Hi, on the Power supply section of the specifications for the Millipore Elix 70 you have 3 different Voltage / frequencies. (117v / 60hz, 230v/ 50Hz and 110v / 50/60Hz)

Does the standard unit take all 3 selections or are there different versions?

There are different versions of the system depending upon the standard voltage & frequency in the country of installation.  The same power supply pcb is used in all system versions, the appropriate voltage/ frequency must be selected to match.  For instance, 117v / 60 Hz corresponds to North America.

Thank you to Robyn From EMD Millipore Corporation for providing this response.

Hi Robyn, thanks for that info.

We are in the UK with 230V / 50Hz supply and have an Elix 70 from the USA which will be a 110V/ 60Hz .

Obviously we can use a step down transformer to get the voltage for the PSU board but were wondering about running the motor on 50Hz.

Some people reckon it will run hot and fail?

As long as the voltage is dropped to the right level, it should be fine.  The motor will run a bit slower, but otherwise it will be OK
