New UL, CSA Certification for Enclosure Coolers:
The presence of the ETL-Listed Mark on an electronics enclosure cooler shows that the cooler 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. TECA announces all versions (AC and DC input) of our two most popular legacy product families (AHP-1200-Series and AHP-1800-Series) are ETL listed (Intertek) to UL & CSA safety standards. This includes our new certification status for the 24 vdc & 48 vdc input variations of these products.
Ideal thermal management for enclosures, these TECA coolers are both available for indoors, outdoors, AC input and DC input. As always, environmental mounting hardware and gasket are included. Optional drip pans, heat function and various temperature control choices are available as well. TECA now offers these legacy products as UL/CSA certified cooling solutions whether used in systems with AC or DC power input.
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.
