Case study: Certification for thermal imager TR CU 020/2011 and TR CU 004/2011 | WWG
A thermal imager is a device in which principle of operation is based on converting the energy of infrared rays emanating from various objects into an electrical signal. In this case, an object emitting heat can be located remotely. The received signal is amplified many times and displayed on the device screen. The intensity of the received signal is displayed in several colors.
The list of permits required for the export of product depends on the principle of operation of the device and its scope.
The device can be used in various fields.
- Manufacturing, mining.
- Construction of buildings and structures, reconstruction.
- Security in various areas.
Thermal imager falls within the scope of TR CU 020/2011 “Electromagnetic compatibility of technical equipment” (EMC) inasmuch as:
- It emits electromagnetic oscillations during operation, which can affect the operation of communication facilities and other devices;
- It is subject to electromagnetic waves from other devices.
Confirmation of the product's compliance with the requirements of the regulations is a mandatory procedure. It is carried out in the form of certification or declaration.
Quality assessment is provided both for the batch and for the serial production according to several schemes. Each of the schemes involves laboratory testing. For their implementation, the applicant provides samples of the device. They are transferred to the laboratory, where they are assessed for compliance with all safety standards of the regulation. Based on the results of the procedure, a test report is drawn up. On its basis, a decision is made on the possibility of issuing and registering a certificate.
In addition to assessing compliance with the requirements of TR CU 020/2011, it may be necessary to complete the procedure according to other regulations. If the thermal imager is operated from an electrical network, then such equipment is subject to regulation TR CU 004/2011 "LVD". The normative act establishes requirements for low-voltage products operating from a nominal voltage of 50-1000 V.
When using a thermal imager to obtain official data (research, safety assessment), a Pattern Approval Certificate for Measuring Instruments (PAC) is additionally issued to the device.
