SAVE THESE INSTRUCTIONS – The manufacturer suggests that these rules for safe
operation be copied and posted in potential hazard areas. Safety should be stressed to all
operators and potential operators of this equipment.
Study these SAFETY RULES carefully before installing, operating, or servicing this equipment. Become
familiar with this manual and all literature pertaining to the generator set and related equipment. This
equipment can operate safely, efficiently, and reliably
only if it is properly installed, operated, and maintained. Many accidents are caused by failing to follow
simple and fundamental rules or precautions.
The manufacturer cannot anticipate every possible
circumstance that might involve a hazard. The warnings in this manual, and on tags and decals affixed
to the equipment, are, therefore, not all-inclusive. If
using a procedure, work method, or operating technique the manufacturer does not specifically recommend, ensure that it is safe for others. Also make sure
the procedure, work method, or operating technique
utilized does not render the equipment unsafe.
 GENERAL HAZARDS 
• For safety reasons, the manufacturer recommends
that this equipment be installed and serviced by
an Authorized Service Dealer or other qualified
electrician or installation technician who is familiar with applicable codes, standards, and regulations. The operator also must comply with all such
codes, standards, and regulations.
• When working on this equipment, remain alert
at all times. Never work on the equipment when
physically or mentally fatigued.
• Inspect the equipment regularly, and promptly
repair or replace all worn, damaged or defective
parts, using only factory-approved parts.
• Before performing any maintenance on the generator or any related equipment, disconnect the
generator’s battery cables and remove panel fuse
to prevent accidental startup. Disconnect the cable
from the battery post, indicated by a NEGATIVE,
NEG, or (–) first. Reconnect that cable last.
 ELECTRICAL HAZARDS 
• Generators produce dangerous electrical voltages
and can cause fatal electrical shock. Avoid contact
with bare wires, terminals, connections, etc., while
the generator and related equipment are running.
Ensure all appropriate covers, guards, and barriers are in place before operating the equipment.
If working around an operating unit, stand on an
insulated, dry surface to reduce potential shock
hazards.

• Do not handle any kind of electrical device while
standing in water, while barefoot, or while hands or
feet are wet. DANGEROUS ELECTRICAL SHOCK
MAY RESULT.
• If people must stand on metal or concrete while
installing, operating, servicing, adjusting, or repairing this equipment, place insulative mats over a
dry wooden platform. Work on the equipment only
while standing on such insulative mats.
• Wire gauge sizes of electrical wiring, cables, and
cord sets must be adequate to handle the maximum electrical current (amperage) to which they
will be subjected to.
• Before installing or servicing this equipment, make
sure that all power voltage supplies are positively
turned off at their source. Failure to do so will result
in hazardous and possibly fatal electrical shock.
• When installed with an automatic transfer switch,
the generator may crank and start anytime, without warning. To prevent injuries caused by sudden
start-up, disable the generator’s automatic start
circuit before working on, or around, the unit.
Then, place a “Do Not Operate” tag on the generator control panel and on the transfer switch.
• In case of an accident caused by electric shock,
immediately shut down the source of electrical
power. If this is not possible, attempt to free the
victim from the live conductor. AVOID DIRECT
CONTACT WITH THE VICTIM. Use a nonconducting implement, such as, a rope or board, to free
the victim from the live conductor. If the victim
is unconscious, apply first aid and get immediate
medical help.
• Never wear jewelry when working on this equipment. Jewelry can conduct electricity, resulting in
electric shock, or may get caught in moving components, causing injury.
 FIRE HAZARDS 
• For fire safety, the generator and related equipment must be installed and maintained properly.
Installation always must comply with applicable
codes, standards, laws, and regulations. Adhere
strictly to local, state, and national electrical
and building codes. Comply with regulations the
Occupational Safety and Health Administration
(OSHA) has established. Also, ensure that the
equipment is installed in accordance with the
manufacturer’s instructions and recommendations. Following proper installation, do nothing
that might alter a safe installation and render the
unit in noncompliance with the aforementioned
codes, standards, laws, and regulations.

