A portable generator is a gas or diesel-powered device which provides electrical power. The engine turns an alternator which creates usable electricity up to a certain level of wattage. Users can plug electrical appliances or tools directly into the generator's outlets.
What are the differences between standard portable Generators versus a Generator with Inverter technology?
Mi‑T‑M inverters produce commercial quality AC power for sensitive electronic equipment. In addition, Mi‑T‑M inverter technology reduces size, weight, noise, and fuel consumption.
Note: Mi‑T‑M's portable generators are designed to output the highest power quality available and are therefore, not recommended to operate sensitive electronic equipment.
To find the right size generator for your needs you will first need to determine the power requirements you are looking for. To determine the right size, add up the total watts of all lights, appliances, tools or other equipment to be connected to the generator. Check the nameplates to determine wattage. If wattage is not shown, but amps and volts are given, the following simplified formula may be used: AMPS x VOLTS = Watts
Once the total # of watts are determined multiply that by 3. This will calculate the approximate start up wattage needed, sizing the generator for your needs.
NEVER use generators indoors, including homes, garages, basements, crawl spaces, and other enclosed or partially enclosed areas, even with ventilation. Opening doors and windows or using fans will not prevent carbon monoxide build-up.
ONLY run generators outdoors and away from air intakes.
Mi‑T‑M offers a variety of accessories to fit your needs ranging from RV adapters, wheel kits, puncture proof tires and lifting hooks.
Our recommendation is to contact a licensed electrician regarding this question.
