The Secrets of Industrial Control Panel Design
This workshop is based on the relevant UL standard UL508A for Industrial Control Panels, the NFPA standard NFPA79
for Industrial Machinery and the relevant parts of the National Electrial Code NEC NFPA 70.
If you are looking for an update and a refresher with the strict rules and regulations on how to design an Industrial Control
Panel for North America, this course is for you. This course is designed to help you understand and to apply the constructive
standard UL508A for Industrial Control Panels as well as about the electrical equipment of machines according to the NFPA79
standard for Industrial Machinery. Not to mention, this workshop will give you a better understanding of these regulations and
help you to align your business for the most recent standard and code requirements for the North American market.
