Re: SOLA Constant Voltage Transformer

New poster here, just wondering if anyuone can help me with this beast.
I'm sort of hoping to use it as an isolation transformer for my
scanner. Overkill, I know, but it cost me all of 15 bucks. The
problem is the voltage it produces on the secondary is 132 volts with
line voltage in. The plate states secondary voltage is 118, so what's
causing the overage? Do I not have it loaded enough (rating, IIRC is
2.5 A) or could it be the capacitor failing? Any advice is

How are you measuring the voltage?
