Installation & Maintenance Instructions

Before Installing

  1. Check cabinet and parts for any potential shipping damage
  2. If any damage is observed, report immediately to the delivering carrier and file a freight claim. If possible take photographs as evidence of the damage
  3. For any repair or replacement, contact Applied Motor Controls’ home office
  4. Do not return panel or parts unless written authorization is provided


  1. Fasten cabinet to a solid mounting surface, and level the panel to allow for proper operation of its door
  2. When conduit enters through the top, a properly sized and sealed conduit hub must be used to prevent leakage into the cabinet interior
  3. Check supply power and confirm that it matches the panel and motor voltage
  5. Terminate power supply cable at line terminal of main disconnect. Measure line-to-line and line-to-ground voltage values
  6. Prior to connecting the motor cables, test the motor starter operation. Close the pan-el door and turn the power on, then turn the Hand/off/Auto to the “hand” mode. The motor starter should energize and close.
  7. If motor starter does not energize, check for power continuity, blown fuses, and check starter coil voltage. Call the factory for technical support if necessary
  8. Tighten line and load cables according to the given torque values to prevent over-heating
  9. Use 75°C copper cable only
  10. Follow motor manufacturer’s instructions for proper grounding of motor cables
  11. Operate disconnect handle mechanism on the door to insure that interlock mecha-nism operates properly and it prevents door from opening when the handle is in the ON position
  12. If an overload relay with adjustable trip point has been provided, set the trip point to match the Full Load Amps shown on the motor data nameplate


  1. RISK OF ELECTRICAL SHOCK – More than one disconnect may be required to de-energized the equipment before servicing
  2. Inspect panel periodically to insure that all moving parts operate freely
  3. Interior should be kept clean. Excess dust, insects, debris, and foreign materials must be removed routinely
  4. Inspect magnetic contactor contact points for wear at least once every six months. Worn contact points must be replaced. Contact points can be cleaned with an appro-priate cleaner, but must never be filed
  5. Visually inspect all cable terminations. Discoloring of any terminal or wire indicates a loose connection

Replacement Parts

  1. When replacement of any part is necessary, the replacement part must be of the same electrical ratings and characteristics
