The chart is clear they run on a range of voltages, all single phase.  The
electricians should've changed the plug.  My data centers typically feed
racks with 208 single phase.  Most equipment we use (like a Dell monitor as
an example) will plug into the wall at 120v, or 240v, or anything in
between.  Every residence in the usa has 240v single phase pulled to it
with few exceptions.
