Hi, I'm Mike G and will be glad to assist you. Are you certain the the voltage isn't 208V and not 280V?
It would help to see the name plare. Can you upload a picture? The basic answer to your question is yes you can use it for single phase. 3 legs connected is 3 phase. 2 legs connected is single phase. If the voltage needs to be reduced a transformer would be needed.
