Electrical Motor Control Center Installations

A motor control center (MCC) is an assembly of one or more enclosed sections having a common power bus and principally containing motor control units.  Motor control centers are in modern practice a factory assembly of several motor starters.  A motor control center can include variable frequency drives, programmable controllers, metering, and may also be the electrical service entrance for a building.  Motor control centers are usually used for three-phase alternating current motors from 208 V to 600 V.

A motor control center consists of one or more vertical metal cabinet sections with power bus and provision for plug-in mounting of individual motor controllers.  Very large controllers may be bolted in place but smaller controllers can be unplugged from the cabinet for testing or maintenance.  Each motor controller contains a contactor or a solid-state motor controller; overload relays to protect the motor, fuses or a circuit breaker to provide short-circuit protection, and a disconnecting switch to isolate the motor circuit.  Three-phase power enters each controller through separable connectors.  The motor is wired to terminals in the controller.  Motor control centers provide wire ways for field control and power cables.
