Watlow®, an industry leader in the design and manufacture of complete thermal systems, recently announced that it received UL® approval on four models from the new WATCONNECT® line of control panels. The C2, C3, C4 and C5 panels are now certified for hazardous and non-hazardous locations, and they are available for immediate order and shipment. The C2 is the small non-hazardous panel, the C3 is the small hazardous panel, the C4 is the medium non-hazardous panel and the C5 is the medium hazardous panel.
Los paneles de control WATCONNECT ofrecen funciones estándar que solo suelen encontrarse en paneles personalizados, con un plazo de entrega de dos semanas. Los paneles de control incluyen los controladores Watlow de fiabilidad demostrada, como el controlador de procesos F4T con INTUITION®.
Watlow’s non-hazardous panels are UL® Listed, investigated to the requirements of UL508A, and cUL® Listed, investigated to requirements of the Canadian Electrical Code CAN/CSA2 C22.2. Both of these safety standards provide requirements for the design, construction, installation and maintenance of electrical equipment, primarily to address fire and electrical shock hazards.
The hazardous panels are UL® Listed, investigated to NFPA 496: 2008 and UL698A, and cUL® Listed, investigated to NFPA 496: 208 and CAN/CSA 22.2. NFPA 496: 2008 is the Standard for Purged and Pressurized Enclosures for Electrical Equipment and contains requirements for the
design and operation of purged and pressurized electrical equipment enclosures.
“Receiving UL® approval on our small and medium hazardous and non-hazardous panels is an important milestone in the development of our WATCONNECT product line,” said Kevin Schloemann, vice president and general manager of Watlow’s energy processes business unit. “It assures our customers that our control panels are safe in explosive environments. Our WATCONNECT line is new but our customers can feel confident that they are buying a high-quality, superior Watlow product, and this assurance is just as important to us as the specifications of the product.”
WATCONNECT control panels are manufactured in Watlow’s new facility in Houston.
