It would not be OSHA approved if in the US in an industrial location.

While not recomended practice, it can be done in the US to run off of 4 wire 240. You are just connecting to one half of the 240 outlet.

If you are in the UK or elsewhere with 240/250 volt mains- do not do this, use a voltage reducing transformer instead..

In the US, the standard is 120 /240 Or put another way- a 240 volt circuit in the home in the US, has 2 120 volt branches that share a common return, the 240 is derived across the 2 "120 sources"- hence your 2 pole breakers on 240 volt branches. If the socket is 3 terminal- which was old code- ground and the return were common at the outlet, it is a matter of just making sure the 240 volt plug terminals the 120 volt drill gets attached to is the ground/return (the one with the nib on it to make it index correctly in the outlet- (should be the wide blade lead or white and one black in the drill goes to either"hot" side of the plug- either one will work, and only one. On a 4 wire outlet, which is new code- the return goes to the white wire of the drill. And the black goes to either one of the hot sides. If drill has conductive case and grounding wire- that should connect to the outlet ground.

Mark on plug which two blades are used, so if you take it somewhere else, you can check (which should be standard operating procedure) with a meter to make sure their outlet is wired correctly.

I buy My playstation 3 in u.s the power supply is 110v 1.5A. In my country the voltage is 220. Can i use 220v 150watts transformer


The playstation 3 is dual voltage, meaning that as long as you have the right cable (plug for the wall socket) it will run 100 - 240v.
I believe the only exception to the universal power supply is the PAL 60GB PS3 (CECHC01) model. That power supply APS-227 is not compatible with voltages under 220V.

Want to change my 110v plug on my dewalt radio to 240v


Your radio must be a import from the U.S.A. Your radio will not work on 240v YOU WILL BLOW IT UP!!! You need a step down transformer 240v to 110v to goto your radio, you will have to do a search on Ebay in Power tools. You sould notice the lead on your 110v radio is not like normal flex as its only single insulated for 110 volts.... Don't put a normal plug on or you may have to call the fire brigade!!

Need to convert my 110 volt 15amp to 240 volt


You can buy a transformer which allows all 110v power tools to work from a 240v supply. You will also need to change the plug on the compressor to a yellow 110v type. You can buy transformers for around £25 and around £3 for the plug

Power conversion


Ram,

Good day mate, no problem you can plug your dvd direct to your outlet since it indicates 100 - 240V it only means your player is capable of having either 110V 0r 220V.

note: also try to check 1st if you will see a voltage selector at the back of your dvd player. it's either a slide switch indicating 110 or 220V. if no sign of this selector no problem you can plug your player straight to your socket.

cheers

Using dryer in 220V country


There are two systems in use in the states
110v dryers are available that fit a standard 11v 15a socket
110/220v fit the oversize 'dryer' sockets, and they are two 110v phases 90 degreees apart
the motor runs of a single phase 110v.
there is 220v between the 'outside', the active lines of the two phases, at any time, but it is not useable to provide mechanical power as a single service, due to the complicated shape of the wave form when you add out of phase voltages together, but is ok to drive the heaters, they have no mechanical efficiency requirement
A 2 phase 110v heater it means 3kw can be supplied without a 30 amp circuit
but it becomes difficult to use a single phase 220-240v transformer to provide 2x110v 90degree 2 phase current unless you specially buy one in. .
High power applications in 220-240v are generally supplied by 415v 3 phase 60deg supplies,

Any transformer would be onsellable at the end of your posting, to your replacement, who would doubtless be in the same boat as you, with a heap of 'stuff' that needs to run.

UK Aus NZ may be sources of transformers, or dryers to suit.
check with Australian UK NZ suppliers as well as local Indian ones, as those countries are also nominal 240v single phase home suplies and they may have (1) the dryer, or (2)the transformer to suit the 110 2 phase dryer

How to change tension from 120V to 220V


If you are sending a sewing machine which runs on 120volts to a region that has a 240volt power supply you will need to get a
power step down converter that will fit into the socket of the 220volt supply ,and will have a socket that will hold the plug of the 120volt supply going to your machine.
the converter must reduce the 240v down to 110v .

110v - 240v


Well it may be compatible but it should hav a switch on the rear side to choose either 110 or 240V.Check for this but you probably burned primary side of main transformator and you'll have to replace it or to find somebody who is able to fix it

Power


Ive never had this fault but it could be possible. My first reaction is to swap the Power supply unit. or simply just check that the voltage is set correctly for your country. if UK 240v if US 110v little slide on back of power supply unit. Try plugging the power cord into a different socket first though my be you electricity socket at fault.

Hope this is some help
