ABB launches MNS iS - the first integrated system for Low Voltage Motor Control Center applications

2007-02-14 - To date 19 patent applications have been posted for the motor control centre (MCC). In the global low voltage switchgear market, this is a major technology achievement.

ABB, the leading power and automation technology group is pleased to announce the introduction of MNS iS - the first integrated system for low-voltage MCC applications. The technology will be officially launched to the Australian market during seminars hosted by ABB in Queensland and WA during March and will feature guest speaker Gunnar Zank, Regional Support Manager for MNS iS in Asia-Pacific and Middle East.

MNS iS includes comprehensive motor control, monitoring, protection, and communication capabilities to higher-level control systems. The configurable control modules of MNS iS allow for ongoing modifications and enhancements, giving greater flexibility to engineers, system integrators and end-users. MNS iS is also uniquely safe and simple to operate.

"The entire ABB team is delighted that the motor control center MNS iS is currently being released to the Australian market," says Regina Roos, Sales Manager, Low Voltage Systems, Australia.

"We are committed to provide smarter solutions that help our customers be more successful," Regina says.

MNS iS is a single, integrated MCC system configurable for all possible customer specifications - from conventional up to sophisticated Intelligent Motor Control System requirements.

MNS iS makes modifications / enhancement of control and protection functions possible at any time and at any stage during the complete project life cycle. It provides much needed flexibility for engineers, system integrators and end users.

MNS iS secures customer investments as it provides step-up possibilities with future technology developments with the same system.

MNS iS enables flexible usage of spare parts as a result of the system standardisation. Very few standard motor starter variants are needed for a complete plant.

MNS iS is uniquely safe and simple to operate. Power modules and control devices are physically separated and situated in separate compartments. The installation of power cables is possible without adverse effect on control and communication equipment. On the other hand all installation jobs in the control compartment can be carried out without the danger of touching live power cables.
