Questions about converting 220 to 110?

I am working on a machine which uses two heaters and a cooler.    Here is the electronics problem.  Right now I have a 15 amp 110v refrigerant compressor and 2 15 amp 110v heaters on the machine.   45 amps 110v.  That means I have to plug this machine into three different 110v plugs on different circuits.  There are cords going everywhere and the whole thing looks messy.  I am sure there is a way to plug this machine into 220 volts with one cord.   The machine all together uses 45 amps 110v which is 4950 watts.  I found a transformer which should do what I want it to do.   http://www.amazon.com/LiteFuze-LT-8000-Voltage-Converter-Transformer/dp/B009AI9KDG This transformer can supply up to 8000 watts from 220v.  This begs the question...How many amps can I draw from 220?  I believe it is 30 amps which is 6600 watts.  I think this would work because the machine draws 4950 watts all together.  But I need advice from the online electronics community.  Will this really work?

The storm 222 V1.0

I have a new mechanism for a knex gun, and hopefully a new storm 220. It can switch between semi auto and full auto and is chain driven. I won't give away the mechanism in case anyone beats me to it, but is there anything you guys could suggest I could add to it? edit: It is now posted with full instructions

Buying nuts and bolts? Answered

Can someone point me to somewhere where I can buy nuts and bolts? I need them to be up to a few cm long, and about small enough to fit through the hole in a TO-220 transistor.  I tend to use them a lot, not just for fixing transistors to heatsinks, but my local hardware stores don't have them Also, I'm looking for those small plastics bits (look like a very small and short bit of pipe) that fit into the TO-220 transistor's hole, before you put the bolt in, electrically isolating the transistor tab from the bolt and the heatsink.

Help with MR16 bulb wiring on motorcycle!

Hi, I'm from India and I own a bajaj pulsar 220 S that has a 35w 12v headlight and I recently bought an aftermarket enduro headlight to fix on it, but the problem is that the headlight I bought has two MR16 bulbls and each bulb has two wires coming from it both white in color, So I'm totally confused with the wiring thing, Should I solder one white wire with a red one from the motorcycles wiring socket and the other white with the black one of the ground socket? I'd appreciate if you could clear that up for me. P.S - I'm a complete noob when it comes to electricals.

Using 110v 60Hz Soldering station with 240v 50Hz?

Hi, I have recently acquired a 110v 60Hz Soldering station but i live in a country which uses 240v at 50Hz. I can get a stepdown transformer to convert the voltage (can choose between 50W and 1600W), but i am wondering will the different frequency damage the soldering station?

220 VAC to 12 VDC with minimum no-load wastage? Answered

Hi,I want to convert 220 VAC to 12 VDC without using a transformer since they consume power even when a load isn't connected to the secondary output.So this is how its to be-A 12 volt dc supply should be available,which will be fed to a relay once a switch is set 'ON'.I could easily depend on a transformer but this 12 VDC supply is to be available always and can't afford the wastage.pls suggest an alternative(and FYI a battery is not applicable in this situation).

Anyone know what this resistor is? Answered

I am working on the eye controller board of the hexapod robot and it has some resistors on it. The parts list calls for 12 220 Ohm resistors but, based on the photos, there are more that what it shows in the text. The 12 near the top of the board I know are the 220 Ohm ones, but I do not know what the others are. The 2 vertical ones near the bottom I believe are 20 Ohm and the horizontal one closest to the bottom 220 Ohm. The 2 located underneath the 28-pin sockets are half-covered by the plastic. Does anyone have a suggestion on the value of these resistors? I included a picture of the board from the instructable page and circled the resistors in question.

Need To AutoStart 1.5hp Motor When Inverter Battery Drops To 11Volts

My Set Up: Car Alternator: 12V / 30Amps Motor: 1.5HP / Single Phase / 220 V / 8.5 Amp / 1420 RPM Battery: 12 V / 185AH x 3 Inverter: 2KV Mains AC: 220 volts / 50Hz 1.5HP motor attached with the 220 volts main supply, is used to run the Car Alternator; the batteries are charged by the alternator. Inverter is used to convert DC to 220v AC to power utilities and computers. I need your advise, to develop a system to auto-start the 1.5HP motor to run the alternator when battery voltage drops to 11 volts and stop the 1.5HP motor when the battery is charged fully to 13.80 volts.

How can i make sure there is no load at all on the 220 end while the relay is inactive, so there is no light flickering?
