A Look at the Honda EU1000i Generator
Honda Generators has come up with what they claim a super quiet generator model, the EU1000i. This model has become the official generator of several events, like the Daytona International Speedway Race, the 2005 Air Venture in Oshkosh, and the Albuquerque Fiesta Celebration among others.
The Honda EU1000i is an inverter-type generator. An inverter has the ability to power up several appliances at the same time on a stable power output. It is safe to run a personal computer with this generator series. This model is best used outdoors. Activities like picnics and camping are ideal applications. With this device, your outdoor activities will never be the same again. You will now have stand-in power to run electric devices and light up the recreation area. Going outside will be as comfortable as being indoors.
This model is also powerful enough to be your standby power at home. For those areas where power failures are frequent, the EU1000i will be the excellent solution to that. This small, easy to carry generator has 1000 watts of power readily available for you to make your home appliances function even if your electric power is out.
This super quiet generator has a single cylinder 1.8 HP engine with a displacement of 50 cc. Voltage input is 120 Volts and voltage output is at 12 Volts. It has recoil as its starting system. Its fuel tank can hold 0.6 gallons of gasoline which runs for 3.8 hours on rated load and 8.3 hours if run on ¼ load capacity. It is 17.7 inches long, 9.4 inches wide and 15 inches tall, with a dry weight of 29 pounds. Since it is super quiet, it only produces 59 dB of noise running on rated load and 53 dB when on ¼ load. The EU1000i has advanced features and benefits that make it a notch above the competition.
Honda has integrated into this model an overhead valve engine that is easy-starting and reliable while meeting emission standards. This model is very compact and lightweight and can be carried around in one hand. This is the reason why this model is recommended for outdoor use. For enhanced customer experience, Honda has incorporated a chipset that takes the power of the generator and converts it to an ultra-clean power that is way better than the common household power quality. Honda boasts that this model also has low fuel consumption compared to others. Consumers will save a lot with this generator. This is because of the high-efficiency motor they use in this model to automatically control the engines speed matching the power needs of the devices connected to it. This is made possible by Hondas Eco Throttle System. This is the system effectively lowers the generators fuel consumption.
Along with lower fuel consumption, noise is also reduced, and exhaust emissions are minimized to comply with government standards. Honda also has introduced parallel operation of generators. This means that two generators can combine energies together. This is like using two batteries together for added voltage and longer life.Like all other Honda generators, the EU1000i is also equipped with an Oil Alert System that causes the engine to automatically shut down once the oil reaches a critical level. Consequently, this prevents further damages on the engine and possible overheating. Another thing common to all Honda generators is the USDA-Qualified Spark Arrestor/Muffler.
This simple device aids in the prevention of fires. Other features of the EU1000i model include the electronic ignition system, the capability to be used either with alternating current or direct current, the switch controls for engine and fuel and valve on and off, and the fully enclosed packaging to add to its quiet operation.
The EU1000i can be bought with enhancements like the water resistant storage cover to protect the generator, the DC charging cord that enables the generator to be charged with a 12 volt battery, and parallel cables to connect this model to another similar system to combine power. The EU1000i comes with a 2-year warranty if used in homes and one year if used commercially. Upon purchase, a users manual is included to guide its users.
The model usually comes in red color and costs about USD $789.95. For your safety, always take time to read the manual and follow the safety precautions including the proper way of using the equipment. Honda ensures the ease of handling of this generator. However, end users are responsible for any misuse.
Consumers are advised not to place this generator in an enclosed area. All generators need proper ventilation and a minimum of 4 feet spacing on its four sides. It is also advised to place the generator away from the home or buildings window as the exhaust coming from it could enter those. The EU1000i generator is ideal for home and industrial use. It is dependable, and managing it is uncomplicated. This model is highly recommended. So for your alternative power source, you now know which one to get.
