Datacenter 110/120v Alternating Current Outlet Converted To 220v Alternating Current
Posted on 2014-11-23
We are building a small datacenter and I want to know if the following is possible.
We have single phase service panels, lets take for example a 200 amp service panel, phase A and B in our panel.
QUESTION: Can we run 220v through regular (red hospital style) 110v outlets? Our gear all runs at 220v and it is much more efficient and produces less heat this way, but it is for american standard outlets, and we want to keep it american standard 110v style outlets.
I have looked up the specifics of 110v AC outlets, and they are rated at 20 amps. If we run 220v will it be rated at 10 amps? So we could run 2200 watts off a single rated outlet max?
