Single Phase Motor on 2 Phase

1203 Views 1 Reply 2 Participants Last post by  Big John
I am installing a new compressor for a customer. His shop is 2-phase 5 wire (4 hot 1 neutral) but the new compressor is single phase. I mainly do commercial and light industrial work, but I have never come across 2 phase. Even though I sort of picked up on the basics I'm still unfamiliar with it so hopefully someone can help me out. I need to get the 2 phase supply to the single phase compressor. Can I just use one leg or is there a transformer I need?
