Overview of Supplement SB from UL 508A
  • Paragraph SB3.2.1 states that the primary short circuit protective device for the Control Circuit is also included in the calculation for the SCCR for the Power Circuit.
  • Therefore, the SCCR of a Supplementary Protector or set of Fuses used on the primary side of a Control Power Transformer are included in the determination of the SCCR of the Control Panel.
  • Control Circuit Components downstream of these devices would not be included in the calculation of the SCCR
  • Examples of Control Circuit Components:

Control Circuit Components are not included in the Panel SCCR calculation

Overview of Supplement SB from UL 508A
  • SB4.2 - Determine the SCCR of Individual Power Circuit Components
    • From the device markings
    • From a UL Table that lists the assumed max SCCR for unmarked components
    • From Manufacturer’s UL listed Combination Motor Controller testing of multiple components
  • SB4.3 - Modify the SCCR when using Current Limiting Feeder Components
    • Review the Peak Let-through Currents
    • Current Limiting Circuit Breakers
    • Fuses
  • SB4.4 - Determine the SCCR of the Control Panel based on the lowest SCCR of any component or circuit

sb4 3 current limiting devices34
SB4.3 – Current Limiting Devices
  • Example 1: Standard Breaker
    • ED63B100 100A 25 kA @480V
    • All components downstream have a rating of at least 25 kA
    • Panel SCCR = 25 kA
  • Example 2: Current Limiting Breaker
    • CED63B100 100A 200 kA @480V
    • At 100 kA the CED63 has a peak let through current of 22 kA
    • All components downstream have a rating of at least 25 kA
    • All components have a SCCR higher than 22 kA
    • Panel SCCR = 100 kA

22 kA

100 kA

what does this mean to siemens
What does this mean to Siemens?
  • We must focus on SCCR Ratings as a competitive advantage for our customers
    • Customers will migrate to tested combinations
    • Focus will be on single manufacturers for Power Circuit Components
    • Lack of focus may cause loss of breaker sales to fuses
  • Use tested combinations as advantage to displace niche and emerging competitors
    • Testing combinations is expensive and time consuming
    • It is unlikely that Manufacturers will test with competitor’s products
    • OEMs would have to submit their panel at their expense when not using combination tested components
  • What to do when Customers request SCCRs for individual components
    • Clarify Request
      • Individual Components
      • Tested Combinations
    • Use E-mail script from SiteScape
    • Send them to our on-line Resource Center
issues comments
Issues / Comments
  • Not all States have adopted the 2005 Code
