As a business we do not have the in-house expertise to correctly assess and test our EMC compliance. Cranage have been vital to fill this knowledge gap, with provided advice aimed at building long lasting business relationships. This was a welcome approach compared to other test labs, which tend to be less supportive in overcoming challenges.
Over the years, Cranage EMC have helped us significantly with some production and compliance testing issues but have been most useful when meeting our “off-piste” requirements when we have wanted to do unusual things like “break it” testing or calibration of specialist antennas. Knowledgeable staff and well equipped testing facilities always came through for us.
We needed to provide an UMS Charge Code to the customer for our equipment. This was something we had not had to do, previously. Cranage provided all the information required to complete the testing, and supported the completion of all relevant documentation, in support of the application following completion of the Power Consumption tests. UMS Charge Code was successfully received, for our equipment, with no delays, from the governing body. We would use Cranage for this and any type of testing in the future, without hesitation, based on our experience of their facilities and their knowledgeable, professional engineers.
The knowledgeable staff at Cranage make custom testing simple through their detailed understanding of the standards. This enables advice to be given when aspects of the standards are going to be intentionally altered for the tests we needed to perform. Also the test instrumentation was rated above that necessary for strict compliance, this allowed us to perform much higher levels of testing than certification alone mandates, thus showing us what sort of margin there is.
‘I enjoyed meeting with you and your colleagues and wanted to say how much I appreciated not only the assistance I received for CE but the general concern that you expressed for my problem and also your help in getting aspects of it resolved’.
‘A very quick and simple procedure to follow and a good level of comms to keep us up to speed with progress, thanks!’
‘I found everyone I dealt with at Cranage to be very knowledgeable, extremely helpful and to obviously possess a wealth of experience’.
