From the Fusion TIN12 open frame petrol generator series, the Stephill SE6500EC is reliability economical thanks to the robust Honda GX390 engine. The Overhead Valve (OHV) engine produces 6.5 kVA / 5.2 KW of power effortlessly and has been designed for for butt / fusion welding applications. The 110/55v CTE outputs and low distortion sine waves, conform to TIN12/ECE3 specification. Its best at home when powering fusion welding equipment.
Power Rating of the Stephill SE6500EC
It has a prime power rating of 6.5kVA / 5.2 KW.
This lightweight open frame generator is extremely compact and strong, so can be stored with ease in the smallest of spaces. With a generous fuel tank of 6.1 L, the Stephill SE6500EC open frame generator is perfect for your next project. Plus, its surprisingly light, just 71KG. With an easy-to-use configuration this portable petrol generator gives you a fantastic balance between performance and price.
Is the Stephill SE6500EC Easy to Start and Use?
You bet it is – the easy recoil start (pull start) is smooth and silky. On a well-maintained unit it starts first pull every time. This generator has the option to upgrade to an electric key start, making starting a total breeze.
There are 2 x 16A & 1 x 32A 110V BS4343 sockets to connect your welding equipment up to. Also this unit has low oil shutdown, the generator has a reset circuit breaker overload protection and a voltage selector switch.
Using Sensitive Equipment with the Electrical Power from the Stephill SE6500EC
The power produced by the Stephill SE6500EC enables a smooth voltage output via the brushless waveform alternator. This keeps the 110/55v CTE outputs to low distortion sine waves, conforming to TIN12/ECE3 specification. Essential for butt / fusion welding applications.
Low Noise Levels
You might think having a portable petrol generator will be very noisy. Well think again; the SE6500EC is surprisingly quiet at 72 dBA @ 7 metres.
What Happens If I Do Not Use My Generator for Long Periods?
As with all petrol engines, if you are planning to store your generator for a long period its ‘best practice’ to either drain the fuel tank then run the generator until it stops. This will prevent any unused fuel congealing and clogging the carburettor. Or to stop the fuel from going off use a petrol additive. Remember, stale fuel can stop your generator from starting when you need it.
