Motor Control Centers - Low Voltage
Spectra* Series 8000 Line

Spectra* Series 8000 Line

Motor control centers provide a convenient, centralized means of protecting and controlling all of a facility's motor loads. In many facilities today, these motor loads often are precision HVAC systems responsible for cooling sensitive electronic equipment - servers, routers, switches, pc's, etc. Any power outage or fault event could severely damage this equipment and ultimately bring all operations to a halt - resulting in huge financial losses.


Since 1940, GE Motor control centers have been designed and manufactured with demanding applications like this in mind. Built using Six Sigma quality guidelines, GE MCCs offer an enormous amount of application flexibility while adhering to the most stringent industry standards.


These rugged steel-enclosed motor control centers can be outfitted with an incredible number of electrical devices- including all of the following:

- Solid state reduced voltage starters

- AC adjustable speed drives

- Meters

- Programmable Logic Controllers

- Control Relays

- TVSS devices

- Lighting panelboards

- Distribution panelboards

- Distribution transformers

- GE Power Management Control Systems

- Equipment ground fault protection

- Spectra RMS circuit breakers


In addition to the reliability and flexibility found in GE MCCs, GE is prepared to meet the aggressive cycle time requirements that your critical power facility requires. GE's network of highly trained factory engineers will work with you from the start to custom design MCCs for your unique critical power application and ensure that the equipment is onsite when you need it. For your next critical power project, rely on GE's tremendous experience and dedication - let us be your total motor control center solution provider.
