    Most electronic gear can handle a wide input voltage range, but stuff with electric motors doesn't.
    There are only three types of people in this world. Those that can count, and those that can't!

    If you run a 110 Volt motor thru a transformer you will still supply 50 hertz U
    S
    A runs on 60 hertz therefore over a period of time you we get a heat build up in the motor and problems.
    You can alleviate the problem a little by only feeding in 100volts from your transformer. This applies to smaller motors only

    Make sure you are sitting down when you check the pricing, RS has lots of cool components, but their prices are scary !

    You can get the components and make your own, last single 110 outlet I bought was $30 odd $s - ouch

    Forgot about the heat.. continuous use .. V/f is going to be a issue I think. No easy way to drop 10/20% V out of the TX?

    I'd have to check.
    Possibly not very big

    Might just pay for me to sell the autodrive and build one using a 220v motor as it will get a bit of use
