Working with electrical machines requires compliance with many laws and regulations. This is extremely important to guarantee your health and safety, as well as that of our own technicians. We would like to briefly explain some of these certifications to you.
Since 1 April 2011, electric vehicles only receive type approval if they meet specific safety requirements, when they are electrically built or converted into electrically powered or hybrid electric vehicles (RDW.nl). EMC R10 automotive, IP69 and NEN ISO 5006 standards are examples of specific safety requirements. What do these certifications mean?
'EMC' stands for Electro Magnetic Compatibility, 'R10' is a component and 'automotive' stands for the motor vehicle industry. The EMC R10 Automotive certification includes a variety of type approval tests. This means that a machine is tested for all European car electronics regulations such as emissions and RF immunity.
An International Protection (IP) rating is a method of indicating the degree of protection of the material of enclosures (or other objects). For example, an IP value indicates whether the material is resistant to, for example, the ingress of water, objects or dust. This is important to protect the mechanical equipment. The two numbers after the word IP indicate the classification. For example, 6 stands for dust-free and 9 for moisture-proof. This IP69K rating is one of the highest possible protections available.
This International Standard specifies a test method for determining and evaluating operator visibility. Because the batteries of our electrical machines are compact, the operator's field of vision from his cab remains optimal.
