In the fast-paced and ever-developing market of power conversion equipment, staying ahead of the competition is key. Motor controls are critical in the development and implementation of industrial control equipment, such as factory automation and robotics as well as other applications such as printing presses, photovoltaic equipment, mining and turbines for windmills. With increased demand for specific motor-drive applications as well as global market access, sourcing an independent third-party for regulatory requirements is critical in meeting target release dates as well as budgetary targets.
Medium voltage, standby and portable controller usage in industrial or manufacturing markets such as wastewater, ventilation, pumping, mining, oil and gas are just a few of the sectors UL serves. We evaluate products for new applications on a regular basis. The majority of evaluation services are required by local inspectors, while others are used for market differentiators.
We provide you with access to a global network of technical experts who understand local, regional and national requirements and that serves as a trustworthy source for your testing, verification, certification and compliance needs for power and controls.
Provided by our industry experts, our services promote acceptance of motor control equipment throughout the world. Services include certification, test reports, import and export requirements and on-site inspection or Verification. Our local staff has in-depth knowledge of local requirements and, in many cases, participate in the process for development of local codes and acceptance criteria.
Through code interpretation we help move projects along quickly and reduce commissioning timelines. We also find solutions to the most challenging acceptance situations.
