Operate engine at no load for approximately 5 minutes or until coolant temperature reaches 100F (38C). If required,
load can be applied immediately.
When TQG is running smoothly, fine tune VOLTAGE (3) and FREQUENCY (4) adjust potentiometers to required
values for voltage and frequency if necessary.
High voltage power is available when the main contactor is closed. Avoid accidental contact with
live components. Ensure load cables are properly connected and the load cable door is shut before
closing main contactor. Ensure load is turned off before closing main contactor. Ensure that
