The BFA Fuse Status Indicator shows normal or open fuse and also reports
connection integrity. With a nominal 3-phase line voltage applied, the BFA Fuse
Status Indicator flashes a normal LED green light that gives positive indication of
a good fuse and integrity of the wire connection to each side of the fuse. The
indicator flashes a red fault LED when a fuse is unconnected or open, if there is
a lost connection to either side of the fuse, and if mismatched line and load wires
are present. When phase loss occurs both fault and normal LED’s will extinguish. The indicator will continue to indicate the status of the fuse during a
phase loss if a regenerated voltage is produced on the open phase from a rotating motor. The BFA Fuse Status Indicator mounts externally to a panel and
can be mounted vertically or horizontally. It can be used for all UL Fuses Class
H, J, K, R, RK. It can be viewed from a distance and has a universal input of
208-600 VAC.

Follow all Local, State, and National Electrical Codes when installing
this equipment.
A 7/8" hole or 1/2" conduit knockout will have to be located on a
visible surface of the panel being monitored. When mounting on a
hinged door, place the hole location as close to the panel hinge as
possible. This will reduce the amount of cable slack required to
properly open and close the panel door. See Figure 1.
Remove the mounting hardware and insert the wiring harness and the
threaded nipple through the hole. Secure the unit in place by
reinstalling the locknut. Do not over torque.
Refer to Figure 3 for proper wiring connections. Figure 2 represents
the preferred method of termination.

TURN POWER ON. All three (3) green LEDs should flash independently at a rate of 2 flashes/sec. indicating a normal operating
condition.
If all three (3) green LEDs do not flash, TURN POWER OFF and check
wiring connections. If wiring is correct, refer to troubleshooting guide
(on back side) to determine the existing failure status.

MAINTENANCE
Upon final installation of the Model BFA Fust Status Indicator, no routine
maintenance is required. The Model BFA is not field serviceable and should be
returned if repair is needed (field repair should not be attempted and may void
warranty). Be sure to include a brief description of the problem plus any relevant
application notes. Contact customer service to receive a return goods
authorization number before shipping.
