Can I buy or make an adapter to hook 2 generators together to run a 220 volt welder?


Obviously, the phases would be out of sync (unless by some miracle you started the engines with perfect timing. So you need a kind of frequency changer or syncronizer or phase corrector.

This apparatus us used for combining power from multiple generators (solar, wind, hydro, etc.) into a "smart" grid. I'm not aware of any hand-held, home-user type of equipment. That sort of equipment is typically mounted on the wall. Absence of evidence is not proof of non-existence, but I generally don't think that such a device would be easy to sell, so I couldn't imagine anyone investing in making such a product. This might be a real DIY build. And I would suggest asking for help from the electrical engineering SE.

As a side note, phase sequence checkers (or synchronoscopes) can be hand held. And I feel confident that you could retrofit something from an old solar panel type of system.

edit- often synchronizing is accomplished through synchronizing the motors. Source:...

Я покажу как собрать простой, но достаточно мощный, генератор на 220 вольт.
- коллекторный мотор, можно другой на 12 вольт
- насадка на ось мотора - патрон от дрели
- бесперебойник или инвертор с 12 на 220
- диод на 10 ампер: Д214,Д242,Д215,Д232,КД203 и т. д.
- провода
- велосипед
- и желательно аккумулятор на 12 вольт
- закрепляем велосипед так, что бы заднее колесо крутилось свободно, вывешиваем его
- прикручиваем патрон на ось мотора
- крепим мотор так, что бы патрон плотно прижимался к колесу, можно подтянуть его пружиной
- подключаем мотор к аккумулятору: минусовой провод мотора к минусу аккумулятора, плюсовой провод мотора к аноду диода, катод диода к плюсу аккумулятора
- аккумулятор соединяем с бесперебойником или с инвертором
Всё! К бесперебойнику можно подключать потребители на 220 вольт и пользоваться электричеством! Как только аккумулятор разрядится, достаточно будет покрутить...

A generator is a core component to many people's emergency preparedness plans. (Maybe you have a cool charcoal powered or a multi-fuel generator.) However many fail to think through how exactly they will power the items they want to run when the grid is down.

In June of 2012 my family experienced a 10 day power outage. It was eye opening. It was 100 degrees during the day with periods of heavy rain. I had to run a sump pump to keep my basement dry, a refrigerator, freezer for food preservation, a portable AC unit in the living room to protect my infant, we charged phones, and ran the wifi router. I had power cords everywhere. It was a pain. I decided then and there I would find a better way.

A generator transfer switch is the legal and proper way to power your home with an emergency generator. There are three main types: automatic, manual transfer sub panel and a breaker interlock. Each has varying degrees of complexity, benefits and expense.

Automatic transfer...

life is strange, and sometimes quite the adventure. when i picked this unit, i wanted to treat myself, to a good belly laugh when the wind is blowing 90, my 5th wheel is rocking back and forth, and the rest of the neighborhood is dark.please note the pristine factory sealed box i received, and keep your eye on the top left corner of the control panel.

first basic rules for all purchases like this.

1. Always purchase a protection plan. no brainer, and from square trade, a sound investment.

2. NEVER EVER, EVER, NEVER Run a combustion engine in an enclosed space, unless the UFO
is coming, and you have a full jug of grape juice to go with it.

Not a fan of waiting for a delivery between, 9am to 9pm either at my home, or at my job seeing how i have ... full...

Converting 220 volts to 110 volts is possible. You can convert 220 volts to 110 volts by either using an adapter plug or removing the existing 220 receptacle from the outlet box.

Q: I would like to know if I can convert 220 volts to 110 volts without using a step down transformer?

A: Short answer is: “yes”, you can do this without a step down transformer.

To give you a specific answer I would have to know the exact application and the specific situation. However, the most common example would be replacing an electric range or dryer to a natural gas unit that now only requires 120V power.

Option 1:

You can purchase an adapter plug that inserts in to the existing 125/250V outlet and converts it to a 15A 120V regular outlet complete with overload protection in the form of a pop-up breaker, or a simple fuse.

Option 2:

Another option is to remove the existing 30 or 50A, 125 / 250 Volt receptacle from the...

Problem: My welder needs 220v power. My dryer is on a 30A 220v circuit but to swap the dryer cord for the welder cord, I need to move the dryer. This is a pain. Can I make or buy an extension cord with two outlets on it so I don't need to swap the plugs?

This does not appear to be available on the internets.

There is no problem with building an adapter to plug the welder into a dryer outlet and instructions for this about. However, I'm hoping to scare up something like this Y adapter extension cord but rated for 220 volts and 30 amps. The welder has a NEMA 6-30/6-50 plug on it right now, but that is simple to change. My ideal configuration would be male dryer plug/female dryer plug/female NEMA 6-30/6-50.

I'm unclear on the best and safest way to wire this together.

The overarching goal is to be able to plug the welder in without unplugging the dryer, so if there's a better solution, please share. Or if there's a premade solution that's great too. DIY is...
