This section provides overview, applications, and principles of control panels. Also, please take a look at the list of 117 control panel manufacturers and their company rankings.
A control panel is a box (board) in which electrical equipment and parts are integrated and mounted to control industrial production lines and machinery.
Control panels are generally manufactured in the form of a metal box with a door, and are coated with a baking or powder coating to prevent rust, corrosion, and salt damage.
Control panels are used to control industrial production lines and machinery. The purpose of a control panel differs from that of a distribution panel, which transforms high-voltage power, or a distribution board equipped with ground-fault breakers and safety breakers to provide electricity safely.
Control panels are fitted with electrical equipment and components that control industrial production lines and machinery and equipment, protecting the internal equipment from dust, dirt, heat, and humidity around the control panel.
Control panels are manufactured in the shape of a metal box and painted to protect the internal equipment from the surrounding environment.
Holes are drilled inside the control panel for mounting electrical equipment and components.
Electrical devices and components installed inside the control panel generally include circuit breakers, electromagnetic switches, indicator lights, electric meters, inverters, servo amplifiers, and other devices related to the control of machinery and equipment.
Control panels are equipped with fans and coolers to protect the electrical equipment and components installed inside the control panel from heat and to maintain an appropriate temperature inside the control panel.
The front of the control panel is generally equipped with indicator lights, meters, and switches to allow the user to check the operating status and operate the control panel.
Control panels, distribution boards, and power distribution boards are used in the same housing, but they are used for different purposes.
A distribution board is a device that step-down and distributes power supplied by an electric power company. Cubicles and the like fall under this category.
A distribution board is a device that further branches the power received from the distribution board and distributes it to each control panel. A box lined with circuit breakers in an ordinary home corresponds to a distribution board.
A control panel is a device that distributes the power received from the distribution board to industrial equipment such as motors. In many cases, the control components that turn industrial equipment on and off are also incorporated in the control panel.
