Energy management: 30-KVA power distribution system

Power management: Larson Electronics has released a 30-KVA power distribution system that converts three phase or single phase 480 volts AC to single phase 120 and 240 volts AC. The MGS-DC-30KVA-480-220-110 power distribution system provides a safe and effective way for operators in industrial settings to tap into and use power sources independently of the work area. This unit is designed to operate with 480 volts AC three phase or single phase, which then steps down to 120 volts AC single phase and 240 volt single phase.

This transformer makes 120 volts available through 10 GFCI protected receptacles and 240 volts available via two outlets. This portable power distribution system also provides a 480-volt feed through for a welding substation. Twenty-foot fo SOOW cable connects to a fused ON/OFF disconnect switch that controls the power to the 30 KVA, 480 volt transformer. Unlike many portable power distribution boxes made of plastic and utilizing thin gauge, low grade metals in their construction, this unit is designed and ruggedly constructed to withstand demanding conditions and heavy duty industrial applications. The transformer is mounted to a 3/16 in. carbon steel mounting platform and the distribution assembly is mounted onto a rugged 2 in. by 2 in. by 1/8 in. square steel tubing frame with rectangular carbon steel skid pockets and a top mounted eyelet to allow for ease of transport. This unit incorporates NEMA 3R panels and is ideal for use in applications such as plant maintenance, hazardous location operations, as a welding station, shows and exhibits and marine applications.

“Larson Electronics is a manufacturer and can build power distribution systems to customer specifications,” said Rob Bresnahan with “This unit is built to provide operators the ability to use 480 volts and operate equipment that runs on 120 volts by stepping the power down.”

Larson Electronics specializes in portable industrial lighting equipment, high mast light towers, explosion proof light fixtures, power distribution systems, LED lighting and more.
