GE 8000 Series MCC Retrofit, Reconditioning Service
General Electric 8000 Line Motor Control Centers get a Second Life Through Retrofitting, Reconditioning.
The GE 8000 Line MCC is one of the most commonly found General Electric low voltage motor control centers in operation in the U.S. today and is easily distinguishable by its signature rounded red handle operators. GE 8000 Low Voltage Motor Control Centers typically have a very long lifespan. The MCC structures and internal buswork almost always outlive the life of the individual MCC buckets, which are prone to breakdowns and obsolescence. So why replace the entire motor control center when problems start occurring?MCC bucket services and options keep your General Electric 8000 Line MCC operating for years.
Direct Replacement GE 8000 MCC Buckets
Class 1 Reconditioned direct replacement MCC Buckets are readily available for the General Electric 8000 Line Motor Control Center. Purchasing a direct replacement MCC Bucket minimizes downtime and ensures that the original footprint of the MCC remains unchanged. If you have a limited maintenance budget and want to upgrade your MCC over a long period of time, direct replacements are a great option.
Retrofit GE 8000 MCC Buckets
If you prefer to have your GE 8000 MCC Buckets upgraded with the latest technology and parts, then a complete retrofit of the MCC Bucket is the way to go! A good practice is to update your GE 8000 MCC buckets with Soft Starters and Drives (VFD’s) to help better control your processes and lower your energy costs. At minimum, it is a good idea to upgrade your GE 8000 MCC buckets with solid state overload protection that includes phase loss and phase imbalance to better protect your motors and save on those costly motor rebuilds and repairs.
Upgrade to Intelligent Motor Control
If you have ever wished your older GE 8000 MCC had monitoring and event data gathering capabilities, it’s now possible to upgrade your GE 8000 MCC buckets to intelligent motor control and connect them to industrial networks, such as DeveiceNet, Profinet, or Ethernet/IP etc. Just because you have an older MCC, doesn’t mean you have to settle for old technology. Any General Electric 8000 Line MCC can be made ready to meet the demands of the modern facility.
For example: Allen Bradley EC1 Series overload relays can be coupled to existing General Electric contactors giving them the ability to be controlled and monitored over a DeviceNet network.
