Dimensioning and protection of control circuits
Whether robust electromechanics or highly sensitive electronics, all 24 V DC consumers are often supplied by a single regulated switched-mode power supply.
To prevent faults at a single consumer from paralyzing the entire system, the control circuit is divided into individual branches and selectively fused.
Arc Flash Studies are required in the US market to guarantee a safety work of the qualified persons.
This arc flash study shall include all detailed parameters of safety boundaries, remaining arc flash energies and enable the qualified persons to select the appropriate PPE (Personal Protection Equipment).
UL´s Industrial Control Panel Shop Program (ICP Program) allows control panel manufacturers, whether custom-build or mass-produce ICPs, to apply the UL Marks for the U.S. and Canada at their factories.
Starting February 1st 2022 each ICP Program member requires a qualified Manufacturer Technical Representative (MTR) at each physical location manufacturing industrial control panels.
The calculation of short-circuit current influences tremendously the cost of the solution. Understand why the short-circuit current withstand is so important, experience a real-life scenario and get an insight on engineering tools. After filling out the form, you will receive an email with the link to the on-demand recording.
The challenges regarding time and cost pressure in electrical engineering and control panel building are enormously high. Are you looking to save time and space in the control cabinet? Do you need some tips for efficient control panel building? Find out more in this webinar about how to save time and space with Siemens solutions: Benefit from spring loaded connections and infeed system, Profinet for control panel optimization in push buttons and indicator lights, hybrid switching technology. Get an overview of tools for efficient engineering that can help you save time in engineering processes. After filling out the form, you will receive an email with the link to the on-demand recording.
Adding communication to the control panel has many added benefits for both panel builders and end-users. In this seminar, we will explore technologies such as IO-Link and Industrial Ethernet (PROFINET) enabled pilot devices that add communication in the control panel while reducing overall wiring and assembly time.
In this lecture you will learn more about the latest changes in IEC 60204-1 Ed. 2016 about control
circuits and the reliable construction and protection of the 24 V DC control circuit. Here in
particular how overload and short-circuit in one or more branches can be reliably detected and
faulty consumer branches can be switched off, while the other consumers continue to be supplied.
What does the temperature rise evaluation involve? Learn more about technical standards and product-related requirements as well as technical risk assessment with reliable temperature rise evaluation methods for the documentation of an industrial control panel.
Overview of North American standards for SCCR, introductory basics of short-circuit and short-circuit current rating, SCCR determination for the control panels according to UL and CSA standards, practical example of SCCR determination
What effect does the current EMC Directive 2014/30 / EU have on the control cabinet? Which standards are relevant and must be considered? And how can electromagnetic phenomena be considered during the engineering phase? In this lecture we would like to explain practical tips as well as the current guideline and the relevant standards and their application.
