Many innovative machine builders are successful internationally. Every country has its own demands on machine safety. In America, those demands are quite strong. Machine builders that work with the USA should have their products UL-certified. Barth Industrial Automation is UL-certified, which means our electrical enclosures and control panels are designed, created and certified according to UL 508A.
The USA holds other safety regulations than the rest of the world. The European CE certificate doesn’t suffice. In the USA, certification and registration by a third party such as UL is mandatory. Local governments strictly monitor the application of theses rules. Technical installations, control panels and enclosures are not allowed to be deployed in the USA without a UL certificate.
In designing and creating an electrical enclosure that meets the UL508A norms, a number of components should be UL-certified. These are the components you can use. Components that aren’t listed can only be used after a field test. When we build an enclosure with UL-listed components only, we can issue the certificate. The enclosures that are bound for the USA, receive a unique number and a UL label. If a product lacks a number, it can’t be deployed in America.
Barth Industrial Automation passed all exams and certifications leading up to becoming UL-listed. Many of our customers use our UL-certified enclosures. Apart from our knowledge, we also have a lot of experience in UL certification. As a UL specialist, we are audited unannounced four times per year by UL. In this way, we can guarantee our quality. In turn, you can optimally serve your American clients with UL-certified machines.
