Service Note: 115/230 Input Power Selector

At the back of the Aurora/Northern Lights instrument, near where the input power cable plugs in, there is a 115V/230V selector switch used to match the input power. Please take note that all Aurora/Northern Lights instruments will now ship with this selector set to 230V. A yellow plug (shown below) has been added to where the power cable plugs in as a reminder to check that this selector is in the correct position before plugging the instrument in and powering it on. It is set this way as the safest option due to it not causing damage to the electronics when 115V is plugged into an instrument set to 230V. However, the reverse, 230V plugged into an instrument set to 115V, will cause significant damage to the instrument's electronics.
