We work with one of the leading certification labs and run tons of measurements and tests to get the units ready. The last couple of weeks Sandro and Markus have spent the majority of their time in England in the lab together with the testing officials to get trough all relevant measurements for the remote, dock, brain and powers supplies for certifications like FCC and CE among others.
These tests are not just there to comply with the regulations. There are actually a lot of things being tested that are important in the real world. Some tests as example stress tests the units with strong electronic discharge from the outside and this grants stuff like performance while in a home environments with a lot of RF products.
The officials did not have a standard test procedure for NEEO in their books. The procedure had to be re-defined. The labs have truly never tested such a product category until now! A super compact brain with that many antennae was new to them. Sandro and team had well prepared for that and the lab officials were very please with the "exemplary preparation” (that’s how they called it!). We wrote a lot of test modes to make the certification officials’ life easier
The last 2.5 weeks we went mainly trough FCC relevant tests which all went well! There are a tests left which will be performed by the lab in the beginning of January. I will keep you posted on that.
Here are a some impressions form certification:
