Custom control panel design and manufacturing

Introduction

Custom control panels

When you apply requiring a custom control panel but don’t have the resources to design one in-house, you have to outsource. Ideally, you tell your chosen provider what you need and they take it from there, designing the panel and specifying the parts to go in it. If your provider can build your panel, they will put their purchasers to work, pricing parts from various distributors. If not, you have to find another provider to manufacture your design. Once the panel is complete, you then have to make sure it is installed, programmed properly and works with your system.

Support

Support throughout the life of your panel

Innovative-IDM can work with you throughout the life of your panel, from design to retrofit. Not only will we design your custom control panel, we are a distributor for blue chip automation manufacturers and will specify quality parts in-house, cutting out the middle man. Our UL508A panel shop will then assemble and quality check your panel. We will program it and install it at your facility.

Our service doesn’t stop there. Your control panel won’t be new forever and will require troubleshooting over time. Our field service technicians are on call 24/7 to perform repairs and maintenance as needed. As components like drives or PLCs require upgrades, our technicians can help with your retrofit.

    What our customers say about us…

    Thank you for providing us with a technician who was well trained, knowledgeable, driven to achieve results, and very customer orientated.

    Able V., Maintenance Lead

    Your technician was available when needed over the weekend, which is very important to our production, even though it meant pulling him away from his personal life and family. He always had a smile while working in our plant.

    Adrian H., Shop Supervisor

    I appreciate all the hard work and effort that you provided while Cyrus was away from the office.  Good customer service, or should I say “legendary customer service” is very hard to come by nowadays.

    Anwar C., Purchasing Assistant

    This is going to be the beginning of a beautiful relationship…..complete with tracking numbers without having even asked. Nice touch.  Much obliged.

    Angie F., Purchasing
