Does there exist such a thing as an edison plug (male end) adaptor for use on a commercial outlet (female end)? By "commercial" I mean the kind of outlet that like a big landromat dryer might plug into or some kind of big equipment.

Thanks!

A big "commercial outlet" (in the U.S.A.) like those for a dryer, electric range or industrial equipment might be 220vac, three wire, containing only two "hot" wires and a ground. If you are trying to split a 220 circuit into two 110vac circuits, you need a neutral conductor as well.
