A leading manufacturer of portable power distribution systems, Larson Electronics, announced the release of a 75 KVA mobile power distribution unit that converts 480VAC three phase electrical current into three phase 208Y/120VAC, allowing operators to tap into 480V power from generators, direct grid power and other sources. This power distribution system is mounted on a stainless-steel cart with locking casters and is ideal for indoor and outdoor power distribution.
The MGS-480D-75KVA-208Y.120-8X50A.208-2X20A.120 portable power distribution station gives operators the ability to power their 208 and 120-volt equipment from a single system. The primary panel is a NEMA 3R 225-amp 480Y/277V three phase main circuit breaker panel, which contains one, 100-amp 3-pole 480V breaker allowing operators to power equipment via a pass-through configuration. The 75 KVA transformer sends the converted voltage to the secondary panel, which feeds a NEMA 3R 100-amp 208Y/120V panel. The secondary panel consists of eight, 50-amp 2-pole 250 breakers which protect a total of eight, 50-amp 250V CS8269 receptacles, and two, 20-amp 125V breakers which protect two, 125V 20-amp 5-20R GFCI duplex receptacles.
This power distribution system is mounted on a stainless-steel platform with forklift skid pockets, locking casters and lifting eyelets for seamless transportation. This rugged construction offers consistent operation even during demanding use and unfavorable weather conditions. All panels are rated NEMA 3R for indoor and outdoor use and can withstand mildly corrosive elements, dust and moisture. Additionally, the transformer is grounded to the frame and comes with a grounding lug on the frame for the earth ground. The MGS-480D-75KVA-208Y.120-8X50A.208-2X20A.120 is built in accordance to NFPA 70 and certified UL 1640, and can be custom built to operator specifications.
“This unit provides operators with the ability to safely tap into and distribute 480VAC, but it can be customized to further fit our customer’s needs,” said Rob Bresnahan, CEO of Larson Electronics LLC. “Since we are a UL 1640 certified panel shop we can custom build any portable power distribution system at our location, which cuts down significantly on outsourcing time and costs”, he added.
