Evolution Series E9000

The Evolution Series E9000 Motor Control Center provides a safe, flexible and centralized means to protect and control motors. Since 1948, ABB has driven the development of motor control centers, from the first plug-in combination starter to the first fully segregated units to contain fault damage.


The Evolution Series E9000 introduced the first 600A plug-in units and the first snap-in low voltage vertical barriers.


Evolution's 850A Vertical Bus, Snap-In Shelves, Plug-In Feeders to 600A, and Plug-In Starters to Size 5 provide customers with more flexibility to move buckets around and add them in the future.


These evolutionary advances extend to versatility in application - from the most complex auxiliary drive systems to the most basic control of fan or pump motors. They also embrace the scope and caliber of components and systems required to satisfy those applications, from the latest in solid-state starters and drives to world-class programmable logic control to a wide variety of proven control and distribution devices.


Enhanced simplicity and safety along with reduced size all make the Evolution Series E9000 your natural choice in motor control centers.

Components and Accessories


NEMA Motor Starter and Protection:  At the core of the Evolution Series E9000 are 300-Line motor starters – non-reversing, reversing, two speed and combination forms in NEMA sizes 1-6.


Compact NEMA Motor Starter:  ABB offers NEMA-rated compact starters with NEMA C2000 contactors to address the industry demand for a smaller unit footprint.


Solid State Reduced-Voltage Starters:  ASTAT starters deliver smooth stepless motor acceleration or deceleration by gradually increasing voltage from a preset level to full voltage over a selected time period.


Programmable Logic Control:  Evolution E9000 motor control centers take the next step in supporting automation control with the family of ABB Intelligent Platforms programmable logic controllers.


Pilot Devices:  CR104P and C2000 pilot devices which come in every conceivable form  deliver a high-class appearance and reliable operation.


Circuit Protection: The scope of circuit protection offered in Evolution Series E9000 motor control centers is broad enough to meet every need. Among the Spectra RMS motor circuit protectors, heavy-duty fusible disconnects, high pressure contact switches and the rugged and reliable PowerBreak II insulated case breakers, you'll find the specific protection your system requires.


microEntelliGuard* Trip Unit: SG600 and SK1200 are optionally available with the, microEntelliGuard* trip unit, which offers expanded functionality in the same space-saving size of standard Spectra RMS breakers.


EntelliGuard TU Trip Unit is standard in Powerbreak II breakers and offers optimum circuit protection and system reliability simultaneously, with little or no compromise to either of these critical functions. With its optional Reduced  Energy Let-Through Setting (RELT), the system protects at HRC1 or 2 for available fault currents as high as 100kA.


Integrated Tranquell* HE & ME Surge Protective Device (SPD): SPD components ensure the smoothing of spikes and inherent noise in utility/generator power flowing through your control center.


Adjustable Frequency Drives:

AF-600 FP:  AC drives are ideal for variable torque loads such as fans, pumps and compressors. Commands from the keypad or facility management system - along with pre-loaded motor parameters - make for quick and easy installation.


AF-650 GP:  These drives offer flexibility across a range of constant torque applications. They employ process control systems that make any task simple and profitable, and they can be configured to operate in a flux vector control mode.Multilin MM200 and MM300 Motor


Management Relays:  The MM200 and MM300 provide the latest technology in motor protection and control found in high-end protection relays.


And Much More:  Evolution Series E9000 motor control centers are available with a variety of other products and equipment including: Zenith Automatic Transfer Switches, Operator and Metering Panels, Relay Panels, Lighting and Distribution Panelboards, Distribution Transformers, and Power Factor Correction Capacitors.


Features and Benefits

  • Evolution's Minimum 65KAIC Bus Bracing Standard:  Provides customers with the ability to expand as their system requirements grow.


  • Seismic Rating: Certified to IBC-2006 3D shake table testing and qualified to the seismic requirements of IEEE-693-2005.


  • Plug-In Starters to Size 5: Customers can now plug Starters up to Size 5, allowing easy installation and removal. In addition, Size 5 starters have been reduced to 36" high, so two can now fit in a single MCC section


  • Plug-In Feeder Circuit Breakers Now up to 600A:  Largest selection of plug-in feeders in the Industry provides customers increased flexibility to quickly move buckets.


  • Drives Rated to 100 KAIC:  Drives are rated to 100KAIC without fuses, saving customers footprint and additional expense.


  • Multilin MM200 and MM300 MotorManagement Relays: The newest options for the Evolution Series E9000 MCC are the Multilin MM200 and MM300 protection relays. They provide the latest technology in motor protection and control found in high-end protection relays. The features are suitable for process applications requiring varying levels of diagnostics and control; for critical applications requiring remote monitoring; and for high-speed control on a network separate from data acquisition.


  • Integrated Tranquell* HE & ME Surge Protective Device (SPD):  SPD components ensure the smoothing of spikes and inherent noise in utility/generator power flowing through your motor control center.


  • Snap-In Shelving:  No bracket screws required for shelving; snap-in shelves allow buckets to be easily moved


  • Special Paint Options:  ABB can provide a variety of paint options to meet your industrial needs.
