Electrical products for OEMs and OEM system suppliers run the gamut from small specialty control devices to large VFDs, MCCs, and switchgear. They also may be sub-systems of a larger piece of machinery, such as a gas turbine power plant. In our experience, control rooms for OEM products are almost always an integrated system for a customer's larger scope of work.
The ultimate use of a control room remains pretty much the same for each of our customers, with contracts typically being for multiple units.
In providing control rooms for OEMs and OEM system suppliers, we constantly strive to refine our engineering, maximizing quality and value for the customer while reducing overall costs through value engineering. We also minimize the engineering approval process and reduce manufacturing cycle times through the use of factory-trained "customer teams."
Even if the control room is engineered for a specific application, our basic structure remains highly flexible.
We can accommodate major modifications and adapt to almost any interior or interior requirement, including...
- removable wall sections
- provisions for expansion
- access for cable
- acoustic dampening
Every control room is engineered as a portable structure, totally self-supporting from the base, and can be mounted directly to framework, piers, pads, or foundations with all equipment installed.
Although most of our control rooms are fabricated from G90 galvanized steel, we also build them in other materials, including aluminum or stainless steel.
The construction is self-framing, using an interlocking panel wall and roof system with smooth exterior and interior surfaces. We protect all interior and exterior surfaces with a combination of two-part, catalyzed epoxy and polyurethane finishes.
The walls and roof are assembled on a heavy-duty welded steel base of structural shapes and beams. These are chosen and arranged to provide the engineered structural integrity and to receive any floor-mounted equipment.
Typically, the bottom of the base is supplied with a welded and sealed inner panel. This provides both weather and rodent seal, holds floor insulation, and allows for convenient building penetration for external wires and cables.
The entire base is considered a wireway because all points throughout the structure are accessible from the subfloor wireway system. It's a cost-effective wiring method that generally eliminates the need for overhead cable trays.
