I was just reviewing the drawings for a new generator system and saw that the 3 light ground detector will not be connected through PTs to the bus. Instead the lights will be connected directly to the bus with fuses and there will be a 5K 10 Watt resistor in between the lights and the push button. I understand these ungrounded systems aren't the norm but its what have to work with.
Has anybody seen a 3 light ground detector connected this way?
