Market changes

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.
Your control panel for the global market

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.
Expert tips for control cabinet design

Examples from real applications.

Broad expertise and the globally certified portfolio from Siemens make it possible to create a concept for global control panel design. We show how to incorporate various standards requirements into a single solution.

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.
