Power supply kl-6520 - connecting it in Europe?

hey all..
I have a small problem with a power supply I bought from
www.kelinginc.net (kl-6520 power supply)
the problem is that I can not figure out how to connect it to the electricity grid in my workshop, there are 4 wires: 2 black and 2 red . since I live in Denmark (Northern Europe) we use 220 and 400 volts so I assume that I need the setup for 220 VAC, it says
1st red wire to neutral, 1st black wire to 2nd red wire, and the 2nd black wire to hot.

here comes the problem:
the outlet for 220 volts in Denmark has 3 legs, 1 ground and 2 phase
However, the 400 volt has 3 phase and ground.
or 2 phase 1 zero and 1 ground .
I'm really not a Electricity genius because I cabinetmakers
are there some who can help me, if it makes sense
what I write...!

European 220v power has phase on one leg second is neutral and third is grounding. You can take power from 400V socket too, it has voltage between phases 400v and voltage between one phase and neutral 220V.

That is not correct

The transformer must not be connected to ground

You only use neutral and phase:
phase to 1st red wire, 1st black wire to 2nd red wire, and the 2nd black wire to neutral.

The case of the power supply is connected to ground.
