I am looking for a 220v/50Hz to 110v/60hz step down transformer - any help please? Answered
I want to purchase a computerized sewing machine for my wife from the US, however this machine is VERY sensitive, and manufacturer does not recommend running it on different voltage than 110v.
I have checked with them, and the required input for it is:2.4 wattage. The amp is .02 and the voltage 120.
I have not managed to find a reasonably priced step down transformer which can also transform the frequency - only one, but it costs a few thousands of dollars :)Please, help! This machine is not sold here, not in Europe, not even similar model.
One answer I've got from a company specializing in such reliable converters:
Since your sewing machine is computerized and very sensitive we do not feel confident that it will work properly with a voltage converter because of the cycle or hertz difference. Here it is 60 hz and Israel it is 50hz and converters do not change the cycles. your sewing machine may be adversely effected.
