MIS Controls Case Study: Ventilation & Temperature Control Enclosure


May 19, 2021

The challenge

Integrating a temperature controlled ventilation system with a very limited available space in an industrial control panel equipped with variable frequency drives.

The application

PI Distribution in the food and beverage industry required the development of a new stand-alone system of cooktops that can be installed without the constraints of an overhead ventilating canopy.

MIS Solution

MIS’s approach is to clearly identify the problem, assess the needs and propose a solution. The process thereafter becomes simple and it starts by assigning a champion to carry direct communication with the customer and meet all requirements and standards. In this case, we delivered a customized solution with parts made specifically to meet the application at hand. This included:

  •    –   A primary custom enclosure to house the fusing and power into the system.
  •    –   A second custom enclosure to house the temperature controller and variable frequency drive.
  •    –   Placing components on a very dense sub-plate which also included the power supply, interfacing relays, power contactors and assorted terminals.
  •    –   Utilizing MIS cable and harness assembly expertise to produce a turnkey harness for ease of installation.
  •    –   Interconnection of the two panels [power and control].
  •    –   A streamlined production process and in-line testing with quality control steps for high-volume manufacturing application.

MIS Results

The end result is a cost-effective control system that meets the density space issue and allows for easy installation and maintenance. The customer relied on MIS Controls UL508A background and NEC adherence to create a control entity that passed the UL test and offers a cost-effective controls solution. We’re proud of our ability to service our client’s needs and offer them custom designs that resolve their current issues.
