Honda EU3000is Remote Kit

It's the finest remote made for the Honda EU3000is. Why? Because you don't really need a remote after all! Just an Android device, either a cell phone or a tablet with Bluetooth. Using Bluetooth you have a 6 function remote that can perform the following functions:

  • Start the generator using cold start - full choke
  • Start the generator using warm start - partial choke
  • Place eco-throttle in normal or economy mode
  • Immediate shutdown of generator
  • Shutdown generator 1 hour later (Sleep mode)
  • Shutdown generator 2 hours later (Sleep mode)

Choke control is fully automatic. The eco-throttle will automatically be disabled before starting the generator. While the generator is running, you can toggle back and forth to and from economy mode. NEW FEATURE on all models - the generator is automatically placed in economy mode 3 minutes after starting!! The standard generator operation features are not compromised by installing this remote.

This remote can be supplied with an optional 4 function RF transmitter. The functions are as follows:

  • Start the generator using cold start - full choke
  • Start the generator using warm start - partial choke
  • Place eco-throttle in normal or economy mode
  • Immediate shutdown of generator
  • Shutdown generator 1 hour later (Sleep mode)*
  • Shutdown generator 2 hours later (Sleep mode)*

*Sleep mode on this model uses buttons which perform dual functions.

NOW OFFERING A NEW VERSION 1.20

This version offers the same options as those noted above, it has all the same features, but adds the ability to control the generator with a contact closure.

 

Now you can turn your Honda EU3000is into an automatic generator! It will function with a 2 wire control. When the contact is closed the generator will start using  a temperature sensor to control choke positioning. The generator will remain running until the contact opens, at which time the generator will shutdown.

 

As with the other versions, the economy mode will be enabled automatically 3 minutes after starting.

Honda EU3000is Remote Kit Mounting

The Honda EU3000is Remote Kit installs with just a few tools. No drilling or soldering is required for installation! The EU3000IS remote mounts with double sided tape. The choke servo is mounted above the air cleaner using a specially designed bracket that is held in position with a set screw. A cable attaches from the servo motor to the choke linkage. There is no need to remove the air cleaner to install the choke bracket.

Connecting the Honda EU3000is Remote Kit

There is a 6 position removable terminal block on the side of the EU3000is remote. These terminals connect the control to the generator. A 2 position removable terminal block also on the side of the control connects the remote to the 12 volt battery of the generator. When not in use for over 20 hours, you can turn the control off with a switch located on the side of the control to preserve battery power. The switch is accessible by opening the cover to the air filter compartment. The choke servo motor plugs into a header on the top of the remote.
