That isolates the engine's 12vDC system from the bonding system, but doesn't isolate it from the 220VAC system.

There's a solenoid (relay) in the positive feed to the starter motor and also one in the negative feed. They both close when the start button is activated and for that brief time the battery negative is connected to the generator frame, when the generator starts and the start button is released, the realys open and the negative is isolated from the generator frame.
Its the same system on the main engine.
