to startup.
Factory recommendations are: allow 2 second delay on startup, 15 second delay on
emergency to normal.
STANDBY PERMANENT MOUNT SERIES GENERATOR
GENERATOR MOUNTING REQUIREMENTS
The generator set must be secured to a solid surface, which is non-combustible. A concrete floor is typical
of this application. Wood floors should be prepared in accordance with local and state requirements for the
load, heat and fluids that will be encountered with operation of this generator set.
This generator base shall be anchored to the concrete floor with minimum 3/8" anchors. We do not
suggest use of secondary isolators between the base and the floor surface, as durometers vary and may
affect the isolation properties of the standard generator mounts. Please note that it is not recommended by
the manufacturer that this generator be operated without being permanently mounted to a concrete slab or
similar application in accordance with your local and state regulations. We also recommend that the
generator be located 3 to 5 feet away from any permanent structure such as walls, bushes, etc. Check
with your local city hall for official requirements in your area.
The generator should be level for proper operation. When mounted, the generator should be properly
aligned and located in a well-ventilated place where the air temperature will not exceed 40OC or 104OF,
and should be accessible for cleaning. An open type generator should not be located where there are
abrasive or conductive dusts, corrosive gasses or fumes, or where excessive moisture, standing or
dripping water may be encountered. Limit dust and dirt accumulation and assure a rodent-proof
environment. A totally enclosed generator should be cleaned frequently to remove accumulated dust and
dirt , which may cause overheating.
A dimensional diagram to aid in mounting this model is included in your Bill of Materials / Technical
Diagrams Packet.
ENGINE COOLING REQUIREMENTS
A sufficient flow of clean, cool air is required to support combustion and to dissipate the heat produced in
the combustion process of an internal combustion engine. Approximately 60% of the heat value of fuel
consumed by an engine will be disbursed to the cooling air and to the exhaust.
All engines are either directly or indirectly cooled by air. The Air-Cooled Engine must transfer the excess
heat directly to the air surrounding it. The heated air must then be directed away from the engine so it will
not overheat.
If the engine is situated in an open installation there should not be a cooling problem, but when the engine
is installed in a building it is essential to provide:
1. Adequate control and evacuation of the heated cooling air.
2. An adequate and constant supply of incoming cooling air.
3. Adequate control and discharge of the engine's hot exhaust gases.
4. Adequate ventilation of the building when the engine shuts down.
ENGINE COOLING AIR
The air, which will cool the engine, must be brought in from outside the building. A forced airflow of
sufficient Cubic Feet per Minute (CFM) will prevent the incoming cooling air from mixing with the air inside
the building and eventually overheating and damaging the engine. To do this requires that an exhaust fan
of sufficient CFM be placed near the generator set to exhaust the heated cooling air and to also draw in
cool external air.
The cooling air intake should be located so that the cooling air will be brought in through this intake
opening, travel across the generator set, and then be evacuated from the building via the exhaust fan.
It is recommended that the cooling air intake have at least twice the cross-sectional opening area as the
heating cooling air exhaust fan located near the generator set. It is also recommended that the air intake
opening be located as close as possible to the same level as the top of the generator set.
The exhaust fan must NOT be located where it could easily
become blocked by leaves, snow, water, debris, etc…
The cooling air intake opening of the building should be of sufficient size so as to not interfere with the
cooling air intake airflow. It is recommended that the intake opening be no less than 3 times the cross
sectional area of the exhaust fan opening. It is also recommended that this opening be located on a
vertical plane so as to not easily become plugged with debris.
If utilizing some type of covering over the intake opening (louvers, expanded metal, screening, etc…) it is
very important that the combined total of the cross-sectional area openings be no less than 3 times the
cross-sectional area of the exhaust fan opening.
The heated cooling air coming off the engine must be directed, and evacuated out of the building. An
exhaust fan of sufficient CFM will need to be used to achieve this end result. Regarding the exhaust fan
size, remember that no heated cooling air must be allowed to accumulate inside the building. For aircooled units of 8-12KW we recommend an exhaust fan of 2000 CFM.
