Capabilities of the Robin 2400is generator


no
ac units are 2000 watts minimum, washing machines are 1500 watts minimum, microwave is what is on the plate and start at 650 watts but most are 2000 watts
the 2400 is the peak out put for start up of fridge , washer etc and the running wattage will be 2000 watts or less ( duty cycle )
to run more than one of the nominated items at once you will be needing a 5500 to-6500 watts unit
they handle a start up surge of 6500 watts ( larger one) and will comfortably handle 5500 watts run full load
it works like this , the plate on the gen set is the surge short time load capacity of the genset and not the duty load which is 500 to 750 watts less than that plate wattage
for example your 2400 is is surge rated at 2400 watts but duty load is less than the 2000 watts
many people make the mistake of buying a gen set that looks big enough but do not calculate the maximum load capable on being put on the gen set
fully loaded uses more fuel /hr
wears out faster
has power surges as the extra load cuts in and the motor struggles to get back to required rpms for voltage and cycles
will not cover extras like lights ,
a much large gen set will take it all in it's stride , no power surges, better economy, less stress
talk with an electrician , do your maths on everything you wish to run and that which you forgot about then add 1000 watts to the duty cycle and that will be close to the gen set you require

My Oman generator overheats and shuts down if I plug my battery charger in and have my air conditioning on and or coffee maker


to start with with an air conditioner running (2000 +watts ) plus a coffee machine (1500 watts ) you are looking at 3500 + watts of power used from the generator
the genset has to be of a minimum of 4500 watts to run full time with out over heating
never mind what the rating says on the side, that rating is surge rated and the duty cycle is around 500 watts less than that figure
So if your gen set is 3500 watts the power is at surge power and that will overheat the genset
Of course you haven't mentioned the rating of the set , but overloading is the main reason for over heating

My inverter keeps going to falt even though i only use it for a few seconds its only a few months old and has not been used mush its a 1000 2000 max


What are you trying to power with the inverter? Do you know how many watts your appliance need to run? Your 1000 watt inverter needs 83 amps from your battery to drive a 1000 Watt appliance. The minimum size wire you need to hook up the battery to the inverter is a size 6 as short as possible but no more than 25 ft.

We have a new 60 inch LED Sharp TV. Will an APC #BN600R battery backup, 600 VA 360 watts, handle a power outage or surge for this TV and a Dish network DVR??


Hello,
Yes this UPS will protect the TV and the DVR.
The TV is pretty energy efficient, and uses just under 100watts powered on. The DVR uses under 30 watts, so under heavy load you won't go over 150 watts if just these two devices are plugged into the battery backup side of the UPS. I'm not sure how long this UPS battery last's in a power outage, but since you are not using it to the full 360 watts, you should get double time out of it, though of course, its best to power off your devices as soon as you can. Regards, Chris

2 years ago I purchased a Boston micro-system cd /clock radio. It has worked fine but now it shows a slight light when I plug it it to a a power outlet but I try to activate them there is no response...


Thank you for your question.

There is a good chance that this radio got a power surge which may have been caused by the power going out and then when it comes back on, there is a surge. In some cases, a "brown out" does more damage than a surge.

For example, if a telephone pole fell over and the power lines were arcing in your neighborhood, your lights may flicker for several minutes. This can damage many electronic items in your home.

If this clock has a battery backup, try removing the battery and replace it.

If there is no response, you may want to take it to an independent electronics repair person and have him check the power circuit.

Chances are that the circuit board behind the ac power cord will be damaged.

A friend living in the country bought a Ryobi RG-950 generator. She wants to run 1 of her 2 computers or a TV 1 light at night and asked my advice. I told her that running any electronic equipment off a...


It's best to run all electronics through a UPS and surge protector. Small generators like the RG-950 are really for small power tools and lighting. The Ryobi RG-950 is only rated 650 watts which really means about 450 watts (70%) for continuous use. In general, a basic desktop or a laptop should be OK. A TV up to 25 inches and a 100w lamp, should be OK. If you try doing both at the same time, expect smoke followed by lights out. A UPS and Surge Protector are a must on small generators due to their poor voltage and frequency regulation. The UPS should be a good quality one that deals with Brownout, Overvoltage, and frequency deviation. ALWAYS USE A SURGE PROTECTOR!

