New UL/CSA Certification for Cold/Hot Plates:
TECA has partnered with Intertek to obtain EMC & Safety certification on Laboratory-Use Cold/Hot Plates. The AHP-301CPV, the AHP-1200CPV (includes ERGO-900), the AHP-1200CAS, and the AHP-1800CPV are newly CE Marked and certified to UL 61010-1 and CSA 22.2#61010-1-12 safety standards.
The presence of the ETL-Listed Mark (by Intertek) on an electronic appliance shows that the product has undergone and passed testing to rigorous industry product-safety requirements. It is an important step in the product cycle because it demonstrates a commitment to the safety and quality of the product.
Our cold plate products offer precise, reliable temperature testing right on your bench top. Ideal for components testing and laboratory work, these TECA products are incredibly versatile. As always, temperature-control communications software is included. Optional customizations and accessories are available as well.
To perform product safety certification testing, manufacturers are required to use Nationally Recognized Testing Laboratories (NRTL) as qualified by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA). The NRTL Program is part of OSHA’s directive to ensure products are safe for use in the U.S. workplace. It qualifies the private-sector organizations it recognizes as capable of determining whether a product meets safety standards developed by the American National Standards Institute (ANSI), Underwriters Laboratories (UL), and others.
Regarding our product safety testing, there is a choice in NRTL testing partners to conduct the certification review. TECA partners with Intertek to provide our products with the ETL Listed Mark. The ETL Listed Mark is the legal equivalent to the UL and CSA Listed Marks. A product bearing the ETL Listed Mark is determined to have met the minimum requirements of prescribed product safety standards. Intertek is an OSHA-qualified NRTL. Intertek is also accredited by the Standards Council of Canada as an accredited Testing Organization and Certification Body.
