Motor Control Centers (MCC)

Motor Control Centers (MCC) Overview:

Motor Control Centers (MCC) is an assembly of one or more enclosed sections having a common power bus and principally containing motor control units. Also, MCC could include variable-frequency drives (VFD), programmable controllers and metering. It can be combined with the electrical service entrance during the building process. They are usually used for low voltage three-phase alternating current motors from 230 volts to 600 volts. A motor controller includes a manual or automatic means for starting and stopping the motor, choosing forward or reverse rotation, selecting and regulating the speed, adjusting or limiting the torque and protecting against overloads and faults. They serve an important purpose and cannot be ignored at any cost. One of the most important devices, they make sure that the current is properly distributed to all the devices allowing proper functioning. This also makes sure that none of the devices suffer from the effects of over currents or short circuits.

It is comprised of a free-standing enclosure, a bus bar system, MCCB’s, metering, supporting equipments and appropriate current transformers. Panels are then assembled in a systematic manner such as incoming and outgoing section. Motor Control Centers are used to distribute and control the power supply in large buildings such as shopping malls, hospitals, universities, Factories, and hotels.

The options offered by Horan Teknik MCCs are versatile enough to meet the needs of any construction site. The wall-mounted, free standing and modular cabinets meet the demands found in domestic, commercial and industrial buildings. The predominantly used material is sheet steel.
