Choose the right combination motor controller type
Featured Product from ABB Electrification Products
Of all the pieces of equipment in a production or process facility, the electric motor is the most fundamental and is probably the most critical. Nothing gets made or moved without a motor. So, it’s only logical that plant operations personnel must maintain the safety of those motors. Panel builders provide that protection via a number of protection and control systems.
Selecting the optimum system requires consideration of the basic motor operating parameters including horsepower rating; power characteristics such as voltage and available short circuit current; vibration, torque, and other mechanical limits; and others. Within those parameters, panel builders must also choose the desired motor protection scheme.
