We are proud to be one of a limited number of UL 508a approved industrial control panel builders and automation system integrators based in the UK; from our site in Southport, Merseyside.
All of our electrical control systems comply with the National Electrical Code (NEC) standards for sale and use in the US and Canada by accommodating for the difference in power systems, voltages, and frequencies.

NEC standards dictate that an electrical control panel system must accommodate for the difference in power systems, voltages, and frequencies. The National Electrical Codes (NEC) main objective is safety and in particular; fire prevention. NEC also covers the creation of electrical control panels; from the design to the build, installation, and use.
The UL 508A listing mark confirms that the electrical control systems have been inspected by an independent third party. UL 508A certification confirms that our control panels meet the strict standards for safety and fire prevention set by the NEC.
Axis Controls guarantee that all of our bespoke electrical control panels and automation systems are designed, built and installed in line with the UL 508A quality and safety standards. All of our bespoke electrical control systems and the components we use are tested and certified for safety in line with the National Electrical Code standards. To ensure all of our industrial control panels are UL 508A listed, all of the components we use are UL 508A from brands, including; Siemens, Schneider, Allen-Bradley, KB Electronics, and many more.
These components are certified under the UL 508A standards to demonstrate that they meet all of the UL requirements to protect the quality and integrity of the enclosure, whilst delivering safe operational performance.
When you invest in a UL 508a control panel, the certification covers the enclosure, the components installed within this enclosure; including internally panel-mounted components and externally mounted components as they were mounted during the manufacturing process.
The UL 508a rating applies to industrial control panels. This provides evidence that a third party inspector has checked the safety and standard of these control panels - deeming them to be acceptable. The UL 508a certification ensures that this panel will be safe to use outside of the UK.
In short, the UL 508a mark is an assurance that an independent, technical expert with no financial interest has determined this control panel to satisfy the safety requirements of the UL 508a certification. You can benefit from increased quality and efficiency by investing in UL 508a approved panels.
