Power. When and where you need it.

Power Base is the only modular electrical system that

delivers seamless plug-and-play power from the closet to

the desktop. It’s also the only system backed by a solid

history of innovation and reliability.

After all, it was Haworth that pioneered the first modular

power solutions for use in systems furniture more than

30 years ago. Today, this industry-leading product line has

evolved into an integrated power delivery platform that

provides both three- and four-circuit solutions for every

workspace application, including freestanding and systems

furniture, moveable walls, access floors, and ceilings.


Zone Distribution Boxes provide the transition from a building’s electrical system to Power Base AI’s modular power distribution system. Available in three configurations — with one 8-wire port, two 8-wire ports, or three 8-wire ports — to easily accommodate a range of power densities.

Power Base Voice & Data Zone Distribution Box

Jumpers connect Zone Distribution Boxes, Service Modules, Splitters, and Infeeds for Haworth furniture and walls. Available in lengths from 5 to 50 feet, Jumpers provide plug-and-play connection between all of the system components.

Splitters are small connector blocks that connect up to four Jumpers and allow the branching of power anywhere in the system. Splitters also enable lean and agile layouts that keep first costs low while maintaining flexibility.

Service Modules provide in-floor power and voice/data access and are available in quad and dual receptacle configurations. All Power Base AI Service Modules offer Haworth’s patented snap-in receptacles, which allow quick change of circuit assignments and minimize the number of components in inventory.

Power Base AI

Part of the Power Base family of solutions, Power Base AI is designed specifically for architectural applications. Unlike other electrical systems rated for underfloor or ceiling use, Power Base AI uses just four components, making even large and complex applications easier to plan, install, and maintain. And every component is reusable, so there’s virtually no waste, and the system can be changed or expanded at any time.

Power Base Voice & Data

Power Base Voice & Data solutions include zone box housings and service outlets

compatible with all brands of premise cabling products, allowing Haworth to

integrate with any existing IT standard.

Haworth can also provide a Haworth cabling solution using the Power Base Voice

& Data Pre-Terminated Zone system, which offers a range of multi-port zone boxes

and pre-terminated, pre-tested cabling, as well as data closet components. It’s a

zone-based, plug-and-play cabling system that installs fast and reconfigures even

faster. Here are a few more Pre-Terminated Zone advantages:

• Arrives factory pre-tested and pre-terminated, limiting on-site labor and accelerating installation.

• Offers 100% reusability and virtually no waste. • Exceeds TIA/EIA and ISO standards.

Power Base

The original Power Base system is used in Haworth’s furniture and moveable walls. Power Base is an

unsurpassed solution when you need quick circuit access, flexibility, durability, ease of management,

and dedicated circuitry. Unlike other off-the-shelf systems, Power Base is designed

and manufactured by Haworth, for Haworth. That’s why, as part of Haworth’s overall commitment

to sustainability, Power Base is PVC free.

Flexible Connectors tie PDAs together. They are included with all powered panels. These plug-and-play connectors are keyed and color coded to distinguish the various circuit options and prevent wiring errors.

Receptacles with programmable circuit assignments are a Haworth innovation. They are designed for maximum flexibility, and they minimize the investment in spare parts inventory.

Infeeds can deliver power via a floor box, underfloor or ceiling system, or power tap in a wall or column. Haworth’s systems can be connected to building power through traditional fixed wire and conduit, but are most adaptable when connected through floor- or ceiling-based Power Base AI.

Power Distribution Assemblies (PDAs) are the heart of Power Base. Built into Haworth walls, panels, and tables, or quickly retrofitted in the field, these proven electrical components have a 25-year track record. And, all Haworth PDAs are non-handed for unrestricted component placement.


Choosing a 3- or 4-Circuit Design

Haworth’s Power Base is available in both 3- or 4-circuit

configurations, making it easier to adapt to specific user

needs and building electrical systems. To assure safety,

Power Base connectors are color coded, labeled, and

keyed to prevent connection between incompatible

circuit configurations.

It’s important to understand the advantages and

disadvantages of each circuit configuration before

choosing either 3-circuit or 4-circuit. The guide on the

facing page is meant to help you make an informed

decision based on your application.

3-Circuit/Separate Neutrals

This option provides 3 circuits, each with its own neutral.

Here’s what to consider:

• Aligns with the 3 phase national power grid and most North American buildings.

• Is compatible with the following building power configurations: › 3 phase (208Y/120V)

› Three wire single phase (120/240V) › Single phase (120V)

• Offers the most adaptability to special power needs such as: › multiple power sources

› facility energy control

› isolation of high harmonic loading

• Features receptacles with patented on-site circuit access programmability (available only on Power Base for furniture). • Offers receptacles in common ground or isolated

ground configurations.


This option provides 4 circuits, two circuits share neutral #1, two

circuits share neutral #2. Here’s what to consider:

• Provides more circuits (4 vs. 3) for each homerun from the electrical closet, which can reduce the installed cost per circuit. • Is compatible with the following building power configurations:

› 3 phase (208Y/120V)

› Three wire single phase (120/240V)

• Is sometimes less adaptable to special power needs such as multiple power source or facility energy control.

› Special power needs are typically planned in sets of two circuits › In some cases, 10 gauge shared neutral may not fully isolate circuits

• Modular receptacles have fixed circuit access. • Offers receptacles in common ground or isolated

ground configurations.
