It's hard to be 100% sure but from the pictures they look just like a set I
have. (Including the ruler in the pix for reference was a good idea.) Mine
have the mfg. plates and are rated a whopping 40 amps -at- 120V each. Since
they're ganged together they work with 240, each Powerstat handles 120V,
the composite output up to 280V. I bought mine years ago at a garage sale
for $5.00 for the set - one of the best scrounge deals I ever made.
If you need the model let me know (I'm at the office tonight) and I'll

I just picked up a pair of ganged Powerstats at a
garage sale. They weigh in at around 42 pounds for the
two of them. They have no markings other that on the
bottom, where each one says GP58004. Does anyone know
how to identify the voltage or amperage of the thing?
I'm guessing it's a 120v 15a, but how would I know if
it's a 240v?
