Output power is one of the most important parameters. On him, especially, drew attention to the consumer. There are two 'pitfalls': Many manufacturers in the directories give the so-called maximum power output. Please note: This option provides short-term operation of the unit (depending on the company's range varies from several seconds to several minutes). Actual rated power is usually several (sometimes dozens) percent lower – power, like any other device, has its own cos. Some manufacturers when specifying the output power of his account, and others – not.
In the second case the user will have to count myself a real power rating, by multiplying the Catalogue for cos. Time of continuous operation without refueling This parameter determined by the volume of fuel tank and fuel consumption. When comparing these characteristics in different models, it is important that they be given to the 'common denominator'-power consumption. The fact that the cost of 1 / 1, 3 / 4 and 1 / 2 nominal power may be substantially different. For large plants the usual option is the ability to work from the external fuel tank. Run the unit power plant can be run in two ways: by hand (for which necessary to pull the cord or crank handle) or electric start (of course, if the model it is), that is turning the key or by pressing a button. In addition, the number of units equipped with electric start, admit remote start using the remote, connected with the station cable. The presence of the electric starter is a prerequisite for the conversion of power into a full system backup power supply, which will automatically operate (including on or off) without any involvement on the part of man.
