What is split-phase vs single phase?

Is 240V split phase?

240V or split phase: For small residential buildings, the usual method is to rig up a 240V stepdown transformer (instead of 120V) in which the secondary winding is split into two 120V windings (hence the name "split phase"). … There are also three secondary windings on such a transformer.

Can you run 208V on 220V?

220-230-240 (depends on utility) is the standard nominal 1-phase voltage across both legs of the line (120 nominal being the voltage from either leg to neutral). Most devices designed for 220 will run on 208 and in shops all over the place this is commonly done.
