Yes, in order to run the 110V Vial Centrifuge unit on 230V supplied electricity, one would have to use a step-down converter (i.e., 1000W step down transformer to convert the 230V to 110V.)

However, the 230V direct power most likely will damage the 110V unit and that will void the warranty.

(For this type of application, we also suggest using at least a 500W step-down converter unit, but further recommend 1000W step-down converter unit.)
