## Can you convert 480V to 240V?

**Yes**, that would work. However, the transformer need not be 3-phase. A single phase 480vac to 240vac transformer will work too.

## Can you get 208V from 480V?

In order to accommodate various input voltages, some transformers may be equipped with multiple taps on the primary. … For Example: Given a 480V to 208V Delta > Wye, with an input voltage of 460V and a tap set for 480V would yield: (460/**480**) X 208 = 199.33V. In order to yield 208V this tap setting would be insufficient.

## Can you get 220V from 480V?

Can you get 220V from 480V 3 phase? **It is NOT possible**. The simple reason is that three phase power has at least 3 conductors (wires). … If the lamp is connected to two of the wires of a three phase system, it is only using single phase power.

## Can you get 240V from 120 208V?

The short answer is that in general, it’s not — most 240V appliances also work fine at 208V by design, to handle this exact situation. If you actually need to get a true 240V from a 208V supply, you **can use a step-up transformer**, but most likely you’ll have no need to.

## What is the difference between 240V and 480V?

The higher voltage (typically 240V) will be the ‘Line to Line Voltage’. … The higher voltage (typically 480V or 600V) will be the ‘Line to Line Voltage’. It will be **1.73x the** ‘Line to Neutral Voltage’ and is the voltage between any two line of the three lines.

## How do I get 240V?

The way you get a 240-volt circuit is simple. A “double-pole” circuit breaker is clipped into both 120 buses at the same time, so the voltage to the circuit is doubled. That’s why 240-volt circuits need **two hot wires** and a neutral to carry the electricity to the appliance, plus a ground wire.

## Is 208 the same as 240?

208 is from a 3 phase system and **240 can be from** a single phase or a 3 phase system.
