    I live in Canada where the power system is 120V/15A for small appliances and 240V/20A single phase for the larger ones. With this setup I can use 120V or 240V. Right now, I use 2 x 120V separate circuits 2 X 15A for a total of 3600W.

    You can lower the costs for this setup when using ODrive 24V instead of 56V or if you buy ODrive on Aliexpress.

    You need more work to assemble the encoder to the motor and the motor to the planetary reducer.

    You can use 110v fine on real servomotors is what @SeatTime was trying to point out... And 15A circuit is enough for 6x 750watt motors, they are efficient enough to never peak the current rating above 9A