General Information
R-panel Technical Manual
INTRODUCTION
The R-200B Controller incorporates the generator
control circuitry, and the interface circuitry to an
external governor driver. Unlike other versions of the
R-series controller, the R-200B requires an external
ignition coil driver module. The module is designed
to provide independent ignition coil drive for each
cylinder, regardless of engine size. See the generator
manual for details.
The R-200B Controller can control a:
• 4-cylinder, 2.4L, 1800 rpm or 3600 rpm engine
• 6-cylinder, 4.2L, 1800 rpm engine
The R-200B controller will monitor the utility voltage
to determine if stand-by power is required. Should
the utility voltage fail, the unit will start and run,
detaching from the utility and supplying the customer
load from the generator.
These generators are field configurable for either LP
vapor or Natural Gas (NG). See the generator manual
for details.
The output frequency of the generator can be set to
either 50 Hz or 60 Hz. This is accomplished via a DIP
switch on the controller PCB. The generator output
rating is lower for 50 Hz. The setting should be set
and verified at installation and not changed after that
time.

GENERATOR OPERATION
The R-200B controller monitors the front panel
switch position and reads the DIP switch position settings when the control board is initially powered-up.
With the switch In the OFF position, the controller
exercise timer will be keeping time; the controller will
also be monitoring the battery voltage and low fuel
pressure sensor.
While starting and running the engine, the controller
will monitor the engine condition and shut the engine
down on;
• Over Crank
• Over Speed
• High Coolant Temperature
• Low Coolant Level
• Low Oil Pressure
• Engine Speed Signal Loss/RPM Sensor Loss (the
overspeed LED flashes to indicate this fault)
• Dead Battery (battery voltage < 6V during cranking
or 8V when the generator is running)
• Ignition Module Fault
UTILITY FAILURE
When the utility fails, a 15 second timer will start.
If the utility is still gone when the timer expires the
engine will crank and start. Once started a 10 second engine warm-up timer will be initiated. When
the warm-up timer expires, the R-200B controller
will transfer the load to the generator (ATS Mode).
The transfer of load when the generator is running is
dependent upon the operating conditions as follows:
‹ MANUAL MODE
When utility is present the unit will start and run, but
not transfer to standby. If running in standby (utility
is lost) and utility returns above 80% of nominal for
> 15 seconds, the unit will transfer to Utility and
continue to run until the switch is turned OFF. If the
utility drops below 60% of nominal for > 15 seconds
the unit will transfer to standby.
‹ AUTO MODE
If utility is present the unit will not run or transfer.
If the utility voltage drops below 60% of nominal for
> 15 seconds, the unit will start, run and transfer to
standby (after the 10 second warm-up). When utility
returns and voltage is > 80% of nominal for > 15
seconds, the unit will transfer to utility, and will stop
the engine after a one minute cool-down.
In the MANUAL position the controller will start and
run the generator.
‹ EXERCISE MODE
In the AUTO position the controller will go into a
"standby" mode, where the controller will monitor
the utility voltage and the exercise timer, and determine if the generator needs to be started and the load
transferred.
The unit will not exercise if the generator is already
running (in manual or auto mode). The generator
will only transfer if the utility fails during the exercise period for >15 seconds, and the switch is in the
AUTO mode above.
Battery voltage is continuously monitored and a
warning LED is lit if the battery voltage drops below
approximately 12.2 volts for longer than one (1) minute. The LED will turn off when the battery voltage
goes back above approximately 12.5 volts.
If the battery voltage drops below 6V during cranking, or 8V when the generator is running, the low
battery LED will stay lit.
UTILITY RESTORED
When the utility returns, a 15 second timer will start.
At the completion of this time, if the utility supply has
been above 80% of nominal voltage for the previous
15 seconds, the control will transfer the load back to
the utility. When the load is transferred a one (1) minute cool down timer will start, after which the engine
will be shutdown.

