EMC Testing of Automotive Devices
As a VCA Technical Service and UKAS accredited testing laboratory No. 2360, we perform UNECE Regulation 10 ‘E’ mark testing for electrical sub-assemblies (ESA's) and components, as well as devices intended for aftermarket fitment.
We can offer testing for the automotive sector at greatly reduced lead times and can act on our customer’s behalf to obtain the approval certificate from the VCA, who are the designated Type Approval authority in charge with operating the system of automotive type approvals in the UK.
All components and ESA which are related to the functions of:
• direct control of the vehicle (e.g. engine, gear, brake, suspension, steering, speed limiting, driver position, driver visibility)
• driver, passenger and other road-user protection (e.g. airbag, seat belts)
• vehicle data bus (i.e. by blocking data transmission to other safety critical functions)
• vehicle statutory data (e.g. tachograph, odometer) and functions which when disturbed cause confusion to the driver.
Are required to be Type Approved and carry the 'E' mark. 'E' marking can also be applied voluntarily to other components and ESA's.
