Control panels are found in “all” manufacturing process applications, but a few examples would be:
Control components are used extensively in industrial equipment and within control cabinet circuits. They are used for processes involving switching, starting, protecting, detecting, monitoring, communicating, and other electro-mechanical functions. Dynamic Measurement and Control provides rugged products for high end industrial applications. Our electrical components are specified when you need the highest grade devices for Precision, Accuracy, and Continuous use.
The enclosure is a metal or plastic box which varies in size and is typically made of aluminum, stainless steel or polycarbonate.
Back Panels, Back Plates or Sub-Panels for enclosures are used to install the electronics to the walls of the cabinet. The panel is used so you don't have to drill through the enclosure and compromise the integrity of the seal or NEMA rating.
Designed to attach and secure the end of an electric cable and the device it's connected to
MCCB's are UL 489-approved circuit breakers whose current-carrying parts, mechanisms and trip devices are all completely contained within a molded case of insulating material.
Transformers transfer electric power from the primary circuit to the secondary circuit
Surge arresters offer electrical protection for all devices downstream PLC, the power supplies, the step-down transformer, variable-frequency drives, and the input/output devices
Circuit Breakers protect an electrical circuit from becoming damaged by detecting when there is excess electrical current by breaking the circuit to stop the flow of electricity.
Industrial microprocessor-based controller with programmable memory used to store program instructions and various functions.
Relays are used to control the power along with switching the smaller current values in a control circuit.
Disconnect switches rapidly disconnect circuits from power supplies in the event of an emergency
A Contactor is used for switching an electrical circuit on or off
A motor starter provides defense by first controlling the electrical output of your device or equipment at its initial point of operation.
Motor drivers acts as an interface between the motors and the control circuits
A terminal block is a modular, insulated block that secures two or more wires together.
Fuses break the circuit in case of faulty conditions so as to protect the power system equipment and auxiliaries
Converts one type of electrical or mechanical signal (input-signal) into another (output-signal)
Enclosure thermal management devices are used to maintain optimum conditions inside enclosures
Want to know the most important properties and standards? Unsure of which products from our range are suitable for your industry?
Electrical systems and components run at a very high rate and are exposed to extreme conditions. Keeping your manufacturing process up and running or your machine "on" is of the utmost importance. Electrical systems require regular maintenance and attention so you need to be aware of how things work together. A lot of companies use electrical components that are not thoughtfully implemented or of low quality.
If you have questions about designing control panels, industrial equipment or just want to know the most important industrial control components considerations before you start designing, please reach out. We have also prepared some guides that examine the most common control panel types, their roles in the manufacturing process, and the more important electrical components you should be thinking about while still in the design phase of your panel.
