Electrical Safety Solutions

We offer a broad electrical safety program that combines arc containment, intelligent components, personal safety features, and services. The low and medium voltage CENTERLINE Motor Control Centers (MCCs) and medium voltage PowerFlex drives have industry-leading designs to meet global standards to provide a safer environment.

A variety of safety features enables you to design your motor control systems to satisfy the needs of your electrical safety programme. These safety features can help protect employees and eliminate unplanned outages and downtime:

  • ArcShield – To enhance the protection of personnel and equipment, we test our arc resistant designs—ArcShield to meet global arc resistant standards including IEEE C37.20.7
  • Our certifications provide Type 2B protection—to provide full perimeter personnel protection, even when the low-voltage control door is open for maintenance purposes
  • Integrated arc resistant medium voltage drive and starter line up provides arc ratings to 50kA
  • SecureConnect – This allows operators to disconnect the power from an individual 2100 CENTERLINE MCC plug-in unit without opening the enclosure door or entering the arc flash boundary to perform maintenance or troubleshooting. This can be done at the unit or remotely.
  • Control system integration—using Studio 5000 Logix Designer software or our IntelliCENTER Software for CENTERLINE MCCs – either user interface can be used for remote monitoring and troubleshooting to help workers identify issues before they result in unplanned downtime.
  • Other Safety Features of CENTERLINE MCCs with ArcShield – These include infrared windows for thermal inspection, high visibility yellow door for main, SafeZone™ Laser Scanner and a door-mounted voltage detector.
