I recently bought a record player from the US (its not available here).
The model is the Pyle PNGTT12RBT
It says its designed to run at 120 V 60Hz.
I was a little confused on what the best approach would be to use it here without damaging it. I've seen plenty of voltage...
Just throwing this out there to assay if anyone has done any work on the above or knows anything of it. Would be interesting to hear your views and thoughts if you have come across it or been involved in any way. I have been looking into this since around 2004 and attended a centre where this...
Hi, on my mains I seem to be getting huge variations from the normal 50hz for several minutes at a time. It goes down to 48hz then back to 50-51hz and then will then jump from 51hz sometimes to 65hz but usually hover around 53-57hz for around 2 minutes at a time.
This happens fairly often, what...
We Know that when configured for scaler control, a VFD willadapt its switching modulation to ensure that when frequency is changed, motorterminal voltage will change hence the term Voltage frequency ratio.
Similarly, if we look at the affinity laws for a centrifugalpump we see that a 10 %...
Just wondering if you can help me on this one,
I have a RLC series circuit the values are as below;
R = unknown
L = 800mH
C = 300uF
from there I have calculated;
the resonant frequency to be 10.3Hz
the capacitive reactance 51.50 ohms
The reason I need to know is I need to work...
I'm led to believe that LEDs (as in the actual basic semiconductor device themselves) are comparatively strong emitters of radio frequency interference. Don't know about how much power or where in the spectrum but that's what I was once taught. Just wondering whether anyone has seen this as a...
I'm replacing low voltage halogen with MR11 and MR16 LED bulbs. AC supply would be simplest because of existing wiring, but I'm concerned about LED flicker:

I'm looking at varilight transformers:
I'm doing my first PI and it happens to be on a TT system. I've a question regarding the "Detail of Installation Electrode" box...
1, Type... Is that a simple as it sound? Rod, mat etc?
2, Resistance to earth... Is this another space for the Ze measurement or the resistance of the...

I'm considering buying a used petrol generator but there seems to be some confusion as to what the output frequency is, 50 or 60 Hz.
Is there any way of finding out the output frequency of a generator?
If it did turn out to be 60 Hz, could it be changed to 50 Hz, and if so, what needs to be...
Hello folks! I'm just a newbie here. I'm just confused where did the 60 Hz came from even at 0 volts on the line. I have a data gathering at a generator set using a HIOKI power analyzer. When the generator shuts down, of course the voltage at the lines are zero and the frequency MUST be also...
Hi, Im waiting for a machine from China to arrive to Canada, and here is my question, machine will be 220V 50Hz, and currently in Canada its 110V 60Hz, so most converters i can find in Canada have no problem doing 110V > 220V, but it seems they all give 60Hz anyways, is there a way to convert...
I’m trying to run a gas combi boiler from a 2500kva petrol generator, but the boiler shuts down when connected to the generator displaying a supply problem.
In the boiler house I have 2 separate sockets one coupled to the domestic supply the other one a direct feed from the generator, the...
ElectriciansForums.net (formerly known as ElectriciansForums.co.uk) was setup in April 2006 to provide free electrical advice to both professional and DIY electricians. Whether seeking advice for auto electrics, trying to find electrical installation condition reports (EICR) form downloads, or whether you're here just to talk to other electricians; we've been a first-choice website for tens of thousands of sparkies for well over a decade.
