Ambient conditions for rated power output with muffler and RV enclosure, per ISO 8528-1:
- Temperature: 77° F (25° C)
- Altitude: 500 ft (152.4 m), (99 kPa dry)
Typical power output change based on ambient conditions:
- Temperature: Power output decreases 1% for every 10° F (5.5° C) increase
- Altitude: Power output decreases 3.5% for every 1000 ft (305 m) increase
Ratings represent minimums. Actual performance may be significantly higher based on installation and operating conditions.
* Evaporative spec: For trailer applications required to meet Tier III Evaporative Emissions of the California Air Resources Board.
Effective January 1, 2011, gasoline generator sets on trailers, diesel chassis or any other non-motorized mobile apparatus must have an
EVAP generator set, approved tank, EVAP canister, hoses and fittings all meeting the CARB Tier 3 and EPA phase 3 standards and
specifications. This law applies in all 50 states.
