Safety Precautions When Working With Batteries

Safety Precautions When Working With Batteries

  •  Follow all instructions published by the battery manufacturer and the manufacturer of the equipment in which the battery is installed.
  • Make sure the area around the battery is well ventilated. Battery enclosures should be designed to prevent the accumulation and concentration of hydrogen gas in “pockets” at the top of the compartment. Vent the battery compartment from the highest point. A sloped lid can also be used to direct the flow to the vent opening location.
  •  Never smoke or allow a spark or flame near the engine or batteries.
  • Use caution to reduce the risk or dropping a metal tool on the battery. It could spark or short circuit the battery or other electrical parts and could cause an explosion.
  • Remove all metal items, like rings, bracelets, and watches when working with leadacid batteries. Batteries produce a short circuit current high enough to weld metal to skin, causing a severe burn.
  • Have someone within range of your voice or close enough to come to your aid when you work near batteries.
  • Have plenty of fresh water and soap nearby in case battery acid contacts skin, clothing, or eyes.
  • Wear complete eye protection and clothing protection. Avoid touching your eyes while working near batteries.
  • If battery acid contacts skin or clothing, wash immediately with soap and water. If acid enters your eye, immediately flood it with running cold water for at least twenty minutes and get medical attention immediately.
  • If you need to remove a battery, always remove the ground terminal from the battery first. Make sure all accessories are off so you don’t cause a spark.
  • Never charge a frozen battery.
  • If a remote or automatic generator control system is used, disable the automatic starting circuit and/or disconnect the generator from it’s starting battery while performing maintenance to prevent accidental starting.

Inverter Features and Applications

Inverter Features and Applications

  • Pure sine wave output (THD < 3%)
  • Output frequency:50 / 60Hz switch selections
  • Input & output fully isolated design
  • Power Saving Mode to conserve energy
  • High efficiency : 89~94%
  • Driving highly inductive & capacitive loads at start moment
  • Tri-Color indicators show input voltage & output load level
  • Loading controlled cooling fan
  • Advanced microprocessor controls
  • Protection -  Input low voltage, Overload Short circuit, Low battery alarm Input over voltage, Over temperature

  • Power tools – circular saws, drills, grinders, sanders, buffers, weed and hedge trimmers, air compressors, etc.
  • Office equipment – computers, printers, monitors, facsimile machines, scanner, etc.
  • Household appliances – vacuum cleaners, fans, fluorescent and incandescent lights, shavers, sewing machines, etc.
  • Kitchen appliances – coffee makers, blenders, ice markers, toasters, etc.
  • Industrial equipment – metal halide lamp, high pressure sodium lamps, etc.
  • Home entertainment electronics – television, VCRs, video games, stereos, musical instruments, satellite receivers, etc.

General Safety Precautions for Inverter Holders

General Safety Precautions:

  • Do not expose the inverter to rain, snow, spray, bilge or dust. To reduce the risk of hazard, do not cover or obstruct the ventilation openings. Do not install the inverter in a zero clearance compartment. Overheating may result.
  • To avoid a risk of fire and/or electronic shock, make sure that existing wiring is in good condition and not undersized. Do not operate the inverter with damaged or substandard wiring.
  • Some components in the inverter can cause arcs and sparks. To prevent fire or explosion, do not put batteries, flammable materials, or anything that should be ignition–protected around the inverter.

Precautions When Working with Batteries:

  • If battery acid contacts skin or clothing, you must wash it out with soap and water immediately. If battery acid contacts your eyes, you must wash it out with cold running water for at least 20 minutes and get medical attention immediately.
  • Never smoke or make a spark or flame in the vicinity of the battery or the engine.
  • Do not drop a metal tool on the battery. The resulting spark or short-circuit on the battery or other electrical part may cause an explosion.
  • Remove personal metal items such as rings, bracelets, necklaces, and watches when operating with a lead-acid batteries. Failure to do so may cause short circuit and very high temperature, which can melt metal items and burn your skin.
