Temporary Power

Understanding your temporary power distribution needs

IDE has over 25 years' experience in designing power distribution solutions. With direct access to our skilled engineers, we can help you understand and specify solutions for any event.

Optimising your temporary power distribution network

IDE supplies a full range of temporary power distribution panels from 4000A generator connections to small dual 16A sockets, and all connecting cable to ensure you optimise your temporary power network. We fit the product to the application.

Quality and safety assured

Every time any of our products leave our rental depot or manufacturing base, we test operation and safety. This includes EVERY socket, EVERY breaker, EVERY cable connection to ensure the highest reliability.

Long-term partnership

We can help you plan ahead, ensuring you get the best from your temporary power distribution set-up and our expert services. We can also manage your complete distribution fleet, or provide one stop rental management.

The automatic mains failure (AMF) panel is designed to divert power from your main generator to your back-up generator in the event of power failure. Our automatic mains failure panels (available 400A-630A) are manufactured from High Density Polyethylene (HDPE) which has a high resistance against harsh weather conditions and chemical corrosion.

Inline Protection (IP) units provide an added level of safety where needed. Offering over load and residual current detection to protect personnel and equipment.
