I have more or less the same box.

It makes sense that a solution might be to interrupt the AC in this box trough a relais.

This will be the road to a solutions.

Iíd be reluctant to put a contacter in the control box because itís prone to heat and vibration but it is the obvious and neatest location. I prefer control boxes to be outside the sound shield like on the smaller ( 12kva) Koehler gensets. I work in the tropics where 25įC is considered cool and the climate in a sound enclosure is quite demanding. We use a cooling fan on the control box on NLs because AVRís are sensitive and expensive

Thanks and you're right.
I thinks one ore to wires will be sufficient because there is already a connector/relay in de CB.

Re: TSC Northern Lights

Probably best to leave up to the installers to take care of the wiring.

Re: TSC Northern Lights

I found the pin I needed for warming-up (Pin 3 at the J3 connector).
That pin provides +12V when warming-up and cooling down (both adjustible).
The 12V goes to a relay wich interups the power from generator to Quattro.
It all works very well.

Next job: Instead adjusting the warming-up time, I would like to detemine the warming-up time by the temperature sensor of the engine.
Is anyone familiair with this adjustment on the Northern Lights S-TSC or Dynagen TG410?

Thanks very much!!
