What is UL-508A Certification?
A UL-508A Panel is an electrical control panel with a UL-508A Label that certifies it meets the safety standard and also UL Listed Panel Shop produces it. The construction of the entire unit has consists of several tests. Which includes its ability to safely function within the specified voltage, current and circuit ratings.
This certification applies to industrial control panels operating from a voltage of 600 volts or less. Which is in accordance with NEC, ANSI/NFPA 70.
How does UL-508A ease approvals?
When you think about the simplest, lowest cost way to provide an equipment package with third party approval. The answer is providing a UL-508A panel as part of the equipment package.
When packaged equipment is pre-approved by a third party, it’s easier for another third party to approve it. This is a big deal when an Inspector must approve a new equipment installation before anyone can use it.
Inspectors will generally approve your newly installed equipment package with a UL-508A label on your control panel because it certifies your adherence to a generally accepted safety standard.
