Depends on what it is. Most appliances don't care. Motors will spin at a slightly different speed, but otherwise you are safe connecting a 50Hz appliance to a 60Hz supply. Perhaps, but in many circuits, it makes no difference. The frequency has no effect on simple resistive circuits such as incandescent lights or heaters. Anything with a transformer in it will run hotter. Motors will run hotter too. In either case, the difference between 50Hz and 60Hz is less than 20% and unless you plan on running the appliance non-stop for a long period of time, it really makes no difference.
The voltage isn't a problem, you can run 220 from your house and use that to run a European appliance, the problem is whether the appliance is dependant on line HZ. European is 50HZ and US is 60HZ. If the appliance specifies 220/50HZ, it will probably give you trouble here. If it says 220V/50 or 60HZ
Running it on 60hz will just make the motor spin faster. This may not be a problem, and if it is, it will probably only be one of personal preference.
No, 120 v is not enough.
It will likely overheat if not rated for 50Hz operation.
It must state on the appliance, that it will work at 240v, 50hz. If it does not clearly state it on the name plate, damage to the appliance will occur.
Depends if the Tv has an internal cirquit to adapt on both frequencies.
You can get a transformer that converts the UK's 230V power to 120V, but you cannot get a transformer that will convert from 50Hz to 60Hz. Often, US equipment can work, except that they will work hotter and less efficiently on the 50Hz power. Consult your clipper and trimmer documentation - you may find that it will work just fine on 50Hz.
Not unless the appliance is rated to be used with the two different power supplies. The US uses 120v, 60 Hz if it plugs into a receptacle, and possibly 240v, 60Hz if it is hard wired. The UK uses 240v, 50Hz whether it plugs in or is hard wired. These two power systems are NOT compatible. You may use a US appliance in the UK, and vice versa, only if the appliance is dual rated, i.e. the appliance says 120v/60Hz AND 240v/50Hz on the nameplate. If the appliance only specifies one power supply, it can only be used on that power supply. If this is the case, you may be able to use a travel adapter to operate the appliance.
We can convert the 60 Hz wave into 50 Hz by using the CYCLOCONVERTER.
You used to need a motor-generator set, but now you can do it electronically.
Yes, 115V 60Hz will work in a 120V 60Hz power supply.
This is hard to say as it is up to the manufacture as to whether it is compatible. on the specification plate it should state the operating frequencies. if i had to say yes or no and the appliance is the latest model i would say yes it is compatible as these days manufactures allow for those tolerances.
50 cycles/sec is 50Hz and 60cycles/sec is 60Hz
T/F works without any change in frequency.... Er. K Godiyal. email: email@example.com firstname.lastname@example.org
No, equipment designed for 240 v does not work properly on 120 v.
You need amps
The motor will run very fast and eventually smoke will come out of it. When the coils burn open, the motor will stop.
use a DC link. power electronics stuff !! so in this DC link you convert the ac 50 hz to dc than convert back this dc to 60 hz with different voltage by controlling the amplitude modulation of the inverter....got it..;)You can now purchase a frequency converter capable of converting both the voltage from 220v(+/-10%) 50Hz to 110v 60Hz and the Hz. This unit was primarily designed for the use in American RV's sold into Europe, there is also now a 2 phase model offering 2 x 3KVA on each phase at 60Hz.See related links below
Yes, you can.
