GENERAL INFORMATION

Consumers incorporate to the plusovy power supply a wire, and with minus - through a car body (weight). Such method allows to reduce number of wires and to simplify installation. On cars low-served or unattended accumulators are established.

The electric system has a 12-tivoltovy food with negative grounding and the generator, a starter, consumers of the electric power and electric chains consists of the accumulator.

The battery charging is made from the generator which is put in action by a belt from a pulley of a cranked shaft. The starter represents the electric motor of a direct current with the mixed excitement with the electromagnetic traction relay. At start the traction relay moves a leading gear wheel to gearing with a gear wreath of a flywheel before the starter will receive a food from the accumulator. After engine start the coupling of a free wheeling disconnects a starter anchor from a gear wreath of a flywheel.

Precautions

At works on electric system it is necessary to be careful not to damage the semi-conductor device (diodes and transistors). At work on electric system it is necessary to fulfill the following requirements:

 – in operating time of the engine do not disconnect the accumulator, the generator of an alternating current or any electric sockets;
 – at carrying out any works remove the negative plug from the accumulator;
 – at carrying out electrowelding works on the car, disconnect the generator of an alternating current and the control device.
