CE mark on Quanser products

There are very strict regulations in Europe now regarding product safety. Certain equipment needs to be CE certified and comply with electromagnetic compatibility and safety standards. As we hear from our customers, it’s getting tougher and tougher for Universities to find authentic CE compliant suppliers.

Quanser's customers worldwide can have their peace of mind, knowing Quanser's equipment is now CE certified. We had all our power modules tested at their maximum load and met all safety requirements. The certification applies to the whole systems.

The whole project of CE certification took us about 3-4 months to finish. It involved a full review of all our experiments by Global Advantage International: for the electromagnetic portion the devices were put in an electromagnetic chamber where the impact on wiring and cabling was measured while running on maximum load, checking also for any effects on other electromagnetic devices and adequate shielding. For the safety testing, in the lab our devices were exposed to heating, zapping with lightning, you name it. With few minor recommendations that were promptly implemented, we proudly passed the tests. The stickers on your new equipment prove it!
