Product Description

Powerlite Honda 8 KVA Generator, with 2 Wire Auto Start Controller. 

Built and tested in Australia, by one of Australia's leading manufacturer of portable generator sets; Powerlite. The generator is powered by a reliable Honda IGX390 4-stroke engine and delivers a max output of 8kVA and  a continuous output of 6800 watts. This tough model is a popular generator for automatic back up to off grid solar applications.


1) Backup to Off-Grid Solar: For backup power to off-grid solar systems, this generator requires a Powerlite Deep Sea 2-Wire Auto Start Controller - supplied with generator package. This controller connects between your Powerlite generator and your solar system for automatic charging of your solar batteries when battery charge is low. A qualified solar installer / electrician is required to undertake the install and connection.
