TINLEY PARK, IL (September 23, 2013) — Panduit Corp., a global leader in Unified Physical InfrastructureSM (UPI)-based solutions, and Pentair Equipment Protection Solutions, with their leading Hoffman brand of electrical enclosures, have worked together to identify best practices and tools to help manufacturers achieve greater performance, become less susceptible to EMI noise, gain up to a 40% space savings and implement best-in-class equipment protection and infrastructure management in control panels.

“Control Panel Optimization – Five Key Elements to Consider: Space Optimization, Noise Mitigation, Environmental Protection, Security and Safety” is the first in a series of white papers that will be released on describing best practices and solution tools that enable system integrators, panel designers and builders to enhance key elements of the control panel development process and end use lifecycle.

White Paper Highlights

  • How to achieve up to 40% space savings with proper panel design
  • Techniques for controlling noise inside and outside of the panel
  • Multi-layered approach to environmental protection to insure optimal system performance
  • How to match security levels to value the associated risk
  • Best practices to increase worker safety including physical protection, bonding and grounding, labeling and wire segregation

In the coming months, Panduit and Pentair Equipment Protection Solutions (Hoffman brand) will co-author five additional white papers to explore the critical concerns associated with optimizing control panels. The intent is to provide actionable guidance, tips, and tools to streamline processes while delivering innovative solutions that reduce costs and improve overall life cycle performance.

This joint effort is part of a unique partnership that leverages the quality, service, and innovation of two leading global brands to address the latest design challenges associated with equipment protection and infrastructure management for industrial automation networks and control systems.
