Reliability with accredited testing services
DA-Group's subsidiary, Eleforss Oy, offers accredited testing services for a wide range of electronic and mobile solutions and products in its Tampere testing laboratories.
FINAS, the national accreditation body in Finland, granted Eleforss the accreditation for the scope covering electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) and radio frequency (RF) testing of electrical, electronic and radio frequency equipment. The accredited scope includes most of the key emission and immunity measurement standards as well as several harmonized standards related to the EMC and Radio Equipment Directive.
According to the accreditation, Eleforss testing laboratories T313 conform to the requirements of the SFS-EN ISO/IEC 17025 standard. An up-to-date scope of accreditation is available on FINAS web pages.
The testing facilities and laboratory equipment enable comprehensive measuring and testing services of products and systems: Electromagnetic Compatibility testing (EMC), temperature and vibration tests as well as X-ray tests. The environmental testing enables extensive tests of RF and electronic equipment and systems.
To comply with national and international market regulations, all electronic products are tested to validate their functionality, performance, safety and reliability. Type approval tests ensure products' suitability for their application in the market.
Testing and measuring is necessary during many phases of product development, manufacturing, contractual performance verification and delivery. Detailed reports of test results and observations made during testing are prepared, as required; by the standards in force (eg: ECSS) or the customer. In our processes, we focus on the importance of reliability and verifications.

On-site testing is used to perform equipment evaluation at a customer location, factory or other non-laboratory test venue. Product compliance testing in the field is used when equipment may be physically too large for a test laboratory or when special support equipment or infrastructure is needed to operate the equipment. The testing may cover various EMC, safety and machinery requirements.
DA-Group offers testing and validation services cost-effectively and even in a tight schedule.
