Short-circuits, heating up, electrical shock – electrical devices are always sources of danger as well. There are strict international directives and standards in force to ensure safe operation of these devices. With our tests for electrical safety, we help you to meet these standards. For more quality and more safety of your products.
Anyone who launches electrical products in the market must guarantee that they are safe – and in case of any damage, also prove how care has been taken for safety. The easiest and safest way to do so is an electrical safety test of the products according to defined standards. We offer our customers such tests - high-quality, simple and in accordance with the relevant standards.
The requirements placed on these tests are particularly stringent because electrical devices are exposed to widely different stresses during their service life. These stresses can be, for example, extreme temperatures, mechanical overstress or even radioactivity. Even the dangers that then emanate from these devices are different. Thus, short-circuits or electrical shocks or extreme heating can occur. In consequence, the devices could also get ignited and cause fires.
It is necessary to comply with certain international directives and standards to ensure safe operation of electrical devices. We help to meet these standards. In our modern laboratories, we use various testing methods to determine whether the products of our customers are able to withstand the stresses. These procedures are certified and standards-conformant. At the end, our customers get a test report - and the feeling of security that their product is adequately protected.
Low Voltage Directive (LVD)
An example is the Low Voltage Directive (LVD). The LVD, issued by the European Union, describes the tasks of importers and manufacturers, such as CE marking and also the obligation to comply with electrical safety requirements for devices with a nominal voltage between 50 and 1000 V for alternating current and between 75 and 1500 V for direct current. The most certain and common way to be in compliance with electrical safety is to perform a test in accordance with the relevant product standard.
For manufacturers who sell devices below the voltage limit, the procedure according to the Low Voltage Directive for compliance with the „Produktsicherheitsgesetz“ (ProdSg) can be used.