R-panel Technical Manual
INITIAL CRANKING
The initial crank cycle will be a 15 second crank followed by a seven (7) second rest. This will be followed
by 5 additional cycles of seven (7) second cranks followed by seven (7) second rests. If the engine still
fails to start, the overcrank LED will be illuminated.
Based on the above, the maximum number of engine
crank events is six (6), which is approximately 90
seconds, prior to illuminating the overcrank LED.
ACTIVE ALARM
Low Oil Pressure, High Coolant Temp, Low Coolant
Level, Overspeed, Overcrank, Engine Speed Signal
Loss and a Dead Battery indication will all be latched
shutdowns. In the event one of these conditions
occurs, the unit will be shut down, the appropriate
LED will be illuminated, and the unit will not start
again without manual intervention (see Re-Crank
below).
RE-CRANK
If an engine speed signal failure occurs while the generator is running the engine will shutdown and then
attempt a re-crank. A maximum of two re-cranks will
be attempted after which the overcrank LED will be
set. If the engine speed signal failure occurred during
the engine exercise mode the exercise timer will continue from where it was at the start of the re-crank
and is not reset.
NORMAL EXERCISE MODE
To select this mode, place DIP switch position 3 in
the ON position.
In Normal Exercise Mode the generators will exercise
at their normal running speed.
The R-200B controller will start and run the generator once every seven (7) days for approximately 12
minutes. If the utility fails during the exercise period,
this exercise period is aborted and the R-200B
Controller transfers the load to the generator output,
assumes automatic operation and continues to run
until the utility is returned.
The weekly exercise cycle is set as follows:
1. Place the AUTO/OFF/MANUAL switch in the
AUTO position.
2. Press and hold the "Set Exercise Time " switch for
five (5) seconds and then release.
At this time all five (5) red LED's will flash for 10
seconds, then the engine will start and run for it's
12 minute exercise period, then shut down. The generator will now start and run each week at approximately the same time.
If battery power to the R-200B Controller is lost, the
weekly exercise time setting will be lost. This is indicated by all five (5) red LED's continually flashing in
ATS mode. In this state the generator will still start
and run in MANUAL mode, or automatically start and
run if utility voltage is lost while in AUTO mode, but
it will NOT perform a weekly exercise cycle.
In the event of a failure while running in this mode,
the five (5) red LED's will stop flashing, the individual fault LED will turn on and the engine will be
shut down. Once the AUTO/OFF/MANUAL switch is
switched to OFF, the individual fault LED will turn off
and the five (5) red LED's will begin flashing to show
that the exercise mode has not yet been set.
LOW SPEED EXERCISE
To select this mode place DIP switch position 3 in the
OFF position.
In Low Speed Exercise mode the normal speed 3600
rpm generators will exercise at 1800 rpm. The normal 1800 rpm generators will exercise at 1400 rpm
in this mode.
If the utility fails during the low speed exercise period,
a 10 second timer will start. If the utility returns to
a normal operating level, during this 10 second time
interval the low speed exercise operation will continue. If the utility is still not present (i.e. utility voltage
less than 60% of nominal) when the above 10 second
timer expires then the low speed exercise mode is
terminated and the engine will ramp up to its normal
running speed within five (5) seconds. If the utility
returns during the five (5) second ramp-up period
the generator will terminate the exercise mode. If the
utility is still not present, once the generator is up
to its normal running speed, then the controller will
transfer the load to the generator. When the utility
returns the generator will shutdown.
If battery power to the R-200B Controller is lost, the
weekly exercise time setting will be lost. This is indicated by all 5 red LED's continually flashing in ATS
mode. In this state the generator will still start and
run in MANUAL mode, or automatically start and run
if utility voltage is lost while in AUTO mode, but it will
NOT perform a weekly exercise cycle.
In the event of a failure while running in this mode,
the five (5) red LED's will stop flashing, the individual fault LED will turn on and the engine will be
shut down. Once the AUTO/OFF/MANUAL switch is
switched to OFF, the individual fault LED will turn off
and the five (5) red LED's will begin flashing to show
that the exercise mode has not yet been set.

