Product Details

Parts Express 5A Variac Variable AC Power Transformer 0-130 VAC

A variac is an extremely handy device that allows the user to dial 110/120 VAC wall voltage up or down from 0~130 VAC, measured by a meter on the front of the unit.

Most often, variacs are used on test benches, either to troubleshoot problems, test experimental circuits, or slowly power up vintage electronics to evaluate and perhaps recondition aging internal components.

They're also used in performing arts and cinematography to control lighting. In areas where line voltage runs higher than standard, use of a variac can improve the function and longevity of electronics.

Current capacity: 5A.

Parts Express 5A Variac Variable AC Power Transformer 0-130 VAC

Hi, would this variac be suitable for connecting to a 4 foot length of ni-chrome wire for use as a heat-generating fixture to bend acrylic sheet?

Asked by: Bilder
It is not designed to be used in that capacity.

How would I use this or any of your variac on a tube amp. that's been boxed for several years? (a home power amp). Thanks.

Asked by: gonzo
If your goal is to reform the electrolytic capacitors in you amp by supplying an increasing voltage to the amp over some period of time, the variac will work fine, but a low-wattage light bulb in series with the amp will do the job just as well and is a LOT cheaper. Do a google search on reforming electrolytics.

Can I use the 5A Variac Variable AC Power Transformer 0-130 VAC to maintain voltage on a dirty power? I'm a guitar player and would like to maintain the correct power to my amp........ Roy

Asked by: RoyG
A power conditioner would be a better option for you. ex: Furman PL-8 Series.
