Applied components for the northern American market

Material and components, which are applied on the Northern American market, have to be in accordance with special standards and requirements of the common, national security norms. DYNAMIC Systems expands in its portfolio constantly the spectrum of high-quality materials and materialcombinations, which have the UL (Underwriters Laboratories Corp.) quality mark for accepted components, and which are officially qualified for the Northern American market.

 

Product testing by Underwriters Laboratories - UL
Underwriters Laboratories Corp. (short UL) is an independent US-American organisation, which examines and certifies products concerning certain criterias. UL therefore developes methods and norms, to check materials, components, prefabricated parts, products, devices, systems and equipment safety-related. Here must be emphasized, that UL does not "permit" products. Much more the organisation checks, whether products, components, materials and systems suffice specific requirements resp. national accepted safety-norms. If that is correct, these products may receive the chargeable UL-certification-mark.

 

Scope of the test
UL-listing dies mean, that UL representative samples of the product have been tested and that has been determined, that the product fulfills the requirements of UL.

The European comparative of the UL-certification-mark is the CE-identification. The UL-sign indeed does not have more legally weighting than a trademark. Therefore the CE-identification or the Norm Federal Communications Commission Part 15 does differentiate, which are both required by law.

When a complete product or system is rated, which contains certified components from UL the evaluation process for the end product can be rationalized.

 

UL certification-mark for applied components
Beside UL-listung and UL-classification-certification-marks for products the certification mark for material and prefabricated parts does exist. As well as both first mentioned three kinds of UL certification marks for applied components do exist: one for USA, one for Canada and one for USA and Canada combined.

For covered components of the UL-programm for applies components the installation in another device, system or end product is intended. They do not have to be installed factory at the place of use.

 

Practical relevant
Despite missing legal specification it is very difficult in practice, to bring certain materials or products without UL-certification mark at the North American market, because the reconignition in USA or Canada is missing. Simultaneously the use of non-applied materials can lead to the loss of insurance coverage. Therefore it is inevitable in many fields, to list products with UL-listing certification mark or materials with the Recognised Component certification mark.

 

By UL applies components from DYNAMIC Systems
DYNAMIC Systems expands in its portfolio constantly the spectrum of high-quality material and material combinations, which have the UL quality mark for accepted components, and which are officially qualified for the Northern American market. Therefore mainly labelmaterial for electronic- and electrical industry is affected, e.g. polyimide-labels for printed circuit board identification or langlasing polystermaterial for identification plates, for which citeria like durability and adhesion in special grounds in particular ranges of temperatures have been defined. A selection of the most important, from UL applies components by DYNAMIC Systems is listed below:

The directive of acceptability of the usage of a component in a final good are exposed in the audit report from UL as acceptance criteria. These and further information you can also find in the online-certification index from UL via www.ul.com. The listed from UL accepted components from DYNAMIC Systems GmbH can be selected with the number MH48716.
