Do I need a step up or step down transformer?
You will need a step–down voltage transformer if you’re traveling to any country with a power standard that is higher than what your appliances use. Conversely, taking appliances that run on 220–110 volts requires a step–up voltage converter that can transform 110–120 volts up to 220–240 volts.
Step Down Voltage Converter Transformer 220 Volts to 110 Volt
High-quality 220v to 110v Step-down transformers and Voltage converters come with a 5 Year warranty. A Stepdown converter reduces the incoming 220/ 240 Volt electricity found in most parts of the world to 110 Volts
These voltage transformers enable the use of 110v USA electrical products in foreign countries where the voltage ranges from 220 Volt. Our CE Certified 220v to 110v converters are 50Hz 60Hz compatible, fuse protected, and grounded that can be safely used continuously for 110-volt American products in foreign countries.
TC type Step up down transformer is specially designed for such electronic equipment whose rated AC voltage different from that of the local net voltage. They are safe for use within the rated voltage range.
With one double power core
What is a Voltage Transformer?
A voltage transformer, also known as a voltage converter, electrical transformer, or power converter, is an electrical device that converters the electrical output of a power source – it either reduces or increases the voltage out of the mains. The most common use is for changing the voltage from 240volts down to 110 volts, or up from 110 volts to 240 volts.
A voltage transformer allows an appliance designed to be run on one type of voltage to be used on another, for example, designed to be used on 110v can be used on a 240v.
Which Type of Voltage Transformer is required?
A voltage transformer can either be a step-down transformer or a step-up transformer.
Step-down transformer: If you are using electronics or appliances that were purchased in a country with 110 volts (e.g., USA) and wish to use them in the country with 220/240V power, a “step-down converter” is required.
Step-up transformer: If you are using electronics or appliances that were purchased in a country with 220/240V (e.g., UK) and wish to use them in a country with 110 volts, a “step-up converter” is required.
We stock a range of step-up and step-down converters available in sizes up to 2000 watts
How to determine the size of the electrical transformer required?
The size of a voltage transformer is defined by wattage. Therefore, the wattage of the device/appliance that you will be powering needs to be established to determine the size of the transformer required.
The wattage of the item can normally be found on a label on the item describing the power rating or in the user manual.
Note: The wattage of the time may be abbreviated to ‘Watts’ or ‘W’.
If the power rating is not specified it can be calculated from the following equation: Watts (W or VA) = Amps (A) x Volts (V).
If only the amperage (amps) are displayed, multiple it by the volts to find the wattage, for example, 2A x 110V = 220W
Once calculated, choose a voltage transformer that can handle a higher amount of wattage than your device is rated. Please note that if the appliance is motor-based, it may require additional power to start up than is indicated (this is known as surge), as a guide add 20% to the power requirements of the device or contact the manufacturer of the appliance for further information. It is good to remember, that a transformer with a higher rating will not harm your device.
Example of problem a voltage transformer solves:
A product from the USA which runs on 110V is to be used in the UK at 240V. The product has a wattage of 454watts.
- If an appliance was designed for use in the USA, it will run on 110V.
- The power from the sockets in the UK is 240V.
- The item is plugged into a 500VA step-down transformer, which changes the voltage down from 240v to 110V.
What happens when a product is a dual voltage?
A dual voltage device means that it accepts both 110-120V and 220-240V rated input power. Luckily many travel gadgets are dual voltage, so you will only need to use a travel adapter, also known as a plug adaptor.
A foreign plug adapter does nothing to the power, it literally changes the physical plug type. The type of travel adapter required will depend upon where you are traveling to or where the product is from
