The CHIPS Act will open the floodgates of funding to increase domestic integrated circuit production. For panel builders, this creates a huge opportunity to serve production-equipment OEMs and chip-fabrication facility managers.
Machine builders serving the semiconductor industry face some particularly tough requirements for power quality and reliability. Read about three technologies available in panel components that can help meet those requirements.
Plug-in technology is gaining wider acceptance among panelboard and switchboard equipment builders. They are capitalizing on the four big benefits of plug-in breakers to differentiate themselves with safer, more reliable products.
Providers of many products and services have long classified offerings as “Good, Better, or Best” to help guide buyers. That three-tier classification also works well for panel builders designing motor starting systems.
Most panel components are sourced based on electrical or functional specs, and then cost. But there are other factors to consider. Learn about three surprising benefits panel builders can realize by making smart component selections for food and beverage facilities.
