Electrical Question: Do I have enough power for my portable AC units



Question:
I'm working with some portable air conditioner air conditioner units and each requires 1 Phase, 208/230V, 20amp.

I have (4) units total. I'm bringing these to a venue that can provide 200amp 3-phase power.

The venue has told me to bring in my own 208v distribution box with compatible NEMA connectors.

My question is - is this enough power to support the (4) portable air conditioner air conditioner units??

Yes - The 3 Phase 200 Amp power is more than enough to supply for you're air conditioner air conditioner units. Special attention will be required to make the correct connections between your power units and the 3 Phase supply.
As they have mentioned, the right NEMA Connectors will be required, Male and Female, with matching voltage and amperage configurations.

 

You may want to ask the location if they have an on-site electrician that can assist you, otherwise it would be wise to locate one to make sure the connections are correct and allow time in case the electrician needs to make a trip to the supply house to get the appropriate connectors, cords etc.

Be Careful and Be Safe - Never Work on Energized Circuits!
