Smart home technology isn’t exactly a new concept; it is, in fact, more of a culmination of big dreams and years of research and development. Today, what once seemed like something out of a science fiction movie has transpired into one of the world’s fastest-growing industries that is expected to be worth $53.45 billion by 2022.
As you will be well aware, Brexit continues to dominate the news agenda and will do so for the foreseeable future. Quite rightly, questions have been raised about the implications for the Eurofins E&E business, which derives a good percentage of its revenue on the back of European regulations.
I wanted to take this opportunity to share with you what I believe to be the current state of affairs.
New sections of EN50121, which target apparatus have been listed in the Official Journal of the European Union. The additions mean that apparatus which has been tested to the previous 2006 version will cease to conform from 30th November 2018.
EN55035:2017, the long-awaited replacement for EN55024, EN55103-2 and EN55020, was released in the Official Journal ( OJ) last month.
Like EN55032, it is function-based and written around that rather than being product specific. We have had the Korean version, KN35, on our UKAS schedule since January 2016. Korea adopted the 2015 version of CISPR35. Having had nearly two years’ experience of KN35 testing, this has allowed us to quickly gain accreditation for the latest requirement for EN55035 and add it to our UKAS scope.

Providing an opportunity to replicate the real world and real-life scenarios, augmented reality (AR) and virtual reality (VR) have become popular consumer and commercial technologies over recent years. From providing life-saving assistance in the medical sector, to improving complex assembly processes in our manufacturing industry, there’s no doubting the benefits this technology offers.
Where EMC interference occurs (for whatever reason) or where a product fails to meet an EMC standard (any standard, emissions or immunity test), there are actually only ever three ways to fix it.
Earlier this week, we had the pleasure of joining a line-up of experts at one of the UK’s leading events for the EMC industry – Rohde & Schwarz’s Demystifying EMC.
As of February 2018, Eurofins E&E Product Testing (UK) has acquired the entire share capital of Hursley EMC Services (HEMCS) Ltd.
In an age where we have experienced unbelievable technological progress, it would appear that transportation has largely remained in the past – attempting to play catch-up now with the likes of drones and self-driving cars.
With EMC standards across the world constantly being reviewed, it can be hard to keep up with the correct specifications that your products need to comply to. To keep you updated with the latest, we’ve compiled a list of international standards that are changing or set to be changed in 2018.
We are very pleased to announce Malcolm Musgrave will be joining us in April this year. Malcolm has been a customer of Hursley EMC for several years and his knowledge of our operations will help him quickly integrate into the team here.
Following our acquisition by Eurofins E&E earlier this year, a new expansion plan was put in place for the labs at our Trafalgar House facility. This included investment in a brand new 3m Fully Anechoic Room (FAR) and we’re delighted to share that works have been completed ahead of schedule!
Despite the global market for light emitting diodes (LED) dropping 8% in 2016, a new article from Electronics Sourcing has revealed that robust demand will drive the industry, where revenue will total $17.8 billion by 2021. The research, conducted by IC Insights, has found that price erosion was the biggest contributor to the market falling for the first time in 15 years.
Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) researchers have developed a way of sending signals from underwater to airborne devices; which could revolutionise underwater communications and marine research. In the past, communicating with a submarine or a scuba diver from land or air has been difficult, and there has been a lack of procedure for sharing data between the two. But all that could be about to change.
In recent months, the team at Eurofins Hursley have received a number of enquiries from clients asking about South Korean approvals and labelling requirements. Specs and certification can be hard to keep up with, so here’s a short round-up of changes you may not be aware of.
We’re not strangers to the way technological advancements are making big impacts on our day-to-day routines. From self-driving cars to handy appliances powered by the Internet of Things (IoT), these developments are saving us both time and money.
