Yamaha Motor has introduced the EF2200iS to its line of portable inverter generators. The EF2200iS is powered by Yamaha’s high-output MZ80 OHV, air-cooled, single cylinder 4-stroke engine to deliver a maximum 2,200 watts of AC output, with a maximum AC current of 18.3 amps at 120 volts.
The MZ80 offers greater fuel efficiency, running a continuous 10.5 hours at a one-fourth rated load. The Yamaha Quiet Technology reduces noise levels to 57-65 A-weighted decibels at a one-fourth rated load.
“The EF2200iS was built with RV camping in mind and needed to accommodate a wide variety of uses in a powerful, but easy-to-transport package,” said Kevin Reed, Yamaha Outdoor Power products division senior manager. “We have outfitted the EF2200iS with a variety of new features as well as proven Yamaha technology to deliver a powerful, quiet, and lightweight generator to the modern camper.”
The EF2200iS weighs 55 pounds and has a tri-handle design so two people can move the unit. A new LED-illuminated control panel makes it possible to check the status of the generator both day and night. The unit is operated with a new Yamaha Smart Dial.
The EF2200iS is also equipped with Smart Throttle, a load-sensing control that allows greater fuel-efficiency and noise-reduction. Yamaha’s Twin Tech parallel function allows two units to connect, and an Overload Power Reset enables the device to restore power in the event of an overload without shutting it down.
Yamaha’s EF2200iS also comes standard with a 3-year factory warranty.
