Refer to the Input Connector Diagram & the Electrical Requirements.

If I was installing one I think I would add a fusible link at the battery in the breaker-to-battery wire connection.
The reason they (LSE) wants it that way is to prevent noise (hence the shielded power wires), with little/no concern for aircraft safety or standard practices.
And I agree, a fusible link would also be an acceptable method of protecting the wiring.
