The building wiring is governed by the NEC, so a 240V 30A dedicated single outlet circuit needs to have a 30A or greater amp outlet. A 20A outlet on a 30A circuit is a no go. Using an adapter cord going from a 30A plug to a 20A socket end is an option. The correct way is to mount a small subpanel fed by the 30A circuit and have two 240V 20A circuits from that subpanel. Or one 240V 20A with multiple 20A outlets.
