The Voltage to Watts Conversion Tool allows users to convert volts, watts, and amps using an online calculator. Watts are also known as volt-amps and are a unit of electrical measurement typically used in AC power circuits. This converter works by filling in any of two of the three fields to calculate the value of the third field.
Here is an example of how this conversion tool is used. A security system installer may need to calculate the distance cable that a power cable can be run to a CCTV camera or HD security camera and they first need to calculate how many amps a 24V AC power supply outputs. Typically, 24V AC power supplies have VA (voltage amps) ratings and not amps. For example a 24VAC50 power supply is 24 volt, 50 voltage amps.
Please visit our Calculators, Converters, and Tools page for additional online applications.
Example 1: To convert volts to amps for a 24V VA50 power supply, enter 24 volts and 50 Watts. Click Calculate.
Example 2: To convert amps to watts for a 12V DC 500mA power supply, enter 12 volts and .5 amps. Click Calculate.
How To Convert Volts to Watts
The formula to convert voltage to watts is watts = amps x volts. This tool can actual convert any value as long as you enter values for any two of the three fields: Amp Voltage Watt.
