A device that can manipulate or measure the physical variables of a process including temperature, flow, pressure, or level is termed as an instrument. The instrument/control engineers are responsible for the designing, managing, and maintaining of control engineering systems through the best available equipment and means.
Controlling the electricity flow to a motor has several benefits, prominent ones being saving electricity and preventing the damage that may occur due to a large inrush of current. For the purpose, we have two devices or equipment viz. soft starter and VFD (Variable-frequency Drive). Knowing more about them will help you understand the differences, and which one to choose.

When it comes to the supply of electricity for your entire shop floor and each of the machines, the control panel can be said to be the heart of operations. Some control panels can have a general or poor design, which will not suit your unique operational requirements.
The PLC panels or the Programmable Logic Controller control panels provide for better energy efficiency and are used for the automation of applications in industrial and commercial sectors. There are available in both customized and standard forms and have a variety of designs and configurations to suit the simple and complex functions.

The electrical enclosures and electrical panels keep the components, circuits, wiring and other kinds of equipment and parts safe from environmental factors including temperature, humidity, and moisture. They house a range of components including microcontrollers, fiber optic devices, power supplies, switches, router, and other equipment. Moisture and overheating shorten the life of the equipment and may also be a cause of accidents and fire hazard. Therefore, the right built and quality of your electrical enclosures is crucial towards their reliability and suitability for a particular environment.
Electrical control panels are as useful and important in residences as they are in industries. In industries, the panels can control the major production systems and equipment including cranes, conveyors, and refrigeration units and also the environmental systems including lighting, pumps, and HVAC among others. The electrical panels have the circuit breakers, which prevent overloading in residential areas as well.

Industrial control panels (ICPs) improve the efficiency of workflows, enhance productivity and also provide for cost-effective operations. But to get the most out of your system and to ensure that your processes are safe and free from downtimes, you need to maintain and care for your ICP. Remember that the components and the panel are pricey equipment and you may not want to waste them because of negligence. Here are some tips that will help you make the most out of your industrial control panel.
The custom control panels are built according to the operational environment, settings and the aspirations of the client. They are made to order and purpose-built solutions that are individually engineered. They may also be a solution to complex control channel requirement in cases where two installations cannot be exactly alike. The panels may have varying complexity and include the push button and single-hole stations, as well as the large multibay control cabinets, panels, and enclosures.

Explosions and fire are a major safety concern in the industrial plants. A number of engineering designs, codes, standards, and regulations emphasize this aspect of industrial safety, because of the grave and dangerous aspects of it. The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) has a well-established system for classifying locations that are dangerous health hazards present in varying degrees at industries.
