SCCR Toolkit Available From ABB!

WSlide Rule on a mechanical drawing of a gear box.hether you are developing a new panel or manufacturing a product which has been a proven winner for your company, it’s tempting to want to continue to use the same components time and again. However, incorporating newer components could improve your productivity, efficiency, and maximize system reliability. Don’t let the seemingly daunting task of recalculating the SCCR keep you from improving your design!

To make improving your control panel design easier, our experts have designed this toolkit take the work out of SCCR calculations so you can stay focused on the bigger picture. Click on the link in our Resource Center below to get your FREE pocket-sized slide rule to assist you with on-the-spot calculations. Our 3-step training module walks you through real-life examples of calculations. Our white paper gives an overview of the process. Be sure to stay up to date with the latest solutions and technology by subscribing to our newsletter. In addition, the published system ratings of tested and certified motor controllers are listed on the UL website, providing you another information time-saver to make control panel design even simpler.

Product Spotlight – Voltage Test Station from Grace

Grace P-S10S21-M3RX_angle-773x1024

Grace Engineering – Voltage Test Station

The Voltage Test Station (VTS) is a Permanent Electrical Safety Device that allows workers to quickly and safely validate zero electrical energy from outside the electrical enclosure.

The VTS combines a voltage indicator and test points to confidently verify zero electrical energy.

Provides a safer and more productive method of performing LOTO, while exceeding NFPA 70E and meeting the OSHA energy isolation principle.

Lockable housings add an additional layer of protection by allowing authorized personnel to safely access the test points.

Product Spotlight – Cost Effective Solution for Arc Flash Sequestration from Saginaw Engineering


Designed for use with enclosures that require additional protection against Arc Flash. This enclosure can be used within an environmentally rated enclosure to isolate the main power supply. Increasing personal protection by preventing incidental contact or exposure to the high voltage arc flash and shock hazard, and potentially reducing the PPE level for the lower risk components when the Internal Disconnect Enclosure cover is closed. The Internal Disconnect Enclosure can be easily incorporated into a new system or added to a pre-existing system on variable depth or cable operated disconnects. Aids in achieving compliance with NFPA 70E by concealing main power supply.

Available in 60 Amp, 100Amp and 400Amp versions and is very cost effective compared to typical external sequestration enclosures.
