Motor Control Center with Embedded EtherNet/IP
MV Centerline motor control centers (MCCs) provide iinformation exchange between plant-floor devices and business-level systems to increase productivity and improve worker safety.
Adding EtherNet/IP to the Centerline line of medium voltage MCCs gives manufacturers access to production information throughout the enterprise and lets them take advantage of simplified device programming. The ability to access more detailed production data allows plant engineers to predict potential problems and help prevent equipment failures. This ultimately results in higher asset availability and reduced maintenance costs. Leveraging a single, standard network simplifies communication for the entire enterprise and provides users with the flexibility to control, configure and collect data from any point in the system. In addition, by taking advantage of the company's Premier Integration feature, users can configure and commission their MCC faster with the company's Software Studio 5000 engineering and design environment, helping to eliminate errors associated with redundant programming.
