What is temporary power and lighting?

Temporary power or portable power equipment provides power to a location that only requires power for a limited amount of time. This includes areas like construction or jobsite locations. These units provide a safe and convenient way to plug in power tools and other on-the-job equipment. Portable power can include portable power transformation units which may step up or step-down voltage. It may also include portable power carts to safely distribute power using outlets or connectors.

Ericson temporary power solutions include portable GFCIs and portable distribution units.

Temporary lighting solutions illuminate areas where workers need light but cannot install a permanent light fixture. Temporary work lights or job site lights often feature portability and a heavy-duty, durable construction. They may offer corrosion resistance, impact resistance, weather resistance, temperature resistance, and a wet or damp location rating.

Ericson lighting options include work lights, hand lamps, strings lights, and more.

Where do you use a portable GFCI?

A Ground Fault Circuit Interrupter, often referred to as a GFCI or GFI, detects ground faults or current imbalances. When a GFCI detects these changes, it cuts off power to prevent fires and electrical shock. Portable GFCI outlets provide this protection against ground faults at locations without a permanent GFCI, like construction or jobsites, or in certain outdoor settings. They allow workers to safely plug in tools, power cords, and other electrical devices while providing GFCI protection.

What is a cable and hose protector?

A cable and hose protector reduces the possibility of damage to cables and hoses. The cable or hose fits inside one of the channels and a cover closes over the top. This helps protect the cord from damage caused by vehicle or pedestrian traffic.

These cable and hose protectors feature an all-weather polyurethane construction, load ratings up to 50,000 pounds per axle, and meets NEC and OSHA requirements.
