Model/Make: Variac Transformer Model No. TDGC2-2KM
This is an autotransformer. One end connects to the wall outlet and the socket output voltage can be varied from a small AC voltage to higher than the line voltage. It is sometimes used for testing equipment that may have a power supply problem.
Using this thing to control an AC fan speed would be like using a nuclear reactor to boil an egg.
