Electrical panels are devices used to control the electrical energy distribution of a building or facility. They usually contain many circuit breakers, fuses, measuring instruments and control equipment.
Electrical panels provide energy to the main line that connects to the power supply of the facility. The incoming electrical energy is protected in the switchboard by fuses or circuit breakers and is then arranged to feed the various loads in the sub-circuits. These sub-circuits are electrical loads that meet the different needs of buildings or facilities, such as lights, sockets, HVAC (heating, ventilation and air conditioning) systems, machinery, and other electrical equipment.
Electrical panels are also used for measuring and monitoring energy from the power supply. These measurements can be used to control and optimize the facility's energy consumption.
Electrical panels are usually located in a confined space and can only be accessed by authorized personnel. Enclosures come in many different sizes and capacities and can be customized according to the needs of the facility.
