I was recently talking with Superior Electric and found out an error in info
that they gave me.The Austrailian distributor is Electric Smith
Products-011-61-277-16303. Also, your variac is a standard # 126U-3. They
modified it to have a longer shaft and gave it a new custom part # of
126-1050. For your info. It takes a brush #RB126. I also asked them about
derating for 50hz and they replied that they spec almost all of there variacs
as 50/60 hz. Not to bother derating from specs.
