    Voltage locations in MEP-003 control cubicle

    yes, in those pictures i did just a quick hookup just to see them working. the best way is to set these up to monitor voltage and current on each hot leg. this would normally show 120 as the voltage reading. i connect them to the input side of the main breaker. this way they are on when the...

    Disconnecting Battery of MEP-002A or MEP-003A While Running: Damage?

    thats awesome jim. glad you decided to do this. i know many including myself have been asking for quite a long time. as usual it looks quite professional and im sure the inside is done to the same detail. i actually might need one for my 002. i have to dig into it a little bit and do some...

    MEP-002 Tripping DC Control Circuit Breaker

    it needs power to produce power. when it just starts up you need to hold in the start position to generate the magnetic field so it can produce power. its fairly normal and time needed seems to vary a bit from generator to generator.
