Distribution panel is a module of an electricity supply system which divides an electrical power feed into subsidiary circuits, while providing a protective fuse or circuit breaker for each circuit, in a common enclosure. Main switch and residual current Breakers with overcurrent protection will also be incorporated.
Distribution Panels are used in all major industries where heavy machinery is used. The purpose of distribution panel serves not only in efficient distribution of incoming power but also protect the subsidiary circuits in case of overload and short circuits. Some of the major industries included are textile, power, sugar mills, iron & steel and cement plants
