Emergency Generator Hook Up

The quickest solution to connect a temporary generator to a large facility is via an emergency generator hook up device commonly called a Tap Box. An emergency generator hook up allows a facility to be “generator ready.” These emergency generator hook up devices (Tap Boxes) are available in several sizes based on amperage requirements. These may range from 400-4000 amps.

An emergency generator hook up also requires a means to transfer the building load from utility to backup generator. Most often this scheme would utilize a manual transfer switch. Another item to consider is have a pre-planned and prepositioned set of generator connection cables that go between the temporary generator and the emergency generator hook up device (Tap Box).

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 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.
