3 tons,

The 12 volt outlet is not regulated. Emergency use only. Measure under load.

when I check the 12dc output, in eco it’s at 18.1vdc and in regular mode it’s at 25.5vdc

Thanks, Interesting….Though I never use the 12vdc outlet, it could wreck some surprise havoc on sensitive ($$) electronics - I’m not too impressed…

Yeah I sometimes see 130 volts at start up and it settles to 126 under a light load. Fully loaded my little Honda holds 122 to 124 volts. You don't want to see more than 130 volts and 62 hertz unloaded on any generator. But 132 volts is usually the max tolerated for home electronics. Most houses and commercial properties I've worked on had 120 to 126 volts. Haven't seen any 110 volt readings in a long time, our local utility has improved over the years.

The eu2x000 series generators have had a high (but within spec) no-load AC voltage output from day one. As the load increases the output voltage ramps down to the 120 ballpark at full load. My eu2000i no load output voltage is 127.1 with eco on, and 128.6 with eco off.

The 12 volt output is not only unregulated, it's unfiltered. My manual says the following about it:

"The DC receptacle should ONLY be used for charging 12-volt
automotive type batteries. The DC charging output is not regulated."

They should also have added to use it only on FLA batteries. Ripple kills AGMs.

Good to know about the DC voltage.

I had a camper for 15 years that I found out after it was totaled that the battery con/charger put our 18 volts. That explains why the lights got so much brighter. I had 3, then 2 lead acid marine batts on it. about 7 years for each set. I would never have put 18 on batteries all the time, but they lasted a normal life and never blew up.

Old days your house was 110 volts. It got upped to 120 volts at some point for some reason. Appliances and things run fine on either 110 or 120, so correct that 130 should not harm it.

What comes out of your plug at home can be over 130VAC (or under 108VAC) and still be "in spec" (120 +/- 10%)

ANSI puts it closer to +/-5%.

spent my life in electronic equipment design. U.S. tolerance on line voltage is +/- 10% that is what we had to design to for U.S based products. 108-132V

That takes into account the minimum voltage allowed at the entrance panel as well as voltage drop allowed post meter.

That’s some good information - Good to know!