General Information
R-panel Technical Manual
AUTO START
This unit is designed to automatically start in the
event of a utility failure. A utility failure is defined as
the utility voltage being less than approximately 60%
of nominal, while the utility is considered good when
it is restored to approximately 80% of its nominal
value.
If the generator is already running under exercise
when an auto start is required, it will simply transfer
the load after a 15 second delay and then switch to
auto operation.
DANGER

With the switch set to AUTO, the engine can
crank and start suddenly without warning. Such
automatic start up normally occurs when utility
source voltage drops below a pre-set level. To
prevent possible injury that might be caused by
such sudden starts, set the AUTO/ OFF/MANUAL
switch to OFF and remove the NEGATIVE battery
cable from the battery before working on or
around the unit. Then, place a “DO NOT OPERATE” tag on the control console.
MANUAL START
Allows the user to start and run the generator manually. Transfer of the load to the generator will occur
if the utility is lost while the engine is running in the
manual mode.
SYSTEM READY (GREEN LED
INDICATOR)
Is a positive status indicator and dependent upon the
following conditions being true:
1. Switch in the AUTO position.
2. No other warning indicator present.
3. Controller is functional.
The System Ready LED will also indicate if utility
voltage is present at the control board. The system
ready LED will flash every second (at a 0.5 second
ON and a 0.5 second OFF rate) when utility voltage is
not present at the control board when the switch is in
either the AUTO or MANUAL position. This function
is ONLY available with DIP Switch Position 2 in the
OFF position (ATS application).
The system ready LED will also indicate if the generator is in the GTS Mode (i.e. DIP Switch Position 2 in
the ON Position). The system ready LED will flash at
a five (5) seconds ON and one (1) second OFF rate in
GTS Mode.
6
LOW FUEL PRESSURE (YELLOW LED
INDICATOR)
The yellow low fuel pressure LED will turn ON if the
fuel supply pressure drops below approximately five
(5) inches water column (i.e. occurs when the low fuel
pressure sensing switch on the fuel regulator opens).
This is a non-latched fault (visual LED warning only)
and does not trigger the controller alarm output. Low
fuel pressure sensing is active in all generator operating modes (i.e. MANUAL, OFF and AUTO).
LOW BATTERY (RED LED INDICATOR)
The R-200B controller continually monitors the battery voltage and turns on the low battery LED if the
battery voltage falls below approximately 12.2VDC
for one minute. A low battery voltage is a non-latching
alarm and will not shut down the engine, however,
it is a possible indication of a potential issue with
the battery or battery charger and should be investigated.
The low battery LED will automatically turn off if the
battery voltage rises above approximately 12.5VDC.
If the engine is running when the low battery condition occurs, the engine will continue to run as long
as possible.
If the battery voltage drops below 6V at any time during cranking, or 8V when the generator is running,
the crank cycle will be terminated and the low battery
LED will remain lit. This is a latched fault and will
shut down the engine.
LOW OIL PRESSURE (RED LED
INDICATOR)
Occurs if the oil pressure switch closes while the
engine is running after the 10 second hold off timer
expires. This is a latched fault and will shutdown the
engine.
HIGH COOLANT TEMP (RED LED
INDICATOR)
Occurs if the high coolant temp switch closes. Checks
are made after the 10 second hold off timer expires.
This is a latched fault and will shutdown the engine.
LOW COOLANT LEVEL (FLASHING RED
HIGH COOLANT TEMP LED INDICATOR)
Occurs if the coolant level is low. Checks are made
after the 10 second hold off timer expires. This is a
latched fault and will shutdown the engine.
General Information
R-panel Technical Manual
OVERSPEED (RED LED INDICATOR)
OVERCRANK (RED LED INDICATOR)
An overspeed shutdown will occur if the engine speed
is greater than 4300 rpm for a 3600 rpm engine;
2160 rpm for an 1800 rpm engine; 2250 rpm for an
1800 rpm engine, for three (3) seconds. An overspeed
condition will shutdown the engine and activate the
over speed LED. An immediate overspeed shutdown
will occur if the engine speed is greater than 4500
rpm for a 3600 rpm engine.
Occurs if the engine has not started within the total
90 second crank cycle. This is a latched fault and will
shut down the engine.
RPM SIGNAL FAILURE (FLASHING RED
OVERSPEED INDICATOR)
If the R-200B controller does not receive a signal
from the engine flywheel sensor, the R-200B controller cannot maintain the generator output frequency
or monitor for an overspeed condition. If this signal is lost the R-200B controller will shut down the
engine as follows:
‹ RPM SIGNAL FAILURE DURING CRANKING
The engine control board (R-200B controller) will
monitor the engine speed signal during engine cranking. If the control board does not see a valid signal
within the first four seconds of each crank cycle it
will stop the crank cycle, lock out on a shut down
fault and flash the overspeed LED.
‹ RPM SIGNAL FAILURE DURING RUNNING
Running mode is handled differently because there
is always the possibility the engine could slow down
or stop running due to a temporary overload. To
avoid shutting down and latching out on a temporary
problem the following is done. If the engine is up and
running, and the control board stops receiving a valid
engine speed input signal it will respond as follows:
1. It will close the throttle.
2. It will shut down the engine by turning off the fuel
supply.
3. It will wait for 15 seconds to ensure the engine
has stopped.
4. It will then energize the starter and monitor the
engine speed signal.
A. If the control board does not see the engine
speed signal it will stop the crank cycle, lock out
on fault, and flash the overspeed LED.
B. If the control board does see the engine speed
input signal during cranking it will start and run
the engine normally. If the engine speed signal is
again lost while running it will repeat the above
procedure one more time.
C. If the failure should repeat a third time, the control board will shut down the engine, lock out on
fault, and flash the over speed LED.
IGNITION MODULE FAULT (FLASHING
RED OVERCRANK INDICATOR)
If the Ignition Module detects a fault, this indicator
will flash and the engine will be shut down.
INVALID DIP SWITCH SETTING
(ALL RED LED’S ON)
All five (5) RED LED’s on the front panel will be ON
all the time if DIP switch positions 6 and 7 are both
ON for an 1800 rpm unit.
ALARM CANCEL
When the generator is shut down on a latched fault or
latching alarm, the AUTO/OFF/MANUAL switch must
be set to the OFF position to turn off the corresponding fault LED. Prior to moving the switch to the OFF
position, record which LEDs are ON or FLASHING
and the date on the back cover of this manual.
AUTOMATIC TRANSFER SWITCH (ATS
MODE)
When this generator, along with an RTS-type or
HS-type automatic transfer switch has been installed
and connected, a circuit board in the generator control panel constantly monitors the utility voltage and
controls the operation of the transfer switch.
To implement this mode of operation, Position 2 of
the eight-position DIP switch, which is located on the
generator circuit board (see Figures 1 and 2), must
be in the OFF position. In ATS Mode utility voltage
sensing, weekly exercising, and load transferring is
under the control of the generator.
Should the utility voltage drop below a preset value,
and remain at this low voltage for a preset amount
of time, the generator cranks and starts. After the
generator starts, the transfer switch transfers the
load circuits to the generator so the generator can
power them. When the utility source voltage has been
restored, the transfer switch re-transfers the load
circuits back to the utility source voltage and the generator shuts down.
The transfer switch is controlled by the generator
circuit board via control wires 23 and 194. Wire 23
connects the collector of an NPN transistor on the
generator circuit board to the “low side” (Terminal
23) of the transfer relay coil in the transfer switch.
Wire 194 connects positive battery voltage from the
generator circuit board to the “high side” (Terminal
194) of the transfer relay coil in the transfer switch.

