EMC

Electromagnetic compatibility tests are aimed at verifying protection against any electromagnetic disturbance that a product may be the victim of, and ensure that the product itself is not a source of disturbance.

  • Medical electrical equipment
  • Control devices
  • Home appliances
  • Laboratory instruments
  • Industrial systems
  • Information Technology (IT) equipment
  • Inverters for renewable energy applications
  • Electric vehicles
  • Electric toys

Electrical safety

Manufacturers are required to ensure that electrical goods are designed and constructed in such a way as to ensure protection to users, as well as people and animals in the vicinity, against dangers when using/operating such goods, or material damage due to malfunctions or the influence of external factors.

  • Medical electrical equipment
  • Control devices
  • Home appliances
  • Laboratory instruments
  • Industrial systems
    (chillers, refrigeration systems, food preservation)
  • Electronic materials
  • Inverters for renewable energy applications
    IEC 62109 – 1/2, IEC 62477 – 1, IEC 50178 – 1
  • Information Technology (IT) equipment
  • Electric toys

Power Converters

In order to export the electricity produced by renewable sources to the grid, the inverters that generate the sinusoidal waveform must comply with the legal requirements in the country where they are installed (Grid Codes), for example:

  • CEI 021 (Italy)
  • CEI 016 (Italy)
  • VDE 4105 (Germany)
  • G83 (UK)

Photovoltaic

Photovoltaic systems (panels and concentrators) are regulated by strict international electrical and product safety standards. To be able to market and install photovoltaic panels, manufacturers must ensure compliance with the appropriate legal requirements:

  • Mono- and poly-crystalline solar panels (IEC EN 61215)
  • Thin film solar panels (IEC EN 61646)
  • Concentrator photovoltaic systems (IEC EN 62108)
  • Photovoltaic module safety (IEC EN 61730-1/2)

Climatic and environmental testing

To verify performance of any equipment or material, behaviour needs to be tested in different environmental conditions. These types of tests are essential in being able to declare a range of operating temperatures.

  • Climate chamber tests: Cold
  • Climate chamber tests: Heat
  • Climate chamber tests: Damp heat
  • Climate chamber tests: Change of temperature
  • Ultraviolet radiation

Vibrations Test

Complete functioning and resistance to mechanical stress can only be verified through testing on a vibration platform. Behaviour of various types of products can be verified under sinusoidal stress, random (white noise) and to shock.

  • Railway materials and devices
  • Automotive materials and devices
  • Urban transport materials and devices
  • Active signs

Water and dust tightness testing

The IP code shown on products declares the degree of protection of their enclosures against access to hazardous inside parts and against the ingress of particles or water.

  • Electronics enclosures
  • Home appliances
  • Containers
  • Industrial enclosures
  • Industrial controls
  • Railway controls and devices
  • Automotive

Impact testing

The mechanical impact protection rating (IK) is the degree of protection provided by an appliance’s enclosure against mechanical impacts.

  • Home appliances
  • Automotive
  • Railway controls and devices
  • Industrial enclosures
  • Containers
