How to align the inductive charging batteries with current standards in the US, Canada and Europe?

The inductive charging batteries have entered the market a few years: the convenience to recharge their esonerando wireless device and sockets certainly has its practical side. If we add also the charm of minimalist forms and often futuristic, it is easy to understand how this type of technology you are confirming booming. Upload induction batteries: what are the regulations governing the emissions testing of this product ? It depends. Here's why.

The Wireless charghers is an electronic and electrical product whose functions can, like all electrical / electronic products, incorporate more skills. E 'precisely the case of the wireless chargher which can lend itself to single charging function or also add the ability to transfer data: legislation to follow, however, is not unique, It varies from product functionality and the country of reference.

Here then before putting a product on the market, the process of the correct certification path must be more careful. There are more rules and guidelines to follow: in fact it is necessary to consider components, functionality and the final country to which the product is intended.

Statement on the Wireless Charges in USA

The FCC classifies wireless Charges as a radiant body "intentional radiator". The procedure for authorizing the placing on the market is to Certification. The tests to be applied to the product are those established according to “Title 47 of the Code of Federal Regulations” FCC Part 15 e Part 18 (Specifically for devices “Wireless power transfer devices”).

Normativa sul Wireless Charges in CANADA

Vehicular charger

The standard radio specification RSS-216 published in late 2014 inherent in the wireless power transfer (Wireless charging batteries) It establishes minimum requirements for the wireless power transmission devices and power management / or capacity to control and distinguishes between three types of devices based on their classification as radios ( Category I or II) or interference-causing equipment , in particular industrial , scientific and medical equipment (ISM).

Normativa sul Wireless Charges in EUROPA

In Europe, the only inductive charging batteries is not considered a radio emitter and EMC tests to which refer for the certification are those arranged for the category of membership product. If the inductive charging batteries is also designed to transmit data on the same frequency as the battery charge, then the product falls under the Directive RE (2014/53/EU) and the reference harmonized standard for certification is EN 300 330-2.

In order to adapt to these new technologies, the European Institute for Telecommunications Standards introduced in 2015, reviewing ETSI EN 300 330-2 v1.6.1. The document is short generic range devices, transmitters inductive loop, radio equipment and devices for wireless energy transfer (fixed stations, Mobile and portable) and it distinguishes the procedures to be adopted depending on the number of the functionality of the product and the frequency used by these.

Safety Aspects

In all cases cited, without classification, if the product enters in the use of the domestic sphere, They must be carried out tests and analyzes in accordance with the harmonized standard IEC 60335 or those corresponding European IN 60335-1 Ed 60335-2-6 which provide for the safety of electrical appliances for household kitchens, cookers, ovens and similar appliances for household use.

human exposure

Last but not least, are to be considered the rules that regulate the human exposure . Products must be in fact subjected to controls and tests on the radiation rate issued to preserve the health of harmful sources. , For example appliances, It applies the harmonized standard EN 62233 “Measurement methods for electromagnetic fields of electrical household and similar apparatus with regard to human exposure” or the corresponding IEC 62233 for the USA.
