Overview of Manufacturing Panel Wiring & Control Systems
Control panels are custom-tailored to the specifications of the equipment and the application. Some of the components commonly found in these assemblies include:
- PLCs.Programmable logic controllers (PLCs) are small industrial computers used to automate control processes.
- CPUs. The CPU serves as the control point for the PLC.
- Input/Output Cards. These components send and receive analog and digital signals.
- PLC Wiring. Wires are used to connect the input/output cards to the PLC terminals.
- Alarms. These components inform facility workers of potential issues in the system.
- Reset and Emergency Stop Buttons. These buttons are used to reset or completely shut off the system in case of emergencies.
- Power Supply. This component powers the entire assembly.
Why do businesses need panel wiring and control systems? Because everyone is looking for ways to decrease costs and increase productivity. Having the right control system for custom machines can help automate repetitive tasks, resulting in improved operational safety and efficiency. Some of the common functions control panels perform include:
- Switching facility equipment on and off for normal and emergency operations
- Adjusting processing conditions to accommodate current demand
- Informing facility managers and workers of current system conditions
At Astro Machine Works, we have extensive experience assisting our customers with the systems needed for full automation. We pour that knowledge and skill into creating great results for clients like you.
Benefits of Custom-Tailored Panel Wiring and Control Systems
Partnering with an experienced and knowledgeable control panel wiring and control system company can lead to before-to-after cost savings of 35–60%, depending on the design and configuration of the control panel. They can also consolidate multiple wires for simpler and faster wiring configurations and integrate embedded smart chips to form a solid line of communication between the main controller and connected components.
Some of the general advantages of control panel systems include:
- Smaller equipment requirements. They can establish control capabilities without the use of air compressors and other similar machinery.
- Faster response time. They allow for near-instantaneous response to changes in process conditions or demand.
- Lower risk of leakage. They eliminate the risk of leaks, effectively eliminating the risk of leaks impacting process efficiency. This, in turn, minimizes the risk of unscheduled downtime and valuable resource loss.
- Better space efficiency. They take up less space within the facility.
