As a control panel manufacturer, The Industrial Controls Company treats certifications and standards as a top priority during every step of the production process. As part of our commitment to adhering to our own comprehensive and rigorous standards, we’ve worked to earn and maintain qualification directly from Underwriters Laboratories to provide validation & approval services for the UL 508 & UL 508A standards. UL 508 covers industrial control devices and device accessories for starting, stopping, regulating, controlling, or protecting electric motors. For 30 years, we’ve been certifying our panels in-house, and we manufacture thousands of UL certified panels per year.
In order to be your control panel partner from project conception to final installation, our in-house specialists are trained and certified by Underwriters Laboratories to approve and validate every panel we build. We also certify your own panel designs as part of the initial panel manufacturing stages, to keep your control panel project on-track & compliant from the get-go, eliminating the need for any third-party involvement in your project.
The UL 508 Standard covers control panel devices used for any application that includes electric motors. UL 508A is a subset standard that covers industrial control panels designed for general industrial use. We design, manufacture, and self-certify UL 508A panels using UL 508 components. Our control panel design covers several applications for this standard:
- Industrial Machinery
- Crane Control
- Service Equipment
- Elevator Control
- Flame Control
- Marine Use
- HVAC & Refrigeration Equipment
- Fountain Control
- Fabrication Equipment Control
The Industrial Controls Company builds integrity and commitment into every panel we sell. To uphold that integrity, we believe that the same team that has built your panel from the ground up should be the team that tests and certifies it. In addition to industry standards testing, we subject every panel we build to our own rigorous standards with comprehensive quality audits, and include final quality checklists with every panel, so there is no question whether your panel is both certified and built to handle the application it is intended to.
Note: Effective July 1, 2020, the UL 508A Standard will have updated requirements. The Industrial Controls Company is ahead of the curve on these standards and can begin certifying to the new requirements at any time.
