Each assembled and wired panel undergoes a detailed checkout procedure that is developed specifically for its application.  Once completed, the quality control inspector signs and dates the check list and test documentation; which is retained with digital “as-built” panel photos in the permanent job file.

Control panel and system checkout and test procedures include, but are not limited to:

  • Verification that the correct components are properly installed, wired (and plumbed -where applicable)
  • Panel “power-up”
  • Point-to-point continuity testing
  • I/O simulation  
  • Operator Interface functionality verification
  • Terminal torque testing
  • Nameplate, labeling and wire numbering verification
  • Instrument set-up and calibration
  • Testing as required to confirm complete system functionality in accordance with the  project requirements
