Portable Power Distribution Purpose and Use
The MPD-480D-150KVA-208Y.120-ATS.400A portable power distribution system gives operators the ability to power their 208 volt and 120 volt equipment from a single system. On the primary side, operators connect three phase 480 volt line-in power via a customer provided cord. On the secondary side, operators can bring 208Y/120V line-in power into the secondary panel via a selectable automatic transfer switch.
Operation: A customer provided line-in cord brings 480V three phase power to the NEMA 3R 200-amp, 480V three phase primary disconnect, which contains three 200-amp time delay fuses, and passes 480V three phase through to the transformer. The NEMA 3R 150 KVA transformer converts 480V to 208Y/120V three phase and passes the current to the secondary panel. The secondary side of the transformer feeds a 208Y/120V three phase 400-amp main circuit breaker NEMA 3R panel. Operators may also choose to instead bring in 208Y/120V three phase power via a NEMA 3R 400-amp, 208Y/120V three phase automatic transfer switch, which passes 208Y/120V three phase power to the secondary panel.
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 is mounted on a 3/16" thick carbon steel mounting platform and the load center/distribution assembly is mounted to the standard 2" x 2" x 1/8" square carbon steel tubing frame, resulting in an extremely stable, durable and well protected power distribution platform. This model is equipped with forklift skid pockets, locking casters, and a top located lifting eyelet which allows easy lifting with cable or chain hooks. This can be replaced for an additional cost with stainless steel, hot dip galvanized steel, or aluminum depending on the customer’s needs. Larger units are available upon request and can be equipped with skids or trailer mounted.
Certification: Larson Electronics is a UL 1640 panel shop and certified to build portable power distribution systems. All units are built in accordance to NFPA 70 (National Electric Code) and certified to UL 1640. All equipment is NEMA 3R rated for indoor and outdoor use and provide a degree of protection against dirt, water, and ice. NEMA 4 and NEMA 4X equipment can be equipped upon request.
Grounding: Transformer is grounded to the frame and we provide a grounding lug on the frame for the earth ground.
~Please check all motor loads for dual rated motors that will work 208 or 240.~
Applications: This power distribution system is ideal for indoor or outdoor use and applications including but not limited to, construction sites, plant maintenance, plant turnarounds, shows, exhibits, and shipyard operations. These power distribution systems are popularly used in applications where external power sources are often necessary. We also offer class rated transformers for use within explosion proof and hazardous location environments.
