Power Transformer Type 1760
The Type 1760 is a sturdy power transformer, intended as a step-down unit, designed to power vintage Synchronous AC motors such as those commonly found in disk recording lathes and reproducer turntables, originally meant for 60 Hz/110 VAC operation, from 50 Hz/ 230 VACs supply.
The speed will of course be slower, so custom machined pulleys, capstans, idlers or rollers will also be required. The voltage supplied by this unit is not 110 VAC, but a bit lower, calculated to prevent overheating of motors designed for 60 Hz when operating at 50 Hz.
