Today, electrical devices have become a part of our lives with different models and varieties. As the place of electrical devices in our lives increases, the safety problems in terms of human and environmental health also increase in direct proportion. For this reason, LVD (Low Voltage Direction) plays an important role in the development and design of products.
CE marking must be done appropriately in order for the products to be placed on the market in EU (European Union) countries and in our country.
European Union Low Voltage Directive 73 / 23 / AT (2006 / 95 / AT); describes the general characteristics that the products covered by the directive must comply with.
In our LVD test laboratory, safety, testing and examination of the mechanical and electrical hazards that the devices may cause to humans, animals and the environment are carried out in accordance with the standards referred to with the low voltage directive, which must be made for the CE marking.
Turkish definition by Tureng Online Dictionary, Low Voltage. to detect, minimize and, if possible, reset electrical, human, environmental and property safety issues before the product is released.
Devices that pass the required tests and provide the necessary procedures are presented to the market by receiving an LVD Test Report. It is also proved within the scope of this regulation that the product is both structurally safe or complies with the relevant standards and regulations in terms of energy efficiency.
The goal is both to ensure that the manufacturer places the product safely on the market and that the end user uses the product without doubt.
LVD test reports, which are the basis of the technical dossier for CE marking, remain valid for ten years unless there is a change in the product or standard.
Some Basic LVD Standards Applied Under LVD (Low Voltage Regulation) are as follows;
- TS EN 60950-1 Information Technology Devices; Security Section 1: General Rules.
- TS EN 60598-1 Lighting Fixtures; Section 1: General Rules and Experiments.
- TS EN 60065 Safety Rules; Image, Sound and Similar Electronic Devices.
- TS EN 60335-1 Safety Rules; Home and so on. for electrical appliances used in places; Section 1: General Rules.
- TS EN 60204-1 Safety and Electrical Equipment in Machines; Section 1: General Rules.
- TS EN 61010-1 Safety features for electrical devices used in control, measurement and laboratory; Section 1: General Features.
- TS EN 62031 LED MODULES; Safety-related criteria for General Lighting.
- TS EN 62560 Lamps; Self-balancing LED lamps; Safety criteria for general lighting with a voltage greater than 50V (Volts).
WHAT IS THE NAME'S CE?
- Indicates the safety of industrial products.
- Products that do not carry this CE marking cannot travel on the market.
- Produced, imported and exported products, both on the packaging and must attach CE.
- One of the benefits of the CE marking is that it gives the exported products a transitional advantage in customs inspections.
- For the CE marking, the products must be tested according to the standards, the technical file should be prepared and the declaration should be published.
