Centerline 2500 motor control centres save on ­installation and commissioning time

March 2016 Motion Control & Drives

The Centerline 2500 intelligent motor control centres from Rockwell Automation deliver new levels of performance from design, through installation and commissioning to operation and safety.

By combining a smaller footprint and full, comprehensive type testing with enhanced total cost of ownership, Rockwell Automation has addressed customer needs and growing worldwide demand for factory-ready, space, energy and cost-efficient motor control solutions with the new MCC.

Available fully assembled with a factory-installed, preconfigured and validated Ethernet/IP network infrastructure, Centerline 2500 MCCs can also exploit the company’s global manufacturing facilities in conjunction with its FasTrak delivery programme, meaning that users can have a fully-operational MCC installed and operating much quicker than before.

In addition to the programming and networking infrastructure, the user interface can also be preconfigured, so the system is truly plant-floor ready when delivered. Thanks to this extensive pre-configuration and pre-testing program, users have the potential to save up to 90% on development, commissioning and installation time.

Safety is addressed through the use of an industry leading arc-containment design, which contains an arc fault to the area of occurrence and helps prevent it from cascading throughout the enclosure and damaging other equipment. It also helps improve personnel protection by providing arc containment to protect personnel at the front, rear and sides of the enclosure in the unlikely event of an arcing fault.
