UL Opens Printed Wiring Board Performance Testing Lab in Taipei
Oct 22 15
UL has recently officially opened a printed wiring board (PWB) performance testing lab in Taipei. Incorporating the widely tested UL746 and UL796 safety certification, the lab will benefit local PWB businesses across downstream and upstream sectors by providing a full suite of product performance testing and authentication services. From toys, automobiles, mobiles, the Internet and cloud servers to wearables and portable medical accessories, PWBs have become essential components and play an important role in the manufacturing of these products. It will mainly provide two reliability tests (CAF and IST), and SET2DIL /Delta-L for testing signal integrity. CAF (Conductive Anodic Filament) testing is designed to test PCB insulation reliability after long-term use, and has long been a key PCB and material performance assessment item for users of end products requiring superior reliability UL offers testing with eccentric loading of up to 1000 VDC and therefore meets the testing requirements of most manufacturers. IST (Interconnect Stress Test) offers a time-effective solution to testing the long-term reliability of circuit board conductivity performance. It shortens the time consumption required for traditional temperature loop tests, allowing a 12-fold decrease in time consumption for the same number of tests conducted. Through special testing and customized board design, IST enables clients to quickly test the conductivity performance of PCB products, which facilitates their accreditation and process improvement operations. SET2DIL /Delta-L is a high-frequency signal performance testing method pioneered by Intel. Designed for circuit boards with demanding signal integrity requirements, SET2DIL /Delta-L is a key testing item suitable mainly for PWB process and material assessment.
UL Introduces Safety Standard UL 2056 for Power Bank Industry
Oct 13 15
UL announced the launch of its first testing and certification services for power bank manufacturing industry at the Hong Kong Electronics Fair. Tested to UL 2056, the new program specifically addresses the global gap in safety standards for power banks, safeguarding consumers against bodily harm and property damage, as well as helps protect manufacturers from the risk of expensive recalls and damaged reputations. The requirements of UL 2056 cover power banks, sometimes also known as portable USB chargers or portable back-up battery power, which are standalone devices that incorporate batteries for mobile powering of low voltage electronic devices. The standard applies to products with their input supplied by dc power source rated maximum 60 Vdc and their output providing dc output(s) rated maximum 60 Vdc. Some testing items include electrical and mechanical testing to UL 2054, verification testing of the marked input current and marked capacity, testing of power overload of output ports as well as testing of flammability of integral PV cells (where applicable). Apart from the new service for power bank, UL is also showcasing its latest compliance solutions for new technology such as Qualcomm Quick Charge 3.0 and global market access for wireless devices, wearable as well as 3D printing products at the 35th Hong Kong Electronics Fair (Autumn Edition), Booth No: M4-A49, from now till October 16 (Friday), at the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre.
