Changing power on an Aphex 661???

Just received an aphex 661 off ebay from the US.
I already have one purchased in Australia, and I know they can run at 220v, but am not sure if something will need to be switched or if I can just plug it in and it will work.
I'm not just going to plug it in and try though as I've had gear blow up that way before....
Any advice appreciated

I don't know this particular piece of gear.. but I'll ask Jim Williams, he also mods them, so he should know the inside out's..

Bests,

there on bac in euro psu connector is a small pcb card that have to be removed and installed in different direction to use other voltage options... its easy but need to be done and first time it looks like wierd way to select voltages..

im on vacation so cant make picture of that card.... just check unpluged psu connector on back .. you will get it!!!!!!!!!

Hey thanks Roginator,
I contacted Aphex direct a couple weeks ago and they kindly gave the same info!
Fortunately they also told me I had to change the fuse.
It is a very strange way to change voltage!!
All done though and operational.

Changing Power on Aphex 661

Hi

would you guys mind giving some more detailed instructions on the process? I am struggling with the same problem, bought one of the compressors on ebay in the us, trying to use it in Switzerland. This card thing isn´t exactly self-explanatory...

thanks in advance...

Hi Folks,

I don't think Aphex support will answer my question since product not even in the list for support.
I need use my unit in Europe with 220v can anyone share detail what kind of fuse I need use when
I switch psu to 220v behind.

Here's the process.
Note - you don't need to remove upper cover to do this
Pulling out pcb card require some force
Exact working position of the card for 220V is shown
