Hi,
If a generator sits unused for a long enough time the generator magnets will loose their power and need to be "flashed" or recharged so that the generator will start to work again...

Here is an interesting discussion about that...

Here is another way to do it..

What are the electrical requirements; 110V and/or 240V??


the voltage required is stamped on the plate on the electric motors
it will read
voltage
phase
current( watts)
duty cycle that plate tells you what the motor needs to run

Where can I find a 240v Bosch 11240 SDS Max Rotary Hammer drill that I can take and use in Ghana


You'll be hard pressed to find one that doesn't run on 110v. You might be able to look on ebay and buy something from the UK like this for example:
http://www.ebay.com/itm/Bosch-GBH4-32DFR-NEW-Multidrill-4Kg-Rotary-Hammer-With-Accessories-240V-/160648807099?pt=UK_Home_Garden_PowerTools_SM&hash=item25676a42bb

Or you could just get a power adapter. Make sure they will work for the amount of amps that the tool will be pulling.

I want to run this compressor "RITIN RT2012" 2HP 12L (1.5kW) compressor. It's a 110V AC drive unit and I have 240V. Can I run it or do I need to convert the Power supply.


You can't just run it on the 240 Volt supply. Check the motor nameplate. If it says it is rated for 110/220 or 115/230, or 120/240 Volts, then it is capable of running at 240V. This will require a wiring change, and you may need a larger size power cord.
The electrical diagram should be on the motor name plate or under the cover to the electrical terminals on the motor.

Is it OK for 240v & 110v


Hello bellm.... This shaver operates on a battery. The charger for the battery can be changed to suit the power source available in whatever country you reside. If your shaver was assembled in the states, it most likely has a 110v charger which will work when you plug it into the 110v outlets found in the states. If you buy this shaver in England, for instanice, it will come with a cord and charger that will plug into the 240v system available in the UK. Joe

Thanks for choosing Fixya!

I was given a US dect 6.0 phone for xmas, but i live in the UK can i get a 8v 300ma AC adapter that will work on 240v instead of 120v?


That depends on if the base unit can handle 240v!! I looked for adapters for this phone and wasn't able to find any at this time but you might have better luck than me on that. It could be risky to plug it into 240v since the U.S. used 110v outlets.

The motor on my jointer was running fine then all of a sudden the RPM dropped drastically and had no power what-so-ever.


I'm going to guess that this unit runs on 240V. I would first suspect that you lost one leg and only have 110V going to this unit.

Check that and update this with the model if not the case.

Thanks,
Dan

I have a GE Profile Harmony Dryer. No Power. 240v, 110v, 110v at the outlet but soon as I plug in the dryer I see 240v, 110v, 0v. Is the problem in the dryer or the power outlet on the wall?


Its not really clear to me where your measuring once you plug in the dryer, but all phases are measuring the correct voltage before, it appears you have an open circuit once you plug the dryer in. Now a dryer is 2 phase, so I would check all of your wiring connections, I would also check your circuit breaker and try swapping it out with a new one(as a last resort). Do some experimenting. In a dryer the heating elements are the only thing that runs on the 240V power. I would swap the hot leads in the dryer and see if any of the electrical components come on. Also try testing the continuity on your dryer plug wires to make sure there isn't a break in them (which can be proven by swapping the leads because now the same lead will read 0V on the other terminal).

A\\VOL Model ALTD1902M - Where to Find Power Cable?


POWER: AC 100V-240V at 50/60 Hertz means that your unit has a switching power supply built in which will operate on ANY AC (alternating current) voltage from 100V up to 240V, on either 50 or 60 hertz frequency.

(110V @ 60 Hertz is an USA wall outlet power standard, whereas 220V @ 50 Hertz is the European wall outlet power standard)

So, you can actually use it with just about any line voltage from a standard home wall power outlet, you just need the correct power cable that fits into your unit on one side and into the wall socket on the other.

The 60W power rating is just telling you how much power the unit consumes for operation which means that if you hook it to a 110V power line (USA), it will draw a current of approximately 0,54 amperes (60 watts divided by 110 volts equals to 0,54545 amperes) and if you hook it to a 230V power line (Europe), it will draw a current of approximately 0,26 amperes (60 watts divided by 230 volts equals to 0,26086 amperes).

The switching power supply in the unit has an internal fuse which is rated somewhat above the 0,54 amperes, could be a 0,63 amperes, but most probably it is rated at about 1 ampere or more.

If the specs you listed are correct, you only need to worry about the correct power cable that will fit into your wall socket on one side and into the combo unit on the other.

Hopefully, if the unit is in good health, you haven't wasted your money after all.

Using dryer in 220V country


There are two systems in use in the states
110v dryers are available that fit a standard 11v 15a socket
110/220v fit the oversize 'dryer' sockets, and they are two 110v phases 90 degreees apart
the motor runs of a single phase 110v.
there is 220v between the 'outside', the active lines of the two phases, at any time, but it is not useable to provide mechanical power as a single service, due to the complicated shape of the wave form when you add out of phase voltages together, but is ok to drive the heaters, they have no mechanical efficiency requirement
A 2 phase 110v heater it means 3kw can be supplied without a 30 amp circuit
but it becomes difficult to use a single phase 220-240v transformer to provide 2x110v 90degree 2 phase current unless you specially buy one in. .
High power applications in 220-240v are generally supplied by 415v 3 phase 60deg supplies,

Any transformer would be onsellable at the end of your posting, to your replacement, who would doubtless be in the same boat as you, with a heap of 'stuff' that needs to run.

UK Aus NZ may be sources of transformers, or dryers to suit.
check with Australian UK NZ suppliers as well as local Indian ones, as those countries are also nominal 240v single phase home suplies and they may have (1) the dryer, or (2)the transformer to suit the 110 2 phase dryer

It sounds like what you are looking for is a Step up/Step down converter. I do not know of any laptops that come with a 240v adapter since most things here in the U.S. run on 110v.

Do a search on Google or such for a 240v 100v converter.
