Transformer Question Delta to Wye

Hello Everyone

I am new to DIY so I hope I ask this question correctly. I am working on a new piece of equipment. It is going to be temporarily installed at an old facility. The facility has 240v 3-Phase Delta power available. The machine requires 208v 3 Phase Wye with Neutral (the machine has a couple LV components, 120v). How can I make this connection. If I need a transformer, what style etc. Since this is temporary I need this on the "CHEAP". Thanks for any help.

Sry it's not going to be cheap, and it should ONLY be done by a licensed electrician.

What you are describing is NOT "diy" work. It is work that should be done by a qualified electrician.
Sometimes I feel like if I answer any more questions it is like someone trying to climb over a fence to jump off a bridge and me giving them a boost.

You didn't say what the load in watts was...but if it's using 3 ph....I'm sure it is more than just a simple 15A......

Your going to need a 3ph transformer......if you were lucky, you might find one on Fleabay for maybe $1000....maybe.....with the price of copper....I wouldn't hold out any hope.

Otherwise, your looking at several thousand dollars....
Even if you are on the right track, you will still get run over if you just sit there.
