The Freedom 2100 incorporates the newest NEMA electromechanical starter in the industry along with the most complete, NEMA
rated package of distribution and control equipment.
Eaton Motor Control Centres are custom-made assemblies of conveniently grouped control equipment primarily used for
control of motors and for distribution of power. Motor Control Centres are designed for 3-phase, 230 volt applications up to
200 horsepower or 3-phase, 480 volt application up to 400 horsepower.
Features, Benefits and Functions Structure Design
Eaton Motor Control Centres are 20 inches (508 mm) wide and 90 inches (2286 mm) high with vertical compartments having
72 inches (1829 mm) of unit mounting space in 6-inch (152 mm) increments.
Structure depth is 16 inches (406 mm) or 21-inch (533 mm) deep front mounted only and 21-inch (533 mm) deep for back-to-back
mounted units. The unique framed design permits the highest flexibility in component and structure configuration.
All parts and wiring are front asccessible. Terminal blocks are side mounted in each unit. Vertical wireways separate from
control units provide safe and convenient access to wiring and conduits without de-energizing any equipment.
Modular, framed design permits structure arrangement to be tailored to exactly meet any control requirements with a minimum of
unusable space. Vertical compartments are incremented for maximum space utilization and unit interchangeability. A 6-inch (152
mm) Size 1 starter unit provides users the ability to solve demanding space requirements and still meet all NEMA and CSA
Design tested at the Eaton power laboratory to assure maximum protection for control equipment. Engineered to minimize
hazards to operating personnel.
Standard structures and units are provided with CSA label.
Options and Accessories
Control and Distribution Equipment Packaging
The Freedom 2100 provides the best packaged solutions for the control needs of today?s users. The Freedom 2100?s structural
characteristics allows the user to select a complete package of control and distribution equipment in a minimum amount of
space. The ability to package a wide range of solid-state products including SV9000 drives, the Intelligent Technology?s
Solid-State Reduced Voltage Starters and PLCs meets the most demanding user process needs. The option to provide high ampacity
molded case breakers gives the user the flexibility to minimize switchboard or switchgear structures and thereby saves
valuable space and reduces design costs. Other packaged products including automatic transfer switches and panelboards, again
reduce space requirements and save time and money on equipment and installation costs.

The Eaton Canadian MCC product line is headquartered in Airdrie, AB. Airdrie, the most progressive engineering in the
industry can custom design motor control for the most demanding applications. Most MCCs can be shipped 6 to 8 weeks after
receipt of a released order.
One of the most unique aspects of the Eaton MCC operation is the ability to provide customized product to meet
delivery requirements through a MCC satellite. There are eight regional satellites located throughout Canada serving key
geographic markets. Please contact the satellite in your area to discuss opportunities and MCC support for your specific
The Freedom 2100 have been qualified to meet the seismic requirements of both the Uniform Building Code and the California
Building Code for equipment operation after seismic activity. This equipment, along with the Eaton low and medium
voltage switchgear assemblies, medium voltage starter assemblies and low voltage switchboards which meet seismic requirements,
provide the user with a complete seismic qualified assemblies package. Please contact your Eaton sales engineer for
One of the most exciting new tools developed for the MCC product line is the Bid Manager program. Bid Manager is a PC-based
pricing program that is capable of providing complete bills of material, front views and prices for both Advantage and Freedom
2100 MCCs. This program can configure a Motor Control Centre to meet a multitude of specific applications and provide accurate
bills of material and front view drawings in a matter of moments. The program operates on a user friendly, Windows- based
format that offers the most extensive product selection found in the industry. A complete line of adjustable frequency drives
and reduced voltage solid-state control, along with insulated case breakers, high ampacity molded case breakers and automatic
transfer switches are featured in the program. Control and distribution product can be packaged in a multitude of variations.
