Smaller relays enable to reduce the cabinet size by 20%
“An important development in panel construction for greenhouse horticulture is that our customers want increasingly smaller control cabinets,” says Jan Bakker, eCAD designer and work planner at Voshol Warmte-Elektrotechniek in the Netherlands.
This demand for smaller panels is one of the reasons why Bakker likes working with Omron components. Bakker: “Omron’s new Value Design products have a common compact design. The industrial relays in particular are very slim and all of the components are the same height, which allows us to save space and make the cabinets smaller. This might take a whole length off a cabinet, which saves you even more costs. They’re all just small things, but together they make an attractive package.”
