Buy a transformer that is compatible with local electrical connectors and supports the wattage it draws.

People take electrical products between the 2 main voltages all the time.

I purchased the oven in New York. Can I use the same in India?


India is 230v 50hz. Microwave will not work there. Computers and things with built in adapters can adjust. Microwaves and things with motors usually can't.

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 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.

Will a LG LED TV model 42LV3500 bought in Canada work in India


I'm sorry to inform you that the TV is not directly compatible with the power and color system available in India. The TV is only designed to work with 120V/60 Hz and NTSC color System. The power specification in India is 230V/50Hz. The color system is PAL.

However, you can use a Voltage converter and PAL to NTSC converter to make use of the TV in India.

Thanks for understanding. Please let me know if you require any clarifications.

I purchase a microwave which is 240v 50z but in my country we usually use 230v 60hz, can i use AVR to solve my problem?


Hi. An AVR (auto voltage regulator) will not change the freqs from 50 Hz to 60 Hz. An AVR only changes voltage. The frequency in is the same frequency out.

Having said that.... I don't think your going to damage your unit as long as you don't run it for long periods time. I live in the tropics and use 4 different AVRs myself. I have had both 50z and 60 hz electronics and appliances running fine on 60 Hz for the last 7 years. Your call! Hopefully this was useful information.

How can i use Sony 5.1 Receiver STR-DG520 in India (120V to 230V)


Sorry, but according to Sony this set operates only on 120 volts at 60 hertz. As we have no real need for up converters here in the USA, I cannot recommend one for your application. The best course would be for you to visit one of your local electronics stores and provide them with the specific current requirements. I'm certain that an appropriate converter is available in your area.

Different HZs problem (from 60Hz to 50Hz)


Hi,

Yes there are frequency converters available but most are relatively over rated (industrial) for your requirement such as MDS Power or VisiComm Industries. What you need is a Low Power Solid State Frequency Converters lower than a
Electrocon Frequency Converters. However, I expect this devices to be rather expensive.

A few other options you may want to consider:
1. Contact the store where you bought if from; swap with an International version (Model SL-1210 Mark II; same price as SL-1200 Mark II); dual voltage switchable on rear of unit: 120 volts/60 Hz (U.S.) or 220 volts/50 Hz (Europe). You hopefully just spend for the cost of shipping + a restocking fee;
2. Contact 3rd party Technics TT specialist like TopDJGear, Quality Electronics, Planet DJ or DJHardware
and inquire if they would supply you the part(s) that you need to convert the 1200 to a 1210; or
3. Offer a swap on eBay.

Hope this be of some idea/help. Pls post back how things turned out or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

JCR-160 clock radio Clock running slow


The clock works off the frequency (hertz). In US the electrical wave frequency is 60HZ/sec and in India and many other countries 50HZ/sec. Hence, the clock slows down about 6 seconds or so every minute.
