The mark of UL approval is granted by the Underwriters Laboratories company, an independent safety science organisation dedicated to promoting safe living and working environment. With over a century of expertise in innovating safety solutions, UL helps to safeguard people, products and places, whilst facilitating trade and providing buyers with peace of mind. You can find out more about UL certification and the tests that are carried out to gain certification, by visiting the UL website.
Phase 3’s Compliance Manager, Lee Corrigan, who led the project for UL approval said, “It’s been an enjoyable challenge gaining UL approval for myself and the team, who have worked extremely hard on this project. It’s great for the product to be recognised for its safety features and high quality. We feel this will help open many doors in the US and other markets for us as it’s now one of the highest rated single pole connectors with UL approval.”
UL Certification is usually required in the USA and Canada.
Powersafe UL Connectors are rated slightly lower to match with UL Certified power cable current ratings – this helps users avoid confusion and adhere to UL testing standards. Our standard 500A connectors are downgraded to 455A and our standard 800A connector is downgraded to 615A.
In line with the adjusted ratings, UL Connectors are only available for devices with terminations below Crimp 150mm2 and Set Screw 120mm2.View the Powersafe UL Certificate
