Economy USA step down transformer

Step down Transformer - American Voltage Converter for Australia Order Below

A Step down Transformer is the ideal solution if you have an appliance designed to run on America's 110/120 volt system but is needed to run here on Australia's 240 volt power.


This transformer converts 240 volts down to 110/120 volts to allow your USA appliance to run in Australia.

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

tick.gif Our transformers are made to the highest Quality standards

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

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 rated 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? The Transformer cannot change the Frequency. It is 50Hz.

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) Most modern electronic devices should not be affected
4. Do you know the Amps of your device? -
if so you can calculate the watts required:

Calculated as  Watts = Amps x 110Volts  (eg 5 A x 110 V = 550 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

  Model comparison:

    2400 Watt Step Down transformer      Part No. Sd110-2400A

    For USA devices 2400 watts or less. Max 21.8 Amps  16Kg

    Why we have no 3000w stepdown in economy range? A: Normal power in most Aussie homes has a limit of 10 amps 10 x 240v = 2400w .

    You can not supply 3000w from a normal 10amp Aussie household outlet . You will need to check that you have 15amp Aussie power outlet which most residental homes don't have. 

    Therefore, for most homes the 2400w stepdown will supply the maximum power available.
