Panduit Launches Motor Controlled Cabinet (MCC) Copper Cabling Bundle System to Support Ethernet Based Devices in Motor Control Centers for Holistic Network Connectivity
TINLEY PARK, Ill. — (May 4, 2018) —Panduit Corp. provides subject matter expertise and offerings to enable Motor Controlled Cabinet (MCC) Copper Cabling Bundle System upgrades. These upgrades are built within recognized industrial network architecture(s) and utilizing structured cabling concepts appropriately.
With two, 4-cable bundles from the DIN mount panel to centrally located switches, Panduit provides a cost-effective solution to prevent downtime and equipment damage for brownfield and greenfield ethernet deployments in MCCs. The Copper Cable Bundle System delivers a future-ready, easy to deploy solution to upgrade the physical network and support Ethernet based devices in motor control centers for holistic network connectivity. Implementing this retrofit solution allows legacy MCCs to communicate via Ethernet networks, enabling equipment and power monitoring as well as predictive maintenance capability for energy and downtime savings without added maintenance costs.
Michael Verbeek, Sr. Manager for the Industrial Network Infrastructure business at Panduit, explains: “Now that Internet of Things is growing faster than ever, industrial equipment needs to be connected in a robust and smarter way. High current and voltage found in an MCC generates noise that can affect the reliability of your network and life expectancy of your low voltage ethernet switches and devices. This fully tested and validated bundled cabling solution removes the consideration for noise and voltage by centrally locating the switch in an IZE, IDF, or MDC and enables a structured infrastructure deployment.”
