    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.

    125A site distribution board designed to make connection from the temporary generator to on-site equipment such as tools, lighting, heaters, plant machinery and cabins. Our site distribution boards are kept on standby at our three strategically placed locations across the UK, so we can deliver them to you quickly. 125A site distribution boards can be custom built to suit the needs of your project. Available to purchase or hire.

    Product details
    The site distribution board is housed in a 1.4003 stainless steel enclosure, designed to IP55 with a textured powder coat finish to RAL 7021 – dark grey. The site distribution board features two doors – the main door, which allows the user access to the final distribution circuits and has a padlock facility which is designed as an additional safety feature. The second door allows the user access to the mains switch only.
    The 125A site distribution board has a bottom entry 3mm aluminium gland plate, top mounted rain cover, and pre-punched sides to allow for socket mounting (16A, 32A & 63A – IP44 & IP67). The enclosure is mounted within a galvanized box section floor stand which can be easily relocated across site.
    The equipment has an incoming 4 pole thermal magnetic strip and optional adjustable/switchable incoming earth leakage can be added if required. The 4 pole busbar distribution system allows an easy connection for 2 pole and 4 pole outgoing devices such as RCD’s and RCBO’s. The internal earth bar is bonded to external studs on enclosure and frame. The equipment has an incoming 125A IP67 flying lead to allow for connection to a temporary generator.
