The TriPac Engine On/Off switch is located inside the TriPac APU housing on the right side of the frame. This
switch must be in the ON position for the TriPac system to operate.
• If the TriPac Engine On/Off switch is OFF, no A/C Mode, Fan Mode or battery charging is available. Heat
Mode is available, but the TriPac evaporator fans can not be used for supplemental air circulation.
• If the TriPac Engine On/Off switch is OFF and the TriPac HMI Control Panel APU On/Off key is pressed,
an [Eng] Alarm Code will be set.
The Engine On/Off switch also functions as a service switch. It allows maintenance personnel to disable the APU
engine, even if the Main Power On/Off key is on

The table below shows the TriPac Alarm Codes. If an alarm condition occurs the alarm codes will be shown on
the HMI Control Panel Display and the red System Fault LED will be illuminated. See Section 5 of this manual for
additional information.

Clearing Alarm Codes

condition that caused the alarm and turn the HMI Control Panel Main Power On/Off key back on.
