Japanese step-down transformer

Step down Transformer - Japanese Voltage Converter for Australia Order Below

A Step down Transformer is the ideal solution if you have an appliance designed to run on Japan's 100 volt system but is needed to run on Australia's 240 volt power.


This transformer converts 240 volts down to 100 volts to allow your Japanese appliance to run in Australia.

Simply plug transformer into the Aussie power socket & the device into the Japan power outlet & your ready to go


 

Quality standards

CTick Approved

 Protect your Japanese appliance - buy a step down that is guaranteed safe:


tick.gifOur transformers are made to the highest Quality standards

tick.gif Important difference - Tortech step downs are designed to run continuously 24/7 as the internal transformer is toroidal (round).  This means the amount of power available - the rating, does not drop after 40 mins of use! Read more

Important note: Why you should not use a USA stepdown for Japanese appliances:

Contrary to advice from others - running your Japanese device on a USA rated stepdown transformer will eventually destroy your Japanese device!  Most Japanese equipment runs at 100v and by using Japanese appliance on a 110/120v you will encounter overvoltage. Read more about this

 

To determine which below Step Down transformer you need please check these five questions first:

 

1. What is the total watts used by appliances to be connected to the Transformer?

Select from our Stepdowns range below based on how many watts your device uses*.  Choose the transformer above your watts usage.

E.g: Playstation 3 uses 380 Watts so you need 500 watt stepdown transformer.

2. Does your appliance have a motor ?

If a motor is included then you should select a stepdown rating at least 25% higher than your motor as a buffer. Motors have higher power use on the stepdowns and startup currents which need to be allowed for. Most motors have a rating plate on them with their Power and Amperage rating.

3. Does your appliance have a mechanical timing device? If so, how critical is this timing device?

If a timing device is included the speed of the device may change due to the frequency change, 60Hz to 50Hz (eg old clocks, motors / fans)
4. Do you know the Amps of your device? - is so you can calculate the watts required:

Calculated as Watts = Amps x 100 Volts (eg 5 A x 100 V  = 500 watts)
5.
Do you wish to use multiple appliances from one stepdown?

Check total watts of all devices this must be less than the VA rating of the stepdown & get a US Powerboard
