Eaton releases Ampgard XP3 MV motor control centre
By Alyssa Dalton
February 6, 2014 – Designed to help identify equipment fatigue and simplify preventative maintenance, the Eaton Ampgard XP3 motor control centre boasts superior contactor-fuse coordination to quickly clear faults and minimize equipment damage.
Digital and analogue input/output boards eliminate complex control wiring to simplify circuit changes, says Eaton, adding that it enables control circuit modifications through software configuration rather than hardware additions. A starter display module indicates starter status, available fault current, incident energy and recommended personal protection equipment (PPE), and also calculates the thermal age of motors to provide replacement alerts to help minimize downtime.
