  • Low harmonic distortion generator with all-copper windings supplies high-quality power with less than 5% THD.
  • The lead-acid battery charges itself when the generator is running.
  • It has a smart alternator with an automatic voltage regulator (AVR) that adjusts the engine speed to the load without dropping power to other appliances that can damage the product.
  • The control panel is located on one side for easy operation. Use the LED-display to check volts, hertz, running hours and total hours.
