Panel Production

Over the past 20 years, CableTronics have made hundreds of electronic and mechanical panels, including simple user interface, sophisticated process control, automation, power cabinets and racks.

From small commercial businesses to large OEMs, CableTronics offer a complete panel build service. This includes the following (examples in brackets):

  • Outsourcing of both cabinet machining and panel spraying
  • Enclosure construction (windows, hangers, locks, fans, lights)
  • Manufacture of internal and external labels and plates
  • Cabinet preparation (seals, glands, gaskets, grommets)
  • Mechanical mounting (trunking, DIN rail, earth bars, buzz bars)
  • Component population (connectors, screens, displays, plcs, relays)
  • All internal point to point wiring and looming
  • External cable manufacture
  • Programming and calibrating
  • PAT and high voltage testing

Panels with a few indicators and switches to cabinets incorporating screens, touch displays, PLCC controllers, heavy duty switch gear, three phase components, flow tubes, pressure gauges, valves and solenoids have all been built at our workshop in Biggleswade.

Many of our cabinets have to meet strict CE or UL 508A and UL 698 regulations to comply with intrinsically safe standards.

Not all of our panels are in enclosures; chassis can be built and wired, whether on a simple back plane or metal carcass.

Meticulous attention is given to every production detail, exposed live components are always shrouded and each wire is carefully labelled to identifycevery connection. We take pride in our work, and wiring is always neatly arranged. If required, components and graphic symbols can be identified with colour coordinated labels or nameplates.

Other examples of our attention to detail include:

  • Planning, appearance and critical path routing
  • Printed information, hinges and heat sources
  • Seating, serviceability, support and stability
  • Approach to termination points and termination lengths
  • Trunking, grouping, crimping and fastening
  • Accessibility to test points

We have also seen many different methods of documenting panel construction and wiring over the years, with unique schedules and symbols specific to different industries and sectors. So, while we may not understand every character, we have a good knowledge of most wiring schedules, circuit symbols and templates.

As with all our other manufacturing services, all components can be purchased on your behalf or you are welcome to free issue parts if preferred.

Our panels and cabinets are used in a vast array of applications, including public areas, process control, machine automation, fire and security, gas pipelines, petrol forecourts, transportation and aviation systems around the world.

Below is a short list of some of the more popular manufacturers we purchase from:

  • Allen Bradley
  • ABB
  • Control Techniques
  • Danfoss
  • Mitsubishi
  • Omron
  • Parker SSD (Eurotherm)
  • Siemens
  • Sprint Electric
  • Telemecanique
  • Toshiba
