This is NOT A QUESTION But - about 100 years ago some power houses put it out, and it works just fine with most equipment ... but it's not standard practice.

AC (alternating current). Depending on the region, it may be around 110 volt, or around 220 volt. Also depending on the region, it may come at a frequency of 50 Hz, or of 60 Hz.

Household utility AC power is supplied at 60 HZ in the US and most of the rest of North America, and at 50 Hz in most of the rest of the world.

If the power supply is 60 Hz AC, and the Wii says 60 Hz, there is no problem. The built-in transformer provides DC power to the electronics. Do not try to use a Wii designed for a 50 Hz system at a higher voltage.

There is no problem with using 110 volt 50 Hz power hand tools on 120 volt 60 Hz supplies.

Frequency is independent of voltage magnitude. It depends upon type AC or DC.

It might explode, it might blow the fuse, but it will not work properly. But laptop power supplies seem to work from 100 v to 240 v without any switching.

Yes it can. It is within the normal voltage / HZ tolerance.

House power is generally AC current. Depending on the country, it runs at 50 Hz or 50 Hz.

Current = (voltage) / (resistance) = 110/20 = 5.5The current will be 5.5 Amperes RMS, alternating at 50 Hz.Note:If you try this at home, you must use a gigantic "power" resistor.The resistor dissipates E2/R = I2R = 605 watts RMS !

No. However, it may be okay to connect 50 Hz appliance to 60 Hz.

If this is written on the apparatus or nameplate, it is the EQUIPMENT VOLTAGE. If your local AC power supply is 110 volts, 115 volts, or 120 volts, this is your SYSTEM VOLTAGE. When any of the three is provided at the US standard of 60 Hz, the difference for machinery is usually negligible.

It is a motor where the frequency of the AC voltage is 50 cycles per second. In U.S.A. 60 Hz is standard. 50 Hz would be overseas.

It all depends on what you are plugging in, if the voltage match up then you are pretty safe.

Mauritius uses a 240 Volt 50 Hz AC mains supply. The plugs are Type C and Type G

In order to convert 120 volts and 60 HZ to 220 volts and 50 HZ, you will need a voltage converter. The purpose of a voltage converter is to change the amount of electricity in another country.

Common voltage in the U.S. is 120 volts not 110. If the appliance is rated at 50 Hz then it might work in the U.S. But then again it might be damaged.

It is 3 phase, 415 Volts AC 50 Hz system in India. For single phase 220 Volts, AC 50 Hz.

110 vs 230 Vac - The lower voltage is safer, but requires more current and larger wires. (BTW, the transmission loss is not worse because of 110 Vac because everything is distributed at much higher voltages, it only becomes 110 at the transformer near your home). 60 vs. 50 Hz - The higher frequency allows for the use of less iron in transformers and motors, but at the cost of more losses in the distribution system.

Yes. It will work OK but run about 20% faster than the name plate indicates.

The standard AC mains in India is 230V/50 Hz .

If you meant 120 Volt AC, for use in US, CAnada and other countries which use similar 60 Hz electrical power supplies, yes.If you meant 230 Volt AC, for use in Europe and other countries which use similar 50 Hz electrical power supplies, yes.For more information see the answer to the Related Question shown below.

Yes. It will work OK but run about 20% faster than the name plate indicates.

Generally you step down the 220v o 110v through a transformer. However you end up with 110V at 50Hz which works with almost every 110v appliance, but if they use the current hertz for timing then an old alarm clock will not keep time.

Converting the voltage isn't a problem, but converting the frequency could require some additional support electronics. To convert 220 volts to 110 volts, all you need is a transformer with a 220 volt primary and a 110 volt secondary. To convert the frequency, you'd need to come up with either a frequency converter or design and build one.

When the manufacturer specifies a specific voltage to operate their equipment, that is the voltage that has to be utilized. If you transform the 110 volts from the panel to 220 volts then you are adhering to the manufactures specifications and the device will work. The thing to watch with clocks is the frequency of the clock motor. Clocks are frequency sensitive and if you operate a 50 Hz clock on 60 Hz the clock will not keep accurate time.
