Two Brand New Honda 110V Portable Generators Available for the Utilities Sector

Posted: Wednesday 30th March 2016

Seddons Plant & Engineers Ltd has introduced two brand new Honda 110V Portable Generators to offer reliable and ultra-quiet power generation to the utilities sector.

The Honda EU10i 110V model delivers 0.9kW of clean, quiet electricity to power sensitive electronic devices, whilst the Honda EU17i 110V model delivers 1.7kW of smooth, clean power for more demanding applications. Both the Honda EU10i and Honda EU17i are ultra-quiet in operation and the fully enclosed, sound reducing casing keeps noise down to just 52 decibels at 7 metres, which is quieter than normal conversational speech. Rubber feet minimise vibration and movement and Honda's state-of-the-art Inverter technology allows the EU10i and EU17i to remain much smaller and lighter than comparable models, allowing them to be super portable and carried with ease.

Stephen Seddon, Managing Director of Seddons Plant & Engineers Ltd said: "There has been a great deal of demand for these 110V Portable Generators from organisations involved in pipe inspection, trenchless and utilities work. They are ideal for powering underground camera equipment used for pipe inspections or for sites that will only allow the use of 110V equipment. As they are ultra-quiet, they can be used in residential locations with minimal disturbance and can be easily carried to built-up areas or remote locations by one person, yet they're still very powerful and deliver stable energy that's even cleaner than electricity for the mains. The power delivered is free of surges or 'spikes' that prove be detrimental with utilities work."

The smaller EU10i model is just 13kg in weight and is powered by an efficient Honda 4-stroke engine with a 2.1 litre fuel tank. Honda's unique EcoThrottle extends fuel economy further by allowing the generator to idle, speeding up only when there is demand for more power. This feature cuts down noise and fuel use, saving users money as well as giving extended periods of power without refuelling. The EU10i model provides 8.3 hours running time on a single tank and is suitable for powering all sorts of machinery and equipment, including sensitive electronic devices.

The EU17i is powerful enough to run larger equipment, yet at 21kg it can still be carried with ease. Powered by a Honda 4-stroke engine with a 3.6 litre fuel tank, it runs for over 10 hours on a single tank of fuel, ensuring minimal fuel costs and maximum engine life. Like the EU10i, the unique EcoThrottle runs only as fast as the load demands, improving fuel consumption and extending engine life.
