need help choosing the right UPS with frequency conversion

This was originally posted on APC forums on 6/12/2012


hi, Just looking for some help i have a 12Amp 120v 60Hz equiptment, my home current is 110v/220v 50Hz i need a UPS that has auto-sense the incoming frequency but you will LET ME adjust the output to what you want 60Hz. some of the UPS. When outputting power with a frequency that is different than the input the UPS will be in an alarm state I DO NOT NEED THIS,

Requirement
"i need to adjust the Frequency to what i want 60Hz without putting the UPS in alarm state
My Imput Voltage Imput will be 50Hz either 110 or 220
output i want 60Hz 120/110 volt

The equiptment pull 12-14amp also if UPS only come in 220V i can work with it converting it to 120

DONT HAVE TO HAVE BATTERY BACKUP

thanks

unfortunately, i dont believe we sell just frequency converters. we'd have to look at some type of UPS, like the Smart UPS RT but those are higher end and are probably more expensive than the unit I liked you to 😞

unfortunately, from what i can tell we only have a unit that does 220/120v in and 120v ou (such as this unit here but it cannot change the voltage and then our international Smart UPS RT units can modify and convert frequency but not voltage.

the only other option is perhaps using some type of step down transformer solution maybe but then it will not do 120v in by itself.
