MCC buckets, like any other piece of electronic equipment, sometimes have to be replaced. Motor control centers (MCCs) aren't invincible. They are susceptible to normal wear and tear just like anything else. Certainly, spending money on repairing MCC buckets is not how you planned on using your spare company cash this year. However, sometimes the chips just fall that way.

MCC buckets optimize space by placing motor controls and branch-circuit protection in one easily accessed area. Installing wiring is made much easier this way. But it is not uncommon for companies to place hot wiring in the housing of MCC buckets. This is a misuse of the device, and can lead to malfunction.

Perhaps a routine inspection of equipment turned up the problem. That is common enough. Oftentimes, an anomaly in the electrical system is identified and a cold phase in an MCC bucket is the main suspect. A fuse is replaced, but that doesn't solve the problem. The MCC bucket needs to be scrapped.

Buying MCC Buckets

Finding replacement MCC buckets isn't difficult. You've got the Internet to assist you. In the past, you'd probably rely upon your local electronics supplier. If the supplier was shady, you never would have known about it. You didn't get to compare prices or consult other experts.

The Internet has changed that. Today, with a few clicks of the mouse, you can find all the information about MCC buckets that you'd ever be able to digest. Unscrupulous retailers trying to cash in on ignorant customers are out of luck. The Internet has made informed customers out of all of us.
