How it Works?

Inside the inverter Generator is a delivery of clean power which is needed for sensitive electronic equipment such as computers so that a stable signal is given. The digital inverter system regulates raw power from the engine alternator into pure electricity to safely power sensitive electronic devices and appliances. It receives rough AC and varying frequency from the engine alternator. The AC is converted to DC and then converts to clean AC in the digital invertor unit. What you get in the result is then a clean AC power of 230V 50Hz pure sine wave clean power for caravans, camping and motor homes and overall a simple to use source of portable power at your disposal.

Part 3: Safety and Assembly Tips

Safety Tips and Features:

This machine has an impressive range of safety features built in such as the digital overload protection and also the low oil shutdown which will prevent any overloading or engine failure due to low oil levels. You can visually monitor the key functions and levels with the LCD display to make sure it is fully operational and trouble free. Another thing also is the fact that there is no messy mixing of fuels either as all you have to do is add fresh unleaded petrol when needed. The main parts, functions and their locations for this generator are outlined in the image below.

The main safety tips to note when using this Generator is as follows:

  1. Never use in an enclosed area as the engine exhaust contains carbon monoxide – always use outdoors in a well-ventilated area
  2. Always stop the generator before refueling again and it should be kept 1 meter away from all other equipment or tools.
  3. It should always be placed on a level surface to avoid it overturning and spilling fuel and do not let the generator come into contact with rain, water or snow.

All of the assembly steps and a quick start guide is provided for you in the box and some of the main steps involved are outlined in the sliding images provided below which can give you a sneak preview before you buy.

  1. My generator arrived promptly, well packaged. It arrived with engine oil and fuel funnel but no leads or connectors. Once the oil was put in via the side cover and fuel added it started promptly. I have only test run it with a 2kw kettle connected which boiled successfully.
