SM Control can manufacture electrical control panels including cable glanding, terminals & control wiring. Control panels can be designed utilizing CAD frameworks and manufactured in painted mild steel, stainless steel or GRP / resin, depending on the installation area and the particular necessities of the client. The design would include a selection of enclosure and door-mounted equipment, segregation of power and control voltages, selection of control hardware and overall layout. We have a committed group of skilled control panel engineers.
Control Panels often include machine safety systems to protect operators and machines from potential damage and costly downtime. Our electrical engineers compare the potential risks against the need for access, and formulate a design for guarding, safety circuits and access protection to suit the application and to satisfy the Customer’s requirements, and as required by European Machinery Directive 2006 / 42 / EC
Control panels also often include PLC / HMI systems, which offer a high degree of flexibility towards safety and security. Manufacturers also produce ‘Safe PLCs’ for more complex safety functions that meet the high standards required of safety equipment. Our Engineers are experienced in the programming of Safety PLCs and the design of machine safety solutions.
SM Control provide machine safety assessment and, within their control panels, the necessary safety precautions and equipment to maintain the required Safety Integrity Level (SIL) and Performance Level (PL) required by the application when acting in conjunction with the fixed, removeable and/or electronic guards of the automated machinery.
