Taking a refrigerator, freezer, or cooler from the USA to another part of the world isn’t an everyday situation, yet it requires careful consideration particularly if you’re taking a model designed for the 115-120/60 Hz standard (as used in the US, Canada, and Mexico) to a region where 220-240 volts/50 Hz is typical; in fact, 220-240 volts/50 Hz is the standard throughout most of the world.

Hence, its essential to attend to voltage conversion requirements and use a transformer/converter that can handle your appliance’s wattage requirements, but there’s another essential facet to the equation: the frequency of the AC line voltage. In the USA and Canada it’s 60 Hz or cycles per second. In most of the world it’s 50 Hz. Not accommodating for differences in frequency will result in 20-percent lower motor speed and potential overheating when using a 60 Hz motor at 50 Hz and, conversely, definite motor burnout and overheating when using a 50 Hz motor at 60 Hz as the motor will be running roughly 20-percent higher.

Brands such as Sub-Zero, Wolf, Gaggenau, Marvel, Miele, Thermador, Jenn-Air, GE, LG, Whirlpool, Fisher & Paykel, Bosch, Northland, Gorenje, Kitchen Aid, and U-Line emphasize the need for a transformer/converter that will not only convert voltage, but also the electricity speed (as measured in Hertz). Thankfully, ACUPWR manufactures the ADC series: a line of step down transformer/converters designed specifically for refrigerators, freezers, coolers, ice machines, and much more.

The ACUPWR ADC-550 model allows refrigerators, freezers, and coolers designed for 115-120 volts/60 Hz to operate at 220-240 volts/50 Hz. It is rated for 550-watt loads and suitable for home, commercial, and industrial applications. This model comes with a Schuko (type F) wall plug and North American NEMA 1-15R input receptacle for up to 15 amps output.

As with all ACUPWR products, the ADC-550 is proudly manufactured in the USA using the best materials available. This includes copper wiring that allows the ADC-550 to operate under heavy duress, and in the most heavy-duty situations. Unlike less expensive, foreign-made products using aluminum wiring, our products are designed to last for decades. Each unit is hand assembled in our factory and bench-tested at a full-load (the maximum stated wattage) to ensure years of dependability. Among the ADC-550’s features is thermal protection (CTOC); the unit will turn off when overheated.

ACUPWR stands by its products by providing a lifetime warranty and insurance coverage up to $10,000. We count military and government agencies, including NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center, among our customers for good reason: ACUPWR products are the best-made, most dependable, and most long-lasting transformers available.

When considering which model ACUPWR transformer/voltage converter is best for your needs, keep in mind that our products are safe for continuous power at 120 percent beyond the stated wattage, unlike other products that adhere to an industry standard of 2-3 times higher than the appliance’s stated wattage. So, for example, an appliance rated for 300 watts of consumption would, according to the industry standard, require a 900-watt transformer. With an ACUPWR transformer, you can safely use your 300-watt appliance with a 300-watt transformer/converter; our products, remember, can handle 120-percent beyond their stated wattage handling ability.
