Basic tests of electrical safety

Electrical safety is a prerequisite for market approval.

Compliance with electrical safety is a prerequisite for the approval of technology products and an integral part of regulatory testing and related market approvals.

In principle, different certification regimes need to be mentioned in the field of electrical safety. While the NRTL approval covers US and Canadian regulatory testing, the so-called CB Scheme is an international system for the mutual recognition of test reports and certificates that deal with the safety of electrical and electronic components, equipment and products. Currently about 50 countries participate in this program.

The European part for electrical safety is defined by the associated EN/IEC standards. CETECOM is accredited to carry out electrical safety regulatory testing in accordance with EN-60950-1 and EN 62368-1, thus accompanying our customers on the way to market approval. These include the following tests:

  • Measurement of protective conductor resistance
  • Measurement of the leakage current and the touch current
  • High-voltage tests
  • Temperature tests
  • Power Measurements for mechanical strength
  • etc.
