Rockwell Automation is a leader in the industry for supplying a broad range of products with high-fault SCCRs, including but not limited to: terminal blocks, power blocks, circuit breakers, contactors, disconnects and drives. These ratings allow terminal blocks and power distribution blocks to be used in conjunction with fuses, motor protection circuit breakers, and motor circuit protectors in power circuits. When you use components with SCCRs rated jointly, the process of obtaining SCCRs for UL 508A electrical panels may be simpliﬁed. All terminal blocks were granted a default 10 kA SCCR for use in power circuits (UL508A). The UL508A oﬀers criteria for determining panel SCCR based upon the component with the lowest SCCR in the power circuit, creating a limitation 10 kA for power circuits using untested terminal blocks. Many users that comply with the UL508A standard are looking to achieve overall system ratings between 25 kA and 100 kA. To assist our customers and support UL requirements, we oﬀer several types of terminal blocks tested and certiﬁed by UL with high-fault SCCRs. We also meet or exceed requirements of CSA, IEC, NEMA and other international standards. By meeting these requirements and with our global capabilities, our products can be used in the US and incorporated into equipment which will be exported around the world.
