Do not pay for more than you need. The board production in Skjern builds your boards efficiently, carefully and delivers on time. We have streamlined production processes which ensures competitive control boards.
The board production, the automation production and the construction production are all placed in DK-6900 Skjern. The corporation between construction and production offers flexibility and eases our working processes.
No control boards leave Orbital´s production before having passed the Factory Acceptance Test (FAT) in our own testcenter. FAT is performed by our experienced and skilled technicians who can also perform Site Acceptance Test (SAT) when needed.
Industriel control boards are used for both surveillance and controlling processes within the industrial sector. It may be as control boards for production machines or for processing plants. In all control boards there are different components. Electrical, and non-electrical. The electrical components are amongst others a main switch, switches for overvoltage, power supply, transformers, terminal clamps, PLC ( Programmable Logic Controller) and various communication units. The non-electrical components for instance consist of an assembly plate on which the control board is mounted, DIN- rails and wiring channels.
The control board itself is mounted inside a size fitted control cabinet adapted to the working climate. Orbital will fit a sealed climate system inside the cabinet if the installation climate requires so. This assists the control board to perform at its best at all times.
The control cabinet itself can have 1 – 3 doors and made of plastic, fibre glas, aluminium, stainless or lacquered steel. If you choose stainless steel, the cabinets will be a AISI 304 OR AISI 316 depending on the working climate. For coastal working climate, the AISI 316 is ideal due to its resistance towards salt.
The front of the control cabinet will have different buttons for the operators to work with for easy access. The buttons can be for an Emergency stop and Reset.
It makes sense to mount a HMI panel on the front of a control cabinet. Maintenance, service and quick access is important once the control board is active.
Orbital uses HMI panels from manufacturers such as Schneider and Siemens. Orbital uses the same manufacturer for the HMI panel and the PLC unit for our customers.
The user interface and selection of options on the HMI screen itself is programmed by Orbital according to the ISA-101 standard. Orbital will of course consider the overall user friendliness.
A successful production of control boards means the boards are built accordingly to applicable standards and that power components, cables and copper rails have the precise dimensions needed, and for safety to be on point. Correct registration of numberings and names of all components is also important so Orbital operators can service them with ease and troubleshoot in a minimum of time.
The temperature in the control cabinet is also a crucial factor. In some cases a heating unit or ventilation unit is necessary due to the working climate.The lay-out for the controlling board ensures enough room for ventilation, perhaps even cooling and foreseeable wiring.
The wiring in the control board will contain the as applicable correct colours to ease service and troubleshooting within the control board.
The PLC is central in every control board . It is an industrial computer meant for harsh environment with heat, cold, dust and dampness. Its task is to monitor and control input and output.
It evaluates input and then changes output based on the algorithms it is programmed to read. PLC master many languages and Orbital use the conventional ones such as ladder logic, function block diagram, structured text and sequential function charts.
The PLC contains many different types of hardware, among others a CPU, memory and a programming unit. The PLC handles both digital and analogue input and output signals.
When you choose Orbital, you will have one personal focal point. You are welcome to telephone and e-mail your focal point when you need to. Orbital guarantees swift response. All communication from Orbital to you will always be from your personal focal point.
