The portable power distribution system gives operators the ability to power their 240 volt and 120 volt equipment from a single system. On the primary side, operators connect 480 volt line-in power via 10` of #8 SOOW cord. On the secondary side, operators connect to one 30-amp, 240V pin/sleeve explosion proof receptacle for 240V equipment and to six 20-amp, 120V explosion proof receptacles for 120V equipment.
For increased reliability during operation, line-in power as well as connections between the disconnect and transformer and between the transformer and secondary panel consist of heavy-duty SOOW cords.
Operation: A 10` #8 SOOW line-in cord brings 480V single-phase power to the 40-amp rated 480V disconnect and passes the current to the 15 KVA explosion proof transformer. Liquid-tite flexible cord connect the primary panel to the transformer. The Class I, Division 2 15 KVA transformer converts 480V single-phase power to 120/240V single phase and passes the current to the secondary panel. Liquid-tite flexible cord connect the transformer to the secondary panel. The secondary side of the transformer feeds a 62.5-amp rated 120/240V single-phase main lug panel. This secondary panel contains one 30-amp, 240V breaker protecting one 30-amp, 240V explosion proof receptacle, and six 20-amp, 120V breakers protecting six 20-amp, 120V explosion proof receptacles. The receptacles are mounted to an aluminum back plate for easy connection for equipment in the field. All receptacles are equipped with weatherproof covers.
Protective Construction: Unlike many portable power distribution boxes made of plastic and utilizing thin gauge, low grade metals in their construction, this unit is designed for serious use and is ruggedly constructed to withstand demanding conditions and heavy duty industrial applications. The transformer and load assembly are mounted on a non-sparking aluminum mounting platform and the load center/distribution assembly is mounted to the standard 2" x 2" square non-sparking aluminum tubing frame, resulting in an extremely stable, durable and well protected power distribution platform. This model is equipped with forklift skid pockets, non-sparking locking casters, and four top located lifting eyelets at every corner which allow easy lifting with cable or chain hooks. This can be replaced with stainless steel or hot dip galvanized steel depending on the customer’s needs for an additional cost. Larger units are available upon request, and can be equipped with skids or trailer mounted.
