[ISOLATED] American Step Down Transformer
Step down Transformer – American Voltage Converter for Australia Order Above
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 device to run in Australia.
Simply plug transformer into the Aussie power socket & the device into the US power outlet & your ready to go!
Protect your USA appliance – buy a step down that is guaranteed safe:
These features ensure your USA device runs safely on Australian power.

When decided on which Transformer will be suitable for your appliance/s, it is important to consider the Power Rating of the device/s you wish to run on the Transformer.
To determine the Power Rating of your appliance/s, you must determine the total wattage (W) or total ampere (A). This will be presented on the product in a electrical specification label, or in the product manual.
Once the total wattage (W) or total ampere (A) is determined, please use our ‘Calculator’ located on the tab section of this page. This calculator will help guide you on which Transformer is recommended using your appliance/s details.
Always note that the Transformer must always be 20-25% higher in wattage (W) rating than the total wattage of your appliance/s.
E.g: Playstation 3 uses 380 Watts, so you will need the 500 watt rated Step Down transformer.
If a motor is included in your appliance/s, then you should select a Step Down Transformer rating approx 25% higher than your motor as a buffer.
Motors have a higher power demand on the Step Down Transformer and draw higher start-up currents which need to be allowed for.
Most motors have a rating plate on them with their power (VA), wattage (W) and/or ampere (A) rating.
If so, how critical is this timing device? Our Transformers convert the voltage (V) and cannot change the frequency (Hz).
Please note Australia’s power grid supply operates at 50Hz.
If a timing device is included, the speed of the device may change due to the frequency difference in the power grid. This results in the appliance/s operating at 50Hz (Australia) when designed for 60HZ (Western Japan). An example of which appliance/s may be more affected by this are: old clocks, motors/fans/microwaves.
Most modern electronic devices should not be affected. Please read further about frequency for more information.
Calculation for Wattage:
Wattage (W) = Ampere (A) x Voltage (V)
An Example is Wattage = 5 Amps x 110 Volts = 550 Watts
Please check the total watts (W or VA) of all devices and ensure this is 20% lower than the power rating (W or VA) of the Step Down Transformer. If using more than two devices, please use a USA Powerboard to run multiples devices.
