Instrument Panel Enclosures
An instrument panel is a flat, often vertical, area where control or monitoring instruments or controls are displayed. Instrument control panels are designed to monitor and control levels such as temperature, flow, current, and pressure from the field instruments that are connected to it. These panels are used in a variety of industries including petrochemical, refineries, pipelines, pharmaceutical, water wastewater, and food processing.
Instrument Panel Enclosures are found in factories to monitor and control machines or production lines and in places such as nuclear power plants, ships, aircraft and mainframe computers. Older control panels are most often equipped with push buttons and analog instruments, whereas nowadays in many cases touchscreens are used for monitoring and control purposes.
The instrument enclosures we fabricate are made out of a variety of metals in protect electrical and control components. The enclosure could be made out of steel, stainless steel, or aluminum. Many enclosure options offer varying degrees of environmental protection from elements such as foreign objects, dust, water, oil, chemicals, and rain as provided with NEMA 1, NEMA 3X, NEMA 3R, NEMA 4X, or NEMA 12 ratings.
Instrument panel enclosures are used to protect many types of electrical control components includingo: circuit breakers, AC drives (VFDs),motor controls, transformers, disconnect switches, panel meters, operator interface panels, power distribution blocks and junction terminals, DIN rail terminal blocks, programmable logic controllers (PLCs), pushbuttons, indicators, relays, timers, signal stack lights, soft starters, temperature controllers, and more.
