Ethernet Direct announced that its Husky series industrial Ethernet switches and Retriever series industrial media converters now comply with Underwriters Laboratories’ (UL) 508 standard. UL 508 pertains to UL safety for industrial control equipment which is used extensively in industrial applications. Industrial control equipment is required to be designed, built and evaluated for its function and safety in compliance with an established national/international standard.
Several models of Ethernet Direct Industrial Ethernet devices are compliant with UL 508, which covers the requirements for devices rated 1500 V or less; products intended for use in an ambient temperature of 0°C-40°C unless specifically indicated for use in other conditions; and industrial control panels that are assemblies of industrial control devices and other devices associated with the control of motor-operated and related industrial equipment.
Having UL 508 certification maintains the level of safety in a product that involves a risk of fire or of electric shock or injury to persons. Selected Husky HMG and HME series industrial Ethernet switches and Cobra CUE series industrial Power over Ethernet switches now comply with UL 508.
