ISC Automation & UL Certified Panel Shop
ISC Automation from ISC Companies is a specialized group of electrical professionals committed to providing custom industrial control solutions.
We are a UL 508A/698A certified panel shop with in-house electrical engineers and designers experienced in drafting, building, programming, and supporting Industrial Control Panels (ICPs) for use in a variety of applications and working environments.
Using UL listed or recognized components in a control panel does not guarantee it will meet applicable UL safety requirements. The only way to ensure that the entire assembly complies with UL standards, is by having a UL certified panel shop build it.

ISC Companies UL Certification Listing Details
Our UL certifications, 508A and UL698A, relate to Industrial Control Panels (ICPs), which are factory-wired assemblies of industrial control equipment, such as motor controllers, switches, relays, and auxiliary devices. These panels may include disconnect means and motor branch-circuit protective devices. An industrial control panel does not include the controlled loads, including motors, luminaires, heaters, or utilization equipment.
UL 508A / File No. E358432
- NITW.E358432 / NITW7.E358432 Industrial Control Panels
- Certified for United States and Canada
UL 508A covers industrial control panels intended for general industrial use, operating from a voltage of 1000 volts or less and for installation in ordinary locations.
UL 698A / File No. E468806
- NRBX.E468806 / NRBX7.E468806 Industrial Control Panels Relating to Hazardous Locations
- Intrinsically safe circuit extensions, Model(s) Class I, Groups A, B, C, D; Class II, Groups E, F, G; Class III
- Certified for United States and Canada
UL 698A covers industrial control panels relating to hazardous locations. These panels and assemblies are additionally marked if intended for applications such as industrial machinery (metalworking machine tools, power press controls, and plastic injection molding machinery), crane or hoist control, service equipment use, flame control of fossil-fuel-burning equipment (including incinerators, kilns, and drying ovens), marine use, air conditioning, and refrigeration equipment
