Can anyone tell me why the battery leads (23, 194, and 0) only contain (2) leads in the smaller generators? Was installing one today and I'd like to find out. Thanks.

Not sure quite what you're asking. Sometimes you need 0 sometimes not.
It comes with the pre made Greenfield whip with feeders and control wiring.

N1, N2, T1 are there, but the battery leads only have (2) conductors.

Normally they have (3) as I'm sure you are well aware of.

What is 0 in reference to the battery wiring?

I got your point. The transfer switches that have the subpanels in them don't need the zero or ground reference. The corepower models do. In order for load shedding to work in the "whole house" transfer types, you do.

Oh, I see. So the 0 is required for the load shedding module ATS's. Gotcha!

This one doesn't have the load shedding capability.

Thanks for the help! :thumbsup:

I've seen guys leave it out sometimes when it's needed and stuff didn't work. Don't forget about it though , things change with this stuff all the time and who knows next years model may be different.

Those are the leads you need to power the ATS when it needs to switch over..

Example.. you have (2) 200a ATS side by side.. one is master.. other is slave...

Master has (6) leads connected to it...

You run 23 - 194 - 0 - from master to slave and that makes slave unit work upon power failure...
