Instant 230 Volt Power
Almost Anywhere
Instant 230V in your own home - NO Wiring!
Plugs into two independent 120V Circuits
Easy to use!
Produces 230V Power Out!
What this is:
This device allows you to run a 230 Volt Vapor Rino off of two household 115V outlets. This Instant 230V Power Supply allows you to create 220/240V by combining two ordinary household (non GFI) outlets on independent circuit. This allows you to run the 230V Vapor Rino in your home without having to install a special outlet or buy a generator.  Instant Power when you need it. Access to 230V volt power is made easy, fast and safe without the heat and weight of an expensive large generator. More information below.

How it works:
This instant 220 Power Supply uses two outlets (120 V) from two different circuits that are out of phase and not controlled by ground fault interrupters (GFI's). The Quick 220 Power Supply has built in circuitry to test for the out of phase circuits. When you are plugged in right, an amber light will illuminate letting you know you are ready to go. A separate, included tester is supplied to check the outlet for a GFI. Most buildings have numerous outlets that meet these two requirements.


What can I use it for?
Works great with out 230 Volt Vapor Rino Steam Cleaners. Other Applications include technical equipment, computer servers, power tools, international appliances, air conditioners, air compressors, and exercise equipment.


More:
These converters can deliver 220 and 240 volts at up to 15 amperes or a total of 3600 watts (depending upon voltage 'in') from your existing 110-120 volt standard outlets. No longer do you need to search for an accessible 230 volt outlet when traveling with your electric vehicle charger or portable professional equipment, or pay an electrician hundreds of dollars to have one professionally installed in your home. Now, you can have 220 volt power when and where you want it and without costly permanent installations.

Our instant 220 voltage converters make it simple and convenient to power a Vapor Rino steam cleaner, air conditioners, computer servers, technical equipment, air compressors, or any other 220-240 volt device without the hassle of having to relocate it near an existing 220 volt line. If you’re using a portable device like professional cleaning equipment, welders, or electric vehicle chargers, you know that not every place you visit has a free 230 volt outlet. Using our voltage converters, you can power all of the mobile equipment you need for your business.

Best of all, there is no bulky box taking up space. These 220 voltage converters are small, portable, and light weight. Each adapter unit measures 6.5in x 5in x 3in and weighs
less than 4 pounds so it can be tucked out of the way near the device you are powering or packed up and taken to the job site with your equipment or on the road with you as part of a mobile charging setup for your electric vehicle.


What you Need to Know Before you Buy...
This system works great with a 230V Vapor Rino. That said, if you are going to use this 230V converter to power one of our Vapor Rino
Steam Cleaning systems there are few things you should be aware of.

1) Extension Cords: When using extension cords use the RIGHT SIZE. Use heavy duty, 12-3 AWG extension cords (or
heavier) with 3 prongs. This would be for the cords used to plug into the two 120volt outlets to provide power to the instant 230V
converter. For the 230V output side, if an extension cord is used it should also be 12-3 or heavier.

2) Maximum Power - Don't Share: The 230V Rino's run close to maximum wattage with a Vapor Rino. When plugging in your converter be sure ALL OTHER ITEMS on those same circuits are turned off. You will need all the available power from both 15 amp, 115V outlets to run this machine.  Having other appliances turned on will take power away from this system and may cause you to trip a breaker. Turn off or unplug all items in that part of the home that on the same circuit before using this system.

3) Non GFI Outlets Only: You cannot plug this converter into a GFI outlet. Most of the time you can identify these outlets by the
'reset' and 'test' buttons on the outlet itself.
You will most often find these GFI outlets in a kitchen or bathroom. The converter
will not work off of a GFI outlet. Just plug it into standard 15 or 20 amp outlets.
You can use the INCLUDED tester to see if an
outlet is GFI
or not.

4) Cycle Time - Rest: When running full power it is recommended to "rest" the converter from time to time. See specifications
for more information.  Full power at 80% on, 20% off (time), 3 hr. max. It may be a good idea to turn off your machine for 10
minutes after every 60 to 90 minutes or so to let the converter rest. Also, keep your converter out of direct sun light  and never
cover or enclose the converter. This will avoid overheating.

5) Low Voltage Location: If your location has low voltage coming into the home it is possible that this system may be under
powered for use with a Vapor Rino.
Voltages below 105V and possibly 110V may have issues. This is not definite, but is possible.  You can buy a cheap voltage tester to see what your outlets are putting out. Anything over 115 Volts is great.
If you have any questions, feel free to give us a call.


Editors Notes: I love this instant 230V converter! It allows me to use my 230V Rino at home anytime I want. After about a year of using
it both at home and in the warehouse we have found this to be a powerful tool and a must have. If mine ever does wear out, I will
positively buy another one! It is worth every penny. My Rino heats up fast and keeps on chugging at full steam with this converter. This system really has made my life easier in this area.

Diversity: This unit also has many uses. About 3 years ago I purchased a welder. I did not have a 230V outlet so I settled for a 120V
version. It works okay, but its under powered. If I had known about this converter I would have purchased the more powerful machine. If
you need instant access to 220/230/240 volts this could be the answer you are looking for. This system is great for running a variety of
220V equipment.  You can of course buy a generator or installing an outlet at your location but this system is a great way to get the
results you want, fast. Even if you do get a generator or install an outlet, this unit gives you the freedom to take your Rino almost anywhere. The bottom line, I give this amazing little converter top rating. All the thumbs up and gold stars I can find, go to
this great little device.

How does the 220 Volt Power Supply work?
How does the Quick 220 Power Supply work?

