Re: [TCML] Variac Ratings?

It seems that this form factor might have multiple ratings dependent on the windings.I was convinced that mine was identical to kens, but now I'm not so sure. 
The 30A rating makes sense for mine, which appears to have #10 wire.
Yurtle turtle, Could you possibly verify your wire gauge and # of turns? Mine has 300 turns.

My label is partially covered by the motor parts, but mine is a GE Voltpac, and if I recall, mine's 540 volts, and maybe 30 amps each.I'll have to move some stuff around in the garage to get close enough to read it, but I'll try this weekend. If it's not too hard, I may remove the parts so I can get a pic of the label.

At one point or another I owned about I think four variacs like that.Numerous other list members bought some at the same time, forsomething like $1 each. I seem to remember the rating was somethingstrange like 120 volts at 50 amps.EricOn Fri, Feb 24, 2017 at 9:26 PM, jhowson4  wrote:> Hello all, I acquired this 3 gang variac from a list member many years ago.> https://tinyurl.com/h6ajojo>> Https://tinyurl.com/zu6prdx> I was wondering it anyone on the list could help me identify its ratings.
