A voltage converter, also known as a voltage transformer or voltage regulator, is an electrical device that converts voltage from one level to another. This can be used to change the voltage of an AC source to match the voltage required by a specific piece of equipment or to change the voltage of an AC source to match the voltage of a different country's power grid.
Voltage converters can be found in a variety of forms, such as step-up converters, which raise the voltage, and step-down converters, which lower the voltage. They can be purchased as a standalone device or built into the equipment.
Example: If you want to convert 110 volts to 220 volts, you would use a step-up voltage converter. This would increase the voltage from 110V to 220V, allowing you to use equipment designed for 220V in a 110V power outlet.
Note: Voltage converters can also be used for other units like V, kV, mV, and so on.
