Ege Test Center and LVD Testing
The LVD Test is a test that certifies the suitability of products for free circulation in the common market of the European Union. LVD testing is required for products with CE certification, such as machinery and white goods. The LVD is called the Low Voltage Directive. LVD includes high-voltage test, leakage current, ground line continuity, combustion test. These tests are carried out by engineers in laboratory environment and devices that fail in one or more of the tests are not given a qualification certificate.
The tests applied to the products within the scope of LVD Test are:
- Insulation Test
- High Voltage Test
- Physical Strength Tests
- Tests on Combustion Properties
- Leakage Current Test
- Earth Line Continuity Test
- Powder and Water Testing
LVD tests, 50 to 1000 Volts for alternating current range; for voltages ranging from 75 Volts to 1500 Volts electrical equipment intended for use apply. The purpose of this test is to protect human health and ensure safety against risks such as leakage current, high voltage or combustion.
It is important that electrical tests are performed on the products and reporting of conformity of the test results to the standards is also important. Having the elements and markings CE certificate used in the machines does not mean that the machine has CE certification. It is necessary to prove that an electrical component meets the required standards for CE certification. The LVD test is a necessary test for machines to obtain a CE mark, the test must be reported in a qualified manner and in accordance with the specified guidelines.
