Underwriters Laboratories Extends Agreements with Anritsu for LTE-A Telecoms Test Equipment

Underwriters Laboratories has extended its agreements with Anritsu as the provider for Long Term Evolution Advanced, or LTE-A, telecoms test equipment. UL's choice of Anritsu's new ME7873LA platform will enable customers to have access to the maximum coverage of newly validated test cases across the number of bands. The company now offers the necessary conformance requirements for the GCF, and is a primary laboratory for PTCRB that can offer network operator approvals for Europe, North America and beyond. In addition to offering a full range of conformance and consulting services, the company will provide Test Case validation services for Anritsu's class-leading ME7873LA RF RRM Conformance test system. The first independent LTE-A test facility in the UK represents far more than a fast, efficient and cost-effective all-in-one solution. It is the latest development of a deep understanding between two market leaders committed to the future. The company and Anritsu have a long-standing relationship and support each other's efforts in the development, validation and provision of LTE certification equipment and services. The ME7873LA is the newest RF/RRM Conformance Test system to certify UEs to GCF and PTCRB requirements, along with the capability of 3CA configuration of RF and RRM test cases. The system is the latest platform in the ME7873 series. In addition, it will support 3CA/4CA test case coverage as commercial deployment of this technology starts to accelerate.

UL Announces the Creation of New Standard for Safety for Products that Incorporate Button or Coin Cell Batteries Using Lithium Technology, Effective November 10, 2015

UL (Underwriters Laboratories) announced the creation of a new Standard for Safety for products that incorporate button or coin cell batteries using lithium technology. The new standard, UL 4200A, applies only to household-type products requiring these batteries that are used in areas where children are normally present. The standard is intended to help reduce the risk of children removing button and coin cell batteries from a product and ingesting the batteries. These lithium batteries can cause serious injury and even death to a child, so keeping them securely within a toy or household item is a needed safety precaution. Incidents involving button battery deaths and severe injuries have been increasingly prevalent. The incidents most often involve children under 4 years old. Severe problems can arise when one becomes lodged in the digestive tract or elsewhere in the body. The electric current produced by the battery can ionize saliva, forming a corrosive alkaline that damages surrounding tissues. The strength of lithium batteries makes them a common choice to provide power in small-sized products. To help make their use safer, UL created the standard to help demonstrate that any product containing a button cell battery will maintain the battery inside the product during normal use. Products that contain a removable battery are required by UL 4200A to defined methods to prevent the battery from being liberated. The standard details performance tests, including abuse tests, geared to probe a product's potential for an accidental release of a battery. UL 4200A also addresses how the product should be marked, including warnings about the potential hazard and that batteries should be kept away from children. The standard contains the specific language describing the harm batteries can cause if swallowed and the need for immediate medical attention. UL 4200A is scheduled to take effect November 10, 2015.

UL to Bring Its Unique Voice to the 2015 Wearables TechCon Conversation

UL will bring its unique voice to this year's wearables industry conference at Wearables TechCon in Santa Clara, Calif., by sharing its expertise in safety, performance and quality assurance. The worldwide market for wearable technology products is expected to increase dramatically over the next several years, with some estimates exceeding more than $100 billion in annual sales by 2018. While the possibilities for the wearable technology market are seemingly limitless, industry leaders must understand the comprehensive and mandatory evaluation and testing considerations applicable to the components and materials used in their products. Since most wearable products rely upon wireless technologies, privacy, data security and product performance will be of paramount importance as the industry continues to grow. Manufacturers and distributors of wearable technology products can take a number of actions to streamline the testing process and facilitate product approval in their markets. With a worldwide team of research and development engineers, UL helps these organizations to innovate in the design phase of their next-generation products.
