Temporary power distribution system features 480-volt transformer

Power management: Larson Electronics has announced a new portable power distribution system that converts 480 volts AC three phase electrical current to 120 volts AC and 208Y volts AC. The MGL-100C-480-15K-120-208Y-12X20 temporary power distribution system provides a safe and reliable way for operators in industrial settings to tap into and utilize power sources independently of the work area. The transformer is designed to operate with 480 volts, three phase which is then stepped down to single phase 120 volts AC and three phase 208Y volts AC. One hundred feet of Type W line-in power cord is included to connect the substation to a primary 480 volt three phase power supply. The secondary current is wired to a 120/208Y, three phase 100 amp load center with main breaker for circuit protection. The 120 volt line-out protection is provided by twelve 20 amp, 125 volt, 1 pole breakers. Connection to 120 volt is provided by twelve 5-20 120 volt, GFCI waterproof duplex receptacles with weatherproof covers. The transformer and distribution assembly is mounted to a standard steel dolly cart style frame resulting in an extremely stable, durable, and mobile power distribution platform. Two rubber tires and a cart style mounting platform provide easier substation mobility, and a center point lift eye allows for easy lifting with cable or chain hooks. This power distribution system is NEMA 3R rated and ideal for many indoor and outdoor applications.

“This unit provides an effective power distribution system for operators performing plant turnarounds, maintenance and cleaning in hazardous areas, equipment installations and repairs, and other activities requiring an alternative to native power sources,” said Rob Bresnahan with Larsonelectronics.com. “As a manufacturer, Larson can modify these power distribution systems to meet the demands of customer specifications.”

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