Cranage EMC & Safety (Testing UK)

Approved Laboratory for EMC & Product Safety Testing

Welcome to Cranage, where we use a wide range of technical standards for testing and evaluating the performance and safety of electrical and electronic equipment throughout Europe, North America and around the world. Many countries accept harmonised standards, ie. those prefixed with EN or IEC, whilst North America recognises FCC, UL and NFPA standards. We are accredited and recognised by:

  • United Kingdom Accreditation Service (UKAS)
. • United Kingdom Manufacturing Advisory Service (MAS)
..• United Kingdom BIS consultant for machinery
..• Notified Body (BIS appointed) for 2006/95/EC (LVD)
..• U.S. Federal Communications Commission (FCC)
..• Canadian Certification & Engineering Bureau, Ontario (IC)

Cranage provides specialised laboratory and field evaluation services to help you obtain product approvals for North America, Canada, Mexico and Australia as well as Continental Europe.

EMC Testing in the UK

There are many Test Houses across the UK with excellent facilities, but partnering with Cranage is about much more than testing. A host of technical services not offered by others are available, some of which can be embedded during product development and applied in advance of testing to help resolve issues that would otherwise prevent or delay certification. Despite our hands-on approach, it does not affect our independence and impartiality towards accredited testing.

Test Houses are fully equipped laboratories with specialist facilities and expertise to evaluate products within their declared scope.

We have many Laboratories for various different tests:

  - Lighting Testing
 
- Medical and Therapeutic Testing
 
- Industrial Equipment & Machinery Testing

  - Household Appliance Testing
 
- Laboratory & Scientific Testing
 
- Mobility Aids & Stairlift Testing

If for some reason, however, your particular products cannot be transported to the UK or are unable to be assessed in a laboratory, we will mobilise our facilities to perform the tests on your premises and use our knowledge and experience to obtain viable results.

North America and Canada Certification

The US and Canadian markets for electrical and electronic products are conditioned to accepting product approval marks and safety certification from a Nationally Recognised Testing Laboratory (NRTL). These labs are also recognised by the Occupational Safety & Health Administration (OSHA) to provide evaluation, testing and certification of products.

Certification

Cranage has many years of experience working with NRTL’s and our ILAC/UKAS accredited test reports can be accepted to show compliance against American (UL) and Canadian (CSA) standards. Our team of Engineers can work with you to provide assistance and reduce the assessment time for gaining certification.

The key benefits Cranage can now offer:

  • Test and evaluate products to North American standards either at Cranage, or on your premises
  • Perform the mandatory factory inspections on certified products bearing the NRTL mark
  • Evaluate “one-off’ products which are handled under ISO Type 1 certificatio
  • Fast tracking service
  • Unlimited access to qualified engineers

Existing product approval arrangements can be easily transferred subject to passing a technical review.

Products tested by Cranage and certified for use in North America include scientific instruments, professional audio equipment, vacuum cleaners, commercial laundry equipment, bottle labelling machines, electric hair straighteners and medical equipment.

G. Lloyd,

This is the first time we have worked with Cranage. We needed to perform a less common test and our traditional supplier was unable to help. We found Cranage from a general internet search and our experience from that initial contact through to receiving the final report has all been very positive. The facilities are impressive and the team friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. An all-round great service and we will use you again. Thanks.

P. Madurai,

I found the whole process of working with Cranage excellent, from the initial kick-off meeting, accepting the hardware, staging, testing right through to production of the reports flawless. The team really make sure they put the personal touch on everything they do and take time to get right first time.

Machine Safety Device Manufacture,

Cranage EMC provides us with a total support and expertise for the specialist testing of our Safety Devices for use on machines. From EMC, Electrical and Environmental testing we have used Cranage EMC Test Reports to validate our products to the latest International safety standards. The reports have been accepted by Third Party Approval bodies and also provide us with documented support for our CE marking program. Service is concise, professional and provides us with a qualified, unbiased review of our product under test from prototype to production.

Stephanie Woodcock,

Cranage always provide an excellent service for Prism Medical. Over the years Cranage have been a key part of the development process for new products ensuring that EMC testing is carried out efficiently and most importantly ensuring our product is safe to release. On behalf of the R&D Team here at Prism Medical we look forward to continuing our working relationship with Cranage in the future.

Carrie Spiers, Spiers Engineering Safety

At Spiers Engineering Safety we help our clients through the appropriate conformity assessment procedures in order that their machinery complies with the Machinery Directive (2006/42/EC). Where this machinery contains electrical or electronic parts that may generate or be affected by electromagnetic disturbance the EMC directive (2014/30/EU) also applies.

The experience, knowledge and testing carried out Cranage EMC testing Ltd. to harmonised EN standards has proved invaluable to our clients.

Dave Leith, Safeline X-ray Ltd.

As academics exploring the transfer of a prototype to a product, for a large multinational, for the first time, we were rather anxious as to the whole CE marking process. Mark and his team at Cranage, gently and skilfully guided us through the whole pre-compliance process, providing insightful and instructive solutions to any issues raised. I would certainly recommend that others consider using Cranage and their state-of-the art facility.

Jim Murrin CEO, 4Links Limited

I wish to express my genuine thanks for the way you and your team managed our recent product safety testing. In particular I was impressed by the team’s professionalism and with the high level of support and practical advice we received. Cranage EMC Testing will continue to be 4Links’ test house of choice.

Penny Ecroyd, Prism UK Medical Ltd

During the course of testing you identified a ‘spike’ which did not affect statutory compliance. With your advice, in conjunction with our electronics people, we modified the circuit board to eliminate this spike. The reliability of the circuit board was dramatically improved as a result and we believe was a significant contributor to the general exceptional reliability of our product. This reliability has had as you may imagine a direct effect on sales. We have commented on several occasions that, unlike the taxman, you have given us added value and a return on our investment’.

Stephen Clemmet, Integration Technology Ltd

‘I would like to take this opportunity to thank you and Cranage for your expertise over the last two years. Without doubt, as a result of your knowledge, our product designs have advanced significantly. Aside, our customer who has requested TUVus was in our office on Monday of this week. They saw the unit and expressed how pleased they were with Cranage’s work to complete the approvals process. Before working with Cranage, I investigated several test houses. You may be assured that Cranage is offering a first rate service and I would be pleased to be able to recommend Cranage to others’.
