Polaris Power models from 2013 are the P1000i, P2000i and P3000iE. These portable digital inverter generators are quiet, fuel efficient, lightweight and portable. They use digital inverter technology to produce high-quality clean electrical power, similar to that in your home. The engine RPM automatically adjusts as required by the power output demand, enabling these models to be quieter and more fuel efficient than conventional generators.
The 2013 Polaris generators can be used to support outdoor activities like hunting, fishing and camping or to power tailgates. They can also serve as emergency backup power to run lights, a refrigerator or a heater. These generators cannot power an entire home, but they can supply power for devices and appliances as needed. All devices and appliances are different and require unique amounts of power to operate properly. Always be fully aware of the amount of power your device needs and if it requires an additional boost of power to start up. Never run a generator indoors or anywhere without proper ventilation — including your garage.
The power outputs, sizes, weights and other specifications of the these three generator models can be found in the below chart. The generators feature low Total Harmonic Distortion. In power systems, lower THD means a reduction in peak currents, heating, emissions and core loss in motors. The P1000i and P200i have THDs of less than 1 percent at no load and less than 4 percent at full load. The P3000iE has a THD of less than 1.2 percent at no load and less than 5 percent at full load.
These three generators have tested to temperatures up to 120 degrees Fahrenheit (49 C) and as low as minus-20 F (-29 C). They can be used in the rain or other inclement weather conditions but should be protected to keep excessive pooling and moisture from cords and electronics. Ventilation is very important, so any protective covering should be at least 5 feet from any side of the generator.
As noted in the specifications table, the P1000i and P2000i models can be connected together using a separately sold parallel connection kit.
