What's the difference between a EU2000IKC Companion and the regular EU2000i?
James Erickson 
from Utah 
May 06, 2014
Answer
Thanks for your inquiry.

Certain Honda generators have the ability to be paralleled together like the EU2000 generators. The standard EU2000iS has a one duplex outlet and in order to parallel this unit you will need the EU2000i Companion model which will have the 30-amp outlet in order to get the power from both units.

Below is a link to the Parallel Kit which has a video that explains the connections.

Can I wire a 2000i and the 2000i companion, using the 30 Amp companion outlet, to a 30 Amp 120/240V 8 circuit transfer switch wired into a home breaker box.
John 
from Wisconsin 
January 17, 2013
Answer
It is not recommended to connect a 120V only generator system to a 120/240V transfer switch because you will be feeding 120V to only one side of the switch hence not providing power to 1/2 of the switch.

There are 120V only type transfer switches that will work with the packaged EU2000i and EU2000i companion that we offer.


30A Manual Transfer Switches

Just select the 120V only versions.

What is a inverter generator?
Francine Breland 
from New Jersey 
December 28, 2012
Answer
An inverter generator is a power generator that can process raw power into a power feed similar to the power received through power lines. The generator part of an inverter generator is usually powered by gasoline or diesel fuel. "Inverter" means that the power is converted from direct current (DC) into alternating current (AC).

Typically inverter generators are much smaller then standard open frame style generators and tend to operate at very low noise levels. This makes them perfect for tailgating or camping and in some cases able to power one or two items in your home in an emergency.

Is there a way i can get a manual for my Honda generator?

Jim When you have the EU 2000I and the companion .... Do you connect the Parallel cables up first ... Then Start both units... Then connect the 30 amp... RV 120 cable.... Sounds right to you?.. Any other way in my opinion is dangerous and not right... What do you say??

Answer
1. Connect the parallel operation cable between the EU2000i Companion to either an EU2000i or another EU2000i Companion generator following the instructions supplied with the cable kit.

2. Start the engines and make sure the output indicator (green) on each generator comes on.

3. Plug an appliance into the 30A twist lock receptacle.

4. Turn on the appliance.

**If the generators are overloaded, or if there is a short circuit in a connected appliance, the overload indicator (red) will go ON. The overload indicator (red) will stay ON, and after about four seconds, current to the connected appliance(s) will shut off, and the output indicator (green) will go OFF. Stop both engines and investigate the problem.

Determine if the cause is a short circuit in a connected appliance or an overload. Correct the problem and restart the generator.

Follow the instructions included with the parallel operation cable kit. Before connecting an appliance or power cord to the generator:

Make sure that it is in good working order. A faulty appliance or power cord can create a potential for electrical shock.

If an appliance begins to operate abnormally, becomes sluggish, or stops suddenly, turn it off immediately. Disconnect the appliance, and determine whether the problem is the appliance or the rated load capacity of the generator has been exceeded.

Make sure that the combined electrical rating of the tools or appliances do not exceed that of the generator. Never exceed the maximum power rating of the generator. Power levels between rated and maximum may be used for no more than 30 minutes.

Never connect different generator models.

For parallel operation, use only a Honda approved parallel operation
cable kit (optional equipment) when connecting one EU2000i Companion to either an EU2000i or another EU2000i Companion generator.

Never connect different generator models.

For parallel operation, use only a Honda approved parallel operation cable kit (optional equipment, see page ) when connecting one EU2000i Companion to either an EU2000i or another EU2000i Companion generator.

Never connect or remove the parallel operation cable when the generator is running.

For single generator operation, the parallel operation cable must be removed.

***Substantial overloading that continuously lights the overload indicator (red) may damage the generator. Marginal overloading that temporarily lights the overload indicator (red) may shorten the service life of the generator.
