Rockwell Automation launched a new motor control center (MCC) for industrial automation at this year’s Hannover Messe, taking place this week in Hanover, Germany. 

The Flexline 3500 MCC is customizable and can be integrated with smart devices and equipment across a factory floor, collecting production and diagnostic data and enabling floor managers to improve operational efficiency.

Designed as a centralized platform to control and manage different industrial assets, Rockwell said the MCC offers several benefits, including reducing unplanned downtime and energy costs and improving sustainability.

“Our connected technology delivers real-time operation data, letting manufacturers see and solve downtime problems before they occur as well as increasing motor control energy efficiency and reducing power consumption across operations,” said Diego Wilches, Rockwell Automation’s global product manager.

“Hannover is the ideal venue to launch this new offering."

According to Rockwell, the Flexline 3500 MCC has applications in industries ranging from food and beverage to oil and gas.

"Incorporating intelligence into manufacturing is a major shift we are seeing manufacturers deploy strategically,” said Craig Resnick, vice president of consulting, ARC Advisory Group. “With the introduction of the Flexline 3500 motor control center, Rockwell Automation brings greater insights to plant operators.
