Can the Class 2510 Type F starters be used on 50 hertz applications?

All testing and evaluation of these devices are performed at 60HZ. The device has no control coil so there is no problem in this area. In consideration of the load the power contacts would see, they are horsepower rated and follow the tables in UL 508 for determination of current at specific horsepower and voltage levels. As long as the horsepower rating and/or maximum continuous current rating (16 amps) is not exceeded, the devices should function acceptably.
