e) f) g) h) i) Press the + or – button to reach the available capacity. Each step is 0,5A (more or less). When you have reached the correct setting, you can save this by pressing both buttons simultaneously for 2 seconds again. The display will now indicate the actuall power. If you move to another camping site or you need to reset, please repeat steps a-f. When used normally the set maximum power consumption can be read by pressing the + or – button briefly. The Fuse Control can be set to a maximum consumpiton of 10A (is approx. 2300 Watt). If you want to take a higher amperage, you need to do this without using the Fuse Control. Ostensibly you can set higher ampèrages than 10A, however these will not function. When used more than 10A, the device turns off automatically. 6. TOO HIGH CONSUMPTION When a too high power consumption is reached, the Fuse Control will turn off the power supply in the vehicle. The display will indicated “FF”. Turn off the last switched on device(s) and press the + and - button of the Fuse Control simultaneously and briefly to reset. The Fuse Control will reset the power supply if you don’t have switched on more 230V devices than the capacity available. 7. CALCULATIONS Volt x Ampere = Watt In other words: if the power connection is 230V (in most European countries) and you have available 4A , you can use 4 x 230V = 920 Watt. In this way you can always easily calculate the capacity of your electrical devices. 8. TIPS 1) 2) 3) Fitting must be done by a qualified electrician. The Fuse Control is an electronic device; treat this with care. Be carefull with moisture. Reich Benelux Office Delta 44, NL-6825 MS Arnhem Tel.

General Operation Connection Installation Use of the Fuse Control Too high consumption Calculations Tips 0. 1. GENERAL The Fuse Control is a device that switches 230V. In case of damage or doubt regarding the correct operation of the device, it should be turned off. OPERATION The device protects against overload of your electrical connection on the camping site. The available amperage is usually limited. A too high power demand in your caravan or motorhome gives you trouble and the camping owner inconvenience. When the Fuse Control is used correctly it will switch of the power supply without loading the fuse on the camping site. ALWAYS KEEP THESE INSTRUCTIONS WITH YOUR CARAVAN! Reich GmbH is not responsible or liable for any damage whatsoever caused by using the Fuse Control. In event of any damage caused by a defect or production fault of the device, we will only be liable to refund the purchase cost of the Fuse Control. 2. INSTALLATION The Fuse Control is permanently installed inside the caravan or camper in the incoming 230V power supply. Reich GmbH reserves all rights to modify or alter the Fuse Control without prior notice. 3. CONNECTION Site post à Earth switch à Fuse Control It is illegal to sell, export or re-export the Fuse Control or a copy or adaptation of the Fuse Control to dealers in the USA and/or Canada without written permission from Reich GmbH. 4. WIRING DIAGRAM 1. Turn off the power supply. 2. Open the Fuse Control. 3. Lead the incoming cable in the allocated opening. 4. Strip the cable 4mm max. 5. Connect the green/yellow cable to the mass and the phase (brown) and the zero (blue) to the allocated connections. 6. Proceed in the same way for the outgoing cable (connection to all devices in caravan or motorhome). Prevent under all circumstances that contact is being made with the printed circuit board. 7. Close the Fuse Control. 8. Connect the incoming cable to the power supply. You can now use the Fuse Control. 5. USE Depending on the available capacity you set the Fuse Control.
