We have an application where 120v 3 wire equipment must operate in older buildings where single phase 120/240v 3 wire system is the only available power. The manufacturers of the equipment state that the three prong plug must be utilized for proper operation. The only solution I have come up with is to use a portable transformer 240v - 120/240v 4 wire to establish a true ground system. Any comments or ideas?
