Greenville, South Carolina, USA – aeSolutions, a UL 508a panel fabrication shop, has obtained NNNY and NRBX UL listings certifying industrial control panels for use in hazardous locations and shipped their first NNNY listed Burner Management System (BMS) panels to an oil and gas customer in Prudhoe Bay, Alaska.
UL certifies that equipment meets certain safety standards. aeSolutions pursued the extensive testing and documentation required to obtain the following additional UL listings:
- NNNY – UL listing for industrial control panels and assemblies for use in hazardous (classified) locations – Explosion proof (UL1203), Purged and Pressurized Enclosures (NFPA 496), and Nonincendive (ANSI/ISA 12.12.01).
- NRBX (698a) – UL listing for industrial control panels relating to hazardous (classified) locations – Intrinsically safe barriers for circuits located in classified areas (will not cause an ignition source)
All aeSolutions industrial control panels are built to UL 508a standards. With the recently acquired NNNY and NRBX listings, aeSolutions’ equipment is now also certified for use in hazardous locations.
When panels are designed and installed for classified locations, safety requirements go beyond the normal standards for industrial control panels. Additional listings are required by applicable codes and per the authority having jurisdiction. With these additional listings in place, aeSolutions will be able to efficiently design and install industrial control systems that meet these classified location requirements, and provide safety controls customers need to protect their people; their facilities and processes; and the environment.
