I believe there is a simple answer to this, but I am asking because my customer got me thinking (or second-guessing my own knowledge). In European power generation, when reading across the 2 hot terminals, it's generally 230V. Is this the same as reading across 2 out-of-phase hots, OR is it one leg at 230 and the other a neutral?

Customer thought it was the latter, but I am inclined to believe it should be 2 hots.

Reason for asking, they moved here from Germany and have a coffee maker from Italy that requires 230V. I told them I could convert an outlet and the cord-end plug so they can omit the bulky converter in line with the system.

Any support is appreciated!
