We have 380V here in South China
I've built a few Kinetix driven MPL servo drives machines, 480V 60HZ.
I commission the machines in the U.S., and then just change the Control transformer from 480/120 to 380/120, and I have had no problem with the different frequency.
I use the PHxx Automation Direct transformers, and they are really good and really cheap.
I don't do any of the Duties or tax ramifications, that's someone elses problem.
One thing to note, If your working machine is old and tired looking, don't even bother.
They won't take our old stuff. If it's not New or almost new, your not getting it over here, so I'm told.
Good Luck
Enjoy the Dim sum
