Compact in design, the CARB-compliant Generac iX1400 gas-powered portable inverter generator (model 5842) is designed for life on the road. Its durable, lightweight design with built-in handle offers portable power for camping, tailgating, and recreational use. The iX1400 features inverter technology that reduces the size, weight, and noise of the generator and allows for the engine to run at varying speeds, significantly reducing the noise and fuel consumption levels. And its special electronic microprocessor can also provide safe, stable power for sensitive electronic devices such as computers. 1,400 watts of clean power to safely power sensitive electronics (see larger image). The iX1400 provides a reliable 1,400-watt power supply wherever you need it and a maximum power output of 1,450 watts, and yet it’s 40 percent lighter than a standard generator of equal wattage output. It features Generac’s FlexPower technology, which provides two modes of operation: High Mode for large loads or battery charging, and an Eco Mode to save fuel and reduce noise. Ideal for recreational use (ix2000 model shown;see larger image). To determine your requirements for a portable generator, see this wattage chart sample. The case is fully enclosed for quiet operation–making it campground friendly–and its integrated handle makes it easy to move from car to camp site. It’s equipped with a 4-stroke, 80-cc OHV (overhead valve) engine, which features a low-oil shutdown system to prevent engine damage and keep the generator in good shape for long-term use. This generator’s 0.7-gallon steel tank will give you up to 5 hours of operation at a 50-percent load. Other features include splash lubrication, 12-volt battery charging capability, and electronic overload protection. It’s backed by a 2-year residential warranty, and a 6-month warranty when used for commercial purposes. How Inverter Technology Works Inverter generators utilize a different type of alternator than standard generators to generate AC power. The raw power produced is converted from DC to AC power by a computer-controlled inverter module. The engine speed varies depending on the electrical demand, which significantly reduces noise and fuel consumption compared to a standard portable generator. The end result is a portable generator with reduced weight and size, and power that is ultra-clean and capable of safely powering sensitive electronics.
