Panel Building

Panel building involves the assembly of electrical control panels that house the control systems and interfaces for various types of machinery and equipment. These panels are essential for the safe and efficient operation of electro-mechanical systems in industries such as oil & gas, utilities, and agriculture, which are sectors represented by AEMT members.

Components of a Control Panel:

  1. Circuit Breakers: For overload protection and circuit isolation.

  2. PLCs (Programmable Logic Controllers): For automation and control logic.

  3. Relays and Contactors: For switching and control tasks.

  4. Human-Machine Interface (HMI): For monitoring and control by operators.

  5. Sensors and Transducers: For data collection and monitoring.

  6. Wiring and Terminals: To connect all components and provide paths for electrical currents.

Key Functions and Services by AEMT Members:

  1. Design and Engineering: AEMT members often have the expertise to design custom control panels tailored to specific industrial applications.

  2. Assembly and Installation: Members are involved in the assembly and installation of control panels, ensuring they meet industry standards and safety regulations.

  3. Testing and Commissioning: Rigorous testing is conducted to ensure that the panel functions as intended, followed by commissioning to integrate it into the existing system.

  4. Maintenance and Repair: Regular maintenance services, including condition monitoring, are offered to ensure the panel's optimal performance and longevity.

  5. Emergency Services: 24-hour emergency services are available to address any urgent issues related to control panels, minimizing downtime and operational losses.

  6. Sustainability: In line with AEMT's focus on environmental sustainability, energy-efficient components may be used in the panel building process to reduce energy consumption and environmental impact.

  7. Asset Management: Advanced monitoring systems can be integrated into control panels to manage the health and performance of the connected machinery, thereby extending their lifespan and reducing the total cost of ownership.

In summary, panel building is a critical service that enables the centralized control and monitoring of various types of machinery and equipment. AEMT members offer comprehensive services in this area, ensuring that control panels are designed, assembled, and maintained to the highest industry standards.
