Production Safety Testing Ensures Compliance with Global Safety Standards
Because virtually all electronic devices and electrical apparatus require safety certification, manufacturers must submit samples of their products to compliance agencies and regulatory authorities to ensure they meet global standards.
This article gives an overview of the many safety standards required for certification and how advanced hipot testers have evolved to speed and simplify the compliance process. It also discusses the critical pre-testing setup and safety procedures required to ensure user safety. Finally, it describes the four types of essential hipot tests, dialectic withstand, insulation resistance, ground continuity, and ground bond testing, conducted during final production as well as the test results to look for.
