In the U.S., you will need 140V, 60hz.

Will Freezer run overseas on a transformer?


Step Down Voltage Converters You can use this link to find a converter that should work. There are several other sites as well. You need to get a converter with enough wattage capacity to operate the freezer. I recommend you get one with a somewhat higher wattage rating than the freezer's wattage rating. For instance if the freezer is rated at 700 watts, I would get at least a 1000 watt converter. Good Luck !!! and Bon Voyage !

Hi, i bought cuisinart ice-21 ice cream maker from amazon.com as im from Malaysia. I have used a voltage step down transformer as the voltage in malaysia is 240V when i use the ice cream maker. But...


Hi,
It sounds like the step-down transformer is running just beyond its capacity, and so shuts down when the load gets too high. A load peek may also occur when cooler turns on.

Can you please post the power ratings of both your Maker and the transformer please ( AMPs or Watts or VA)

Sell it as a second hand tv,get,what $ u get.Sorry,if ur tv is not a Region Free tv Systems.It,will run only on NTSC signal frequencies,will not run on PAL signal frequencies.Ausi as u know,run on PAL and 240V 50Hz.Will work with a step-up tranformer,but if only,if ur tv is a Region free tv Systems.

I have a 240v drill and need it converted to 110v as I can't use it at work. It is the Hitachi DC 30PC2.


Unfortunately thi sis not really possible internally, you need to purchase step up transformer 110V/115v 220V230V/240V with at least 2A rating, 50Hz/60Hz frequency and at least Watts as are on your drill, that is, I am afraid only solution to your problem. Check prices of the transformers as maybe purchse of new drill will be less expencive.

As you did not stated where you are, I cannot advice more closely where you can find these, for beginning I would suggest chasing one (step-up!) on auction sites and electrical wholesalers, tool dealers.

Colinchee, this sounds like a rather complicated electrical engineering issue. Why not buy a coffee grinder in the UK design and rated for your power? It might even be cheaper and the guarantee will cover design flaws. Regards.

Electrical requirements for a Nexxt MO# WTMC 5321US


it would be simpler and cheaper to get a new dryer
most of the world uses a single phase 240v 50hz system, your dryer is designed to run on a 2phase 120v 90degree system.
the common statement that high voltage items like dryers use 220-240v is not strictly true, instead they run off both 120v phases of the 2phase system.
A transformer to produce a 2phase 90degree 120v 20A secondary from a 240v single phase source is expensive and very large.
It would be cheaper by far, to sell the dryer, and replace it with the equivalent model built for 240v single phase, than to buy the transformer and ship the dryer.

Crown XLS 802 D Amplifier Transformer!


You will need AC to AC converter that will accomodate US to UK mains. Look for power requirements of your amp on name plate and match with available converters online. Make sure power line frequencies match in/out requiremnts

50Hz to 60Hz conversion


Hi, Your idea is basically sound and should work as long as the UPS originally is designed to produce 240V 60Hz and has its own built in timebase. The reason is that the input as long as the voltage matches makes no difference (50 or 60 Hz). By design, the UPS converts the input voltage to DC to charge the internal battery. The battery then powers an electronic circuitry that produces the 240V 60Hz. The input is then isolated from the output in terms of frequency. This is a common design, however, there are some (not many) that uses for its local oscillation sampling from the source and therefore will replicate the input frequency to its output, but very rare; it's better that you know they exist. Hope this be of some help/idea. Post back how things turn up or should you need further information. Good luck and kind regards. P.S. The only problem with 50 and 60 Hz is heat buildup which is tolerable and still within safe parameters. The only time the 50/60 HZ makes a big difference is when motors are used, timers such as in the early designs of microwave ovens, washing machines, etc., pumps and other highly inductive consumers. Most electronic devices converts the AC input to DC and therefore the frequency has negligible effect. Of course others may see it differently.
