What is a Motor Control Centre?

A Motor Control Centre is a grouping of various motor control & distribution devices in one common enclosure, fed from a common bus system

A Motor Control Centre consists of 4 basic components: -Incoming -Enclosure -Bus System -Units .

Cutler-Hammer manufactures 2 lines of Motor Control Centres Freedom Series 2100 Advantage .

up to 1000 MCM 6 per phase. Top or bottom entry Lugs are connected to Vertical Bus. Screw or Crimp type.Incoming Main Lugs Only MCC fed by upstream CB or Fusible Switch and therefore there is no means to disconnect power at the MCC. which has the same rating as the Horizontal Bus (up to 1600A) .

2000A & 2500A) Frame are stnd with Digitrip RMS 310 Electronic Trip .Incoming Main Circuit Breaker Cutler-Hammer Series ‘C’ Circuit Breakers ‘F’ (150A & 225A) Frame comes standard with Thermal Magnetic trips only K (400A) & L (600A) Frame are available with Thermal Magnetic or optional Digitrip RMS 310 Electronic Trip N (800A & 1200A) & R (1600A.

without short circuit protection .Incoming Main Fusible Switch Cutler-Hammer heavy duty Industrially rated K Switch Available up to 1200 Amps Molded Case Switch Using Hi-Mag CB (MCS) to provide disconnecting means at MCC.
