    Square D™ Low Voltage Motor Control Centers

    Model 6 Motor Control Center Design

    Design the best solution to meet your needs.

Unlimited Configurations

Meet customer needs and process requirements for your applications with unlimited ways to configure and order the Model 6 motor control center (MCC). Model 6 innovative features and configurations have been developed to protect equipment and improve human interaction and safety, adding value and peace of mind to your projects. With a wide array of components, the feature-rich Model 6 is the benchmark in safety and reliability.

Motor control centers (MCCs) were first used in the 1950s in auto manufacturing to control the many electric motors used in process lines. Now MCCs are used all over the world, across many applications, such as wastewater treatment and the oil and gas industry.

Model 6 and Power Distribution

The reduced footprint of the Model 6 allows you to use the MCC as a power distribution switchgear in applications where space constraint is critical.
