READ AND SAVE THESE INSTRUCTIONS
IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS

WARNING - For General Ventilating Use Only. Do Not Use to Exhaust Hazardous or Explosive Materials and Vapors.
WARNING - TO REDUCE THE RISK OF FIRE, ELECTRIC SHOCK OR INJURY TO PERSONS, OBSERVE THE FOLLOWING:
Use this unit only in the manner intended by the manufacturer. If you have any questions, contact the manufacturer.

All electrical connections to this fan must be made in an approved type junction box. This junction box must be permanently attached to the fan at the point where the motor wires exit the metal duct pipe. The junction box must be reliably mounted to prevent it from shifting or rotating. The junction box can be attached with 2 or more sheet metal screws, rivets or machine screws with a nut and lock washer. Power to the fan must be supplied following all applicable building and electrical codes.

Before Servicing Or Cleaning Unit, Switch Power Off At Service Panel And Lock Service Panel To Prevent Power From Being Switched On Accidentally. When The Service Disconnecting Means Cannot Be Locked, Securely Fasten A Prominent Warning Device, Such As A Tag To The Service Panel.

Suncourt Inc. does not provide electrical connection information.
For your safety and protection follow all instructions and adhere to applicable building and electrical codes.

EXPOSURE TO AIRFLOW TEMPERATURES EXCEEDING 140°F WILL PERMANENTLY DESTROY THE ELECTRIC MOTOR, VOIDING THE WARRANTY

NEVER EXPOSE YOUR IN-LINE DUCT FANTM TO TEMPERATURES OVER 140°F (60°C)

IMPORTANT WARNING

Due to the power of a booster fan, adequate protective measures must be taken to avoid contact with the impeller blades. In-Line Duct Fans are designed to boost only dry (ambient) heated or cooled airflow in ducts of forced air systems with temperatures between 40°F (4°C) and 140°F (60°C). Suncourt Inc. accepts no responsibility for use of this product in other applications.

ELECTRICAL CONNECTIONS AND WIRING

WARNING - To Reduce The Risk Of Fire, Electrical Shock Or Injury To Persons, Observe The Following:

Installation work and electrical wiring must be done by qualified person(s) in accordance with all applicable codes and standards, including fire-rated construction.

Your In-Line Duct Fan must be connected to a 110/120 Volt AC, 60Hz fuse or circuit breaker protected power source only in a manner approved by all applicable codes. Never connect your In-Line Duct Fan to a 240 Volt AC blower motor or other 240 Volt system.

All electrical connections to this fan must be made in an approved junction box. This junction box must be permanently attached to the fan at the point where the motor wires exit the metal duct pipe. The junction box must be reliably mounted to prevent it from shifting or rotating. The junction box can be attached with 2 or more sheet metal screws, rivets or machine screws with a nut and lock washer. Power to the fan must be supplied following all applicable building and electrical codes.

The ground wire (GREEN) must be terminated at the furnace or other suitable ground. The power source must be protected by a fuse or circuit breaker rated at a minimum of 15 amperes.

You may also supply power to your In-Line Duct Fan using the Suncourt DuctStat® Temperature Sensitive Switch or a standard on/off switch (Purchased Separately).

Operating range is 40°F (4°C) to 140°F (60°C). Exposure to temperatures outside this range voids the warranty.

GENERAL INSTALLATION NOTES

For maximum performance and minimum noise, the best location to install your In-Line Duct Fan is 6 - 10 feet from the register that needs the boost.
To prevent air leaks use a good quality duct tape to seal seams in the ductwork after installing the In-Line Duct Fan.
By utilizing tapered reducers you may install larger diameter duct fans in smaller diameter ducts.
Always leave your In-Line Duct Fan accessible for maintenance, cleaning or repair.

VARIABLE SPEED CONTROL

The In-Line Duct Fans can be speed controlled using a Suncourt solid state speed control (Purchased Separately). Please visit www.suncourt.com anytime or during business hours you may phone 1-800-999-3267 for information regarding the appropriate speed control for your In-Line Duct Fan model.

NEVER USE A RHEOSTAT TO CONTROL FAN SPEED.
