Braude Control Panels are normally IP65 rated minimum. All panels would normally be suitable for wall mounting but can also be providedwith frames for free standing.
Panels can link to the Braude range of controllers or can be supplied with their own panel mounted display units. All panels are robust, safe and manufactured from high quality materials
Accurate temperature control is essential for modern complex manufacturing plants and production processes. Besides the high demands of the industry there is a need for simple and vigorous products for the construction and building business sector.
BRAUDE identified this important core process and permanently invests in research and development of new components. An economic and efficient measurement and control technology saves energy, increases safety and the lifecycle of our electrical heaters and systems through measurement, control, monitoring and sensors.
Example of Applications

Control Panel Technical data
IP65 enclosures normally in rigid polymer contruction with other materials available if required.
All heater control panels must include the following components
- MCB – Miniature Circuit Breakers for over current protection
- RCD – Residual Current Devices for Earth Leakage protection (essential)
- Contactors – Automatic Power Switching to the heater
- Power Isolation – Switches to isolate the heater.
Provided to suit the customer installation. 230V standard but different voltages can be used.
Normally wall mounted but can be supplied with frames if required
Heater safety and fire resistance
Sep 25 2020
Safety is of paramount importance to manufacturers of electric immersion heaters. We endeavour to make our products as safe and foolproof as we possibly can. However, no piece of electrical equipment is 100% safe unless it is protected by an RCD (Residual Current Device). Some people believe that only an MCB is required, but an MCB does not protect against earth leakage; an RCD is the only device that will provide a rapid (30msec or better) cut off in the event of earth leakage and should be fitted to every installation.POLARIS TEFLON HEATERS ARE INTRINSICALLY SAFEbecause of the materials selected for manufacture and their low watt density which ensures a lower temperature of operation than standard immersion heaters.FLAMMABILITY OF MATERIALSThe materials used in construction of the POLARIS are classified as follows:TEFLON FEP/PFA – These materials are to all intents and purposes non-flammable and will only burn in a pure oxygen atmosphere.PVDF is classified by UL Laboratories as VO self-extinguishing.
