Re: three phase transformer, single phase load
This is a problem I figured out some time ago. We live in a world that is so regulated that no one can make a decision without permission from some higher authority. The tech's at CH are not going to tell the customer what he wants to hear because that't not the purpose for which the transformer was designed and tested. If he makes an independent decision then his butt's on the line. If he says it will work, then he would never put it in writing. If you use a piece of equipment in a manner other that what it was designed and tested for, then the responsibility falls on you. Unless the instuctions on the transformer specifically say for single or three phase application don't use it. If it weren't for the liability issue the electrician would all-ready have hooked it up. In this case I agree with Bob, small three phase panels are not expensive. Good call Bob.
