Electronic panels are used to control a system, whether it is in a factory, a power plant or an aircraft. They will usually be custom built by control panel manufacturers, giving the operator complete flexibility to work the electronic components as required. They may include various buttons, switches and instruments that will control different aspects of the electronic system.
It’s important that a control panel is, first and foremost, safe to use. The components involved in the panel should be safe and the person operating it should be given full training to ensure they know what they are doing. The panel should be made of a suitable material and should be checked over on a regular basis. It should also be as simple to use as possible, as this will streamline processes in an industrial environment. The different parts should be easy to recognise and to differentiate between for users.
