The Centurion™ Custom Control Panel is a fully integrated control and monitoring system for a variety of applications. Control panels are designed on an engineered-to-order basis, and we can partner with you to create a user-customized, multi-application design for your specifications. We specialize in building panels for use in hazardous areas, and you can be assured that the design will include components and wiring methods to meet those standards. Applications for electric motor, electronic engine and mechanical engine-driven gas compressors and pumps are an example of the types of equipment that can be used with our control panel; however, the system lends itself to almost any control solution that you may have in mind.

The Centurion Custom Control Panel is equipped with the latest evolution in FW Murphy’s controller technology. This full-featured controller provides the stability of proven technology combined with the latest HMI touch screen for greater expandability and user interface.