Location of the exhaust fan for the engine's heated cooling air is important. It must be located so that the
heated cooling air evacuated from the building not be allowed to re-circulate back into the cooling air
intake of the building or generator set. It is also important that it not be located where leaves, snow, water,
debris, etc could easily block it…
The exhaust fan should be located near the generator set on it's right or left side. If the unit has a side
mounted muffler it is preferable to put the exhaust fan on this side. You must not position the exhaust fan
so as to pull the incoming cooling air away from the cool air intake of either the engine or the generator
end.
The exhaust fan must be connected to the AC power terminals of the generator set so that when the
generator set starts it will immediately engage to provide immediate cooling air flow. The fan will then stay
engaged until the generator set stops.
It is important to keep any and all flammable objects or materials
away from this generator set, the remote muffler and it's attached
piping, or any other potential hot component of the installation.
When discharging the heated cooling air or the hot exhaust gases
out through the side of the building or compartment please
contact your local building inspector to find out what is
necessary for your application to prevent a fire from occurring.
You must clean and inspect both the exhaust fan and its louvers
along with the building's cooling air intake on a regular basis to
prevent reduction in the building's cooling air flow. This could
lead to overheating and a potential fire or explosion.
The direction of the discharged heating cooling air and the discharged hot exhaust gases is important as
they have the potential to create brown spots on the lawn. In extreme cases this extremely hot air could
cause dried grass or other debris to ignite.
Once the generator set is completely installed and fully operational, the following test should be performed
to help determine if the cooling airflow system you installed is performing adequately.
1. Place a thermometer as close to the cooling air intake of the engine's blower
housing as you can without allowing the thermometer to touch any material surface.
Secure the thermometer so it can't be drawn into the engine when it is running.
2. Place another thermometer outside of the building or compartment in the open air
(Keep the thermometer out of direct sunlight or any other heat sources).
3. Run the engine under maximum load for an extended period of time (at least one
hour).
4. The temperature difference between the two should not exceed 15 degrees F.
Please note that opening any door, window or other opening in
the building could upset the directed cooling airflow pattern
and result in a significant reduction in the cooling airflow
across the generator set. This could result in overheating, fire, or explosion.
To find out if this is true with your specific application run the above-mentioned test with all doors
and windows closed. Then repeat this test with different doors and windows open, and eventually
with all the windows and doors open. If any of these tests produce results that do not meet the
above-mentioned criteria, you must not run the generator set under the specific conditions that
created these unappreciable results.
HOT EXHAUST GASES
Exhaust gases contain carbon monoxide, a poisonous and toxic
Gas. Carbon Monoxide can cause illness or death. This generator
set must Only be installed by qualified professionals.
While it is important to supply the proper amount of clean air to the cylinder, it is equally important to
discharge the gases of combustion. If these gases remain in the cylinder, poor performance or eventual
engine damage may result. This condition results from excessive back- pressure, which could be caused
by any one or a combination of the following conditions:
1. Exhaust pipes too long or the diameter is too small.
2. Excessive number of sharp bends in the exhaust system.
3. Obstruction in the exhaust system.
Backpressure must not exceed 20" of water column.
Exhaust lines should be as short and straight as possible, since extended runs and elbows tend to clog
with carbon and resist the flow of gases. Each pipe fitting and elbow will hinder the exhaust flow.
If you are using a remote muffler it should be mounted as close to the engine as possible, since it will clog
with carbon if it's operating temperature is too low.
If you are using a remote muffler a flexible coupling of 12" or more must be installed between the exhaust
line and the manifold to absorb the engine's vibration.
However, a short, solid section of pipe between 6" and 8" long should be placed between the connection
of the manifold and the flexible coupling. This nipple will reduce the possibility of the hot gases burning up
the flexible coupling.
Water is one of the by-products of combustion and will be present in the exhaust piping or muffler. This
water must be kept from draining back into the engine. Slanting the horizontal section of the exhaust
system piping downward slightly, away from the engine can do this.
A water trap consisting of a tee extension with a drain cock should also be provided. This water trap
should be located between the flex coupling and the muffler, but as close to the engine as possible on a
horizontal section of the exhaust piping.
