Question 220v laser printer

Hi all, I have a 220v laser printer I need to install in a commercial building. All of the other items are normal voltage ( I guess 110v or 120v). What steps do I need to install this printer i.e. rewiring, converter, etc?

Thanks

You'll have to get with maintenance and have them get their electrician to run the proper sized circuit to the location where the printer will be.

Talking Thanks

As always, thanks for the assistance. Somehow I knew it would cost me more money, lol.

Question Another Question

I just look at the circuit box and on each circuit it has 120v/240v. Does this mean that it's already done or is this the norm and I did need to have lines ran.

Thanks

Call an electrician. You are talking about a commercial building. Commercial work is NOT do it yourself.

I agree with racraft!
It would be nuts to even attempt a commercial job knowing not what you need to do.
You are dealing with other peoples lives when it comes to commercial.

Don't you have to be a licensed electrician to work on commercial?

If so, why are these building tenants hiring someone off street? Sounds kind of risky.

No one was hired. Just a businessman trying to save a buck. I understand fully now so I got everything covered. Electrician, it is. Thanks.

I understand. Good choice of now hiring an electrician.

When it comes to peoples lives, don't take the chance.
