New portable generator line

MWE announces a completely new line of Westinghouse portable generators ranging from inverter generators, open frame generators and contractor-grade generators.

The first six models launch the week of March 20, 2017 and more than a dozen more are launching over the next three months.

Select models of the new Westinghouse generators will feature on-board Smart Technology by Summer, 2017. The technology allows the user to turn on/off and monitor the fuel levels of their generator using an app on an Android or iOS (Apple) device. The Westinghouse portable generators will be one of the first to incorporate Smart Technology. The new models build upon the excellent reputation that Westinghouse generators have, report MWE sources.

Westinghouse Pro Series
Designed for professional contractors, the Westinghouse Pro Series are OSHA and NEMA compliant and include 120/240V AC GFCI outlets and USB ports. These units are also ideal for rental companies to meet customer needs.

The Pro Series start with a compact iPro2500 inverter generator that delivers 2500 peak watts. The line also includes 4000-watt, 8000-watt and 12000-watt generators. All of these units are equipped with electric start, never-flat wheels, GFCI-protected control panels and a tank fuel gauge. The Pro8000 and Pro12000 also have an onboard data center to monitor volts, frequency and hours as well as a 120/240V 50A outlet.

MWE Westinghouse iGen 2000 generatorWestinghouse iGen Inverter Generators
The quiet and lightweight Westinghouse iGen Inverter generator series includes several models ranging from 1200 to 4500 peak watts. Delivering less than three percent total harmonic distortion (THD), iGen Inverter generators produce clean power and are safe for use with sensitive electronics like laptops and smartphones.

The units are highly fuel efficient when compared with conventional portable generators — saving users gasoline costs. the units operate at sound levels lower than typical conversation levels and are much quieter than a traditional generator.

The iGen4500st is the top of the iGen line and incorporates 120V AC Duplex and 120 V AC 30A outlet plus two USB ports. It also has wheels and a retractable handle for easier handling.

Westinghouse WGen Series
The open-frame generators in the Westinghouse WGen Series range from 2000-8300 running watts. These units are simple to use and dependable, making them a fit for homeowners and do-it-yourselfers.

The WGen6500st and WGen8300st will feature Smart Technology, are equipped with 120V, 120/240V, and USB outlets, push button start, never-flat wheels and a tank fuel gauge. Dual Fuel units are also available.

Authorized Westinghouse portable generator dealers launched the first six models this week: iGen1200, iGen2000, WGen2000, WGen3600, WGen5500, and WGen7500. Other models will become available throughout 2017.
