Courtesy: Concept SystemsConcept Systems Inc. announced a new product line that is directed at serving factories’ needs for flexible, reliable control centers named ControlCore. ControlCore is a customizable mobile enclosure that houses all of the electrical and electronic components that are typically incorporated in a factory work cell. 

The ControlCore control centers accept power directly from the utility source, and include all circuit breakers and power conditioners. Motor control centers mounted within the units contain all variable frequency drives (VFDs) and motor starters. Large circuits are provided for driving high current devices such as air compressors. The systems are also outfitted with rack-mounted PLCs and data servers as required by the application, and are network-enabled for connection to other factory systems.

For security-conscious applications, different access control options are available to restrict vendors’ access to their own equipment, if necessary, and different levels of shock and vibration protection and climate controls are available, making the ControlCore a good choice for use in harsh or dirty environments.

The enclosures can be outfitted for operation inside or outdoors, and for mobile use, the enclosures can be provided with trailer mounts. The highly secure, self-contained, premanufactured and tested nature of the ControlCore also makes the product well suited for installation in remote areas where technical skill may be limited.
