The HAL-MPD-480.3P-15KVA-8X120.20 explosion proof power distribution system gives operators the ability to power their three-phase 120V equipment from 480V line-in power.

On the primary side operators connect three-phase 480-volt line-in power via 20 feet of #12 SOOW cable and to one, 20-amp rated Class I, Division 1 and 2 explosion proof 480V primary circuit breaker disconnect. The transformer converts 480V three-phase power to 208Y/120V three phase and passes the current to the secondary panel. Liquid-tite flexible cord connects the transformer to the secondary panel, which feeds a 50-amp rated Class I, Division 1 and 2 explosion proof 208Y/120V three-phase main lug only panel. This secondary panel contains eight, 20-amp 125V 1-pole breakers protecting eight, 20-amp 125V EFS250-2023 GFCI Class I, Division 1 and 2 explosion proof receptacles in a quad double-gang configuration.

This unit is designed for serious use, constructed to withstand demanding conditions and heavy-duty industrial applications. The 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 for additional reliability. All receptacles are equipped with weatherproof covers to protect from outdoor elements.

The HAL-MPD-480.3P-15KVA-8X120.20 is mounted on a non-sparking aluminum mounting platform equipped with forklift skid pockets, non-sparking locking casters, and four, top located lifting eyelets at every corner allows easy lifting with cable or chain hooks.

“This portable power distribution system is a very reliable option for remote or temporary worksites where external power sources are needed,” said Rob Bresnahan, CEO of Larson Electronics LLC. “Operators have the flexibility to power 208Y/120V equipment from a single source, which is extremely convenient for applications where a lot is going on.”
