Question

Neutral-ground bond II

Robert@Honda-
To power modern Lennox furnace through local circuit only, using EZgeneratorswitch, I cannot use floating neutral Honda inverter, right, because the circuit board is "looking" for neutral-ground bonding? Can I modify a Honda inverter to serve the same purpose?? (some recommend fashioning a link in extra socket between neutral and ground).

Different equipment oftentimes will not work or report a "fault code" when connected to a small generator. It is recommended you contact a certified electrician in your area for further assistance regarding your application.

answer 2
Different equipment (UPS devices, inverters, outlet testers, etc.) will sometimes will not work or report a "fault code" when connected to a small generator, since most do not have a neutral-bond like a home outlet/breaker box. Honda suggests you consult with a local, licensed and trained electrician to ensure all connections are within code, safe and legal. FYI, there is a built-in ground screw terminal on the front of all Honda generators that may be used as required. Only a trained electrician should have the final call on what is in compliance for your area and set-up.

Again the EB3000c *IS* fully neutral bonded to the frame, which may or may not work properly with a GFCI-wired home.

Yes, the EB3000c IS neutral-bonded. FYI, unlike many other Honda EB-series models, the neutral bonding link on the EB3000c *can't* be removed. -Robert@Honda

Hi tomanynicknames :-)

Absolutely okay to run a computer with this generator. The EB3000c uses cycloconverter technology to make a nice power profile and is safe for all devices. I would suggest installing a good quality surge protector between the computer and any power supply, including this generator and even wall power. If your computer is mission-critical device, you may even want to go that extra step and get a UPS back-up power device that would continue to provide power if / when power goes out completely. Hope this helps. -Robert@Honda.
