Inverter Generators

Super Quiet Series Generators

Honda inverter technology means stable, clean power in a smaller, lighter package.

You can even operate the most sensitive electronics without fear of interruption. Inverter technology is available on seven Honda generators; look for an “i” after the model number. Computers and power-sensitive testing equipment require what is referred to as “clean power.” Clean power is electrical current that is consistent and has a stable “sine wave” or signal.

If the lights or other basic appliances in your home were being powered by a generator and there was a fluctuation in the AC power, you’d probably see the lights flicker – no problem! However, if your computer was being powered by a generator and the voltage fluctuated, chances are the computer would either shut down or at least interrupt the program you were working in. In order 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.

This means you can operate a computer or other sensitive equipment from a remote location without the fear of interrupted service or damage to the equipment. Using inverter technology, Honda engineers have integrated parts from the engine and generator set, such as the combination flywheel/alternator. This results in a more compact and lighter product that is purpose-built to make clean, reliable power.


Eco-Throttle™ System

Honda's Eco-Throttle™ System offers great fuel economy, quiet operation and low emission levels. Exclusive to all inverter models. Honda’s Eco-Throttle™ system 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. Eco-Throttle™ is standard on all inverter models.
