We have provided here the latest certifications of other electrical components that are related to the battery. If you need additional information or consultation, please don’t hesitate to contact us.


EN 15194 SPECIAL SEGMENT

EN 15194: 2017 - EPAC CERTIFICATIONS IN EUROPE

EN 15194: 2017 certification is the world's first comprehensive safety standard for electric-assisted bicycles. All electric-assisted bicycles must obtain this certification before it can be sold in the EU market.

BATTERY

ISO 13849-1: 2015

ISO 13849-1 (Battery) is the design requirements and evaluation methods for the software and hardware design of the battery management system (BMS).

IEC 62133

IEC 62133 is a safety certification for batteries in assisted bicycle systems. The certification tests and evaluates the mechanical and electrical properties of the battery, and logs the component supplier information of the BMS on the certification.

EN 61000-6-3: 2007+A1: 2011+AC: 2012
EN 61000-6-1: 2019

These are electromagnetic compatibility standards. EMC includes two requirements: First the electromagnetic interference generated by the BMS to the environment during normal operation cannot exceed a certain limit; Second, the equipment has a certain degree of Immunity to electromagnetic interference in the environment.

MOTOR

EN 15194

The EN15194 tests and evaluate the safety and performance of the motor on the assisted bicycle

CONTROLLER

ISO 13849-1: 2015

ISO 13849-1 defines and evaluates the design and evaluation of the controller's software and hardware.

INGRESS PROTECTION

EN 60529: 1991

The EN60529: 1991 standard is the ingress protection test and evaluation standard. The EN15194 standard requires the entire power-assisted bicycle system to be at least IPX4.

CHARGER

EN 60335-2-29: 2004

EN60335-2-29:2004 is the design and testing evaluation standard for battery chargers.

OTHER PARTS

For certification standards of other parts, please refer to the specific part standard outlined in the EN15194 respectively.

 

UL 2849 SPECIAL SEGMENT

UL 2849: 2020 - E-BIKE CERTIFICATIONS IN NORTH AMERICA

UL2849 is the design and testing standard for e-Bikes electrical systems managed by Underwriters Laboratories in North America. The standard requires the e-Bikes' drive units, batteries, battery management system (BMS), interconnection lines and power inlets and other components to be tested and evaluated.

BATTERY

UL 2580

The UL2580 standard is the certification standard specifically for battery cells. The battery cell used in a battery must first pass UL2580, so the battery pack can obtain the UL2271.

UL 991 / UL 1998

These two standards are evaluation criteria for the software and hardware design of the battery BMS, requiring failure analysis of external circuits and microprocessors, and risk analysis of the software design itself. If the battery needs to pass UL2271, the BMS used by the battery must pass UL991/UL1998.

UL 2271

UL2271 defines the testing methods and standards for rechargeable batteries. This standard tests batteries from three aspects: electrical, mechanical, and environmental.

MOTOR

UL 1004-1

The UL1004-1 standard is the certification standard for electrical motors. The standard requires the detection and evaluation of the safety voltage and dangerous voltage of the motor.

MAIN CONTROL BOARD

UL 991 / UL 1998

The UL991/UL1998 requires the main control board to perform related functional tests with the entire vehicle and conduct failure analysis and evaluate functional safety. The BMS is required to obtain the UL991/UL 1998 before the battery can obtain the UL 2271.

INGRESS PROTECTION

IEC 60529

The IEC 60529:1991 is an ingress protection testing and evaluation standard. The UL2849 standard requires all power-assisted bicycle systems to meet the IP3X waterproof requirements.

CHARGER

UL 1012 & UL 62368

UL1012&UL62368-1 are the certification standards for chargers. If the whole vehicle is to obtain the UL2849 certification, then the charger must obtain at least one of these two standards.

FAQ

What is CB certification and how to obtain CB certification?

The CB scheme is an international system operated by the IECEE for mutual recognition of test results and certificates relating to the safety of electrical and electronic components, operating equipment and products on the basis of a multilateral agreement between participating countries and certification organizations.

More than 50 countries currently take part in the CB scheme, including Austria, Belarus, Belgium, Czech Republic, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Russian Federation, Saudi Arabia, Kenya, South Africa, India, China, South Korea, Singapore, Thailand, Japan, Canada, USA, Mexico and Argentina.

The CB scheme makes it much easier for manufacturers to market their electrotechnical products at an international level. A CB certificate and the CB test report allow manufacturers to apply more quickly for the respective national certification marks for various target markets.

What is CE certification and how to obtain CE certification?

CE stands for Conformité Européenne, which translates from French to English as 'European Conformity'. CE certification is an EU safety directive that indicates that a product has passed certain tests and means that a product can legally be sold anywhere within the EU and the European Economic Area.

While for some products, CE marking can be carried out by the manufacturer themselves, other products must be tested by a company that offers CE marking services.

CE certification and marking assures your product can enter the European Union and allows free movement throughout the nearly 30 countries that make up the European Economic Area, giving you direct access to over 500 million consumers. If a product that should display a CE mark is found not to have one, the manufacturer or distributor could be fined and face expensive product recall – so compliance is essential.

What is the RoHS Directive?

The CB scheme is an international system operated by the IECEE for mutual recognition of test results and certificates relating to the safety of electrical and electronic components, operating equipment and products on the basis of a multilateral agreement between participating countries and certification organizations.

More than 50 countries currently take part in the CB scheme, including Austria, Belarus, Belgium, Czech Republic, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Russian Federation, Saudi Arabia, Kenya, South Africa, India, China, South Korea, Singapore, Thailand, Japan, Canada, USA, Mexico and Argentina.

The CB scheme makes it much easier for manufacturers to market their electrotechnical products at an international level. A CB certificate and the CB test report allow manufacturers to apply more quickly for the respective national certification marks for various target markets.

What is UL certification?

UL stands for Underwriter Laboratories, a third-party certification company that’s been around for over a century. They certify products with the aim to make the world a safer place for both workers and consumers. If the relevant sample passes the test in any given case, it merits a “listing” which can be seen online at www.ul.com. Once a unit has been UL listed it means a representative of UL has tested a sample of the product and determined that it meets UL’s requirements. They base these requirements on UL’s published and nationally recognized Standards for Safety.

UL certification is a voluntary certification. It is a non-mandatory certification in the United States. It is mainly for product safety performance testing and certification. It is the most recognized certification in the United States. Therefore, for the US market, products with UL certification mean more Business opportunities. Another reason that UL is generally recognized in the United States is that all UL-certified products. If consumers have serious consequences due to product quality problems after purchase, consumers can complain to suppliers, and suppliers can easily obtain property insurance companies. Payment.
