Hercules is fully universal! Will precisely convert worldwide mains voltage or frequency to what you need, with great accuracy, assuring rock-solid timekeeping and speed control. The output receptacle is universal. Hercules also includes a remote programming port for automated production test; which isn’t needed to operate Hercules, but it’s there if you need it.
Hercules will power devices up to 200 watts (instantaneous power over 300 watts available–please contact us). Voltage AND frequency can be selected as needed, either 115V or 230V AC, at 50Hz or 60Hz, from anywhere in the world, regardless of frequency or voltage available locally. This unit will also do plug and receptacle conversion. Output receptacle style accommodates most worldwide standards.
Why do you need a frequency converter? Devices with motors that turn or vibrate are very dependent on power line (mains) frequency to do their job properly and at the right speed. If you own a device designed for 50Hz (manufactured in Europe or Asia) and you wish to power it in the USA, it will run too fast without a frequency converter. The reverse is also true; eg, if you own a device designed for North America’s 60Hz system, it will run too slow or malfunction if powered in Europe or Asia without a frequency converter.
This speed error is often the difference between a clock that keeps proper time or is way off, a turntable that runs at the right pitch, a shaver/clipper that completely malfunctions vs. providing a proper and comfortable shave, or a pump that fails vs. operating properly. Don’t be fooled by low-quality import products that produce noisy square waves at an incorrect frequency. Hercules (like all KCC Frequency Converters) produce a smooth sine wave at very precisely the frequency you need!
KCC Frequency Converters also clean up your mains power by reconstructing it, acting as a local mini power plant for the device you wish to power. The benefit is that you never have to worry about the quality of the power source when using our frequency converters!
Even if you only need voltage conversion, consider KCC Frequency Converter products to replace those bulky, heavy, noisy transformers with our super quiet units. All KCC Frequency Converter products are designed to be comfortable and quiet anywhere from the bed stand to a high-end audio system. And, Hercules and Thor are great for vacuum-tube based audio equipment.
KCC Hercules and Thor family are designed to be comfortable and quiet anywhere from a production test system to the medium and high-end audio system. Note: If you need short-term, instantaneous power that exceeds 200 watts, please contact us. We have provided special wall adapters (at additional cost) which can provide instantaneous power exceeding 300 watts!
