Hello All,

A member of the antiqueradios.com website replied:

'Kenyon T-397 Filament transformer is 
“Conservatively rated not to exceed a 50 degree Centigrade rise at 60 
cycles at full load and is designed with low regulation to permit 
satisfactory operation at partial load.”  Primary 115volts 50/60 cycles.
  Secondary 6.3volts at 12 Amps.  RMS test volts: 2500.  List price: 
$17.50 per Kenyon “T-Line” catalog, April 1955.


Thus I am all set.

Thanks and have a great weekend.

Best Regards,

Hello All,
Looking for the amp capacity of a Kenyon T-397 filament transformer.  I can hook it up to a Variac and get the voltage, but would like to know the amp capacity before I try to use it or pass it along to someone who needs it.
I looked around the web and saw some old Kenyon catalogs in the Bunker of Doom site, but did not see this particular one in any of them.
Thanks in advance for any clues.
Best Regards,
