    I'm not sure about your description, but I believe there should be a power supply for the bulb and another supply for the heater. The heater is a small device used to keep the bulb at a consistent temperature for consistent exposure. My power cable for the heater has a tag on it identifying it.
    For exposure consistency, I plug the heater into one electrical circuit and the bulb supply into a circuit that has nothing else plugged in (nothing else anywhere in the house).

    I don't have a cold head, but have seen one work at a friend's house. You connect the cold head to the power supply (via the dedicated cable), and then you connect the power supply to your electrical outlet. It's that simple. However, it seems that your power supply is for 110V, and, as far as I know, in Italy you use 220V. Therefore, you may have to use a transformer.

    Hope this helps.

    THANKS A LOT!!!
    ON BULB , HEAD, THERE IS A CABLE LIKE A 110V CABLE WITHOUT TARGET THAT MEAN HEATER! IS IT A HEATER???
    IT 'S POSSIBLE THAT THE HEATER IS IN THE COLD HEAD???? BECAUSE THE 110V CABLE GOING TO A 3 PIN CHIPA
    I 'VE TO KNOW BECAUSE THERE IS A STRANGE CONNECTION FROM 110V CABLE , 3 PIN CHIP AND THE CABLE WHO CONNECT POWER TO HEAD(BULB) AND THE MINICABLE IS DISCONNECT NOT ALL PIN
    SO I CAN RESUME ONLY + AND - THAT GOING ON BULB FROM POWERSUPPLY
    AND OTHER CONNECTION TO A POSSIBLE HEATER I WILL NOT CONNECT AND DONT USE

    Hey, D, if you can wait until tonight when I get home, I'll lay the thing out for ya. Mine is in a Omega, but same difference. I'll check back at 7 or 8 p.m. PST, and I have no clue what that is in Italy.
