You could simply reverse wire it and measure with a standard AC volt meter
(apply AC to
the high voltage side and measure the low voltage side with no load). This
is in step
down configuration (be careful of course). Input voltage / reading =
voltage ratio. Then
in normal hookup, whatever your input is, simply multiply by the ratio.
This will be
roughly your open circuit voltage.
