Control Panel Resources

Are you looking for detailed information on important control panel topics? Check out our white papers and technical guides on control panel standards and engineering topics

North American Market

Industrial Control Panels for US and Candian Markets

In the U.S., control panel standards are covered by UL508A Standard for industrial control panels, NFPA70 National Electric Code (NEC), and NFPA79 standard for industrial machinery. In Canada, the Canadian Electric Code (CEC), CSA C22.2 No. 286 for control panels and assemblies, and CSA C22.2 No. 301 for industrial electrical machinery are of importance to control panel manufacturers. Our white papers and technical guides provide you with the detailed information you need to stay in compliance.

IEC Markets

Industrial Control Panels for European and International Markets

IEC standards and directives dictate the design of industrial control panels in Europe and most markets outside of North America. It is important to note that these standards and directives differ greatly than UL, NFPA and CSA standards in North America. Our white papers and technical guides will provide you with the information you need to successfully export to IEC markets.
