Voltage selector
The switching power supply that came
with the system has a voltage selector
switch below the power socket. Use this
switch to select the appropriate voltage
according to the voltage supply in your
area.
If the voltage supply in your area is
100-127 V, set the switch to 115 V.
If the voltage supply in your area is
200-240 V, set the switch to 230 V.
