Check the label on your system's power supply, looking for "120/240 VAC" or something similar. If you find it, then this means that your system has a universal power supply, which supports both 120 VAC (used in US) & 240 VAC (used in UK).
You can also search for this in your system's user manual.
You can also use a UPS which outputs 120/240 VAC. You will also benefit from the clean conditioned voltage output from the UPS, besides the capability to have the chance to power off the system gracefully in case of power outage.

You need to check the rating plate on your power supply

If it was bought in the UK it will be set for 240v 50 hz

The US power supply will be 110v 60hz the supplies are not switchable re power input.
