HOW TO RESOURCE: BOLIY GENERATOR AC & DC FUNCTIONS



In this section, you will find information on the following:

USING GENERATOR'S AC FUNCTION
USING AC-PILOT LIGHT'S OVERLOAD INDICATOR
DC CIRCUIT BREAKER
USING DC BATTERY-CHARGING SYSTEM
HANDLING BATTERIES

USING GENERATOR'S AC FUNCTION:

To obtain AC power:

A)Start generator engine.

B)Plug load into generator outlet(s).

CAUTION: be sure that electrical devices are turned off before plugging them into generator outlets. This will save wear and tear on engine.

CAUTION: be sure that rated watts of your appliances do not exceed maximum running wattage of generator.

TIP: for best results, spread load as evenly as possible between generator outlets.

C)Check to make sure AC indicator is flickering(located at bottom left of outlet panel). This means that the generator's electric system is functioning properly.

REMEMBER: since AC pilot lamp doubles as generatorís overload indicator, it will go off automatically when load is engaged, and will remain off during operation unless overload is detected.

D)Turn on electric devices. For best results, activate devices on in order of required running watts.


USING AC-PILOT LIGHT'S OVERLOAD INDICATOR:

On your Boliy generator, the AC pilot lamp(located at bottom left of outlet panel) doubles as an overload indicator.

When load has been engaged, activation of pilot light can mean several things:

A)An overload has occurred.

B)The computer module controlling generatorís inverter function has overheated.

C)A short circuit has been detected.

When any of these conditions has been met, the computer module will interrupt electrical power to the generator outlets immediately. Be aware that engine will NOT stop running.

If generator outlets stop producing power:

D)Check the AC pilot light for possible overload. If overload is detected, light will be glowing steadily.

If overload indicator HAS come on, and generator power has stopped, follow these guidelines:

E)Turn OFF all connected appliances.

F)Check again to be sure that running watts of connected appliances do not exceed wattage output of generator.

G)If load does not exceed recommended wattage, check for debris buildup around computer control unit, and blockages in generatorís air cleaner. If any are discovered, remove.

H)If neither of these possibilities appears to be cause of interrupted power, then there may be a short circuit in one of the connected devices. Disconnect load, restart generator, and plug appliances in one by one, beginning with appliance requiring highest number of watts. This procedure should allow you to identify faulty device.

REMEMBER: the electronic circuit breaker in your Boliy generator can only be reset by restarting unit. Until generator has been shut down and restarted, no power will reach outlet panel!


DC CIRCUIT BREAKER:

The DC circuit breaker in your Boliy generator's control panel is designed to trip if your DC load exceeds generator output. Circuit breaker can be reset simply by pressing.

If circuit breaker trips again after load has been reduced to specified levels, breaker could be defective. Consult your authorized dealer for further instructions.


USING DC BATTERY-CHARGING SYSTEM:

CAUTION: Never attempt to use AC and DC power simultaneously. Doing so can damage generator.

To use DC current for battery charging, do the following:

I)With motor turned off, connect battery-charging cables to DC outlet; wrap 2 - 3 times around generator handle to eliminate cable play for safety.

J)Start engine. Generator motor should be running before you connect cable ends to battery.

K)Depress DC circuit breaker(located to immediate right of DC outlet) before you connect charging cables to battery.

TIP: the Boliy DC outlet capacity is 12 volts; this means that one 12-volt(automotive-style) battery can be charged, or, if they are connected in parallel, that two 6-volt batteries can be charged simultaneously.

L)When connecting the battery you wish to charge, red charging wire should be attached to positive battery terminal; black charging wire should be connected to negative battery terminal. Never reverse these connections!

CAUTION: before charging any battery, examine its casing and leads and connectors for damage. If damage to battery casing is discovered, battery probably needs replacing. Any crack in the casing will require a new battery.

CAUTION: if the DC circuit breaker trips during battery-charging operation, check to be sure that connected load does not exceed the DC-outlet's recommended 12 volts.

If load does not exceed recommended voltage, reset circuit breaker, and re-install battery. If the circuit-breaker trips again, consult your authorized Boliy dealer.


HANDLING BATTERIES:

Here are a few pointers for handling batteries:

M)Battery electrolyte is poisonous; keep children a safe distance away anytime you're working on one!

N)Because battery electrolyte contains sulfuric acid, it can cause severe burns. Avoid contact with skin, clothing, and eyes.

If contamination of skin occurs, wash affected area liberally with water, and seek medical attention.

O)For safety, always wear eye protection when working on electrolyte batteries. If battery acid comes into contact with eyes, seek immediate help at a nearby emergency room!

P)Battery acid is explosive. Keep sparks, open flame, cigarettes, or any other burning object away from battery you're charging, or working on.

Q)If possible, perform battery maintenance or charging in an open or well-ventilated area.

TIP: To keep batteries from being overcharged, it is best to check electrolyte specific gravity on an hourly basis. For information on how to get an accurate reading, and other helpful battery-care tips, visit http://www.autoshop101.com/forms/hweb4.pdf
