Hi

Look the same - is the EU1000 just a name variation for the USA market (120V)?

Cheers

I sent one final shout after him to stick to the track, to which he replied “All right,” That was the last ever seen of Gibson - E Giles 23 April 1874

Or 230V even Jeff.

Australia is now 230V.

Is that all you can contribute to the question,I do not know why you bother.
Maybe you can explain when and why it changed.

This from Essential Energy
www.essentialenergy.com.au/asset/cms/pdf/aasp/CEOP8026.pdf

"In 1983 the International Electrotechnical Commission initiated a program to achieve an international standard 50Hz supply voltage of 230/400 volts supply by 2003.

On 23rd February 2000, a new voltage standard, AS60038, was published in Australia to replace the previous 240V standard. This requires, under normal service conditions, that the voltage at the point of supply should not differ from the nominal voltage of 230/400V by more than +10%,-6%."

Brings Oz into line with all other civilised countries (USA is not considered civilised)

Thanks Malcom M
Thus 230v+10%=253v
230v-6%=216.2v
So my original statement of 240v would be acceptable to most people.
But not to some knockers.

Jeff you should have realised by now that this is the "silly ole farts" forum so is a fact of life on here.

Just looked at the EU10i specs - is rated for 240v (not 230v)

Just looked at the Eu 1000 specs - is rated at 120v (not 110v)

Yes Jeff, correct however Oz is officially 230v now.
All power generation is subject to a percentage variation guarantee. We used to live 2 doors away from a big substation whose output to us was 263v. Blew the crap out of so much gear that we had to move. Just cleared the 10% mark so the elect co wouldn't consider any claims.

Jeff, I'm afraid that it is just like Toblerone cutting their pack weight from 400g to 360g, but maintaining the price.
Australian electric supply has gone down from 240v to 230v but the price was not maintained...... it went up!

So, if you've got an alternator that puts out a true 240v then hang on to it..... you'll be ahead of the 230v adopters.

I actually stocked up on 240v before they dropped it, so I am ahead of youse blokes. lol

Actually, only some parts of Australia are 230v. The ACT, Queensland and WA are still 240v. This is why I had to buy a Honda generator instead of a Yamaha. Living in WA we get used to having to wait a while. However, our power prices went up as well.

A new standard has been established for Australia of nominal 230 volts and is being progressively implemented. The effect of the change is almost insignificant.

Why did you have "to buy a Honda generator instead of a Yamaha"?

Allan,
Your dead right , insignificant!
230 or 240 the voltage probably fluctuates all the time and certainly would with a gen set with appliances cutting in and out.
The answer to the question seems to be one model is American and the other for 240 volt countries.
Or 230 or whatever!
Cheers
