My Atari STE has a 220V (50Hz), but I live in Rio de Janeiro where the standard is 127V 60Hz.
So far I have been using a step up converter to get 220V and that seems to working fine. Does the frequency difference matter?
Since my apartment is equiped with tri-phase power, it is possible to combine two phases (so instead of 1 phase + 1 neutral, one uses 1 phase + 1 different phase), resulting in a tension of 220V at 60Hz. This works perfectly fine for airconditioners, toasters and what not. I'd really like to power my Atari this way as well so I can get rid of the bulky transformer, but I'd like to find out first if this could damage the Atari. My apartment does not have any ground wiring btw
Has anyone over here sucessfully tried this dual phase setup without ruining anything?
