A 1200 watt generator will have a maximum output of 10 amps at 120v. The continuous output limit is only 70 percent of the maximum so the realistic expectation is only 7 amps at 120v.
Answer 2/2 - Submitted 12/19/2012
The measurement of energy consumption is calculated using the equation:
Volts x Amps = Watts.
Depending on the amount of volts the generator produces will tells us how many amps it creates, lets take a look at a few examples:
1,200 watts / 120 volts = 10 amps.
1,200 watts / 220 volts = 5.45 amps.
1,200 watts / 440 volts = 2.72 amps.
1,200 watts / 600 volts = 2 amps.
As we can see when the volts increase the amount of amps being produced decreases and vise versa.
