Medium Voltage products, from across-the-line starters to soft starters and variable frequency AC drives, deliver enhanced protection in applications ranging up to several thousand horsepower. Bringing motors up to speed in a controlled manner limits wear on the motor and other mechanical components. This protects your investment and is a key benefit of our medium voltage systems.
Of all the motors in your manufacturing process, medium voltage motors can have a large impact on your continued success. Developing medium voltage motor control and protection has been a core discipline for Rockwell Automation® for more than 70 years. Choose from our CENTERLINE® or OneGear™ product lines to meet your global needs.
Medium Voltage Soft Starters apply reduced voltage to a medium voltage AC motor to allow soft starting and stopping, limit the inrush current, and reduce the effects of water hammer in pumping systems.
PowerFlex® 7000 Medium Voltage Drives enable soft-starting and variable-speed control of processes with high power demands. They help reduce energy costs, component count, maintenance and motor wear.
IntelliCENTER® software provides the ultimate window into your MCC. The software puts both real-time diagnostics and MCC documentation at your fingertips to maximize the performance of your MCC and related equipment. The graphical views of individual MCC units display device data and let you quickly view critical status information. The Integration Assistant feature lets you automatically build an I/O tree in the Studio™ 5000 environment or automatically populate the meter data in FactoryTalk® EnergyMetrix™ using information from IntelliCENTER Software. IntelliCENTER Energy provides the automatic, pre-configured setup of FactoryTalk EnergyMetrix for intelligent motor control devices in the motor control center.
