TEXTILE INDUSTRIAL CONTROL PANELS
Wizardry manufactures custom industrial control panels.
These pictures show panels built for one long-term customer
who manufactures ~$1 billion worth of fiberglass-thread per year,
using machines controlled by Wizardry's control computers.
This shows 1/4 of the panels installed in Kunshan, China (near Shangai).
- Two 20/25 Hp variable-frequency AC motor drives.
- One 2 Hp variable-frequency AC motor drive.
- Associated circuit breakers & disconnects.
- Wizardry's PCC (Process Control Computer).
- Terminal-block area (at top) for all customer connections.
- Custom enclosures meet the customer's special footprint requirements.
Sometimes it is more cost-effective to provide a
backplate-upgrade which installs in the existing enclosure.
This saves the cost of removing old enclosures, building & installing new
enclosures, and (with careful planning) allows the renewed unit to be
directly reconnected to the existing wiring.
Our backplate-panels are manufactured & fully tested using an automated tester
(which includes AC-drive load-testing), then shipped in a fully-tested condition
(no disassembly/reassembly required).
This is an efficient way to upgrade an old unit to new control-processor technology,
new AC-drive technology, and new fuses/contactors/wiring.
This installation is in ChiaYi, Taiwan.
A small hoist was used to lift the backplate into the enclosure,
using a removable red pick-up structure (provided by Wizardry).
This crew completed 27 backplate-upgrades in 2.5 days, including wiring.
Here the unit is completely installed & wired.
All these panels are powered by Wizardry's shared-DC-bus power-supply.
