Control Panel Design
Our design team can provide control panel schematics and hardware layouts based on simple specification lists and application sketches. These control panels will be designed to meet UL508A panel specifications using AutoCAD electrical software.
UL508A Control Panel Fabrication
Our fabrication team can build a control panel using customer designs or our designs that meet all necessary UL508A standards. In addition to our custom panel fabrication, the control panel shop staff conducts a comprehensive and detailed test of each completed panel to ensure it meets all provided specifications. If the control panel is built with automation products supplied and supported by us, the completed panel also receives a full configuration/network test “Green Light”. This ensures proper firm ware and eliminates premature product failures.
