Re: 50 hz nst

No, this is not a problem. Your 50Hz transformer will
digest 60Hz current without any problem (assuming it
is a real iron-core transformer and not a solid state
supply). However, you will need a 240v outlet for it,
or else a 120 to 240 step-up transformer if you want
to run from a 120v outlet. I lived in the UK for 4
years, and I ran plenty of 60Hz US stuff on 50Hz, and
I've run plenty of UK/Euro 50Hz stuff on 60Hz, and I'm
confident it won't be a problem.
