Innovative panel building solutions improve operational efficiency and save valuable floor space. In order to increase flexibility in manufacturing, it’s crucial to ensure that space is always available for the addition of new functionality. It is also important to build panels with new technology to significantly lower the cost of engineering – a major advantage given that these costs are estimated as almost half of the total cost of control panel installation.
Omron has devoted decades of research towards optimizing the design and construction of control panels with an eye towards improving flexibility, minimizing downtime and lowering engineering costs.
Learn the six steps from Omron to help cut costs, save time, and maximize equipment longevity.
Embrace a Slimmer Design
A slimmer design minimizes the overall panel footprint and allows panel builders to fit more functionality into the contours of a similar panel size.
Omron’s panel products are designed to help panel builders downsize their panels by 20% compared to the average panel. Businesses that take advantage of these products can benefit from space savings of up to 50% overall.
Stick to Uniform Dimensions
Predictable, standardized panel dimensions reduce dead space inside cabinets by allowing the panels to stack together more effectively.
Omron’s unified control panel designs can reduce dead space by 20 percent while simultaneously optimizing the width between wiring ducts. This improves overall space usage and helps downsize other pieces of equipment in turn.
Optimize Heat Dissipation
Improper heat dissipation can negatively impact control panel lifespan and may cause malfunctions resulting unexpected downtime.
Varying heights create dead space in panels which causes hot spots, so you can improve air circulation and heat dissipation with uniform panel heights. This will lengthen life expectancies of the panel and increases savings and reduces downtime.
Improve Vibration Resistance
Transportation and operation both cause control panels to experience significant amounts of vibration that can cause damage.
To avoid this damage, Omron developed, Push-In Plus, a robust wiring technology with secure grip that has a pull-out force of 125 N as compared with 112 N for a screw terminal block.
Make Wiring Simple & Secure
Wiring can be time-consuming and ensuring proper pull-out force can require a significant amount of effort.
Omron’s Push-In Plus technology utilizes a spring mechanism to provide a robust, firm grip that keeps wires in place with high pull-out force and low insertion force.

The perfect guides so you can maximize the service life of your control panels while simultaneously lowering engineering costs and enhancing the flexibility of your operations.
Specifications for Value Design products focus on uniform mounting height and depth, reduced overall volume and side-by-side mounting to make room for more capabilities, and wiring capabilities without tools using front access Push-In Plus wiring terminals to decrease installation time.
Simple & Easy Wiring for Panel Building
Terminal blocks with push-in plus technology help simplify wiring. It requires less insertion force and keeps wires firmly in place.
Innovating the Panel Building Process with Faster Wiring
Unified wiring methods and specifications help shorten delivery times. Easy-to-understand terminal positions enable more accurate work.
Omron can help you downsize control panels by reducing the width between wiring ducts and dead space. This provides additional space to mount devices and can help improve airflow within the cabinet resulting in better heat dissipation.
