What are Control Systems and Control Systems loops?

The industrial control system is a communication network of electrical devices used to control or maintain an industrial process so that it operates properly and with minimum interruptions.  It regulates via control loops, we can find two main types of control performance such as open-loops and closed-loops.

Open-loop Control Systems

In an open-loop control system, the output has no influence on the control action of the input signal. In other words, the controller is independent of the output variable of the process. For example, a timer used to switch a valve element on or off is open-loop, so the timer will switch the device to ‘OFF’ at a specified time, regardless of any external behaviour. Thus, the output does not measure nor feedback to the input. These systems as known as non-feedback systems.

Closed-loop Control Systems

In the case of, the closed-loop control system, the input or controlling action depends on the output. The action relies on the feedback signal from the process itself. For example, the air conditioner controls the temperature based on the thermostat signals.

Benefits of Well-Design Panel

Benefits of a well-designed electrical control panel with regards to component placement and trunking layout.

Panel Vertical Spacing

Appropriate vertical space allows power components to dissipate heat more effectively. So, an electrical panel builder understands the importance of adjusting the spacing between control panels for effectiveness.

Panel Trunking

Using trunking within the panel that is suitably sized allows for easier maintenance and also leaves capacity for any additional cabling at a later stage.

Safety and Reliability

Electrical control panels are part of any manufacturing process and it is a fundamental aspect of control systems. However, control panels require some key components to function safely and reliably.

Control Panel Space

Sufficient horizontal room gives space for the addition or expansion of components including but not limited to power distribution, circuit breakers, relays, terminal strips, and PLC racks.

Control Panel Design

We are a UK based control panel manufacturer and have the facilities of our own technical in-house design producing our schematics in Eplan or Xelec format. Thus, we adhere to all the manufacturing standards for quality. Along with our design expertise, all our electrical panel wiring and panel functionality are fully tested and the resulting panel CE marked.

There are a lot of cheap control panels in the market place but we aim to produce a long-lasting high-quality panel. Working from our manufacturing premises in Liverpool, we produce and test all our custom-built panels. Besides this, we have a proven track record in serving in many industries. For example, Aerospace, Marine, Automotive, Food, Environmental, Robotics, and many others.

Electrical Control Panels

The electrical control cabinet is one of the main features of a machine or floor plant system. However, it is often the last aspect considered during a project.

It is better to take all factors into account when pricing an electrical control panel and not just opt for the cheapest solution. Some of the benefits of having a first-class quality panel include production uptime, and panels working properly with easy troubleshooting if on the rare occasion that a component fails. However, users need to consider the long-term value over the life of the control panel, bearing in mind, flexibility, and potential future modifications.

Therefore, a good electrical control panel manufacturer takes all these factors into account at the moment of building the control panel.

Certified Industrial Control Systems

Electrical control panels certification ensures our customers that we follow UK Standards. Bearing this in mind, all our industrial electrical panel wiring is electrically tested at our premises in Liverpool UK so that the panel arrives on-site tested and fully validated. Also, we assign a Project Manager to the project to ensure a clear line of communication from design through commissioning.

Phoenix is certified by ISO9001, NICEIC, CHAS Accredited Contractor and SafeContractor. Above all, we provide quality service and ensure compliance with international regulations. Thus, our certified electrical engineers in Oxford and Liverpool can serve in the entire UK.

    Key Considerations for Future Expansion

    A control panel manufacturer considers the layout of the components to achieve the best logical-functional layout for the control panel design when they take on a project for an industrial panel. Therefore, some of the main components of an industrial control panel are power distribution, switching, circuit breakers, terminals, fusing, relays, and safety devices. Besides this, it is essential taking into account the requirement to leave enough space for future expansion.

    Remember, it is not just about the initial design requirements but also future possible modification, giving value and flexibility.

    Future Proof Cabinet Design

    When purchasing any type of control cabinet, unibody, or modular, users may need to bear in mind future modifications.

    All these modifications may create interference with electronics already in the panel and it will require time to protect and keep debris clear.

    When considering a control cabinet it is important to consider future proof design, with a flexible layout, and ongoing maintenance accessibility. Why? Because these can affect the life and cost of the equipment.

    Industrial control panels often need to evolve during their lifespan. So, by choosing the right cabinet at the time of purchase reduces downtime, improves efficiency, and delivers value over time. Therefore, the right enclosure chosen from the beginning may protect your investment against future modifications with no needs to purchase further cabinets.

    Technical Support

    A good control panel builder provides technical support during all the phases of the build of the electrical panel from design to installation and beyond. At Phoenix, we build our panel following high-standard procedures and paying attention to details.

    Our standards are based on control quality management, including a strong focus on customer requirements. Therefore, we are not just one of the control panel builders but also provide complete electrical control systems integration solutions.

    Likewise, we aim to provide top control management services for continual and future improvement. Thus, these principles ensure that customers get consistent high-quality service and delivery of quality products to their customers.

    Safety tips for Control Panel Builders

    An electrical hazard may happen when the panels or any industrial equipment does not have an adequate SCCR for the available short-circuit (fault) current.

    Therefore, to avoid this to happen the industrial control panel must be adequate for the available fault current.  In fact, one of the tasks of a control system integrator is to determine the rating factor at the time of the design phase.
