It took many years for industrial control panels to evolve but its business standard is finally here in the form of the UL508A. The innovation that happened from then until now wasn’t easy but the result leads to many advantages in your company’s day to day processes.
The major requirement in this system is that in 2005, the UL508A panel shop needed a short circuit rating. Unfortunately, this was what caused a setback to it then because even if this requirement makes sense, it was difficult to turn into reality. In order to these, certain costly measures were required such as destroying an expensive tool or having the need for special engineering processes. To adhere to this, they simplified the short circuit rating requirement and although it isn’t without flaws, it is found to be acceptable for now.