It is also recommended that an exhaust rain cap be used whenever it is possible that rain could get into
the system. This will help to prevent corrosion and damage to the exhaust system and engine.
The exhaust system is subject to the engine's vibration and it must therefore be solidly secured to prevent
unnecessary stress and the potential for breakage.
The engine's exhaust system is the hottest component of the installation and extreme care and
considerations must be given to it.
Whenever possible the remote muffler should be located outside of the building or compartment. As much of
the exhaust piping as possible should be located within the engine's heated cooling are exhaust flow. This
will help to prevent the accumulation of radiant exhaust heat inside the building.
In some cases, the idea of mounting the muffler outside the building conflicts with the idea of mounting the
muffler close to the engine to prevent carbon buildup. In these cases it is best to mount the muffler near
the engine and provide an air flow around the muffler to evacuate the muffler's radiant heat out of the
compartment or building. However, the exhaust outlet must be extended outside of the building.
Under no conditions shall the exhaust outlet be positioned so
that the exhaust gases would be directed towards any openings
or air entry routes (doors, windows, vents, etc...) of an occupied
building.
When discharging the hot exhaust gases out of the building do
not direct them towards anything that could catch fire or explode.
If the remote muffler cannot be located outside of the building or compartment, the next best option is to
locate it in the engine's heated cooling air exhaust flow.
It is extremely important that you do not allow the hot exhaust gases to re- circulate back into the engine's
cooling air intake.
It is important to keep any and all flammable objects or
materials away from the generator set, the remote muffler
and its attached piping, as well as any other potentially
hot component of the installation.
When discharging the heated cooling air or the hot exhaust
gases out through the side of the building please contact
your local building inspector to find out what is necessary
for your application to meet local building code requirements.
Keep all fuel and its associated piping away from all components
of the engine exhaust system.
Once the exhaust system is installed it should be inspected on
a regular basis to assure there are no toxic exhaust gas leaks.
In some areas this inspection may be provided by your local
public service.
BUILDING VENTILATION
As hot air rises you must provide some type of power ventilation at the highest possible point of the
building to permit the accumulating hot air to escape. This will help to prevent engine damage and it will
help to eliminate hot restart problems. An electric powered exhaust fan of sufficient size will satisfy this
requirement. This fan must connect to the generator set in a manner similar to the building's main heated
cooling air exhaust fan.
Generator End Cooling Requirements
The cooling air requirements for the generator end are very similar to the cooling air requirements for the
engine. These requirements are:
1. An adequate and constant supply of cooling air.
2. Adequate control and evacuation of the heated cooling air.
GENERATOR END COOLING AIR
If the above exhaust fan sizing recommendation is followed there will be an adequate supply of cooling air
for the generator end. Please remember to not position the exhaust fan so it will pull the incoming cooling
air away from the cooling air intake of either the engine or generator end.
It is important to keep any and all flammable objects or materials
away from the generator set, the remote muffler and its attached
piping, or any other potential hot component of the installation.
When discharging the heated cooling air or the hot exhaust gases
out through the side of the building please contact your local
building inspector to find out what is necessary for your application to meet
local building code requirements and to prevent fire from occurring.
You must clean and inspect both the exhaust fan and its louvers
along with the building's cooling air intake on a regular basis to
prevent reduction in the building's cooling air flow. This could lead to
overheating and a potential fire or explosion.
BUILDING VENTILATION
As hot air rises you must provide some type of power ventilation at the highest possible point of the
building to permit the accumulating hot air to escape. This will help to prevent engine damage and it will
help to eliminate hot restart problems. An electric powered exhaust fan of sufficient size will satisfy this
requirement. This fan must connect to the generator set in a manner similar to the building's main heated
cooling air exhaust fan.
EXHAUST REQUIREMENTS
While it is important to supply the proper amount of clean air to the cylinder, it is equally important to
discharge the gases of combustion. If these gases remain in the cylinder, the next cycle cannot burn the
fuel completely. This condition results from excessive backpressure that is caused by any one or
combination of these conditions:
a. Exhaust pipe diameter too small.
b. Exhaust pipe too long.
c. Excessive number of sharp bends in exhaust system.
d. Inadequate muffler.
e. Incorrect construction of muffler resulting in high resistance.
f. Obstruction in exhaust system.
