INSTALLATION INSTALLATION AND QUICK INSTALL GUIDE

CONNECTION OF THE AC CABLING

This is a Safety Class I product (supplied with a protective grounding terminal). Uninterrupted protective grounding must be provided at the AC input and/or output terminals and/or chassis grounding point located externally on the product.

The MultiPlus is provided with a ground relay that automatically connects the Neutral output to the chassis if no external AC supply is available. If an external AC supply is provided, the ground relay H will open before the input safety relay closes. This ensures the correct operation of an earth leakage circuit breaker that is connected to the output. An uninterrupted grounding can also be secured by means of the grounding wire of the AC input.

Otherwise the casing must be grounded.

The mains -input & output terminal connector can be found on the bottom of the MultiPlus. The mains cable must be connected to the connector with a three-wire cable via the terminal blocks found on the printed circuit board. Use a three-wire cable with a flexible core and a cross section of 2.5mm².

PROCEDURE

Proceed as follows to connect the AC cables:

• The AC input cable (from mains) can be connected to the terminal block “AC–in”. From left to right: “PE”

(earth), “N” (neutral) and “L” (phase). The AC input must be protected by a fuse or magnetic circuit breaker rated at 16A or less, and cable cross-section must be sized accordingly. If the input AC supply is rated at a lower value, the fuse or magnetic circuit breaker should be down sized accordingly

• The AC output cable (to control panel or pump 1) can be connected directly to the terminal block “ACout-1”. From left to right: “PE” (earth), “N” (neutral) and “L” (phase). With its PowerAssist feature the Multi can add up to 3kVA (that is 3000 / 230 = 13A) to the output during periods of peak power requirement.

Together with a maximum input current of 16A this means that the output can supply up to 16 + 13 = 29A.

An earth leakage circuit breaker and a fuse or circuit breaker rated to support the expected load must be included in series with the output, and cable cross-section must be sized accordingly. The maximum rating of the fuse or circuit breaker is 32A. Do not use AC output 2

QUICK INSTALL GUIDE

The steps in bold are indicated on the figure on page 8:

1. Screw the top bracket to a suitably strong substrate using the screws provided. Rawl plugs will be required for the screws for certain wall types (not supplied)

2. Place unit onto the bracket using the lugs to the rear of the unit. Screw the bottom of the unit to the wall

3. Unscrew and remove the front panel. Note: All cables will pass up though the bottom of the unit prior to connections being made

4. Wire AC IN with correctly rated mains cable. Add 3-pin mains plug or wire to a switched fused spare, both of which should be fitted with a 13amp fuse. Do not plug in or turn on at the spur at this stage

5. Wire AC OUT with correctly rated mains cable from either a Newton automatic pump, or from the ‘pump

2’ connection of the CP2 or CP9 control panel

6. Wire the temperature sensor cable into the T-SENSE terminal

7. Connect the black battery cable to the left Negative terminal

8. Connect the red battery cable to the right Positive terminal

9. Connect the black battery cable and the temperature sensor cable to the negative terminal on the battery

10. Connect the red battery cable to the positive terminal on the battery

11. The system will start running off the batteries

12. Plug the AC IN into mains power or switch on the fused spur

OPERATION AND MAINTENANCE

OPTIONAL CONNECTIONS, CONFIGURATION, AND BATTERY SELECTION OPERATION AND MAINTENANCE

OPERATION

On/Off/Charger Only Switch

For all operation as a battery back-up system the switch should be in the 'on' position, meaning the product is fully functional, powering the pumps with through power during times of normal power supply, and inverter power during a power outage. When mains power is not interrupted, the unit will charge the batteries also.

• Charge states (see LED Indications on page 7 also)

• Bulk - Heavy and fast charge for batteries that are very or fully depleted

• Absorption - Final top up charge at a lower charge rate than Bulk

• Float - Trickle charge for when batteries are fully charged to replace charge that is lost over time. This ensures that the batteries are always fully charged

• If the voltage at the “AC-in” terminal is not within specifications, during a power outage, for example, the inverter will switch on, continuing power to the pumping system until the battery(s) is depleted

• There is no need to switch the unit to “charger only” mode

TECHNICAL DATA

All technical data is available on page 2 of the Data Sheet.

TROUBLESHOOTING

The table on page 12 provides a quick reference of the more common faults. Disconnect the battery(s) and pumping systems before diagnosing the fault. Consult Newton Waterproofing Systems if the fault cannot be resolved.

Problem

Inverter operation not initiated when switched on

The charger is not functioning.

Cause

The battery voltage is excessively high or too low. No voltage on DC connection.

Circuit breaker or fuse in the AC-in input is open as a result of overload.

The battery fuse has blown.

Poor battery connection

Solution

Ensure that the battery voltage is within the correct range.

Remove overload or short circuit on

AC-out-1 or AC-out-2, and reset fuse/breaker.

Replace the battery fuse.

Check the battery connections The battery is not completely charged

The charger does not operate.

“Bulk” LED flashes and

“Mains on” LED illuminates.

The battery is overcharged.
