  It may not NEED 3 phase. It probably has several PSUs and they may be wired to different phases or you may be able to connect them all together on one phase (but the current requirement will go up). That's the way my friend's BIG SGI was connected. We rewired it for single phase and it works just fine except that it now rated at 90 Amps input or nearly as much as a house!
