Our Smart Industry services

We provide comprehensive testing and certification services according to local codes and directives as well as global industrial standards to ensure your components, machinery, and systems are ready to successfully operate within the smart factory environment. We test and certify:

Smart factories built with intelligent machines, sensors and communications protocols that are connected via networks also rely on operational and maintenance personnel to keep the plant up and running. All components, machinery and systems must therefore be tested and certified according to recognized standards to ensure employee safety. We assist you in making sure:

  • Automated machinery, robotics, and processes on the production floor, in the warehouse and throughout any commercial facility are able to properly react to unexpected human activity.
  • Electro-mechanical systems including battery-powered mobile autonomous equipment and automated guided vehicles meet national codes and directives to prevent fire, electrical shock and physical harm.
  • System and network security has been evaluated to assess the risk of potential breaches that could alter machine performance and process functions or create safety hazards and costly production shutdowns.
  • Communication between your IIoT devices and systems meets wireless radio and protocol standards to ensure interoperability needed to support the steady data flow of information upon which factory employees and administrative personnel depend.
