UL Listed - The mark for the US and Canada

The UL Listed test mark is probably the most commonly used of all. UL develops and publishes safety standards. They are used as the basis for testing samples of corresponding products, and the results are compared with the safety requirements to be met. The products marked “UL Listed” have been tested accordingly and approved for consumers.

The UL mark can be found on lots of common objects: computers, heaters, smoke detectors, fire extinguishers, life jackets, and many more.
“UL Listed” products correspond to a final product (end product) or a component for field installations. These products have been tested and can be installed in accordance with applicable local installation guidelines, such as ANSI/NFPA 70 and National Electrical Code (NEC).

For our chainflex cables, this means the following:

Some of our chainflex cables are also UL Listed and thus give our customers the option of using them in other areas of the machine without having to worry about the chain or cable rack installation area.
The example of a household appliance, such as a washing machine, makes this advantage concrete. All components in a machine have different UL standards that you must meet, and the machine buyer would need to review and evaluate all of them to be allowed to operate the machine in the US. This is impossible and unrealistic for the customer. So the machine manufacturer does this work and has the unit tested as a whole at UL. Once the entire machine has been tested and certified, it is, as a whole, given a UL Listed mark. This allows the customer to plug in the machine and start using it. The situation is similar for UL Listed cables. Unlike AWM cables, UL Listed cables can be used inside and outside the chain as part of its technical specification. There is no need to worry about separate enclosures or covers.
