1 Introduction

This instruction manual contains important information for safe operation of the Electrobloc. It is essential to read and to follow the given safety informa­tion.

The instruction manual should always be kept in the motorhome/caravan. All safety information must be passed on to other users.

W Failure to comply with this sign may lead to the endangerment of per­sons.

W   Failure to comply with this sign may damage the unit or the connected con­sumers.

W   This sign indicates recommendations or special features.

The reproduction, translation and duplication of this manual, even in parts, is not allowed without written authorization.

 

2 Safety information

The design of the Electrobloc is state-of-the-art and according to approved
safety technology. Nevertheless, if the safety information in this instruction
manual is not closely followed, persons might get injured or the unit might be
damaged.

Do not use the Electrobloc if it is not in technically good order and condition.

The instruction manual must be followed.
Any technical faults affecting the safety of persons or of the Electrobloc must
be dealt with immediately by qualified personnel.

W The electrical system of the motorhome or the caravan has to meet cur­rent DIN, VDE and ISO regulations. Manipulations of the electrical sys­tem will endanger the safety of persons and the vehicle, and are there­fore prohibited.

W Never make any modifications to the Electrobloc. W The connection may only be done by qualified personnel and must be carried out according to the installation instructions. W Electrical connections are to be carried out in tensionless condition only. W Risk of fatal injury due to electric shock or fire in the case of a defective mains cable or incorrect connection. W Risk of fatal injury! Never perform maintenance on the Electrobloc when it is live. W Blown fuses must only be replaced when the cause of the fault is known

and eliminated. W Never bridge or repair fuses. W Danger of burning! Blown fuses must only be changed on an zero-cur-rent Electrobloc.

W Only use original fuses rated as specified in the instruction manual. W Danger of burning! During operation the back of the Electrobloc gets hot. Do not touch. W To avoid voltage peaks during warm-up, do not connect the generator until it is running in a stable manner. Otherwise, the Electrobloc, 12 V consumers or other connected equipment might get damaged. It is essential that the generator complies with the mains supply specifica­tions. W The mains supply on board car ferries might not always be perfect. Therefore, never connect the Electrobloc to the mains on car ferries. Otherwise, the Electrobloc, 12 V consumers or other connected equip­ment might get damaged.

3 Description and appropriate use

The electrical management system Electrobloc EBL 209 B is designed for permanent installation in caravans.

The Electrobloc powers 12 V devices such as fans, submersible pumps and lamps, while the caravan is connected to the 230 V mains. If there is no 230 V mains power supply, the connected devices, with the exception of the awninglight, can be powered by the 12 V supply of the towing vehicle.

The system automatically switches to mains operation if there is a mains pow­er supply.

The refrigerator has a separate supply and is only powered by the 12 V supply of the towing vehicle when the ignition is on.

W The Electrobloc EBL 209 B is designed for use in caravans with no living area battery of their own, and may not be used for charging batteries.

The Electrobloc EBL 209 B consists of:

the power supply module

the 12 V distribution

fuses for the 12 V circuits The power supply module is a primary controlled switch-mode power supply. This modern switching technology achieves high output current at a compact size and low weight.

5.2 Power supply when not connected to mains

All consumers connected to the Electrobloc are powered via the 13-pin car­avan plug connector by the starter battery of the towing vehicle.
The refriger­ator is only powered when the ignition is on. The awning light is only powered when there is a mains connection.

Closed circuit current from When all connected consumers are switched off, there is no closed circuit starter battery current.

6 Operation

6.1 Operating controls

Flat vehicle fuses

W Blown fuses must only be replaced when the cause of the fault is known and eliminated. W Never bridge or repair fuses. W Danger of burning! Blown fuses must only be changed on an zero-cur-rent Electrobloc. W Only use original fuses rated as specified in the instruction manual.

The flat vehicle fuses protect the various circuits.
When necessary, take off the blue cover marked "FUSE" (optional) and check
or change the fuses.
 

Change-over relay     The change-over relay interrupts the connection to the starter battery of the towing vehicle when the caravan has a mains power supply.

If there is no mains power supply, the consumers are powered by the towing vehicle.

W When the caravan is not moving and remains connected to the towing vehicle, any consumers which are switched on may discharge the starter battery of the towing vehicle.


 

7 Maintenance

The Electrobloc EBL 209 B requires no maintenance.

Cleaning     Clean the Electrobloc with a soft, slightly damp cloth and mild detergent. Never use spirit, thinners or similar substances. Do not allow fluid to penetrate the inside of the Electrobloc.

8 Shutting down the system

Disconnecting the mains If you are not going to use the caravan for a lengthy period (for example over power supply the winter), disconnect the Electrobloc from the mains power supply: ³ Unplug the 230 V mains cable. ³ Switch the external mains fuse to "Off".

9 Technical faults, possible causes and remedies

If you are unable to solve a fault using the following tables, please contact ourcustomer service address.
If this is not possible, for example if you are abroad, you can have the Elec-
trobloc repaired at a specialist workshop.

Inexpert repairs invalidate the guarantee for the Electrobloc and Schaudt
GmbH takes no liability for any resulting damage.
