We are a Registered UL508A Panel Shop
At Mid States Electric, we design, engineer, and manufacture custom industrial panels, as well as install, program, test, and implement them. Because every company has its own production demands, more often than not, a standard electrical panel simply won’t do. Most companies need customized solutions that will meet their current electrical needs, while being suitable for upgrades as the business evolves and grows.
In-House Capabilities Ensure Quality Products
Because we are locally owned and have in-house engineering services, we are able to meet the demands of a broad range of industries without subcontracting the work. That puts us in complete control of the quality of the products we sell and install. We are able to build, design, and wire industrial panels of all sizes, from the basic to the complex, which more than meet all safety regulations.

What is an industrial electrical panel?
Industrial electrical panels are specialized control systems that are used to manage the distribution of electricity in an industrial setting. They are essential for ensuring the safe and efficient operation of electrical equipment and can be found in a variety of industries, from manufacturing to healthcare.
What is the difference between MCC and PCC panels?
MCC and PCC panels are two types of electrical panels that are used in commercial and industrial applications. MCC panels are typically used for distribution, while PCC panels are used for control. Both types of panels have their own advantages and disadvantages.
How important is maintenance in industrial electrical panels?
Maintenance is important in industrial electrical panels for many reasons. First, it helps to ensure that the panel is operating correctly. Second, it helps to prolong the life of the panel. Third, it helps to avoid costly repairs. Finally, it helps to improve the safety of the panel.
What components make up an industrial panel?
Our panels are comprised of many pieces and may include:
- Power Supply – Typically converts alternating current, or AC, to direct current (DC) enabling other devices within the panel to use the power.
- Transformers – These may reduce or increase AC voltage between circuits, generally from 480V AC to 120V AC.
- Disconnect Switch – Switches are used to completely disconnect the panel from its electrical source to perform repairs and maintenance safely.
- Circuit Breakers – Circuit breakers are designed to safeguard an electrical circuit from overcurrent by discontinuing the flow of electricity whenever an abnormal or dangerous current is detected. This prevents circuit damage and potential hazards.
- Relays – These devices are electronically or magnetically operated switches to connect or disconnect a circuit, and they commonly are used to pass low currents to activate higher currents.
- Overload Relay – This type of relay prevents electric motors from pulling more amperage than the overload relay is designed to handle.
- Terminal Blocks – Blocks are used as points of connecting two or more wires together and is possible to place them together. Enabling current from a single source across devices within the panel.
- Contactors – Like relays, contactors turn electrical current on and off. Though, contactors are generally larger and are used for higher currents.
- Fuses – Devices designed to protect an electric circuit from overwhelmingly high current passing through.
- Motor Drives – With a variety of types serving specific purposes, the drives primary function is to operate the connected motor.
- Motor Starters – Starters control the electrical output by the motor starting-up by combining a contactor and an overload relay.
- Ethernet Switch – This allows panel devices to communicate with each other inside the panel, such as PLCs, VFDs, and HMIs.
- Programmable Logic Controller (PLC) – PLCs are industrial computers designed to control processes in manufacturing, like assembly line machines and equipment, by monitoring sensor inputs. Then, the computer responds by controlling the outputs, like motors, lights, solenoids, etc.
