Many Source Code clients do business in heavily regulated industries. Others require technology that can operate in challenging environments. Source Code ensures these clients have the solutions they need by attaining relevant certifications and building key testing processes into its manufacturing process.
Facilities & Build Process Standards
To ensure products destined for challenging environments will operate reliably, Source Code performs tests on major hardware components both early in the design cycle to mitigate risk at the system level as well as on full prototypes.
As part of this process, Source Code maintains an in-house environmental testing laboratory. This lab conducts tests on relevant solution prototypes to measure levels of:
- Electromagnetic Interference (EMI)
Our “zero defect” build process and standards require technicians to hand-inspect every large system at multiple points during the build and testing process. Each system is also subjected to rigorous additional testing by a proprietary suite of automation and stress testing tools. This means systems arrive 100% operational, reducing time-to-result.
Source Code is certified by TUV USA to meet the requirements of ISO 9001:2015. This standard sets out the criteria for a quality management system, including a strong customer focus, the motivation and implication of top management, the process approach, and continual improvement.
FCC Marking (U.S.)
This certifies that the electromagnetic interference (EMI) from the device is under limits approved by the Federal Communications Commission.
UL 60950 (International)
