Product Usage

Tap box units offer an effective method of accessing alternative and emergency power when performing equipment maintenance or when problems such as utility power loss of emergencies occur. It is ideal to preemptively wire tap box connections to desired circuits and equipment via manual transfer switch, however connections can also be made manually via additional Cam-Lok® cables if needed.

When outages or maintenance occurs, tap box systems are efficient at maintaining lights, emergency equipment, HVAC, audio equipment, supply and storage (refrigeration), and similar applications. Using either manual switch or direct cable connections tap boxes are used to route emergency power (portable generators and similar equipment) quickly and safely, helping to both minimize downtime and potential electrical hazards.

Generator tap boxes with a pad or floor mount offer emergency power solutions in a variety of applications, including:

  • Lift stations
  • Gas stations
  • Data centers
  • Grocery and retail
  • Water/wastewater facilities
  • Healthcare facilities

Our products and custom fabricated power solutions are designed to be easy to mount and install, but buyers should be aware of specific amperage and voltage needs as well as any requirements on their end. It is recommended you seek the assistance of a trained electrician if no maintenance personnel suitable to assist you is available. And as always, Salient’s team members are always ready to assist, so never hesitate to contact us via e-mail or phone to learn more or get answers.
