Control Panel Enclosures
A control panel is the electrical connections that manage and monitor a mechanical or electronic process. Because these components are interconnected and essential for operation, they are housed together in a control panel enclosure.
APX Enclosures has manufactured these cabinets since 2001. Our NEMA enclosures protect housed electronics from rain, snow, dripping water and corrosion. Our engineers can customize the layout and features of your enclosure to meet your application’s requirements. Regardless of the configuration and custom options you choose, your control station enclosure will last for the long term.
Control Cabinet Enclosure Applications
A space containing sensitive electrical equipment requires a high-quality control panel enclosure to ensure adequate protection. Exposure to elements like the sun, rain, dust and dirt can potentially damage the equipment and potentially result in an electrical fault. Industrial control panel enclosures are designed to house all of the electrical components in a control panel.
Knowing which type of cabinet enclosure is right for your application is critical. Junction boxes and circuit breakers come in many different types and designs with unique protection requirements.
Examples may include:
Programmable logic controller
Main circuit breaker
Overcurrent protection devices
Wires and cables
APX Enclosures can install racks and shelves within the cabinet for the optimal layout of your electronics. Our control panel enclosures are available in many sizes and layouts, so you can select a cabinet that meets your needs.
Control Panel Enclosure Configurations and Layouts
APX Enclosures offers several configurations for control panel enclosures. Each varies based on features like the size of the cabinet and the number and placement of doors to ensure the layout works for your electrical components. Configurations include:
