110v 50hz


usually a 60 hz motor will just run a bit slower on 50 hz. it can make the motor wear out sooner ..

but If i am correct you do not use 110 v in the uk you use a different voltage set up. What are the nominal voltages where you are?

There is an adapter that handles this problem I dont think it changes the frequency (it may) I will call an electrician I know he works 3 till 11 EDT so he may be there now. let me get back to you

sorry i was not right
the frequency of the cycles does not change
heres how the conversation went
Me( do the adapters we used to use change the Hz.)?
Him(nope)
Me(why did we use them)?
Him(nobody is going to jump on concord to replace a hairdryer)
Me(what if was a 5000L laptop)?
Him(why do you think we dont use them anymore, where've you been for the last 10 years)
I say I dont know!!!!

yea I know 5000E not 5000L


the motor windings will burn up pretty fast in constant use as in a sander
