Alternator hook up question

We have an T444e five speed with a delco remi 22si alternator. Recently we got two 6V golf cart batteries and wired them in series for a small 12 v system. We want to charge them off the alternator so we bought an isolator.

Our question is if we hook up a battery isolator, does it require the ignition excitor switch to be hooked up? It didn't come with the hardware for that and online some people said it wasn't necessary.

If it is not required can we use an isolator with an excitor ignition terminal not hooked up, or does it need to be hooked up to function properly.

the model isolator in question is a miopro 95 c

Thanks

Sorry, let me clarify. I'm pretty confident that we can install the isolator and I've got a pretty good handle on how it works. My question is more specifically a hardware questoon. There are isolatora that do not have the ignition/exciter terminal. It seems from my research that whether or not this is required depends upon your type of alternator. What I'm unsure of is if my alternator requires it. Also if not, is it a moot point because the isolator needs to be hooked up to the ignition. And lastly, if my alternator is compatible with ano isolator without an exciter, is it a problem if I hook it up anyway.
