You need one that can deliver not only the correct voltage but sufficient current to operate fully when under load. Check the current requirement on the sticker under the base, it will give operating voltage and watts. Purchase a transformer that matches the voltage and exceeds the watts by at least 30% so that the transformer is not operating at full capacity when under load. It will not matter if the transformer exceeds the watts by 100% or more but they do get bigger and heavier as the wattage goes up.
the wattage is on the plate attached to the drill and will still be the same as before you attach a step down transformer to get to the correct voltage
get a step down transformer that has a large wattage rating for 120 volts ( say 1200 watts ) as most 1/2 drills are 750 -1000 watts )
the wattage is for the rated current through the transformer and if the drill is of low wattage , it just gives the transformer a greater degree of serviceability in the duty cycle
Hello, if in canada you have 110V in europe you will have 220V so, you need to find out if next the plug of your devices you have a switch that you can change between 110V to 220V. That will help otherwise you can burn the device.
You're not going to be able to do this with just a known Horse Power.
There are 3 elements to the equation, with any two, you can work out the third.
If you want to know how the amperage, you will need to know the voltage and wattage of the motor. I imagine that you already know the voltage (It's going to be 220V or 110 volt)
Watts divided by volts = Amps
A 220v 1000 watt motor (1000 divided by 220) will draw 4.55 amps A 110v 800 watt motor (800 divided by 110) will draw 7.27 amps
Bear in mind that most washing machines have a couple of windings for wash and spin. As an average, the was winding will usually be about 500 watts to spin and about 250 watts to wash. ALSO, bear in mind that if you are using this data for a WASHING MACHINE, then there is a water heating element in there too and that draws about 2Kw (2000 watts)
Dont just take this as read, you DO need to check wattages, but, working on what I have just said, the max consumption on a 220V machine will look like this:
At Spin, with a 500 Watt consumption: (500/220) = 2.3 amps While Washing with a 250 watt consumption: (250/220) = 1.14 amps
Consider that the WASH and HEAT may be running at the same time. 2Kw heating (2000/220) = 9.1 amps PLUS 1.14 amps for the motor - Total wattage 10.24 amps
Watts / Volts = Amps Amps x Volts = Watts Watts divided by amps = Volts
The power supply isn't a transformer, its a switching power supply. The power supply is different for different locations, but you should not plug a 110V only power supply into a 220v source or vice-versa. You should contact iRobot if you wish to obtain the correct power supply for another location or to determine if they have an autosensing model that can sense and adapt to either 110v or 220v. You can also use a step down transformer to convert from 220v to 110v. The charger should be using 20W or less, but it will be pulling the current in narrow surges from the peaks of the voltage wave (aka a high 3rd harmomic current) and you will need to use a 40W or larger transformer to avoid unexpectedly overheating the transformer core.
Kitchenaid mixers are not recommended on the use of a converter as they are not tested under such conditions. Understanding this, using a convertor on your mixer may automatically void the 1 year warranty regardless of age.
There are international Kitchenaid dealers available if you are requiring 110V. You may contacted Kitchenaid Customer Service for more information.
