We consult and support our automation customers from the electric planning and project design of systems and switch cabinets to the installation on site.

The spectrum of electrical system and switch board construction ranges from small operating devices and control panels to simple switch cabinets and to entire rows of switch cabinets. Construction extends to PC switch cabinets and high-performance switch cabinets.

All sequences in project planning and production are subject to continuous quality assurance according to ISO 9001:2015. Each switch cabinet is tested according to the applicable national and international standards before dispatch; if requested, it is wired on site and commissioned anywhere around the world.

UL certification for your security

As a UL certified switch cabinet manufacturer, Eckelmann AG (UL File E233027) and Ferrocontrol Steuerungssysteme GmbH & Co. KG (UL File E507253) are entitled to affix the UL label (mandatory in the U.S. and in Canada) to switch cabinets immediately at the production site. In this way, there is no need to undergo the elaborate and cost-intensive UL approval testing.

Schaltschränke für China

Only CCC-certified (Chinese Compulsory Certification) components are used in the construction of switch cabinet systems destined for export to China. Eckelmann AG herewith fulfils the regulations governing export to the Chinese market and continually observes negotiations concerning this matter between the EU and the Chinese authorities.
