Crystal Lake, IL - The KNAACK PowerCrewÂ 15-amp in-box power supply provides a safer solution for in-box power in any brand or style of jobsite box. It has four GCFI-protected electrical outlets providing 15 amps of power for operating tools or charging batteries. The power source comes via a standard three-prong/straight blade extension cord which plugs into the outside of the box.
The PowerCrew includes a number of important safety features. One of them, an internal relay, senses an open neutral conductor (a broken wire) in the power supply line. If this occurs, the relay remains open preventing electricity from reaching a person who might make contact with the broken wire. Another safety feature is the red LED that indicates the four outlets have power and are ready to power-up a tool or charger.
Listed with Underwriters Laboratory, the PowerCrew has been tested and determined to meet recognized safety standards from an independent laboratory. By receiving the UL listing, PowerCrew also has demonstrated compliance with OSHA-recognized test standards.
Recently, PowerCrew received a prestigious honor when it was selected as one of the Professional Builder and Professional Remodeler magazines¹ ³100 Best New Products² picks for 2009.
³PowerCrew is a safer solution for in-box power. And PowerCrew¹s reliability makes a jobsite more efficient,² said Tom Schwalie, Senior Product Manager, Knaack.
