Why would we need a 60Hz frequency Converter?  The reason is that 60Hz  power is the predominant frequency for North and Central America.  However, due to worldwide sourcing, 50Hz & 60Hz power has become an interchangeable commodity.  Therefore, there is a greater need for 60Hz frequency converters.  There are 2 significant differences in the power between 60Hz and 50Hz.  The cycles per second (Hz) is always different and sometimes the voltage is different.  When operating 60 Hz equipment in non 60 Hz countries, you will need a 60HZ frequency converter. The great thing about PS&C frequency converters are that our systems simultaneously convert both the voltage and frequency (Hertz/Hz).

What is 60Hz Frequency?

A 60Hz electrical system means that the power completes 60 cycles of complete wave sequence per second while 50Hz means that it completes 50 cycles per second. 60Hz is usually associated with 440, 460, 480, & 600 voltages. As power/electricity has evolved across the world, 60Hz is typically found in North America and Central America while 50Hz is found elsewhere in the world. However, there are exceptions to every rule. For instance, in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia they have 380V, 60Hz.
