The laboratory is now UKAS-accredited for IEC 62368-1:2018 / EN IEC 62368-1:2020/A11:2020; and IEC 62368-3:2017 / EN IEC 62368-3:2020 wireless product qualification testing, which applies to a broad range of product types, including tablets, routers, printers and audio-visual equipment.

The accreditation from UKAS also covers IEC 61010 test standards for scientific laboratory equipment, which ensures safety compliance and provides a route to achieving a CE mark or UKCA certification.

The investment made earlier this year expanded the geographical footprint of Element’s electrical safety testing capabilities in the UK by adding them to the Wimborne laboratory as well as laboratories in Hull and Hitchin, which already provided these services.

Matt Hopkinson, EVP at Element, said: “Our initial investment in Wimborne brought a broader range of services under one roof, reducing time and costs for customers also seeking electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) and environmental testing on their products.

“The laboratory’s UKAS accreditation for these services underpins the strength of our capabilities in this market and the quality, expertise and value we offer to customers.”

Element’s Wimborne laboratory is a European centre of excellence for EMC and environmental testing for customers in connected technologies, aerospace, military, transportation, energy and industrial manufacturing. Wimborne also offers advisory services, which reduces the time and frequency of testing prior to compliance, ensuring an effective, timely route to market.

The site’s EMC chambers, reverberation chambers and indirect lightning equipment provide unrivaled capacity to accommodate the demands of any product qualification programme.
