Emergency Power Ready

The generator connection box makes your facility “emergency power ready,” avoiding the clumsy and costly traditional process of bringing in temporary power. The many decisions that need to be resolved during a power outage crisis are eliminated. The installation of a Powertron Tap Box allows you to:

  • TapBox_flier_PowerHawkePredetermine load requirements
  • Predetermine generator sizing
  • Predetermine location for the temporary generator, eliminating customer and employee disruptions
  • Predetermine Cable lengths
  • Establish a quick method of connecting power – in most cases it can be made by the generator provider
  • Safety and security are not compromised with exposed cable connections running down hallways and through door ways

When you experience frequent power failures, a permanent natural gas or diesel genset is the best solution. Whenever the utility fails, power is restored within seconds.

When the cost of a permanent generator is prohibitive and there is a need to restore power to critical areas, the PowertronSM tap box is an economical and safe solution. You can be up and running within minutes from the time the portable generator is delivered, compared to the many hours it takes when no connection device is available.

  • The PowertronSM 400 amp through 1600 amp tap boxes are pass-through devices used with a manual or automatic transfer switch.  Powertron also makes custom sizes boxes through 4,000 amps.
  • The PowertronSM tap box is ready to receive temporary power fast and safely with virtually no disruption to the operation of your business
