East Country Electric Manufactures Custom Control Panels
East Country Electric entered the control panel manufacturing business after trying to sort out the problems they encountered trying to make a Pea Color Sorter work with a panel their Client had bought from a manufacturer. That manufacturer builds control panels to the client’s specifications however, communication problems in the specification process, often leads to panels that may be what the client asked for but not necessarily what the client needs. Here at East Country Electric, we combine the two to make for the perfect experience.
Testing and correcting the electrical wiring proved to be more complicated that designing the panel themselves to the Client’s specifications. East Country Electric consults with each client and creates the ladder logic used to build control panels so that when it comes time to install the panel, it works the first time and the way it’s supposed to. We have developed a customer service process to ensure the grain handling facility works how you want it, with the bells and whistles you need it to include, designed at a price you can live with.
Timing is some cases can be everything. That's why the precision of a control panel is critical in order for succesful operation. We design these control panels by sitting down with our Clients to analyze, ask questions, and be specific in what they want to happen, in what order, and design the control panel accordingly. East Country Electric has the most up to date technology to make these grain handling control panels so that if you wish, you could make adjustments just from your mobile device!
When the facility is designed to the stage of a detailed drawing, we meet with you and work out how the system components will work together. From simple things like which machines start in sequence to which system components require sensors to monitor their operation. We coach you and in designing how the system will work most efficiently with the amount of automation and monitoring that you’d like to see in your system. We go through the system step-by-step to ensure that every detail you want included gets a thorough inspection to make sure it fits into the system seamlessly.
We walk you through the “what if’s” of the system. If this sensor goes off, what happens? If this component plugs up, what happens? If the system runs out of grain, or a bin fills, or an alarm goes off, or if the dryer overheats, what happens? All of those questions get answers before we begin to build your control panel.
Walking you through how your system will operate helps us develop an electrical schematic. Then we take that information to our engineers so that they can supply us with a stamped formal logic diagram which we use to translate your ideas into a working system. The project is quoted and the panel is installed all by the same personnel so communication problems are minimized. All of the wiring and testing is done by the installers from design to start-up, the client develops a working relationship that minimizes difficulties and maximizes efficiency.
East Country Electric builds electrical control panels and supports the panel by installing wiring in commercial, industrial and agricultural buildings throughout the western provinces. From BC to Manitoba, we design and build control panels that run grain handling projects, grain drying operations, or any other agricultural operation that requires automation.
