Allen-Bradley motor control center features access to critical motor status information
To meet motor control center (MCC) user needs for ease of installation, operation and troubleshooting outside North America, Rockwell Automation has developed the new Allen-Bradley Centerline 2500 MCC. Designed to meet global standards IEC 60439-1 and IEC 60529, the Centerline 2500 MCC with IntelliCENTER technology offers real-time MCC diagnostics and monitoring over DeviceNet, ControlNet or Ethernet, which gives users unprecedented access to critical motor status information. Rockwell Automation factory configures and tests all Centerline 2500 MCCs' DeviceNet networks to simplify end-user installation and enable system-wide information sharing to maximize uptime. Built-in DeviceNet with IntelliCENTER software eases information sharing for predictive maintenance, quick troubleshooting and safety.
The Centerline 2500 MCC features high unit density with up to 24 modules in each column. Users can easily withdraw individual units for fast replacement and minimize maintenance and downtime. Four unit positions (connected, test, disconnected and withdrawn) are lever-operated for tool-less withdrawal and insertion. The test position allows users to disconnect the power line and load, yet still remain connected to control power and DeviceNet, allowing users to test the units while still in the motor control center.
Centerline 2500 MCC features include arc containment latches to help protect against arc-flash hazards in the event of a fault, and three- and four-wire bus bar power systems to accommodate varying local requirements.
