Need a control panel for the global market?
of an Electrical Engineer's time is spent modifying electrical designs
If you have to adapt control panels and machinery for specific market standards and directives, standardization can substantially reduce your engineering time and costs
Standardizing electrical equipment for multi-national markets.Machines and control panels are often exported globally and used in markets where standards differ. Do you constantly have to alter designs to fit various market standards such as UL, CSA and IEC? Or do you have multiple designs so that you can meet the different market requirements? With standardization, you can meet the requirements for all the standards in a single design.
Cut your costs by standardizing the engineering.There are three ways to reduce 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.
Door interlocking 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 a single solution 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.
