Watlow received UL approval on four models from its Watconnect line of control panels.
The C2 (small non-hazardous), C3 (small hazardous), C4 (medium non-hazardous) and C5 (medium hazardous) panels are now certified for hazardous and non-hazardous locations.
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.
