In the industry, having a safe, efficient and reliable source of electrical energy is essential to guarantee an optimal production process. Industrial electrical cabinets are essential devices in any industry, since they allow controlling and protecting the electrical supply, as well as distributing electrical energy in different circuits.
However, choosing the right industrial electrical cabinets is not easy, since it will depend on various factors, such as the amount of electrical energy required, the complexity of the installation, the type of process that will be carried out, among others. Therefore, it is essential to have the advice of professionals specialized in the design and installation of industrial electrical cabinets.
In this blog, we will delve into the different types of industrial electrical cabinets and which one will best suit your industry depending on the required needs.
Industrial electrical cabinets are essential components in any industrial-type electrical installation. In general terms, an industrial electrical panel is a device that allows the control and protection of the electrical supply in an installation, and that also allows the distribution of electrical energy in different circuits. Industrial electrical cabinets are used in different types of industries, including manufacturing, petrochemical, food, pharmaceutical, energy, among others.
In an industrial facility, it is essential to have electrical cabinets that are safe, efficient and reliable. Industrial electrical cabinets are designed to ensure the protection of the installation and electrical equipment, in addition to allowing a balanced and controlled distribution of electrical energy in different circuits.
Industrial electrical cabinets are made up of different electrical components, such as switches, contactors, relays, transformers, electric power meters, among others. In addition, they can have automation and control systems, which allow the monitoring and supervision of different electrical and operational variables in the installation.
The electrical distribution cabinets are responsible for distributing electrical energy to different circuits of the industrial facility, ensuring a balanced and efficient distribution of electrical energy. These electrical panels can be single-phase or three-phase and are mainly used in low-voltage installations.
Its main function is to manage the correct power of the equipment and machinery that is connected to the switchboard. On the other hand, they protect the different circuits of the installation.
The electrical control cabinets are used to control and monitor different electrical equipment in the industrial installation, such as motors, pumps, lighting, among others. These electrical panels are essential to guarantee the correct operation of the installation and are used in both low and medium voltage installations.
They are in charge of managing a process whose complexity can vary, using one or several PLCs. Normally, they incorporate some type of human-machine interface, such as a touch screen. In addition, the ability to connect to the network of these boxes has not stopped growing, and allows us to carry out support and maintenance tasks in a very effective, remote and fast way.
It constitutes one of the types of industrial electrical cabinets that control a process in a very simple way through wired logic.
They are used to control and operate a specific process in a simple way. In these boxes we usually find pressure switches, thermostats, timers and the like.
It is important to note that the choice of the appropriate industrial electrical cabinet will depend on different factors, such as the amount of electrical energy required, the complexity of the installation, the type of process that will be carried out, among others.
For what it will be in most cases it will be essential to have a professional in the installation, which allows advising each industry on the subject, since as we have seen, choosing industrial electrical panels will depend to a large extent on the various factors that we have seen in this blog.
