Safety Testing for Electrical Products

About Safety Testing for Electrical Products

Electricity revolutionized society. Nowadays, electrically powered equipment is everywhere. Safety testing for electrical products is one of the key building blocks of product safety testing in modern society. Much more than merely meeting the latest recognized standards, electrical safety testing is about protecting the people for whom a product was designed and the environment in which it will be used. DEKRA’s specialists ensure that our customers’ products not only meet all the necessary recognized standards worldwide, but that they are also completely safe to use for the people for whom they were designed and for the environments in which they were designed to be used.

By reviewing all the necessary requirements that products need to comply with according to national and international standards, our experts provide product manufacturers, importers and retail the peace of mind that goes along with the highest product safety. Our services range from specifying the product samples and documentation required, booking the test facilities across our global network to informing customers about the progress of tests or flagging the potential causes of any deficiencies.

How do we test electrical safety?

A safe and reliable power grid consists of a high diversity of grid components. DEKRA tests each of these components against the latest and applicable safety standards, such as IEC, IEEE, UL, EN and many more national deviations. We support testing, inspection and certification of almost all of these components in our laboratories or under supervision. A succesful test program can lead to the issuing of one of our highly valued and well-recognized statements, such as a DEKRA Type Test Certificate, a DEKRA Test Report, a DEKRA Inspection of Test Report and/or a DEKRA Attestation of Conformity.

Our Large Electric Laboratory in Budapest, VEIKI-VNL, is member of STL (Short Circuit Testing Liaison) and all our MV and HV statements adhere to the applicable STL guidelines.

We also provide solutions for asset integrity management for capital goods in the power generation industry.

Products in the DEKRA scope for testing, inspection and certification are:

Power generation

  • IEC,UL, CE marking testing and certification of solar / photovoltaic (PV) equipment in our accredited photovoltaic testing laboratory
  • Inspection and certification of rotating equipment (Ex)
  • Material testing & inspection of equipment in power plants, such as pressure vessels, cooling solutions contious integrity monitoring

Power transmission & distribution

  • (Type) Testing of high and medium voltage cables and accessories, switchgear, transformers, and more
  • Low voltage panels
  • Busbar trunking systems
  • Transformers
  • Cables & lines
  • Reactors
  • Charging stations

We have all gotten used to the fact that energy is safely available in our home or at work. But a safe and reliable electrical installation consists of a network of many different components, installed in your neighborhood, or right inside the building where you live or work. All these components need to perform consistently to keep the light on and in order to provide electricity where-ever, whenever you need it.

DEKRA has a long history and track record of testing electrical products and components for safety, EMC, performance, reliability and more against the latest and applicable safety standards, such as IEC, EN, UL, CSA and many more national standards and deviations. We support testing, inspection and certification of almost all of these components in our laboratories or under our supervision in manufacturers and independant laboratories.

A succesful test program can lead to the issuing of one of our highly valued and well-recognized statements, such as a DEKRA Type Test Certificate, a DEKRA Test Report, CB report, a DEKRA Inspection of Test Report and/or a DEKRA Attestation of Conformity. For critical markets and/or manufacturers that wish to complement their continuous efforts to supply safe products, DEKRA offers certification according to international schemes, such as, but not limited to KEMA-KEUR, ENEC, MET, QPS, CCC, EAC and many more.

Ask any manufacturer and they will confirm it: bringing safe products to the market is priority number one. Selling them around the world is just as important. A solid foundation for selling safe and compliant products globally starts with DEKRA. Our long history and track record in testing electrical and electronic products for safety, EMC and performance as well as our expertise in smart and wireless technologies allows you to do so. In addition, our team of global market access experts knows exactly what is needed to ensure open doors to international markets. Let us know what your export ambitions are and we will create a tailored roadmap.

Working with DEKRA gives you the certainty you need to sell your products globally. We test against the latest applicable standards, such as IEC, EN, UL, CSA and muchmore, such as test programs requested by the industry: among others EV Ready, CHAdeMO, SEMI and marine testing programs. Finishing a test program succesfully can lead to the issuing of one of our highly valued and well-recognized statements, such as a DEKRA CB report, Type Test Certificate, a DEKRA Test Report, a DEKRA Inspection of Test Report and/or a DEKRA Attestation of Conformity.

For manufacturers who wish to complement their continuous efforts to supply safe products, DEKRA offers certification according to international schemes, such as KEMA-KEUR, ENEC, MET, QPS and many more.

Among others, we test and certify the following products:

  • Machinery (robotic equipment, industrial applications, production machinery, etc.)
  • Professional electronic products (UPS systems, controllers, power supplies, sensors, etc.)
  • Laboratory equipment
  • Lighting products
  • Household appliances (commercial and non-commercial small and large kitchen appliances, whitegoods, etc. )
  • Electrical medical products (recognized by Personal Connected Healthcare Alliance Continua)
  • Telecom, AV and IT equipment (routers, communications modules, amplifiers, computers, (3D) printers, etc.)
  • Traffic & control (charging stations, traffic management systems, traffic lights, payment systems, security applications, smart sensoring, etc.)

To ensure that your products meet the latest standards, it is vital that your measuring equipment does too. When your multimeter, oscilloscope, analyzer, resistance meter or ammeter clamp is tested and calibrated accurately, making sure that your product will work as expected becomes attainable. DEKRA offers calibration services under accreditation as well as calibration services for other types of equipment. Among the products that DEKRA tests are:

  • DC and low frequency equipment (a.o. multimeters, caibrators, power supplies, capacitors, resistance meters, megohmmeters)
  • Timing and frequency equipment (a.o. frequency meters, oscilloscopes, multifunction generators, time bases)
  • High frequency equipment (a.o. radiofrequency generators, spectrum analysers, attenuators, AM and FM modulation generators)
  • Other equipment (a.o. climatic chambers, data loggers, amplifiers, wave surge simulators)
