INSTALLATION
WARNING: Disconnect all power sources before installing or servicing this unit. The GTD is intended for an electrical load of ONE fixture only.
NOTE: BEFORE INSTALLING THE GENERATOR TRANSFER DEVICE, M ake sure that the necessary branch
circuit WIRING is available. An unswitched source of power on the same branch circuit as the ac
ballast is required. A SEPARATE CONNECTION TO A GENERATOR or central inverter SUPPLIED CIRCUIT MUST ALSO BE
PROVIDED.
INSTALLING THE SWITCH BYPASS DEVICE
> FAMILIARIZE YOURSELF WITH THESE INSTRUCTIONS BEFORE BEGINNING INSTALLATION.
> Disconnect AC power from the fixture. Remove the ballast channel cover and install the GTD in the ballast channel (see Illustrations 1 or 2).
> Wire the GTD as shown in Illustration 3.
> After installation is complete, apply AC power to the fixture. Check AC ballast operation to verify proper GTD installation.

OPERATION
The GTD uses an internal relay contact to control the AC power feeding the AC ballast or driver. When the generator (or
central inverter) supplies AC power to the lighting fixture, the GTD bypasses the wall switch controlling the AC ballast or
driver. This ensures the fixture lighting load will be energized during generator (or central inverter) operation regardless
of switch position.
MAINTENANCE
No routine maintenance is required to keep the GTD functional. However, it should be checked periodically to ensure that
it is working properly.
