Ensuring your product complies with the latest regulations of the market it’s destined for can be a concern from an early stage in its development. Not only should product designers be considering it but, from a project management perspective, you will also have to arrange for a third party testing house to put your product through its paces (possibly more than once). This can be costly, time-consuming and risky as you introduce more stakeholders to the project and must coordinate them effectively.
At Blue Chip Technology, we can take care of your product’s compliance requirements through a blend of internal compliance capabilities and partnerships with trusted test houses for more specialised needs.
As befits an engineering company that has a wide variety of facilities at its disposal, we have our own EMC facility on site. We use the facility for our own product and technology testing and also offer it to our customers to enable them to assess their products. We also use a spectrum analyser to greatly improve the documentation phase of our tests.
Our in-house thermal chamber is rated from -40 to +120 degrees centigrade with humidity control. We use the chamber for our product validation process, making sure that the product works reliably over a range of temperatures, usually, over a long period of time. The chamber is large enough to house our system products and several of our boards products at the same time.
Hazardous Substances (RoHS)
Our products also comply with the European Union Directive 2002/95/EC, or the Restriction of Hazardous Substances Directive (RoHS). We conform to this directive, which restricts the use of materials such as lead and mercury, across our entire product range as standard.
As part of the turnkey service that we offer, we have a number of selected partners who we work with to secure other compliance certifications. This includes protection against dust, water, vibrations and also market-specific regulations if your product is intended for global distribution.
If you are looking for a trusted partner for your project who will ensure the necessary regulations are met and your product is certified, or if you have any questions about our service, please get in touch.
