By Anthony Capkun
April 6, 2021 – ABB says its ReliaGear low-voltage motor control centre is “built for simplicity and durability”. The LV MCC is UL/cUL 845 listed and available globally in all ANSI markets where NEMA standards are prevalent and/or required.
The MCC is engineered for use in demanding applications such as pulp & paper, mining & metals, utility, chemical, oil & gas, water and wastewater, etc.
The retractable stab mechanism allows for closed-door racking, while the integrated surge protection device mitigates risk from surge events, such as lightning. The reinforced door latches are 21x stronger than previous designs, adds ABB.
ACS580 variable frequency drives are compatible with a range of fieldbus protocols, allowing for integration with other systems. Tmax XT moulded case circuit breakers offer the option for Ekip trip units, with the added ability for digital protection, management, measurement and remote monitoring.
