I need a reasonably cheap circuit that will transform 240v @ 8A (50hz) to 240v @ 1A (50z) Answered

. The target device will only pull as much current as it needs. An eight amp supply should work OK.

Exactly as Nacho says Voltage (240VAC) is the 'pressure', the potential difference between point a and b. Amperage is how much is flowing. An 8 amp supply won't FORCE 8 amps down the line, it's simply capable of SUPPLYING 8 amps.

The device I am using will use any and all power available to it therefore I require a circuit that will limit the output to 1 amp

You might want to edit or re-ask your question with that info. I can't comment on current-controlled output with any degree of accuracy.
