    Default Spectra 168/265 with almost three phase...

    Hi,

    I have a 168 head with a 265 exciter. I've ran the laser on all 3 legs of 208V three phase at work. At my apartment, I have 2 legs of 3 phase (208V, not 240V). Would it the laser work if I doubled up one of the legs, or do I have a better hope of convincing the management to install a 50A 3 phase circuit?

    No, not on two legs, you need the third leg. Three phase is about balance. Running the transformer on two legs is going to create harmonics in the rectifier stage, which is bad.