Backpressure must not exceed 20" (water column) on naturally aspirated engines or 27" (water column)
on turbo-charged models.
EXHAUST PIPING
Exhaust lines should be as short and straight as possible, since extended runs and elbows tend to clog
with carbon and resist the flow of gases. Each pipefitting and elbow will hinder the exhaust flow.
The muffler should be as close to the engine as possible, since it will clog up with carbon if operating
temperature is too low.
NOTE: Never mount the muffler on the manifold.
A flexible coupling must be provided between the exhaust line and the manifold. However, a short, solid
section of pipe between 6" or 8" long should be placed between the connection of the manifold and the
flexible coupling,.
Water, one of the by-products of combustion, will be present in the exhaust piping or muffler. This water
must be kept from draining back into the engine. This can be done by slanting the horizontal section of the
exhaust pipe downward slightly, away from the engine. A water trap consisting of a tee extension with a
drain cock should be provided.

FIGURE 6-2: DOUBLE THIMBLE - WALL OUTLET DETAILS
EXHAUST PIPING THRU WALLS AND ROOFS
Always check local and state laws pertaining to hot gas pipes before making plans for running
exhaust piping thru walls or roofs. If the exhaust pipe must pass thru combustible walls or roofs,
use an exhaust thimble to prevent exhaust pipe heat from being transmitted to the combustible
material. Construction details of a typical thru wall double sleeve thimble is shown above —
thimbles are not available. They are usually fabricated at local sheet metal shops to the
specifications furnished by the installation engineer. The minimum outside diameter of a double
thimble (inner and outer sleeves) should be at least six inches greater than the diameter of the
exhaust pipe — with single sleeve thimbles, the O.D. should be at least 12 inches greater than
the diameter of exhaust pipe. The minimum thimble diameters for some common exhaust pipe
sizes are listed in the table below. The minimum thimble diameter for some common exhaust pipe
sizes are listed in the table below. The thimbles should be constructed so that they extend at
least 10" both ways from the surface of the wall or roof. Holes are provided at both ends to allow
cooling air to circulate thru the thimble. If screening is used on the outer end to keep birds,
rodents, etc., from entering the thimble, make sure the mesh is large enough so it doesn’t impair
air circulation through the thimble. If the exhaust pipe must exit thru a roof,

a rain shield must be included above the thimble as shown in Figure 6-3. The rain cap as shown
on the end of the exhaust pipe is recommended only in areas not subject to freezing
temperatures. In an area where freezing is common, extend the exhaust piping well beyond the
roof and use a gradual “U” bend at the end to direct the exhaust outlet downward which will keep
rain, snow, etc., out of the pipe. Some other important points relating to exhaust outlets are as
follows:
x
Keep exhaust outlet well away from windows, doors, passageways, air intake vents or areas where gases
could accumulate.
x
Keep exhaust piping well away from fuel lines, fuel tank filler caps and combustible materials.
CONTROL PANEL OPERATION
AND FUNCTION
A. MASTER CONTROL SWITCH - This switch controls the starting and stopping of the engine via the
engine control logic circuitry.
With this switch in the “Manual” mode, the engine will start and run immediately after a
10 - 20 second time delay.
CAUTION: Please note that once the engine has been told to start, the gen set
should be treated as though it is operational, even though the start
delay has not yet allowed the engine to crank.
With this switch in the “Automatic” mode, the engine can be started and stopped from a remote
contact. (Standard switch, transfer switch, etc.) There is a time delay, to cool down, of 60-90 seconds
when the unit is shut down from the remote contacts while the Master Control Switch is in the
“Automatic Mode.
With this switch in the “Off” position, the engine will immediately stop. The position must also be
utilized to clear fault shut-down conditions.
B. PANEL LIGHTS - By turning on the panel light switch, the panel lights will be energized and will
illuminate the control panel. The fuse next to the switch is to protect this circuit from damage due to
excessive current.
