I am shipping some equipment to Russia, and the power that is to be supplied is 240 volt 50 HZ. I can deal with that for most of the equipment . What do I do with a circuit that is going to have a couple of computers and a printer on it? I know how to get it from 240 voldt to 120 volts. Will the difference in cycles have an effect on the computers and printers? If so, what do I do to change the cycles on this one circuit?

Thanks,

John

Read the name plate. Most computer power supplies are rated at 50/60 hertz and automatic voltage selection.

The frequency generally only matters for AC motors. You sould be fine with a simple converter.

Thanks guys. I usually deal with standard electrical equipment, like lights, and heat and air conditioners. I didn't know if the change in cycles would effect the processor.

Thanks again.
