Control Panel

 

a complete operating board used for centralized monitoring and control of production processes in complexes such as industrial enterprises, electric power plants, and water-, gas-, and power-supply systems. Measuring and monitoring instruments, pilot lights, control switches, and graphic panels are arranged on the control panel so that they can be easily read and reached. In addition to panels for the process control of entire enterprises—usually known as master panels, or, in enterprises with supervisory control, as instrument panels—there are control panels for systems, shops, and units.
