Re: Variac buy ?

David B., all,

These are nice variacs, to say the least, but they are NOT
1256D Powerstats, which are rated at 240/280 volts at
56 amps each. These are GE made units each rated at
500 or 560 volts at 30 amps each. They could still be pa-
ralleled for 90 amps of current rating although most of us
can only feed them with 240 volt single phase and not
480 volts.
