      Product Cross-Reference

      The Model 6 Motor Control Center with 18-Pulse Drive is a clean power solution designed specifically for high-horsepower applications within the Water Wasterwater Industry. This solution combines the robustness of an MCC with the harmonic mitigating benefits of 18-Pulse Drive to meet IEEE 519 harmonic guidelines of achieving over 95% harmonic cancellation. The 18-Pulse Model 6 MCC solution is UL 845 compliant up to 100 kA RMS short circuit rating and is seismically qualified.

      Combining adjustable speed drive and power quality solutions

      For municipal and industrial pumping applications, the Square D® brand PowerGard™ Series C 18-Pulse enclosed drive controller features the new Telemecanique® brand Altivar® 61 and 71 adjustable frequency drives/power converters. Schneider Electric’s experience and expertise in power distribution and power quality measurement are combined with solid state motor control. The result: A robust, packaged, adjustable speed drive with clean power solution.

      PowerGard™18-Pulse drives are ideal for installations specifying “clean power” low- harmonic content in compliance with IEEE 519 guidelines for harmonic mitigation. PowerGard™ 18-Pulse drives are UL508 listed and feature a heavy-duty industrial disconnect handle with lock-out/tag-out provisions.
