I have a Multiplus 24/5000 I'm just about to install. Reading through the quick installation guide, the order seems to be:
- Mount it and remove front panel
- Fit auxillary cables (temp/volt sensor etc.)
- Connect main battery
- Connect trickle battery
- Connect control panel
- Connect earth
- Connect AC-Out-1
- Connect AC-Out-2
- Connect AC-In-1
- Re-fit front panel.
The guide specifically shows no switch between the battery and the Multiplus (it does show a fuse holder, but with a fuse already fitted). This means, as I understand it, that from step (3) onwards, it is possible that the unit will be live at 240v and step (7) is therefore potentially dangerous.
Is this right?
If this isn't right and the main battery should be switched, then could somebody advise what the correct sequence of powering the unit up is (i.e. battery and then AC-In, or vice-versa)?
Also, the quick installation guide makes no mention of pre-charging the Multiplus (and neither does any other document I can find). Is this necessary before the unit is powered?
Thanks in advance,
