For low voltage switchgear and controlgear assemblies (LV panels), quality means safety. Poor quality can lead to power outages, fires or injury, so contractors need to have complete trust in the components they buy. Our testing approach and type test certificates provide the trusted evidence you need to convince your customers of the quality of your product.
Low Voltage Testing
Our independent physical verification of LV panels is 100% based on testing, covering mechanical, dielectric, short circuit and temperature rise effects. It verifies all the normal and fault conditions your panel will experience in real-world operation. We test panels in our own labs against the IEC 61439-1 international standard at both 50 Hz and 60 Hz for global coverage, ensuring complete transparency.
We have recently developed tests for battery pack protection systems, battery management systems and fuse-contactors used in electric vehicles, to support our customers in the growing market for electric vehicles, where safety and reliability are constantly in the spotlight.
KEMA LABS tests LV components to internationally recognized standards. Further tests according to national standards and specific customer requirements are available on request.
