Start your generator without getting dressed! The IG3200W offers a 100 ft. remote start, as well as keyed electric start. At the press of a button you can start your generator from the comfort of your bed. The remote start reliability is further enhanced by an electronic solenoid fuel enrichment that continues to function at temperatures well below zero. The Porta Source IG3200W is the only inverter generator to offer the convenience of remote start with the reliability of a solenoid enrichment system.


PortaSource Inverter IG3200W usbFlexible Power Options

The Porta Source IG3200W offers the most ports, sockets and receptacles of any 3200 watt generator on the market.

USB Port

All modern tablets and smart phones utilize USB style charging cables. The Porta Source IG3200W allows these cables to hook directly into the power supply panel. This 5V 1000mA USB port safely fast charges your most sensitive electronics. Often times while camping, hunting, or tailgating, high voltage devices and low voltage devices fight over the same 120V outlets. Having a USB port and a 12V cigarette socket allows you to plug in a myriad of devices and to travel light because you won’t need to carry an additional power strip.

12V Cigarette Socket

Why buy a generator with a funny looking two prong 12V outlet that doesn’t adapt to any devices currently in your house or garage? All of your current 12 volt devices and automotive accessories use a cigarette style 12 volt socket. The IG3200W will power all of the automotive accessories that you currently own. Air compressors for tire inflation, small vacuums, spot lights, air pumps for inflating mattresses, and phone/tablet chargers are just a few of the devices that you most likely already have that plug directly into the IG3200W power supply panel.


PortaSource Inverter IG3200W rear lgOverhead Cam with Pressurized Oil Sump

Automobiles have overhead cam engines with oil pumps and oil filters. Why shouldn’t your generator? Overhead cams are more precise and longer lasting then their pushrod overhead valve predecessors. The IG3200W has a power plant like no other inverter generator. Not only does it have an overhead cam with a self-tensioning timing chain but the overhead cam rides on precision roller ball bearings instead of sticky journal bearings. A chain driven gear pump supplies pressurized lubrication to the valve train, cylinder skirt and crank shaft bearings. The overhead cam is also where Porta Source incorporates a compression release for easy pull starting. All of these powertrain features are guarded by a low-oil shutdown system and replaceable oil filter. Commercial users will find the built-in hour meter handy for tracking maintenance schedules while crews and equipment travel from job to job.


PortaSource Inverter IG3200W 8.5hrs economy Quiet and Fuel Efficient

Economy mode serves as a load management system, and allows a runtime of up to 8.5 hours on a single fill of gasoline. This feature is critical for quiet and fuel efficient delivery of power. Low engine speed is not the only noise suppression method utilized on this unit. The engine rides on a cradle suspended by four low durometer vibration dampeners. The air cleaner and muffler are specifically designed to cancel sound from both the intake and exhaust. A cast iron exhaust manifold keeps both combustion heat and noise close to the source. Finally the entire generator enclosure is specifically designed for sound and vibration dampening.
