How Can We Help ?

Power Generating Plant Control Panel

Built with Pride
Your engineered designs are the result of many hours of work. It is good to know that there is a company that can build your panels to specification and deliver a quality product that compliments your engineering effort.

The professionals at the Controls and Instrumentation Shop, a division of DCS Electronics, Inc. have been building panels for demanding customers such as Eastman Chemical, ALCOA, Kimberly Clark, UT-Battelle (DOE’s prime contractor for Oak Ridge National Labs) and Lockheed Martin since 1985. From turnkey walk-in analyzer houses with process monitoring systems to controls, instrumentation, PLC, motor and electronic panels for local or area monitoring and data gathering, we make your engineering effort a success.

Underwriters Laboratory Certified
As a certified Underwriters Laboratory (UL508A) facility, you can be assured that every panel built by The Controls and Instrumentation Shop meets the strict guidelines required by Underwriters Laboratory.

Plant Floor Operator Workstations

The Controls and Instrumentation Shop has been in the business of designing and building NEMA style plant floor operator consoles for almost 20 years. In fact, we were one of the first in the business to focus on providing ergonomically designed consoles that improved worker productivity and protected equipment from the plant floor environment. WE have many designs that we have done over the years. If you need an idea or a concept, let us recommend a design from our many custom workstations.
