That means it Can draw 160 amps from the car battery.... Its cool.

I have a DC motor that says 12 volts 60 amps on the side.... SO, what this means is It Can Draw 60 amps, this dont mean it will... On idel it draws 13 amps. when you applie load to it it starts drawing more amps depending on the load, but it should draw no more than 60 and if you torq it harder than that you will burn it up..

So, the gernator can Draw 160 amps, it may be only 12 amps on idel, so you run a radio from the converter it could then pull 14 amps, you run a shop light it could then pull 30 amps, etc,,, it can pull as much as 160 amps. so if it is taking 1900 watts full power then this means you can run about a 1900 watt driver motor.

THis does not mean you have to use a 1900 watt motor and pull 160 amps, you can use a smaller motor and pull fewer amps, but i have to admit, 1900 is alot, by driver motor is very incificient and it pulls about 1400 to 2800 watts, depending on the load, 230 or 220 volt motors clearly has more torq and draws less power, so they're ideal..

EDIT,, i just noticed it said that the output was 1600 watts,,, i guess this means when your consuming 1600 watts from the converter its using 160 amps from the battery... there is a 300 watt loss from heat etc,,.
