230/220 is pretty much the same, older breakers used to be 230, newer ones are 220, motors wired for 230/220 are identical and will work on either – this is the equivalent to the US 110/120 circuits…

I’m not sure if I understand you correctly, you want to run the DC and another piece of equipment at the same time off the same 220/230 breaker ? if so, it’s probably not doable, I doubt that 30 amps is enough. You should really have a seperate 220/230 circuit for the DC. Even a dedicated 110/115 circuit would work.

Check out pages 19 & 20 in the Manual (

Looks pretty straight forward. I’m sure it will be obvious once you take the cover off your control unit / motor.

Your tool will know no difference between 220 & 230 V. I bet if you check your voltage with a volt meter it will be neither 220 or 230 but somewhere in the vicinity.
