Voltage, Frequency, & Connections by Country

What’s the frequency? and which voltage, where?

When exporting equipment, traveling, or moving to another part of the world, it’s important to know both the line voltage and the line frequency in the destination country.

Connecting a piece of electrical equipment to a power source operating at a different voltage or frequency than that for which it was designed poses a risk of damage to the equipment and more importantly may also create an electrical shock and fire hazard.
