I am currently designing an electrical control system for supply to the US, the design is based on UL508-A.

In terms of contactors, does anyone know if AC-1/AC-3 ratings are utilised in the US? And if not what is there an equivalent for AC-1 in the US?

For European designs, when speccing contactors we normally use the manufucturer's AC-1 and AC-3 ratings (depending on the use of the contactor).

In this application all the contactors will be Allen Bradley, however it appears they do not specify AC-1/AC-3 ratings for US 60Hz. Neither does UL508-A make any reference to this terminology.

Thanks in advance.
