STXP series is an advanced performance and safety enhanced upgrade replacing the older ST series Step Down Voltage Converter. Our transformers include a safety fuse and thermal cut-out protection to ensure the transformer cannot be overloaded. So Adapters can only be used for US appliances that accept BOTH 240V and 110V (normally those appliances will have a “switch”). For those US appliances that do not accept both 240V and 110V, then a Transformer must be use to convert the current – otherwise the appliance may be seriously damaged.
Expensive – between $1to $110. The standard voltage is 230 V and the standard frequency is 50 Hz. See full list on power-plugs-sockets. Check out the following pictures.
When living in the United States of America you need a power plug adapter for sockets type I. We refer you to Amazon, where you will find a great selection of travel adapters. You can seriously damage your appliances. You should use a voltage converter which also changes the frequency, but these are hard to find. If your converter cannot change the frequency, be warned!
Be especially careful with moving, rotating and time related appliances like clocks, shavers and electric fan heaters. To be sure, check the label on the appliance. Some appliances never need. Would you like to add information to this page? Please send us your suggestions or remarks.
Transformers only modify voltage, they do not modify the frequency of AC electricity. If you need a specialist 100V transformer try these: 100V Step Down Converter (500W) (for using Japanese devices in the US – will not allow you to use US devices in Japan). Now that is a good way of doing it. Good luck, and let us know how you get on. Price Match Guarantee.
Genero us Rewards Program. The difference between an Adapter and Transformer. Adapters do not convert current from 240V to 110V for US appliances. Buy quality inverters, voltage converters, power packs and jumpstarters. We manufacture transformers, inverters, power supplies, single to three phase converters, variacs and custom designed transformers.
We didn’t ship any of our small electronics and we regretted it, but I’ll get to that it the post. I understand that it is possible to obtain voltage converters (that is, a transformer ), but have read that these are heavy and not very common. A transformer should never be connected to an appliance requiring a greater wattage than it is rated for an except for the smallest appliances , should always be grounded.
Our range of American voltage converters produce 120v output for using US appliances in the UK or Europe. Within this category we also supply converters with a 230v output to run British or European electronics in America. They are supplied with a wide choice of outputs fitted with American Pin sockets as well as hardwired.
Our voltage transformers are made to convert single phase 1or 2volt. American 2Volt consists of phase of 1Volt and European 2Volt consists of phase of 2volt. Volts x Amps = Watts (i.e. 110V x AMPS = 55W).
Australian standards. These transformers continuously operate at of the rated power output. They convert voltage to run American appliances in Europe or European appliances in the United States. A cheapie adapter will not cut it and could risk a fire. She would have to buy transformers rated for the wattage of the appliance , and rated for constant usage.
A transformer that looks like it might work for the refrigerator (scroll down to the bottom) costs $1not including shipping, and weighs 18. I suppose I should add the precaution that my transformer is an industrial-grade one – 800watts total capacity, because they recommend that you only use appliances that do not exceed of the rated capacity of your transformer. KitchenAid that I’ll chance it. The term Isolate or isolating, transformer generally refers to transformers used to provide electrical safety in areas such as hospital and laboratories. In the United States and neighboring countries, however, household outlets run at 1or 1volts.
This can pose a serious problem for travelers. Connecting a 2volt appliance to a 1volt outlet can damage or destroy the appliance. Two pin US socket on unit for 110V appliance and cord plug for 240V power.
