Actually it is the other way around. It was 220V/380V and it is now 230V/400V as every where else in Europe. See IEC 60038 and [url]http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mains
I am just telling you what I see with a multimeter, which is where 380v comes from, never seen 400v in Zurich or Geneva.
From the page you link it says +/- 10% so it's actually in spec.
