Control Panel Troubleshooting

Industrial control panels (ICP) are a systemic collection of at least two parts including overload relays, motor controllers, circuit breakers, fused disconnect switches and associated control devices such as selector switches, control relays, pushbutton stations, terminal blocks, switches, timers, pilot lights and wiring, among other parts.


The components of control panels are categorized into control, electrical power and operator devices. Each component in a control panel plays a specific function. Available in different designs and sizes, ICPs are found in almost every industry, each with a control panel that meets its requirements.

ICPs find use in industrial settings such as factories. They’re used to control and monitor production lines or complex machines. Control panels are found in mainframe computers, ships, nuclear power plants and even aircrafts. Whereas traditional control panels are manipulated through analog instruments and push buttons, modern versions come with touch screens.

Control panels come in simple basic designs. A good control panel is easy to operate, attractive in appearance and reliable to function when needed and as expected. Moreover, they’re easy to maintain and cost less to make. Although manufacturers can design control panels based on certain specifications, it’s best to understand that control panels are all about procedures.

When control panels fail, the machines they control and monitor either stops working or they don’t work as they should. The end result for any company is reduced production, leading to lost revenue. However, if quick action is taken to solve the problems, such losses can be prevented, if not minimized.
