How to Size and Select Generators

The following data will be helpful in determining the proper size generator for your application. These nominal watts are approximate. If you do not know your tool’s wattage, multiply volts x amperage to find wattage (Volts x Amps = Watts). Most electric motors require a much higher starting current than running current. As a rule, you require three times the running current for starting electric motors.

Honda Super Quiet Inverter Generators

Honda’s newest and most technologically advanced line of generators. The Honda engines that power this new EU series are user-friendly and clean running; well within the world’s strictest emission regulations. The EU series is also super quiet, featuring an all-new noise reducing design comprised of a cube-shaped soundproofing box around the engine. The Honda Inverter Technology makes this generator ideally suited for use with sensitive electronics (e.g., computer, fax, printer, and telephone, and stereo) because the generator produces a clean sine wave of energy that prevents surging.  These generators are ultra-lightweight for true portability. Finally, a load-dependent control-type electronic governor maximizes fuel economy by automatically maintaining engine speed at the optimum level given the usage load.
