^^What he said. A minor source of heartburn for people camperizing comm shelters and shop trucks is that their bulkhead mounted AC or HVAC systems (even the little 6K BTU ones) all run on 208/3 phase, which isn't commonly available at your friendly local campground.The military practically runs on 3-phase. Anything 'militarized'. Any civilian equipment is typically 120v (laptops, battery chargers, smart boards, etc). All your portable field equipment is 3-phase.
It's in -34 on page 82.Where in the manual is the adjusting the R3 screw. I could not find it. I think my dryer is tripping my genset.
That sounds correct according to the manual. Then if you have a typical real-world load of 10,000 VAR, PF=0.8, the meter will read 100%.When I load tested mine using 12,500 watts, my meter indicated 130%. If I multiply 12,500 by 0.8, I get 100%, so should I adjust the meter down to 100% with a 12,500 watt resistive load?
No, the oddity is just in how the manual says to calibrate the meter so it reflects the capability of the generator with real-world loads. 12,500 watts (resistive) ÷ 240 volts = 52 amps, and that's a 25% overload, even though the meter reads 100% This means that with a purely resistive load and a meter calibrated according to the manual, the meter is misleading, and reads too low.Should I be seeing 41.6 amps with a 12,500 watt resistive load @ 240 volts?
