Control panels, also known as electrical control panels or control cabinets, are devices that house various electrical components and controls used to monitor and manage the operation of a system or equipment. They are commonly found in industrial settings, manufacturing facilities, power plants, and automation systems. Control panels serve as the central hub for controlling and monitoring the functions of machines, processes, or systems. They typically consist of an enclosure or cabinet that houses electrical components such as switches, buttons, indicators, displays, circuit breakers, relays, and programmable logic controllers (PLCs). These components are wired together to create a control system that allows operators to regulate and oversee the operation of the equipment or process.

The functions of a control panel can vary depending on the specific application. It may include controls for starting and stopping equipment, adjusting speed or temperature, monitoring various parameters such as pressure, level, or flow rate, displaying real-time data, and providing safety features such as emergency stop buttons or alarm systems. Control panels are designed to provide a user-friendly interface for operators to interact with the equipment or system. They often feature labels, diagrams, or graphical displays to aid in understanding the control functions and status of the process. Advanced control panels may incorporate touchscreen interfaces or computer-based control systems for enhanced functionality and programmability.
