Add still tests for product variants “, Stefan Buchhold, explains about in case of new components, second source so a replacement component of other manufacturers or improvements of products. In particular product variants play a large role in us, because SMA very consistently oriented towards the needs of the market.” The actual certification process begins that SMA is requesting an offer at UL. SMA has accepted the offer there are UL on its respective departments. The intensive dialogue between the UL Department and the SMA joins experts. “Especially in new product categories, it is often useful that UL in advance, already in the development phase, carries out a prior check, a so-called preliminary for us investigation”, Stefan Buchhold reported. This initial assessment prevents a manufacturer from unpleasant surprises. It was discovered only after the start of production of a product that it does not meet the safety standards in a particular market, it would be extremely expensive to construct the finished product if that were at all possible.
