Double your power with Parallel Capability
Parallel capability is an additional benefit of inverter technology.
Using a special cable you can link two EU1000i, two EU2200i, two EU3000 Handi, or two EU3000is generators together to get as much as double the output. (Please note: you can only parallel two identical units together.)
This gives you extra power when you need it, without having to trade up for a larger, heavier generator. You get more power without sacrificing portability.
Honda also offers a special Companion version of the popular EU2200i with a built-in 30-amp receptacle. This model is designed specifically for parallel operation with another EU2200i. It's also perfect for RV and use with a transfer switch, where a 30A outlet might be preferable.
Honda offers several cables as optional accessories.
|2 EU1000i||Parallel cables|
|2 EU2200i||Parallel cables|
|1 EU2200i and 1 EU2200i Companion||Parallel cables (incl. 30A RV adaptor plug)|
|2 EU3000i Handi||Parallel cables|
|2 EU3000is||Parallel cables|
EU2200i and EU2000i Parallel Operation
The EU2200i are only compatible with EU2000i or EU2000i Companion models within a specific serial number range:
- EAAJ-2017305 through EAAJ-9999999
- EACT-1000001 through EACT-9999999
Connecting an EU2200i with an EU2000i or EU2000i Companion that is not within the compatible serial range above may cause a low voltage output, which can damage tools and appliances powered by the generators. Units outside the compatible serial number range should only be paralleled with another EU2000i.
