Most facilities and design engineers of industrial control panels assume a higher risk for voltages 50V and below and often think electrical safety is only critical when system voltages are greater than or equal to 100 Volts. This leads to a mindset where everyone is heavily focused on risk mitigation tactics when safety-by-design controls are applied only to voltages of higher magnitude, leaving the control systems behind. Further, automation engineers and control system experts in manufacturing and process environments often work with control panels for process optimization while interacting heavily with low voltage components such as PLCs and other control devices inside the panels. This webinar will draw importance to unintentional exposure of electrical safety risks to design and control engineers while working primarily with low voltage devices inside the industrial control panel.
