E-Houses and Electric Motor Control Centers: Enhancing Safety and Reliability in Industrial Operations

In the fast-paced world of industrial operations, safety and reliability are paramount. One solution that is increasingly being adopted to meet these needs is the use of E-Houses and Electric Motor Control Centers (MCCs). But how exactly do these modular facilities enhance safety and reliability? Let’s delve into the world of E-Houses and MCCs, with a particular focus on the solutions offered by Northland Industrial Specialties.

Understanding E-Houses and MCCs

E-Houses, also known as electrical houses, are pre-engineered, modular buildings that house electrical switchgear, motor control centers, and other critical electrical equipment. They are built off-site in a controlled environment, transported to the final location, and then integrated into the existing operations.

Electric Motor Control Centers, on the other hand, are assemblies of one or more enclosed sections having a common power bus and principally containing motor control units. They centralize the control of motors and provide a convenient place for their connection.

Enhancing Safety with E-Houses and MCCs

One of the key benefits of E-Houses and MCCs is the enhanced safety they provide. By housing electrical equipment in a controlled, enclosed environment, they protect both the equipment and the personnel from potential hazards.

Northland Industrial Specialties’ E-Houses and MCCs are built to the current NEC – NFPA70 Code for non-hazardous location classification. This means they meet stringent safety standards, providing additional protection for your operations.

Moreover, these modular facilities shield expensive control panel equipment from theft or vandalism and from the deteriorating effects of the weather. They also provide a shelter for operators and maintenance personnel, further enhancing safety.

Boosting Reliability with E-Houses and MCCs

In addition to safety, E-Houses and MCCs also boost the reliability of industrial operations. They offer a controlled environment for your electrical systems, reducing the risk of system failures due to external factors.

Furthermore, Northland’s E-Houses and MCCs are customizable and can be equipped with multiple control systems, including Variable Frequency Drives (VFDs), harmonic filters, and control systems for various electronic devices. All systems are monitored and controlled through a programmable PLC (Programmable Logic Controller) with a touch screen HMI (Human-Machine Interface). This level of control and customization ensures that the E-House or MCC can be tailored to meet the specific needs of your operations, further enhancing reliability.


In the world of industrial operations, where safety and reliability can never be compromised, E-Houses and Electric Motor Control Centers offer a compelling solution. By providing a safe, controlled environment for your electrical systems, they can significantly enhance the safety and reliability of your operations.
