SF80 INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS
1. Voltage Verification
Prior to product installation, verify that the voltage rating of the intended electrical service matches the voltage rating of the unit to be installed. Warning: serious injury or damage can result from installing a product with an improper voltage rating. Contact Current Technology if voltage ratings are not identical. For WYE connected systems, verify neutral-ground bond on secondary side of upstream distribution or service entrance transformer. Warranty void if SF80 is connected to incorrect voltage configuration or if neutral-ground bond is not present in WYE configured systems.
2. Installation Location
To minimize installed system impedance, install SF80 in a location that minimizes electrical wire bends and wiring distance from point of connection.
Utilizing the mounting feet and hardware supplied with the unit, mount the SF80 securely and rigidly to building surface or structural member. Attach conduit and pull wires as necessary.
4. Electrical Connections
VERIFY THAT POWER IS DE-ENERGIZED ON ELECTRICAL LINES ASSOCIATED WITH INSTALLATION OF THIS UNIT. SF80 units without integral overcurrent protection must be installed in parallel with the electrical distribution system via a fused disconnect switch or circuit breaker. Fuses or circuit breakers rated for 40A or less must be used. Use #8 AWG or larger copper conductor for all connections including neutral and ground connections (no neutral (N) or transient ground (G) in DELTA configurations). Tighten lugs securely to a maximum torque of 27 in-lb. Caution: B phase must be the high leg for high leg DELTA configured products installed on high leg DELTA systems. Contact factory for other voltage configurations not listed on SF80 technical data sheet.
5. Fuse Block-option
SF80 models are available with integral fuse block option. SF80 models with fuse block option may still be installed in parallel with the electrical distribution system via a non-fused disconnect or circuit breaker. Use #8 AWG or larger copper conductor for all connections
including neutral and ground connections (no neutral (N) or transient ground (G) in DELTA configurations). In the event of fuse failure, the SF80 should be tested with the DTS-2 test set to verify operational integrity. Having verified that the unit is within factory specified tolerances, contact factory for replacement fuses.
6. Remote Monitor Contacts Option
SF80 models are available with two sets of form C remote monitor dry contacts which can be connected to building management systems or remote annunciation alarm panels. To wire contacts, locate the output terminals mounted on the dry contact circuit board. Each set of contacts may be wired independently. Each set of form C contacts include common (C), normally open (NO) and normally closed (NC) contacts. For normally open operation under energized conditions, connect the normally open terminal and common terminal to the monitoring input. For normally closed operation during energized conditions, connect the normally closed terminal and common terminal to the monitoring input. Upon loss of power to any or all phases, contacts will change to alarm state.
7. Before energizing SF80
Check all connections to ensure solid electrical connection. Tighten any loose connections to appropriate torque values.
Measure voltage Line-to-Line, Line-to-Neutral, Line-to-Ground and Neutral-to-Ground to ensure that it does not exceed ±10% of the nominal rated voltage for the unit. Contact factory if these tolerances are exceeded.
8. Final Instructions
If all voltages are in tolerance, replace the cover of the unit and tighten fastening screws. Apply power to the unit by engaging the appropriate fused disconnect switch or circuit breaker. Illumination of status lights indicates proper function.
9. DTS-2 Test Point
