WIRING ACCESSORIES OF ELECTRIC CONTROL PANEL


All the Control Wiring accessories and hardwires are to be chosen based on Reputed Brand, ISI Marked enable , and Quality of durability that leads to make perfect wiring of the Control Panel, Because perfect wiring Inside of the Panel Circuit is known as a Heart of any Electrical Control Panels. 

Wire : Connecting wire is used to connect all equipment according to the circuit diagram. There are various colour and size of wire. Depending on the current rating the size of cable is selected. 

Terminal : A terminal is the point at which a conductor from an electrical component, device or network comes to an end and provides a point of connection to external circuits. Mostly use terminals are Stud type terminal and screw type terminal.

Sockets : Sockets are devices that allow electrically operated equipment to be connected to the wire. Electrical plugs and sockets differ in voltage and current rating, shape, size and type of connectors. It may be pin type, ring type, fork type, barrel type.

Cable Duct : A tube used to protect and route electrical wiring. It may be made of metal, plastic, fiber, or fired clay. In most cases plastic, flexible conduit is used for some purposes

Ferule : A Printed number(code) put around the end of wire (from 1 Sq.mm – 16 Sq.mm) to detect the connection flow. Usually it is used both side of wire with a specific code. And that code denotes the connecting path of that wire.

Ties : Cable Ties are designed to secure wire bundles and harness components quickly, without slipping. The common tie-wrap, normally made of nylon, has a flexible tape section with teeth that engage with a pawl in the head to form a ratchet so that as the free end of the tape section is pulled the tie-wrap tightens and does not come undone.

Spiral Binding: Coil binding, also known as spiral binding. It is used to bind the wire properly. Spiral coil binding spines are also available in more colours and sizes than other binding styles. Gum Saddle : It is used to fit the wire in the panel wall properly. Normally it is made of plastic. Wire is fixed to it tightly by tie. Nut Bolt & Washer : Lock washers are almost always used with a flat washer as well. The nut is also often smaller in profile than the bolt head. Not always, but often. The washer helps distribute the pressure that the nut places on the surface of the fastened objects

MAINTAIN OF DEGREE OF PROTECTION

IP Rating – Ingress Protection
The IP rating is used to specify the environmental protection of the electrical enclosure which contains the components and control equipment, often stated when panels are likely to be placed outside or when there may be contact with water, dust or other particles
Ingress Protection (IP) ratings are developed by the European Committee for Electro Technical Standardization (CENELEC) (NEMA IEC 60529 Degrees of Protection Provided by Enclosures - IP Code), specifying the environmental protection the enclosure provides.


The IP rating normally has two (or three) numbers:

  1. Protection from solid objects or materials
  2. Protection from liquids (water)
  3. Protection against mechanical impacts (commonly omitted, the third number is not a part of IEC 6052).

Example - IP Rating 
With the IP rating IP 54 - 5 describes the level of protection from solid objects and 4 describes the level of protection from liquids.
An "X" can used for one of the digits if there is only one class of protection, i.e. IPX1 which addresses protection against vertically falling drops of water e.g. condensation.

IP First number - Protection against solid objects

●  No special protection.

● Protected against solid objects over 50 mm, e.g. accidental touch by persons hands
● Protected against solid objects over 12 mm, e.g. persons fingers
● Protected against solid objects over 2.5 mm (tools and wires
● Protected against solid objects over 1 mm (tools, wires and small wires
● Protected against dust limited ingress (no harmful deposit).
       Totally protected against dust


IP Second number - Protection against liquids


●  No protection.
●  Protection against vertically falling drops of water e.g. condensation.
●  Protection against direct sprays of water up to 15° from the vertical.
●  Protection against water sprayed from all directions – limited ingress permitted.
●  Protected against low pressure jets of water from all directions – limited ingress.
●  Protected against temporary flooding of water, e.g. for use on ship decks – limited ingress permitted.
●  Protected against the effect of immersion between 15 cm and 1 m.
●  Protects against long periods of immersion under pressure. 

FEW ESSENTIAL STEPS FOR ELECTRICAL CONTROL PANELS DESIGN

1. Electrical Schematic GA & SLD Panel Layout Drawings  : 
We prepare the CAD schematic drawings for both the panel layout and the electrical circuit of the panel on receipt of confirmed order from client. Once these are complete they are sent to the client for full approval. Manufacturing can only commence once we have the written approval from the client.


2. Manufacture and Test  : 
Next, we manufacture the control panel. Electro Components & Systems have full ISO 9001-2008 Certified and use Bus bars, High  Quality Wiring as per ISI standard, Thorough Routine Test,  All our panels are manufactured and tested using these manufacturing standards.


3. FAT Workshop Test and Functionality Simulation  : 
Once manufactured, the client are invited to visit our manufacturing facility for a Factory Acceptance Test. The testing includes functionality testing, where we simulate the operation of the machine that the panel is being built for, and make sure that operates correctly.


We test the panel as thoroughly as we can at this point to your complete satisfaction. If you, the client, decide upon any modifications it is at this point those can be agreed and carried out.


4. Delivery, Installation and Commissioning  : 
Once that testing is completed to your full satisfaction we deliver the control panel to your site. 
We can then offer complete installation and commissioning services.

We then perform a series of additional functionality tests on-site to make sure that the panel operates correctly in-site
