What is Electrical Control Panel?

Electrical control panels are designed and used to operate mechanical. Each one is built for a specific equipment arrangement and consists of devices which allow an operator to control the equipment that is specified.

In each sector, the electrical panel control every piece of equipment. All possible combinations are difficult to explain since every industry and most companies have established preferences for components.

If your control panels need to speed up quickly, seeking someone who can help you and get their services. You can search for H Tech Engineering as they are the leading electrical and electronic engineering company in Malaysia that provide with the control panel service and installation.


Control Panel Installation

The installation shall be consistent with all relevant national (NEC, IEC, EN, etc.) and local electricity codes and regulations.

  • The need for power test equipment and facilities, for example as vacuums used for maintenance, is an ignored matter with bigger control panels. Working with the electrical provider to decide which standard offerings are closest to what you need will result in substantial cost and supply savings.
  • The next step for control panel installation will be to find out where to position the panel after it is designed. Determine the exterior dimensions and the cabinet door for swing requirements. It is best to provide enough space for a test cart to roll over the area with those open doors to minimize maintenance inefficiencies and other hidden costs during service.
  • The control panels are normally close to the process area. A high ambient temperature may require air conditioning or ventilation on the cabinet, all with filters requiring maintenance. Adding a heater or dehumidifier may be otherwise necessary.
  • Find the air exhaust and intake vents to keep the filter spare and ensure no process interference; it is not necessarily beneficial to have a cabinet vent suck in air off of an aluminium melting pot.
  • The ampacity of the supply conductors may be misleading, if the specifications are not divided into distinct measures
  • Either you can place an overcurrent protective device (OCPD) in the panel or place an overcurrent panel protection in front of the panel.
  • The NEC requires each panel to be labelled with its short circuit current rating (SCCR)
  • Look for grounding measures


A cabinet that has standard workmanship should have well-arranged wires running in gutters or channels, laid out with only smooth curves to the cable radii, without sharp bends and kinks. It should clearly mark all cables, components and terminals. When installation needs maintenance and troubleshoots, we cannot emphasize the importance of a sound labelling technique. It spares time in checked for mistakes, and eventually saves you from stress.
