SERVICES
Control Panel Fabrication
We are a UL 508A, 698A, and NNNY registered control panel fabrication shop and all control panels are designed, built and tested following a rigorous in-house Control Panel Fabrication Process Procedure. This written procedure along with our database software allows us to track each and every job from design phase through on-site commissioning. Quality Procedures, innovation, and working one-on-one as a Partner gives you, our customer, a value-added service that goes beyond the normal "job shop". Because of our years of experience, if your design or scope of work can be improved or if there is an error, we can catch it, notify you, and correct it before the job is shipped.

U.L. 508A - UL STANDARD FOR SAFETY FOR INDUSTRIAL CONTROL PANELS

US File No.—  NITW.E182896  Canadian File No.—  NITW7.E182896

The UL Listing Mark on an industrial control panel provides evidence of third party certification to the municipal inspection authority and to the purchaser of the panel. It shows that the panel complies with an acceptable safety standard. The Listing Mark may be applied to a wide variety of designs -- ranging from custom built to standardized designs with only minor variations.

THE UL ADVANTAGE

  • INCREASE YOUR COMPETITIVE ADVANTAGE -- Offer your customers UL Listed general purpose, metalworking machine tool, plastic injection, service entrance equipment, elevator control, and/or flame control panels and bid on jobs that specify UL Listed ICPs.
  • COVER ALL REQUIREMENTS -- Using UL Listed or Recognized components in an ICP does not guarantee or imply that the entire assembly meets all applicable safety requirements.UL's ICP builders program covers proper component usage, enclosure environmental ratings, conformance to the National Electric Code (NEC), Canadian Electrical Code (CEC), wiring and motor protection, and safety markings.
  • GREATER EFFICIENCY -- Eliminate red-tagged panels at the job site, along with the resulting delays and extra cost.
  • WIDESPREAD ACCEPTANCE -- Benefit from the widespread acceptance of the UL Mark by regulatory authorities in every jurisdiction in the United States and Canada. UL is represented on each of the NEC's 20 code-making panels and shares its expertise with code-developers working on the CEC. With your success at stake, leave nothing to chance.
  • INCREASED COMPONENT SOURCING -- In November 2003, UL and CSA International announced a formal  component acceptance agreement  that permits acceptance of specific components for use in end-products, including industrial control panels. This agreement gives UL customers even more flexibility when sourcing components because CSA Certified Components covered by the agreement can now be used in UL Listed panels in addition to UL Listed and UL Recognized Components already permitted under the scope of the ICP program.
  • TEAM WITH UL'S EXPERTS -- Build compliance into your panels.
  • CONSOLIDATE YOUR SAFETY CERTIFICATION NEEDS -- Start saving time and money with UL.
U.L. 698A - Standard for Industrial Control Panels Relating to Hazardous (Classified) Locations

 US File No.—  NRBX.E329086  Canadian File No.—  NRBX7.E329086

UL's hazardous locations industrial control panel (ICP) program allows manufacturers who custom-build and/or
mass-produce hazardous locations ICPs to apply the UL Listing Mark at their factories. Our program makes it
convenient to receive a UL Listing and allows you to maintain flexibility in panel design.

There are two types of coverage to apply the UL Listed Mark to hazardous locations panels and Hegwood Electric has NRBX. UL Category: NRBX - The control panel is located in an unclassified location with an intrinsic safety barrier located in the panel. The barrier provides intrinsically safe circuit extensions into a hazardous location. This coverage is detailed under Industrial Control Panels Relating to Hazardous Locations.

THE UL ADVANTAGE

  • INCREASE YOUR COMPETITIVE ADVANTAGE -- Offer your customers UL Listed panels for use in or relating to hazardous locations. Bid on jobs that specify UL Listed hazardous locations ICPs.
  • COVER ALL REQUIREMENTS -- Using UL Listed or Recognized components in a HazLoc ICP does not guarantee or imply that the entire assembly meets all applicable safety requirements. UL's Hazardous Locations ICP program covers proper component usage, enclosure environmental ratings, conformance to the National Electric Code (NEC), wiring and motor protection, and safety markings.
  • AVOID RED-TAGGED PANELS -- This will decrease delays and extra costs.
  • BE COMPATIBLE -- UL is represented on each of the NEC's 20 code-making panels.
  • BENEFIT FROM WIDESPREAD ACCEPTANCE -- The UL Mark is accepted by regulatory authorities in every jurisdiction in the United States and Canada.
U.L. NNNY - Control Panels and Assemblies for Use in Hazardous Locations

 US File No.—  NNNY.E357466  Canadian File No.—  NNNY7.E357466

The hazardous locations panel shop program is similar to the UL 508A panel shop program. It allows manufacturers
who custom-build and/or mass-produce hazardous locations ICP's to apply the UL Listed Mark at their factories.
The program makes it convenient to receive a UL Listing, while allowing the manufacturer to maintain flexibility in panel design.

WHAT COVERAGE IS INCLUDED?
United States and Canadian coverage for:
  • Class I, Division 1 (Explosion-Proof)
  • Class I, Division 1 (Purged/Pressurized Type X)
  • Class I, Division 2 (Purged/Pressurized Type Z)
  • Class I, Division 2 (Nonincendive)

The hazardous locations panel shop requirements are detailed in the UL Report issued at the completion of the project. The basic requirements include that the control panel shall comply with UL 508A and all components relied upon for hazardous locations protection are UL Listed, Recognized, or Classified for the applicable hazardous location.

THE UL ADVANTAGE

  • INCREASE YOUR COMPETITIVE ADVANTAGE -- Offer your customers UL Listed panels for use in or relating to hazardous locations. Bid on jobs that specify UL Listed hazardous locations ICPs.
  • COVER ALL REQUIREMENTS -- Using UL Listed or Recognized components in a HazLoc ICP does not guarantee or imply that the entire assembly meets all applicable safety requirements. UL's Hazardous Locations ICP program covers proper component usage, enclosure environmental ratings, conformance to the National Electric Code (NEC), wiring and motor protection, and safety markings.
