The 4 Key Aspects Of The Design Of An Industrial Control Panel

It is necessary to be aware of the basic and essential elements/aspects while choosing an electrical control panel or cabinet. The electrical panels are exposed to certain environmental variables and need to store adequate components (in a proper way) for controlling the process machinery and the electricity consuming systems. Therefore, apart from the build quality, there may be many other aspects to consider when looking for an efficient and appropriate control panel design. Below are four of the critical and key aspects of the design of an industrial control panel, which should be evaluated carefully to ensure that a safe, cost-effective, and reliable option has been deployed to control electrical supply in a facility.

Understanding The Basics Of Industrial Control Panels

The NEC or National Electric Code defines industrial control panels as an assembly consisting of two or more components forming power-circuits. It may also be any other combination of control and power circuit components. The panels often come in pre-assembled forms, and the factory-fit and wired assemblies include different and multiple control equipments like the motor controllers, switches, relays, and other components. One important aspect to note here is that an industrial panel listed in UL (Underwriters Laboratory) will not have an externally connected load.

VFD Retrofit Options and Benefits for Units and Plants

VFDs or variable frequency drives are essential nowadays in industrial environments for their cost efficiency and better performance. However, firms need to spend the money only after proper analysis. A retrofit application can also be considered when the VFD is being upgraded, replaced, and in other instances. The new drives can also be installed by using the same enclosures and wirings.

The Benefits and Features Of Purged Panels

Electrical equipment can be used and safely placed in the electrical enclosure, even in hazardous locations, through purge and pressurization. The purge electrical control panels, or the pressurized enclosures, are built to maintain the right pressure within their interiors, which ultimately does not allow the outside gases to penetrate the insides of the enclosure and panel.

Points to Keep in Mind When Designing Enclosures that Protect Against Water and Debris

When it comes to the matter of designing electrical enclosures intended to protect against debris and water, considering NEMA or IP standards is essential. Before initiating the design, careful consideration should be made as to what is the purpose of designing. As per the guidelines set by the control panel manufacturer, this will help in creating a better functional enclosure.
