Power management: Larson Electronics has released a 50 KVA power distribution panel system that converts 480 volts AC to single phase 120 and 240 volts AC. The MGS-480.2X30A.2X60A-50K-4X240-6X120 power distribution system provides a safe and effective way for operators in industrial settings to tap into and utilize power sources independently of the work area. This unit is designed to operate with 480 volts AC, which is then stepped down to 120 volts AC single phase and 240 volts AC single phase. This transformer makes 120 volts available through six GFCI protected 20 amp receptacles with weather proof covers and 240 volts available via four L6-30 receptacles with weatherproof covers. This portable power distribution system also provides two 30 amp, 480 volt receptacles and two 60 amp, 480 volt receptacles for welding. On the primary side, a 250 amp main breaker 480 volt panel provides protection for the two 30 amp, two 60 amp receptacles and the 50 KVA transformer. On the secondary side, a 200 amp main breaker panel provides protection for the six 20 amp 120 volt outlets and the four 30 amp 240 volt outlets.

Unlike many portable power distribution boxes made of plastic and utilizing thin gauge, low grade metals in their construction, this unit is designed and ruggedly constructed to withstand demanding conditions and heavy duty industrial applications. The transformer and distribution assembly is mounted onto a rugged, powder coated, carbon steel frame with integrated skid pockets and a top located lifting eyelet that allows for easy lifting with cable or chains. The transformer and load assembly is mounted on a 3/16” thick carbon steel mounting platform and the load center and distribution assembly is mounted to the 2” by 2” by 1/8” square carbon steel tubing frame. This power distribution system is often used in applications where external power sources are often necessary and is ideal for use in applications such as plant maintenance, construction sites, as a welding station, shows and exhibits and shipyard operations.
“Larson Electronics is a manufacturer and can build power distribution systems to customer specifications,” said Rob Bresnahan with Larsonelectronics.com. “If this particular unit doesn’t meet your requirements, please call us today and discuss those with one of our representatives.”

Larson Electronics carries an extensive line of LED light towers, portable power distribution systems, explosion proof lights for hazardous locations, portable work lights and industrial grade LED area lights.
