Before making any connections, route the positive and negative battery cables directly to the DC connection terminals on the Prosine Inverter. Slide the plastic terminal connector covers (boots) over the positive and negative cables (the red boot slides on the positive cable and the black boot slides on the negative cable). Do not route the cables through an electrical distribution panel, battery isolator, or other device that will add additional voltage drops except for the required fuse or breaker on the positive battery terminal. Install the inverter so that the battery wire length is as short as possible. The connectors on the Prosine Inverter are designed to fit up to 250 MCM crimp-on ring terminals (either AMP or ILSCO) or box connectors (these tighten on connected cable using a set screw). Note, the coloured terminal covers (boots) fit much better with crimp-on ring terminals, and these are recommended over the box connectors.General Safety Precautions

4. The Prosine Inverter is designed to be permanently connected to your DC electrical systems (and for hardwire versions, permanently connected to your AC electrical system). To ensure adherence to proper electrical wiring regulations all wiring must be done by a certified technician or electrician.
5. To avoid a risk of fire and electric shock, make sure that existing wiring is in good electrical condition; and that wire size is not undersized. Do not operate the Prosine Inverter with damaged or substandard wiring.
6. Do not operate the Prosine Inverter if it has received a sharp blow, been dropped, or otherwise damaged in any way. If the Prosine Inverter has been damaged, refer to Section 6 of this manual.
7. Do not disassemble the Prosine Inverter; refer to Section 6 of this manual for instructions on obtaining service for the Prosine Inverter.Attempting to service the unit yourself may result in a risk of electrical shock or fire.
8. To reduce risk of electrical shock, disconnect the DC power (and AC power if applicable on hardwire versions) from the Prosine Inverter before attempting any maintenance or cleaning or working on any equipment and circuits connected to the Prosine Inverter. Turning off controls will not reduce this risk.
9. Grounding: The Prosine Inverter must be provided with an equipment-grounding conductor connected to the AC input ground terminal. Grounding and all other wiring must comply with local codes and ordinances.
