Yamaha Motor Corp. has updated its full line of inverter and conventional generators with carbon monoxide (CO) sensor technology to meet the Portable Generator Manufacturers’ Association’s (PGMA) ANSI/PGMA G300-2018 carbon monoxide emissions standard.
Already featured on the EF2200iS since mid-2021, the CO sensor is now standard on the EF3000iS/iSEB, EF4500iSE, EF5500DE/D, EF6300iSDE and EF7200DE/D models.
When the CO sensor detects elevated levels of carbon monoxide, the generators automatically shut off and remain off for five minutes, with an indication to move to a well-ventilated space. The CO sensor graphic and LED indicator lights have been added to the control panels to notify the consumer of carbon monoxide emission levels or system malfunctions.
Kevin Reed, Yamaha Outdoor Power Products division senior manager, said Yamaha supports technology to enhance overall protection and performance in its products.
“Whether for DIY projects, emergency back-up power, or camping,” Reed said, “delivering safe and reliable power is our top priority as we continue to make this technology a standard feature across our lineup while maintaining the performance and reliability that our customers have come to expect.”
In addition to the CO sensor, various protection systems are included to maintain the performance and operation of the generators.
All Yamaha generators are equipped with a low oil warning system that shuts off the engine if the oil level drops too low. To prevent electric shock, the EF3000iS/iSEB, EF4500iSE and EF6300iSDE are equipped with a ground earth terminal. The EF5000D/DE and EF7200D/DE feature advanced dual GFCI 120-volt outlets that automatically cut off power if they sense a leak to ground.
All Yamaha generators are backed by a three-year limited warranty.
