Comtest Laboratories now provides testing to the growing VoIP market to supplement the ADSL testing facility which provides the Telstra endorsement testing to IP1149 and RCIT.0004.
The company has invested in equipment which enables VoIP products with voice, FXS, FXO or FXD interfaces tested to the latest regulatory requirements of Australia (ACIF standards) and New Zealand (PTC 220).
According to Comtest, it is the first laboratory in Australia to achieve accreditation to AS/NZS 4117. This particular standard is called up in the Australian Telecommunications Labelling Notice for Category A52 equipment (surge protective devices).
The AS/NZS 4117 accreditation supplements Comtest's other overvoltage and overcurrent testing which includes: ITU-T K.44: 2003 (ITU-T K.20, ITU-T K.21, ITU-T K.45), ITU-T K.55: 2002 and ITU-T K.65: 2004.
Comtest can provide safety testing for telecommunications, IT, power supplies and audio/video equipment.
The company has expanded its accreditations to cover uninterruptible power supplies, vacuum cleaners, battery chargers, clocks, shavers, hair clippers, soldering irons and paint stripping guns.
Comtest is accredited to the European Low Voltage Directive requirements for these devices.
Comtest Laboratories is an IECEE CBTL accredited to IEC 60950-1 and IEC 61010-1 which enables Australian manufacturers to gain access to the 38 participating IECEE countries including Europe and the US. The CB scheme report and certificate can be used to access some non-member countries in Asia and South America.
The company also provides a comprehensive range of compliance folder management services to assist Australian and international suppliers.
