Vice President of Marketing, Amir Nizam, explains, “When we took a close look at panel builders, we noted they use off-the-shelf modular product solutions to the maximum extent possible. Most often, they use products which mount to industry standard DIN rails, directly to cabinet walls, or to sub-panels within cabinets. This reduces design and manufacturing times and costs, enabling them to efficiently and quickly provide easily maintainable solutions to their customers. Master Electronics is assisting customers in that process.”
Panel Builders may be designing and building anything from a “one-off” control system for a single customer, to products which are used by an OEM on a production basis. The DIN Rail mountable products are addressed in the front portion of the guide. The “Supporting Products” section offers product categories and suppliers from which they can select to complete solutions (panel mounted contactors, larger power supplies, connectors, wire and cable, wire harness and labeling products, etc.).
