Rockwell Automation launched the FLEXLINE 3500, a new low voltage motor control center (MCC) for IEC markets globally, which can be seen at the Hannover Messe 2024 trade fair in Germany.

Motor Control Center

With this motor control center, manufacturers can better leverage production data and increase uptime and productivity through a portfolio of smart products. By integrating with smart motor control devices, the FLEXLINE 3500 MCC can deliver real-time operation and diagnostic data for critical equipment.

The modular motor control center design is customizable to help meet low-voltage motor control applications and factory footprints while the technology is engineered for a range of industries, from food and beverage to oil and gas. And when FLEXLINE 3500 motor control centers are integrated with smart variable frequency drives, manufacturers can reduce power consumption.

Additionally, the motor control center is engineered to integrate motor control and power distribution into one centralized package, meeting IEC 61439-1&2 standards for global users. The smart devices within FLEXLINE motor control centers help to deliver benefits, including:

  • Reduced unplanned downtime with alarms and advanced diagnostic information

  • Reduced maintenance and energy costs

  • Increased production throughput

  • Improved plant and personnel safety

  • Reduced engineering and commissioning costs

  • Support for sustainability and environmental footprint due to less cables needed.

The specifications of the new FLEXLINE 3500 MCC matches a wide range of industrial applications and manufacturing needs. For the complete list of specifications and detailed product information, visit

Craig Resnick, ARC Advisory Group, commented, “Incorporating intelligence into manufacturing is a major shift we are seeing manufacturers deploy strategically. And with the introduction of the FLEXLINE 3500 motor control center, Rockwell Automation brings greater insights to plant operators. By enabling more data-driven decision making through smart motor control technology, manufacturers can improve profitability, productivity and operational efficiency."
