Industrial control panels control specific processes and loads in industrial facilities. UL 508A covers industrial control panels intended for general industrial use. On April 25, 2006, UL 508A became effective. Part of this standard requires short circuit current rating to be marked on industrial control panels. Although UL 508A affects OEMs, machine builders and panel builders directly, it also affects end users through the 2005 NEC Article 409. When applied to your plant, these rules and codes determine how you specify equipment, how equipment is inspected, the relocation of equipment and equipment maintenance.

Learn what your responsibilities are when upgrading and specifying equipment for your plant, how to comply with current regulations and how to minimize the potential for equipment damage or injury to personnel from our panel of experts who will discuss:

  • How to ensure compliance when specifying equipment

  • The inspection process and how it affects the end user

  • How to ensure compliance when relocating or maintaining equipment
