The absence of that effort makes me wonder if the owner knows what the outcome of such a test would be and doesn't want to have to report it.

The /780 came standard with a 5-pin Hubbell twist-lock 
connector for 3-phase 208/240 V WYE power.

While it could be rewired for single-phase power, it would 
take fairly massive rewiring of the power control.  The 3 
blowers all ran off line-line power, I think, and the H7100 
power supplies ran off 120V line-neutral from different phases.