C. FIELD AND CONTROLLER FUSES - These fuses protect the internal workings of the generator set.
D. GAUGES - These gauges monitor some of the more critical operating parameters of the engine as
well as the run time of the generator set.
The Voltmeter displays the charging rate that is currently being produced by the engine’s alternator to
facilitate the charging of the battery. This gauge should normally be above 12.5V whenever the unit is
running. If you ever notice the gauge is reading below 12V while the engine is running please contact
the service department at Pow’R Gard Generator Corporation.
The Temperature Gauge monitors and displays the operating temperature of the engines coolant. The
point at which a fault shut-down will occur is 230OF.
The Oil Pressure Gauge displays and monitors the current operating pressure of the engine’s oil
system. The trip point at which a fault shutdown will occur is 15 PSI or below.
Fuel level is checked at the tank fill, inside the generator.
The Hour Meter accumulates and displays the total running time of the generator set.
E. VOLTAGE ADJUST - The rheostat allows the user to “fine tune” the generator set’s voltage output. It
is normally used to adjust output voltage after switching the output of the generator set to a different
voltage.
F. METERS - These meters monitor and display the current operating parameters of the generator set.
The Voltmeter monitors and displays the current operating AC output of the generator set.
The Hertz Meter monitors and displays the current operating frequency of the generator set.
The Ammeter monitors and displays the amount of current that is being delivered by the generator
set. This meter works in conjunction with the Ammeter Switch (Item G) in determining which output
leg to monitor.
G. AMMETER SWITCH - The switch allows the user to switch between L1, L2 and L3 to monitor the
current in each output leg to monitor.
H. PANEL LIGHT - By turning on the panel light switch, the panel lights ( Not pictured on diagram) will
be energized and will illuminate the control panel. They will also illuminate
when a fault condition or a warning condition develops.
I - SYSTEM FAULT INDICATORS - These lights will come on when a fault condition or a warning
condition develops.
The “Low Oil Pressure” light will come on when the engine’s oil pressure drops below 15 PSI. This
condition will trigger a fault shut-down and the unit will stop.
The “Over-crank” light will come on when the engine has failed to start after four attempted crank
cycles. Each crank cycle consists of a 12 second time period followed by a 12 second rest time period.
The “Over-speed” light will come on when the engine’s operating speed rises above it’s normal
operating parameters. This condition will trigger a fault shut-down and the engine will stop.
High Temperature light will come on when the engine’s operating temperature exceeds the safety setpoint.
OPERATION - PRE-START PROCEDURE
1. Fill system fuel tank with clean, fresh diesel fuel.
Wipe up any and all fuel spillage
2. Fill Engine crankcase to full mark with clean, fresh lubricating oil per attached
engine operating guide.
3. Radiator Coolant should be checked at the beginning of each day and filled in
compliance with the engine manufacturer's guidelines.
4. Secure the generator for operation.
Skid mounted - the power generating system should be mounted to a smooth, hard surface
suitable for supporting the system under all stress conditions.
Adequate clearance must be provided for access doors to fully open.
OPERATION - STARTING
1. Conduct ‘Pre-start Procedures.
2. Switch the generator set to the applicable voltage setting.
3. Connect the load(s) to the circuit breaker.
WARNING:
High voltage is present when the generator set is running.
4. Move the ‘Master Control Switch” to the appropriate position.
5. Adjust the voltage if necessary by turning the voltage adjustment knob located on
the control panel.
OPERATION
The Prime mover utilized in this power generating system is controlled via an engine control module.
Starting is accomplished by commanding the control to "start" the engine. This command can be given by a number
of controls;
The operator control mounted on the front panel.
The remote controls via the transfer switch or remote start terminal.
Initially, the system may be started and operated by placing the operation control in the "manual" position. To cease
operation, return the switch to the "off" position.
Clear unit of all loose objects and perform all "pre- start" procedures before operating generator system.
ENGINE CONTROL MODULE
The Engine Control Module (E.C.M.) is a microprocessor based module that monitors the control and safety inputs
and provides all the required START and STOP functions automatically.
