Eaton offers UL508A information database

11/02/2006


Since April, there has been increased scrutiny for full compliance with NEC Article 409 and UL508A SCCR (short-circuit current rating) requirements to help prevent misapplication of control products and related equipment, suggests Eaton Corp . OEMs and others need to discover mistakes to ensure safety and prevent Underwriters Laboratories (UL) re-inspection, which could cost several thousand dollars. Eaton's electrical business has taken special steps and made a significant investment to help customers achieve full compliance with what it calls the "largest database of tested product combinations," offering over 5,000 combinations.

Eaton is also taking steps to educate customers and original equipment manufacturers on the standard via an online tutorial, access to online Knowledge Centers, and custom training at customer facilities.
