In many commercial and industrial applications, quite a few electric motors are required, and it is often desirable to control some or all of the motors from a central location. The apparatus designed for this function is the motor control center (MCC).
A combination starter is a single enclosure containing the motor starter, fuses or circuit breaker, and a device for disconnecting power.
Other devices associated with the motor, such as pushbuttons and indicator lights may also be included.
Our low voltage and medium voltage motor control centers are suitable for applications such as pulp and paper, mining and metals, utility, chemical, oil and gas, mass-production manufacturing, and water & waste water. Since 1940, GE motor control centers have been designed and manufactured with demanding applications like this in mind. Our MCCs offer an enormous amount of application flexibility while adhering to the most stringent industry standards.
