Install FWC

page-note p.5 (see manual)
/img/5.InstallFWC-1.FWC.svg

Dry wall near panel (for recessed panels) There must be at least 15.5” x 5.5” x 5.5” space near the panel on drywall. In this section, the mounting plate for the Data Transmitter will be installed only. FWC installation will come at a later stage.

  1. Select location for mounting plate on dry wall near panel.
  2. Create a hole in the drywall large enough to allow the entire 3/4” conduit connector to pass through. NOTE: Hole should not be greater than 1.9” diameter.
  3. Look for an existing 3/4” knockout in the panel or create a new 3/4” knockout, using the knockout punch or a power drill with a hole cutter.
  4. Attach a 3⁄4” conduit connector to one end of conduit.NOTE: Conduit should be sized 4-6” longer than the required length to connect panel and drywall holes.
  5. Route conduit through drywall and secure connector to panel via locknut.NOTE: The free end of conduit should stick out of the drywall hole.
  6. Attach3/4”conduit connector to the free end of conduit.
  7. Fasten connector to the internal threads of the mounting plate.
  8. Once conduit is secured to the mounting plate, use 4 drywall screws and anchors to attach mounting plate onto drywall.

Voltage Taps

page-note p.6-7 (see manual)

Select one breaker per phase of panel to tap.

using spare breakers
using wired breakers

If you do not have one spare breaker on each voltage phase, you will need to briefly shut down the voltage tap breakers to complete this step. Please confirm with building operators that this will not interfere with operations or safety protocols. Please follow local jurisdiction requirements for tap installs.

Ensure the breakers are turned off. Connect 2 voltage tap cables to breakers.

Wire The Neutral

Attach the white voltage tap cable to the neutral bar.

Route Wires

Route wires through knockout and into the FWC.

Powering Data Transmitter

Turn breakers used for voltage tap on. The light ring will light up after up to 30 seconds.

If blinking red, check Service Panel and go to check installation manual “Troubleshooting” section.

A pulsing white light indicates that the system is working correctly.
