Can I use a step-down transformer or regulated power supply for the HAKKO station if my line voltage is higher than 120VAC?

General FAQs

Yes, you can run any HAKKO product that requires 120VAC line voltage on the input side provided it comes from a clean and stable source, either from a good quality step-down transformer, or good quality regulated power supply. Be cautious as some low cost power supplies and inverters have demonstrated a propensity to generate unstable voltage supplies and/or line noise. This will interfere with the microprocessor in the HAKKO stations and can result in unstable operation and/or product damage/failure.

The use of 120VAC equipment in locations outside the US, Canada, and Mexico, is not recommended or supported.

For a HAKKO products that is suited for the proper input voltage and regulations for locations outside of the US, Canada, and Mexico, please contact us at 1-800-88-HAKKO (42556) for further information.
