I have a commercial building with 3 Phase (120V / 208V) WYE to the panel.
We need to install a 3 phase NEMA: L21-20R outlet to run some equipment.
I have an electrician coming since I don't want to chase down the commercial breakers and bend conduit, and I got to thinking about adding an EV charger by the drive in door since the conduit bender and hole punch is already gonna be there.
Is there any code reason wiring up a NEMA 14-50 with two lines and a neutral would be non-compliant?
I don't know where my city is at in regards to the hardwiring versus plug in charger dispute, but I'd like the outlet there with all three hot lines and a neutral so we could swap the plug in the future. Worse case we would pipe out of the outlet into a hardwire charger if the code police called us on this, not a big deal.
The charger we have in mind operations 120V AC to 240VAC, so I don't see any electrical reason why the 208V at the NEMA 14-50 would be a problem?
Does the code have any opinion on this?
Am I correct the you can get 208V just using 2 legs of the 3 phase here?
