How to wire an electrical panel in a safe and functional way

When we talk about automation electrical panels we mean all the control. Protection and control panels of a specific plant, such as a thermal plant or a water treatment plant, or a plant on the machine, were it is also foreseen the presence of motor protection devices, lights, relays, selectrors, etc. It is important to know all the devices perfectly before wiring. Here are the components to consider and how to wire an electrical panel in a safe and functional way.

The wiring of an automation electrical panel

To understand how to wire an electrical panel, start from the power of the motor. Usually an electrical panel of automation feeds engines that start from a few Watts up to hundreds of kilowatts, so it is good to protect the engine with a device, like the motor protection switch, which is able to limit the current absorbed by the engine itself, or it would be, it is advisable to separate the thermal protection from the magnetic one. After that, the auxiliary transformer must also be dimensioned before proceeding with the development of the electrical panel construction project and then defining the characteristics of the components, such as the marking of cables and clamps, the definition of conductors, the colors of the cables and the command and signaling. In other words proceed with the construction of the electrical diagram of the panel.
