Honda EU55is Ultra-Quiet Generator

The new EU55is, an ultra-quiet, high-output electrical generator (rated output: 5.5kVA) from Honda Motor Co., Ltd. capable of simultaneous 100V and 200V single-phase1 current output. The EU55is employs Honda’s original sine-wave inverter technology to deliver high-quality electrical output in a compact, low-noise design. Its ability to simultaneously output 100V and 200V single-phase current makes it ideal for both commercial and emergency use. In addition, noise reduction measures including double-layer soundproof construction for the engine compartment and a tri-compartment configuration with separate intake, engine, and exhaust compartments for improved liquid cooling and a significant reduction in intake and exhaust noise combine to place the EU55is at the top of its class2 for low-noise operation.

Not only Honda EU55i can be used for powering computer equipment, as an emergency power source, and for leisure activities, it is also capable of powering large electrical tools, 200V household appliances, and other heavy-duty power equipment. The new generator will go on sale starting December 1, 2006 at Honda power product dealers throughout Japan, with subsequent release to North American and European markets beginning in January 2007.
