So, it sounds like what the rep is saying is that the new TT-PSU runs at 50Hz? If so, this would be the first that I've seen/heard this spec.
If this is true, then the pulley diameter on the US version of RP6s would need to be different than every other US version to compensate for the difference in motor frequency.
Watercourse, you're right the pulley would have to be the same as the UK pulley. Also asynchronous motors have no Hz rating. They just rotate at a speed to dictated by the frequency of the AC current fed in. Speed=120*frequency/number of pole pairs. There has to be 24 pole pairs in the standard 24v Rega motor as it spins at 250rpm in the UK.
I just checked the box my TTPSU mk2 came in. It is clearly marked UK
with EU and UL boxes to be ticked.
But then the actual TTPSU says AUS/NZ/EU/UK/US on the back with no indication of being one or the other.
The TTPSU also comes with a 24v 50Hz AC adaptor. Could one of these convert from 60 Hz in to 50Hz out?
