UL-508A Certification

M.G. Newell is pleased to announce that we are now a UL-508A certified panel shop!

Congratulations to our entire staff of Controls and Automation engineers and technicians on this milestone achievement!

What is UL-508A Certification?

A UL-508A Panel is an electrical control panel with a UL-508A Label that certifies it meets the  UL-508A  safety standard and was produced by a UL Listed Panel Shop.  The construction of the entire unit has been tested, including its ability to safely function within the specified voltage, current and circuit ratings.

UL-508A certification applies to industrial control panels operating from a voltage of 600 volts or less, 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 provide 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.
