Electric motors are used in most commercial and industrial applications, driving everything from packaging and processing equipment to fans and pumps. When multiple motors are utilized, it’s important to control them all from one location. The MCC panel (motor control center) is used as the primary means for controlling various motors needed for a facility’s electrical system.
This panel contains all motor control and protection devices (MCBs, contactors, timers, relays, MCCBs, isolators, bus bar, circuit breakers, transformers, limit switches, etc.) and is generally installed in the mechanical or electrical room of a facility. MCCs are classified as either low-voltage (for controlling motors from 230V to 1000V) or high-voltage (for controlling motors from 1000V to 15kV).
