Learn critical safety compliance requirements of the UL 508A Standard for industrial control panels and the new requirements found in the National Electrical Code ® (NEC) Article 409 and UL 508A Supplement B in our interactive two-day workshop. Industrial Control Panels - UL508A, I have to use the following color coding. Power Circuit Wiring Control Circuit Single Motor Load. For most items built under UL508A 24VDC color codes are not specified. The new Article 409, titled “Industrial Control Panels”, was introduced. These include Pilot Lights, Pushbuttons, and Digital Panel Meters. In section 66.5.3, the UL508A standard lists the following color coding for internal power wiring. We are a UL 508 shop and I've never heard of a UL 508 wire color coding standard. UL508A Origin, Title: Industrial Control Panels First edition 2001 Latest: Second Edition, December 2013 Current emphasis NFPA 70, The National Electrical Code (NEC), made reference to the UL508A standard in the 2005 edition. All components in power circuit must have ratings Ratings of starters are typically based on HP rating Supplement SB, Table SB4.1, provides tables of components w/o marked short circuit ratings All components in power circuit must have ratings Ratings of starters are typically based on HP rating Supplement SB, Table SB4.1, provides tables of components w/o marked short circuit ratings to UL508A, §52, 54, 60 acc. 4 EATON CORPORATION Control panel design guide Sizing the feeder Reference to UL 508A Section 32.3.1a The feeder amp rating is sized based on the sum of the amp rating of the largest branch protective device plus the full-load There is only one specific section in the standard that does require the white with blue stripe. It’s a color touch screen that provides more functionality. To enhance the appearance, Color Graphic door laminate can be added. Evaluate panel per UL508A, Supplement B (required by 4-06 if jurisdiction does not adopt 2005 NEC earlier). Color coding of wires internal to control cabinets is covered both in NFPA79 and UL508A. UL508A definition: The new Article 409, titled “Industrial Control Panels”, was introduced. For a more enhanced look and if the simple choices aren’t the best, Human Machine Interface comes in handy. UL508A Standard UL508A Origin, Title: Industrial Control Panels First edition 2001 Latest: Second Edition, December 2013 Current emphasis NFPA 70, The National Electrical Code (NEC), made reference to the UL508A standard in the 2005 edition. Trying to standardize on a "uniform" color code losses sight of a possible larger problem for those who can't distinguish colors very well, if at all. Evaluate panel per UL508A, Supplement B (required by 4-06 if jurisdiction does not adopt 2005 NEC earlier). Re: 24 vdc color code UL508A is not a code, it is a standard. However UL508A does suggest NFPA79 which also suggests white with a blue stripe.
