    Aprilaire 500,600 for 220 volts

    Hello!
    Are there any models Aprilaire 500 or 600 for 220 volts for the Russian market?
    Or if not, how can it be included in 220?

    I believe those are bypass models and only need 24 volts that can be gotten through the proper transformer. Phase may be more of an issue since as I understand most countries in Europe and east run 50 Hz instead of 60Hz. Not sure what phase Russia runs.

    Thanks to everyone, I also consider the option with a step-down transformer from 220 to 110 volts.
    and look at the need for afrequency converter from 50Hz to 60Hz.
    the humidifier will work for 110 volts of 50 Hz or all the same the board needs 60 Hz.
    All the same, I’ll think I will put the frequency converter.

    The conventional view serves to protect us from the painful job of thinking.
