Spike Electric isn’t just about a prolonged experience in the industrial motor control field. We make sure that every minute detail of the design and development of control panels are successfully met. That is what has established us as a reliable partner for control panels. Spike Electric ensures that every step in the design and fabrication process of the control panel is monitored efficiently and every preference of clients is met way beyond their expectations.

Basic Features Of A Good Control Panel

An incredible layout is what decides the efficiency of a control panel. The layout acts like a foundation that allows users or industrial plants to service, maintain, and update the system as per changing requirements and preferences. If the foundation or layout is not up to the mark, then the control panel will be completely devoid of important features, efficient functionality, and reliability- factors that are much desired by industrial processes and operations.

Another factor that limits the efficiency of a control panel is poor panel sizing. Preferably, a control panel should consist of ample space for each respective component to ease expansion and the amount of heat dissipation. Why is this important? Ample space for components protects the systems from undue damage. Additionally, it will also allow users to eliminate components that are worn out and replace them with new ones that fit the new requirements.

Another important feature of a good control panel is that the components should be assigned to the right places. Component groups must be created and logically positioned in the proper place. When the positioning is logical, it will be simpler and easier to make sure that the distribution of power is accurately made from various devices like breakers, fuses, and terminals. This will help each respective component to function flawlessly and efficiently.

Labelling too should be done precisely. Why? Muddled, jumbled, and obscure, labels will make servicing and maintenance tasks a nightmare. Hence, to avoid undue confusion, professionals at Spike Electric ensure that labelling is done precisely in easily visible locations. While labelling, our expert professionals also take care of the language and hence avoid the critical error which may become a costly mistake during servicing.

Every control panel needs to comply with the specifications outlined by the UL regulation. Spike Electric ensures that every control panel that is provided is in adherence to all the strict regulations of UL. This is an added advantage because our control panels will be always updated as per the changing specification and requirements of industry regulations and certifications.

Another important feature that many people overlook in the case of control panels is the wireway. Wireway means the positioning of the wires within the control panel. These wires should be placed neatly and in an organized manner. Like we all know, the tidier, the simpler. Neat positioning and organizing of wire bundles help us to easily identify the path leading to them and also ensures that the addition of new wires doesn’t look like a  noodles puzzle.
