Hi

i live in norway and we have 240 volt here. just got hold of a SpeakerCraft BB835 8-Channel... amp that runs on 110 volts. i open the caseing and followed the power cords from the power inlet. says there is a jumper for 110V and one for 240V , will it run here on 240 V if i move that jumper ??

thanks

Jon Valset

Take the risk if you will attempt to change the voltage. but if your are willing to use the amplifier just take it to any authorized personels who knows. OK?

110-220 volt voltage converter power transformer 220 volt voltage converters 240 ...run on 120 volt 60 cycles (60hz) and most of the worlds run on 220/240 volt ...

The DC18RC are most likely to charged the BL1830 battery, which is the most popular of 18V Makita power tools. It is a Li-ion battery.

And the DC18RC battery charger has two volt 110 Volt and 240 Volt.

The 240 Volt DC18RC charger can replace model DC18RA & DC18SD because of its improved performance and full compatibility with Makita's NEW 'Star' labelled batteries that communicate between the tool, battery & charger. And, it is a fast charger.

It can charge a Makita BL1830 Battery in approx 22 minutes.

But, I do not recommend to convert a makita charger model DC18RC at 110 volt to 240 volts.

The reason is as below:

1. This will void product warranty ! If you follow this mod,__you do it on your own risk__ !

2. There are several comments that described

same model # but with different design and components.

Please beware that this mod might not work on your charger

or worst, will damage it.

Only perform this mod if you know your way around with electronics !

I can't find an online manual for the model of the appliance you are talking about, so I'm unable to figure out the wattage it draws. Nor do I know where you are in the world and the voltage you are running at, so I can't tell you straight off. But I can tell you how to figure it out very easily:

I imagine that know what your main power supply voltage is (either 240 volt or 110 volt).

You can look at the appliance and there will be a data sticker with the wattage rating on it somewhere (or it will be in the install/Owner manual).

Now you have these 2 bits of information we can do a simple sum:

Watts divided by Volts = Amps

Therefore example calculations look like this:

If you have a 500 watt appliance on a 240 volt system 500/240 = 2.083 so use a 3 amp fuse

An appliance with a 750 watt motor on 240 volts: 750/240 = 3.12 so use a 5 amp fuse

A 2KW (2000 watt) appliance like a hot air blower on a 240 volt system: 2000/240 = 8.33 amps so use a 10 amp (or more commonly 13 amp) fuse

A 500 watt motor on a 110 volt supply 500/110 = 4.5 so use a 5 amp fuse

A 1KW (1000 Watt) appliance at 110 volts: 1000/110 = 9.09 amps so use a 10 amp (or more commonly 13 amp) fuse

etc etc etc.....

If the sum comes out below 13 amps, you can use a 13 amp plug. If it doesn't you need to hardwire it into a proper cooker supply.

Not knowing the model of the mixer you are talking about, or where you are in the world and the voltage you are running at, I can't tell you. But I can tell you how to figure it out. Simply do this:

You obviously know what your main power supply voltage is, either 240 volt or 110 volt

You can look at the mixer and there will be a data sticker with the wattage of the motor on it

Watts divided by volts = Amps

Therefore, if you have a 500 watt mixer on a 240 volt system 500/240 = 2.083 so use a 3 amp fuse

a 750 watt motor on 240 volts 750/240 = 3.12 so use a 5 amp fuse

a 500 watt motor on a 110 volt supply 500/110 = 4.5 so use a 5 amp fuse

etc etc etc.....

Hope this helps

Hi ,

A 240 Volt model needs at least a 220 volt AC 50 Hz cyclus power supply to run correctly .

A 110 Volt 60 Hz cyclus won't do .

Best regards

No it can NOT be wired for 110 .Actually everything it the unit runs on 110 volts except for the heating element which needs 220 volts..As far as the circuit breaker is concerned you need a minimum of 30 amps

You could get an outside box called a Step down transformer that would deliver 110 volts to the amp. A quick look on Google should come up with prices.

All you need however is a new transformer. If you can find the specifications for the one in the amp it will be much easier to get a new one. All you need to know is the outputs of the secondary windings of your amp's transformer and current ratings. The primary winding will be 240 on the new one and 110 on the old. But you can get one with both!

If you ask Crown they might even convert it for you or put you in touch with someone who will.

u can find voltage converter connectors......try using that....u can ask for travel adapters....hope u find them

5600 watts will not operate off 120 volts.

This is a 220/240 volt hookup.

There are 2 legs of 120 volts each that operate the dryer.

The only part requiring 220v is the heater.

Otherwise 120v routes through the various controls and relays.

Hi,

You need transformer converter 110 to 240VAC.
