110v plug

Post#1 » Wed Dec 05, 2018 4:24 pm

So after after nagging my brother for 6 months we finally purchased the B9creator for his goldshop and i got it delivered yesterday. But to my horror it came with a 110v plug(i think it's from the power supply) and i live in the Netherlands and 220v is used here. I kinda forgot to mention it. Does anybody know what to do? Is it safe to use a voltage converter or anything?

Any help is very very much appreciated.

You need to message B9 or call the closest distributor in Europe.

Thanks for the help!

So i have decided to just get a voltage converter and hope for the best. But now i need to know how many watt the projector is using. Do you perhaps know by any chance? I can't find it anywhere on the website.

Both the projector and the power supply should work at 220-240 vAC.
The power supply shipped with several swapable plugs so it can be used in almost any country. The projector just needs a standard computer like cord for your country, that should plug into the projector.

Yes the power cord to the actual printer has swappable plugs and is working as intended. However the power cord to the projector is fitted with a 110v US plug. I was being told using a 230v power cord/plug could possibly damage the projector. I had already searched for a PC power cord and found it but was scared to put 230 v power on the projector.

But from what i understand you are saying it is completely safe to do so?

B9 is MIke's company. I think you should listen to his advice.
