Switch Rack Assemblies

Switch rack assemblies are used:

  • To provide a complete motor control center in one integrated package
  • In damp or corrosive locations such as sewage treatment plants and marine installations
  • In areas made hazardous due to the presence of flammable vapors or gases, such as refineries, chemical and petrochemical plants, gas gathering plants, pipeline compressor stations and drilling rigs
Rack Frame Material Structural steel or aluminum channel members, bolted and welded
Standard Finish Hot dip galvanized steel or natural aluminum


  • Complete factory assembled and wired switch racks
  • Pre-drilled bus boxes allow for quick and easy changing or adding of components
  • Complete assembly covered under one order, eliminates engineering costs, additional costs of placing separate orders with several vendors for various components, and assembly and scheduling problems at job site
  • Wiring is simple; after switch rack is in place, feeders are connected to the main bus and connections made from starters motors; no other field wiring is necessary
  • Maintenance time and costs are reduced by having controls grouped; work is performed in one location instead of moving from one control to another in various locations
  • Major components are standard EBM, EPC, NMC, NMG, NCB, FLB, D2PB, EXD, D2D, EPL, and D2L enclosures featuring ready access to starters and breakers for inspection and maintenance
  • Custom-built racks to meet your exact requirements are an Eaton specialty; complete quotations will be supplied for any job, large or small (38' length max.)