The following front panel controls and instruments are wired into the microprocessor through the E.C.M. terminal
blocks:
1. RUN / OFF / AUTO SWITCH
A.
"RUN" - run position causes the generator set to start and run immediately.
B.
"AUTO" - auto position allows unit to be controlled via any remote single-pole "dry"
contact (transfer switch, etc.). Contact closure causes the unit to start and run, while
contact opening causes unit to shut down after a preset cool down period.
C.
"OFF" - unit operation is terminated.
2. LAMP TEST
A.
Push button energizes all alarm lights simultaneously. This feature is disabled with the
Run / stop / auto switch in the "stop" position and has no other effect on unit operation.
SAFETY INPUTS
1.
Low Oil Pressure Shut-down- (LOP)
Monitoring of oil pressure begins for a preset time after unit starts and remains in effect until unit
is shut down (except as noted in "loss of frequency input". The LOP signal is derived from an oil
pressure switch gauge mounted on the control panel.
2. High Temperature Shutdown (HT)
The engine temperature monitoring begins immediately with the start signal. However, if engine
temperature is excessive prior to start (i.e. heat soak after shutdown), the unit is permitted to
start. The High temperature condition is permitted to exist for up to 60 seconds after the unit is
running before shutdown when alarm occurs. If the excessive temperature condition is corrected
within that time period, the HT circuit reverts to normal monitoring. The HT signal is derived from
a monitoring device located on the prime mover.
3. Overspeed Adjustment (OS) - Over Frequency
Overspeed protection is provided by a frequency sensing network within the controller. The trip
point of the frequency network is adjustable via a rheostat located on the top of the controller at
the right hand side. Clockwise (CW) rotation increases the trip frequency and, thereby, raises the shutdown
speed.
CRANKING CONTROL
1. Overcrank Protection
This feature provides a preset second crank cycle. Failure of the engine to start by the end of the
crank period results in an "overcrank" shutdown and alarm indication.
2. Cranking Disconnect Adjustment (CDS Adjustment)
The cranking disconnect signal is obtained by a frequency network within the controller. The trip
point of the frequency network is not adjustable.
LOSS OF FREQUENCY
Internal protection against loss of frequency input to the cranking disconnect circuit is programmed in after the unit
has started normally. In the event the frequency goes to zero (engine runs out of fuel, frequency signal source fails,
etc.) the LOP shutdown circuit is bypassed and a 12-second wait period is initiated. If frequency returns within this
time period, LOP monitoring resumes and operation continues normally. If frequency has not returned at the end of
this time period, the engine oil pressure status is observed to determine whether the engine is actually running or
stopped. If the engine has stopped (i.e. air in fuel, etc.) the cranking cycle will begin in an effort to restart the engine.
If the engine has not stopped (loss of input signal, etc.) the unit is shut down with an "overcrank" indication and
alarm.
"Overcrank" indication can mean a loss of crank-disconnect signal during
the previous run period. Attempting to restart the engine with no crankdisconnect can destroy the starter motor, which can cause serious
personal injury.
This is of particular note since the tendency is to pursue only cranking and start related faults. The cranking
disconnect signal source is a key component in this system and must be checked out thoroughly whenever an
"overcrank" shutdown occurs.
The controller does not provide protection against loss of signal during
startup. A shutdown with alarm, due to any of the above conditions, will
prevent any subsequent operation of the generator set. The run-stop-auto
selector switch on the control panel must be momentarily placed in the
"stop" position to reset these functions.
If a dead battery is suspected, remove controller fuse, Replace with new
battery and attempt starting. Damage to engine control may result from jumpstarting.
TROUBLESHOOTING - GENERATOR
As with any machine, trouble may develop in electrical generators. It may be due to long service or neglect
of regular maintenance. Servicing, and checking. Should trouble develop, the following instructions will be
helpful in tracing the cause and making repairs.
SPEED DEVITIONS:
The generator speed should be maintained at rated nameplate speed. The frequency and voltage of the
generator output depends on speed. If the generator runs slower than rated speed, the voltage will drop
off.
