Moog E-Pro - Power Supply EU / US

It seems like I'm about to get my long dreamed Moog Pro.
If I get it, and I think I will, the instrument will come from Europe, so it would most probably include an European power supply (220V).
But I live in the US. Is there a way to get a foolproof 110V power supply for the Pro?
Thank you.

The Etherwave Pro has an integrated SMPS (switched mode power supply) by Meanwell corp. which adapts automatically to the mains voltage and which works from 90V to 264V input voltage. Thus, with this instrument, you have nothing to worry about.

Ah, glad that Thierry chimed in here, he's the expert.  A Meanwell supply, huh.

Thought I'd take the opportunity to point to Mike Buffington's EPro manuals:

The back of the manual states:

Bottom Panel Features:
* POWER: 90-264 Volts AC; 45 Watts

The manual illustration shows what looks like a standard IEC 320 C14 panel mount, so all you probably need is a cord with the US 3 prong on the other end.

Wow, 45 Watts!

Yes, they choose the 45W version in 2005 which is ways too much. That‘s why there are two cement resistors on the back side of the control panel board to present the required minimal load for this SMPS. These heat (naturally) up and they generate, together with the two air slots in the bottom and the top of the back panel a kind of chimney effect which keeps the inside temperature almost constant.

Thank you both!
Thierry, as you know, I was thinking of having it sent to Colmar first for a general overhaul, but Pamelia did an in-depth inspection this week, and it does not seem to be an urgent need for that at this moment. Due to this, and to economic reasons, and to the fact that I'm looking forward to a real visit to Colmar in order to have a Jupiler with you, I've decided to have it sent to my place overseas instead, for the time being. Also, I couldn't wait!
Later this year (I mean in the Spring) I hope I can pay you a visit -I need to go to France anyway for other, personal reasons- and I will bring the patient along.
Thank you again!
