FAQ: Transformers (voltage converter) 110V,120V / 220V,230V,240V


The answerrs:
  • I would like to run a special "european-device" (230 V, 240 V) in the USA (or another country with 110 V, 120 V, e.g. Japan, Taiwan). Which transformer do I need?
    On every electrical device you should find a label on which the power (Watt, "W") is mentioned, that this device needs. (If you did not find this information on the device, you should find it in the manual.)
    This power (W) must be smaller or equal to the power (VA) of the transformer.

    Examples:
    1.) Your device needs a power of 600 W. So you can use the transformer with 900 VA (= 900 W).
    2.) Your device needs a power of 1200 W. So you can use the transformer with 1600 VA (= 1600 W).
     
  • I would like to run a special "USA-device" (110 V, 120 V) in Europe (or another country with 110 V, 120 V). Which transformer do I need?
    On every electrical device you should find a label on which the power (Watt, "W") is mentioned, that this device needs. (If you did not find this information on the device, you should find it in the directions for use.)
    This power (W) must be smaller or equal to the power (VA) of the transformer.

    Examples:
    1.) Your device needs a power of 600 W. So you can use the transformer with 900 VA (= 900 W).
    2.) Your device needs a power of 1200 W. So you can use the transformer with 1600 VA (= 1600 W).
     
  • Do the transformers have plugs and sockets to connect to the devices?
    No, because our transformers can be run in both directions (110 V to 230 V and 230 V to 110 V) we do not mount any plugs and sockets.
     
  • Do the transformers change frequenzy from 50 Hz to 60 Hz?
    No, usually this is not necessary. Most "modern" devices can be run with 50 Hz and 60 Hz without any problems. Please check your device or your manual for a text like "50/60 Hz". If you find that text no problems are to be expected.
     
  • Do the transformers have UL-approval?
    No, although the transformers are of very high quality they do not have UL-approval.
     
  • How fast the transformers can be shipped?
    Usually we do have the transformers in stock, so that we can ship smaller orders immediatly.
