TUV Rheinland Sweden AB, the Swedish subsidiary of the globally active testing service provider, has officially opened its wireless laboratory in Lund.

Numerous customers were invited to the grand opening event on August 31, said a statement from the company.

At the beginning of 2018 Lund was audited and accredited as a certification institution by the Swedish Board for Accreditation and Conformity Assessment (SWEDAC). Since then, the company has been allowed to carry out full compliance testing as an independent testing organisation, it added.

Located at the heart of a technology cluster of research and development companies, manufacturers and integrators, the laboratory is the first of the European TUV Rheinland Wireless Laboratories to specialise in IoT products.

Anders Nordlof, managing director of TUV Rheinland Sweden AB, said: “On a total of 900-sq-m, spread over six individual laboratories, customers will find the entire spectrum of wireless testing options such as Sigfox, LoRa, NB-IoT, ZigBee, 3GPP (2G/3G/LTE), Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, mmW (Radar) up to current 110 GHz and eCall.”

“In addition, the laboratory is equipped with OTA respectively FAR chambers and SAR systems and covers both short range and long range radio technologies,” he said.

Just in time for the official opening, the new SAC 5 chamber - for testing electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) and radio frequency (RF) in the wireless range went into operation.

Nordlof said: “This enables us in accordance with current and future standards to carry out EMC compliance testing services and radio frequency tests in the wireless range in accordance with the applicable requirements in Europe, the US, Canada, Japan and Australia and thus support manufacturers in accessing these markets.”

Stefan Kischka, vice president of wireless/Internet of Things (IoT) at TUV Rheinland, said: “The laboratory in Lund, is one of the milestones with which we are expanding our global commitment to wireless technologies and which will take us a further step forward in fulfilling our TUV Rheinland Wireless Strategy 2020.”
