What is the difference between the EU6500iS and the EU6500ISAC?
RICHIE  
from South Carolina 
January 19, 2014
Answer
Thanks for your inquiry.

Honda only makes one EU6500iS model and every dealer might have different designations after the Honda model number. The "A" stands for America meaning it is only sold to the American market. The "C" stands for CARB Compliant and meets EPA standards in all 50-States.

Does the 30 amp side (plug) have the full 5500 watts available?
Robert McGowan 
from California 
September 30, 2013
Answer
Thank you for your inquiry!

The Honda EU6500iSAC is fitted with a 30 amp, 4-prong outlet. This outlet will allow up to 7500 watts to pass through at any given time. As such, you can take full advantage of this generator by using this high voltage outlet.

It is recommended to check the equipment which you wish to support in order to prevent the overload of the unit. The total load to be supported should not exceed 23 amps @ 240 volts.

Can I install a 06610-Z22-800ZA remote switch to a Honda EU6500 generator? It calls for a 06610-Z22-801ZA box though. Whats the difference and do you have wiring schematics?
Mike Musser 
from Michigan 
September 11, 2013
Answer
The 3 models that are capable to be used with the EU6500 generator are the following:

32380-Z11-810AZ (Remote Kit w/30ft cable)

06610-Z22-800AH (Universal Remote Kit w/50ft Cable)

06611-Z22-810AH (Wireless Remote Kit w/100ft Range)

We offer the two following models......

06610-Z22-800AH - Universal Remote Kit with 50ft Cable

06611-Z22-810AH - Wireless Remote Kit with 100ft Range

***If you have an older model EU6500 it would be best to confirm with Honda which model would be best for your unit based on the units serial number....

Honda Customer Support: 770-497-6400

Installation instructions are available on the wireless model and the corded model does not come with instructions since the cord just plugs into the generator.

What is Inverter Generator and what diferrence from regular portable generator, any advantage compare to regular generator?
Hisashi Omichi

Answer
The following article and video will help...

Inverter Generator vs. Conventional Generators

We are looking at this generator for its clean power features along with the Yamaha inverters as well. From what we have done in terms of calculations at peak we would expect to draw under 5000w if everything was on at once. What transfer box and outside connector would be best to pull this much power? We are not anticipating any 240v systems, Our water heater and furnace is gas and we have a portable air conditioner for the master bedroom study combo.
Dennis

Answer
I would suggest to you the Reliance Controls, 30 amp manual transfer switch. The model number would be; Q310C

In terms of the power inlet box, look towards the Reliance controls, 30amp inlet box. PB30
