Electronic Tap Testing

We perform critical safety tests on electronic taps to give manufacturers confidence in the safety of their product. Our testing could be a key defence if you are asked to demonstrate "that all reasonable steps" were taken to ensure a safe product was placed on the market.

Testing is carried out to EN 60335-1, and typically includes assessments of the instructions, construction, circuit boards, insulation, flammability and abnormal fault conditions. Additionally, consideration is given to the IP rating, which is appicable to the tap itself - zone 1 or zone 2. It is also appropriate to the power supply depending on its location within the final installation, although the mains power itself must not be within zones 1 or 2.

Similarly, our EMC testing services give a manufacturer greater confidence that the product will not interfere with or damage other consumer or electrical products, and are also immune to the influence of other products.

For EMC, the applicable standards are EN 55014-1 (Emissions), EN 61000-3-2 (Mains Harmonics), EN 61000-3-3 (Voltage Fluctuations) and EN 55014-2 (Immunity).
