Panel Building Days
Build better control panels
Save time and money by optimizing your control panels
Panel builders face immense challenges in today’s market. With pressures to reduce costs and time to market coupled with changes in standards and a shortage in skilled labor, it’s more challenging than ever for panel builders to produce a quality product at a competitive price point. These challenges are requiring panel builders to take a new approach.
Siemens is taking a unique approach to helping panel builders overcome their challenges by focusing not just on the products we sell, but also on providing comprehensive support for panel building. We focus on supporting you with information on control panel standards (UL & NFPA), tips for better design, and engineering tools to save you time.
Panel Building Days is a one-day workshop focused on the design and engineering of industrial control panels for today’s market. In this seminar, we cover the most important topics for control panel standards in the US (NFPA70, NFPA79, UL508A) and recent changes that have been made. Additionally, we will show you the free tools and data that Siemens offers for more efficient control panel engineering. After the event, participants will have access to download our presentation value pack with detailed information from the workshop as well as additional resources for control panel design and engineering – all for free!
