Electrical Panels

MPM engages an electrical panel fabrication shop that is fully equipped to build electrical panels for your industrial operation. The fabrication shop has 3 phase power available for testing of MCC’s and VFD’s. The shop is CSA and UL certified, for systems up to 2000 amps at 600 volts. The shop is able to accommodate operator cabs and industrial computer rooms, both for rewiring and building from scratch.

We have experience with a wide range of MCC products and are able to arrange the assembly, configuration, and supply of the full package for a factory process. Some of the brands we work with include:

  • Allen-Bradley
  • Eaton / Cutler Hammer
  • Siemens
  • ABB

For many years, we have worked with systems using a variety of VFD drives – from very simple setups to complex designs. Our experience in supplying and tuning VFDs spans three decades, and we are very familiar with configuring drives for ideal controlled speed profiles. For instance, we have utilized the configuration options of Allen-Bradley 700-series drives to perform synchronized moves between a tong feeder and a lug chain. Another completed project is the supply and configuration of a servo drive for control of a rotary log positioning system on a wood processing line – we have experience with both Allen-Bradley Kinetix drives and Emerson Unidrives.

  • Some of the VFD brands we have experience with include:
  • Allen-Bradley
  • Baldor
  • Toshiba
  • Mitsubishi
  • Emerson
  • ABB

We supply many types of operator consoles, from the simplest button stations and lockouts to sophisticated split consoles. Our consoles can be built to the factory’s design specifications, including component requests such as button style, joystick model, or touchscreen format. Alternatively, we are able to have consoles built based on the most common, high quality, and locally available components. In addition to building new consoles from scratch, we are also able to arrange reconditioning and refinishing of existing consoles, fully populated with new operator controls, touchscreens, armpads, elevation control, and even a sound system!

We have a high bay shop space that allows us to accommodate operator cabins and industrial air-tight soundproof computer rooms. Cabins and rooms can be spec’d by the customer and built as dictated, thus allowing us to facilitate the supply of a fully assembled unit with integrated electrics, consoles, component mounting / shelves, storage, desks, and HVAC – with CSA / UL approval.

Over the years, we have found certain interfaces to hardware have either not existed or were poorly designed. As such, we have built a variety of custom electronic interface boards for encoders, photocells and scanners – often in order to connect seamlessly with a computer system. We continue to produce many circuit boards that simplify connectivity between industrial electronics and control or computer systems.  Please note that these circuits are low voltage DC and often supplied in a CSA / UL approved panel.

Our electronics experts have extensive component experience and understanding, and often apply this knowledge to the repair, reconditioning, and tuning of complex electronic devices. Some of these devices include encoder resolvers, Temposonic sensors and transducer recirc cards, Allen-Bradley PLC5 QB cards, and a variety of laser scanning heads and controllers.
