Power management company Eaton has announced that its XLM Supercapacitor product (XLM-62R1137A-R) completed the CE mark self-certification for meeting the European safety requirements. Eaton is the first manufacturer to complete the testing and certification process for a supercapacitor product. Additionally, the company completed the UL testing and certification process for the XLM product and will add the UL mark as a registered component.
“We are proud to have the CE mark on our XLM supercapacitor product for our customers in Europe,” said Jason Lee, Eaton’s global product manager for supercapacitors. “Both the CE mark and the UL certification are examples of our continued commitment to providing our customers with not only the most powerful and efficient product, but also the safest, most reliable supercapacitor products available on the market.”
CE marking is a certification mark that indicates conformity with the essential legislative health, safety, and environmental protection requirements defined by Product Directives for products sold within the European Economic Area (EEA). The marking is also found on products sold outside the EEA that are manufactured in, or designed to be sold in, the EEA. The CE marking is the manufacturer’s declaration that the product meets the requirements of the applicable EC directives.
