   1. SAFETY RECOMMENDATIONS 

General safety recommendations

• 

Only qualified electricians are allowed to install the 

inverter.

•  Make sure the installation site is not accessible to 

children or non-authorized personnel.

•  Remove metal accessories such as rings or bracelets 

before installation and electrical connection to avoid 
electric shock.

Product safety recommendations

•  Do not put and install the inverter on or close to 

combustible materials. 

•  Install the inverter far from devices with strong 

electromagnetic interference. 

•  To avoid product damage, ensure the inverter input 

voltage does not exceed the maximum input voltage.

•  Ensure a stable installation and a reliable electrical 

connection, as well as proper grounding of the inverter; 
improper connection or no grounding may cause the 
inverter to stop functioning.

•  To avoid irreparable damage, ensure that the positive 

and negative poles of solar modules are not grounded.
