The dual voltage version has a different PCB, voltage switch and transformer. I'm not sure why you would want to replace the regulator though? Once the transformer is changed the rectifier will be fed with 30VAC exactly the same way as with the original transformer. From the rectifier onwards the decks should be identical.
Hi JaS: I want them to work only on 240V. Not interested in them being dual 110V/240V. So the only part I need in that case is SLT66DTE13E (which is the dual voltage transformer)?? How does it switch between the two voltages? I don't know much about electronics and wiring and thus I really can't tell you why the rectifier or power supply/switch PCB needs to be changed. These were just suggestions from friends. I need a confirmation from an expert, like yourself, to what I need to change and for reference maybe even why I would need to change that particular part-the transformer is pretty much obvious. The only concern I have at the moment is with the 240V transformer, would all the other parts be compatible (by current, voltage, amperage, etc, etc), which were otherwise running off a 110V transformer, with this 240V transformer I need to change.
110V-240V step down/up transformers/converters are hard to come by in my neck of the woods. I've seen some really nice 500W-1000W ones on amazon.co.uk but they are so bulky, almost 5kg. I would be paying a fortune to have one shipped here, if at all they ship to Kenya.
Thanks a lot for your input. I appreciate it.
