WHAT ARE ELECTRICAL PANELS?
In manufacturing, electrical panels serve as vital components of electrical distribution systems. They are enclosures that house various electrical components, such as circuit breakers, fuses, switches, meters, and relays. These panels act as centralized control points for managing and distributing electrical power within a facility or production environment.
The electrical panel is typically installed in a designated area and connects to the main power supply. It receives electricity from the primary source and distributes it to different circuits throughout the manufacturing facility. These circuits power various equipment, machinery, lighting, and other electrical devices required for the manufacturing processes.
Electrical panels are designed to ensure safety and efficiency. They feature protective devices like circuit breakers and fuses, which help prevent overloads and short circuits, minimizing the risk of electrical fires and equipment damage. The panels also provide easy access to control and manage power distribution, allowing for quick response in case of emergencies or maintenance needs.
Manufacturing electrical panels are typically constructed to comply with relevant electrical codes and regulations. They are engineered to accommodate the specific power demands and electrical requirements of the manufacturing facility, providing a reliable and controlled power supply to support uninterrupted production processes.
Overall, electrical panels in manufacturing play a crucial role in maintaining electrical safety, controlling power distribution, and facilitating efficient operations within the manufacturing environment.
The advantages of building electrical panels in-house:
- Better quality controls.
- Flexibility to make changes (even last minute).
- Lower costs.
- Quicker turnaround.
- The advantage having panel builders actually knowing how aerosol equipment functions as opposed to “generic” panel builders.