General Information
R-panel Technical Manual
In order for the generator utility voltage sensing
function to work, it is necessary to provide a 5 amp
fused 240VAC for 240V or 480V systems or 208VAC
utility source connection (depending on the generator
being used) from the transfer switch main N1 and N2
terminals to the generator wiring panel N1 and N2
terminals (See Figure 3).
very careful when connecting high-voltage
 Be
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 utility source connection to the generator wiring panel
LINE, NEUTRAL and GND terminals (see Figure 3).
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
transferring.
When Position 2 of the eight-position DIP switch,
which is located on the generator circuit board (see
Figure 1), is in the ON position then utility voltage
sensing, weekly exercising and load transferring is
under the control of the engineered W-type transfer
switch (GTS Mode).
Generator control board DIP switch position 2 ON =
2-wire Start GTS Mode:
• The generator control board will NOT monitor the
utility.
• The generator control board will NOT perform a
weekly exercise. (In GTS mode the green system
ready LED will be ON for five (5) seconds and OFF
for one (1) second).

OFF: The generator will not start and run in this
position. Only the System Ready LED and the Low
Battery LED are active in the GTS OFF mode.
MANUAL: The control board will start and run the
generator whenever the switch is in the manual position.
AUTO: The control board will monitor the 2-wire
start circuit. When the 2-wire start wire 178 is connected to 2-wire start wire 183, via a relay contact
closure in the W-type transfer switch, the control
board will start and run the generator. When the
2-wire start wire connection is opened the control
board will stop the generator.
When the control board is in AUTO, MANUAL or OFF
(GTS mode) the GREEN System Ready LED will flash
(five (5) seconds ON, one (1) second OFF) to indicate that the transfer switch is performing the utility
monitoring and transfer functions.
VOLTAGE REGULATOR ADJUSTMENT
Although adjustment potentiometers are provided on
the voltage regulator installed in the control panel,
the voltage regulator potentiometers have been set at
the factory and should NOT be re-adjusted.

2.5A BATTERY CHARGER
The 2.5 Amp battery charger is a "float" type charger. A "float" type charger will charge the battery at
its maximum output current rating until the battery
voltage reaches a "float" voltage and then the charge
current will decrease to maintain the battery at that
"float" voltage.
The 2.5 Amp charger is UL recognized for use in the
R-panel enclosure and are not to be operated outside
the R-panel enclosure.
DANGER
batteries give off explosive hydrogen

gas. This gas can form an explosive mixture
around the battery for several hours after charging. The slightest spark can ignite the gas and
cause an explosion. Such an explosion can shatter the battery and cause blindness or other
injury. Any area that houses a storage battery
must be properly ventilated. Do not allow smoking, open flame, sparks or any spark producing
tools or equipment near the battery.

displays generator run time in hours and tenths of
hours. This meter is active whenever the generator is
run and is not able to be reset. It provides a convenient and accurate reference for routine maintenance
logs.
IGNITION MODULE DESCRIPTION
The Ignition Module operates with either a 4-cylinder,
2.4L engine or a 6-cylinder 4.2L engine. With the
2.4L engine, it uses the same flywheel mag pick-up
signal as the R-200B controller. The configuration of
the 4.2L engine does not require the shared signal.
‹ FUEL SELECT CONNECTOR
For the 2.4L units, this connector is located in the
engine harness behind the R-Panel. It is not used with
the 4.2L units.
Engine timing for Natural Gas (NG) Fuel is selected
when this connection is MADE (i.e. the two connector
halves are plugged together).
Engine timing for LP Fuel is selected when this connection is LEFT OPEN. When this connector is left
open the plugs, located in the R-Panel, should be
installed in these connectors to prevent moisture
from entering the harness connectors.
the Generator's Fuel Regulator is con Whenever
verted from one Fuel type to the other, make
sure to configure the Fuel Select Connector for
the correct Fuel type.
‹ DIAGNOSTIC BLINK PATTERNS (RED LED
LOCATED ON THE IGNITION MODULE)
During normal ignition operation the RED LED,
located on the ignition module, flashes at a 0.5 second ON and a 0.5 second OFF rate. This is considered one (1) blink.
RED LED Fault Codes are described in the generator
Owner's Manual.
NOTE:
There are openings inside the customer wiring
panel that allow the RED LED inside the ignition
module to be seen without removing the ignition
module.
