Consumer Alert PS300 actual voltage

I was re-reading the follow-up review of the PS300 power plant with Mulit-wave. There was mention of an item I remember reading, but I never followed it up. The issue is in the voltage output. On the earlier models (I'm only assumong this was corrected) the voltage reads out as 117, but when actually measured by the reviewer with a volt meter it turned out the voltage was actually 122. I went and measured mine and yup, 122! I'm not sure of the effect of too much or too little voltage, maybe someone could write in, but I think any one who owns these multi-wave units would be smart to buy a digitial volt meter at there local Rat-Shack and make sure your voltage is where you think it is.

The 5v difference is minimal, and well within the margin your equipment would find acceptable. You should also be careful with the faith you put in your volt meter readings; almost all inexpensive meters will do fine when meassuring a sine wave that is 50-60hz, but when meassuring waves that are modified sines, or waves that have frequencies that are way higher, like the 400hZ the multiwave can put out, they will give unreliable readings.

As said, don't be concerned with 122V, it will work fine and not cause damage.
The voltage coming out of the wall outlets in my house typically measures about 122 or 123 volts. The lowest that i've seen it go in quite a while was about 117 volts. As Neils stated, this is not a big deal unless your running gear that is underdesigned or running on the ragged edge of "tweakery". Sean
That "117" volt ideal is the RMS value for a 60-Hz sinewave only. Are you measuring your 300 output at 60 Hz, no multiwave, no higher frequency settings? Otherwise the reading will be higher.
