What It is and Why You Need One | Industrial Control Panels
Industrial equipment and machines require defined functions and orderly control to achieve their various process goals. Electrical control panels carry out these functions within manufacturing equipment. An understanding of what they are highlights their critical importance to industry.
ELECTRICAL CONTROL PANELS: ALL YOU NEED TO KNOW
In its simplest terms, an electrical control panel is a combination of electrical devices which use electrical power to control the various mechanical functions of industrial equipment or machinery. An electrical control panel includes two main categories: panel structure and electrical components.
PANEL STRUCTURE OF ELECTRICAL CONTROL PANELS
The structure of an electrical control panel is a combination of an enclosure and a back panel.
The enclosure is a metal box which varies in size and is typically made of Mild Steel. The number of doors (usually one or two) needed on the enclosure determines its size in most industrial applications. The enclosure will come with a UL safety rating an IP rating, and NEMA classification. These listings help us to determine properties such as:
A back panel is a metal sheet mounted inside the enclosure that provides structural support for DIN rail mounting and wiring ducts. DIN metal rails feature standardized dimensions and provide a mounting structure for electrical devices. Wiring ducts provide for the routing and organization of wires while also assisting in the control of electrical noise between devices inside the box.
