The Cable Lab
Cable Testing and Expert Technical Support
Born out of a desire for technical excellence, The Cable Lab is testament to our ongoing commitment to product quality and compliance and central to our customer commitment. We remain vigilant of the issue of non-compliance and sub-standard cables that exists across the industry and so undertake tests on over 100 different cables each week from across our cable portfolio. Our highly qualified technical and industry experts include members of European and International technical committees and consultants to regulatory bodies. This unrivalled wealth of knowledge and expertise is on hand to lead our in-house quality assurance and to deliver expert cable technical support and services.
ISO/IEC 17025 UKAS Accredited Cable Testing
Our independent cable laboratory is accredited by the United Kingdom Accreditation Service (UKAS) to ISO/IEC 17025 - the international reference standard for a test facility - producing universally accepted test results, reports and certifications. Through this accreditation, our laboratory is recognised under the European Accreditation Multilateral Agreement (EA MLF), the International Accreditation Forum (IAF) and the International Laboratory Accreditation Cooperation (ILAC), which in their own words means "Accredited once, accepted everywhere."
In this centre of technical excellence we combine experts who can share their knowledge to support customer projects, alongside a rigorous testing regime for both our own Quality Assurance and third-party cable assessments across all cable types. Our specialist MV test facility adds an extra level of testing for cables rated over 3kV.
Eland Cables, through The Cable Lab, also holds two BSI Kitemark accreditations, recognised globally as a symbol of trust and quality - the BSI Cable Verification Kitemark and the BSI RoHS Trusted Kitemark.
