    Q:should this generator actually output 240V@60hz for the 30A L14-30R outlet? and 120V@60hz for the standard household 20A duplex outlets? thanks

    Answer This Question

    A:  Randy - The rated frequency on all outputs is 60Hz. The Rated current for 120V is 45.8A & 22.9A at 240 volts. The AC circuit breaker is 27A. If I could attach a technical spec sheet here I would. Thank you for your question.

    by|Apr 5, 2024

      A:  Hi Randy, Yes, that’s correct.

        Q:is the 240Volt, 30Amp 4-Prong outlet a NEMA L14-30Locked Plug that's RV compliant?

        Answer This Question

        A:  Randy - Yes the L14-30 125/250V 30 Amp 4 prong twist lock plug is built to NEMA standards and is RV Compliant. The 3 prong L5-30 is only a 125V outlet. Thank you for your question.

          Q:is the power output pure sine waves, which is utility and power company quality and will it damage my electronics like my television and computer?
          by|Feb 14, 2024
          1 Answer
          Answer This Question

          A:  John - The EM6500 generator can power the common applications. Fridge, microwave, furnace, TV & computers. Honda's exclusive iAVR technology ensures a consistent flow of power regardless of the load. This translates into stable power for sensitive equipment and a more reliable power source for you. But if you are really concerned about power fluctuations and damaging electronics, I would suggest the Honda EU7000isNAN model. Honda's inverter technology means stable, clean power in a smaller, lighter package. The precision of Honda's inverter technology ensures our inverter generators produce power that is as reliable as the power you get from your outlets at home. Thank you for your question.

              Don’t get caught without one!
              This Honda generator and Reliance manual transfer swtich work great together. Easy to operate and understand. I’m running 5 circuits which include the fridge and furnace with no issues. Transferring power from line to generator is just a flip of the switch literally. Noisy but less noisy than a gas mower.
