Safer Laser Products

Whether you manufacture or sell CD and DVD drives, laser pointers, or Blu Ray discs - you are probably more than aware of the potential hazards of high-powered, bundled radiation in laser products. As an independent testing institute, TÜV Rheinland can check your products for full compliance. We can classify and certify your products in accordance with international standards and the prescribed DIN EN 60825 norm.

Benefits at a Glance

With product testing and certification from TÜV Rheinland:

  • Your products meet the national and international requirements of the directive for laser products
  • You get a detailed overview of the potential degree of risk and of how effective safeguards are
  • Document the reliability of your products with an independent seal
  • You boost confidence in the quality and durability of your products

 

EN 60825 Certification

The DIN EN 60825 norm classes products by their increasing degree of risk - mainly for eyes and skin. The class must be marked on the product. And Class 4 laser equipment must be equipped with emissions warning devices, which emit an audible signal in the case of power drain.

Tests for Electrical Safety of LED Lighting

  • Checks in accordance with product safety regulations ((German) Product Safety Act, ProdSG)
  • Checks in accordance with the EU Low-Voltage Directive 2006/95/EC
  • Checks in accordance with safety standards for LED lamps: DIN IEC 62 560 (draft) and IEC 62 471

Electromagnetic Compatibility (EMC) Tests

  • Checks in accordance with EMC Directive 2014/30/EU: Emission and Stability
  • Quality control throughout EMC: EN 55015, EN 61547, EN 61000-3-2, and EN 61000-3-3

Tests / Checks for Compliance with RoHS

  • Heavy metals: lead, cadmium, mercury, chromium VI
  • Critical organic substances

Quality and Usage Features of LED Lighting Systems

LED lamps are small, economical, robust, and bright. Currently, they are largely used for spot lighting. The main advantages of LEDs are their long lifespan of more than 15,000 hours, as well as their stability against impacts and switching.

Operating Requirements

Requirement checks for operating LED lighting: E DIN IEC 62 612

  • Lamp power
  • Luminous flux
  • Color temperature and color rendering
  • Lamp lifespan
  • Lumens
  • Durability of built-in ballast
  • Dimming ability
