Tap boxes provide a safe and efficient means of connecting a commercial or industrial business with a portable or auxiliary power source in the event of an outage or electrical complication, or during routine mechanical maintenance. A tap box is most frequently situated on the exterior of a building, wall or floor mounted, and used in conjunction with either a manual or an automatic transfer switch as the business’ needs dictate.
Our tap box products are available fitted with either NEMA 3R or NEMA 3RSS enclosures suitable for outdoor or indoor use. The enclosure is effective at mitigating dirt and airborne solids, as well as the ingress of water produced by standard precipitation, and it helps to reduce risks of contact with components for personnel.
Tap boxes from PSI Control Solutions come in ampacity ranges of 400-4,000 and are an ideal choice for retail stores, banks, small businesses, office buildings, hospitals, stadiums, educational facilities, manufacturing, and more.

Benefits of Equipping Your Business with a Generator Docking Station from PSI Control Solutions
Choosing to install a tap box for your business is an ideal way to deal with a variety of potential issues and planned maintenance situations. Using a tap box, as opposed to manual connection, offers your business:
A faster means of connecting to supplementary power. Once established, a tap box can be used within a matter of seconds—even less than a second with an automatic transfer switch configuration.
Far safer means of getting emergency power. Manually connecting to a portable generator is slower, and introduces far more hazards to personnel.
A less limited means of gaining auxiliary power. When a tap box is installed it will be assigned designated circuits to power, allowing your business the ability to power multiple setups all at once.
When used in combination with a manual or automatic transfer switch, a business can be reasonably prepared for the majority of complications or risks commonly involved with a sudden or unplanned outage. Tap boxes wired and connected with a manual transfer switch or ATS are suitable for supplying power to lights, emergency systems and PAs, heating and cooling, and refrigeration systems, as well as for use during routine mechanical maintenance and upkeep.
Our tap box products can all be ordered with additional accessories including testing kits, additionalCam-Lok® cables, mounting hardware, and ideal supplementary and complementary products (such as manual or automatic transfer switches).
