    A 400A three-phase (400V) power distribution board designed to distribute temporary power from one area to another. The 400A plug and play distribution board is easy to relocate across site and blends in well with the surrounding environment. All switchgear and Tri-rated wiring is housed within a purpose built polyethylene enclosure, with recessed socket and switchgear panels for mechanical protection. Transparent windows are used to allow visual identification of the switchgear status and allow access in event of a trip. The inlet supply has a phase rotation monitor and each outlet has a red ‘Power On’ neon light. External brass earth stud. Complete unit mounted within a stainless steel crash frame with forklift pockets.

    The enclosure is fabricated from black 10mm thick 300-grade high density polyethylene, offering good impact resistance, chemical resistance and high rigidity. Density of 0.96 g/cm³, less than 0.01% moisture absorption, service temperature from -50 to +80°C with greater than 1014 surface resistance. IK09 Rated.
