emergency shut-off panels
Explanation:
Literally, "general life-saving panels." These are the control panels that contain the emergency shut-off (hence "life-saving") switches for the electrical system.

Thermomagnetic switches (""interruttori magnetotermici") are a standard part of electrical control systems, and often constitute a majority of the switches in emergency panels.

Cheers,
