Yeah I did see in few place in both resdentail and light/hevey commercal useage but the high leg delta is dropping out of the new customer list for new service but exsting customer still can use that format.

actually, not non-existent. Very uncommon and very ancient and not typically seen but definately not non-existant.
speaking of the old two phase yeah they are around but not really wide spread very few old building still have it and useally converted to three phase or use scott tee transfomer connection that is the only way you can get two phase but it pretty much out of the DIY scope to expain unless they can goggle it.

Merci,Marc

correct. no new services that I am aware of but in my area, there are a lot of old ones. I did not mean to infer this would be found in a residential setting. spark plug was just explaining 3 phase and I tossed this is due to his statement about 3 phases systems being 120/208.

basically same thing here.
