   UV/10- Important Precautions

CAUTION
The UV/10 produces lethal voltages. It should be installed by a qualified electrician and operated with care and attention. The battery pack is capable of supplying hazardous current. Follow the instructions carefully.

THIS UNIT IS CONNECTED IN SERIES BETWEEN THE AC LINE & OPERATOR
AC power flows from the main circuit breaker into the UV/10. The Output of the UV/10 is then connected to the AC input of the Operator.

WARNING: DANGEROUS VOLTAGES ARE PRESENT EVEN WHEN AC IS OFF. USE CAUTION.

SETTING THE DIP SWITCHES
Two different styles of DIP switches may be used on the control board to set the mode of operation. You may have slide switches or rocker switches. Slide switches are controlled by sliding the tab either up or down using a sharp point. Sliding the tab up turns the switch ON. Sliding the tab down turns the switch OFF. Rocker switches are set by pushing the rocker towards the top or bottom with a sharp pointed tool. Pushing on the top of the rocker sets the switch ON. Pushing on the bottom of the rocker sets the switch OFF.

IMPORTANT Installation Precautions

SAVE THESE INSTRUCTIONS:
This manual contains important instructions that should be followed during installation and maintenance of the UV/10 and batteries.

TERMINAL CONNECTIONS:
Use No. 12 AWG, 60° C copper wire for AC input and output connections. For proper connection, the terminal screws should be tightened to 20 in-lb.

BATTERY CONSIDERATIONS:
The following points should be observed with the batteries:
1. Servicing of batteries should be performed or supervised by personnel knowledgeable of batteries and the required precautions. Keep unauthorized personnel away from batteries.
2. When replacing batteries, use the same number and the following types of batteries: Yuasa Maintenance-Free, rechargeable NP7-12, 12V 7.0Ahr or equiv.
3. CAUTION: Do not dispose of battery or batteries in a fire. The battery may explode. Batteries should be taken to a recycling center to save earth resources.
4. CAUTION: Do not open or mutilate the battery or batteries. Released electrolyte is harmful to the skin and eyes. It may be toxic.
5. CAUTION: A battery can present a risk of high short circuit current. The following precautions should be observed when working on batteries:
a) Remove watches, rings or other metal objects.
b) Use tools with insulated handles.


MOUNTING THE UV/10 Five number 10 holes are located on the inside, back surface of the unit. These holes should be used for mounting the UV/10 to a vertical surface. Use number 10 machine or lag bolts. In addition there are four " knockouts. Three are on the bottom surface and one is located on the back surface. These should be used for wiring. IMPORTANT: No additional holes should be drilled into the UV/10 housing. Drilling produces metal filings, which can cause shorts on the circuit board and will void the warranty.

DISABLING THE UV/10
Carefully:
1. Turn the UV/10 output breaker off
2. Disconnect the battery plug between the battery pack and the UV/10.
3. Remove AC Power to the UV/10 at the Main Breaker.


WARNING STICKERS
ATTACH THE SUPPLIED WARNING STICKERS TO THE GATE SYSTEM. They should be placed in a manner so maintenance personnel will see them before doing any work or dropping the AC service. In addition, residents and managers should be made aware of how the PowerGuard UV/10 operates in their system.

PERIODIC MAINTENANCE
As with any emergency system, proper operation should be checked at least once a month. The batteries should provide service up to 2 years.

TROUBLESHOOTING
If there are problems once the unit is installed, check the following:
1. Make sure the Gate system is operating normally with the UV/10 out of circuit.
2. Make sure the system is operating normally with the UV/10 in the circuit, but with the AC turned on.
3. Improper wiring or DIP settings: Double check all wiring and switch settings.
4. Weak batteries. Check for full charge (They should read more than 52 Volts).
