Standardizing electrical equipment for multinational marketsMachines and plants are often exported globally and used in all kinds of markets. Are you always dealing with a vast amount of project requirements for new markets and retrofits? Are you looking for ways to integrate product innovations in existing designs?
Have you heard of the new standard in electrical engineering?
With Control Panel Design, we now offer a function in TIA Selection Tool that allows you to design and dimension the main electrical system of a machine in accordance to standards - for both IEC and North America. At the push of a button you receive the appropriate switching and protection devices for your motor, including standard-compliant cable cross-sections and short-circuit values for fuseless and fused load feeders.
Cut your costs by standardizing the engineeringYou have three levers for reducing the cost of engineering changes: know-how, tools and data, and globally certified products and systems. We help you to create a standardized solution that can be used worldwide with only minimal adjustments.

Control panel design standardization for the world market
Door couplings per UL and IEC
To protect people from electrical hazards, control panels need to be designed to ensure that no live components can be touched under normal operating conditions. The U.S. and Europe have different standards – but you can cover them all with just a single product from Siemens.
Calculating overall short-circuit current rating (SCCR) according to UL and IEC
Control panels must be designed and constructed to handle thermal and dynamic loads caused by a potential short-circuit current up to the identified limit values under acceptable conditions.
Appropriate protection from short-circuit currents is therefore essential.
Know-how from the experts
Capture the world market with the best prerequisites
If you as an electrical engineer can manage the global market efficiently and flexibly, you’ll enjoy a huge competitive advantage. A global control panel design might sound costly and time-consuming, but with help from the experts at Siemens, you’ll quickly find your way through the mass of standards and specific national features.
