According to this charging system isn't working correctly ! This is a computer controlled charging system .
Principles of Operation
The powertrain control module (PCM) controlled charging system determines the optimal voltage setpoint for the charging system and communicates this information to the voltage regulator. This system is unique in that it has 2 unidirectional communication lines between the PCM and the generator/regulator. Both of these communication lines are pulse-width modulated (PWM). The generator communication (GEN COM) line communicates the desired setpoint from the PCM to the voltage regulator. The generator monitor (GEN MON) line communicates the generator load and error conditions to the PCM. The third pin on the voltage regulator, the A circuit pin, is a dedicated battery voltage sense line.
The charging system voltage is controlled by the PCM. The generator charges the battery and at the same time supplies power for all of the electrical loads that are required. The battery is more effectively charged with a higher voltage when the battery is cold and a lower voltage when the battery is warm. The PCM is able to adjust the charging voltage according to the battery temperature by using a signal from the intake air temperature (IAT) sensor. This means the voltage setpoint is calculated by the PCM and communicated to the regulator by a communication link.
The PCM simultaneously controls and monitors the output of the generator. When the current consumption is high or the battery is discharged (the PCM recognizes this and increases the output of the generator to accommodate), the system is also able to increase the idle speed to increase the charge.
To minimize the engine drag when starting the engine, the PCM does not allow the generator to produce any output until the engine has started. The PCM then progressively increases the output of the generator.
The PCM turns the charging system warning indicator off after the engine is started and illuminates it under fault conditions (when the generator is not generating the correct amount of current with the engine running). The charging system warning indicator is also illuminated by the PCM whenever the key is ON with the engine OFF.
This is a System 4 charging system, which uses the GEN MON and GEN COM lines to control and monitor the charging system through the PCM. System 4 charging systems are virtually identical in design and therefore, share the same diagnostics. The circuit numbers and colors may be different, but the functions are the same.

Trying to wire a single phase 1HP motor to a standard hot, neutral, ground plug. J10 Black ----] 2 White----] low volt line T4 Yellow---] P2 Brown----] T3 Orange---] T5 Red--------] P1 P


didnt specify to much --generic answer -- sounds like hooking up a heating or cooling unit black and white should be your line voltage use a meter to test your black and white line for 110v if motor is 110v the low voltage lines are control or switch lines that dont go to motor they usually go to a thermostat or transformer

6 light 2 spot light low volt moon Raysystem trouble making a connection on 4They clip onto line fine wont stay lit Is there a way to clip the lights to the low voltage line better so they stay lit.


Not sure what you are needing here but if its a poor connection, try soldering the wiring or using correct spade and socket connectors.

How do I wire a Polaris PB4-60 in the USA (115V)?


I am not sure if this will help you out any, but here goes:
Line1 & Line 2 are your Hot Power Wires coming into the motor.
It does not really matter which wire goes to which post of the motor.
This will remain true if you are bringing in 110-115-120 (these are all the same, people just refer to them differently) which also is referred to at times as "Low" voltage, and the same goes for 220-230-240 (again, referred to differently) which is referred to at times as "High" voltage.
Whether bringing in Low voltage or High Voltage, the wires you bring in will number only three:
  • Ground
  • Hot
  • Hot (potentially Hot)
Low Voltage (115) will have:
  • 1 Absolute Hot Wire = Line 1. Normally Black
  • 1 Potentially Hot Wire = Common/Nuetral Line 2, normally White
  • Ground/Earth = Normally Green
High Voltage (220) will have:
  • 1 Absolute Hot Wire - Line 1, Normally will be same color as Line 2 or Black/Red
  • 1 Absolute Hot Wire - Line 2, Normally will be same color as Line 1 or Red/Black
  • Ground - Green
In either of the above voltages, it does not matter which wire goes where, as long as a Hot wire goes onto Line 1 and the other "Hot or Potentially Hot, if 110", goes onto Line 2. Do not put a Hot wire anywhere else and Do Not put a Ground wire on either Line 1 or 2!

Most Motors are coming out of the factory wired for High Voltage Set up (220), so you will have to move some wires or a terminal block, to set the motor to operate at "Low" voltage (115). These motors are "Dual" Voltage, they have the capability to run either 110 or 220. But they don't magically know which voltage is being supplied.

Good Luck

Technician a says that a line condition protects a computer system from high-voltage surges and low-level voltages.technician b says that a surge suppressor protects a computer system from high-voltage...


Hi,
Line conditioners and surge protectors both help to prevent voltage in your devices from shooting up and damaging computers, game consoles, or other machines which use a power cable rather than batteries. In everyday use line conditioners can prevent changes from voltage in making the lights or dim or brighten, meaning you can have a consistent supply of 120 volts per second.
Surge protectors on the other hand are smaller and cheaper than line conditioners, these prevent high-voltage from being transmitted to your device, so excessive power doesn't cause your machine to die, or suffer catastrophe. Surge protectors needs to be replaced every few years so in the long run this can make them more expensive than line conditioners.

Motor is hooked up correctly according to directions Green ground, white nutral, red,high speed and black low speed. This motor was the replacement for a cal spa hot tub. The motor does not run on high...


You have 220v running into your motor, the red and the plack are in most cases the same 110v line and what your calling a white netural is a common line. In other words the second half of your 220v line. If your red and black are the two opposing 110v lines that make up your 220v and they are put on the motor and turned on they short aginst each other and blow the breaker. One of your 220v lines should come into your hi -low switch and then split to your high and low on the pump. The other half of your 220v line will go to the common or what your calling nuteral. The difference is a netural completes a 110v circut and a common completes the 220v circut it will take to run the motor. One of the splits will complete the low speed circut and the other will complete the high speed circut. You need to check your voltage comming into the spa, the way the spa is wired (110v-220v), and how the motor is wired (110v-220v). For your spa this will be in your owners manuel or on a scematic inside a panel or door and is quite often a plug you change from one spot to another. On your motor will have a scematic on the back of the motor that will tell you haw to adjust the wireing already in place on the wire board of the motor. This may sound deep but if all your voltages are set the same and your high and low are the same leg of power, this should fix your problem.

I have a dayton 1 1/2 h.p electric motor, and need the wiring diagram for 460 volt. the part number is [1] 3n013bb. thanks


Line is L1 L2 L3 to line voltage. wire nut 4-7 together wirenut 5-7 together and wirenut 6-9 together connect 123 to line for low voltage 123 together 456 together 679 together. This works on all dual voltage 3 phase motors. Some of the newer Daytom motors have a plug that you just turn for changing voltage. Rudty

Dimmer Installation


Dimmers should always be connected to line voltage (usually 120 volts). That is, when a dimmer is used to control a low voltage transformer it is always connected between the source of the power and the primary side (the line voltage side; the 120V side) of the transformer; it is never connected to the secondary side (the low voltage side; the 12V or 24V) of the transformer.
