Client just moved and wants me to re-wire the dryer outlet in his new house with a standard 120V three-prong duplex receptacle AT 240V.
He says he had that setup at his previous residence for his European style washer and dryer, which he says both run on 240V but have 120V style 3-prong plugs.
I’m suggesting that we install 20A 240V horizontal blade receptacles and install suitable plugs on the machines so no one can mistakenly plug in the vacuum cleaner to a 240V outlet.
I’ve never heard of 240V devices with the same plug configuration as 120V receptacles, but when I googled 240V line cord I found this device with what looks like a 120V 3-prong plug:
Is this some strange exception to the rules?