The 220 Power Supply technically uses the fact that 220 / 240 volts AC is supplied to most facilities. The 220 / 240 volts is divided into 110/120 volt circuits for distribution within the building. Using standard 110 / 120 volt outlets and the Quick 220, the user can quickly identify and connect to the separated 110 / 120 volt halves of the original 220 / 240, restoring the 220/240 volt AC option without adding new electrical circuits or wiring to the building.
How do I use this 220V Power Supply?
SEE :HOW TO SETUP TAB FOR DETAILS. Overview: First, connect one of the 220 Power Supply cords to a standard 110 / 120 volt outlet.

Next, connect the second power cord from the Quick 220 Power Supply to an independent 110 / 120 volt outlet, using an extension cord if necessary. The "220-240 VOLTS" lamp will illuminate when you have the right outlet; if it doesn't illuminate, try a different outlet.

220 / 240 volts is now available at the "220-240 VOLTS" outlet on the Quick 220 Power Supply. Plug in your 220 / 240 volt equipment and use it.
Waht do you mean by "independent 110/120 volt outlets?
Technically, the AC voltage of the two outlets are 180 degrees out of phase. Practically, you find the independent outlet by moving the second power cord to different outlets until the amber light on the front panel goes on. About half the outlets in a building will be "independent" of the other half.
What size extension cords should I use?
Use heavy duty, 12-3 AWG extension cords (or heavier) with 3 prong plugs for equipment loads over 13 amperes. These are available at most hardware and home centers.
How much power can I draw from this converter?
This 220 Power Supply will furnish 15 amperes. If your equipment is rated in watts, 15 amperes at 230 volts is the same as 3450 watts.
For the 15 ampere (3450 watt) systems, momentary loads of 75 amperes or 16,500 watts can be supported. Momentary loads are often encountered when starting motors or when powering up electronic equipment.
One cannot draw more current (amperes) from the wall outlet than its circuit breaker or fuse rating. TURN OFF All other appliances, and electrical devices that are running on the same two circuits you are plugging into.
This includes the current required by your 220/240 volt load plus any 110/120 volt item which may share the same circuit: lamps, stereos, hair dryers, etc. It may be necessary to disconnect the lamps, stereos, hair dryers, etc., if you trip a circuit breaker you will need to reset it and check to make sure all other items are off on that set of lines.
Safety?
To protect people and equipment, the Quick 220 Power Supply's automatic safety interlock blocks all power to the 220/240 volt outlet until electrical connections are complete and correct. Should one of the cords become disconnected or loose power, all powered connections to the 220/240 volt outlet are immediately and simultaneously disconnected, including the exposed power cord.

Internal test circuits are employed to assure wiring, polarity, and output voltage are correct. Safety circuits can be checked by listening to the Quick 220 Power Supply at the time it is connected to 110/120 volt power; it will click if safety circuits are operating.

The Quick 220 power Supply conforms to the safety requirements of UL Standard 1012. It has been independently tested to this UL Standard by Intertek and has earned the right to bear the Intertek Listed Mark. Intertek is a Nationally Recognized Testing Laboratory (NRTL), recognized by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) for this testing.
How big is it?
About 6.5 inches wide by 5 inches deep by 3 inches high. It weighs less than 4 pounds.
What is meant by 110/115/120 volts and 220/230/240 volts?
In North America, 110 volts, 115 volts and 120 volts are used interchangeably to describe the most common voltage range. This is the voltage level available through most outlets in the US, Canada, and Mexico. Similarly, 220 volts, 230 volts and 240 volts refer to one voltage range. The sources of these seemingly different numbers is as follows:
The 110 volt and 220 volt designations are older and are familiar terminology, but are not now commonly used in either product design or by electric utilities.
The 115 volt and 230 volt terminology comes from equipment design standards. Equipment is typically designed to operate at 115 or 230 volts plus or minus 10%.
Electric utilities typically deliver electricity at 120 volts or 240 volts plus or minus 5% at the transformer.
When one subtracts the several volts lost between the electric utility's transformer and your equipment, you get a good match between the voltage the electric utility delivers and the voltage your equipment was designed to use.
Does equipment designed for 50 Hz. operate on 60 Hz?
In North America, electricity is supplied at 60 Hertz (Hz.) In most of Europe, Asia, Africa, Australia and South America, 50 Hz. is the standard. For most equipment, this difference is not a problem. In some cases, motors will run 20% faster on 60 Hz versus 50 Hz. (This is a problem with electric clocks!) Radios and televisions are a special problem: broadcast frequencies are country and region specific. If you have questions, please call us.
How does 3 phase power affect this system?
Should the 110/120 volts come from a 3 phase electrical system, sometimes found in commercial or industrial settings, the output will be 208 volts.
Do I need to use 3 prong grounded wall outlets? Yes!
Yes, 3 pronged grounded wall outlets are necessary for safe operation. Do not use adapters and do not remove grounding pin from plug.
Operation Guide Overview

Important: Read the complete instruction and safety
information supplied with this instant 220 power supply before use.
Step 1

Check your 110/120 volt outlet with the tester supplied to make sure the outlet is wired correctly and does not have a ground fault interrupter (GFI) in the circuit.






Step 2

Plug one of the instant 220 power supply's cords into a 110/120 volt outlet'





Step 3

Plug the other power cord into a different outlet. Use an extension cord of appropriate length, as necessary. The two outlets will be farther from each other than shown in the picture. This is just an example picture. You want two outlets that are on different circuits. Step 4 (amber light) will confirm when you get it right.



Step 4
The amber lamp on the front cover will light when connection is made to an outlet on an independent circuit. If the lamp doesn't light, try different outlets until it does. Technically, an independent circuit is one that is 180 degrees out of phase with the first.
In practice, Quick 220 systems automatically test for this. No special knowledge or action is required by the user.




Step 5
Plug equipment into the 220/240 volt outlet.
Begin use.
