Unless you confirm the logger is designed for recording a spike you
might use a good handheld meter to verify it

Inverter running off AC? Conventionally inverter runs off DC for AC device.

the ac is a self-contained inverter system, built that way by japanese
when it starts, you can not hear any sound due to the superslow speed of
which takes several minutes to reach running speed and it constantly varies it
according to sensors in the indoor blower computer board. even when running at
speed it remains silent.

the inverter converts AC to DC and back to AC, thus apparently producing a best
sine wave (what I've read from the manufacturer white papers)

as previously replied, you are correct, northstar 8000 PPG with honda GX390,
motor and ignition key included.

am not familiar with how much of a distinguishing feature or how much it matters
as to
who puts a label on the outside of the unit, so allow me to ask :

how does a honda GX390 differ from one label to another? they appear to all have
same 13hp, 6600w-8000w (max) power, 30amp

mine is this one http://www.northerntool.com/downloads/manuals/165914.pdf

   GX390 is the model number of the engine, not the entire generator.  Sombody
(probably somebody in China) mated that Honda engine to a sombody's generator
and added the frame and other parts to make the entire package.  You do not have
a Honda generator unit, you have an off-brand generator that happens to sport a
common Honda industrial engine.

   That is not necessarily a bad thing, my pressure cleaner (bought at HD) is
the same deal and seems to be just fine.
