Larson Electronics has announced the release of 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-480-15K-120-208Y-12X20-2X30 portable 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. This system provides operators the ability to safely tap into and distribute 480 volts AC power from a variety of sources including generators and direct grid power. 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. Twenty 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 and two 30 amp, 240 volt breakers. Connection to 120/240 volt is provided by twelve 5-20 120 volt, GFCI waterproof duplex receptacles and two L6-30 240 volt twist lock receptacles with waterproof covers. The transformer and distribution assembly is mounted to a standard steel dolly cart style frame with two rubber tires to provide easier substation mobility, and a center point eyelet allows easy lifting with cable or chain hooks.

“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 distribution systems to meet the demands of customer specifications.”
