Key Components of Your Industrial Control Panel Identified and Explained

September 27, 2021

Topic: automation industrial control panels control panels industrial controls

Industrial Control Panels come in different shapes and sizes, and require specialized individual handling. The machines operate at 600V or less, and consist of power as well as control circuits. Their purpose is to control the factory equipment and provide a single collective base of operations for the engineer to control the manufacturing process. ICPs are available as either open or closed type panels depending upon use.


Industrial Control Panel Contactors: ABB vs. Allen-Bradley

Industrial electrical control panels fall under two categories:

1. Units that contain components that control major industrial production systems, such as presses, cranes, conveyors and refrigeration units

2. Units that contain components that control necessary nearby environmental systems, such as lighting, HVAC and pumps

When power or control components, such as motor controllers, wires, relays and switches, fail to work properly, production immediately slows or screeches to a halt resulting in lost revenues and high on-site emergency repair call costs. For these reasons, it’s critical that you hire a trained technical professional to perform a preventative inspection and repair work if any of the following conditions currently exist in your factory:


Industrial Control Panel Contactors: ABB vs. Eaton

When choosing the contactors for your control panel, there are plenty of reliable names on the market offering products. However, not all of the parts offer the same benefits due to design variations and small improvements that make a big difference in the long run. Figure out whether ABB vs. Eaton contactors are a better choice for your industrial motor control hardware needs.


Protection Options for Your Industrial Control Panels

October 27, 2016

Topic: control panels industrial controls

In the field or the factory, your industrial control panels need both physical and electrical protection. Environmental factors can affect the reliability of components inside, while surges, lightning, current overloads and direct short circuits can cause a lot more damage if there's no protective equipment installed. Ideally these features will be designed into the panels in consultation with your electric services provider, but they can also be retrofitted to provide protection for your equipment going forward.
