I have a off topic question that is not clear to me.

Where I work we have 1 phase to neutral 230VAC 50Hz
so all our PC power supplys (those that I can buy) are rated to that voltage and frequency.

Currently I am making a machine that will be exported to a country where the machine will be powered though 3 phases 230V, 60Hz. This is between 2 phases I will get 230V that is the same voltage that I have here, but between a phase and neutral.

My question is to know if I can expect that my PC power supply will work when connect to 2 phases of the destiny country. It is not clear if it can be a problem due to the 2 phases and the frequency. I think so, but I am not sure, and I would like to prevent a problem.

Thank you

I have been to several sites where the power grid is 230 volts 3 phases. all 230-volt single-phase loads are connected between 2 phases without problems.
for the power supply is not a problem 60 hz but if you want to feel comfortable and have the written 50/60 hz should find it

It should work, but i did not try it (still live in a 3x380V country), but i know for sure most power supplies have a 110V setting on the back, so you could also use that connected to one phase and neutral ( i assume this is US you are sending the equipment) and for sure all 50Hz PS will work on 60Hz without complaints.

Nowadays they do not have the 110/220 selector, and the machine will only receive 3 phases (not neutral).
The machine will not be sent to USA.
