What does Lighting Distribution Panel mean?

A Lighting Distribution Panel is an electrical device used to transmit electrical power from the mains supply to individual lighting fixtures. It usually consists of one or more circuit breakers and contactors to protect the lighting system from overload and short circuit hazards. Lighting switchboards can also be equipped with electrical meters to measure the electrical energy usage of the lighting system. In buildings or factories, lighting switchboards are usually installed in power distribution rooms or machine rooms to ensure the safe operation of lighting systems.
