Electrical control & automation

Over 50 years ago, PP C&A originally started as a control panel builder so literally have decades of experience in both the design and manufacture of electrical control panels for multiple industry sectors.

In addition, PP C&A were one of the first UK control panel builders to obtain UL approval for the supply of controls systems into North America and remain a leading authority on this subject, providing its customers with a complete solution for UL/cUL/NFPA requirements through its own capabilities and accreditations ( UL508a) and some of our technical partners whom have specialist knowledge in these areas.

UL 508A Standards

As a manufacturer of machinery, how confident are you that you are meeting the legal and technical requirements of the US and North American markets?

UL 508A can apply to any company that is supplying machinery into North America.

The UL 508A 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 and it shows that the panel complies with an acceptable safety standard.

The UL Standards page dedicated to the directive offers full guidance and analysis, along with the growth enabling benefits that the UL certification creates.
