    So, a single phase motor has 2 legs of power I assume?

    You're bringing in a single 240 and a ground, not 120/120?

    We also have 415 volt single phase motors that use 2 phases.

    If you follow me.

    They're something of a rarity though. Kirby tend to use them on their 3 phase condensing units so you don't need to run a neutral to it when installing it.

    A bit of a trap for young players.

    We don't use 120 here except for on control circuits in machines from over your way.
