ITS LARGEST GEN-SET
New 10 kW EB10000 tops Industrial Series; rental, construction, industrial markets targeted
Honda Power Equipment has introduced its all-new EB10000 Industrial Series
generator, now the most powerful
Honda generator and the company’s
flagship model. The Honda EB10000
generator, with a maximum output
of 10 kW, is powered by a Honda
GX630 V-twin gasoline engine.
The gen-set includes a range of
design features that includes a nar-row-shaped design, a centralized
exhaust mechanism and a newly
The company’s newest model is
being targeted by Honda for industrial
and commercial applications, including construction-related job-site work
as well as the rental markets.
A new digital auto voltage regulator
(DAVR) is integrated into the design
of the EB10000 generator. The DAVR
functions to improve the output capability of the gen-set, holding the voltage stable to ±1% over time during standard operation, Honda said.
The DAVR adjustments are driven
off the main winding versus a sensor winding, with a built-in temperature protection system. In addition,
the DAVR configuration has a built-in self-diagnosis function to prevent
abnormal voltage and engine speed
from exceeding 4140 rpm for longer
than three seconds. A power coil,
installed under the flywheel, provides
the power supply for the DAVR.
The EB10000 generator also incorporates a patented frame design that
clearly delineates its hot and cool
operating parts, Honda said. This configuration allows the generator’s battery and control panel elements to be
positioned in the model’s cool zone.
The generator also includes the
i-Monitor digital operation system
(with lighting) through which the
operator can see at a glance the
state of the conditions being monitored. Conditions include total used
hours, generating voltage (when error
detected), battery condition, oil alert
and an auto voltage regulator error
code. The generator also has a one-touch, removable plastic top cover for
battery access and maintenance.
Honda said the Industrial Series
model operates at approximately 72
dB(A) at 23 ft. This noise level is
achieved through a large muffler that
includes a punching pipe, a perforated mechanism that allows for the
smooth release of exhaust gas.
The new gen-set is 55. 9 in. long,
27. 7 in. wide and 35. 1 in. high. Dry
weight is listed as 401 lb.
