Default AC to AC converter question

There are three Heavy Duty sockets on this Converter. 1500W Max. I intend to step down 220 volts AC for my 110 volts AC equipment. I am puzzled with the red socket marked as FIXED 100VAC. Instructions does not explain. What does it mean or what is it's use? Thanks.

Is there any way to post a larger photo. The thumbnail does not get bigger so we cannot read it.
