Digital inverter technology delivers pure sine wave power that’s safe for all of your electronic equipment such as TVs, computers, tablets and mobile phones.
Easily carried by one person, the iGen 1200,22200 & 2500 each have an ergonomically designed handle Incorporated in the generators casing.
The iGen series is exclusively powered by Westinghouse 4-Stroke OHV petrol engines incorporating the latest US EPA and Australian emission controls.
The iGen4500 is equipped with fixed and extendable handles and also Never-Flat wheels so you can move it about safely with minimal effort.
Built-in automatic safeguards reliably protect your investment against potential damage caused by low engine oil level or electrical system overload.
Advanced design of the engine and outer casing enables all iGen models to run ultra-silently from only 51 dB(A), which is barely audible.
All of the engine and electrical controls as well as the electrical outlets are clearly labelled and intuitively positioned.
ECO throttle control minimises fuel consumption by automatically adjusting engine speed to match the electrical power demand.
Everything you need to get started is conveniently provided in the box with your new generator. No assembly required. Just add petrol and enjoy!

How to Select Your Generator
Not sure what size Generator you will need??? Westinghouse have made that easy too with guide on how to work out the best size for your camping needs. Simply follow the steps below…
1. Identify the devices you want to power simultaneously. Record the starting power and running power demands of each device in Watts.
2. Add up the running power of all devices. This total must be less than the generator’s rated running power output.
3. Identify the device with the highest starting power demand. Add this value to the running power demands of the other devices. This total must be less than the generator’s rated starting power output.
4. Select either a Professional or Utility Series generator for standalone plug and socket connection to portable electric devices. The RCD safety switch equipped PRO models offer you the best protection against electric shock as per Australian WH&S Regulations.
5. Or select a Utility Series generator if your application requires it to be connected to a fixed electrical installation by a licensed electrician. The RCD safety switch fitted to the PRO models will trip on load if connected to a multiple earthed neutral (MEN) electrical installation.
Working out Power Demands
To assist your further in working out the best generator for your needs, Westinghouse have provided a useful table that shows approximate wattage usage for most household appliances. Although the table shows many items used around the house, many of these similar items are now used in caravans. It should be remembered that the table is an approximate guide only as to the running and starting power demands of common devices. There are large variations in the performance of different makes and models of electrical devices and the manufacturer’s specifications are often inaccurate or misleading. High power, low duty cycle devices such as welders and plasma cutters are especially problematic in this regard. It is recommended that the generator and powered devices be trialed to ensure that the combination performs to your satisfaction.
