I didn't power up the inverter yet. It was dark and it was time to put the house ac line from generator plug to the panel. So I unplugged the house from generator. Took the plug off the wire. Wired the house into the system. Had the line for the ac-in to inverter already wired in to the panel. Had the spd already wired in. Because there was people inside without power I turned on the power. Keeping in mind that there was no more wiring to be done inside the panel. I had the ac-in breaker turned off. So to my knowledge there was no reason for my ac-in wire to have any power what so ever and now all I needed to do is put the plug end onto the ac-in to inverter wire so I could plug in the generator to send power to the inverter from generator. And while wiring the plug end to the plug that is when the spark started. And after that point I tested it with the meter and it still carried 90v from positive-negative of the live-in wire. It stayed with power up until the point where I disconnected the spd... I did all my work without power into the box or panel. My breaker that might allow back feed of power was turned off. The thing that allowed power to pass thru the system to the line that shocked me was the connection inside the spd. So in my mind the spd was faulty and it put me into the situation of being hurt/injured. (My pride is hurtn I am not hurt.) So i should of said from the get go in better wording how i was working. Is their a true schematic of the spd that we can look over to see what may of done this? I would disassemble the unit but I want to get a replacement if it was truly defective.
