Our motor control centers are supplied to all industries - not just concrete. We have the capability to design and build any type of control system, very small to very large and we can supply startup engineers at the job site to ensure everything works out as planned. Scale-Tron is a UL and cUL certified Panel Shop. We specialize in fuseless designs; the motor control panels do not usually require fuses, even on the incoming power line. All motor starters are protected by individual circuit protection modules which trip on an overload and are easily reset. Any trip results in a named alarm on BatchTron's touch screen, allowing fast diagnosis and correction . . . Read more

6-wire motor connection reduces cost

Large motors can have the soft-starter wired between the three motor winding connections (“inside the delta”) to substantially reduce cost while retaining all the benefits of the soft starter.  This is useful if the motor control centers can be placed near the motors, where the main disconnect switch also becomes the motor safety isolation switch.  It also eliminates the cost of the isolation switch, giving a further saving.  For 2-motor mixers such as the Ocmix RG twin-shaft and similar, when the MCC must be positioned away from the mixer, conventional 3-wire connection should be used, but a 6-pole isolation switch is required.  We can provide very competitive pricing on this special switch, to avoid having to lock-out two three-phase switches when working on the mixer.
