Generator Industry Product Support

Generator Connection Point

This solution is designed to restore power to critical applications. It can be fitted inside or outside of a building, allowing a safe and quick connection of a back-up generator to your client’s electrical system when required. Often included as an added value solution when pitching contingency plans to businesses.

Automatic/Manual Changeovers

A quick and easy solution designed to divert power from your client’s electrical supply to the back-up generator in the event of a power failure. Most commercial facilities require a changeover panel to support the back-up generator as a standard part of their contingency power package.

Mains Distribution (630A – 4000A)

Often used to support long-term projects, our mains distribution boards are designed to supply temporary power to a wide range of applications. All solutions are manufactured from stainless steel and are easily relocatable across site. Like all of our products, our mains distribution boards can be engineered to suit the requirements of your project.

Event Distribution Boards (16A – 400A)

Compact solutions designed to distribute temporary power from one area to another. Easy to relocate across site and blends in well with the surrounding environment. Our event boards are designed with an emergency stop button as an additional safety feature and have USB sockets which allow for on-site device charging.

Smart Power Distribution

A concept that allows you to monitor the power usage on each socket from your laptop or smart device. Monitoring your data more effectively will help contribute to your client significantly reducing their on-site carbon emissions. The concept can be built into a wide range of applications, including: event distribution boards, mains distribution boards and site distribution boards.

Site Distribution Boards

Robust solutions (ranging from 125A-4000A) designed to distribute temporary power from one area to another. Easy to relocate across site and can be hardwired into the nearest temporary generator. This solution is often used on construction projects to power site cabins, lighting, heaters, tools and plant equipment.

Cable Solutions

Designed to connect your generator to the nearest power supply. For event applications, plug and play multi-core cable is regularly used to connect the temporary power network from the generator directly to the end user.

We also offer single-core cable which can be terminated with lugs or power lock ends to make connections to standby or permanent generators. All of our cable solutions are available for purchase or hire and can be turned around quickly to support your project.

Generator Bolt Ons

Our vast experience in the generator industry means IDE can provide an unbeatable range of additional services. This includes specialist tasks like adding socket outlets (bolt-on to built-in), loadbank connection points (breaker interlocked) and auto-transfer switches to your generator package.
