Hello all! I just moved to Ireland with my U.S. music equipment in tow, and after doing a little googling I'm still having trouble getting the answers I'm looking for. So here goes: I bought a converter which has a transformer in it that is capable of handling 50W, as well as a "solid state power converter for non-electronic devices" that can handle 2000W. Here is my question: what about the solid state power converter makes it incapable of being used for electronics? Is it the waveform shape? Power is power, right, so if it can output a certain current at the standard U.S. 120VAC, why is it unusable with electronics? It seems to me the only thing that could possibly distinguish a 1500 watt load from a ceramic heater and a 1500 watt load from 10 guitar amps is changes in power factor due to capacitive/inductive effects...what am I missing? Could I possibly hurt anything besides the converter by trying to drive my equipment with it? Also, can anyone explain to me or point me to a schematic of this mysterious 'solid state power converter'? Is it just some sort of switching supply topology? Thanks for the insight.
