 You can verify the EPG UL# E219136 - Industrial Control Panels Relating to Hazardous Locations Here

An EPG control panel built under a UL listing no longer satisfies the requirements of it's UL listing if it is modified in an unapproved way.  Modifications can be made if the changes and parts used are reviewed by the holder of the UL file (E) number.


EPG can assist you with our Field Mod Program. This program consists of step-by-step written instructions, revised CAD drawings and labels, both of which come ready to be applied to the electrical enclosure, and either parts required to make modification or a list of parts to be used.  All documentation is associated with the original work and filed for future reference.  


Common panel modifications include:  

  • Pump changes (horsepower) 
  • Dry contact outputs
  • Additional instrumentation
  • Changes in supply voltage and/or phase
  • Modification to wiring
  • And much more

What risks are taken by not using the EPG Field Mod Program?

  • Nullifies the UL Listed status of the panel
  • Impacts the original SCCR rating of the panel
  • Troubleshooting and servicing becomes difficult due to undocumented changes
  • System becomes unreliable and even inoperable
  • Compromises the safety of staff and service personnel
  • Reduces effectiveness of circuit and component protection
  • Voids any remaining warranty


By using the EPG Field Mod Program you retain the control panel's UL listing, maintain safety standards, and have the added benefit of telephone service support.



To find out if your control panel supplier is UL Listed, ask for their E # or visit the
UL Online Certification Directory to find out.
