Engineering

PCS are more than just component suppliers. We can design and build complete control panels ready for integration into your manufacturing process. A typical control panel comprises a thyristor, solid state relay or rectifier in an enclosure, enclosure cooling, electromechanical switch gear, a transformer to match required load voltage to the actual line voltage, instrumentation for control, indication, monitoring and recording where required. We specialise mainly in electrical heating controls and rectifiers but we are not limited to these areas. Feel free to contact us on 03 9720 4522 or sales@practicalcontrol.com.au to discuss your specific needs
