Description

Zoom on the Westinghouse iGen11000DFc

In a nutshell, the Westinghouse iGen11000DFc is a powerful portable inverter generator mostly geared towards:

  • Small homeowners in search of a full power backup solution
  • Camping and tailgating hobbyists looking for a portable power source
  • Professionals who want to be able to deliver results, even during a power failure
  • Homeowners who want to be sure of their ability to power their fridges, cooking tools, heating and lighting equipment during power failures
  • RV travellers wishing to enhance their freedom and nomad lifestyle

In the sections ahead, the power characteristics, availability of various outlets, the portability, and any additional features of the device shall be discussed, including its emission compliance information.

Power & Run Time

The Westinghouse iGen11000DFc in use

The Westinghouse iGen11000DFc

With its dual-fuel technology, the powerful and versatile Westinghouse iGen11000DFc provides an output of 120/240V. While gasoline-powered, it gives a running wattage of 9,000W along with a peak wattage of 11,000W. While propane-powered, it provides 8,000 rated watts and 10,000 starting watts. The impressive running wattage makes this unit one of the biggest inverter generators currently on the market. In addition, the device is parallel capable (parallel kit included) and thus, can be linked to a similar or compatible unit for added power.

Enjoying a noise rating of 64 dBA (just slightly more noisy than a normal conversation), this inverter generator can be started thanks to a conventional pull-start mechanism, but also to a simple and elegant electric starter (battery included). The iGen11000DFc can also be remotely started, offering further convenience (key fob included).

The running time of the iGen11000DFc, with its 7.9 gallons fuel capacity, can reach up to 17 hours on a full tank of gasoline (fuel consumption around 0.46 GPH). With propane, it can reach up to 9.8 hours (on a 20 lbs tank - propane consumption around 0.48 GPH).

The iGen11000DFc produces a clean sine wave: thanks to a <3% Total Harmonic Distortion (THD), your sensitive electronics can be safely plugged in the AC outlets.

Outlets

The control panel includes the following 4 AC outlets:

Duplex 120V 20A (5-20R) GFCI
120/240V 30A (L14-30R) receptacle
120/240V 50A (14-50R) receptacle

If you own an RV with a 50-amp service, you can consider this Westinghouse unit as RV-ready, as it features a 14-50R outlet. In addition, as the iGen11000DFc holds a twist-lock L14-30R receptacle, it is transfer switch ready: you'll easily be able to connect it to your breaker box to power your home during a power outage.

Westinghouse's ST Switch Outlet

Picture of the ST Switch outlet

The ST Switch outlet

The iGen11000DFc is what Westinghouse calls Smart Switch Ready. This means that it features a special outlet that allows for an automatic transfer of power in case of a power outage.

To benefit from this feature, you'll need the Westinghouse ST Switch (opens in a new tab), which is not included with the generator.

Simply put, the ST Switch is a cost-effective and versatile portable automatic transfer switch, which can be installed quickly and easily, without an electrician.

Plug the ST Switch into one of your household 120V outlets, plug your appliances to the ST Switch, and connect the iGen11000DFc to the ST Switch via the special outlet and a 120V cord. The generator will automatically turn on when the power goes out, and automatically turn off when the power returns.

Portability

Since the Westinghouse iGen11000DFc is an inverter generator, its closed design (L30.2 x W25.2 x H26.6 in) has an esthetical advantage over conventional, open frame devices. The featured design follows the latest trends and is ideal for easy and recreational use.

Although this generator is technically considered 'portable' (in the sense that it can be moved), its 187.4 lbs make it incredibly difficult to manually lift and transport. However, this lack of maneuverability is compensated by its set of 2 wheels and its folding handle, with which you can conveniently shift it, once it's on the ground.

Features

Panel of the Westinghouse iGen11000DFc

The iGen11000DFc's control panel

To help you monitor the iGen11000DFc's status and activity, its control panel is equipped with a digital data center, giving you information on the voltage, lifetime run hours, power output, fuel level and frequency.

In addition to this info, when the generator is on overload, its oil levels are insufficient and the generator is ready, you will be informed by the featured light indicators.

As far as security is concerned, the generator can be used with a peace of mind, as it features an overload protection (circuit breaker) and an automatic low oil shut-off.

It also includes a carbon monoxide sensor. This sensor is designed to monitor the level of carbon monoxide present during the generator's operation. If the generator is positioned incorrectly and carbon monoxide levels rise to an unsafe level, the generator will automatically shut down.

While the standard documentation and an owner's manual (opens in a new tab), helpful for starting the device promptly, come with the Westinghouse iGen11000DFc, the following accessories are also included: propane hose, battery charger, tool kit, oil, funnel and key fob.

Emissions

The Westinghouse iGen11000DFc is EPA-approved and CARB-compliant. Thus, selling and purchasing this generator is allowed in each of the 50 states, including California.

Moreover, it features a spark arrestor, so it is adequate for use in forested areas.

The unit also meets the ANSI/PGMA G300-2018 safety and performance requirements.

The Westinghouse iGen11000DFc versus other generators

The following charts are provided to give you an idea of how some of the key specs of the Westinghouse iGen11000DFc compare to dual fuel generators of similar power (between 8500 and 9500 W).

  • As for its weight, the Westinghouse iGen11000DFc weighs only 187.4 pounds, making it one of the lightest dual fuel generators in the 8500-9500 rated wattage category.
  • At a lowest noise rating of 64 dBA, this inverter generator is one of the most quiet devices of similar type and power.
  • The iGen11000DFc, offering a run time of up to 17 hours with a full tank at a 25% load, falls within the average autonomy range when compared to its peers. If you consider autonomy on a single full tank as one of the deciding factors, one of the generators in the same power range that offers the highest run time is the DuroMax XP10000DX, with up to 22 hours.
  • Run times are important, yet thanks to their dependence on the fuel capacity, they should be judged along with the fuel consumption of the device. As this inverter generator uses an estimated 0.46 GPH (gallon per hour) at a 25% load, it finds itself in the average gasoline consumption range of similar products. If not satisfied with the afore-mentioned fuel consumption, you may wish to check out the DuroMax XP10000DX. With a fuel consumption of as little as 0.38 GPH, it is one of the most efficient generators currently on the market.

Price comparison

As you can see from these interactive charts, when compared to other 8500-9500W generators, the Westinghouse iGen11000DFc is on the average side of the price range.

Therefore, this generator nicely fits in the expected budget for this kind of product.

About Westinghouse

The US based Westinghouse Outdoor Power Equipment is a legacy subsidiary of the Westinghouse Electric Corporation, founded in 1886. While the company has been acquired and merged into the American CBS, the Westinghouse name remains as the brand name for many of their electrical solutions, which stretch across the scale from power plants to portable generators. Portable generators – the main product of the Outdoor Power Equipment branch of Westinghouse – used to be manufactured by Westpro Power Systems, which was bought in 2016 by Midwest Equipment. Lawn equipment, such as trimmers and blowers, is also sold under the Westinghouse brand name. All of their products are designed in the US. However, they are in many cases manufactured in China.
