Hullo guys, i recently purchased a shaving machine with a power adapter that can operate at a voltage of 120V Ac and frequency of 60 Hz. Now unfortunately here in Kampala, Uganda our Op. Voltages and Frequencies are 220-240V AC and 50 Hz respectively. Kindly give me the quickest possible solution. Regards, Ivan My Email: ivbitwire@gmail.com

You need a step down AC transformer 240V to 120V then you can connect the shaver to the 120V outlet. You do not need to worry about the frequency.

SOURCE: Does Anyone know how to test Canon i860 AC Adapter??

Yes I know. put the adapter into the plug and switch on, and put the another side in a glass which contains water, then you can observe water avaporate or not. If water avaporate it is working otherwise it is not working. Just try and send me reply pnbab@hotmail.com

SOURCE: It won't power on..is the ac adapter bad, or something else?

Sorry about that ... my pc just went beserk ... possibly but a sure way to know it to measure its output. Take to any repair shop they would check it for free for you.

This may be hard to find in stores but I strongly suggest you contact Lexmark technical support to request this. They may require your contact info and the printer's serial number for documentation purposes. Thanks

The card is compatible with all the printers, regardless of their mains power setting - the only difference between printers sold in different countries is in their power source - on most of them the power source is a separate and customer replaceable unit.. The data signal coming to and from the printers that this card processes is the same - it's standardized globally.

I have aclock on a frigidaire microwave that is loosing time


A defective clock would be the cause, the voltage is regulated by the oven circuit board, so line voltage would rally need to be way off to affect the operation of the clock. Ranges of line voltage here in USA are 110V-120V

Need to transform 120v power to 240v


Bad news:

UK has 50 Hz electricity, and appliances are rated for local power..
Any appliance made for US market is rated 60 Hz.
50 Hz and 60 Hz electricity are different.

Look at label on your mixer, and then look at labels on local appliances. You will see 50 cycles or 60 cycles. Rarely appliances are labeled 50-60 cycles.
http://www.worldstandards.eu/electricity.htm#voltage
http://waterheatertimer.org/See-inside-main-breaker-box.html#Hz
http://waterheatertimer.org/What-is-3-phase-electric.html#120-240

Hz Hertz or cycles or frequency is number of rotations the electric generator turns per second.

Some appliances are rated 50-60 cycles and will work worldwide.
However most appliances are rated 50 or rated 60 but not both.
60 cycle motor will not perform as expected when connected to 50 cycles. And might overheat.
Generally, most motors can be converted to different voltages by taking motor to motor shop (if you can find one these day)
However electronic controls cannot be converted between 120V and 230V, nor will 50 Hz electronics work with 60 Hz power

Sorry Sue.
Buy another mixer.
Business will benefit from surge of consumer buying.

I need to know the voltage for behringer power supply adator


The power supply for the FCA202 is rated for 12V DC at 200 mA. (The AC power adapter connects to 120V AC, 60 Hz in the US. The UK version is for 240V, 50Hz.)

The specifications are on page 26 of the User's Manual: http://www.behringer.com/assets/FCA202_P0451_M_EN.pdf .

I recently purchased an Audiovox Clock Radio CR20 from the USA on a visit to that country. I am back in my home country India and started using the clock radio. I find that the clock is not keeping correct...


The reason of your problem is that your local mains frequency is 50 Hz and when you use 230V to 120V converter, this simple device can not convert frequency only the voltage. Your clock is synchronized to the mains frequency which is 50 Hz instead of 60 Hz and the clock goes slowly. It is late (60-50)/60 ---> 10 minutes in every hour.
I am sorry but I think your problem can not be fixed. ( It would be possible to convert the frequency but the cost of this kind of device would be higher than the value of this Audiovox)

Thanks.

I have an RCA Modem with an AC power input. 4 pin Can you tell me what voltage the input is and what frequency?


It should be on the power adapter itself after output.
If your in the US it's 120V 60 Hz.
Why are you asking about frequency?

I'm going to Europe and wanted to know how to convert electricity so when I plug in my computer it won't fry the computer


This is a copy from the Radio Shack site. The quick answer is go to pretty much any electronic store or most travel stores and buy a Foreign Power Converter.

AC to AC Power Conversion (Foreign Voltage Converters) Purpose of Converter / Explanation of Operation AC-to-AC voltage converters, or travel converters, are designed to convert the voltage used in a foreign country to the voltage required for a particular AC device. These converters are either transformer-based or solid-state, and this affects what type of devices the converter can power. In addition to converting the power, you will often need to also use a plug adapter. Plug adapters are generally either built into the converter, or provided as separate parts. They are also sold separately, for use with multi-voltage devices that are designed to convert the power internally.
Selecting a Converter These are one of the more confusing of the power conversion devices. Because of the range of voltages, plug types and converter designs, many customers find that they need help determining exactly which converter they need. To aid in that process, we have put together a short worksheet to help you determine what type of converter is needed: We recommend that you print out thi sheet when taking a number of different devices to a different country.
First, you should determine the electrical requirements (voltage, frequency, and wattage) for the device(s) you will be taking with you. This information is generally on a label or embossed into the back or bottom of the device. Make a note of the voltage(s), frequency or frequencies, and the wattage indicated for each device.
  • The voltage may be given as either V, VAC or VDC. The standard voltage for US devices is 120 V. Devices that are designed to operate using different input voltages will be labeled, such as 110/120 V, or 120/240 V.
  • The frequency will be given in Hz. The standard frequency for US devices is 60 Hz. Devices that are designed to operate using different frequencies will be labeled, such as 50/60 Hz.
  • The wattage will be given in either watts (W) or volt-amps (VA). If the wattage is not listed on the device, you will need to contact the device's manufacturer for this information. If you have the maximum current consumption (in amps), you can calculate the wattage by multiplying the voltage (V) times the current consumption (A).
Next, you will need to know the electrical requirements for the country you are going to be visiting.
Next, you will need to compare your equipment requirements to the country's information to determine whether you need a Step-up or Step-down Voltage converter.
  • If your equipment accepts the voltage and frequency provided by the country you will be visiting, then only a Plug Adapter will be required.
  • If the voltage of the target country is higher than the voltage required by your device(s), you will need a Step-Up Voltage Converter.
  • If the voltage of the target country is lower than the voltage required by your device(s), you will need a Step-Down Voltage Converter.
Once you know what type of converter or adapter you need, consult our list of travel power conversion products to find one that meets your requirements.
Cautions
  • The AC outlet in many foreign bathrooms is for low-wattage devices only. To avoid damage to your converter and/or attached device, check with your host or hotel before powering a high-wattage device (such as a hair dryer) from this plug.
  • Do not use a voltage converter with electronic devices such as televisions, VCR's and computers unless the device indicates that it can handle both 50 Hz and 60 Hz.
  • Do not use heating appliances, such as hair dryers, irons and coffee-makers, on a transformer-based voltage converter.
  • Do not use non-heating electronic devices, such as calculators, electric razors and portable audio players, on solid-state voltage converter.
  • Do not use 110-120 VAC Surge protectors or Uninterruptible Power supplies on a 220-240 VAC system. Even with a step-down power converter, damage could occur as the two power systems are wired differently.
