Larson Electronics, a Texas-based company with over 40 years of experience in the industrial lighting and equipment sectors, announced the release of a mobile power distribution substation that allows operators to safely tap into and distribute 120V-240V AC power from generators and direct grid power. This power distribution panel accepts 120/240V AC single-phase electrical current on the primary side. This unit is grounded to the frame via a grounding lug that is provided.

The MGP-CF-120.240-100MB-8X120-RD mobile power distribution panel features a primary side that allows operators to connect 120/240V line-in power through 10 feet of #4 Type W cord with a 100-amp 125/250V 4100P12W cord cap. The secondary side allows operators to connect eight 5-20R GFCI receptacles for 120V equipment.

Larson Electronics’ portable power distribution system features a 10-foot #4 Type W line-in cord that brings single-phase 120/240V AC into the NEMA 3R 100-amp 120/240V single-phase main circuit breaker panel. The main panel features eight 20-amp 1-pole breakers protecting eight 20-amp 125V 5-20R GFCI duplex receptacles that are equipped with weatherproof covers. The transformer and load assembly are mounted to a 3/16” thick carbon steel mounting platform.

The load center/distribution assembly on this unit is mounted to a 2” by 2” by 1/8” square carbon steel tubing frame and comes with forklift skid pockets, locking casters and a top located lifting eyelet. Suitable applications include indoor and outdoor use, construction sites, plant maintenance and turnarounds, and more.
