Control Cabinets

All electrical appliances require some form of control to function as intended. Control and regulation are often associated with machinery or processes, but they can encompass anything from simple switch control to large, complex systems with sensors and detectors. Inside smaller appliances, circuit boards and memory chips are used for control, while larger and more complex systems require additional components. Historically, control cabinets or control panels have been used to address this issue. A control panel generally contains a certain amount of power distribution, while a control cabinet is more focused on control, regulation, and monitoring. The rapid advancements in automation are blurring the distinctions between these types.


Applications for Control Cabinets

Control cabinets are used to manage various aspects of turbine control, protection functions for generators, or process functions for offshore gas installations. This type of process-critical equipment has significant requirements for robustness, reliability, and functionality. Our customers come from commercial, offshore, and military applications, where we can offer control equipment for all these markets.

 Applications for Control Panels

Control panels are used in industry and buildings to control and regulate lighting, heating, ventilation, process automation, and power circuits. Elektromontage can deliver systems designed and manufactured according to IEC, ATEX, UL/CSA, and even EAC standards. We also design and produce automation equipment for marine applications, which can be classified according to marine classification societies and meet requirements for shock and/or ATEX regulations.

Difference between Control Cabinets and Control Panels

Control panels contain components such as switches, contactors, overcurrent protection, measuring equipment, monitoring units, and communication devices. A control cabinet is often more geared towards a process or machine and therefore contains equipment specifically tailored for this purpose. It may include control systems, vibration monitoring systems, relay protection, and other peripheral devices.

Close collaboration with the Customer

Elektromontage's work often takes place in close collaboration with the customer, with the shared goal of delivering a customized system where functionality, along with personal safety, operational reliability, and energy efficiency, always take precedence. Many of our customers value the assurance of having a supplier that takes responsibility for the entire process, from design to manufacturing complete systems, from control to power distribution on the machine or in the facility.


What is a control cabinet?

A control cabinet is a central unit designed to house, protect, and organize electrical components and control systems used to monitor and control various types of electrical facilities. This can include everything from advanced control systems for process industries to solutions for building automation and energy distribution. The cabinet's construction not only ensures protection against external influences such as dust and water but also provides a structured environment for efficient cable management and easy access for service and maintenance. At Elektromontage, we focus on developing customized control cabinets that precisely meet our clients' unique needs, with a high standard of safety, functionality, and adaptability. Our goal is to deliver solutions that are not only technically optimal but also help to simplify operation and maintenance for users.

What are the needs for industrial automation?

The needs for industrial automation are multifaceted and include increased efficiency, precision, and productivity. Automation minimizes human error and contributes to consistent and uniform quality of manufactured products. It also enables flexibility in production, where adaptation to new products can occur quickly and efficiently. Additionally, improvements in the work environment are an important aspect, as automation can relieve staff from monotonous and potentially dangerous work. At Elektromontage, we ensure that our clients' automation needs are met by offering innovative solutions that not only optimize production but also support sustainable development and competitiveness in the market.

What is industrial automation and control engineering?

Industrial automation and control engineering involves the design, implementation, and maintenance of technical systems and software solutions to control production processes and machinery. These systems enable industries to achieve high precision, efficiency, and reliability in their production. By using a broad range of technologies such as PLCs (Programmable Logic Controllers), sensors, and network solutions, automated systems can monitor and adjust production processes in real time. At Elektromontage, we combine our technical expertise with innovative control techniques to develop customized automation solutions that meet our clients' specific needs, helping to optimize their operations and promote growth.

What components are used in industrial automation?

In industrial automation, several key components are necessary to build effective and reliable systems. These include design and configuration software to create and adjust automation processes, integrated architecture to simplify integration and communication between different system parts, and intelligent motor control for efficient machinery management. At Elektromontage, we are dedicated to using and integrating these components to create advanced automation solutions that improve our clients' productivity, safety, and operational efficiency.

What is an automation system?

An automation system is an integrated network of control units, software, and equipment designed to automate and optimize various processes within an organization. By using technology to replace or assist human efforts in production, management, and monitoring, companies can achieve greater efficiency, precision, and speed in their workflows. These systems can be customized for a range of applications, from manufacturing and inventory management to building automation and more. At Elektromontage, we specialize in developing and implementing customized automation systems that not only improve productivity but also help reduce costs and enhance workplace safety.
