FAQ – Connectors Now Qualified for UL508A Applications

March 31, 2017
Sponsored by HARTING
Until recently, machine manufacturers who required UL 508 certification were responsible for demonstrating that connectors could be used safely in their application. This led many manufacturers to hardwire connections, which can lead to unplanned downtime and increased costs caused by miswiring. HARTING recently created a standard allows manufacturers to use connectors for the first time without worrying about compliance. 

Read this FAQ to learn:
•    How using connectors can save time and money compared to hardwiring
•    How to install connectors according to the new standard
