Does PM5000 series supports High leg Delta wiring?

Customer wants to know if the PM5000 series can be wired as high leg delta or not?

Product line
PM5110, PM5330, PM5340, PM5560, PM5563

Application requires the installation of a power meter or replacement existing meter in a high leg delta system.

Yes, PM5000 series can be wired as a high leg delta with the system type as 3-phase 4-wire center-tapped delta. 
In addition, the PM5000 series meter can be set to 3-phase 4-wire open center-tapped delta in a case of a three-phase load is small relative to the total load.
In this case, two indicidual transformers may be used instead of the three for a "full delta" or a three-phase transformer. 

The PM5000 series can support all the power system listed below in table. For the wiring diagram, refer to the installation guide for each model of PM5000 series.
