As more applications use servo and drive controls, grounding and bonding these electrical devices is more critical. Noise related issues cost time and money, and sometimes show up as different faults on identical cabinets.Did you know you could minimize the negative impact of noise by using galvanized panels when building cabinets?
Electrical Noise Reference Manual by Rockwell Automation
Galvanized Panels Offer:
Equivalent cost to the painted versions.
Faster and easier installation of equipment (no need to remove paint and add corrosion jelly).
Improved bonding of electrical components – high frequency noise is dissipated with bonding surface area and not point grounds.
Visual confirmation of proper bonding within a cabinet – no need to remove power conversion components for paint verification.
Slightly better heat dissipation…
Rumsey is now stocking many of the most popular sizes of Hoffman back panels with a galvanized finish.
