Introducing the quiet portable generator lineup by ECHO Bearcat. Their IG3500E and IG2000 put out 3500 and 2000 watts respectively. The IG in their name stands for Inverter Generator, which is the quiet portable generator.
Inverters are used when devices that use AC power need to be used in a car or other place where only DC power is available. They are super quiet. Generator types that are as close to silent as possible will operate at noise levels between 50 and 60 decibels. That is only about the loudness of our regular speaking level so it’s not bothersome. (Depending upon who’s talking!) When you stand approximately 25 feet away from either the IG3500 or the IG2000, they only measure about 57 to 60 decibels.
How a Portable Inverter Generator Works
Here’s the short version of what makes ’em work: A quiet portable generator like these ones utilize a different type of alternator than standard generators to generate AC power. The power produced is converted from DC to AC by a computer-controlled inverter module. The engine speed varies depending on the electrical demand, which significantly reduces noise and fuel consumption compared to standard portable generators.
No need for a generator silencer!
So you see, the ECHO Bearcat is a quiet portable generator. Daytona Outdoor Power is the place to go to see quiet generators for sale. Here are the featured items in this category:
These IG2000 and IG3500 inverters can be linked parallel via the optional ECHO Bear Cat connection cable. Using the special cable or kit, you can link two IG2000 inverters, or two IG3500 inverters together to get as much as double the output. This gives you extra power when you need it, without having a larger, noisier, heavier generator. That’s more power, still quiet, and still easy to carry.
