  • Diversion 180 MVP - 240v vs 115V for Australian Plugs

    Hi,

    I have a Diversion 180, I just wanted to know, in Australia our power points are 240v. I have a 15A outlet, can i use the Multi voltage plug which is for 115v and with the NEMA 5-15P connector or do I have to use the 240v Multi voltage plug with the NEMA 6-50P connector??

    I have a lead which goes from the 15A plug types used in Australia to a NEMA 5-15R connector. Just wanting to know if Im able to use this with the Miller 115V/15A MVP or if I have to make up a new lead which makes use of a NEMA 6-50R connector on the other end to mate with the Miller 240v MVP...

    Do the Multi Voltage Plugs have any electrics inside of them or are they just so you can swap between 115v and 240v outlets???

    Thanks

    The 120v wiring is different on the MVP system- it works differently than a machine like the dynasty that is also multi voltage.

    You'll need to make an adapter that uses the MVP 6-50p to the Aussie 230 wall receptacle.

        I think connection cable has 4 wires. Ground, common neutral (and other 240v hot leg), 120v hot and 240v hot. MVP plug just makes right connection.
