Rockwell Automation’s EtherNet/IP motor control center features an integrated EtherNet/IP network, giving manufacturers access to production information throughout the enterprise.
This also allows plant engineers to predict potential problems and help prevent equipment failures – ultimately resulting in higher asset availability, improved productivity 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. Users can configure and commission their MCC faster with RSLogix 5000 software, helping to eliminate errors associated with redundant programming.
Knowing how a motor control center is performing from anywhere also saves time by minimizing the need for maintenance personnel to enter the motor control center. This saves time associated with suiting up with personal protective equipment and helps protect personnel from exposure to hazardous conditions.
