An actual Intelligent Motor Control Center will be at the seminar for viewing which will include the latest in intelligent motor control devices, such as AC Drives, soft starters and electronic overload relays. The Intelligent Motor Control Center also includes “IntelliCENTER” software which offers the ultimate window into the Intelligent Motor Control Center. The IntelliCENTER software provides both real-time diagnostics and Motor Control Center (MCC) documentation at the user’s fingertips, to maximize MCC and related equipment performance. The software’s flexibility allows monitoring of the MCC from anywhere within a facility over DeviceNet, ControlNet or Ethernet. This means that IntelliCENTER screens can easily be viewed within software packages that have ActiveX containers, e.g. Human Machine Interface (HMI) packages such as RSView. HMI programmers can quickly and easily incorporate several of the IntelliCENTER Screens into their application.
Utilization of these concepts will enable customers to:

  • Reduce Downtime
  • Increase Operational Efficiency
  • Reduce Startup Time on New Installation
  • Increase Personnel Safety
  • Incorporate Remote Monitoring
