Global IFS power & data solution through desk and floor

Power & Data Distribution

The most robust and flexible system for delivering power where needed.


The Global IFS Modular Power Distribution System (MPD) is the most versatile in the industry. It provides owners, consultants, facility managers and occupants with unlimited flexibility to meet the demands of today’s ever-changing office spaces. 

With our MPD system you have a system that’s economical, easily accessible and adaptable for future additions or reconfigurations. The Global MPD System is UL183 rated for installation beneath an access floor including the requirements of “air handling spaces other than plenums” per NEC Article 604. Utilizing just 5 basic components makes even complex floor plans easy to plan, install and maintain. Components arrive pre-wired and pre-tested, ready to install; eliminating field wiring with the exception of connection to the electrical panel.

Licensed Electrician terminates the Home Run Cable from the Main Distribution Box (MDB) at the main distribution panel. Other parts can be connected by other groups.
Licensed Electrician is required to connect all electrical parts.
Electrical parts are pre-tested and certified at the factory and can be laid into the floor plate by floor installers.
Electrician lays all fixed conduit through the floor plate. Electrical work must be field certified.
Changes can be made quickly by the Facility Management staff disconnecting a modular connector, moving the floor box and access floor panel and reconnecting the connector.
Changes require having multiple contractors come to x-ray the floor, determine structural ability to manage another hole in the floor, cutting a hole through the slab and electrician wiring a floor box in the slab.
