Hi Andrew,
Doubt you would fit tranny in a db.In the past,I have used a legrand transformer in a wall mounted cabinet from RS.Or you could have one
made up by a manufacturer.

You could consider sockets with integral transformers ?

Something like these

Reminds me of when I worked in Africa at a rural hospital.

The hospital was kindly donated two blood cleaning machines from the United States. The machines were rated at 110V, the local supply, 230V. The simple solution was to power them in series.

Not saying that's got anything to do with a working solution for you; it just reminded me

A word of warning about % volt drop. It will be 4 times larger at 110V than 230 so if the dist board is some distance away you might need larger cabling.
