NASHVILLE, Tenn.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Schneider Electric, the global leader in the digital transformation of energy management and automation, and UL, the global safety science leader, today announced the new Extended Manufacturing Assembly Process (EMAP) enabling UL authorized assemblers to apply the UL Certification Mark to a compliant product at a location that is outside of the physical location manufacturing factories. Schneider Electric is now the first company to produce electrical distribution equipment, devices, and software using EMAP. Unveiled with the new FlexSeT switchboard, Schneider Electric has launched the industry’s first device compliant with the process’s rigorous standards. EMAP-authorized assembly sites must meet the same qualifications as a UL authorized factory through three key steps in the overall process:

Authorization of assembly sites
Issuance process of how UL authorizes and applies the UL Mark for product safety
Surveillance by which ongoing inspections occur

UL and Schneider Electric collaborated to create the Extended Manufacturing Assembly Process to enhance the assembly experience with digital integrations that offer efficiency, accuracy, and time savings. This digital process offers a first-class digital experience through the design, build and operate phases. It makes it easy to manage maintenance and updates throughout the product’s lifecycle.

Each product has a unique digital twin. Customers and maintenance workers are able to easily identify and update any parts that need replacement or updating by using a visual model. Modular design allows for more efficient installation and maintenance, without the need to learn how to use different devices.

Milan Dotlich (Vice President and General Manager Energy and Industrial Automation at UL) said that EMAP is a set of standards for the industry and provides businesses with trust. “The process we developed with Schneider Electric allows us to expand the range of cutting-edge equipment beyond a few select locations while maintaining the highest quality in safety and reliability.”

Guillaume Le Gouic Senior Vice President of Power Systems, Schneider Electric. “We’re extremely grateful to UL for their leadership and collaboration in establishing the new process, and the commitment it provides to our customers and distributors.”
