Control cabinet fabrication

Control cabinets contain the heart and brain of your production. We at Leadec Automation & Engineering develop the conceptual design of your control cabinets for you and manufacture them ourselves. On a 500m┬▓ workshop area, we are able to build, inspect and extensively test switchgears, control cabinets, network cabinets and special designs according to your specifications and wishes.

Reliability and high level of standardization

We support our customers all along the way: from conceptual design and project planning to production. Leadec specializes in the planning of individual control and automation solutions and has in-depth expertise in instrumentation and control (I&C), automation and production IT. Here, the focus is primarily on programming PLC, HMI and SCADA applications. In addition, we promise a high degree of standardization and absolute reliability of automation systems through closed-loop process control systems.


We adhere to the national and international standards in control cabinet fabrication and carry out a factory acceptance test (FAT) for every control cabinet. If required, we are happy to support you in the preparation of circuit diagrams and manufacturing documents (parts lists, technical drawings, documentation, etc.), resulting in a customized overall package.


With our tools TERANiS, [LuQ2] and [LuQ2]machine developed in-house, automated manufacturing processes can be planned, controlled, visualized and monitored.

I&C: We create project documents ready for execution as part of basic and detail engineering. We create electrical plans, instrumentation and control cabinets with the latest E-CAD systems such as EPLAN Electric p8 and ELCAD.

Automation: Our engineers are focused on ease of use and high operational reliability: from programming the software for the programmable logic controller (PLC) to the visualization (HMI, SCADA, PLC, DCS).

Technical advice: Leadec creates the control cabinets on a project basis according to customer specifications. In doing so, we adhere to national and international standards.

Production IT: Our team of experts supports you on your way to smart production. We provide advice on all aspects of Industry 4.0 and enable you to use the wealth of data from the Internet of Things (IoT) with comprehensive analyses.

24/7 after-sales support: We offer our customers comprehensive service with trained personnel. The after-sales service includes telephone and on-site support as well as remote maintenance.

  • Circuit Diagram Creation

    Leadec creates professional circuit diagrams for machines, plant engineering and more. We use various CAD programs such as EPLAN. With our help, our customers can build on a reliable, clear and complete documentation of the circuit diagrams.

  • Electrical Installation

    We assemble, install and wire complete manufacturing lines, individual production units and safety-relevant elements. Our range of services includes: medium and low-voltage systems, lighting systems, data transmission systems and control cabinet construction.

  • Retrofit

    It is often not necessary to replace an already running system completely. We offer you the opportunity to optimize your existing plants and processes according to the current regulations with a so-called Retrofit. With this you can save time and money, increase your efficiency and at the same time meet the latest safety standards.


What is a switch cabinet?

A switch cabinet contains the electrical and electronic components of an industrial plant, building, machine or other manufacturing equipment and is used to control technical processes. 

What are advantages of the control cabinet?

The switch cabinet offers the installed electrical engineering/electronics protection against dirt, dust, water and mechanical influences, which can occur in industrial applications or even in infrastructure. Also in the environment it protects against touching dangerous voltages, against fires and is responsible for shielding electromagnetic emissions.  

Where can a control cabinet be used?

A control cabinet is used when the electronic components of a production plant, facility or process plant are not installed directly in the machine or plant. In the industrial environment, this construct is becoming increasingly important due to increasing digitalization.

Which standards are valid for control cabinet construction?

DIN EN 61439 is the current standard for the construction of low-voltage switchgear assemblies. It lists the requirements and verifications and explains how these are to be provided. The standard applies to energy distributors, all switching and control equipment, meter and distribution cabinets for private and commercial buildings.
