Default 3 phase 200V, on (nominal 240) rotary phase converter

Greetings -

Looking for some advice on running a piece of equipment with a 3-phase
motor. It's tagged at 200V, with a nameplate that says "rerated to
specifications by G.E."

What's the frequency/RPM on the nameplate. 200V motors are often 50Hz.
200V/50Hz = 240V/60Hz = happy motor.
