This is only part of the question. Here is the scenario. I build control panels for large meat processing equipment. These panels are made of stainless steel. Some panels control large motors and heaters which operate on 3 phase current, usually in the 50 to 150 amp range. Other panels track temperature and humidity with sensitive DC and resistive probes. I am currently working on a rare panel with both types of devices in it. The engineers have ordered a dividing plate of stainless steel placed between the two parts of this panel but it is about 10% shorter than necessary to reach the door and provide complete separation between the 3 phase and the DC sides. The whole panel is stainless steel. I would like to know if the stainless steel divider does any good at all or if it may even make things worse. Thank you for your time and consideration.
