Motor Control Panels

Selectric Motor Control PanelThis section describes Selectric’s standard motor control packages. These panels are designed to start, operate and control a single motor for use in an agricultural or industrial application. All of the standard control panels are UL listed and contain IEC or NEMA rated components.





New Utility Transformers allow higher available Fault Currents. When advised, we can provide controls with proper interrupting ratings. Short Circuits may cause welding, which is not considered a failure of the Contactor. (see UL508, Para 53)



Full Starting Voltage Panels

Full starting voltage panels are motor control panels that use full rated voltage to start and maintain operation of the motor. These controls are suitable for applications in which the electrical service supplying the motor is sufficient in size to accommodate the starting current of the motor. Panel types under this category are: Magnetic Starters, Across the Line Combination Starters (circuit breaker type), and Across the Line Combination Starters (fusible type).

Reduced Starting Voltage Panels

Reduced starting voltage panels utilize various methods to reduce the magnitude of the current required to start a motor. These controls are used in applications where the electrical service supplying the motor is not sufficient in size to start the motor without a significant voltage “sag”, but the service is adequate to maintain a running motor. Panel types under this category are: Partwind (circuit breaker or fusible types), Autotransformer (combination or non-combination types), Star-Delta, and Solid State.

Variable Speed Motor Panels

Variable speed controls are used in applications where the speed of a motor must be continuously controlled. Many processes require this kind of flexibility. Variable speed controllers offer an additional advantage in that they can also reduce the starting current of a motor over that of an Across the Line panel.

Enclosure Dimensions

The dimensions listed are approximate. Certain conditions and/or options preclude the use of a specific enclosure for a given job. Underlined lettering indicates the manufacturer’s nominal dimensions for a given enclosure.

Pivot Disconnect Panel

Pivot Disconnect Panel

Center pivot disconnects are used to control the operation of a center pivot sprinkler system from a location on the field’s edge. This configuration allows the irrigator to control the pivot without having to make a trip to the center of the field.

Simplex Control Panels

A simplex level control panel is the right choice for non-critical level control where a single pump or motor is utilized to drain or fill a process. In a “two float” configuration, the motor starts when one remote contact, a float switch for example, closes and the motor stops when the other remote contact opens. A “three float” configuration provides the same operating sequence, but a third remote contact is used as a high level or a low level alarm.

Outside of Duplex Control Panel

Duplex Control Panels

In a duplex control panel, two motors are used to drain or fill the process adding a level of reliability and easier maintenance. Duplex panels can be configured in a two, three or four “float” configuration. With two remote contacts (floats), only one motor runs at any given time (there is no “lag” operation). With three remote contacts, the motors are operated in a lead-lag mode. With four remote contacts, the motors are in lead-lag mode with an alarm output.

Fused Disconnect Switch

Fused disconnect switches are UL listed and suitable for use as service entrance equipment.

Power Factor Correction Capacitors

Capacitors are sized in accordance with industry standards but are listed in horsepower for ease of selection. Units will correct standard 3-Phase 3600 RPM and 1800 RPM motors to approximately 95% power factor. To correct to approximately 97% power factor, use the next sized larger unit. For 1200 RPM motors, use the next larger panel size. These and all Selectric products should only be installed by qualified personnel in accordance with applicable electrical codes.
