you need a 110 to 220 auto-transformer
this will change the voltage from 110 to 220, as well as provide a certain degree of line conditioning.
installation of MOV surge supressors in the 220 line is highly recommenmded.

cheers!

poowering up a 1000 watt printer with a UPS is not only investment intensive, but prone to down the line complications also.

@techp:
can you give details of the printer?

The step-up transformer is the best idea but don't get too small of a transformer.
220v x 5 amps => 1100w
110v x 10 amps => 1100w
- But the transformer will use some power too.
I would get at least a 110v x 14 amp transformer.

Also, if the building wiring [wall socket] is only 15 amps then the printer can be the only thing on the circuit.

If you can get a free UPS that does what you want (i.e. 1000W, 110V in, 220V out) by all means take it. If you have to pay for it, take the transformer.
