SWITCH AND control panels protect electrical devices in a 'hostile environment'. They prevent damage from moisture, dust or contact. But that is not enough. Accessories are often used for ease of use and to make the assembly of panels simpler and clearer. These usually originated from the user. It is important that these accessories meet the same requirements as those that apply to building the panel, writes Emma Ryde.
