Powering Motor Control Centers

in Small-business

In industries where a large number of machines are running simultaneously, Motor Control Centers are the best way to group grouping motor control, associated control and distribution equipment. With time Electrical Contractors (EC) are being employed to look after the proper functioning of motor control centers. It is important to install optimum quality motor controls to ensure high efficiency at a reasonable price. These motor control assemblies are now a days installed with human machine interface touch screen panel for proper monitoring of the machinery.

Benefits Of Efficient Motor Control Centers

  • It makes the assembling of motor control centers and determination of power requirements relatively easy: It requires only one set of incoming wires to distribute power to all the devices.
  • Easy detection and solution of the problems: In case of any problem in the motor assemblies, it can be easily unplugged and installed with backup units.
  • Reduces installation cost: As the motor controllers can be fed by a single incoming feeder, several drives can be supplied with incoming power. This reduces the laboring and wiring cost considerably.
  • The need for auxiliary devices is eliminated, as they are enclosed directly to the motor control centers.

Plugging of units into motor control center has some complexities. Though easy but plugging has to be done with extra caution. Electrical Contractors need to:

  • Mount each enclosure on the wall individually
  • Configure incoming power to each enclosure. Single large enclosure can solve the problem of space taken by many enclosures.
  • Consider overload protection and prevent accidental starting of machines

Motor control centers have made the job of motor control easy and economical. Motor control centers are largely being installed in industries and commercial sectors motor control and branch circuit protection. Large numbers of activities at motor control centers are now being automatically controlled to minimize the error.

Electrical contractors are finding ways to take a motor control project from an idea or design, prepare a wiring diagram, determine the components for the enclosure and complete a fully automatic control system for a variety of commercial or industrial purposes. For residential applications, system integration includes the automation of lighting, blinds, awnings, home theater and computer systems using software and hardware. To ensure smooth functioning of motor control centers, the Electrical Contractors can take the assistance of companies offering custom control, instrumentation panels, nerve centers, industrial process automation systems, etc. The maintenance of the motor control centers are also looked after by these companies.

The companies offering services for the smooth functioning of motor control centers have their websites online. The industries and commercial centers just have to zero in the company suiting their requirements in the best possible manner.
