I'm preparing for a shoot in a nightclub, and they have cam-lok tails available for us to use. But nobody at the venue can tell me any more details than that. I need to figure out how much power is available exactly. I took this photo of the fuse box, and it looks to me like 100A per leg for 300A total. Can someone confirm that please? I can see that the cam-lok tails has 3 hots, neutral, and ground.
Also — I'm assuming each phase-neutral is 120v, but what would be the standard voltage phase-phase in this kind of venue? Just curious, in case we have any 240v units.

Thanks in advance for any help!

You seem to be on the right track, although the fuses also say 250v. I would always recommend getting a qualified electrician to have a look if details of the supply are fuzzy - don't want to blow anything up!

Typically with a three phase live to live is 1.73 x line voltage; as the three waveforms are 120 degrees out of sync, and do not peak at the same time.
