Lab as a Service

The quality of our laboratories have been praised and certified by testing laboratories such as VDE and UL. While the main purpose of our laboratories has been to test our own products, we now offer a broad range of testing services to our customers.

Our lab testing services are performed by the Quality Management (QM) LAB department.

Your benefits

With our new testing services, we want to help customers who do not have an own lab or whose internal resources are limited. By doing the tests with us, you can have a comfortable product and market launch. As we can offer both the components and the design-in services, you only have one contact partner for both.

You do not have to contact an additional testing institution and benefit from our deep understanding of your lighting solutions. We know the components and can help you to fulfill the normative requirements. Moreover, we offer competitive lead times and prices. In case of urgency, we are able to offer an express service based on availability and with additional fees.

Available tests
You can choose specific individual tests or complete certification packages.

Individual tests

How you can order tests

Please contact your local sales representative (e.g. Key Account Manager) to inquire prices, availabilities and lead times for a specific testing service.

After your project has been evaluated, we will send you the price quotation and lead times. Once the project has started and the tests are done, your contact person will send you the results.
