Due to strong growth of smart meter installations planned around the world, demand has risen for local testing facilities to help ensure customer designs comply with different country requirements. UL’s Singapore facility provides comprehensive facilities in meter accuracy, performance and EMC testing under one roof. This helps meter manufacturers improve their competence and effectiveness during the product design phase.

In addition, UL meter testing in global facilities is able to cover most of the requirements for access to different countries, including IEC 62052/3/4/5, NMI-M6, EN50470-1/3, ANSI C12 CFE and AS62052/3 series. Customers benefit by using one best lab to serve multi-countries requirements.

“Smart meters play an important role in the delivery of smart energy solutions. This accreditation not only positions UL to provide service to our smart meter customers locally in Asia Pacific, it also opens the opportunity to build partnerships with utilities,” said Wesley Kwok, Engineering Director – Greater Asia  of UL’s Energy and Power Technologies division.

UL’s Singapore lab location will be a central hub for the Asia and Oceania area allowing one local lab to provide testing under one roof with faster technical response. For further inquiries please email UL at smart.meter@ul.com.
