I am going to move from Germany back to the states soon and I would like to avoid selling some of my larger and more preferred electronics. I know I can buy a step up converter but I don't want to have a giant black box sitting in my living room for the next five years. Electronics is not really my thing but I can learn and figure out what I need to. I just need to know if it is possible to permanently convert 220v to run off of 110v.

I read TimAnderson's Instructable on building a homemade welder from microwave oven transformers, but that instructable is for a 110V setup, what should I change to make it work using 220V transformers on 220V. (I already gathered all the materials...)https://www.instructables.com/id/Build-a-Microwave-Transformer-Homemade-Welder/ ....Link to TimAnderson's homemade welder?

Hi I'm fairly new to Arduino (I'm actually using Netduino), and I have been puzzling with making a voltage regulator, for a 100W lightbulb. But my issue is, that I would like to control it digitally, with a micro controller - and not with the usual potentiometer. Is there some kind of digital potentiometer I could use, or create? Or better yet, instructables on doing something similar to this? I've been looking, but all seems to be manually operated, and most of them are for low voltage DC. I'm pretty new to electronics as well, and I definitely would prefer, to NOT burn down the house. Any advice, comments and links are much appreciated :)

Hello, i am unable to find answers to this anywhere so I hope you can help me! Is it possible to supply a "normal" computer monitor with 220V DC instead of AC? All the specifications list the input only as AC, but I would think the monitor have an internal power supply which converts 220V AC to 6-48V DC which uses a diode bridge and my basic electric knowledge tells me this bridge will work if supplied with DC as well. Would this work? Does actual "220V DC monitors" exist? I cant seem to find any..

Hello I purchased this sauna used a couple days ago, and its not turning on.. The previous owner sold it as having only an issue with the fuse, but I have exchanged all fuses, and Im assuming its one of the three components that are running in the rectangular unit mounted on top of the sauna. I will post all the photos so you are able to see detailed views of everything - I have now ordered a replacement for the power supply (s-35-12) as I cant imagine the transformer would short the entire sauna. internal fuses are all 3 amp, this is the power supply (but the power running from mains is standard 13amp): https://www.aliexpress.com/store/product/MiWi-S-35-12-AC-DC-switching-mode-power-supply/700113_1699513295.html And from what I can tell there is a sort of voltage regulator on that PSU which has a phillips white screw which is used for adjusting. My guess is that previous owner set it for wrong output and it blew the PSU? Alternatively there is the main board, but I wouldnt know what to look for, nor how to replace, as it had no particular model number. I tested current coming from mains to the main board (sorry I dont have technical name for that) and electricity is definitely arriving there, but not sure where (or if) it goes after. I tried to swap one of the kettle lead fuses for the one on the PSU board, and then power on, but as soon as I tripped the power to on it blew the fuse.. image 1 and 2 are overview, image 3 is writing on PSU, image 4 is transformer, image 5 is main board and image 6 is PSU (which I have ordered replacement for). Thank you for your help!

Actually, I want to make a Coil Gun for which I require high Current and EMF. So, I went online looking for step-up generators but they are too expensive! So, I thought that why not convert my home output (220V AC) to DC and use it. Please tell me how to make a circuit that converts 220VAC to 220VDC and what components are required. I currently have the following components: 1. Capacitor: 350SV 160uF 2. 1N4007 Rectifier Diodes x10 3. AC Capacitor 250V 1.1uF And I have many more components such as transistors, capacitors, etc. I'll try to get the components that you tell me to, But please help me!!

I have a home used subwoofer with 220V AC. It has a transformer input of 220V AC, and Output of 12V 2A. I want to fix that subwoofer unit into my boot of the car. My car is running on 12V NS 60 Car battery. To run the unit with car battery I may have to bypass the transformer of the unit and give power from the battery directly to the Amplifier. I have two questions. 1. Is it safe to get a direct power line from the car battery to the unit. 2. How to identify the place in the circuit board to connect the power line from the car battery. (Sample diagrams are very much appreciated)

Hello, so my electrotechnical (is that a word?) knowledge is about zero point zero, but ALL I want to do is make this motor do its work and rotate his fine ass. That's the only thing, nothing more, nothing less. What is the easiest way to do that for a clueless hopeless piece of scrap like me? Note: it's important that the motor goes 30 rpm. I added pics of the motor for clearification. PS. I saw this awesome motor pack thing with clear instructions which would have been ideal for me, but the site doesn't send its products to the Netherlands :( link: http://www.monsterguts.com/store/product.php?productid=17760&cat;=3&page;=1

Hello instructors, I'm currently playing with Rasberry pis, and I just started a new project. I found information showing how to re-use the screen of a dead laptop via a controler board you can find on eBay. I'm planning to integrate all this in a suitcase to create a mobile retro gaming console. It should be easy to add a simple 220V plug to power all this. But I was just thinking it could also be nice to be able to use this on battery as I also have many laptop batteries @home. Rasberry power input is about 5V 3A Audio amp input is from 1.8V to 12V Screen controller board is 12V 4A Here is what I want to do : > When plugged : Add a circuit to charge the battery via a 220V input. That circuit should also convert the 220V to the power needed for the Pi, the audio amp and the screen. > Unplugged : Add a circuit to convert the battery output to the power needed for the Pi, the audio amp and the screen. I have no idea where and what to search for. Should I reuse the laptop power unit ? Any help would be highly appreciated. Please excuse my English mistakes. This is not my mother tongue. Thx. B²

I've got a relay problem.i made a proximity sensing tubelight that goes on/off when an object moves above it .i used 3 ic's :lm741,cd4017,and a 555 timer and i added a relay to the outputs of the cd4017 counter to the relay via a transistor to protect my ic's.however when i don't connect the 220v ac to the load of the relay it functions fine but when i connect 220v ac to the load ,the relay keeps clicking on and off.i have seen the voltage ratings for the relay .it is a 5v relay and can handle 250 v ac but it does not work properly.The whole circuitry is powered by a 9v battery.i am not sure whether it is a problem of not enough power or something else..i'm a electronics hobbyist and i need help .PLS ANSWER?.

Question by TheGreatResistor | last reply
I wired an AC in my room to the central heating unit, but the electronics inside were destroyed(only the motor worked). I've wired the motor to a dimmer switch (and of course the cap it had) but there are still 3 (or so) wires left. The way I've wired it i can control the rpm to a certain point but then it starts making a weird humming noise. From what i can('t) tell this thing is frequency controlled for lower rpm (or at least that's what a friend told me) I've also wired a temperature relay in series to the dimmer switch so it stops when it starts blowing cold air. So, i was wondering what am I supposed to do with those extra wires, it doesn't say anywhere what they are/do I don't know if you can see it clearly in the pic. the motor runs on 220V (well I don't know what the voltage is after the dimmer.) It says 220V on the motor but when I run it on that voltage for about 20-30 minutes it gets REALLY hot. (and the voltage in my room is really low, about 200-210 V sometimes it goes up to 220V) So, the question is have i wired it correctly or should i make some sort of controller for it. Thanks in advance! (Also this thing heats up the room in no time, when the input temperature is about 30-40C)
