DNV GL provides world-renowned, impartial testing and certification of PLC terminals according to international standards IEC 60495 and IEC 60481

Power Line Carrier (PLC) systems are increasingly important for transmitting essential information related to network operation and protection. As a leading test institute, DNV GL offers standards-based testing of PLC terminals. The resulting KEMA Type Test Certificate provides end-users with assurance their components meet stringent quality, safety and reliability requirements, opening up markets across the globe.

Tests available

  • Functional testing
  • Electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) testing
  • Climatic testing
  • Mechanical testing
  • Dielectric testing

Testing is carried out at our Protection and Substation Automation (PSA) lab in Arnhem, the Netherlands. All tests are performed in accordance with international standards. For PLC terminals, IEC 60495 is the most commonly required standard. For PLC coupling devices, IEC 60481 is more applicable. Upon successful completion of the relevant testing protocol, your component will receive a globally recognized KEMA Type Test Certificate.
