LVD stands for Low Voltage Directive and stands for Low Voltage Directive. This directive was published by the European Union in 1973. In 1990 this year, CE marking is required for low-voltage devices to enter the European Union freely. In order to be able to put CE marking on their products, manufacturers should apply to test and inspection bodies to determine the suitability of their products.
According to the principles of the Low Voltage Directive, the electrical devices which are required to perform electrical safety tests are the devices that require alternating current between 50 volts and 1000 volts for operation, or direct current between 75 volts and 1500 volts.
The CE marking on products covered by the New Approach Directives is a proof that these products are suitable for European Union countries. The CE marking of the products is supported by the relevant standards. These standards determine the minimum requirements for ensuring the safety of products.
Within the scope of the harmonization studies with the European Union, necessary amendments are made in the current legal regulations in Turkey and new legal regulations are made and the relevant international standards are harmonized with the legal regulations.
In this context, especially manufacturing companies producing machinery and white goods, LVD tests are very important. Without proper compliance and safety testing for these products, products are not offered for sale both inside and outside the country. Within this framework, 60204-1 standard is important for companies producing makkina and 60335-1 standard is important for white goods producing companies. The exact names of these standards are:
- TS EN 60204-1 Safety in machines - Electrical equipment of machines - Part 1: General rules
- TS EN 60335-1 Safety rules - For household and similar electrical appliances - Section 1: General rules
Tests such as leakage current, earth continuity, insulation resistance or high voltage on all electrical devices including machinery and white goods are of great importance. In general, LVD tests are carried out for the following electrical devices: electrical appliances used in households, information technology devices, industrial devices using radio frequencies, science and medical equipment, electrical medical devices and electrical devices used in laboratories for measurement and control purposes.
LVD tests by our organization The following services are mainly provided:
