Honda this week launched its all-new EB10000 Industrial Series generator at the World of Concrete, now the most powerful Honda generator and the company’s flagship model.
The Honda EB10000 generator, with a maximum output of 10,000 watts, is compact, lightweight and features a range of design innovations. These include a narrow-shaped design; a centralized exhaust mechanism; a newly developed alternator; and improved fuel efficiency and lower noise. The company’s newest model is designed for industrial and commercial applications, including construction-related job site work. The unit is a fit for the rental market, where users demand the most reliable power for a variety of applications.
The new digital auto voltage regulator is an exclusive Honda feature integrated into the design of the EB10000 generator. The DAVR functions to improve the output capability of the new model, holding the voltage stable within 1 percent over time during standard operation. The DAVR adjustments are driven off the main winding versus a sensor winding in conventional AVR systems, 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 4,140 rpm for longer than three seconds. A power coil, installed under the flywheel, provides a power supply for the DAVR.
The technologically advanced design of the Honda EB10000 incorporates apatented frame design that clearly delineates its hot and cool operating parts. 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), by which the operator can see, at a glance, the state of the conditions being monitored: total used hours, generating voltage (when error detected), battery condition, Oil Alert, and an AVR (auto voltage regulator) error code, all of which improve understanding about service and maintenance activities. The generator also has a one-touch, removable plastic top cover allowing for easy battery access and maintenance.
