Spanish translation:armario de mando (OR caja de mando)
Explanation:
The choice of first word depends somewhat on the nature and structure of the cabinet. "Armario" means something like "closet" and is a good general choice. "Caja" would be a metal box. To be safe, I would recommend going with the first choice

armario de control


Explanation:
or "caja de control," depending on how big it is. Armario would be for something quite big.

Armario de control y desarrollo software de aplicación para sistemas de vigilancia y seguridad. (http://www.montrel-sa.es/segur.htm)

Armario de control de una instalación de climatización. (http://www.wetron.es/es/climatizacion.html) - this one has a picture and they are big.

Hope it helps.
