Improper short circuit ratings or no marked short circuit ratings on industrial control panels can create confusion and safety hazards. The NEC Article 409 Industrial Control Panel Short Circuit Ratings removes the confusion. With Article 409, the NEC has instituted strict and concise guidelines to facilitate the safe design, marking and installation of industrial control panels.
