230 Volt Foredom Flexible Shaft Machines:
All of our flex shaft machines, with the exception of Series TX and Series TXH motors, come in 115 volt and 230 volt hang-up and bench-style models.
The SR-FCT-2CE flex shaft and foot operated speed control is our model that meets all CE electrical and safety requirements.
To learn about our machines, please view/download our Equipment Catalog. There's also the “Flexible Shaft Power Tool Selection Guide”. This .pdf formatted document concisely lists all motor specifications, performance ratings and replacement parts on a single page. It is an excellent reference that is worth your viewing time.
Plug Types: Standard 3-prong US style plugs come supplied on 115 volt and 230 volt speed control power cords (it is the speed control and not the motor that gets plugged into an electrical outlet). US plugs can be replaced with ones suited for use in the United Kingdom, Continental Europe, and Australia. Plug options are offered in product selection drop down menus and Foredom Export can also assist with selection and installation.
Foredom is known for its broad selection of interchangeable handpieces. If you already own a European flex shaft machine, one of our Slip Joint handpieces may be of interest.
If you prefer to use your own slip joint handpieces with a Foredom machine, then you'll want to replace the standard shaft and sheath that comes installed on all of our units (115 and 230V) with a European style flexible shaft, sheath, and motor connector. This conversion assembly is Order No. S-10811.
