Question about Protron PLTV-32 Television

They want to know the volts,watts and amps??? I'm not really good when it comes to electronics. My son had this TV given to him and now I know why. It didn't come with any power cord...imagine that! Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I'll try to get back to you tomorrow, you need to know the amps on the cord they sent me, model number or anything i can find I will get back to you. carol

without knowing the amp size and model number it is literally a guess as to how many amps per channel or any other question regarding it.

if you have a multimeter that measures watts that would be the only way to tell otherwise. good luck

Are you asking about tankless gas or tankless electric?

You posted under Tankless gas water heater: gas type tankless plugs into standard 120Volt household outlet to power circuit board. You need larger gas line than used for tank-type gas water heater.

If you are asking about volt and amp draw of Tankless electric, then that depends on specific model number.

For example, if each tankless element draws 3500Watts, and unit has 3 elements, you will need 3 additional 20 amp 240Volt circuit breakers. Volts x amps = watts. 3500 watts divided by 240Volts = 14.58 amps. At full blast, this unit would draw 43.75 amps and will cost more to operate yearly than tank-type electric water heater. If unit has 4500 watts elements, then it will draw 56 amps at full blast, and use a good percentage of household power.

Tankless water heaters have no hot water in power outage. This is true for gas and electric models.

I can't find an online manual for the model of the appliance you are talking about, so I'm unable to figure out the wattage it draws. Nor do I know where you are in the world and the voltage you are running at, so I can't tell you straight off. But I can tell you how to figure it out very easily:

I imagine that know what your main power supply voltage is (either 240 volt or 110 volt).

You can look at the appliance and there will be a data sticker with the wattage rating on it somewhere (or it will be in the install/Owner manual).

Now you have these 2 bits of information we can do a simple sum:

Watts divided by Volts = Amps

Therefore example calculations look like this:

If you have a 500 watt appliance on a 240 volt system 500/240 = 2.083 so use a 3 amp fuse

An appliance with a 750 watt motor on 240 volts: 750/240 = 3.12 so use a 5 amp fuse

A 2KW (2000 watt) appliance like a hot air blower on a 240 volt system: 2000/240 = 8.33 amps so use a 10 amp (or more commonly 13 amp) fuse

A 500 watt motor on a 110 volt supply 500/110 = 4.5 so use a 5 amp fuse

A 1KW (1000 Watt) appliance at 110 volts: 1000/110 = 9.09 amps so use a 10 amp (or more commonly 13 amp) fuse

etc etc etc.....

If the sum comes out below 13 amps, you can use a 13 amp plug. If it doesn't you need to hardwire it into a proper cooker supply.

Not knowing the model of the mixer you are talking about, or where you are in the world and the voltage you are running at, I can't tell you. But I can tell you how to figure it out. Simply do this:

You obviously know what your main power supply voltage is, either 240 volt or 110 volt

You can look at the mixer and there will be a data sticker with the wattage of the motor on it

Watts divided by volts = Amps

Therefore, if you have a 500 watt mixer on a 240 volt system 500/240 = 2.083 so use a 3 amp fuse

a 750 watt motor on 240 volts 750/240 = 3.12 so use a 5 amp fuse

a 500 watt motor on a 110 volt supply 500/110 = 4.5 so use a 5 amp fuse

etc etc etc.....

Hope this helps

It is a two ton system. and without doing a heat load Calculation and not knowing the heat load It would not be anything but a guess. But if everything is working properly and the system is clean and with good duct work, than it should be big enough for the size of your house.

The simple answer is not many. I don't think your pump is that hungry to use kilowattS per hour... lets see "Kilo" is one thousand. At this site you will find the several formula for getting to your answer. Ohm's Law applies ... http://www.powerstream.com/Amps-Watts.htm

I am presuming your pump is 115 Volts and it probably plugs into a 15 amp circuit. IF IT USES 15 amps (I doubt it uses the entire value) Volts X Amps = Watts or 1725 watts or about 1.7 kilowatt. I couldn't find the amp rating for your particular model pump. I think it probably operates near 6 to 8 amps @ 115 Volts AC. If your pump runs at 6 amps that is 690 watts, 8 is 920 and 10 would be 1150. There are other factors that determine the actual amount of power consumed - load will increase the use - partially clogged filter would be an example of increased load, age of the pump could be another factor.

Here is another nifty place to convert: http://www.supercircuits.com/resources/tools/Volts-Watts-Amps-Converter

Here is a rule of thumb: If a device can run on two different voltages, the higher the voltage, the lower the amps. For example 115 volt @ 12 amps would use 1380 watts. The same device running at 230 volts would run at 6 amps and use 1380. This is the correct math answer. However, in actual use, the device would run slightly more efficient (use fewer watts). Electricians and science teachers and math teachers will all tell you different stories depending on their discipline. Heavy use devices do run more efficiently at the higher voltage (stove, dryer, furnace, hot water heater, well water pumps, swimming pool pumps)(Do not go looking for a 220 Volt pump for your above ground pool in an effort to save money. The higher voltage device will cost more and there are other practical and safety related issues in this kind of installation.)

If you lived in my area, (please don't say where you live) you would pay about 12 cents (US dollars) per kilowatt hour. If your pump runs at 10 amps 115 volts - that would be just over 12 cents per hour to run the pump.

I trust this answers your question? Thank you for your interest in FixYa.com

The conversion of Amps to Watts is governed by the equation

Watts = Amps x Volts

For example 1 amp @ 110 volts = 110 watts

your case 7 amp @ 120 volts = 840 watts

unless you are running it at 230v but I don't think you can

I would look for one rated for Volt-Amps instead of watts

It's best to round up to be safe add 40 - 60 watts

you need a clamp on amp probe, a multimeter wont hack it. if you can get a amp probe, you first seperate the wires on your cord and then place the probe over one of the wires only this will give you your consumption. by the way, your approx usage of watts on a 26 inch lcd tv would be 160 watts. models do vary.

if the heater is 120 volt or 240 volt its really pretty easy. at either end is a cover. remove the cover and you'll see a wirenut or maybe just two wires. one side has an integral thermostat. connect your supply to the two wires on the thermostat. connect the other end in your breaker box with the appropriate sized circuit breaker. wire size feeding it will depend on its current draw. how many watts is the heater? 1500 watts will draw 6.25 amps at 240 volts so you can use 14 ga wire. 2000 watts will draw 8.3 at 240 volts - so 14 ga is still ok. 2500 watts at 240 draws 10.41 amps. 3000 watts draws 12.5 amps at this stage I'd use 12 gauge on a 20 amp breaker.
