November, 2001 1 512-0023-01-01_rev1 Safety Bulletin PROsine™ 1000/1800 Inverters (Hard-wire versions) Shock Hazard Due to Missing Neutral-to-Ground Bonding Wire Overview The 120 Vac output PROsine 1000 and PROsine 1800 inverters are designed with the output neutral connected to ground, as required by Canadian and U.S. electrical codes and standards. Xantrex has discovered a manufacturing error in certain models that resulted in this Neutral-to-Ground (N-G) “bonding wire” being omitted. As a result, the neutral voltage may rise above ground, creating a shock hazard, even though the unit appears to be functioning normally. Xantrex has corrected the manufacturing error and removed as many of the faulty products as possible from the distribution chain. However, some of the affected products have reached customers and are in service. Xantrex is providing easy-to- install repair kits to customers so they may fix the defect themselves. Alternatively, Xantrex will repair the PROsine inverters for those customers who do not want to install the kit. In the meantime, this Safety Bulletin explains the problem, outlines the conditions that create a hazard, states what precautions to take, and lists the serial numbers of affected inverters. Applicability This bulletin applies only to PROsine 1000 and PROsine 1800 inverters with 120 Vac output, 12 Vdc or 24 Vdc input, and with the “hard-wire” output style option, manufactured between May and September, 2001.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
