Variac Transformer TDGC2-3D with 30 Amp Max Output and LCD Digital Display
Variac Transformer TDGC2-3D is an affordable, versatile way to control AC voltage output. With a high-efficiency output and no waveform distortion, this variable ac transformer can be used for a wide array of professional and DIY applications. This model also includes an LCD Digital Display in place of the less accurate analog dial display.
Variac Transformer TDGC2-3D features:
- Backlit LCD Digital Display for output voltage!
- Quality control testing
- Equipment testing on low and high voltage
- Precise control over heat and speed
- Ability to simulate various voltage and line conditions
- Rated up to 30 Amps or 3KVA Peak (25A Continuous)
- Requires AC input provides AC output (does not convert AC to DC)
- Does not affect the cycle rate
The Variable Transformer TDGC2-3D does not convert AC to DC. It requires an AC input and the output is also AC. Also, the unit will not affect the cycle rate from the power company. If your power system is providing 60Hz, the Variac autotransformer will not change that, the output will be an undistorted 60Hz. This unit is rated up to 30 Amps or 2KVA Peak (25A Continous).
Note: Variacs are not compatible with most GFI (Ground Fault Interrupter) wall outlets. We have found that the inductive load that the Variac represents is not compatible with most GFI circuits and they will trip the breaker.
Note: Not equipped with an isolated transformer.
Note: This unit is rated at 30 amps and most household outlets are only rated for 15 amps. Be sure to verify that the power supply you are using can deliver enough current to operate this unit. Because 30 amps are peak output, if used in a home environment it is only recommended for peak operation for short periods of time; the sustained operation shouldn't be at more than 25 amps of continuous output, with 30 amp peaks for no more than 10-15 minutes.
Note: This unit does not ship with a power cable and it is strongly recommended that this unit be directly wired into a circuit breaker panel by a qualified electrician for proper operation and safety.
Note: Proper electrical connections: RED = Hot, BLACK = Neutral, Chassis Screw = Ground
