    Low/high line bus Bus voltage outside spec window—latching alarm LED
    Over-temperature Over-temp condition—latching alarm LED preceded by non-fault warning (user setting)
    Output power range All generators except the HALO will allow setpoints between 1% and 100% of full scale. The exception is the HALO 1.5k generator depicted by “L” in position 2 of the PIN number. This allows setpoints from 5 W to 1,500 W
