Certification and conformity test

Phoenix Testlab

Independent testing and certification service provider.

Phoenix Testlab carries out certification testing for series end products as well as accompanying development tests. The advantage of the latter is that any problems with the device are detected at an early stage and can be corrected during the development phase.

The device developer decides which functions are to be tested and at what point. After successful testing, the customer receives an official test report, which they can then use to apply for a certificate for their device from the PROFINET user organization (PNO). The certificates issued by the PNO are valid for three years.
