    Hi,

    I'm doing an experiment on the effect of load. Does anyone
    know what component to put or use so I can convert the
    Sine wave from the AC outlet to square wave with no changes
    in frequency? Something that can smear the rising amplitidue to
    a fixed value and the same in the opposite end. Can some
    capacitor combination with other components do the trick?
    Thanks.

    U.S. electricity.... 110 volts.. 60 hertz...
    to 110 volts
    I just want the 110 volts 60 hertz line AC to become square
    waves to test out the behavior of a load. What's the best
    parameters to use?

    A sine wave is actually a 'smeared' square wave, not the other way around.
    Be that as it may, depending on just how 'square' you want it, a cheap
    non-sine UPS may fit the bill.

    You really shouldn't mess around with mains voltage electricity. What effect
    are you trying to observe anyway?
