The Power Hero VTR1000 is a 700 Watt Step-Down Voltage Transformer. It is used in the UK or other 220-240V country to power electrical equipment from the USA, Canada or Japan, or other countries where the voltage is 100 – 120V.
A step-down voltage transformer converts 200 – 240 Volts to 100 – 120 Volts. The output is pure AC and the voltage transformer can be used with all appliances rated 0 – 700W.
The step down voltage transformer can be used for long periods of time if the load is quite low (350W or less). Used near its maximum of 700W the transformer is fine for fairly short periods of time. However it may over-heat and reset itself, causing the safety cut-out circuit breaker to operate and switch the transformer off if it is used for too long near its maximum. It is good practice to always allow margin for error and to account for voltage surges.
This Power Hero voltage transformer needs to be connected to the mains via the rear connection (we supply a power lead). The output is delivered by the the adjacent US power socket. This socket is designed to accept US, Japanese or Canadian style plugs. It can manage a maximum of 700 Watts. You can use power adapters to plug more than one item into it, but you must ensure the total combined wattage does not exceed the voltage transformer’s capacity.
The step down transformer can be used to power appliances with a rating of 700 Watts or below (although it is important to allow some margin for error). It can be used with such items as computers, TVs and Hi-fis and some industrial equipment (check rating to be sure). This kind of transformer is not suitable for continuous use and cannot be used for long periods of time at or near its maximum capacity.
The Power Hero range of step down voltage transformers run efficiently and are lighter in weight than many competitor voltage converters in the same price range.
For customers in European countries where they do not use the three pin plug that we use in the UK and Ireland we provide a suitable Euro power lead with the transformer.
