Before choosing a Honda Generator 5000 watts, it is also important to consider the power output of the generator. The voltage regulation is the one that controls the generator’s power output. It is very important to have consistent power from the generator since the power fluctuations may cause damages or shut down to the appliances.
That is why you should make sure that you choose the best generator with great quality of power output. There are some different generator’s voltage regulated in each product, such as :
The brushless generators are the common type found in the industry for the low cost construction. However, such generators have the lowest reliable control of voltage. This type of generator also cannot react the charging load.
It only produces low power or high power. As the result of the power fluctuations, this generator type often cause damages in equipment. Yet, there is no Honda 5000 watts in brushless type.
Automatic Voltage Regulator (AVR)
AVR is a design that can control the voltage consistently. Many generators of Honda are designed with this feature included. The output voltage is more constant with this feature so that no brownouts or spikes resulted.
Digital Automatic Voltage Regulator (DAVR)
DAVR is a feature that works to stabilize the voltages so it is always in about 1% change as long as the generator operation to 60hZ (as US standard). Besides, this feature also works to drive off main winding and sensor winding. It also will protect the generator from thermistor’s overheating. Kinds of Honda 5000 watts also come with this feature.
Intelligent Automatic Voltage Regulator (iAVR)
It is an exclusive new technology of Honda that consists of a self-tuning regulator, a digital capacitive discharge ignition, transformer installed to auto throttle as well as the new control unit of DAVR.
This feature enables the generator to work well higher than the maximum rating in about10 seconds so that the high initial amp can be started. It will make the power flows consistently so that reliable power produced and the equipment will be protected.
It is a patented technology of Honda that gives you cleaner power and less weight. Generators in AVR type has lower weight and size by having this feature.
The featuring of Inverters enable the generators producing cleanest power. A honda 5000 inverter generator with this feature will become your best choice if you are going to operate the generator to power up sensitive electronics like computers.
The generators have less noise, higher efficiency of fuel consumption, and lower weight rather than the more traditional generators. The EU series of Honda Generator are mostly featured with inverter technology, for the details you can check in generator manual.
