UL, a global leader in certification, and ELTEK Labs, a worldwide expert in electrical insulation system testing, have agreed to enhance their level of collaboration to deliver an increased service value to high voltage clients
NORTHBROOK, Ill., Aug. 11, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Two global industry leaders are teaming up to provide the transformer, motor, and generator industry with high voltage expertise, system testing and certification in a more client focused and streamlined fashion.
- UL is the global leader for certification of Electrical Insulation Systems (EIS) and has the largest certification database of electrical insulation materials and systems.
- ELTEK Labs is the world leader for EIS testing and is the only independent testing laboratory internationally recognized for EIS testing by the International Accreditation Service (IAS).
UL and ELTEK Labs have a long tradition of successful collaboration in testing and certification of EIS. The new level of collaboration is designed to increase innovation, speed to market, and improve market success of our clients.
To do this, UL and ELTEK Labs have developed a simplified approach for timely and efficient handling of HV projects. The simplified approach has UL handling the entire project from program assessment all the way to certification and includes all levels of client engagement. ELTEK will be part of the UL team providing technical and testing support to UL.
The simplified approach will provide alignment between the client, the testing lab, and the certification body, so projects will move from conception to certification quickly and smoothly
Whether your needs are for HV EIS for use in:
- motors or generators to IEC 60034-18-31 or others in the 60034-18-series.
- transformers to the newly accepted test method expected to become IEC 61857 Part 41 or IEEE C57.12.60.
