Connecting your generator to the grid

Power companies require that you disconnect your generator from the grid whenever grid power is lost or goes out of spec. (This is different from the function of a generator 'transfer' switch.)
The Beckwith M-3410 Intertie/Generator Protection Relay is 'approved' to perform this function.

This is basically a computer in a box that monitors voltage, frequency & currents and opens or closes contacts when anything goes outside of programmable limits. You will need an additional contactor (relay) to carry the main current between your generator and the grid. The 3410 will control the 'coil' of this relay.

The M-3410 can also display and track voltages, currents, kWhrs and much more information on a connected computer.

You will also need a little more circuitry for a system with added features, like possible off grid operation or high voltage transmission (480V) for longer distances to the power house.

LENR... is it cold fusion after all?

I see the strength of this whole 'new energy' business growing to the point where they are no longer afraid to call it what it is, cold fusionand go up against the likes of MIT and NASA with real practical working devices. Maybe theory will follow but let's not wait. The (E)cat is out of the bag. It is time to get this out into the mainstream. See LINKS below for direct access to original sources. -  Rob -
Hank Mills sees the recent NASA video endorsing LENR as a spin attempt, pushing the Widom Larsen theory, which takes the "fusion" out of cold fusion; as a way to diminish the blowback on the political and scientific establishment who have been denigrating cold fusion for two decades. What will people think when they realize cold fusion is legitimate after all, and we could have had it 20+ years ago?
Hank's Preface / Disclaimer: The following commentary is very harsh against NASA and other entities. For the record, I want to make it clear that I do not think every single employee of these organizations has been actively working to suppress cold fusion research. However, I think it is obvious many highly influential and powerful individuals in these agencies have been doing so, along with certain of their underlings who do not oppose the agenda they are told to follow. If I ever hear a prominent NASA scientist openly condemn the suppression of cold fusion research (while using the term cold fusion) that has taken place for the past twenty years, I will adjust my views about that specific individual's motives.

We reported yesterday about a two-minute, non-technical video clip on Low Energy Nuclear Reactions (LENR), previously called "cold fusion", that has been uploaded to the NASA technology gateway website. It features senior research scientist at NASA Langley, Joseph Zawodny describing the new world that is possible from the Ni and H fusion science presently emerging.

After over twenty years of successful cold fusion experiments (numbering in the thousands) being performed by hundreds of scientists around the world, it seems NASA has finally started the process of lifting their heads out of the sand about the phenomena. However, it seems obvious to me they did not "wake up" on their own accord, but were suddenly jolted to alertness by the reality of Andrea Rossi's E-Cat (Energy Catalyzer) technology, which began to emerge into public awareness almost exactly a year ago.

Now, as we speak, Andrea Rossi is preparing for the launch of one million E-Cat units, designed for use in homes and businesses beginning this next Autumn. At the same time, he is continuing to complete the order for 13 one megawatt systems for an undisclosed branch of the US military. Also, there are multiple competitors in the fray as well, some trying to to figure out how his reactors work, some developing their own variations, and some modifying his system market as their own. From what I can gather from my sources, some people within NASA -- Never A Straight Answer -- have been in that fray, and the institution at large has begun to take notice about what is taking place. If they did not, they would eventually face massive criticism for ignoring such developments.

Regardless of the fact that NASA likes to represent itself as an open and honest agency that has the public's best interests in mind, they are part of the military-industrial complex. Many of their employees also have direct connections to the mainstream scientific community, and modern academia. Historically, these cult-like entities have been involved in the suppression of cold fusion technology ever since the era of Pons and Fleishman.

If it were not for the direct efforts of suppression by academic institutions such as MIT [see our story], government agencies like the Department of Energy, and hot fusion scientists desperate to maintain their careers; cold fusion technologies like the E-Cat could have already been on the market a decade or more ago. Instead, our civilization has been forced to continually depend on expensive and polluting energy sources -- at the cost of human lives. It's hard now to put numbers to such things because we don't yet know fully how much of a difference these technologies will make, and we won't know until they reach market penetration. Then it will become obvious how much better life could have been, so much sooner, had these things not been suppressed. The individuals and entities that have contributed to the suppression of cold fusion technology have blood on their hands. How much, will be for future tribunals to determine.

These crimson stains are not going to wash off easily. The repeated and ongoing efforts to suppress cold fusion are well documented. However, NASA is already scrubbing furiously to remove them, by promoting the "Widom-Larsen" theory. By advocating this unproven, highly disputed, and illogical theory, they can falsely assert that there are no "fusion" processes taking place in "cold fusion" systems. By doing so, it may be possible for them to distract the public from looking at the history of the situation. Even more importantly, they may be able to avoid reaping the consequences of their actions, or in some cases, inactions. In addition, by giving cold fusion a very different sounding name (Low Energy Nuclear Reactions), they can further avoid people finding out about their past deeds.

When you combine their tactics of promoting a highly disputed theory (which is only one such theory out of many possible theories) with their usage of the term LENR, their agenda becomes pretty clear. The following is a list of what I think they are trying to achieve by desperately trying to take the "fusion" out of cold fusion.
  • Erase the history of cold fusion suppression by MIT and other academic institutions. For example, the use of biased hot fusion scientists to perform tests, the altering of data, parties to support the "death" of cold fusion before replication attempts were even complete, etc. (Link)
  • Prevent the public from realizing that while futile "hot fusion" research obtained billions of dollars of funding, the DOD and DOE refused to provide funding for cold fusion research.
  • Stop the public from realizing the extent of "pathological skepticism" in the scientific community, which has contributed to the suppression of cold fusion technology.
  • Protect the jobs of thousands of hot fusion researchers. The fact is with cheap cold fusion technology, there is no reason for billion dollar hot fusion research to continue. By using the term LENR and promoting a theory that indicates there is no fusion in "cold fusion", they can try to protect these jobs.
  • Try to wipe clean the blood stains on the hands of the academic world, government agencies, and the military-industrial complex. They don't want the masses to realize that countless human deaths are the result of their suppression of cold fusion technology. Of course human deaths are not the only consequence. They are also partly to blame for high energy prices, the current global recession, and the massive amount of pollution that has been emitted into the biosphere.
The motivations of NASA are not so mysterious to some who are familiar with the history of cold fusion. They are perfectly happy with the status quo, and would not be investigating cold fusion (what they call LENR) if they had not been forced to do so by some of the white-hats among them. Since they have no other choice, they are trying to "spin" the reality of cold fusion in a way that will benefit them the most, and conceal the past.

If the space agency was truly composed of open minded scientists who supported the advancement of technology (especially those that hold the promise of improving our civilization) they would not have waited this long to admit the reality of cold fusion. Instead, they are only now coming around to taking it seriously, after years of suppression. If cold fusion is going to emerge, they want it to be on their terms.

If it were not for Andrea Rossi's efforts to turn cold fusion technology into a practical technology capable of producing large amounts of output, I don't think there would currently be a fraction of the interest in the phenomena. The entire alternative energy community owes him a great debt for the sacrifices he has made and his courage and tenacity in the process of developing and doggedly pursuing the technology.

Let's hope the public will not be manipulated by NASA and other entities that do not have their best interests at heart. We must remember the past, and hold those who have suppressed cold fusion accountable, in a peaceful and lawful way. We must not let the forces of darkness take the fusion, out of cold fusion.
