If you spend any amount of time around a facility’s control panels, you’ve probably seen a label that says UL508A on it. But depending on your background or role within that facility, you might not know what that stands for. Today, I’m covering what the UL508A Standard is, and what it means to be compliant with that standard.
Having industrial automation is an obvious must, but when it comes to counting the advantages, there’s a lot of grey area.
