HONDA GENERATORS EU1000i – EU2000i – EU3000i

Updated Oct 20, 2010

Computers and other power sensitive electronic equipment require consistent electrical current that has a stable sine wave or signal.  A computer not receiving this type of power could possibly freeze, shut down, or be interrupted.  To overcome this problem, Honda engineers developed a revolutionary form of inverter technology. This process takes the raw power produced by the generator and passes it through a special microprocessor that provides ultra-clean power with a sine wave equal to or better than AC current from a standard household wall outlet. 

All Honda EU series generators feature inverter technology. These super quiet series generators feature a totally enclosed body that results in noticeably quieter performance which make them ideal for camping, RVing, home backup, public events or any situation where quiet operation is critical.    

Honda’s advanced inverter technology makes the EU model generators extremely lightweight and portable.  EU models also deliver great fuel efficiency due to the exclusive Eco-Throttle system which automatically adjusts engine speed to the optimum level, given the usage load, through a load-dependent speed control-type governor. This not only results in excellent fuel economy, but also makes a quiet generator even quieter.   For extra power demands, two identical EU generators can be linked in parallel to increase available wattage through the generator outlets.
