The boom in South Korea as a business location continues unabated. Machine and electronics manufacturers who want to tap into this lucrative East Asian market need KCs certification (also called KCs Mark, where "s" stands for Safety) for their products. This is the South Korean government's way of ensuring that potentially dangerous products do not enter the market.
Based on the Industrial Health and Safety Act, the Korea Occupational Safety and Health Agency (KOSHA) requires KCs Ex certification for South Korea of explosion-proof electrical components.
During testing, the electrical and mechanical safety as well as the electromagnetic compatibility of the product are evaluated according to a catalog of criteria. Only when all the specifications have been met is the KCs seal issued, allowing access to the South Korean market.
REINEKE's servo valve coil has also successfully undergone this procedure and is now in certification status for approval.
