UN § 38.3 TESTING
The U.S. Department of Transportation regulates shipment of lithium and lithium-ion cells and batteries. Shipping generally requires certification that the cells or batteries passed UN § 38.3 Testing. Tests include altitude simulation, thermal cycling, vibration, mechanical shock, external short-circuit, impact, overcharge and forced discharge.
IEC 62133 TESTING
International safety certification for rechargeable cells and batteries is available because MPS is a CB Testing Laboratory, offering International safety certification for rechargeable cells and batteries. MPS performs the testing and UL Demko provides the national certification mark. The CB Scheme allows companies to enter international markets. We can help you to meet the special requirements for Korea, Australia, Russia, Canada and India.
RTCA DO-227 AND DO-311 TESTING
The Federal Aviation Administration requires certification to DO-227 for lithium and DO-311 for lithium-ion cells and batteries installed on aircraft. Testing is witnessed by an FAA Designated Engineering Representative. MPS serves on the committee drafting the replacement to DO-311.
