Arc-Resistant MCCs Comply with C37.20.7

Sept. 1, 2011
The re-engineered family of tiastar motor control centers, appropriate to the needs of vertical markets such as water and wastewater, oil and gas, and general process industries, includes what is said to be the first arc-resistant MCC compliant to ANSI/IEEE C37.20.7.

Criteria for containing and redirecting arc flash incident energy has been successfully witness tested in the presence of Underwriters Laboratories (UL) representatives. High Density designs meeting UL and NEMA standards, while reducing unit size for NEMA 1 through starters, allow for up to a 10 percent weight reduction and a 25 percent smaller footprint. Separately, a new SmartStart option features plug-and-play functionality, which reduces commissioning time with pre-programmed and pre-configured data. Line includes base, HD, H2O and Smart models. H20 models, designed for water / wastewater industries, offers integrated drives and protects assets by tracking deterioration in pumps and motors.
