Control Panel Builder
Control Panel Builder
Searching for the right control system integrator can help you guide the project to success and maximise the ROI from an automation project.
Control panel builder needs to be aware of new control system technologies. Additionally, technologies are changing rapidly and manufacturing automation projects are becoming a challenge due to the complexity, scope and human intervention.
However, when building a control system need to consider several components from different suppliers. For example the software, safety, electrical elements just to mention some of them. Also, the project manager must ensure that all these components can communicate with each other without any setback. Therefore, industrial engineering knowledge is crucial to deliver a top-performing integrated system and to avoid future breakdown.
Minimise Control Systems breakdown
Here are five steps to minimise breakdown in manufacturing process:
- Conducting periodically audit to all automated equipment.
- Scheduling walk-throughs supervision throughout the manufacturing process.
- Keep training the operator with new technologies.
- Software or human machine interface (HMI) updates
- Upgrade the control system components and request the functional specification document
Phoenix produce and test all our custom-built industrial control panels in our premises in Liverpool and we build our control panel components with a range of high-quality and well-known electrical brands.
We have experience working with a very high-demand sectors, for example: Pharmaceuticals industry, Waste & water treatment plant, Environmental, Automotive, Marine, Aerospace; Energy and Transport to mention some of them.
Industrial Control Panel Safety Components
Control panels use electrical panel elements that control the flow of power and prevent damage on the systems. Some of these electrical control panel elements are:
Fused Disconnects – Fused are always know as a safety electric components and it help to break the flow of electricity. In addition, the metal wire inside the fuse literally burn up on the short circuit.
Circuit Breakers – Breakers is another electric element that can detect short circuit and overload conditions and turn itself Off when it is detected.
Motor Starters – A Starter is a device that controls the use of electrical power to equipment, usually a motor. Likewise, they can also stop and protect the power. In addition, starters includes a contactor and overload protection to control the motor.
Soft Starters – They protects AC electric motors from damage caused by sudden motor voltage up or down. Also, they turn the motor on and off more smoothly to eliminate electrical surges and mechanical shock.
Variable Frequency Drives – Controls the motor speed at all time, usually AC motor speed and torque. Hence, they are used in applications ranging from small appliances to large compressors.
Above all, Phoenix build industrial control panel from our manufacturing premises in Liverpool. In addition, we specialise in designing and manufacturing from simple industrial panels to complete integrated control panels systems.
Likewise, we can modify existing control panel or remove and replace existing panel to add a new design. In fact, we will update all drawings/schematics to reflect all changes.
