High Power Laboratory Chalfont
Independent, ISO 17025 accredited testing, inspection and certification services (IEEE, IEC, UL and ANSI) for electric power equipment
For manufacturers and end-users of utility-scale electrical equipment, testing, inspection and certification ensure that your critical assets conform to industry and regulatory standards. The term “certification” is often used to show that a component meets a certain standard. However, it is sometimes difficult to understand a certificate’s true worth. Certification based on testing goes well beyond theory. It determines how equipment works in practice and its ability to perform correctly under extreme conditions equivalent to those experienced during service. These extreme conditions can only be generated by test laboratories that have invested in two things: proper equipment and experienced people who understand both the equipment and the latest standards.
