I’m doing a design which needs to be certified in Europe, how does the UL 217 testing help me?
Right now it’s generally accepted that UL 217 is the most stringent test to pass, which is why we targeted it. EN14604 standard is close to the UL 217 tests with a few exceptions mainly the liquid heptane test and the dazzle test. We have taken some data on the dazzle test and our sensor performs well, and while we don’t have data on the liquid heptane test, it’s our understanding that it looks a lot like the flaming polyurethane data. So we can’t say we tested to the EN spec at this time, we believe that our solution should work.
