Our typical Build

Design Process
On receiving an enquiry we arrange a meeting to sit down with the client to understand their needs. All information will be gathered at this meeting in order to quote and design the desired control panel for the application required. From the information gathered we then give a detailed quotation for the Control Panel required. Upon approval we can then move forward to the build.

Enclosures
All Control Panels are built with Rittal enclosures, unless otherwise specified, and are designed to have 25% additional space for future expansion within the enclosure provided. All enclosures can be expanded further with the use of the Rittal Baying system, which are integrated into all our designs. This system allows for inexpensive expansion as our clients needs expand into the future.

Wiring Systems
All Control Panels are wired in Panel Flex throughout with all terminations finished with bootlace ferrules to ensure a good final connection. All terminations are identified with the clients numbering system with the use of wrap around vinyl labels which correspond back to all Panel Schematics. These labels are guaranteed to last the lifetime of the control panel ensuring easy electrical maintenance going forward. This combined with the Wieland Spring Release Terminals ensures easy electrical maintenance going forward.

Controls
This ranges from Powerflex 755 Speed Drives to Compact Logix PLC Controllers right through to Guard Lock Systems utilizing Guardmaster Safety Systems with integrated Safety Controls. We can design a control panel to utilize any of the Allen Bradley family to ensure you have a system specifically designed for any client need. This can consist of Push Button or Panelview Plus Controls.

Monitoring
All systems are designed to communicate with Fibre or Standard Networks via internal control panel networking wired back to Network Switches. We also provide Energy Monitoring on all our panels that can also be monitored locally at the Control Panel or via the Network.

Programming
All PLC controls or Drives are designed to the clients needs. All controls are fully tested and fine tuned prior to delivery to site in our workshop. All panels are fully tested and commissioned on site upon installation.

In addition to the above, all control panels can be fit with the following:

Mains Distribution Systems
Panel Cooling (Air Condition Units/ Extract Fan Systems)
110v Panel Lighting Sytems
Main Earth Bar
Laptop Trays
PC Access Points
Identification (Terminals, Cables and Contols)
