Issue Details

I have a HDD-8266 in an environment where I do not have access to regular 50 or 60Hz mains voltage. Can I use the instrument with a 400Hz supply? 


Although not stated in the datasheet, the HDD-8266 only supports frequencies from 47Hz to 63Hz. Therefore it would be incompatible with a 400Hz supply.