Oops, these surge protectors don't always give you the protection you need. The trouble is this could be one of many things, what you are hearing is the fan cooling the cpu. But this is good news as it means your power supply and motherboard are OK, the bad news is finding what has gone; the only way is for a computer shop to run diagnostics and replace the part necessary. Otherwise I could advise you to replace a part, get it wrong and causing you more expence!
Sorry this not a straight forward answere.

Had power surges and now doesnt turn on


try unpluggin it from the wall for 10 minutes. this may reset its internal circuity. there is always the possibility that you had a brown out. most people call them surges but its when the power goes out and back on that hurts the TV. put a battery back up and or surge protector inline to save you from the next one. make sure the outlet you are using is still working and not tripped the power breaker. do this by testing a charger or light that you know already works in the same receptical outlet. if it works then power module went bad in tv, among other things.

Since the set needs to be diagnosed you have to take it into a repair shop.

Your specific problem indicates that a component is heating up then opening or closing to it's natural state. It is not a fuse or resistor. Obviously fuses can be reset or new one put in but when it comes to the smaller elements (resistors, transistors, capacitors) if they "pop" they are destroyed, so since you can turn the set on later this should not be the case.

For a power surge just use a surge protector to see if this remedies the situation, not to mention they help keep the set "healthier" due to brown-outs, etc.

You could also open the back up and watch what happens - see if there is a flash and get back with me. But a word of CAUTION, there is high voltage, so don't touch anything inside when the set is on or for at least 5 minutes afterward (let the capacitors discharge).

What is brown out


Brown-out .... What is it? Brown-out is a condition of lower than normal power line voltage being supplied by your local utility or generating equipment. This condition may be short term (minutes to hours) or long term (1/2 day or more). A power line voltage reduction of 8 - 12% is usually considered a Brown-out.
What causes Brown-outs? Electric utilities (your local, lovable Power Company) may occassionally reduce line voltage to Brown-out levels in an effort to adequately manage power generation and distribution during periods of heavy usage. Very hot days, when most air conditioning and refrigeration equipment would be operating almost continuously, is an example of such a situation.
Even without utility intervention, extreme overloads caused by most air conditioning and refrigeration equipment operation could tax the electrical distribution system to the point where a permanent brown-out state could exist over much of the power company distribution network.
Locations at ends of long electric distribution lines may experience chronic Brown-out conditions due to line loss. Intermittent heavy loads on this trunk circuit may cause the Brown-out effect to fluctuate with the load.
Installations using ship-board or temporary power sources are especially prone to operation in a Brown-out mode. Usually of limited capacity, it is quite easy to overload the power source, giving rise to permanent Brown-out. (Permanent Black-out, if users are not careful).
What are some common effects of Brown-outs? Brown-outs are the mother of all sorts of Bad Stuff.
Power supplies in some electronic equipment may fall out of regulation. Errors, due to erratic power supply performance, may creep into computer operations.Other electronic equipment may function poorly - or not function at all.
Marginally performing devices (electronic or electric) will probably cease operation entirely.
Motors will overheat. Some motor types will slow down.
Electrical interference will greatly increase. Increased interference may affect computer and communication operations.
Off-line UPS units (the vast majority of lower cost units) continuously cycle between power line and internal battery operation. UPS batteries (generally sized to provide only 5 - 10 minutes back-up) will soon be discharged, unable to generate additional Back Up power. You are out of business. If system has not been shut-down, the entire system (UPS & computer) may snap back to life when power rises slightly, only to again shut down when the power line voltage falls back into the Brown-out zone. Such "ON-OFF" operational cycling is unhealthy for UPS, batteries and connected electronics. For Brown-out correction see our Voltage Regulator Page.
Spikes generated by electrical machinery also greatly increase. Air conditioners, refrigerators and other motorized devices generate local spikes. Industrial machinery (often miles away) create additional spikes which may find their way unto the electrical distribution system, and into your sensitive, valuable equipment.
