Watch now: Avoiding Common Challenges When Building Industrial Control Panels

Building industrial control panels (ICPs) for the global market presents several challenges. For example, manufacturers may have questions about interpreting and applying the guidelines and standards for specific markets, such as North America, or relating to the North American standards, e.g., UL 508A, Standard for Industrial Control Panels, and CSA C22.2 No. 286-17, Industrial Control Panels and Assemblies. 

With the ever-increasing pressure to expedite project times and cut costs, developing an awareness of common challenges of building ICPs can help manufacturers avoid incurring extra costs and work that may significantly impact their project’s success.
