    Residental areas are only 1 phase unless someone paid to have 3 phase power.

      mn-mi,

      Unless you live in an industrial section, it's highly unlikely that you have 3 ph power installed in your home.

      What makes you think you've got 3 ph power?

      Don't think that unit can be converted to operate on 1 ph current.

          I would like to run into one of these 3 phase bargains. My shop is 3 ph but I would like something I could load on my truck and bring to a customers. None of my customers have 230v single phase in the shops its all 575 3ph. Either that or a deal on a nice SA-200 on a trailer would be sweet.

                OF, I can more than likely host the file and post it here so it's of a legible size - that way it's available to others who may come searching the topic at a later date.

                  OK, see how this looks. It should be legible.
