...• Accredited test reports and Certificates
...• Notified Body (BIS appointed) for 2006/95/EC (LVD)
...• BIS registered consultant for machinery, conformance and compliance
...• Test facility accepted by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC)
...• Test facility accepted by the Certification & Engineering Bureau, Ontario (IC)
...• Field evaluation by Chartered Engineer

We use our engineering judgement, knowledge and experience to help resolve compliance issues that would otherwise prevent or delay certification.

A test report or certificate supplied by CRANAGE, endorsed with the Laboratory Combined MRA Mark, provides you with the following benefits:-

...• Testing to standards relevant to the target economy
...• Technical deviations to meet regional and country specific regulations

CRANAGE has been testing and evaluating electrical & electronic products for EMC & Safety since 1992 and now has several laboratories equipped to test almost any electrical product. Please see below examples of some of the products we have evaluated and the industries we support.

Medical Equipment Testing Laboratory

Accredited to test Class 1, 2a and 2b electrical medical equipment with type B, BF and CF applied parts. CRANAGE METL engineers are trained and qualified for IEC60601-1 2nd and 3rd Editions and the laboratory is approved for EN60601-1-2, EN60601-1, and EN60601-2-10.

Items tested include patient trolleys, hospital beds, wheelchairs and hoists, autoclaves, syringe pumps, ECG monitors, TENS devices, and a range of instruments for cardio-respiratory diagnostics and blood analysis.

Lighting Testing Laboratory

The team at CRANAGE work hard to protect the consumer from being exposed to unsafe products. Led by our Laboratory Manager, who is an active member of ETF-5 (Expert Task Force of the IECEE for lighting safety), we test a vast range of LED, EL and fluorescent lighting products, including dimmers, drivers and controllers, for indoor, outdoor and rough service use.

Light fittings for building sites, emergency exits, streets, warehouses, offices, shops and shopping centres, airports, prisons, kitchens, bathrooms and showers are some of the products we have tested.

Machinery Testing Laboratory

Handling small or large electrical machines up to 2 tonnes in weight, CRANAGE evaluate compliance against European and International standards and provide documentation for CE marking and product approval.

Some of the many items we have tested include industrial tools for metalworking, pumps and tank agitators, space heaters, floor scrubbers and polishers, and equipment for counting, printing, labelling and packaging.

Other Testing Laboratories

We have many more testing laboratories on our website:

...• Scientific & Laboratory
...• Household Appliances
...• Information Technology & Audio Visual
...• Security, Fire & Smoke
...• Electrical Fittings & Surge Protection
...• Mobility Aids & Assistive Technologies
...• Road & Rail
...• Energy & Environmental
...• Electronic Toys & Games

CE Marking

The CE mark is a certification that a product conforms with health, safety and environmental protection standards for products sold within Europe. It can also be found on products in the International market, making it recognisable around the world.

CE marking is complex, as each product has a different set of criteria it must meet. The team at Cranage have vast experience of the standards and testing required and are able to advise you.

CE marking shows that a manufacturer has checked their product meets the necessary requirements for the European market and is therefore compliant with legislation. Cranage have experience of dealing with a range of items, from electrical equipment to toys and medical devices.

A. Josling,

As a business we do not have the in-house expertise to correctly assess and test our EMC compliance. Cranage have been vital to fill this knowledge gap, with provided advice aimed at building long lasting business relationships. This was a welcome approach compared to other test labs, which tend to be less supportive in overcoming challenges.

Atkins,

Over the years, Cranage EMC have helped us significantly with some production and compliance testing issues but have been most useful when meeting our “off-piste” requirements when we have wanted to do unusual things like “break it” testing or calibration of specialist antennas. Knowledgeable staff and well equipped testing facilities always came through for us.

Charles Watson, Ericsson Ltd

We needed to provide an UMS Charge Code to the customer for our equipment. This was something we had not had to do, previously. Cranage provided all the information required to complete the testing, and supported the completion of all relevant documentation, in support of the application following completion of the Power Consumption tests. UMS Charge Code was successfully received, for our equipment, with no delays, from the governing body. We would use Cranage for this and any type of testing in the future, without hesitation, based on our experience of their facilities and their knowledgeable, professional engineers.

Jonathan ,

The knowledgeable staff at Cranage make custom testing simple through their detailed understanding of the standards. This enables advice to be given when aspects of the standards are going to be intentionally altered for the tests we needed to perform. Also the test instrumentation was rated above that necessary for strict compliance, this allowed us to perform much higher levels of testing than certification alone mandates, thus showing us what sort of margin there is.

‘I enjoyed meeting with you and your colleagues and wanted to say how much I appreciated not only the assistance I received for CE but the general concern that you expressed for my problem and also your help in getting aspects of it resolved’.
