TOKYO, September 8, 2016 - Mitsubishi Electric Corporation (TOKYO: 6503) announced today the launch of its latest Low Voltage Motor Control Center, the Type-D version, which accommodates a high number of functional units and is specifically designed for deployment in many global markets, starting September 8. The company is targeting sales of two billion Japanese yen, or about US$ 20 million, in the first full year.

The Mitsubishi Low Voltage Motor Control Center Type-D's single-front design makes it particularly suitable for environments where double-front construction is not appropriate. These include increasingly popular container-type substation installations for motor-control and supervisory applications in industrial plants, power plants and water-treatment plants, particularly in South East Asia, the Middle East and South America.

Advantages of New Mitsubishi Low Voltage Motor Control Center Type-D

1)
Increased cubicle capacity leads to fewer cubicles
-Despite its single front, the new unit's compact 1000mm x 600mm x 2200mm design allows up to 40 units to be housed in a single cubicle (4 units x 10 levels per side in the smallest power feeder units versus 1 unit x 9 levels per side in the current design)
2)
Simplified operation and maintenance
-Components can be rearranged from the front side during cubicle installation, operation or maintenance
-In the case of withdrawable units, fully automatic connection and disconnection of a functioning unit's main and control circuits is possible
3)
Universal design helps eliminate human error
-Controls are highly visible thanks to conspicuous text and high-contrast colors
-ON/OFF status is easily recognized due to the molded case circuit breaker's two-colored handle
-Embedded LED lighting on the cubicle sides enables operational status to be easily recognized
