Larson Electronics’ Introduces Heavy Duty Power Distribution Substation

Share Article

The Magnalight MGS-DC-30KVA-480-220-110 heavy duty power distribution substation converts single phase or three phase 480 VAC electrical current to single phase 120V AC and 240V AC and provides GFCI and integral breaker protection on both input and line outs. This power substation provides an effective and safe current supply for operating equipment and lighting in areas where connection to native power is unavailable or not desired. This unit can be used to tap into 480 VAC from a variety of sources including generators and direct grid power which it then steps down to usable voltages and includes a dedicated 480 volt feed through for connecting a welding station.

The MGS-DC-30KVA-480-220-110 power transformer substation safely converts 480 VAC single or three phase current to commonly used 240 and 120 VAC , allowing operators in industrial and commercial work areas to tap into high voltage power sources and power their equipment independently of the work area when traditional power sources are unavailable or not desired. This heavy duty power distribution substation is ideal for providing workers with multiple power connections during plant turnarounds, maintenance, hazardous location operations, equipment upgrades, installations or repairs and any projects where an alternative to traditional power sources is required. This unit is designed for connection to single or three phase 480 VAC which it then steps down to 120 and 240 VAC. The entire unit is completely weatherproof and can be configured for single phase or three phase operation. Made in the USA, this heavy duty substation includes a fully potted transformer, weatherproof GFCI outlets and weather tight panel box. The unit is powder coated for a durable finish; skid mounted for ease of transport and can withstand regular use in areas exposing it to rain and direct spray. The standard frame design is constructed of ¼ inch thick, 3 inch square tubing with stainless steel, hot dip galvanized steel or aluminum available as options depending on the user’s requirements. The MGS-DC-30KVA-480-220-110 power transformer provides 120 VAC through 10 GFCI protected receptacles and 240 VAC through two GFCI protected 240 VAC outlets, allowing multiple power connections to one source. 20 Feet of SEOOW Line Power Cord connects to a fused ON/OFF disconnect switch which controls power to the 30 KVA, 480 Volt Transformer and 5 foot pigtails provide primary connection to 60 amp, 480V power. Once stepped down, power is distributed through 12 GFCI protected onboard power receptacles and a 480 Volt feed through for welding substations. Integrated breaker boxes are included on both the input end and output end to provide the maximum in safety and reliability. Transport is facilitated through the inclusion of integral frame mounted forklift pockets and a top located lifting eyelet, allowing operators to quickly and easily lift, load or move the unit as needed. This unit is ideal for powering explosion proof lighting and equipment or welding substations and is well suited for use in marine environments as well as general plant turnaround and maintenance operations. Larson Electronics' Magnalight is a manufacturer and as such can build these transformers to custom specifications and deliver custom ordered units almost as quickly as prebuilt versions.

“Our Magnalight power distribution substations offer operators portable versatility for running their equipment for plant or tank maintenance,” said Rob Bresnahan with Larson Electronics’ “As we continue to develop new power distribution solutions to support our work site lighting, we continue to productize the custom designs we build for customers. If operators provide custom specifications, we can design and build spider boxes or transformer based distribution systems within a few weeks. “

Larson Electronics’ manufactures and distributes a wide variety of power distribution substations, solar powered generators, inline transformers, hazardous location lights, intrinsically safe lights and a large line of explosion proof equipment and accessories.
