The standard ISO 60204-1 requires that tests are carried out as a prerequisite for certification of electrical and electronic devices. The Machinery Directive 2006/42/EC is definitive in Europe, and other Directives outside Europe are based on this standard, which is valid worldwide. The prescribed checks include, amongst others:
- Checking general protection
- Checking insulation resistance
- Stress tests and measuring residual voltage
- Checking dielectric strength.
These tests including standard-compliant documentation of the results are part of the engineering services that tec.nicum offers worldwide.
