international power supply modification
Just received my Boxzy thursday. I'm very happy with build quality
I was a bit surprised to learn I need a step down power converter to get the required 110-120V for the included power supply (I'm in Holland with 230V).
As I can't use Boxzy until I do, I wondered what the power supply contains and if I could modify it. I popped it open to find:
Input power goes via the emergency stop and ignition key switches. Then splits to the output sockets and to a self contained power supply providing the 19V for the Boxzy electronics. It's a 120V input, 19V output, 200W led power supply.
As that all seems relatively straight forward I figure it would be easy to replace the power supply with a 230v input one. I could also modify the output sockets to European ones, but that is of second order. That way I can power my 230V Makita milling head with the Boxzy power supply so it will also shutdown when the emergency button is pushed.
A 200W 19V power supply is not as easy to find as I thought. How strict is the 19V Boxzy input power? The electronics board in the Boxzy says 16-24V input, so would there be a penalty to use a 24V supply?
Thanks in advance ;-)
Is this a good question?
