The standard UL508A (Industrial Control Panels) governs the entire production process for switch cabinet construction in North America up to commissioning. The standard UL698A (Hazardous Locations) forms the basis for switch cabinets which are used in particularly hazardous areas. SPANGLER is one of the few German manufacturers to have the relevant certification and the know-how to produce switchgears for use in areas with a risk of explosions.
SPANGLER labels the switch cabinets with UL-listed labels, so that the approval on-site that is usual in North America can take place as smoothly as the commissioning.
UL-listed switch cabinets are also used in South America, in the Middle East and in countries such as Indonesia, Malaysia or Japan.
