Custom Machine Capabilities

Machine Electrical Design

Each custom machine’s electrical design is prepared by EPIC’s automation engineers who oversee the efforts of our skilled craftsmen. We follow strict compliance with NFPA National Electric Code and focus on a clean design with proper labeling. EPIC’s custom machine designers work with you throughout the electrical design process to understand and adhere to all of the existing plant standards at your manufacturing facility.

EPIC is well-versed in delivering effective machines that operate in NFPA hazardous-classified environments. In the electrical design phase, we take into account custom parameters such as:

  • Explosion proof enclosures
  • Devices
  • Fittings
  • Proper grounded and purged electrical cabinets

We design for the use of intrinsically safe devices and isolation barriers are incorporated throughout each machine’s electrical design. Data and instrument signal integrity are maintained through the proper separation of power, control, and communication wiring.

During Electrical Design, We Evaluate:

    • Existing electrical control voltage: 120 VAC versus 24 VDC
    • Electrical wire color and wire marking standards
    • Electrical fuse preference
    • Circuit breaker protective devices
    • NEMA or IEC preferred motor starters
    • Other specially-imposed requirements for electrical design

EPIC’s custom machine designers develop all necessary documentation required to maintain the custom machine. This includes electrical schematic drawings, loop diagrams, control panel layout drawings, component part numbers, and specification spreadsheets for optimal machine upkeep.
