Rated 4 out of 5 by from for my American-made hardware No lightweight, but packs a punch with the hardware connected to it over the last month. With more use it may get my full five star endorsement.

Would this be suitable for running 50m of festoon lighting for periods of 4 - 6 hours?

Approximately 80 bulbs
Asked by: SMLTH
For 4 to 6 hours it should be viewed as a continuous load. This transformer is rated for 3kVA intermittently, and half that continuously, i.e. 1500VA continuous. Not knowing what the wattage is of each bulb but 1500W/80 bulbs would be only allow 20W each bulb. If the bulbs are 60W each. 80 bulbs x 60W = 4.8kW (for lighting like this 1W = 1VA) this suggests a much bigger transformer is needed if using a single one, or 3 Qty 3kVA transformers if you can split the 50m into 3 sections.

The transformer is connected to earth via the input plug as soon as its plugged into a 230v power socket, the earth connection is connected through to the output sockets also.

WIll this run 60hz powertools from the US

I see the 50~60hz variable sign on the output sockets. Does this mean it will be fine to run 60hz tools. Say a 13amp trim router?
Asked by: neewood
Hi , Our transformers will operate supplied by 50hz or 60hz but they cannot change the frequency, so if it is supplied with a 50hz supply it will output 50hz also. Running 60hz tools from a 50hz source may change the speed of the motor.
