With 2016 right around the corner, are you ready for the new standards of panel building?
The UL 60947-4 series may not have a catchy name, but it’s been in the works for at least 10 years. For decades, panel builders have struggled to navigate the waters of international standards that never quite matched up. Checking industrial control panels against four or five different standards was often tedious and frustrating, stacking up labor time on projects to make sure each panel was up to code.
UL 60947-4-1 will greatly simplify the testing process by harmonizing standards from trusted industry leaders like UL, the Canadian Standards Association (CSA), and the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC). Creating UL 60947-4 took those ten years because the committee behind it combed through every word of the protocols across these organizations, identifying and resolving the minor differences.
