The industrial automation market is projected to see growth due to the adoption of digitization and the increasing number of technological devices used in process automation, warehousing and renewable energy applications. As innovations emerge and technology advances, UL is met with the challenge to develop modern safety standards that meet the needs of the connected devices used in these applications.
To keep pace with new technology, UL has helped to harmonize the industrial power supplies Standard, UL 508, the Standard for Industrial Control Equipment, with IEC 61010-2-201 to establish IEC/UL/CSA/EN 61010-2-201, the Standard for Safety Requirements for Electrical Equipment for Measurement, Control, and Laboratory Use - Part 2-201: Particular Requirements for Control Equipment.
By transitioning your power supplies to IEC/UL/CSA/EN 61010-2-201, we can help you get your power supplies to market through a simplified certification process that will save time, reduce costs and streamline access to a global marketplace. Other benefits of using one certification path include that it provides UL certification for U.S. and Canada, decreases the total number of reports and reduces follow-up services.
Furthermore, additional value exists in expanding beyond UL 508 to IEC/UL/CSA/EN 61010-2-201. You will set yourself apart in the market, be perceived as an innovator and industry leader, and streamline your path to global market access while leading at the forefront of the industry’s harmonization efforts.
