Will my equipment be safe to use with the Australian power supply?
The technical characteristics of a domestic power supply varies from one
country to another. If a person is unaware of this variance, then that person
may unwittingly connect an item of equipment to a power supply that is
unsuitable for his/her device. This can result in the equipment
malfunctioning, and it is then possible for the equipment to cause fatal
injuries to both the equipment operator and others near the equipment.
Australia's public mains power supply is 230 volts, 50 Hz. If your
communications equipment operates at a different voltage or different power
line frequency, you must not connect that item of equipment to the Australian
public mains power network or a telecommunications network.
If you are uncertain about operating a device in Australia, discuss your
options with a suitably qualified electrician, licensed to operate in
